The jury is still out on Revs, for me. I can't help feeling like he is a more cautious/defensive minded manager and that we will always see the team set up with the primary objective being not to concede. I also have question marks on what he considers a decent striker. If List is played on the wing for any of our remaining games, I think I will probably be firmly moved into the "he's a shit manager" camp.

I simply can't agree that the team is shit, though. It's just not true. We aren't top-of-the league quality, but we certainly aren't shit. We have some weak links, and our strength outside our starting 11 isn't great, but there are a few decent players in there, and some very good ones. Cuthbert and TVC is an excellent L2 CB partnership. List is good for 15-20 goals a season if he is played up front consistently. Pett is top-end League Two quality. Wildin would make an excellent League Two winger. I also think Osborne will become a quality player for us, whether that's as a wide-playmaker or in the middle. We need to fill in the gaps (full backs, left wing) and add another hard-working pressing forward (so we aren't so reliant on Newton playing 90 mins every game) as well as a combative midfielder to replace Vincelot. But the foundations are there for us to push on next season. We just need to be more ambitious.

My only question mark is whether Revs is the man to push us forward, or if he is going to continue with the 'we are a small team and should be happy with a point' mentality. I think if we start next season with a negative approach to games, I will lose faith in Revs pretty quickly, and I suspect many others will too.
