When is appropriate?, when we've kicked it at Lincoln? Certainly not at Cheltenham or colchester. Team could not have got off quick enough.
He means: the rest of the staff when appropriate.
He doesn't mean that he, Raynor and the players go over when appropriate.
That was how it sounded from the video interview. I agree it may look different when written out, because you don't know where the pauses are. That is why I always like to hear the interviews, not just read them.
As an aside, the players did applaud the fans at Cheltenham and Colchester. I saw them.
