Face it we have hardly set the world alight with any measure of consistency this season. The time is now to do that, for without it we'll be grasping at straws for the playoffs come May.
I dont think Mansfield Town will ever set the world alight and to improve season upon season is always the goal.
I believe we over achieved last season and finished 7th , with 5 first team players out in the second half at promotion chasing Bradford we got a draw which was a excellent result
Only 7 points of safety with 18 games to go, We lost two top players in Hawkins and Lapslie which gave us a bit of cash for new players.
Hartigan out for the long term and possibly Oates to. , Events at the club challenge our progress, saying we would like automatic promotion does not make it so.
Mansfield have never been a regular league 1 club , so why now sitting 6th should we be disappointed.
Record season tickets, fans returning a feel good factor within the club,
Oh and Bishop St still a wreck moving forward costs money , and while the club tries to be self supporting, i embrace league football and look forward to promotion.
And to challenge league 1 when the time is right and enjoy watching the team progress with the stadium and infrastructure as one unit
