I would like to think we have enough quality in our squad to put together a 4 or even a 7 winning game run.

Interested to know what your basing this on. Is it just pure optimism? What have you seen so far that makes you think this is even remotely possible?
Nothing i've seen since he arrived suggests he/we are capable of winning the next 4. If Evans was still here to predict that would of been ballsy.
My guess is your just trying to be controversial, all be it with good intentions.
If we win the next 4 ill eat my hat.
Not being controversial just a Stags fan who as faith in the team I follow. If I didn't it would be no point every season buying a season ticket wearing the colours n telling people I'm proud to say I follow my home team n it's been like that since 1974 from the age of 12. Like I said the other day you don't pick your team they pick you.
I thought the same after the better showings against Accrington and Luton, but for me Crewe and Stevenage has shown that this team and manager really do not have the metal to deliver such a drastic short term change of form - the sort of form change that must happen now if our season is to continue. I don't see how the Crewe and Stevenage games will differ to the raspberry, Port Vale, Yeovil and Crawley. If we couldn't dispatch Crewe and Stevenage with everything at stake in those games, what evidence do we have to suggest we can get any more than the odd point here and there against the others?
Of course I'm hoping I am bang wrong here, of course I do, but the reality is something too big to ignore. Something is terminally wrong in that dressing room, not the club, the dressing room. Someone said changing the manager now with a view to pulling out all the stops to get the last playoff place would be as much a lottery as keeping the status quo. I agreed then, when that comment was first made, but if we do want something drastic to change NOW then a drastic measure like bringing in a new manager now might be the only way to give us a chance of the upturn in form needed to get the last spot.
It's then the question of 'raspberry or bust' now, simply to try and obtain the last spot this time around, or accepting that our chances are all but gone this term, and reassess / rebuild in the summer - with or without DF is another question. Fans will probably want the first of these but the owners will probably be inclined to accept another L2 season to rebuild some sort of stability on the pitch.
