Backed to the hilt and still came short when it mattered.
We've played 2 games this season, win on Saturday and we're level with where we were last season.
Although as long as we're within touching distance JD can have a roll of the dice, it's about how you perform when the pressure builds in the final run it which will make or break your season.
Yes we did fail, but it was a great season.
This season just doesn't feel the same.
I want JD to succeed and get us promoted ,but I think it's a big ask given his experience.
I don't think last season was a great season, all I remember it for is losing the last 3 games and going into the play offs with no hope.
Still don't know how DF managed not to get promoted with attacking options of Walker, CJ, Grant, Kahn and Rose.
So just because this season doesn't "feel" the same we shouldn't get behind JD?
My opinion on the start is we overrated last season's defence which wasn't as bulletproof as it has been made out.
We need a dominant centre half to come in and take a hold of the defence.
In both league games JD didn't panic after going behind, like DF did multiple times by making first half substitutes, he changed the system and if we would have been clinical we would have won both games.
The defensive issues need addressing but in terms of selection and systems I'm not sure what else JD could have done differently so far.
