I doubt we will get Europe but more realistically this run-in will give Carlo the opportunity to confirm his ideas going forward with new acquisitions identified and the hangers-on moved on. Come on, Mr Brands – you know you can do it.

My pre-lockdown realistic (in my head anyway) had us 10th on 48 points.
We'll never know how things might have turned out as everything's changed forever!

So far his motivational and tactical competence is hardly better than our other failed managers. I do not include Big Dunc in that list of disappointments. He did infuse the squad with some fighting spirit.
In the recent Chelsea game, I did not see a glimmer of better things to come. Despite his own huge list of injuries, it was painfully clear that Lampard was head and shoulders the superior manager. Carlo's team selection, game plan plus choice and timing of subs were average at best.
