That was the question I was asked in Melbourne yesterday. I am now back home and when I got to Singapore I heard of our 2-3 defeat at home by Watford. We took the lead, one of our strikers actually scored two goals, yet we still failed to win. Phil Parkinson talked of an air of resignation and this tells the tale of a team that has lost all confidence.
I used to watch League 1 football now and then when I went to Rushden and Diamonds games. Compared with League 2, there were fewer agricultural clearances and the game was played at a faster pace. However, there was occasionally some woeful defending which allowed goals to be scored which would not have been possible in the top two divisions.
Next season we are going to see a mixture of journeymen and youngsters. Some pessimists think we will go straight down to League 2 which, given our high fixed costs, would threaten the future of the club. I think we are more likely to be mid-table on the fringes of the play offs.
Those who complained about mid-table mediocrity in the Premiership should reflect on what they wished for, because we could now face the same in League 1.
