Copied from the Championship forum. Half Season Review How has your season gone so far? Very meh. Most of the positive momentum built up by the club in the past few years was lost in a few weeks over the summer and our new manager and the team he's built are yet to convince they can be anything more than average at best. Best moment? Beating Bolton despite playing most of the game with ten men. Biggest disappointment? We broke the habit of a lifetime in the summer and actually spent some money, smashing our transfer record which had stood since 1979! However, the guy we signed - 21-year-old Cypriot Andreas Makris - has been completely underwhelming. There seems to be no plan for how to use him, I'm not sure he's even played a full 90 minutes and he looks no better than the type of young player we normally pick up on a free. The whole transfer seems a little bit fishy to me. Getting hammered by Scunthorpe and Rochdale has become the norm in recent years, but was still disappointing, as was going out of both cups to lower league clubs in the first round. Star performer? Without our keeper Neil Etheridge, we'd probably be bottom four. Contract is up in the summer and I expect he'll be on his way to the Championship or a better-paying League One side. Revised predicted finish? Tipped us to finish 9th, but think around 15th to 17th is more likely. Best side you have played? Both Scunny and Rochdale humiliated us. Worst side you have played? Both Swindon and Vale were supposed to be very poor. Best opposition players? Can't argue with Morris' stats at Scunny. Main worry/weakness for the rest of the season? Might sound harsh, but I worry that most of our wins have been down to luck or the opposition's ineptitude rather than our own ability. Take away our wins over Bolton and Sheff Utd, which probably had more to do with luck than judgement and we'd only be three points above the drop zone in a very poor division where you won't need to be especially good to challenge for the playoffs. Injury List Florent Cuvellier and Isiah Osbourne are fit at the moment, but have been crocked for most of the campaign. The latter has been very impressive when he's played and if Cuvellier can get back to the player he was a few years ago we will have a very good midfielder. Any transfer activity expected in January? Probably another loan or two, nothing major though.
