'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Things are coming together

We are in an awesome run of form; 13pts from the last 15 available is as good as anyone in this division.

It is not just the return of points that is impressive we are very much starting to gel as a side with the individual quality that we have among the squad gelling into a solid unit to give us a high level of team performance - and football is a team game, so this is what we need and the team spirit, and togetherness, is very much there.

In many ways this is similar to what we had last season and are again seeing most, arguably even more so this season, players pulling on the famous blue shirt that DO want to play for us - and that is something that I know, speaking for myself, I very much like and could not ask more than.

So, the things that we need to do on the pitch are very much coming together nicely.

Of course we will lose again, and may well lose a few in a row, that is football and football especially at this level as there is very little between the vast majority in this league which, for me, makes it such an exciting league and is seeing so many of us enjoy things as it is highly entertaining even if the quality overall is sometimes lacking.

We have the football side of things sorted, or at least coming on nicely, now for the off-the-field things to finally get sorted out so we can come out of administration.

So many dates have been mentioned as to when this and that is happening, yet we still wait... I guess really we should take this as a positive thing as it must mean that everything is being done to ensure that our best interests, as a club that can get over our troubles, move on and live on from this, are being done, right?

By all accounts the revised admin paperwork is now in, and following last Friday's statement, we must 'surely' be inching ever closer to actually exiting admin. Even more so with the fact that another player came in this week, albeit on loan.

Once this happens, things really will have come together.

Ensuring that actions carried out are realistic, and within our means, this allows us the chance to learn from previous errors, in which case we 'should' come back from this stronger.

If our current form on the pitch is anything to go by then we are certainly getting that side covered, now for the final boxes to be ticked that need to for our admin exit to be confirmed...

    I think you are right Rug, got that fortress Fratton feeling coming back, I'm even beginning to suspect my 10 weekend bets might even break even this year. I hope the club will announce that they have done everything required to exit admin in time for the Hull game, I'm even thinking we might get a win inthis fixture; a bl00dy rarity I seem to recall.

    Things are coming together very very nicely aren't they. Of course its much too soon to think about things like play-offs but I can't help but cast half an eye that way, and think about another trip to Wemberlee for the final. Stranger things have happened! But that aside, it would be very very nice to finally come out of administration. We keep getting promises that it's soon, and it keeps not quite happening. Soon? Please?
