Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we're not involved in a real relegation scrap like last season when we ultimately got relegated from League One. I'm just not enjoying the lull in news and passion coming from the final games of this year.
It's absolutely nobody's fault that this is the case. Okay, well maybe it's Mark McGhee's, because we're no longer tormented by the fear of dropping out the football-league. But in all seriousness, our current mediocrity is just a byproduct of our good form since Christmas and that means we have nothing to worry about right now. That's a positive thing.

Until after our final game against Dagenham when news will switch to who we're retaining, releasing and signing, we'll have to enjoy the intimate nature of very slow news days. We're going through the motions but hopefully, seeing as we have a very winnable run-in, we can notch up a few more wins to encourage supporters and potential transfer targets that we certainly are moving in the right direction.
I'm grateful to Mark McGhee for the fact we're in this mediocre position following the negativity surrounding our club in 2011. Progress is being made and pride has been restored. As the man himself said on Thursday though, the real challenge comes next season.
