    Describing Adkins’ time at Scunthorpe as “mixed” belies a lack of research and appreciation. His time at Glanford Park was our most successful since then 1960s by some distance. Far from mixed.

    The best pre-season appraisal of the team I’ve read so far, none of the lazy 20th position that the Guardian et al have predicted, and also not the overly confident mid-table prediction I’ve occasionally seen as well.

    While I agree we could do with more Premier League experience on the pitch, I’m not really convinced Adkins’ lack of top flight experience will be a problem. Certainly didn’t do Paul Lambert or Brendan Rogers any harm last year.
