Only thing in his comments that irked me is he claims the budget was based on being top 6 and a cup run. As far as I can see, and based on current form, both are unlikely but not impossible.
We are, if you put a positive spin on it, 3 or 4 terrific results away from a hugely successful season. Given the appalling start we had, surely this is the ONE opportunity we have to look up and try to make it happen, rather than just give up hope.
He's a fud the way he words things. I kind of read it as a red rag to a bull for the next few weeks, sort of 'prove me wrong Tommy', but to the punter in the stands it reads like abject defeat.
