Cameron Heeps worst number 3 from a visiting team I’ve seen at Swindon for many years.

I'd treat your comment with a modicum of respect if you even attended. 

He beat Doyle on Monday,  just saying.

Heeps and Howarth are big concerns. Will be a massive concern to the management I'm sure once Heeps goes to reserve and Morris moves into the top 5. It would be totally wrong and unfair on Morris, doing really well but still should be down at reserve. I wouldn't be surprised with the backward thinking of Peter Adams that Morris would be the one to get the chop after a couple of low scores at 2nd string.

That seems to be the case for most teams in all  leagues. It's generally someone doing a decent job paying the price for 1 or 2 that aren't when redeclaring.

Nothing new or surprising here.

Wasn' backward thinking this time last year with Schlein and Riss coming in was it.

Adam's "backward thinking" has got him 9 league titles in his locker, and no doubt he will get to his target of 10 before he retires. How many have the Stars got ? Oh that's right, ZERO.

I think Howarth is still feeling the affects of his injury at the moment and will get better with time... he was scoring big scores before his injury.

Wouldn't call it backward thinking, would be highly sensible.. harsh, but sensible.

I can't see much happening tbh. They made their bed when they went with Thorssell over Lindgren.

It's a team built to win at home and try and pick up a pt or two away and maybe get lucky and catch a team on an off night. They had the chance at Rye and blew it.

No worries BW they'll have another big chance next Wednesday, as Poole try to get their averages down further!:rolleyes:;)

Backward thinking Adams ?? Explain your reasoning please...

He's not the most charismatic granted but I don't think he's backward thinking..

Adams & CVS know that they are coming to the twilight of their custodianship of Wolves. The only thing they're thinking is will they get a return on any investments they might make. Not necessarily the wrong decision from their point of view but may not be ideal for the supporters.

I do hope I'm wrong but this smacks to me of the sort of acceptance of failure that blighted the fallow years. '3 points from 3 away meetings'. I think that is known at election time as expectation management, in this case, very low expectations. I wonder what message it sends to the riders?:(

Failure?

Adams is no fool. 

If wolves achieve the target he has set and then maintain that mediocre (lol!) form all season (12 from 4 at home and 4 from 4 away) they will end up with 56 points, easily enough to qualify for the league cup.

More points chucked away, easy to see why.

Never mind, it's encouraging.
