Q: What have you made of your team’s start to the season?

A: The start to the season was excellent, and for a while I thought we might be pushing for promotion or at least the top six. But we're a shambles now. Have been since before Christmas.

Q: What are your opinions on your manager?

A: Johnson has to go. Managed to screw up one of the best starts to a Championship season in our history, and bought in a load of useless players. Not good enough.

Q: Who is your favourite current player?

A: Aden Flint.

Q: Who is your favourite ever player?

A: Lee Trundle. A true entertainer!

Q: Who do you feel has been the club’s best and worst summer signing?

A: Staying up.
