Well that was as great as it was unexpected!   It was a really good game overall, they had more control of the ball as you'd expect but we looked very good on the break and offered a threat

I don’t think the “hysterics” are just down to defeats - the performance against Scunthorpe was disgusting and no amount of wins at Exeter will change that.  If the same happens on Tuesday people have

Perhaps time for the fanbase to rein in the hysterics after every defeat and give the coach the space to try and build something.

What’s a fair return of goals for Rowe this season - in your opinion? 

I’m actually looking forward to his answer on this. He can’t be expecting many goals from him with him rating him so low. 😊

That’s a good question but I reckon a top striker in whatever league he is in would expect / hope to be scoring once in every 3 games on average.......so in my opinion I would be looking at 15 league goals as par

Fabulous result and 2 fabulous strikes, well done to the players today 

 

I think we are a team that can hurt the opposition when allowed to play but are liable to struggle where teams try and bottle it up or battle hard physically. 

 

Today makes up very much for the poor result last weekend. 

 

One good sign this season is our ability to score and I expect our chance conversion rate is pretty decent.

He didn’t ask what I expected him to score he asked what I thought a fair return was to justify hid billing ....completely different concepts

So somebody who you don’t particularly rate should be scoring 15 goals this season?? How illogical is that?!?!

When did we last have a striker that scored 15 goals? Never mind the small fact that Rowe has stepped up a level. After all, his previous ‘non-league’ status is something that you refer to often.

I think there's a balance, but after 25 years of being shit, we have a right to bemoan defeats as they're an indication that history is likely to repeat itself (especially as they might mean we slipping out of the league completely).

 

Defeats don't get me down at all anymore, but absolutely buzzing after that today.

 

Everyone put a shift in - lack of talent I can handle, but lack of effort I can't and that lot will get my support of they turn in performances like that every week.  Fair play to the players and Kewell today.

Try and keep up....I said I believe  about 15 is about the par return for a good striker in any league....I did not say I expect Rowe to score 15

TBF to BCD IMO he's saying a good striker should get 15 goals out of 45 starts. He doesn't think he's a good striker. Funny though, Harry Kane was MOTM for Spurs without scoring.

Fancy a tenner he scores fifteen league goals?

Eh???

 

That’s what ‘top strikers’ do??? 

He’s trying to cover all bases. If Rowe does score 15 he’ll say that’s what’s expected of him.

If he doesn’t score 15 he can revert to his original stance of he never rated him particularly highly anyway, and it will have proved his point in his eyes.

Perhaps it's time that Mo rein in on his team selection interference and give the coach space to try and build something.

Haha.

 

I know exactly what you mean. 

 

For all the shit, it’s easy to forget how good a great result feels. 
 

But it's still Exeter! Not to be a snob but were league cup finalists, double fa cup semi finalists in the not so decent past, founders of the prem! And were celebrating a victory against Exeter, great result but depressing over all!

If Rowe scores 15 I will admit I was wrong and I suspect there might be the odd poster or 2 on here who might remind me 😀

Forest are double European champions. All clubs have history. For the size of club - ours is rich. 
 

However we are where we are, and in a pure footballing sense a good result is good result.

You actually said one in three games. Don't worry, I'll do the maths to get the pro rata target at the end of the season.
