Positivity, now that’s a word that has been bandied about many a time since I decided to grab the bull by the horns and dedicate more time to this site.
On several occasions, I’ve been accused of being too negative and not being prepared to give Graeme Jones a chance to build a Hatters side we can be proud of.
Thankfully, I’ve got a thick skin and with the support of several others who visit this site who share my opinion, I DO have the good of our club at heart.
Our current predicament, even though I’ve tried to be positive, has already convinced me that it’s back to life in League One next season.
But if, as I suspect, that is to be the case then some serious questions need to be asked in the summer, the main one being the position of who’ll be in the managerial hot seat to lead us back into the promised land that the Championship, for a club of our stature, is.
Trawling the social media sites, it is becoming almost impossible to find any posts that support Graeme Jones staying at the club, that air of positivity I mentioned has been swept away by the negativity 21 defeats in 31 games brings.
Okay, things could have been so different, last time out, when Luton, if they’d taken their chances, would have beaten Cardiff City, but we don’t live in a world of – what-ifs!
We’re at the stage where the support, as can be seen from the posts below, Graeme Jones is living on borrowed time, but just how much is the debatable point:
Arrogant, stubborn, clueless.
NJ appointed experienced assistants to challenge him and learn from. GJ so weak as to appoint an echo chamber grateful for a job who’s taught him nothing.
Terrible manager. 2nd worst in 30 years

Anyone care to mention who the worst was?
Blokes an idiot. Sucked the life out of the club. The turnaround from May is something else. Staying up was always a big ask but since November it’s been embarrassing. Get rid of him now, there’s no way in a million years he’ll get us out of L1. Well there is actually, to L2!

Looking at the above, are we, if Graeme Jones is kept, heading for a Portsmouth style free-fall back down the leagues?
Pretty much where I'm at, would have been fine with finishing in bottom 3 as it was always a huge task to stay up but I just don't see us finishing above mid table next season.

Now that is an eye-opening thought.
But, returning to that air of positivity I’m constantly being asked to purvey, could Graeme Jones do himself a huge favour against Sheffield Wednesday and give Danny Hylton a game?
It’s just a thought or is the gaffer just too set in his ways and as Margaret Thatcher one said – not for turning?
Your thoughts, in our comment facility, on any of the above ramblings, would be most welcome.
Should Jones Give Danny Hylton A Game Against Sheffield Wednesday?
