I’m looking forward to just getting the final two games of the season over with now and heading into the summer transfer window.
I daresay I’m not the only one thinking like that as well in our fanbase right now with their certainly being an appetite among many of us to just get into the off-season.
Whilst we wait for that, though, Phil Hay has written his latest column with the subject concerning Victor Orta and his role at the club.
Indeed, Hay has called for him to change the way he works and for the club to follow suit in an as ever insightful piece, to which many have responded.

Let’s take a look at the reaction:
Tbf to Orta, the budget he's been given so far isn't high enough

Is high enough. No worry there. Don't need massive budget. Many clubs have proved that. However I do not blame Orta. Just the way it goes.

Lots of players of the free transfer list this summer, why not spend that 4 million on higher wages for these tried and tested players…?

So do we like Orta now or not? I’m confused. When we were top he was great. When the U23’s couldn’t buy a win he was hated. When we dropped down the league he was still hated but when the U23’s started winning he was great again. So which is it?

Move 3 or 4 under 23s up into the first squad and add Carlos Corber too the first team coaching

He's had one year in the role, a very short time for an SD. He needs to be given another summer/season to show his worth. The pressure and criticism of him is far too extreme.

Mbakogu will be a waste of money. We all know it will. The move to sign him Should hav been called off months ago.

Certainly, I can see why some might be coming to his defence because there has been some good work done by him but, for me, he still has a lot to prove.
This summer, then, if he does not show he can sign top players regularly, I think could be his last window at the club.
