Suddenly we're time travelling to February and the business end of the season. Enjoyed this one.

Shaun Winter divides opinion but I have to say that its been good to see his cameos through Series 2 and how he's matured as a person and as a Dad. Give me Shaun over Will Ferrell every time.

Star of this one is Anthony Forde and although we knew that he had off field problems this goes into the detail. And its very personal.

Bonus Top Red points to all those who cleared the pitch for the Southend game. I know a couple of lads who started at 6:00am, shovelled snow for 6 hours and then worked their turnstile. Good to see that effort recognised. That 3 points was for them.

Yes enjoyed this one. Really feel for Fordey and family and kudos to them opening up for the cameras. Wonder whether his current absence is to do with these issues too?

Great to see a focus on Young which I'm sure won't be universally popular on here! Great job to those clearing the snow.

Re Shaun W I get its a redemption arc and good he regrets the Harris comments from season 1 but I still find him grating and dont see why we need so much of him
 
I thought Forde was actually injured this year? I didn't realize he had a long leave and those family issues last year, makes his pivotal late-season goal even more poignant.

This was a very good day in, day out recap of the most pivotal point of the season outside of the Notts and post-Notts games. The Shaun stuff seemed a little out of place with the rest of it on the one hand, on the other I get that his grind to get through days is a prism for the team's on-field grind. I'm not sure Young got two minutes of screentime in this before that episode but it was the best one to put him in haha.
 
Will just skip the SWinter bits. thanks for the heads up
 
I had never met shaun before he coached my nephew's football team last spring. Totally different person when you meet him than what you see on the show.
 
I think the lad comes across absolutely fine this series.

Clearly learned alot from making a knob of himself last series so fair play to him. Some jealousy creeping through methinks
 
I totally switch off when SW starts talking, cant be arsed with what he says. Comes across as a complete knob to me. The whole farce with getting tickets for a game direct from Rob stinks, too. If you're in that clique, then you're sorted.
 
He's still the exact same, don't you worry about that.

Definitely jealously commenting on here. A bit cringy.
 
Haven't got anything positive to say about him and don't want to be too hateful as to a degree I think the producers are exploiting him, but you need to get real if you think he's in any position to attract jealousy from people.
