Location: Nottingham. 800 years ago outlaws stole from the rich. Little has changed here

So, at various points last season there were discussions around excuses / reasons for the poor season

One of the main reasons was the flooding of the training ground. Some posters didn't think this was a valid reason for the poor season.

Now, with the benefit of fast forwarding to today, I would say that, although not the only factor in the season, the loss of the training ground for preseason was clearly a massive blow to our hopes last year.

We have achieved a huge amount this season, and have walked away with the biggest prize again, with basically the same squad of players.

I said it was down to the floods and losing the training ground and that we'd be back challenging in 2017. I said after the start of the season when the attack was struggling and Cas hammered us we'd still be challenging. I said after Cas beat us a few weeks ago that we would win the GF. I'm know as McDermott's biggest backer on here........and I took some real stick, insults and mocking on here for all the above.

Feels pretty sweet right now.

It was a combination of factors, the floods being the overriding one. If we don't lose the training facility we don't get so many injuries, and the overall fitness would have been closer to where it should be.

Anyone who dared to mention the floods was called out for making excuses. It wasn't an excuse, it was a reason.
