Re: Going Down??

Cracking results tonight, 1 point from two home games for Oldham and Rochdale - lest we forget, these teams are in the bottom eight for a reason, they aren't very good.

We'll be fine now.

Re: Going Down??

Well actually he's wrong. We could theoretically draw one of our games and still go down. And we won't be safe at 21.35 (or even 21.45) tonight whatever happens. As to the rest of it: b) Gillingham would have to take at least two points from their last two (they haven't won since March 10th, and ha...

Re: Going Down??

Yes - he is right albeit a couple of those teams could get one less point and survive if they won one of their matches by a substantial margin or we got tonked in our two games due to goal difference.

Relegation looks very unlikely and we'll know more at 21.35 tonight.

Wigan warblings

I went last night and really quite enjoyed it. Wigan had the majority of the possession and chances but were by no means dominant. Annoying to concede so late but given that I expected nothing from the evening, I wasn't too disappointed. Good to see Nelson get 90 minutes, he and Dickie were excellen...

Re: Karl Robinson

I keep reading that Robinson talks a good game: does that mean people think he talks sense or that he could bullshit for England? After listening to him post natch on Saturday I could just visualise him kissing the badge! What's the point in bigging 'em up just a few days after proclaiming a whole ...

Re: Going Down??

I would add to that list getting rid of Pep in the first place. He managed to get more out of this team than Faz or Robinson with less resources as well. If you take a look at Rochdale's run in (4 games out of 6 at home and a away game at ours), Oldhams and AFC Wombles I would argue we are favourit...

Hi RR, yes it's your point! Do you want to post your own Boot before anyone answers on mine? If you can post one before 3pm Saturday I'll delete the one I've done but if you don't/can't see this post by then we'll go with mine. Hope this is ok?
thanks - let's go with yours!
