Re: Rochdale

I couldn't watch it - was fairly sure it was gonna go over the bar!

Rochdale

I've seen fewer matches than usual this season - this will only be my 9th home match of the season - but I've yet to see us win at home. (Luckily I have seen two away wins.) To be honest though, I'd take the point that sees us mathematically safe.

Re: Going Down??

I dont really, I’m not keen on Wimbledon, the hipster hoofers! It's more that it would be very apt that those who tried to get ahead by stealing a football club ended up a division below those who reformed that club from nothing. Whether one likes the way AFC Wimbledon play has little to do with it.

Re: Going Down??

There was another season post-Tranmere that we flirted with relegation. I think it might have been 1992-93. I remember a 1-0 win at Oakwell that pretty much confirmed our survival. Looking back at the season history, we must then have finished fairly strongly as the record says we finished 14th.

Re: Going Down??

And the added bonus of Franchise being effectively relegated. Hope Wimbledon stay up.

Re: Going Down??

Tonight I can only really see home wins for Rochdale and Oldham. I would consider it a successful evening if just one of them failed to win.

Re: Going Down??

Yeah, if you look at the predicted table and change their prediction of us drawing with Rochdale into a loss for us, then we survive on goal difference. All it would then take is a tonking by Blackburn to send us down. And that's with tweaking only the results in our games, and no others.

Re: What constitutes acceptable?

I'd be surprised if Hall left, but the other 3 are definitely uncertain to be with us next season. I didn't answer the original question, but would have been happy with mid-table. A little disappointed with how this season panned out, but relieved that we're (just about) safe now. Given we sacked ou...

Re: Going Down??

Phew, major result yesterday (and one of the tensest second halves I've ever sat through.) Bookies now have us at 33/1 against going down, though tbh if we lost at home to Rochdale, it wouldn't take *that* unlikely a set of results for us to finish 21st. A draw should be enough though.

Re: Going Down??

This prediction table still has us staying up. (I first checked it before the Fleetwood game and it had evidently predicted a draw in that, as we now have one fewer point predicted.) https://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/league-one/league-table/predicted I still fear the worst, but then I generally do ...

Re: Going Down??

Sacking a manager (whoever they are) when you are in the upper half of the table is a very "modern football" thing to do, and it's also bloody stupid, unless they have committed a major transgression (and winding up some of our less patient fans with a shushing gesture does not count). It was hard t...

Re: Going Down??

I've been watching the prices - in the last week we've moved from 12-1 against going down to 5-1. I actually suspect it's more likely than that latter price suggests. I'm worried.

Re: Big pile of poo-sbury (not really)

Yeah, Oldham, Fleetwood and Rochdale are the crucial games now, I feel. Six points from those should hopefully just about do it. Anything less, and the other games look pretty tough...
