    We are either going to be feeling s hit or absolutely ecstatic does anybody think the lads can still do it?

    Nope. It’s done now. Can see us dropping further down the table as well.

    Not if they play like they did tonight. I said after the Charlton game I thought we’d blown it (only half believing it). Now I think it’s true unfortunately. I would obviously love to be wrong.

    Really doesn't look like it.

    All down to whether or not we can start defending beyond northern league level. We have just conceded four horror goals in a row, and if that bleeding isn't stopped we have absolutely no chance.

    But LJ has spun a few winning runs in the past so you never know, but even that might not be enough.Hull and Pboro must be bouncing now. The pressure is off them and I think they will both coast home.

    L
    Lee Johnson is certainly going to earn his money over the next six games.

    6 games
    6 different line ups
    6 different formations
    6 mass substitutions when chasing the game


    Absolutely no chance we are going up this season. Automatic promotion has gone, and we will get murdered in the play offs

    No, and I never really understood the mass "we are going to be champions" wave. I never thought we looked like automatic at any point in terms of results or performances.

    We can however win playoffs. But they will have to overcome the usual mass negativity surrounding them.

    I haven’t a clue mate. Nothings gone as I thought this season. Wasn’t convinced how LJ had us set up early on but we relentlessly pushed ourselves into automatic contention Thought we would really kick on after Peterborough but we have made an arse of it Wouldn’t put it past us kicking on again but will it be enough. Saturday will tell. God knows which Sunderland will turn up

    Well we’ve managed with the cup so it’s one more hurdle to overcome.

    Yes we can still do it. We will need an upturn in form of course. If we do get it then Hull are the ones to hunt. Win the game in hand and beat them there is 2 points in it. They still have to go away to Lincoln and Charlton.

    Obviously I am going positive but that is absolutely what the squad needs to do.

    Anything is possible but having to rely on others to slip up is asking alot. Performances have been dire recently so it's a No from me. Playoffs our best option.....sadly.

    Promotion was over on Saturday. The win in the tinpot cup has got to their heads I think. I always said we should have bombed up out of it at first opportunity. Talk of it being a turning point for the club etc. Was ludicrous. We need shot of nearly all of them.

    We might be better off losing to Blackpool to stop Oxford or Charlton making the play offs now, i would take this top 6 now. The 2 best teams are going up, if that daft points per game did not happen last season Peterborough would have went up and we would be where they are.

    As someone once said - "it's a funny old game".
    It's not looking great but there will be a few freak results for the other top teams as the pressure mounts, we never do it the easy way but I still think we are not that far away. Sort out the midfield and tighten up in defence and we could soon be back on track.

    Probably the stupidest quote I’ve ever read on this forum and there’s been a few.

    It was always coming, getting results whilst playing poor, playing with players out of position can be OK short term, but not long term, especially since you are playing 50% of a back four out of position
