    Next up for City a tough trip away to Oakwell. Despite their low lying position the Tykes have had an upturn in form of late (including a three nil thumping of Fulham) and shouldn't be underestimated.

    And with just 10 games left of the season.....

    Div I
    • Despite an impressive lead at the top of the First Division, the MIGHTY Blue Sheep has been toppled by an impressive run from @ninian opinion, who has a 5 points margin at the summit and is looking to add to his 2016 Euro's Trophy. It is far from over and @bluescull has an outside shout whilst looking to secure a return to Top 4
    • Despite finishing 2nd & 3rd in recent seasons, @Rumney Bluebird's form had fallen off a cliff for much of this season and it looked like he wasn't going to put up much of a fight in the relegation scrap. However, a big 5 points against Forest have lit a bonfire at the bottom and long established top tier stalwarts @BluefromBridgend & @ccfcremotesupport have been dragged into the battle to stay up.
    • Whilst @taffthefish's final day relegation two season ago was harsh, it looks like achieving an immediate bounce back has been a step too far. He needs at least a 7 point swing over the next games...
    TRIVIA - Two members of the top flight have been ever present since 2011. Can you name them?

    Div II
    • @BrizzleBluebird keeps up the tradition of a strong debut season and until last week looked to be cruising to promotion. However, back the chasing pack have come led by @FrankfurterBlue & @blueturk the cat who enjoyed good results against Brentford. Furter is looking for a straight return after a miserable first bite at the top flight and former 2nd Tier Champion Blueturk has not competed at that level since a two season stay (that I had long forgotten about ) between 2013 & 2015.
    • Three Playoff spots are probably up for grabs, currently held by @clingo, @william5551 & @mustyfrog who could all yet crash the automatic promotion party with a strong run of form in their final 10 games. @Oldsparkey & @Jay-Rede are not too far off either <ok>

    Not me Blueturk. Spent last season in Division 2 and I could be reacquainting myself with this division next season <laugh>

    I would agree with Bluesheep and maybe BluefromBridgend?

    It's going to be tough for Barnsley to survive in the Championship but you can bet your bottom dollar that they'll give it a go. As sheepy says, they've also had some great results lately. My gut feeling is that they will want it more than us and will turn us over.

    Barnsley 3 - Cardiff City 1 (Adomah)

    Thank you Mr Sheep

    Beginning to know how Dave Jones used to feel as the season drew to a close.... looking like a dead certainly for promotion and then start to slide in the last couple of months :emoticon-0107-sweat

    Really need some points again now after a ropey couple of predictions....

    Got to keep the faith I reckon....

    I'll go for Tykes 1-2 City

    Feel like captain Mozza will get on the scoresheet this week...

    Getting a bit of a twitchy sphincter..... talking of which, hope Masky isn't still trying to catch that bar of soap in the prison shower block!!

    Coming sooner than you BT. You say the silliest things when you're pissed on a train.
