    1-0 down.

    We are now relegated. Programme Barrow and Harrogate into your satnavs.

    Dont know who is doing the commentary but he has just said he can't see Rovers getting 2 goals, I cant see them getting 1

    Westbrooke's delivery from free kicks and corners is appalling

    Upson off their bloke gets yellow this ref is so biased it's unbelievable

    Ha ha!

    Down to 10 men!

    What a shambles our football club has become.

    Barton and his gang, the players, Wael, Widdrington, Starnes etc can all go and **** themselves. I won’t be following this crock of **** in League Two.

    None of them deserve the support they get from Gasheads.

    An absolute ****ing disgrace from top to bottom. **** right off.

    I will stand by them. Wife is going to by my season ticket for my birthday again, but they need to sort out some of these players. Harries and Leahy mess up for their goal Westbrookes delivery from free kicks is a disgrace. Kilgour seems to be the only defender that is interested in defending.

    Kilgour is the only defender unless they can get Mark Little and Tom Davies fit that are worth keeping

    I hope we no longer hear Westbrooke being referred to as a “marquee signing”.

    He’s ****ing ****e. Tent signing more like.

    Ref and linesman miss a good penalty shout

    Rochdale winning against Accies

    Oztumer on Westbrooke off

    With the number of injuries they are having I reckon about 10 minutes of extra time

    I think next season's team should be built around getting the best out of Ayunga. Martinez has done well, and there are a few others worth hanging onto. And keep things simple, like Clark and Coghlan did.

    Keep going to the end - it looks bad now but 2 wins in the next 2 games and it's very different

    Those on here who know my posts, will know I'm not a "wummer" - I feel genuinely sorry for you guys - the football club has been mis-managed for years

    Thank you for your kind words Sir - you are quite right about constant mis-management and poor decision making, sadly these are the ingredients for failure as we are only too aware. Personally, I don't think we have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the next 2 games, and to be honest, I'd rather we didn't! We are a ****e team punching above our ability level, in a league that we don't deserve to be part of, and our only real chance of achieving anything worthwhile from this shambles, is to be relegated,, clear out all the dead wood that's infested the club (virtually all the playing staff and a large chunk of the non playing staff), and start building from scratch again. If we were to somehow miraculously survive this season, then I fear next season would be a carbon copy of this one. Lessons would not be learned and the changes that are required would not happen - at least relegation might force some changes to be made.

    Exactly - spot on!! Unbelievable the amount of crap decisions and poor appointments that the club have made since then. All come back to bite us on the arse now though!

    Poor recruitment, incompetent manager appointments, no continuity and desire to fight for the shirt, a stupid attempt at imposing a “playing identity” on the club without the investment to achieve it, nothing on the stadium front whatsoever despite platitudes - the whole club is a shambles.

    With Swindon getting thumped last night at least we will have a local derby Swindon Bottom 4 to play 7 points behind Wigan who are in 20th position and we are bottom but 1 with 4 games to play and 6 points behind Wigan.

    Rochdale 39 points from 41 games and Northampton 40 points from 42 games with Wigan on 44 points from 42 games and AFC on 45 points from 41 games with Shrewsbury on 50 points thats the bottom 7. We are relegated see you in league 2

    Only one team has scored less goals than Rovers 40 in league 1 this season and that is Northampton 35 and they are in 21st place the second nearest team in goals scored is Ipswich 41 and they are in 9th place. Makes you realise how well we could have done if we had a defence that knew how to defend

    Only Swindon have lost more games than the rovers. Makes you realise why they're the bottom 2 teams.

    Our biggest issue was selling JCH and starting the season with only 3 strikers...

    Ayunga - who had never played a football league game
    Daly - who had never scored a football league goal
    Hanlan - who had only scored 15 football league goals (2 for Colchester and 13 for Gillingham)

    They have all suffered injuries too throughout the season.

    We all said during pre-season this was going to be an issue. Nothing changed. Garner thought this would be enough. Tisdale came in and recognised this issue. But did he solve this in the January window? No. He didn't and then moaned about it afterwards and got sacked. Then Barton came in. He too recognised this issue. He has moaned about it several times. Yet we still have just the 3 strikers. Are you telling me that there is not 1 single experienced striker without a club who could give us 30 minutes each game to get us a few extra points??

    If we cant defend and cant score, there will always be one outcome.

    If we lose tonight and both Wimbledon and Wigan win then we are 9 points from safety with 9 points available, meaning we would need to win our last 3 games and Wigan would have to lose their 3 remaining games and Rochdale and Northampton too.

    It is a must win game tonight. And not just a must win but we need goals goals goals because our goal difference is a right mess compared to teams above us.

    Wimbledon vs Oxford
    Shrewsbury vs Wigan
    Rochdale vs Blackpool
    Northampton vs Ipswich

    Team sheet for tonight... No Oztumer, No Westbrooke and No Daly. Oztumer and Westbrooke are our creative players. Not been good enough but they are our creative players. End of. Daly runs and runs and runs. How he doesn't start games is a mystery.

    Early kick off and Swindon is winning 1-0 vs Portsmouth meaning we are BOTTOM.
