    i really hope your wrong too RRC, but sadly i think you are going to be correct. 😢
    what is the rule on not playing a game, due to the fact that you cant field strong enough team? if you play a weak team you get fined, then if you call the game off due to having a weak team you also get fined?? Dunno

    Other than possibly Blackpool away, I believe they are all winnable (vast majority of home games have to be winnable). However, I believe D, L, W, D....5 points is realistic.

    H Brum 3
    A Watford 3
    A Blackpool 1
    H Doncaster 3
    H Burnley 1

    11pts, unbeaten, and just 1 point behind leaders Ipswich.

    Don't know what all this fuss has been about this week...... 'twas only the tin pot Evaporated Milk Cup Trophy Shield anyway! :roll:

    I think you'll be wrong there. Can't see us getting a point off Donny.

    Well I thought with all the despondency on the board it was best to leave Brum out as a lot of folks may have expected a defeat.


    BTW watch out for a guy in an oversized Sheepskin coat, goes by the name of NER but we know him as Eddie Waring.

    I reckon we'll lose today, lose by the seaside, draw with Donny and beat Burnley. Add on the trois points we got against the Bluenoses and that would be 7 from 5. Keep that up all season and we'll be on 64.4 points.....

    6 points, win one of the home games and snatch a draw in one would be a great 10 point return from the month. COYR

    MM on his way back asking how we won that match....Roger Davies calling them resolute ..another word for ordinary....good 6pts and on the way to safety which is number one priority for me given our set up.

    I'll go for 13pts just the away draw at Blackpool to spoil things. plus manager of the Month for Nige in August and Steve Davis to be leading Npower Championship scorer with 5 goals, there that should lift the gloom(and keep Chas sweating)
