    Oh dear we got hammered 3-1 and now face back to back relegations. :( Our next game is away to Birmingham on Weds tea time. 9 games left in which to save our skin. :nailbiting:

    Fingers crossed @Johnboy412 they will stay up

    Good win for Leeds on Saturday, sitting pretty on the top of the championship. Was appalled at the Mitrovic challenge on Ben White which went unnoticed....just hop the the FA will take a look and issue a retrospective ban

    Northampton Town dominated 10-man Exeter City to win the League Two play-off final and gain promotion to League One at an empty Wembley.


    Well done Northampton.

    Thanks Mate. We sure need to turn it around and pull off the great escape like we did in the Prem 2 years ago.

    I just do not understand the EFLs sense in the 12 point deduction for a club in financial difficulty. Surely the 12 point deduction and the chance of going down a division is going to put more financial stress on the club. To me that does not make any sense at all

    It’s to stop clubs overspending to gain a competitive advantage over teams who live within their means. It is harsh, but poor owners were exploiting the situation and also putting clubs at long term risk. In the Wigan scenario, I do feel for them as it seems it is a well run club which shouldn’t have any issues but new owners have pulled funding leading to administration..... it’s not right and they should be ashamed!!!

    And we drew 0-0 at home to Preston. Leaves us 2 points above the relegation zone. Next stop Reading on Tuesday night. Lets see how we go on there.

    Yeah you'd have thought so. It makes no sense at all. If they finish in the relegation zone then they will get deducted 12 points next season. If they finish outside the relegation zone then A 12 point deduction at the end of this season would leave them in the relegation zone surely. Its a cruel blow to them. Either way they could be going down.

    Another draw for us. Puts us 3 points above the relegation zone. I suppose a draw is better than loosing and as long as the teams below us don't pick up more than 1 point then we will be home and dry. Home to Luton on Friday night. Final 4 games = Luton, Sheff Weds, West Brom and Millwall. The nasty one will be Sheff Weds and possibly Millwall. Its going all the way to the wire I reckon.

    Home to bottom place Luton kick off at 6pm We need 3 points off that which would put us 5 clear of Hull who take on Millwall tomorrow so with any luck Millwall will help us out.
