This is becoming oddly familiar to when we went down last time. “Plenty of points in the bag, we’ll be fine.” Meanwhile on the pitch, match after match goes by with no goals score and the margin gets tighter and tighter. It’s eerily similar.

I was thinking the exact same. This has the same feeling as our relegation season to me. I seriously think we might get relegated. Hopefully we can nick a win somewhere and get a confidence boost.

We won't go down under DC.  It will all hinge on recruitment in the summer and how he sets us up from there.  I genuinely don't think anybody at the club is thinking of a promotion campaign next season.

We need players who buy into his ethos, simple as that.  We have too many players at the moment who are long in the tooth and have there own idea of how things should be.

This league is garbage the club has got to aiming for a playoff push even if eventually we don’t achieve it we’ve seen today what’s required to be top of the league so surely with a few good signings we can be in the top ten with half a dozen games remaining

I dont have to.  If you would like to point to where I have said I am unhappy with him, please do.  I have even stated that we should back him for 4-5 years come what may...

I think you are projecting your own fears onto me.

You're doing a great job of embarrassing yourself and making yourself look like the village idiot, but I'll gladly help you out too.

It’s looking a bit serious now . Defensively solid today. Guthrie should have scored , and when he didn’t , he just sauntered away . Robinson , who could be there till the next 100 year pandemic before he scores, and Cullen are awful. We have no goals in the team. Darrel Clarke , I don’t envy you . Once again , like Askey and Aspin before him, you’re trying to save us from relegation. Start with Swan on Tuesday , for at least he shows energy. 
The players got what they wanted by getting rid of Askey, which I believe was set in motion before that bad run of results. They downed tools , and have left us in the <ovf censored> once again. However , that’s gone now , but their inability to perform , which is on them at 3pm, is very evident. No passion, no pride in the shirt , in fact <ovf censored> all interest in getting the club up the table. You might be able to make a silk purse out of a sows’ ear before this lot of chancers score again. I’ve made remarks before about Ainsworth or Bogie watching that. I can only imagine what Albert Leake, Andy Jones, or even John Woodward would think of that pathetic forward line. It’s going to be a nail biting finish to the season, for all the wrong reasons.

Oh I understand now.  You and your cohorts have no concept of irony.  You cling to an ironic post and yet ignore the FACT that I am the only one on here saying we should stick with Clarke whatever...  

OK hun 😘 

No one is saying we should get rid of Clarke you weirdo! 😂😂😂

I find it hard to plausibly see us going down because the teams below us are so bad. 

It's sad that we have to think this TJH. I hope your'e right because I see no cutting edge and a lot of bluster at present. We are now sound defensively again, this will be tested at Salford and Cheltenham. We do not have a final third, only Rodney as a threat and a half-fit or not fit Tom Pope to look toward for goals.

 

It's ataggering how we have been miss-managed, perhaps 3 wins may do it, personally I think we will be near to the bottom 2 in 8/9 games time.

A mess, Clarke and Flitcroft are talking a good game, League 2 status requires much more than bravado and bullsh*t.

Salford - L

Cheltenham - D

Oldham - D

Bolton - L

Newport - W

Colchester - D

Crawley - D

Exeter - D

Harrogate - D

Carlisle - L

Morecambe - W

Barrow - D

Bradford - D

Grimsby - D

Mansfield - W

That’s 52 points, which means we’d be safe by the time we played Grimsby.

By that we won’t win any of the next 4 games but will still stay up.
