I'm not, hate the game with a passion as it brings out the retards from both sides. I hope they go up.

To be fair, their problems were there before they appointed him. But yeah, not sure why he keeps getting jobs.

He's a disgrace to the profession. A horrible little man too who was a part in the attempted ruination of my football club in 2012.

As long as we keep our loan players (Ajose, Ikpeazu, Ness and Tate) and our keeper fit id back us to stay up.

Can't see Crawley or Yeovil getting out of it, but after that its pretty much anyone.

Crawley don't seem to have the finance or the players, but stranger things have happened. Walsall are very much in this battle at the moment so I shouldn't comment too much.

Amazing that the gap between 4th and 5th is the same as the gap between 5th and the bottom four.

I'm not quite ready to write us off just yet. Although our away record is dreadful, our record at home is one of the best in the bottom 10.

Looking at our remaining fixtures, the rest of the season is almost split into two halves: the harder games first, and then the 'easier' games. Picking up points over the next 6 weeks or so is going to be very hard, but after the Bristol City game, the fixtures get a little easier, as our final 11 games are all against sides who are currently below 9th in the table.

It's so close at the bottom this year, you might even need more than 50 points to survive.

What was the exact moment Pressley went from hero to zero?

We sold Leon Clarke to Wolves, he then decided to change up our tactics rather than attempt to get in a decent replacement which led to us going through a major decline in 2014 where we were only saved by Callum Wilson/Franck Moussa (Playing Conor Thomas/Anton Robinson RM wasn't going to work.). At the start of this season, he signed players for 4-4-2, then changed his tactics to 3-5-2 following the world cup so we didn't have the players to accommodate the formation. Though we became a little bit more solid at the back, our strikers received zero service which led to us losing/drawing a lot of games. It took Pressley far too long to figure out the flaws with the system which led to us throwing away a 2 goal lead at home to crawley, and us losing 2-1 to Crewe and 4-1 to Oldham. Since then he has changed between 4-4-2/4-3-3/4-2-3-1 to try and solve the issues but often, our teams lack a solid structure which allow opposition's midfields to just control the play. He has shown himself on many occasions to be tactically inept and has performing well below how we should be with the squad we have.

We will go down with a wage budget of £4million pounds - The highest ever at this level.

At least our dopey, retard of an owner watched how shite we are today.
Not as high as ours was when we went down, ours was 4.5 million wage budget whilst spending a million in transfer fees

2 massive wins in the last 2 games to pull us a little clear hoping we can put a run together to stop us looking over our shoulders

Crawley are surely doomed, they've signed Dean Morgan ffs! But anyone from Rochdale and below could go down.

Think it'll come down to away form, sides like us, Scunthorpe and Gillingham are winning games at home which are pulling us away and it'll be the sides who get results on the road who will survive.

If we win 8 more games I'm sure we'll stay up but anything can happen.

Think it'll be Crawley, Yeovil, Orient and someone to plummet from the mid-table pack. Fair play to Gillingham for winning back to back home games though because two weeks ago they were the worst side I've seen all season on a par with the Vale when they played us at Gresty Road.

We haven't lost at home since mid October and that was only 1-0 to Sheff Utd, before that it was Notts County in September when we were truely shocking.

I'm surprised at Gills upturn in form as they were very poor at Gresty Rd a few weeks back. That being said they have only scraped by two of the most out of form teams in the league at home.

Our away form is better than our home form.

Robins will keep Scunthorpe up. It'll be us, Crawley, Yeovil and Orient that go down.

The 4 worst sides I've seen have been Coventry, Crewe, Yeovil and Port Vale. Vale won't go, so swap them for Crawley and that could well be the bottom 4. Colchester won't be far off.

Wouldn't it be great if this league was finally rid of the irrelevant Colchester United?

Without a doubt the Crewe team you saw at priestfield would finish bottom of this league with a record low amount of points. Luckily we are a far cry from that now. I'm certain we will make it difficult for ourselves as that's the Crewe way, but I'm confident there is 4 sides not as good as this Crewe team. Despite having the worst defensive record due to about as bad a start as you could have, over the last 2-3 months its probably one of the best.

I hope we finish bottom if we go down, because then it will be an added incentive to call our retarded owner an even bigger c***.

We have a wage budget of around £4million FFS, any other season I'd have taken relegation, but this stupid retarded twat is throwing money at us and at old players who have nothing left to prove.

Seriously, I hope we finish bottom, it would make Francesco Becchetti take a long hard look at himself in the mirror, having money means nothing.

Anyone else who joins us, at least you will go down with sensible budgets, we're going down with the biggest wage bill in League One history, certainly our clubs history.

Me and my mate estimated our current wage budget this season - And believe me we dumbed it down as well and we came to around £4million.

I don't care anyway, have you seen how Southern based League Two could be next season?! Mixed in with Exeter, Plymouth, Carlisle, Morecambe and Accrington?!

I'm warming to it actually!! :woot::woo:

This season is almost a parallel to last season for us. Start poorly, get hidings every week in Autumn. Get some loanees in which tighten up the back line and improve the quality. Pick up results around December and January then BANG, a South Yorkshire club steals one of our strikers on loan. Can't wait for the myriad of narrow 1-0 defeats to relegation rivals which will inevitably occur as a result of this now. Desperately need a new striker but let's give LDV a chance first.

There's no doubt LDV is good enough as a player imo, just not sure Ajose and LDV are going to compliment each other. They're too similar and when Davis stuck LDV and Cooper up front at Notts it was absolutely pitiful.

We're gone, Liverani came out and basically said that the players we have aren'y playing for him. He has now cancelled all the players days off :fl:

I can see Yeovil and Crawley joining us, not sure on the last space though.

If Leyton Orient go down and we stay up it will suck, one of the best away days in this division easily.
