Aw come on man... clearly taking the piss.
Until maybe two weeks ago our league position still looked good on paper, in that if you didn't take form into account you'd think we had a solid chance of making the playoffs, but now it doesn't even look like that. Win our games in hand and we'd still be outside the playoffs. We only have one game in hand on anyone that matters, three on Cambridge and Stevenage which are both irrelevant.
The collapse has been astounding. 2nd of February we were 2nd in the league with four games in hand and only three points behind leaders Cambridge and three games in hand on a host of teams behind us. We'd been top before our season was interrupted. We had the best defence and the second best goal difference in the league and had more wins than anyone else (in fewer games). We were top of the form table with six wins from our last eight.
Since then we have played 13 games, won once, drawn three and lost nine, and dropped to 14th in the table, only have one game in hand on most teams but are nine points from the playoffs. Are bottom of the form table, only the bottom three have lost more games than us, have the leakiest defece in that period and now a goal difference of a measly +3
Well that's just such a defeatist attitude to have my friend.
If we can end up looking the much better side against the team who are now top, then there is every chance of us turning it around against even more inferior opposition in the coming games.
I mean even one of their own fans on here thought Cambridge were shit and we should have won yesterday.
