Newport and Exeter's form giving Orient and Carlisle a sniff (albeit initially having games in hand).
I'm assuming Bradford and Salford will fall just short?
Our commentators on Saturday made the point that it's only really Newport that ourselves and the other teams hoping to get into the playoffs are able to target. Looking at the table I'm not sure I'd quite say Morecambe and FGR are home and dry though. FGR are on poor form and Morecambe's goal difference is well within reach of any of the mentioned teams. It's a bit of a crazy season and given how quickly we went from title favourites to bottom half anyone could yet collapse. I'm sure Orient are more than just outsiders given their form compared to that of the two teams above them. Ourselves and Bradford are pinning our hopes on knowing we have the players to go on a good run. Salford look done unless they can change something, Stevenage have probably too few games left for their surge up the table to end in playoffs but this year has just been strange enough for that to happen.Salford are absolute piss, so (hopefully) can’t see them going on a real run. Bradford have every bit as much of a chance as Orient or Carlisle I.e. outsiders. Exeter are the second best team I’ve seen this season so I’m still backing them for a spot in the top 7. Wondering if Forest Green might nosedive and miss out, which would be very sad.
here we go
Barrow probably won't have anything to play for by the last day of the season (they'll be safe by then I'm sure)... The way things are going Southend and Grimsby might already be gone by the time you play them.I dont know how significant this is but all of our remaining games are against teams with something to play for. Bolton, Newport and FGR; Southend, Grimsby and Barrow (twice).
Of course, knowing us this means nothing, but worth a thought.
We are playing Southend next weekend so they will certainly still be fighting for it with the Tango bounce still a factorBarrow probably won't have anything to play for by the last day of the season (they'll be safe by then I'm sure)... The way things are going Southend and Grimsby might already be gone by the time you play them.
I think you'll find the actual quote was that it would be 'easier' getting promoted in League 2 than from National League.It’s taking that long for FGR to get those easy promotions that Dale Vince spoke about in 2017 that he is rumoured to be looking at replacing the stars on FGR shirts with Supernova’s.
Hello Arsene Wenger.I cannot understand how anyone could predict that we’ll drop out of the top 7, we had over 60% possession again today, keep doing that and we’ll have a combined 360% possession over our remaining 6 games.
Yes we aren’t scoring and keep conceding soft goals, but having that much of the ball surely means we’ll win again at some point.
