    Do you think we’re better than Luton last season?

    To put it into context, they got 94 points - with 20 games remaining we’d need to win 17 of them to get the same amount

    Bit up his own arse Benno, has always come across that way to me. What did he say exactly? Something like ‘you’re shit, I tell ya’? Rude whatever it was.

    Stupid question imo. They started slowly last year. They kicked on 2nd half of season which most automatic promoted teams do.

    Let us play our 2nd half.

    Btw we have outplayed them in the four encounters we have had last 2 seasons.

    Okay in the second half we need to win 17 out of our next 20 games to match their point total - do you think that’s possible?

    No chance of anyone getting 94 points. Firstly we play 44 and not 46 games.

    So winners will get 86/90 points.(May not be us)

    What? We have 60 points left to play for - 20 games. We can finish on 101 points

    We had a bad day at the office today. Played nowhere near our best. And still got a point.

    And still should have won. We still created enough clear cut chances to win.

    I think their keeper was motm. 3/4 decent saves. Marosi didn’t make a save.

    It's extremely unlikely we will win 17 from the last 20

    If the form tables of the last 8 to 10 games are anything to go by... 8 games we are top 10 games we are 3rd... We won't be far away... Hopefully just turn some draws into wins and push on...

    Yes it sounds like he says to Hyam he’s shit and he looks bemused. I know he likes a drink but I’ve felt he’s dining on his 1987 status a bit much, he should never be on the radio

    Table is taking shape.

    Top 7 as we look at table now (swap Wycombe for Posh or Donny) is IMO the top 7 at end of season. It’s all to play for.

    Don’t see Fleetwood/Shrewsbury/Bristol Rovers/Wycombe/Burton in top 7.

    Good game of football again - thought it would be a tough one and, as others have said, we still had chances to win it. MK are playing Sunderland at home next week. That will be interesting. Nice win on Tuesday, then a toughie at Doncaster. Hope he starts Allen and O'Hare on Tuesday.

    We know we are doing something right when a draw gets as much reaction as a defeat used to

    I said the same. MK Dons are in better form than the table would have you think as well.

    It’s not negative to say we’re not better than a team who to match their point tally we’d have to win 17 out of our final 20 games

    You’ve also said we play better football than Leeds and Brentford

    At times we have, i didn't say we would beat them because we wouldn't with the quality they have but our passing is we'll above our level.

    Where have you plucked this from? There is no way their budget is third to only Sunderland and Ipswich

    I think the majority of their starting 11 today was from their academy or signed on frees?

    How do loan players count? Walsh and O’Hare are probably worth a few million each

    It's bollocks. Probably found some figures on tranfermarkt.

    You can inflate a value of the squad on paper by simply giving someone a contract extension and a pay rise.

    FWIW I think were having a great season, however I also think this is the weakest set of teams in the league since our relegation.

    Well that was a depressing 250 mile round trip. Same as last year can't beat teams in the bottom 6.

    I know McFadz is a leader but how many points is he costing us with his mistakes?

    totally disrespectful and out of order. I loved Bennet as a player but hes just gone right down in my book for that. He drinks in our local most Saturdays when there is a game on. Likes a few drinks and bets but what a wanker for doing that
