But what if we win all those games Esoterica? What then?
its still on but only if we keep it alive week by week
accrington did us over last year,lets overcome that challenge first
I do fancy us to finish strongly given the type of players and our playing style suits the pitches now we’re heading into spring.
Not sure we’re consistently good enough to claim a play off spot tho.

We have 6 very winnable (on paper - I know we don't always work like that) home games. Win them and pick up 2 wins away, or 1 win and a few draws, and we've done it.
The next 3 are crucial to us having any chance, a win at Stanley would really set us up nicely ahead of 2 home games. Needing 7 wins from 11, with 6 winnable home games.
Currently we have 47 points. Historically you need around 75 for the play-offs. That means 28 from 12 games. 9 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats or 8 wins, 4 draws and no defeats.
Personally I can't see it, particularly with our inconsistent form, a young squad and some tough games to play especially away from home.
What do we need for confirmed safety?
50 points is the usual benchmark. We'll be fine on that score, so may as well go gung-ho and have a stab at getting close.
Correct, we should go mental and play 2 up front.
Historicaly yes its between 72 and 75 points. But may be lower this year, as theres one hell of a battle at tge bottom. 50 points usually is enough to avaoid relegation may not be this year.4th from bottom may get relegated on 54 points, who knows.
72 points should do it.
The fact that we still play Doncaster and Peterborough is a good thing for our playoff hopes. Peterborough and Portsmouth have been bad recently so I like our chances there.
Doncaster are currently on pace for 72 points
There’s always next season ....................
................................or is there?
Noit to do with pitches. Robins will play like this all season long next year
Tiki taka my friend. Enjoy!!!!
Its everything to do with pitches in L1 with factors depending on weather conditions and playing surface at times as we’ve very well seen at the Ricoh on a bobbly worn pitch not the lush elite pitches in big stadiums we see weekly on tv
For the record I’m all for it as long as it’s effective and you can see what’s trying to be achieved, and I’ve seen what he’s been trying to implement the last few months and it’s taken it’s time with a few players taking a hit in confidence and flack because of the pitch occasionally and fans getting jumpy and not liking us retaining possession recycling the ball looking for a opening not going forwards at every pass echoed with venomous forwards shouts.
Personally I like this plan A, it can be entertaining. I’d also like a plan B for when A isn’t quite working on them days tho be that a traditional method then so be it.
You play the conditions as well as the opponents.
In a ideal world you recruit for both, however this is league one...

It would be classic City....no top 6 finish for 40 years....three wembley appearances, 3 years on the spin with two top six finishes.
Fixed it for you
And then have it all be for nothing because the club gets liquidated
Better odds of me labeling my shit, flushing it and ever seeing it again m8
You know that your Canadian mate has just tried that, right?!
Dare to dream!

promotion to championship and playing like barca
Really can't stand the morons who shout FORWARDS at every opportunity. Heard it a few times at Luton on Saturday. Can clearly see what MR is trying to implement and I'm really enjoying watching the style and a young group that is starting to get to grips with it.
There's the lad in the wheelchair who loves that shout. I still remember when we played West Ham in the Checkatrade and he shouted "Score a goal" when we got a corner and to be fair we did straight away!
Well bloody get him to shout that every time then!
Doncaster's fixture list is as tough as ours!
One also near me who used a motorised scooter thing who shouts “try going forwards”
Winds me right up! Whilst we keep switching the play and pulling them around we can’t concede and also may open the opponents up. We do have some thick fans when it comes to how we play
I usually end up stuck in front of him at any of the checkatrade games. It does wear thin after a while I can assure you.
and the ones who shout "Shoooooot" as soon as we get over the half way line!!
We all know we need to have a pop more often when we get in & around the box, but screaming that at a 20 year old lad as he is trying to work his way through a tough league one defence isnt helping the team or the player... totally moronic
With our luck we’ll go into that last game 3 points behind them lead 15-0 at half time and only need to score 6 in the second half to overtake them
We’d then go on to score the 6 , take a 21-0 lead into extra time and then concede at the death.
Real Madrid too
What would you label it with?
