I'm taking a punt on Rotherham getting 1 more point and Wednesday beating Derby to stay up

I hope Rotherham do it. I think winning tomorrow is key for them though, even though they don't necessarily need to.

I just think Rotherham winning tomorrow puts so much pressure on, on Derby especially, as they will overtake them with a victory.

Will set up a really exciting last day.

A Rotherham win tomorrow effectively relegates Wednesday

Yes I reckon Sheffield Wednesday will pull it out of the bag
I have a sneaky feeling that Rooney's bacon will be saved and Derby will win the final game.

Even a win might not be enough for them though.

If Rotherham lose tomorrow, then the problem a nervous derby will have is Wednesday literally have to go at them to get ahead in the match

I take back what I said then.

For the most exciting finish, a draw tomorrow would be the best result.
Could always end up with forest playoff situation where Rotherham win tomorrow and Rotherham get beat 4 /5 nil at Cardiff..

It's a pretty exciting finish no matter what

If Rotherham win one of their two games and lose the other, the only result that would send them down would be a Derby, Wednesday draw unless the game they lose they concede heavily. I could see them winning one of their games against Luton or Cardiff.

I voted for Wednesday to stay up, would love Derby to go down. I think Rotherham will get at least a draw at Luton tomorrow.

Still think Derby will stay up, although I'd love Wednesday to turn them over. Problem for Rotherham is, if they win at Luton, they will effectively relegate Wednesday (due to goal difference), so Derby would then be likely to beat Wednesday. This means that Rotherham would then have to beat Cardiff too. Really strange permutations. Do hope Rotherham win tomorrow, but would prefer a shoot out on the last day. with all 3 in with a shout.

Looking at it, Sheff Wednesday pretty much need Rotherham to not pick up another win. One win and they are more than likely gone, unless Rotherham ship a few and they then bag a few goals themselves.

Just realised this isn’t correct. Derby win or draw would still send them down.

Apparently Wednesday players not been paid their full wages again, thats surely going to affect their motivation if true?

I think Derby will squeeze home, but what I do know is it's fucking great being an interested observer rather than a participant.
True story my old man had cut down to 5 fags from about 30/40 a day and vaped the rest of the day for about a year .

The week we played Rotherham he was back upto 40 a day .

He's now back on the vape 🤣

I was shouting 'you can't do this to a fat guy' when Godden missed his open goal-interpret as you will

Hoping for Rotherham to not win tomorrow, it’d set it up nicely. I’ll be watching City on iFollow and Derby v SW on Sky.

Said all along that I think Wednesday will escape and I still fancy it.

I genuinely asked the kids to kiss the telly for good luck...what the fuck is wrong with us 🤣
I used to get my little brother to say “come on city you can win” before going to games and I get my son to say it now. And to be fair to him, since he’s been able to say it we’ve been promoted twice and won a cup.

I'd say that Rotherham week was the most stressed id been supporting city since god knows when
Ha, I’d sort of taught myself to not get so wound up about it anymore. It all came flooding back by the Tuesday before Rotherham.

It's tricky for Rotherham, they will need Wednesday to have something to play for Saturday, but if they win tomorrow it's relegation for Wednesday and almost certainly 3 points for Derby Saturday, stick or bust.
I feel this post needs some Monday's, Tuesday's, Thursday's and Friday's for balance.
