Still have every faith. Not even arsed we lost today. Had to lose somewhere and now is the right time to do it. I think Maddison needs a couple of starts.

Talk about a week being a long time in football.  With 10 minutes to go at Mansfield they were 2 pts above us with a game in hand, top of the form table and looking at play offs.  A week later we're 1

I still think no. But if I was one if the teams above us I would be getting a bit worried.

Average number of points for 3rd place in L2 over the past 5 seasons has been 80.2 (79, 68, 84, 85, 85)

We have 47 points right now, so to get to 80 we need another 33 points from 15 games. That's 11 wins and 4 losses. Or 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses.

It's a big ask so I think Play Offs is probably where we'll end up but it depends on how the other teams do. I don't think 10 wins is out of reach at all but needs a huge collective effort, hopefully we can do it, not sure my heart can take the playoffs.

A month ago I was thinking my heart couldn't take even the suggestion of a relegation battle going into the last dozen games.  I would have snatched hands off for mid table never mind a chance of play offs.  If we lose in the play offs, we start again on a level playing field in August, instead of giving everyone a 3 month start, it could be worse.

Next 3 games will be definitive

Oldham blow hot and cold. Bradford on a good run and Cambridge top of league.

4/5 points would be a good return 

All the sides around us and above us play relatively easy games in the next two (I know it’s a silly league and they could drop points) so we need at least one win from these two games. Let’s get 5 points from Oldham and Bradford 😊

Now we have the confidence, we should be able to beat these top teams.

MFM were the best team in the league by a country mile. Now Its time to show it on the pitch.

If we start to play well for the whole game, we should blow these teams away.

That said, I would still take 5 from the next 3.

BTW, why wait for next season?

Once the official “lockdown” is over & travel/overnight stays are allowed from 29 March,  we’re off again.

Risking a dig at Grimsby but you can see in at one specific area, and those pubs on the seafront will be open....

There seems to be some over cautious acceptance of dropping points in these upcoming games, but when we see them play we'll realise we should be winning.  Some thought Scunthorpe would be decent, they weren't.  If we only get 5 points from the next 3 games, that's exactly what the opposition will want, us to drop 4 points.  If we drop points in 1 game we should absolutely win the next, that's what other teams near the top would expect to do.  And there's no home game in this league when a point is acceptable, its only acceptable to the away team, we shouldn't be letting them go away with a draw if we want to catch them. 

Only a win at Oldham is acceptable with their home record, if we are going to drop 2 points let it be at Bradford.

Looked back at a few of games v the top sides. Crellin punched into our goal against Cambridge. Gilks palmed it down for the Cheltenham striker. Deservedly beat Salford on sky. Drew away at Carlisle and Exeter. 

All of these before we've strengthened in Jan too. Think we can beat any of them at the top now.

Agreed.

A lot of folk on here seem almost reluctant to praise us.

But they’re right on it if it’s looking like we’re dropping points.

Scored arguably our 2 best team goals of the season.  1st when it was 0-0, finished by Brockbank - one of our mystery disallowed goals this season.  The line up was one of our stronger one's for pre-Christmas, Tutte rare start and no sign of the "non league" players apart from last 20 minutes Gordon replaced Brockbank.
