Actually the new Bolton is go one up, miss 27 chances then defend for last 25 minutes potentially with 10 men and pretty certain with a non goal keeper in nets after Gilks injures himself knee sliding

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

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.

I can see a point of view why FV went down that route, leave the coaching to IE and Toby to recruitment. But if You’re not a football man with a thorough knowledge of players in this league it’s a risk. 
 

FV are very good at responding to things not working, IE has recruited superbly. We live and we learn. 

This.

Looking at the goal difference of some of those above us, wins are needed to close the points difference, which in turn will close the goal difference deficit.

Just keep winning.

Get some sun on our pitch for Saturday, another mm or two of grass won't do any harm instead of the patchy areas. Even our turf has suffered somewhat this time.

Top 10 teams separated by a single point of the team above them

And how different it would have been if the referees had been fair. Extra 2 points against Morecambe and Cambridge and at least a point against Trashmere

When we were 2-0 down a week ago 7th seemed impossible but 9 points in a week we could make the automatic but I would be happy just to get a stab at the play offs

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 10 positions and 10 points above them and they're 1 point above 4th bottom.  Crazy division.

Good spot that.  Freakish, wont happen again surely.  And as mentioned earlier Mansfield are 10 places and 10 pts below us so the average of 1 point per place continues down to 19th place.

You could say we picked up 4 extra points at Mansfield and Southend with late winners. 

I think if we had picked an extra 6 points up earlier in the season, which we should have done, Crawley at home, FGR at home, Oldham in the last minute etc... we would be favourites to go up.

As an aside, how come, in Trashmere’s last 6 games, five were at home?

23/1 Bolton (H)

26/1 Harrogate (H)

30/1 Morecambe (A)

6/2 Port Vale (H)

9/2 Stevenage (H) rearranged from earlier postponement

13/2 Grimsby (A) postponed

20/2 Oldham (H).

All things considered re referees and late points we are definitely on the right side over the season.

They went from being described as 'unbeaten in 8' before our game to having 'the second worst home record in the division ' next match v Cambridge.  Then lost again , another "fluke' Nigel? Now hes got more to worry about. 

This division changes by the week plenty more points yet. Nothing guaranteed yet

In my 47 years on this planet and 40 years watching us, there can’t ever have been a more crazy, ridiculous season (and I’m not even including the Covid nonsense). This division is just so unpredictable.

I know the fact that we aren’t out there physically experiencing it is heartbreaking, but the fact that we  (well some of us) are watching every game and living and breathing every moment and placing the games at the centre of our being and entertainment (Is this sad??!!) means for me and my boys so much. Yesterday we were analysing the league table and firing up Southend’s game on IPTV 😂. We keep working out the myriad of permutations from the next series of games. My boys have gone from having the game on in the background messing about on their phones, to away tops on, phones away (in case of any rogue notifications) and shouting and cheering at recent performances. We even got hotel prices up for the weekend of 29th May. It’s fair to say we are loving BWFC at the moment! 

If we continue to show this form and positive consistency then I’m convinced we are going up.

I’ve reviewed my prediction given our current form and the players at our disposal and I think we could very well go up automatically don’t think we can win it but hopefully sneak into 3rd place. 

Crawley could be the 2021 Wrexham. Who scores the goal this time though?

Much better than a play off place.  I love a trip to that there London but would rather have a relaxed version rather than a lottery of a football match to make it a shit or a great weekend.

I would hate to be in playoffs and have to play Bradford or Tranmere  

Couple of points behind but like us bradford are finding some form, I’ve go no doubt we have better players but I wouldn’t fancy tranmere either maybe over 2 legs but not the final

I bet Tranmere wouldn't fancy playing us either.  If the boot was on the other foot and we'd done the double but massively rode our luck in the 2nd game, I'd be wanting to avoid them in the play offs.  (and Crawford can't play against us).

I'd take whoever has got the least bad pitch in the semis, so definitely not Newport.  I'd fancy us if we got to Wembley against anyone in this crap league, refereeing decisions notwithstanding.

It’s a shit 52 weekends though if you lose Micky because you have to start all over again again. Sod Wembley, it has to be automatic for me and it’s well within our grasp.
