16. Oxford United Played 35 - Points 42
17. Blackpool Played 35 - Points 42
18. Wimbledon Played 36 - Points 41
19. Oldham Played 35 - Points 40
20. Northampton Played 36 - Points 39

21. Fleetwood Played 35 - Points 38
22. Rochdale Played 32 - Points 32
23. MK Dons Played 35 - Points 32
24. Bury Played 35 - Points 30

Tuesday 13th March

Blackpool v Charlton
Bury v Peterborough
MK Dons v Rotherham
Rochdale v Southend

Saturday 17th March

Blackpool v Southend
Charlton v Fleetwood
MK Dons v Bury
Northampton v Rotherham
Oldham v Portsmouth
Oxford v Peterborough
Rochdale v Wimbledon

Can't see Fleetwood or Oxford getting anything this weekend, optimistically think we'll get a point against Rotherham because I think playing a decent team may help us. Big game at Spotland - if Dale grab a win/draw against Southend tomorrow they'll really be starting to get into gear.

Rochdale have put the cat among the pidgeons with some crackin results recently, Fleetwood have played well in their last 2 home games, missed too many chances and got the measly return of 2 points. We cant buy a win at the moment and I keep saying surely we are gonna get 3 points somewhere. Charlton on Saturday away, good place to start and then onto Rochdale the following week. My optimism is taking a hit....

Minimum 4 points from the next two. Hopefully Saturday hasn’t deflated us too much. I do think Peterborough under Evans will be too much for us, unless our mud bath can level the playing field.

If we want any chance of survival, 4 points from the next two is a must. Ideally 6 obviously, but so long as the single point comes tonight instead of against Bury (who we need to be beating) then it'll hopefully look better.

We are guaranteed to lose as we still haven't appointed a manager and it has affected the players.

Apparently it might happen next week and according to Tiger, our new owner, we will go 'WOW'. I expect Pep Guardiola to be announced but it'll end being Faz appointed to the end of the season. :dry:

Patrick Kluivert with his son Justin as a player?
I'd take signing Justin Kluivert but Patrick Kluivert is not somebody I'd like. I grew into the idea of Craig Bellamy but he at least had an idea about how lower league football works which Kluivert won't.

If it is Kluivert he'll get my support but I don't think many will go "wow".

We are gone, only Clark to blame. Useless manager, signed to many money grabbing players who were no better than we had. Hope he never gets another job.

We are done.

No intent, no fight, no desire, no tactics, no leaders, no left back, no hope.

I hope you are right but I doubt it. This relegation battle has lots of twist and turns to go yet..

Still quietly confident we can avoid the drop. Next 3 games: Rochdale, Northampton, Wimbledon, desperately hoping for 9 points, sorry that this would drop these teams deeper in the dodo (actually only the dale as they are neigbours) but it's a cod eat dog world out there.

Last two performances have made me uneasy, and with no game on Saturday and then a trip to Wigan the week after, we could be back in the bottom four sooner rather than later. We need a fully fit Eoin Doyle asap.

Don't hold much hope for our Tuesday game against the Shrews, especially at home, but our game on Saturday is massive...hope the weather clears off.

Could Bradford be making a shock appearance in here? I know they’re already on 50 points but what’s gone so badly wrong lately?

I highly doubt it. They surely can't go the rest of the season without picking up the 3 points they'd probably need to stay safe? 18th in the table and below are my picks for who it will be down too.

No problems weather wise, had less than 1/4 inch of snow here over the last few weeks. Infact had to take a little-un, who is 10, over to the M66 Bury the other week for his first chance to play in 'real snow'.
It's the salt air that does it.
