    Thought it deserved its own thread with it being nearly February and plenty of teams in the mix.

    15. Accrington --- Played 27 --- 35
    16. Walsall ------- Played 29 --- 35
    17. Plymouth ---- Played 30 --- 33
    18. Shrewsbury - Played 28 --- 31
    19. Gillingham --- Played 28 --- 31
    20. Rochdale ---- Played 30 --- 31


    21. Oxford ------- Played 28 --- 30
    22. Bristol ------- Played 28 --- 28
    23. Bradford ---- Played 29 --- 28
    24. Wimbledon - Played 29 --- 23


    Sky Bet's latest odds -

    Wimbledon 1/7
    Bradford 1/1
    Plymouth 11/10
    Bristol 11/8
    Gillingham 11/8
    Rochdale 11/8
    Oxford 3/1

    Who we all thinking then? Rochdale were the worst side we've played all season and I think they'll go, you'd think Wimbledon have had it.... that leaves two spots. If we don't bring in a good winger and goalscorer I think you can add us to that. Still a long way to go though​

    Think yourselves & Plymouth the biggest underachievers in the League this season albeit I think you'll survive.

    My bottom 4.

    Walsall
    Rochdale
    Bristol Rovers
    AFC Wimbledon

    See you March 9th , hopefully another goal fest.

    Still a lottery at this stage.

    Our 'run' lol of 3 games ended yersterday so with 3 or 4 teams with 2 games in hand it's a strong probability Argyle will be back in the bottom 4 on Tuesday night.

    The nosebleed was nice while it lasted.

    Very close....all you need to do is appoint Paul Heckingbottom as coach and you might still make the play offs.....

    I definitely think Wimbledon, Bristol Rovers and Rochdale. Last place quite open but can see it being Accrington.

    Bradford 4-3 Shrewsbury (City last min winner)
    Bristol 2-2 P'boro (Posh last min equaliser)
    Gillingham 0-0 Accrington
    Oxford 2-2 Barnsley (Ox blew two goal lead)

    On the whole a good night for us. Moves us up to 21st. Now just 4 points separating Walsall in 16th and Rochdale in 22nd.

    Very, very, very open. It’s bad news for Sunderland as we don’t have many games against teams who will be already safe by the time we play them. We struggle when teams sit back. Would back us to beat any team who takes on but not many will.

    Looks like we could well be relegated with a 20 goal a season striker... unbelievable. I think we will stay up just. This team has proven in the FA Cup what they’re capable of we just need to do it in the league.

    They have some very good L1 players in their squad, but I don't rate that horrible twat Robinson whatsoever and I hope he takes them down.

    I know, it's not good for the heart rate :laugh:

    Oxford seem to be in a bit of turmoil off the field with their Thai(i think)Owner not investing in the team/club.

    Until we get 50 points i won't discount us, last couple of times we've been in this situation we took off, the other the negative manager's draw tactics left us safe...yes.

    Wimbledon and Bristol Rovers will go, then who knows.

    I'm not keen on him either, and as soon as I saw Jamie Mackie in the line up I was concerned, the twat always puts a shift in against us. The mistake they made yesterday was not trusting themselves with a 2 goal lead they had gained by playing football. They started defending the lead and running the clock down when they really should have been trying to totally put the game beyond us. I think had they carried on playing they would most likely have won...instead of hanging on at the end for the draw. I think you should have enough to stay up as well to be honest, but you will have to fight for it obviously.​

    Defeats for Wimbledon, Walsall, ourselves, Gills, Rochdale and Accrington.
    Bristol, Shrews, Oxford & Plymouth all drew.

    Shame we couldn't capitalise on them results but at least we haven't fallen further away. We're 23rd but win yesterday we'd have been 17th. Very tight down there. Think Wimbledon (10 pts adrift) are certs.

    Huge game for us next weekend at home to Plymouth. If we lose that then it'll be the first time this season I've thought we're down.

    Incredibly close down there, a fight to the last day I suspect ....the top end too.

    Our club is a shambles at the moment.
    Situation won't chance though with ****ing Bonser.
    Feels like watching groundhog Day the last few months.

    Southend fully involved in this. Saving grace is that so many are involved and as everyone is taking points off everyone else doesn't look like an historically high total number of points will keep you up, might not even need 50. If Southend can't find 4 more wins from the remaining 15 games then we deserve to go down. We need to stay up with Ipswich coming down, not many local games for us currently.
    I think Wimbledon are gone, then literally couldn't tell you. Like Arkwright said you suspect it'll go down to the last day and possibly with 3 spaces still up for grabs.
