Didn't realise 2 of the sides below them have matches in  hand. Hopefully Wigan and the Wimbledon roar past them then Rochdale manage a win or 2. 

That really does look good doesn't it?

Look again...

3 teams below the fewers all have games in hand. Wimbledon having 2. They don’t win tonight they are in deeeeep shit

We're playing very slightly better as well. And not too bad a run-in. I think we've got half a chance of getting ourselves out of the shit again. Unfortunately - for the Dons - I think Northampton are going to do better than the rest of the following pack and are more likely to pull themselves out of it. Whether one or, fingers crossed, both of us - Dons and Cobblers - get out of the relegation zone, it's obviously bad news for Rovers.

Why?

I'm loving it!

They are a pox on Bristol, along with the Kill the Bill protesters, but our own form is pretty much diabolical too, losing at home 6 on the trot, Brum, Rotherham etc, IF we were in a postion to mock, fair enough, but we are not.

Hoping the Dons stay up. Rovers and Swindon to get relegated.

Can't imagine Wally is too happy playing his version of Football Manager at the moment.

Not when it is costing him hard cash.

Guess the reason why he never held a senior role in the family banking business is now starting to dawn on the fewers. He might have access to cash, but not the ability to earn or generate it.

He'll soon get bored as having a lower league football club relegated, that play in tented stadium isn't going to do anything for his FIFA ambitions.

I can't see any odds about Gash NOT getting relegated , I want a big saver on that, if anyone can find a book ?:fingerscrossed:

Me too. In 2011 I spoke to William Hill and asked them to give me odds for the Gas to stay up when they were in a similar position.

Managed to get 5/1 (admittedly I think Gas were actually bottom of the table and a point or two further adrift but still in touch of 5th from bottom). 
 

Best £100 I’ve ever lost 🤣

Ahh, then this thread isn’t for you.

Off you pop, good lad.

Our home form is diabolical, our away form clearly isn't diabolical under Pearson whereas the Few are just diabolical full stop. Those six teams at the bottom of League 1 would struggle to reach 10 points if you put them in the Championship and that's not an exaggeration (I accept we are talking different budgets entirely for most of those sides but the Fewers wage budget seems to at least be on a par with Wycombe and not hugely below Rotherham).

It's good, old fashioned rivalry and they aren't shy in dishing it out and when you add the complete delusion, lies and hypocrisy (a.k.a. #gaslogic) that gets spouted over there they deserve everything they get from us!!

Seems ok with it according to that pounder Barton.

Talking about ‘the great reset’ by all in his post match interview by all accounts 🤣

If you think that I’m not going to mercilessly rub their noses in it IF they get relegated just because we lost to Rotherham in a division they haven’t been in for 3 decades then you’re very much mistaken mate. 🤣

We can hope can't we? ;)

This is the latest rope that the Few are hanging onto now. Fair play to Barton, whether you love or loathe his personality, he's not as stupid as some people think and knows exactly what he's dealing with up there both in terms of Board and particularly the fans. He's got them on strings and persuaded many of them that if the drop happens (which they seem to have broadly accepted) there's no problem and this "big reset" is going to be the beginning of domestic football domination by Horfield FC. Making statements like "we will get this done" is all you have to do up there because their fanbase simply don't have the bollocks to look at things realistically and question whether what is being promised is actually deliverable. All you have to do is make the promise and if you get found out 12 months down the line so be it. Of course, if he gets sent down in the summer then they really do have a problem.

Haha. I think he will be sent down in more ways than one 😀

I think where Joey is going, lights-out is a predetermined process.

Slopping out will be a joy for him.

He's a bit of a pretty boy, he'll end up with an arse like a saucepan! 

Grippers 'special' friend! ;)

There should come a time when some should stop obsessing over them, to keep banging on about them shows they get under your skin. They are not our rivals, they used to be but not anymore, his sort of tribal post code thing seems to prevent us moving forward.

I admit though to find it entertaining in their demise, but the other part of me thinks there a lot of other good Bristol folk who are completely down over this, and I could never laugh in their faces over that.
