Saturday could almost be d day for them. Wigan home to Crewe and wombles home to swindle. Wins for the home teams and Lincoln doing the biz at the dump and they could very easily be 6pts from safety. 👍🤞👍🤞👍

Tragic that this happened...... :)

Seeing as Rovers haven’t played at Championship level since 1993 that is impossible.

Or are we now saying getting points against Swansea & Watford is the same as against Northampton & Rochdale?

That’s blue “half of Bristol” levels of delusion.

Was it really that long ago? Woooow

Be interesting to see a map of where the two respective clubs draw support from. City’s tentacles stretch out quite far into Somerset and Wiltshire as well as Bristol itself. Very few Gash in south Bristol, but they have pockets of support up into Gloucestershire.

dont forget chepstow and the forest of dean

Aye, we effectively relegated the bastards in one of the most febrile AG atmospheres I’ve been privileged to be a part of in April ‘93. If memory serves Tinman scored and Ian Alexander got sent off. Tremendous night.

The Saggers and Swindle look out of it, got to gain a point a game on others to be safe and looking at both their runs in I doubt that’s doable. 
 

What a shame... :banana:

Yeah there's no way they are going to manage it.

I think Wimbledon are safe now and so they'll need to catch Wigan (and hope Northampton & Rochdale don't win!), which looks beyond any possibility.

Wigan's final games: Shrewsbury, Burton, Hull and Swindon 

Gash's final games: MK Dons, Portsmouth, Crewe and Blackpool

Wigan will not be playing anybody that needs points, Hull will be up by then, Swindon will be down.

Whereas Portsmouth and Blackpool are both pushing for play off spots. The 15ers might get a shock win against one of them, but there's no way they'll beat both.

Sagchat at it`s finest:

A comment appears from a poster on there says he`s signed up since they appointed Barton as he is interested in following his career and makes some points about hoping he can get them back up next season.

The next post reads `**** off 100% ted ******* troll`

The next post to that: `he`s an Everton fan mate`

Second poster `he could still be a Ted troll`

Their levels of paranoia (and stupidity) know no bounds.

Anyone else want to see the G*s finish rock bottom of L1 on the last day?

I just want them down ASAP.

The longer it goes on, there is more chance of them wriggling out of it (unlikely, admittedly).

This.

Plus Swindon being bottom would be a decent consolation prize.

There could be some enjoyment from this season yet if we get a Gas and Swindon double relegation! 🤞

Merriment not 100% though. Yes Cheltenham will probably be going up to replace one of them, but FGR & Exeter have lost form lately.

Personally I'd prefer that they go down on goal difference. 

 

The gold standard of comedy relegations is where your fanbase has already celebrated staying up and have hung up banners to that effect, then you play an opponent wearing your away kit on the last day and from a combination of results that your shit-for-brains fans haven't foreseen you suddenly aren't staying up any more.  Cue horse punching, tears, incoherent ranting etc.

It's almost worth giving them hope - only to see it smashed like that.  :devil:
