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.

This just sounds too far fetched.

This could never happen....

....oh wait 🤣

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

That's sounds awful. In fact, even worse than living through 2 divorces and the Maggie Thatcher years.

Saw this on Twitter from a Swindon account (hence the hashtag):-

 

Relegation projections...

AFC Wimbledon 5.2%
Wigan 10.2%
----
Rochdale 89.1%
Northampton 96.7%
Bristol Rovers 99.3%
#STFC 99.5%

Now that Sheriden has gone and that we have Tommy Wright & Lee Peacock in charge for the remaining games we may get the new manager bounce and win all four and stay up😀😀

Let's just hope it's a double relegation for them and they're back to playing non league football again. The sooner Rovers disappear for good the better!

Nah, then the comedy is finished. I'd rather them have a nice drawn out stay in non-league, still clinging on to their delusions of grandeur

True but would rather visit them . Instead of Carlisle Harrogate Town and Bradford. 

Carlisle and Harrogate are both decent towns to visit , perhaps just not for the football.

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

I’d be happy if they finished bottom of division 4 of the Downs League if it wasn’t for the affect (or is it effect) they would have on the other teams in this league. Imagine how Racing Mouse First, currently in 10th place, would feel if they had to play Rovers in  a relegation decider

dont forget chepstow and the forest of dean

I was Doing in a pub in Chepstow about 4 years ago (The Fives - I was playing a mixture of reggae, ska and northern) when a skinhead walks in.  Not a regular but he heard the music and thought he'd come in.  Turns out he was Gas.  Found out I was a City fan but we got on like a house on fire.  He was quite pissed mind.

Know quite a few Sags in Caldicot - 2 or 3 lived here for a few years but more moved in recently.  Quite a few City as well (probably more).

It was! Valley Parade pre-fire was pretty grim too as was Belle Vue in Doncaster.

I never did those two but Springfield Park & Field Mill were not so hot and locally Aldershot took some beating for quirkiness

Just mention the red 9/10 of Caldicot to them 😀
