I was stood on the Open End for that match. My mates went home at half time as it was so unbelievably ******* cold but for some reason I decided to stay despite not being able to feel my feet. 

Ive never been so freezing in my life before or since.

We drew 1-1.

Was that the game when a blizzard struck ?

Recall the singing to the Sheff Weds fans "We're going home, we're going home, you're not, you're not !"

I think they will win tomorrow then be back in with a chance.

Which would be great, as they say, it's the hope the kills. Actually, what would be even better.... a 97 minute equaliser a la Fulham yesterday. :)

Going back to the lovely Mr Barton, I have to wonder if he was able to convince Wael of Fortune of his innocence or at least of his defence case to get the job. If he gets found guilty you would think it would be a custodial sentence with his previous record, so this "long term project" he keeps whittling on about it would be a non starter.

Yes, that’s the one. 👍

Probably.

They are now 10/1 to stay up with Sky Bet. Worth a few quid if you like a flutter....for insurance purposes.

Always gamble responsibly.

I don’t think so. They need seven points to stay up if no one else around them gets a single point from this point on - there are so many team they have to out perform, I’m starting to think they’re down.

Every chance they will, MK Dons season is over.

However with Pompey & Blackpool away to come, even winning both their home games would see them go down, as no way are Wigan, with 3 wins on the spin, going to fail to get another point in 4 games, the last of which is Swindon at home.

Be nice to see them relegated on the last day having thought they still have a chance.

I think I’d prefer relegate tomorrow. 
 

is that possible?

Just checked. They cannot be mathematically relegated tomorrow, but if they lose and Wigan win, they can only catch them on GD. 
If Wimbledon win tomorrow, it’s only Wigan they can catch. And they have to better the teams around them as well!

Remember one game, and it might have been this one, the guy on the tannoy announced that all trains from Temple Meads had been cancelled, amid huge cheers.

I remember being frozen at a home game against Wednesday on a Saturday afternoon.

I had a Saturday job on Park Street and because it had started snowing there was next to no shoppers out and about, so come 1pm, you can go home.

A 99p Micky Finns lunchbox and off to the gate I head. In jogging trousers and a t-shirt.

No idea what the score was, just remember spending a fortune on Bovril. (Might have been a draw, I do remember they got the orange ball out).

Martin Scott man of the match on his City debut.

Nigel Pearson in defence for the visitors, Danny Wilson their goalscorer.  In fact Sheff Wed scored both the goals that day.

I doubt they’re worried too much about relegation as it’s only a question of time before they get invited to the new European SuperLeague!

League One IS a super league this season given it’s shortly going to get rid of the Gash...

I remember going there at the beginning of the season and the sum was out!   1-1.  Torpey, then he took a forearm smash and never really cut the mustard.  

I was there.... The hottest ive been at a match under that corrugated iron roof like an oven

Imagine how Racing Mouse First, currently in 10th place, would feel if they had to play Rovers in  a relegation decider 

They would, quite rightly, adhere to a gross injustice and inequality between the two clubs and take it easy on their Ragass opponents.

Has anyone got that a link to the classic Gas video where the chap is saying they are the 5th richest club please?

Not the original, but he is on here....

IF they do go down can I ask someone to do another Hitler video when Adolf and his mates were all in the bunker with the subtitles. There were several around but the one when Sir Colin dumped them out of the league was pure genius. I don't laugh out loud very often but blige that was mint.
