Can pretty much guarantee Derby will bottle that now. West Brom can finish 3rd so they have something to play for!

Don’t think they would want to face Villa over two legs. As for Middlesbrough, Rotherham’s home form is surprisingly very good and the return fixture between the two sides was 0-0.

Of course not.

But we blew our chance when it was in our own hands.

But at the start of the season, after selling 3 key players we would have all taken this.

We’d always take just scraping in to the top 10 most seasons, bugger all due to the fact we lost the 3 ‘key players’ (I personally disagree with that bit of the argument).  So next season where do you want to be?

Odds of just over 5/2 for a treble of double chance Hull/Draw, double chance Derby/draw and Boro to win - if anyone wants to balance out the emotional pain. I’ve made a fair amount backing Wednesday and Derby recently so might go all or nothing!

West Brom will go for it. As it stands they will play Villa, if I was them I'd be hoping to finish 3rd and play whoever finishes 6th. Derby will also have to go for it. I can see it being a 4-3 type of game. When Derby went for it tonight they were vulnerable and in truth Swansea could have nicked it. As we know from experience with West Brom. They are very deadly on the counter.

It's the Boro game that worries me more, oh and the fact we have to win.

Shame to have to have a moan tonight but another balls up from the club. I bet lots of people buoyed by that result would go to book the Hull game. But only they can’t, as the three unsold blocks aren’t on sale. Ridiculous.

Why is that our clubs fault?

Consider this: every time we play, there are two teams on the pitch.

What are the chances? 

We obviously have to win at Hull but if you omit that, WBA to win and Middlesbrough fail to win is about 6/1

If we can win it’s a roll of a dice.

Extacly. 2 were part of a very leaky defense for the past few season and one who I had a feeling had a one off season, although out of the 3 I'd only have Bobby back 

Next season will depend highly on if we can get Kalas and Dasilva and a striker and possibly a midfielder depending if Smith can get back. 

I've got a feeling we'll scrap into 6th. Derby and Middlesbrough both losing

Boro appear to have the easiest game but like others have said that pressure can do all sorts of things. They know they have to win so go a goal down out the blue and their minds could be all over the place with the form they've been in. 

Derby cannot risk playing for a draw unless Rotherham somehow are smashing Boro and they get to know of it. But even then, its a massive risk letting West Brom have the game and try to soak the pressure up. They won't exactly be relishing having to have the mindset of having to win at West Brom to guarantee it. 

Then it's just the small matter of us doing it. But rest assured if we can go ahead that will filter through to Boro and Derby and the pressure will be massive.

Yep, I was expecting a gentle cruise to 14th. Safely tucked up in Mid-table by March.

Instead we have amassed our highest points total at this level since 2007/08, guaranteed a highest placed finish since 2007/08, and still have a chance of exceeding the end result of 2007/08...I think that's a success.

But there's still hope UTC. Until the 76th minute of last night's match we were nowhere. Now we still have a fighting chance.

Well who else’s fault is it? We’ve received an allocation from Hull that we haven’t got near to selling out yet tickets aren’t on sale for our fans.

And Rotherham will now be playing with more freedom (or for championship contracts somewhere else) as their fate is already sealed.

I'm sure they'll be on sale tomorrow and people can buy then. 

Hardly as though people won't be able to go...

Best away record at this level since 1906. Queen Victoria had only been dead 5 years.

I agree in the most but wouldn’t have Bobby back.  He can’t come back to us as it would screw him up mentally and some of the same players would be in the dressing room.  Never go back imo, at least at this level..

 

An old warhorse returning to their 2nd division old club after a distinguished career higher up the leagues maybe.  Not at this level for me.

That’s the spirit! 

So, we’re in one of the most competitive leagues in Europe, where anyone can beat anyone on the day... except Bristol City, who, when we’ve done well,  can only avoid a complete writing-off if we do even better in every game that follows.  Of course we wish we’d done even better, but in the context of this division that’s not a reason to rubbish us. Get a grip.

And Derby without Keogh and look like they've put everything into these last two games.

If Vyner still playing for Rotherham? Now would be a good time for him to have a worldie.

Great point. Do Derby have the mental strength for what will be 3 extremely tough games in a week?

The one that Derby need to stop us reaching the play-offs JBFC II. But it shall not pass. Always believe young Padawan.

Well at least it makes for an exciting last league game with various scenarios possible. Us ending up 6th the outside bet but as others have stated, pressure can do funny things to teams and players and we could still be in the play offs come Sunday at 5pm

Sky soccer (Sunday) could be an exciting and nail biting adventure - come on Geoff Stelling, Bristol Shitty may just do it after all!

Slight amendment for correctness 👀

We're all West Brom and Rotherham on Sunday then (as well as city of course, but that's obvious...)

Ok, i will get a grip. We were fantastic in our last 5 games, we won all of them and are flying into the playoffs on our merit.

the effort of the players and coaches to get us this far has been heroic, but our performances at home when we had everything tobplay for have been poor

That the club haven't got anybody up at 10pm to open up the blocks that are unreleased? 

Let's be honest, it's hardly the end of the world. I'm sure people can wait until the morning...

They have no need to release blocks when we haven't sold our allocation in the others. Which we didn't until tonight... 

Why does it matter so much though? Its hardly as though people are now going to miss out on tickets is it...

Why shouldn’t tickets be available to fans who are buoyed by the result and make the spontaneous decision to get them tonight? They might sleep on it and then not bother, given we’re probably not going to sell out it seems a daft situation.

I don't think anyone would really make a 50 quid plus 'spontaneous decision'... 

At the end of the day, anybody who wants to go still had two days, plus probably pay on the day, to decide to

Bore off mate. You spend your entire day and night on here initiating petty squabbles with people, have you got nothing better to do?
