There was much talk about "the next 6 games" a while back being a tough run and we would know better after that run where we would stand. Never got to play Dover away but Barnet twice, Bristol, Eastleigh, FGR  and Macc is one tough run.

It's same as you were for me. We are good enough to win any of those games but unconsistent enough to lose also. Haven't really learned a lot except that we are good on our day but our day comes and goes. Nearly there but not quite still.

Hopefully, we will pick up as the opposition gets easier but as we all know, Town are never easy to predict.

honestly, theres a chance we could still win the title, but it is bloody slim, slimmer than an anorexic girl.

bristol go up i'd feel confident going into the play offs.

Just qualify for the play offs as quick as possible for me. I've never doubted we wouldn't make them as a minimum this season personally. There is obviously things we can work on.

-Maintain the best away record in the division.
-Improve our home record in the remaining games. (Performances must improve at home for any chance of play off success.
-Aim as high as possible. Take one of those top two play off places and build up some momentum going into them.

We need to get over our big game/crowd at home thing too but the style isn't going to draw the crowds in.

The margins are small. Another win from those games and we would look strong, especially if we had beaten FGR

I think we've learned that we're slightly stronger than last year, but also been taught a bit of a lesson from Bristol Rovers to confirm we aren't a title winning team. The manner of the wins against Barnet and Eastleigh has been very pleasing. We're not just nicking our wins, we deserve them.

We just need to get behind the team now,I am sure there will be some twist and turns before the end of the season but the fans can make a difference (as today showed)  We showed today that with the opposistion pegging back and seeming to take over play that a never say die attitude can get you the win. We have to believe!


Grimsby and proud!

How confident is anyone that the team that turned up today will turn up on Tuesday and take a comfortable 3 points against the worst team in the league? We might, but just as likely we might not, and that is the last 3 years in a nutshell.

Here's hoping we're about to set off on another winning run. The title is still achievable, if unlikely.

I am delighted and amazed with the result today. Delighted because it keeps us in touch and amazed that we actually managed to score 3 goals. That's the difference between all those fans coming home with a "we should have won" frown and a "we wopped 'em" grin. If anyone deserved the result today it was those fans.

Where does it leave us? We have to play teams below us and our record in those games is not brilliant is it especially when a lower side parks the bus on BP? Nobody has a clue which Town team is going to turn up. Anyway, that part is up to the manager and players. The supporters have done their bit.

The reality is that the only thing that is in our own hands right now is 5th place. So if we can manage to win every game we will only be guaranteed 5th.  Halifax can come past us to take 4th.

Nothing like comfortable yet.

We will have a big win on Tuesday because it will be played in front of a very low crowd,

After recent home losses and Man City v Barcelona on the telly,

We will be lucky to get a gate over 2,500,

When that happens we usually have a big win.
