Looking at the rest of the fixtures , I think we have a chance of finishing top if we can keep our form,

Bristol Rovers have to play ,Gateshead ,Halifax ,Macclesfield and Kiddi away, and Eastleigh at home,

Macclesfield have to play , Bristol Rovers at home and Eastleigh away,

So points will be dropped, we have to take advantage of this,

Beating Eastleigh and Gateshead at home are our two hardest games.

Barnet have lost 4 of their last 6 games so I can not see them bouncing back,

Come on you Mariners !!!!!!!

We can do this, we have to believe.


More importantly, Our belief must be reflected by the boys who matter and get the results we deserve. Onward and upward.

It is possible. But it's a massive ask.

But "he who wins, is the man who believes he can" (or something like that) If our squad truly believe in themselves and truly believe that they can win, then maybe, just maybe, we might stand a chance.

But, in my opinion I think we'll be fighting it out in the play off's. I am optimistic about going all the way this season though.

League 2 here we come! Onwards and upwards. UTM

Like many have said previously, cheap points given away at BP may well prove very costly.

Using the simple formula of carrying forward Barnet's / Bristol Rovers' average points per game for their remaining 11 games then we're going to need something like 90 points to win the league (which would be comfortably the lowest title winning total since we've been down here).

Realistically then, we need at least 10 wins from our remaining 12 - any dropped points will seriously dent any hopes we have. Perhaps that's how we need to approach each game.

I'm worried that we've got to play lesser teams because they'll all do the same whether it be home or away put 11 men behind the ball and say come on, break us down. And you know what we won't. It isn't actually difficult to defend when you're well drilled and disciplined. Look at Nuneaton, Dover, Altrincham, Southport, Dartford, Kidderminster, Torquay, Telford away, Lincoln, Macclesfield, Bristol Rovers and Oxford even. What did they do, sit back, let us come to them, don't let us create many chances or score and the better sides scored one or more break away goals.

I'm not sure one game constitutes form!

Performances like yesterday and 5 weeks ago are great, but it's annoying that we have so many games where we don't reach anywhere near that level.

I'd love to see us go on a bonkers winning run, but who'd be genuinely surprised if we dropped points on Tuesday or Saturday (or both!)?

4th again.

We might have done Bristol Rovers a favour in their title pursuit but they could return the favour by helping to ensure our play off place. If they beat Macclesfield a top two play off finish could be on. I'm bored of being the Arsenal of non-league now.
