We can lose every game and still stay up with up to 3 points to spare! This is what happens if we lose every game and Chesterfield and Barnet lose every game apart from the ones against us. They play each other in the final game, and the result wouldn't matter, but this is what the table would look like with a draw.

19     Port Vale     46     -11     53
20     Yeovil     46     -16     49
21     Crewe     46     -23     42
22     Grimsby     46     -37     37
23     Chesterfield     46     -39     34
24     Barnet     46     -34     33

OK it's not going to happen like this but if the bottom two keep losing we could end up needing very few more points to survive.

Barnet's run in is as easy as they could possibly hope for. They're bottom of the league for a reason so hopefully their poor form will continue but they could get quite a few points yet.

They had something like 21 efforts on goal yesterday. I appreciate they didn't score but it suggests they aren't going to go quietly

If we don’t play better then we did yesterday we might?
I know we ground out a point and didn’t give up and the players deserve huge credit for that, but PV where below us remember and Only Macca stopped in been 0-3
Jolly has a big job on his hands and questions must be asked as to why Slade was allowed to shift any quality we had
Jones Osbourne Etc
It will be touch and go and we must be safe before we go to the villagers for obvious reasons
Hope you’re a v v quick learner MJ after yesterday
Come on Town!!

If we can’t get 9 points from the home games I can’t see us staying up TBH.

At the moment, any sort of win looks utterly unlikely and has done for a long time. Even a goal or a clear cut chance is a complete shock. On that basis I think we are highly likely to be relegated, these players are so poor. The Jolley X factor is all we've got. One game at a time...

I hope we are going to be alright.

I think yesterday we got behind the team and it showed. it could have been a lot worse but we battled

Mr Jolley knows the battle we are in and I think he can stop the poison

His reactions yesterday was everything I hoped from a new manager he seemed to realise what this club means to the town

If the manager has passion it either rubs off on the players else he will pick players that it does.

Mr Slade had no passion and it showed
