Quoted from ginnywings
Barnet have been in this position many times. I think they are more than capable of getting themselves off the bottom, especially given their remaining fixtures. It could be them winning and dragging PV more into the mire would be the better result. Thing is, we don't really know how it will play out. We simply must start picking up more points and not have to rely on others.


They have also been relegated to non-league twice, as have we (although the first time was over 100 years ago).

Barnet defeat or draw works for us. A win for Barnet is a disaster.

We have technically been relegated twice in successive seasons. Only the points deductions saved us in 08/09. This is what worries me, as the last two times we didn't get out of it. If we go down again this season, it's scandalous to think that 3 times in four seasons of league football will have been fighting to stay in the league.

I have no doubt whatsoever that Barnet are doomed and will be relegated as the bottom team, even with a win tonight.

So for me, I would like to see a win and 3 points for Barnet, just to pile on even more pressure onto Port Vale and keep them firmly behind us


If Barnet get  the win that could give them the belief (Newport last season)  and go on a run and catch us, watching PV on Saturday they looked a decent team and I’d now be amazed if they went down, Barnet to lose (Hopefully)


Grimsby and proud!

Everything is still in our own hands but time is running out. The thing that concerns me most is our goal difference which could be crucial at the end of the season.

Got to be a Vale win. Barnet and Chesterfield losing as many games as possible no matter who they are playing.

Well of course you would, but you'd swap league positions with them for those 2 wins ??
Give me more points, already in the bag thanks. What use is 2 wins in 14,  with 9 of those 14 being defeats, when you're bottom place.


Current positions are meaningless when it comes to relegation...its the finishing position that counts and the current points per game ratio's are a decent tell...if there are 9/10/11 games left ,depending upon club,  then looking back at the form and points over the recent same period gives an indication of what you might achieve in total.

Dont know what all the others are running at but pretty sure we will be bottom...is it 5 points in 15/16 games ? In theory on current form we may end up with 3 more say ? Hardly reassuring, if the others are currently outperforming our average then can they catch us without improving ?

We didnt look more reassured at the back on Saturday and we definately didnt look much better around their goal either so i genuinely cannot see another win coming. We are in the sh!te make no mistake.

Barnet manage a meaningful shot on goal 87 minutes earlier than we did on Saturday.

Listening in on Radio Stoke...their commentators are bemoaning the lack of desire and passion their players are showing.
