I'm optimistic and positive we'll stay up and here's why.

9 points out of 15 in March. Who would have predicted that in February?

6 games left in April. Bradford, Newport and Swindon have nothing to play for no promotion or relegation for them so we should pick up a few points from these games. Crewe and Crawley both have promotion hopes, so a point from these might happen and finally, we have Colchester which could decide our season.

That said Colchester have Wrexham, Stockport and Crawley before they play us, which hopefully they'll lose to and be a bit demoralised.

It was 9 from 21 in March in total. Still more than a point a game though.
We actually have 7 games left in April. A point a game takes us to 46 points which I think will be enough. We might get 7 points from the three  home games.

I think we will be safe (only just though) I think Forest  Green and Sutton are worse than us and have too much to do, with Rose back we’ll be ok I feel, Colchester aren’t too good either but I think they’ll just do it (like us)


Grimsby and proud!

Never ever thought we'd see the day when we're all hoping for a third from bottom finish to the season.

It's hardly a great shock in this league. It's a fairly typical season to finish in the bottom 4 if you look at the last 20 years. Most of our seasons for 2 decades have been top bottom 6 of League 2 or the top 6 of the National League, a narrow range of about 12 places. We've been a pretty consistent yo-yo team, either bottom feeders in this league or promotion hopefuls in the one below. Next season will probably be the same, and the one after that,...

Newport are only five points away from the playoffs, Bradford seven.  The Bantams will be aiming to reduce that to four on Monday, and significantly improve their goal difference.

I'm afraid Sutton has found form, and won 10 points from 15 (we have 5 from 15) and won 3 games with teams all above them, on the trot. When we played them on their "beach pitch" they just looked better than us and they were miles away in points below us then, so I had assumed they were down, and just going through the motions. Now look at them.
DA has brought on board some better players, but they are not enough. As a team, we still play like strangers, cannot pass, cannot trap, cannot throw in, cannot kick corners and in our final third we just stand back and watch whilst the opposition have all the time in the world to do something.. Barrow had our players bunched together in a corner whilst they passed the ball into the net with nobody near them. It was school boys v men sometimes. No matter how you look at it, its bad.

Add to that the inability to deliver any kind of quality from free kicks and a new find comedic ability to try and be creative & pretty much ballsing every one of them up 🙄

Our free kicks , corners and general delivery into the box are just an embarrassment. I’m astonished that a pro football player can’t deliver a decent cross . Glennon could do it but he was a crap defender unfortunately.

Well we need seven points from somewhere to stay up I think. If we don't get three of them on Monday it's going to be very tricky.

We are all getting wound up by the sudden turn around in form by Sutton. But not long ago FGR looked to have turned a corner. It didn't last. There is no guarantee that Sutton's run will continue either. After their game on Monday, a very winnable match at home to Swindon, they have some tough games ahead and it's  possible they may find more wins pretty hard to come by.

It's still in our hands. But beating Bradford is a must in my opinion.
