Two massive must win away matches in the last week and Warnock has managed to get the lads up for it but not too scared to play. He’s had to deal with losing 2 centre backs this week and has made some big calls. Years of experience - I don’t think we would be safe without him. 

I think we would have pretty much been relegated by now if Woody was still in charge.  Think we would have been 8 or 9 points worse off. The latter would have relegated us with a Luton win tonight.  I am very glad Gibson acted  - although he should have done so much earlier.

If Wigan get the deduction we'd be 5 clear of them, if you take Hull/Barnsley as gonners we look in decent shape for safety even removing Luton/Charlton/Hudds/Stoke from the scenario.

A QPR equaliser would be really, really nice though as it would all but assure us safety.

Luton just had a 2nd disallowed cmon QPR

I know that this is not technically the be all end all game but do any of you feel that this could be the season defining game?

I certainly do because whatever the result could impact not only us but others as well.

This is such an important game, in fact massive without appearing to be and well worthy of a seldom used phrase of mine.

Spot on observation and assessment there DS totally agree😑

Good game and deserved win and even "tunnel vision" Roberts showed he can score when there is no time to think about it.....great goal.

Defence played well and my mom is Dick Steel looked calm and composed.

I think we are safe now!

Barnsley play Leeds A, Forest H and Brentford A - They need at least 4 points to stay up and 9 points to finish above us .. 

Hull play Luton H and Cardiff A - They need at least 3 points to stay up and 6 points to finish above us ..

Charlton play Brum A, Wigan H and Leeds A - They need at least a point to stay up and at least 4 points to finish above us .. 

Luton play QPR H (1-0 so far) Hull Away and Blackburn H - They need 7 points to finish above us .. 

Birmingham play Charlton H, Preston A and Derby H - They need 2 points to finish above us - But if they win against Charlton, that would make it almost impossible for Charlton to finish above us .. 

And then there are still Stoke and Hudderfield who needs points to finish above us .. 

Please tell me a set of result that can send us to League 1?

Charlton beat Birmingham and draw with Wigan...

Luton beat QPR, Hull and draw with Blackburn. 

Birmingham win one of their last two. 

Stoke get one more point.

Huddersfield win one more game. 

We lose our last two.

    • The thread title is probably my fault - as @Changing Times says, I'd posted a thread asking if it was time to abolish the FA. Maybe we need to keep that thread at the top of the board, so the correlation between that one and this is more obvious? Then again, apart from the title, nothing that's been said over the last four pages would come as a surprise to anyone at MFC. It's not like we're talking about chasing SG out of town with pitchforks, or hanging an effigy of him from the Transporter Bridge. Everyone knows what we achieved in the Noughties, but there's been one misstep after another for over a decade. That needs scrutinising, and our supine local press clearly isn't up to the job. Incidentally, since people in positions of authority apparently read this forum, I'd like to say hello to anyone at Red Bull who's reading this. Your drinks are excellent, and we would be delighted if you bought our club. Pleeeeease?
    • Considering we've had to play the top four sides, with a paper-thin squad and none of our transfer deadline day targets plus several injuries in key positions, I think we've started really well. Even the best managers need time to work their magic - Aitor tightened us up defensively almost straight away (as has Warnock), but it takes far longer to work on attacking flair, intuitive passing and clever set-pieces. Also, the team's confidence will be rising with every battling draw, sneaky win and clean sheet. I've seen mediocre teams on paper go on incredible runs because confidence is high and so winning becomes a habit. I wouldn't bet against us becoming one of the league's form teams as the season progresses, especially if we can sign a CB, LWB and CF in January.

    • Judged on who we have faced I think we have had a much better start than a lot of us would have said earlier.
    • Interesting thread well done Smogzilla. Back to the game, massively important that we are seen as the dominant team and that we are an attacking team expecially at home. Need a win otherwise we become the draw king specialists. We are not a relegation candidate this season and not too sure where we can finish but I do know that we are not too far off being a good team for the division. Take it to Coventry and get 3 points under the belt
