As an outside bet for relegation, come on Preston and beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Wigan have won.  Could stay up even if they get the points deduction.

Does anybody know the team with the highest points to get relegated from the championship? Definitely looks like it could be broken this year

Was it Peterborough with 56?

Would still be 5 points from safety, with only 12 to play for.

But they've got 3 very winnable fixtures against relegation rivals, so it could happen.

They could easily get 9 points from next 3 games.  Play Barnsley, Hull then Charlton.

Bristol City held on to beat Hull.  Good result for us 

Makes me little bit sad we diddnt either get a draw or beat hull, giving us an extra point and taking 2 off Hull as the table stands would land them in massive trouble.

We're still ahead of them.  Just need to make sure teams below us don't pick up more points than we do. Some of them play each other, unfortunately, so we need to somehow make sure we pick up more points.  A win and a draw might just be enough as long as losses don't dent our goal difference too much.  Think we probably need to somehow get two wins, though.

Playing those three teams is probably good new for us. The more points Wigan get, the more it keeps the others in the mire. The probably points deduction will mean  Wigan can’t relax as they could otherwise maybe do. Best result might be if they beat Hull and Charlton and draw against Barnsley. That would help keep those three teams down and only leave Wigan potentially one point more that we currently have.

dont forget Wednesday aren’t necessarily safe. League supposed to rule on their ground sale this week and if they do, any points deduction would leave them in trouble, especially as they are in poor form. A loss against Preston tonight would be a good result.

Dont like idea of relying on points deductions to keep us up and hope it doesn’t come to that. I would take it though over a relegation.

sheffield wednesday went from 1-0 up to losing 2-1. They are in serious trouble if they get a points deduction

Just looked at Dirty Leeds remaining fixtures......now torn between wanting them to win at least 3 games...or just willing them to do their Devon Loch routine (one for the oldies)....very conflicted

    • I think the Parkinson sacking may bite the Makems in the backside. I assume there is more to the story than just the on field performances, if not they may just have sealed their long term fate in League One for a very long time.
    • Whoever gets it has a job on their hands. Used to be known for bringing local kids through and according to relatives most of the promising kids from the area choose us over them now
    • my late wife met him at a fan convention in Harrogate some years back and she said he came across as a very straightforward guy, spent a considerable time chatting to her and her friend and even got a couple of the other guests (Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch, I think) to do the same. Viewed himself as an ordinary person who'd been lucky in life and was just as happy to send himself up as play serious roles, but took the Green Cross Code very seriously to the extent that he was prouder of that than his role in Star Wars... One of his favourite sketches      
    • I think Bettinelli is a good organiser and engages with his defence. His Goalkeeping ability is average at this level like a lot of other Keepers. I think we have to remember that if he was great he wouldn't be here. When Shay Given came on loan just watching him was a joy and that was including the warm ups where he was aware of the kids walking behind the goal waving flags when he used to tell the players to stop firing practice shots at him in case it hit one of the little ones. Small things but they matter and tell a lot about the man. He always made marks in the turf (probably much to the annoyance of the Groundsmen) so he knew his positioning in the heat of the action and was always exercising to keep warm and alert. Another Keeper I liked was Paul Smith, a comparative nobody in the history of Goalkeeping but I have positive memories of him always giving his best during his short tenure here. Likewise I have good memories of Danny Coyne. I remember when Mark Schwarzer first arrived he was a good Keeper but his kicking was terrible, he struggled to reach the half way line. After the first Summer break something had improved (presumably coaching and practice) immeasurably as the length of his kicks were half as much again after that.   Willie Whigham was a real character, Jim Platt possibly my favourite whilst Steve Pears was probably one of the best in living memory. Keepers, they come and go, some leave positive memories and some like Valdes and Guzan are best forgotten about.
    • You mustn't have been at that game then, that Boro fans felt we had a better chance with ten men tells the true story. He was an absolute liability, appallingly poor, how on earth he had earned a living in the professional game is a mystery. That Villa fans beforehand had nicknamed him "Bad" instead of "Brad" fills in the gaps.
