It's totally relevant, Bamford was the club's number 1 choice and we didn't sign him.

 

There are so few posts on this forum compared with other fan forums, it really isn't a good idea to start advising people what they should and shouldn't post and in which thread. There are so few threads on here, it's like a ghost town.

 

Just to derail this thread even more :P , have you revised your prediction of only needing one more win Billy? Surely more points now required with the other two continuing to pick up points..

 

EDIT: just saw your post on the appropriate thread! Ignore me.

 

Unfortunately, yes, it looks like this season, teams are going to need an unprecidented number of points for promotion. If we beat Burnley, we'll be very close to promotion and on 88 points, if we don't; I still see the Brighton game as our get out of jail card, in theory if we win 1 more game, our fate will be in our own hands on the last game of the season.

 

That is of course, assuming that our rivals win all of their other remaining games. 91 points has to be the target, now, I'd take a draw against Burnley as things stand.

 

Yep agreed. I'd also take a draw against Burnley, would keep it well and truly in our hands.

If our concentration levels are right from the off I think we will manage the game well. No need for us to take risks. Deny them space and hit on the break. As long as we maintain our shape we will be ok. Hopefully the ref will be strong as well. Agree about team selection above regarding Leadbitter starting along with Rhodes. Nsue at Right back and Ramirez back in. That said at home v Burnley I think Karanka played Forshaw instead of Leadbitter and Nsue as Right wing iirc.

Wish this was being played tonight, just want to get it over and done with.

 

With Burnley already playing a derby on Friday it's a good thing that this is Tuesday. Gives them less time to get ready.

I am glad it is not just me, my head is shredded with all the permutations that a draw, a win or a loss would bring. Not sure if I am enjoying this anymore, I would just like it to be over and our fate decided, then again we could be mid table with nothing to play for.

I'm over for the Brighton game, not sure I'll be able to cope if we need a win

 

Due to my incredibly inconsiderate son who decided to get married in Mexico I will miss the last two games of the season so I'm praying we virtually have it in the bag byu then or I'll be a wreck

    • Thanks for the welcome. No idea where you get Colchester from (lol), live just outside Stokesley, 20 minutes from the Riverside Stadium.
    • Surely the club are going to have to come out and clarify their position on this Derby issue at some point very soon...? Derby fans are (understandably) going to fight tooth and nail to save their club, and at the moment they're controlling the narrative around the whole thing. I worry we will soon be painted as villains in the media, 'trying to liquidate a club meaning a town loses its football team and people lose their jobs etc.' To be clear I'm not saying it's as black and white as that - but that's the story that's being painted on social media with petitions etc, and calls for MPs to get involved. February 12th has the potential to kick off massively when they visit the Riverside and I'm concerned this whole debacle is going to start detracting from what Boro should be getting discussed for - a great turnaround in form and a genuine shot at going up. If Gibson doesn't have a rock solid defence of what's going on I'd rather we just dropped it and focussed on the football. 
    • Welcome to the forum and wow straight in I must say. You have a long way to travel looking at your IP address? States you are in Colchester hope you are going to post more so that others can get to know you!
    • New member but long time reader. Signed up because of this so put us down for two - STHolders, West stand.
    • I agree...Taylor is solid at that LWB position, but if we had someone with a bit more explosiveness on that side of the field, then we would have threats everywhere. A fit Bola might give us that???
