Well 45-46 points is usually considered to be mathematically safe (so 3 wins then). If we can somehow get to that point, it shouldn't matter what the clubs below us do. Not guaranteed, of course, but its enough most seasons.

 

Trouble is AR there are not many below us, one sitting on the same number of points and another only 3 points behind and both on a good run.

Perhaps as others have mentioned getting nearer to 50 points is the safe zone?

I honestly don't see where it stops. Honestly think that Woodgate is bullet proof and Gibson is ready for us to go to league 1 only to deliver some crappy PR rallying cry in the summer about "oh we di

On a more serious note, he had a canny game and I assume he's viewed as the clear first choice GK for us.  However, I don't really understand the situation with the new lad as you'd figure he'd be ahead of Mejias in the pecking order but he can't make our bench for some reason.  On that basis it seems unlikely that he could take the place of Pears but I don't know.

It's been over a month since Woodgate was saying they hoped to have Pears on a new contract, so maybe he's dragging his feet about signing it.

But they are saying the same thing.  If we get to 45 and Wigan to 46, we go down.  They have the same target.  I wouldn't bet on us getting more points than Wigan in the next 11 games, based on current form.

It does matter what they do.  We get 10 points, Barnsley and Wigan get 15 and we're screwed.

Other than the fact that he has a connection with us, I think I'd probably be doing the same in his position.  Uncertain times at the club and uncertain times for him personally if we're signing players to potentially replace him.

If Gibson is gonna sack Woodgate though, he needs to do it right after the Forest game at the latest, otherwise we're just gonna be in the situation of the wasting a summer transfer window while the new manager gets settled in.

I don't think we'll go down under Woodgate tbh. There were enough positives in that Leeds game for me to think we've got enough to pull through (or that there will be worse teams than us come the end). I'd like to think there's a grand plan for the summer that's gonna be executed to perfection & next season we'll all be as happy as pigs in ***.

We have not kept a clean sheet in the last 9 league games. We have scored 8 goals in the last 9 league games. 0 in our last 3.
I wish I had your faith as I can't see any positives. There are no points for huffing and puffing.

But I hope you are right.

Nmecha has to have playing time in his loan deal - he literally offers nothing.

Noticed Roberts and Fry sat with Rudy behind the subs benched, I have a feeling they're going to be rushed back.

Yeah, unlike what I said the other day, Woodgate's Leeds pre-match press conference seems to suggest Roberts and Fry will come back sooner rather than later. His comments about being 85-90% fit and playing tell that story as true as it comes.

How are we going to stop up, we can't keep a clean sheet, we create nothing and we barely get a shot on target let alone score, I honestly don't see us winning another game under Woodgate. The positives against Leeds, Pears making some outstanding saves to keep us in the game.

You can see why Nmecha hasn't made it anywhere he's a donkey simple as that, yet another shrewd loan signing by our magnificent head coach.

I just don’t understand why we can’t sign technically gifted strikers. 


Britt, Fletcher, Nmecha and Rudy. 

Literally not one of them has a consistently good touch. It’s painful to watch them. 
 

As much as I don’t rate Britt, I think id give him a go in the 4241, he might be better. I’m sick of seeing Fletcher do *** all, getting bounced off the ball here there and everywhere. How can a guy 6”2 never come close to winning a header?

Absolute pathetic excuse for a striker. What does he offer? Genuinely?

    • Very few to be fair. The odd one whose narrative seems to be that if Gibbo had just turned a blind eye to the blatant rule breaking then none of this would have happened. So it’s his fault. Pretty much every comment on their forum tonight is blaming one person only - and it’s not Gibbo.

    • I would put money that he didn't actually substitute two of the players that were disappointing him at all, because personally I can't see a world in which two of them weren't Tav and Dijksteel. In fact post game I'm sure he even name dropped Dijksteel at the time by saying something to the effect of "one of them is Dijksteel, and he's my favourite!" Now CT has a point and you do have to take everything NW says like this with a huge grain of salt, but I do wonder if he's talking about Tav again here. We've had NW's previous story (excuse?) of Tav doesn't taking warming up seriously, so this doesn't seem like a huge leap.
    • Derby fans blaming Gibson,,,,,,,,Get a grip and smell the coffee. Your Mel Morris is the Be.. end that got you into this mess
    • Christ, that's insane. Professional footballers skipping meals because they CBA to get up? Can this really be true? If so, they're clearly not particularly committed to their profession, or to the club. Any fule kno you need slow-release energy throughout the day, especially if you're an "elite" sportsman. Also interesting that Warnock can tell if someone's had brekky by looking into their eyes. Wonder what else he could tell if he looked at other parts of their anatomy?
