Play offs


Recommended Posts

I would love to get in the playoffs but just can't see it happening, the slow start to the season didn't help and I just can't see us making up the ground on the rest.

 

Shez says 10 wins out of 16 should be enough.......Well that's almost title form and with only 10 wins in the previous 30 think that's a tad optimistic.

 

We all want a striker in at the club but I for one think it will make little difference at this stage, and we would be better off waiting until the end of the season and giving it a real go next time.

 

I don't think the problem has been the lack of a striker as, like last night, the service to the strikers this season has been generally dire.

 

Most of Davies's 13 goals have been engineered himself apart from a great cross from Smalley in the first game against Swansea and the injury time goal at Tranmere when Liddell provided the assist.

 

How many times this season have our strikers recieved the ball running into the penalty area? they always seem to be out wide or have their backs to goal.

 

I like alot of supporters on this site would play Lomax at LB with Livermore moving to LM and Taylor to the right side which hopefully would result in a better supply line to the forwards, however for reasons best known to Shez it just ain't gonna happen!

 

I'm certain we'll be in this division next year and perhaps once again it has been an opportunity missed as next year will be harder still, with possibly Leeds, Forest, Preston and Sheff Wed amongst our rivals.

 

Will we ever get out of this division!!!!!!!

agree with every word.

 

personally think there is still a glimmer of hope of the playoffs and i wont rule it out until we are still way behind after playing both our games in hand over most. think more could have been done in the summer as i believe, as u did at the start of the season, we signed average players in the wrong positions, with the exception of hughes and davies

Only reason I want to see us in the play offs is to extend the season and enjoy another top day out but in all honesty, who cares, we get to the play offs we'll all be hoping we will goo up, and if we do, we'll come straight back down again because we are not good enough at the minute to cut it in the Championship. Build on this season and see what next season does for us

If we can keep this young team together and continue to add a bit of quality here and there then i think we will mount a serious challenge soon, i maybe wrong but is any other team with our inexperience managing to do as well as we are? If we are patient i our and our young players continue to develop it can only be a good thing. As mentioned above, i dont think it would necessarily be good if we went up this season as we would probably sign a load of journeymen and come straight back down breaking up this young squad in the process!

If we had a fully fit squad to choose from I'd be confident on us making a push for the playoffs. But we're critically short and relying on players with next to no first team experience to pull us in there so we'll be left a little short.

 

However, like others have said, it's so important to blood the players like Alessandra, Smalley and Black to get them more used to the envoironment and ready for next season. The nucleus is there and if we can get players like Livermore and Jarrett to sign permanently, plus a couple of quality additions we'll be very strong next season.

 

Tell you what though, whatever happens, this season will be remembered fondly with some great wins and performances at Everton, Leeds, Forest (I know, draw but great show), Tranmere and Doncaster.

I bet Bristol Rovers haven't given up on playoffs yet, nor Northampton or Huddersfield, and neither should we. It will take a great run but we should be giving it a go. The return of Liddell and Hughes could do an awful lot to improve our scoring potential and ease some of the burden off the youths, who can step back and make an impact off the bench, and Gregan will improve our defence with Stam shaky at the moment. In fact, I'd say promotion is a near certainty :bblue2:

I am in total agreement. I feel better looking at things this way :grin:

Zing.

 

All Out Attack here we come.

 

Forget Greegs we only need two defenders in a 2-3-5 B)

Nonsense. Greegs’ special red meat and Creatine diet which he has been on as part of his recovery program will see him easily able to take the place of two men. I envisage something along the lines of:

 

Crossley

Gregan

Taylor Livermoore McDonald Allott

Smalley Hughes Liddell Alessandra Davies

 

And I would encourage Crossley to overlap whenever the opportunity arises

Very doubtful. The past dozen or so years transformed us from a small-to-medium-size club to a little club that no longer has the ability, or will, to attract sufficient quality that would see us rise higher. Without any visible hope that the club can be any better, it is impossible to attract new fans and win back lapsed fans, and so the situation perpetuates itself.

agree with all that is said here, and the only reason i can think of why sheridan is still playing taylor on the left is because things change on the other wing,

 

I myself play as a left winger and I know that I turn with the ball bring it back and make a cross in, thats what taylor has to do to get his stronger foot, if he was on the right he wil probably have to learn a whole new play, for 1 he doesnt have to turn back to switch to a stronger foot, if he wants a shot on goal he would have to position himself correctly and hope to outsmart the keeper, among other things.
