Probably a good moment to remind ourselves that we are not yet mathematically safe. Colchester are 7 points behind with 4 to play. Only Southend can't catch us.

 

 

Grimsby and Southend are the two who will go, why are you mentioning Colchester? 

 

Grimsby would be 11 points behind if they win their game in hand with 4 to play.  Southend cant catch us. Grimsby would need to win all their games and we lose all our games.  Good chance Grimsby lose tonight anyway and therefore we will be safe.

 

We aren't going down.   Almost zero chance.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves...! 

I share some ‘bantz’ with a couple of mates in a WhatsApp group while watching Latics. Here is a progression of some of the comments as the game unfolded last night:   ’what a bad ball by Cl

Acceptance can be interpreted in two ways. And for me both are valid.

 

I accept what the current reality is but I don’t accept that it will always be that way.

 

Hope springs eternal in the breast of man... or something like that. 

Well said that man 👍

Thankfully I'm 100% confident the former won't happen - not so sure about us :)

Grimsby might get another shock result tonight but they won't get one Saturday

If Walker is injured then it would be nice if we didn't play him. 

Maybe Bilboe is the latest to upset Mo. Or, I am sure Mike said on one of the commentaries that he was injured. Perhaps Walker is fitter to play than Bilboe. Or, as someone said earlier, Walker is an emergency loan and has to play in order to keep him here.

Correct:

 

57.4  Any goalkeeper registered under the provisions of this Regulation must be included in the starting 11 on the Team Sheet, and must start the Match

And all the teams in between would have to win a lot of games too. Grimsby could win every game, we could lose every game, but that many team between us means they'd more than likely go before us

And if one of those teams has to play Grimsby, then it would be even more unlikely. I've not bothered checking though because it ain't gonna happen.

Probably our best possible outfield line up with this squad.

 

Walker shouldn't be playing.

I don't understand how Walker can still be here as an emergency loan as Bilboe must be fit to feature if he's on the bench. If Walker doesn't play his loan would automatically end

Horible thought......points deduction if WALKER plays when Bilboe is on bench....does any one know the rules re emergency loans?

Sure the emergency loan would include the option of them playing and the back up keeper remaining as such

I always thought the rule was if you had a fit professional keeper then an emergency loan wouldn't be permitted. Presumably he can play on account of being within the 7 day period.

It's a bit ironic that we're looking down on clubs like Harrogate but we all believe in the pyramid system and in earning your place within that system, which is exactly what the ESL is trying to destroy. 

 

Hope does spring eternal. Luton have bounced back from a long and dark period, while the likes of Burnley show what still might be possible. All you need is a decent owner...


yep with decent ownership behind us we could easy achieve what Luton / Lincoln Wycombe have. All depends on that ownership though and while we have current one in place we risk going further down the pyramid

Think the definition of 'professional' is played 5 or more professional games. Bilboe has 3 starts, don't know about before he came here.
