Will We Make The Play Offs?

    Well, up to the Coventry away game in 2020/21 (after which some people were even writing off our hopes of getting to the play-offs) we’d only won three games in a row once, and that was actually only three games previously under Munoz, before going on to win 9 out of 10. The same run with the defeat not coming against a team above us would guarantee a play-off spot. And Wilder obviously is a far better manager than Munoz.

    The question is, this time do we have the players, and just as if not more importantly the belief and tenacity?

    Other than very early in the season perhaps, I don't think we were ever outside the play-off spots that season, and even in some of our worse runs of form, I think we always had a comfortable buffer to 7th place. It's ironic looking back at Coventry as the lowlight of that season, for sure, it wasn't great, but if we transplanted it to this season, it would barely register in the 'pantheon' of poor performances!

    I was certain we would make the playoffs when we were hovering around 5th with half the squad injured.

    After what seemed like some sensible signings and the players coming back we have got much, much worse.

    Can't imagine what's going on behind the scenes.

    Just to let you know, you can't all just admit the BWO were right all long and suddenly slither your way into the club.

    We will consider written applications, but there will no doubt be a high volume and a lot to get through in the coming weeks and months. We appreciate your patience.

    That said Platypus needs fast tracking as he’s been very clear about his change of heart. Not like that opaque slithery worm TuT :)

    TuT still has a long way to go until he’s rehabilitated off of the ‘it’s all inevitable’ train of thought. Still a long winding road ahead for him before his BWO membership can be ratified.

    I think you learned a lot from today’s exchanges. You’ll be joining me in the pragmatic centre ground before long. I don’t think you’re a terminal BW case, by any means.

    As a temporary measure, please can I unironically use the word 'rancid' in every post?

    Hopefully not...

    Peak Watford isn't quite on us yet.

    Wait until we lose to Luton in the derby match and then Edwards takes them up in a blaze of glory at Wembley.

    Wish they'd just put us out our misery. Like it or not, we're not completely out of it. 5 points behind Millwall and they still need to play West Brom, Luton and Blackburn
