Horrific.

Think top 6 finish pretty unlikely now.

It's very tight, but we've lost the cushion we built up prior to this run. A win changes everything again though.

Our downturn in form coincides with Thor neglecting his match thread obligations. Just saying. 🤔

Hmm. I'm SURE I posted in this thread yesterday. Strange.

Anyway, I think that an automatic spot was a bit of a pipe dream if I'm honest about things - finishing in the playoffs was what I expected when we had a decent first half of the season so I I'm trying to hold on to that. If we'd been offered a playoff spot on day one of the season not many of us would have said that wouldn't be a good result for the year (although I guess some might think losing in the playoffs is the end of the world all over again).

Agreed - 2nd was never going to happen, and playoffs is playoffs whether you're 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th. We've lost the cushion, the most worrying part is the lack of goals and possible lack of confidence that's creeping in. Buckley isn't the answer up front, Gallagher looked off vs Sheffield United, and there's no decent goal threat coming from anywhere else at the moment.

I'm still blaming Recoverite. :whistle: I said at the time when the shirts changed, that Totally Wicked logo isn't a logo of winners. The shirts look rubbish now and the results are matching that.

I'd blame me too.
