Town Down to Ninth
Wednesday, 26th Feb 2020 09:21

Town dropped one place down to ninth in League One following last night’s fixtures, their lowest position of the season.

Oxford United, who defeated the Blues 1-0 at Portman Road at the weekend, jumped ahead of Town via a 3-0 home victory over Accrington Stanley.

Elsewhere, the top two, Coventry and Rotherham, drew 1-1 at St Andrew’s, Sunderland scored a late equaliser at home to Fleetwood with their game ending in the same scoreline and Portsmouth beat the MK Dons 3-1 at Fratton Park.

As a result of those games, the Blues, who have 11 games to play along with most of the teams above them, are now nine points off the top two and three from the top six.

Fourteenth-placed Blackpool, who Town visit on Saturday afternoon, defeated fellow Lancastrians Bolton Wanderers 2-1 last night.

That is fine because we are the hunters now and not the hunted, and we will thrive on that, right Paul?

In all honesty our own incompetencies aside, best results we could have hoped for. Oxford having purple patch bit in no way an end of season top 6 side, unfortunately we are having to chase down the likes of Fleetwood and Wycombe or Peterborough would be my judgement. Oh how we have fallen! Those Were The Days!

Top of the league one month ago , now 10th , 4 points from last 18 , relegation form .
Both leading strikers out , manager gets 5 year contract , at this rate we will be in Thurlow Nunn league in 2 years .

Looking at the table insert it is obvious to see our inability to score is costing us dearly, just look at everyone else bar Coventry who have a water tight defence to go alongside their low scoring !

On the positive side at least we aren't fighting a relegation battle....

Just hope In a couple of years time that Lambert hasn't earned the nickname "mid-table Paul...". Unless we are in the Championship of course....

Depressing. More so, however, are real concerns regarding our chances of finding enough within the team to secure a playoff place. Automatic promotion is, frankly, beyond us.

Inconsistency, individual and collective mistakes, questionable tactics and possible lack of mental toughness are all potential negatives, that the bare statistics of our current abysmal run sadly support. But, whilst there’s life there’s hope, and that’s what we need to stick with, until even that disappears. COYB!

How the mighty fall, now below Fleetwood & Oxford. Next 3 games who knows. Sadly like last season no end product, one mistake by a defense lead by captain (who do i mark) & its game over !!!

Sears and Keane to the rescue neither of them score goals should be an ideal partnership. Theres nothing like a relegation struggle to galvanize the club.

Present form will see us continue to slide. Toothless. Depressing with no positives on the horizon, apart from the return of KVY soon. He'll take a while to get back to speed and form though.

The league doesn't lie, we are not a big club anymore and out of all them team's, our midfield is the worst

grow_our_own added 10:50 - Feb 26
Given Sunderland are up to fourth, I calculate that, relative to club size, we are now the worst team in English football. Congrats Mr Evans.
Lambert is a bumbling fool. The average fantasy football manager would get this squad promoted from League One.

THREE yes THREE shots on target and 80 mins pissing about in the middle

I know we won't win every game, but at the moment I don't know which team will turn up - the one that thumped Burton (despite going a goal down) or the one that failed to beat Oxford (and went to bits after going a goal down). So can we have a super computer predict that for us please?!
Something is broken - we're drifting into that McCarthy mode where the manager is pals with the players and there's no real pressure to win and we just drift away. About time Lambert gave the players a Scottish rocket up the backside and the players took ownership and go out and give their all every game and just see what happens. If we stay down - we will lose youngsters no doubt but we need to be smarter and just bring in players specifically to get us out of this division - just like Newcastle did when they were in the Championship (e.g. bringing in Murphy for a year with no intention of playing him in the Prem)

"Dear oh dear" in a thick Glaswegian accent.

Only a few points away from the clubs spiritual position of 15th.
