    In their last 22 games Fleetwood have picked up a total of 60 points out of 66... As much as they're annoying me because they just won't slip up and they are the club with all the money in this league and lure all the decent players offering 3 times more than what other clubs offer, i think they deserve a bit of credit for that stat.

    It's like Crawley last season though - the step up to League Two is massive and only really doable if you have the money.

    Its not the step up to league football thats the problem, the gap between league two --> bsp isn't that significant. The problem is getting out of the division in the first place due to the 1 automatic promotion place bottleneck. Just look at the amount of full time ex league clubs down there who still get average attendances of 3k plus, then those who are rising through the leagues (Wimbledon, Fleetwood etc). There badly needs to be another promotion place, imo.

    Completely agree! The step up isn't that much of a change. I rather watch us play a team like Cambridge than someone like Accrington. The teams that come down from League 2 tend to struggle in the first season, just like Stockport and Lincoln have done this season. Even we did four seasons ago. We were mid-table for two seasons, it was only last season we were in the play-offs before completely messing up in the semis and we will be in the play-offs again this season as i don't think we'll be able to take it off Fleetwood now.

    It's frustrating there is only one place available that is automatic, which is why it's been impossible for the teams that drop down to get back up. This is one of the best seasons Wrexham have had in such a long time and i don't even think we'll get anything from it. And i honestly think for us to survive we need to get out of this league and i don't think it'll happen this season.

    From a text on BBC's live text:

    Fernando Torres (3 in 36), Andy Carroll (5 in 31) and Luis Suarez (10 in 36) have scored as many goals in a combined 103 league matches as Lionel Messi has in 7.



    Best stat ever.

    A combined total transfer fee that cost £100 million.

    Messi on the other hand cost nothing.

    Gareth McCleary scored more goals in the second half for Forest last night than Torres has in his last 36 PL games. :ahee:

    I know Championship=/= Premier League standard, but still, horses for courses and all that.

    Brainless. You'd think he, of all people, would be more cautious than committing a reckless challenge like that.

    Indeed.

    He has played five matches, sent off in two of those. And will miss four of QPR's last eight matches. I think it's safe to say he is an idiot.

    I think it's safe to say now that they'll be relegated. Lost their star striker for 4 games and have to face I think 5 big teams in their last 9. Truly an idiot.

    Agreed.

    Think its QPR, Wolves and Blackburn going down.

    I think this has been one of the worst seasons in the PL that I've seen. Nevermind the woeful European performances, but the quality of football has been poor. Bar teams like Swansea that have been a breath of fresh air, and the likes of Tottenham for most of the season giving us a much needed top four challenger, the rest have been mediocre. Man City have been solid overall but I don't think their football is that great-- it's somewhat clunky and there's just no heart in it. It reminds me of Mourino's Chelsea just not as well set up defensively (and lacking the world class edge of that team -- I hated their football but it was extremely efficient).

    Anyway, I don't expect many to agree but it's been a not very exciting season for neutrals IMO.
