    A nice 4-1 win last night to move into second place again. We have now scored 77 goals which is the highest in the top 4 leagues in England and third highest in Europe behind Real Madrid and Barca.
    You know, I have a REALLY nasty feeling that second place will go down to goal difference.. And we are ****ed

    I'm 99% certain we'll be in League One next year. It could be a rubbish southern league next season too because:

    - Portsmouth and Bristol C will probably join us.
    - Two from Huddersfield and both Deedar clubs may go up.
    - Chesterfield and Rochdale look certain to go.
    - Bury or Walsall may join them.
    - Coming up from League Two, take your pick, 4 from: Swindon, Shrewsbury, creepy Crawley, Torquay, Oxford, Southend and Cheltenham.

    At least we'll still have the big derby with Scunny.

    Forest are hitting decent form at the right time (I'm glad to say). I've worried alot this season (I wrote our season off the moment McClaren took over), but I think we look almost safe. Two more wins should see us fine.

    Stunned that Coventry are also looking like they'll survive. Donny and Portsmouth are certainties for the drop now, and ever since January I've felt that Bristol City would go down without their goalscorer (Maynard).

    I agree.. Also, the last few Saints games i've seen at home, they haven't been that amazing.. For top of the league, I think I expected more!

    Add that to the fact that Pompey have done over us (Birmingham) and Hull in recent weeks at their ground.

    Should be a great game to go to though. Was speaking to some saints fans at the Birmingham V Soton game a couple of months ago and was surprised just how much hatred there was lol.

    I've lost hope now, I'm sure Mr Tisdale's just picking the team sheets out of one of his designer hats, and I'm sure his new red skinny jeans aren't helping things along.

    We've failed to score in half of our games this season, and the only striker who's been consistent, Richard Logan was on the bench, and so was Alan Gow, who was the best player last match. We're so far down the table now that we need to start attacking, trying to grind out draw after draw just isn't going to work.

    Demolished Donny today

    The second was something special - no idea how Ikeme managed to mess up that cross so badly. 5 points off, with a better goal difference and more goals scored than Cardiff in 6th, do I dare to dream is the question.

    We seem to like winning games 3-1.
    5 to go to consolidate our play-off spot. Got some difficult games coming up though. If 75 points is the benchmark then we should be ok if we win our remaining home games.

    Come on Birmingham!

    PS, Chris Burke is a great player.

    Great win for Wednesday but sadly no favours from AFC Bournemouth. United will probably pip us to 2nd as can't see them slipping up more than we will.

    Having said that we should be a good bet for a 3rd place finish now which means we will play Carlisle, Brentford, Notts County or possibly Stevenage in the play-off semi-finals.

    Last thing Wednesday will want is to play Stevenage again I imagine, but yeah they were terrific today against Huddersfield, it will go to the last game. Easter Monday will be very important as well.
