    Drew 2-2 after going 0-2 down at half-time. We played like a flipping under 10s side in the first half! I could count on one hand where there was more than 3 passes actually connecting to a teammate. The second half though, we were fantastic, wave after wave of attack with a penalty and a lob-volley over the keeper to equalise.

    I'm happy with the 2-2 after such an abysmal first half, so it's still all to play for up in North Ferriby.

    A classic Wednesday bottle job today :lol: I can't help but laugh.
    Hardly a bottle job :lol:

    Going a goal up against us (no matter how many times) doesn't mean you're going to win.

    We just had too much for you, I think.

    Fantastic set of results for MK today - comfortable 3-0 home win and both Bristol City and Swindon losing.

    If bottling a lead twice and going onto lose isn't a classic Wednesday bottle job i'll be damned!

    I believe your lot are the lowest scorers in the Championship this calendar year so far. Also propping up the Championship form guide.

    Bournemouth's dip in form is definitely going to cost them, I did predict a while ago that Bournemouth will fall into the playoffs whilst Brentford will slide out of the playoffs. Both still overachieving though, their squads are considerably weaker than those around them.

    Steven Pressley leaves Coventry City after their most recent result placed them in the League One relegation zone...

    Hockaday's a recipe for disaster with owners like Coventry's. Fear they are destined to go down whatever, though.

    Hockaday is the visual personification of 'stealing a living'.

    Who do they replace though? Orient are in chaos on and off the pitch, Yeovil are cut adrift, Colchester are playing a team full of teenagers and Crawley just aren't very good.

    I hope Colchester stay up, used to live round there and its a nice little club. Their owner is loaded but instead of pouring money into the first team he's spent it all on the academy. They have some of the best facilities outside the Premier League and hopefully in a few years it'll pay off.

    Coventry are in the bottom four, so they don't really have to replace anybody.

    The difference between ourselves and most teams in the wrong part of the table was the absolutely dreadful manager. There is no way the team should be in the bottom 4 or anywhere near it and anyone who has seen us play this season will agree that Pressley is 100% accountable. His sacking gives a fighting chance to restore some pride and not descend into an even worse division, this one being crap enough as it is.

    I'm on the front cover of FC United's programme tonight! I've been setting up an LGBTQ supporters branch and tonight is the official Football v Homophobia match. That's me waving the rainbow flag.



    There's also an interview with us inside. I'm clearly going to have to buy a few copies!

    Yeovil cut adrift? They are 5 points off safety.

    At this stage of the season i'd class that as being cut adrift.

    Two wins with 15 matches left?

    ...Okay.

    5 points is easily possible to swing around. Perhaps more difficult in the Premier League, but certainly achievable in the football league.

    I'd say anything 7 points and over is dangerous territory. Wigan, Blackpool & Hartlepool look done for.
