    We're in to December, and seeing as I can't boast about my team, here are my over and under achievers for each league

    Championship: Brentford (Over) a special mention for Bournemouth but because we dismantled Brentford last year and this year they did likewise to use they deserve it. Wigan (Under) When you consider their run after Coyle last year I had to assume they'd be up there, then again they are relying on Leon Barnett..

    League 1: Oldham (Over) Never anything better than mid table obsucirty for them, but this season they seem to have got something about them, and Elokobi ofc. Leyton Orient (under) probably not helped by how much they overachieved last year and how close they got, but what with the takeover, they should be doing far better.

    League 2: Wycombe (Over) No money, stayed up last day last season, been very consistently leading an inconsistent league. Carlisle (Under) for a club that loves to yo-yo, they are really fudging about this year, might stay up because Hartlepool are terrible and someone else will be involved in the last day scramble there always is.

    What d'ya all think?

    Listening on the radio - first half sounded very tight and cagey from both teams.

    Up to 3rd, but only 2 points off top with a game in hand.
    Sounded a bit lucky to be honest - they had more chances but we got the goal.

    MK Dons did not take over Wimbledon's honours list.

    They gave it back eventually but the initial takeover included the FA Cup and previous league achievements.

    No Luton who look like they're on course for back to back promotions?

    Amazed to see Orient so far down the table considering their squad is full of Championship players. Their wage bill must be obscene.

    Can't call a team promoted from the Conference over achievers. Both Stevenage and Crawley have had back to back promotions through. Those leagues are very similar in terms of quality.

    Tbf, Luton were expected to do quite well this season whereas Wycombe weren't - plus Luton have been pissing around for too long in the conference that when they eventually got up I thought they might be able to do back to back.

    Full credit to Wycombe after the turmoil they have been through I suspect they will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season but I do feel Luton will achieve back to back promotions, I do wonder if anything will ever come of a new ground for them though.

    Also mention on Leyton Orient, so often we see teams makes the play offs the previous season only for the following season to be in a relegation battle.

    If I remember correctly you have to go underneath someone's house just to get to the away end.

    Yeah, a few mates of mine are Luton fans. Horrible fanbase, horrible club. Not helped by the fanbase's EDL links either.

    I have fond memories of wins at Luton but I agree with the views on the club, ground and fans. I was there in the away end to see them promoted to the Championship a few years back and afterwards their fans seemed much more interested in aggro with us than celebrating the fact that they'd gone up. Idiots.
