    My heart says staying up but my head fears the worst as the likes of Sunderland and Birmingham will throw a lot more money at it! Thought Millwall might stutter a bit but they seem to have the ability to grind out a few wins, could be Barnsley, Bolton and Burton but I very much hope I am wrong.

    All I can say we have to get behind Hecky and the lads and if we do survive we will be in a lot better shape to compete next season!

    Really critical who we can get in January.

    I think we’re going down though

    I think we will stay up, just. We need to be safe before the last game of the season. Coleman will save Sunderland, but I am not sure about Birmingham, no matter how much money they spend.

    As previously mentioned Brum and Sunderland will spend their way out of trouble .

    We on the other will bag a couple of 18 year old loans and spend £200k on a striker from Stevenage .

    The only question that remains is which relegation place we will fill , I'm going for 3rd bottom .

    Probably Brum have got into more trouble by spending big on players and Management Nozzer ? Sunderland look more likely to get out the bottom 3 , wouldn't be too suprised if Burton did so too ,
    Important we need to get a few wins quick

    The last time we went down I felt like we were doomed for a good long while. We'd had a few seasons of dogfights and the drop just seemed inevitable somehow. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm confident about staying up, but I don't feel that we're dead in the water.

    I'd be surprised if Burton and Bolton get out of the bottom two slots. The other one could be any one from half a dozen at this stage.

    I thought Sunderland were well and truly skint? I think they'll stay up, but only by wringing the best out of a dysfunctional bunch of prima donnas (their fans description, not mine).

    My money's on Brum to take that third from bottom slot. Reds to stay up in 18th place, above Hull, QPR and Sunderland.

    Glass half full?

    We seem to have lost our pressing game & sharp passing that served us well until recently - we certainly need someone who can get hold of the ball up front as we seem incapable of this at present
    Hope we stay up but the above posts all have merit

    Could Hanson currently with the Blades be the experience we need up front ? Only on loan though !!

    Like ESR says it all depends what happens in January if BFC want championship football they will have to get some experience players in

    I ent a clue to be honest. Heart of hearts it's probably relegation this season for us. League 1 budget equals lg1 football somewhere along the line. On a positive note I'd say 45 points will be enough cos the teams at the bottom are poor. Burton Bolton n Brum won't get over 45 points in my opinion.

    Even when you're in sh1t you rally and go on a run. It's just when you hit that run and for how long. I just hope when we do its not 5 wins n 8 draws

    I think we'll need a miracle to stay up so its relegation for me.

    we are going down. Unless this imaginary take over happens and they pump some cash into buying players. But I believe there is no such take over so I think the worst is gonna happen...down we go.

    It's the "Plan" and "spread sheet" that's doing for us. It was a revelation when the bigger clubs were content to let "little old Barnsley" take the punt on your Winnalls and your Hourihanes and Scowens off this world but now they're cutting out the middle man so to speak.

    We have to cast our net wider if we're going to be successful.

    My mind wants to say yes we go down. 2 years ago I was saying league 2! Thatís bad! I went to Shrewsbury and thought - 1 off! Na, wrong!
    Same philosophy as 2 years ago, buy cheap to gain results later. Letís see after Christmas, Ďwell drilled teamí in place just like when little **** took over!
    If the same philosophy applied and it works we stay up or go near ply offs! Donít forget at Christmas last year, h town was 4 points off relegation! A lot can happen so donít right them off yet!
    Stop being so fickle and get behind them and it might reflect on the pitch!

    We'll scrape it, by following pattern this season of scraping some results together and then losing a few, but will be enough to survive.

    Home form is the key. We can't win at home.

    Just suppose we gerra point at Fulham on Setdi that would be 22 pts from exactly heyf a season meeanin 44 pts in May if we ed the same form. That wud seeuz darn. We need to get 28 points from the next 23 games. Unless we get experienced players, one each at the back, midfield and up front wi wun beein a "leader", I fear we will be buggered.
