Overall last night's results were as good as we could have hoped for. Morecambe did us a huge favour, and I would rather have Rotherham in the play offs than MK Dons, even though I will hate it if they go up. Still 4 teams battling for those last 2 spots pretty much, and anything could still happen I suppose. 

Genuinely exciting run in for the teams involved.

Very tight at the top now and the 2 spots in the play offs are up for grabs, I would feel a bit more confident if our away form wasn't average, that said two of the four aways left are at the 'bigger' grounds so could be to our benefit.

True, it's too close to call though - would love to be confident, I do think we'll make it but there's a massive nagging doubt. Would love to beat Sunderland in the final. my brother is a Sunderland fan, it would be an amazing weekend. No doubt we'll lose to Oxford instead...

Two of the away games are at nice open stadiums in Noblot n franchise.....I'm beginning to feel confident about those....the Mick Fleetwood game has "Lincoln away" written all over it in 50ft high neon lit letters though......and Wycombe has a similar feeling about it plus they are in the mix, although nerves might kick in for them so that one could go either way....

Are Everton still the only side never to play outside of the top flight....?

If they go down they waint have a clear passage to goin straight back up ...sounds like a club in turmoil....like us a la 2000....

Just as West Ham were attacking, after a spell of being under pressure, a home fan ran on the pitch and stopped play!!!

Antonio just waved his arms in the arm and clearly was wondering why he did it. 
It’s the second fan tonight who’s been on the pitch.

Payer’s goal for Marseille tonight was a bit special…. 😳

 

 

Love how in the first replay, a boomer of a firework goes off just as he hits it 😂

First relegations of the EFL confirmed today too.

 

Crewe back in League 2, can see them upsetting us now they've no pressure. 

Scunny have lost their league status after 72 years.

Bloody hell, really hope Citeh don't mess this up now and let them scrubbers in.

 

Reesh it's an almost certainty now re Crewe. TBH pressure or not, with our home form we should beat Crewe with no GK.

I do think we need a point from the MK Dons game though.

With Rhodes and Lees 🤮

We were quite fortunate that he was very loyal to us 

Burnley made a £5,000,000 bid for Tom Lees as a replacement for Michael Keane when he was sold to Everton. Obviously Chansiri turned it down due to being part of the family, but I remember Lees mentioned the Burnley interest saying it was an honour to be linked to them and a move to the PL, but he owed it to us for saving his career.

Little did he know then, that the following season, he'd be having to do 3 defensive jobs in one that season given Carlos playing Reach as a left back and JVA impersonating being a defender. 200 centre backs and that's who we chose?

That paragraph sums Wednesday up. Ended up leaving for free how many times over last 10-15 years have we l cashed in on anyone. Joao? Whelan? Brunt? Boughera?

But on the other hand…

…how often have we said “we’re not a selling club”, “you don’t get promotion by getting rid of your best players”?
 

No doubt that our transfer policy (if we’ve ever had one) has been disastrous for decades, but there’d have been uproar had we sold Lees. Just as there was regarding the possible move of Forestieri. There’s a mindset at Wednesday, amongst the fans as much as anyone inside the club, that needs to change.
