Who would you call the lesser teams ? .
Teams battling relegation , or the teams that's still think they have a chance of the play offs ?
We have dropped points against Yeovil , Cheltenham and Accrington and lost to Grimsby . Why are we still on the heels of the play off teams ? Why haven't we dropped to mid table ?

The reason is that it's a very open league this season . Most managers will say that anyone can beat anyone on the day A lot of the teams are inconsistent.
We wouldnt of thought Pompey and Exeter losing Saturday .
Wycombe were certs to make the play offs . Carlisle are inconsistent of late .

You could show any neutral fan the progress we have made since Evans has taken over . The form since boxing day and our league position and I'd bet most would say we have an excellent chance of the play offs .

Of course we have a decent chance of the playoffs, Wilson. We're two pts off. This whole thread is a waste of Internet.

Making the play-offs would have its attractions - if we won at Wembley. Otherwise it's just stretching the season unnecessarily.

Personally, I wouldn't be heartbroken if we used the close season to allow SE to really mouldy the squad and consequently be in serious contention in 2017/18.

It would also be good to have 3 genuinely local rivals - Notts County, Chesterfield and Lincoln City.

Not you has well Edders? Not since the promotion season have we been in a position where the tail end of the season has given us excitement. No time to accept second best. As for Cheaterfield, Lincoln and Notts County, I much rather be able to look down on them from a higher decision next season. There is no guarantee we would beat them anyway. Also there are no guarantees in football, so it's possible ( though unlikely) that SE will be here to " really mouldy " the squad. Although if he is I trust he sign " fresh " talent. Get behind the squad, enjoy the rest of the season, and keep the faith.

County will go down, Chesterfield will pull of a great escape and Lincoln will slip into the playoffs losing the final, Doncaster will go up too and we'll be left with long trips to every corner of the country... on Tuesday nights.

The season is not over - We are only 3 points outside the playoffs! However, we have to be more effective in the final third if we are to get promoted this season.
In fairness, we are probably at least 2 players short of a promotion team. The spine of the team in our last game was Adam Murray's players - and injuries to Green & Rose haven't helped.
Still all to play for though. Some big games coming up. Let's get behind the team!

It's not season over, that's daft to state.

However, it's certainly put more onus on the home games - it was a chance for us to put an "easy" 4 or 6 points on the board before the games get harder.

My take on it would be "if we make the play-offs then fantastic - it's uphill from here".

To not have a shot on target against Cheltenham with 10 men for 70 minutes is troubling and to not score in 3 away games is surprising.

if we get into the playoffs this season it would be a bonus certainly, but not very realistic

You just made that point on another thread and I'm confused by the reference back to Murray? Evans picks the team and left Byrom, Arquin, Potter etc on the bench that's not down to anyone but him and I think he'd probably agree. And then you highlight Green and Rose missing surely they where Murrays "spine" as well?? I'm not having a go I just can't make sense of the argument here.

In a nutshell ..... Steve Evans doesn't quite have all the players available that he would like to pick at the moment.

You're upset because we aren't beating the teams competing at the top, despite the fact you didn't get carried away at our prospects with beating mediocrity, and relatively few prior matches against contenders with which to base whether we truly had a chance, and thus a genuine reason to feel disappointed.

So what you're moaning about is the fact you were unrealistic with your assessment and ambition, and decided to post about it as if it were the club that's let you down?? :P :lol:

Still all to play for and before Grimsby game I thought that we would easily get into the play off berths but since then it seems like we have lost our way slightly even though the gap is only 2 points

The game sat will shape the rest of the season I think.

Not sure Potter has been a decent addition some how although he has not played much yet.
