Looking at the next four fixtures they’re all winnable. Two home, Carlisle and Stockpot who happen to be above us and two away, Warsaw and Rochdale. 12 Points out of 12 would be a stunning coup and propel right back into the mix for autos.



It is a bit on the optimistic side, especially as the previous two games (before Orient) we’re the first consecutive wins since October

Yes it is. Go big or go home. Every game has to be viewed as winnable. What’s the point in playing or supporting? I doubt many fans had any money on us getting a result on Saturday also but I’ll wager Morris sent those boys out believing they could get something from a fixture that screamed home win.

We are running out of games now so even a point at home to Carlisle would be a decent one, ok, not the win I’m looking for but that extends the unbeaten run to four games, with the exception of Harrogate the other three would have been seen as ‘quality’ L2 opponents.

Carlisle are the 2nd favourites and the 2nd place side in L2 for a reason, they will be very very hard to beat and a draw would still probably be considered a good result, similar with Stockport who thrashed us  4-0 and also grabbed a draw up there with 10 men earlier in the season.

If by a huge stretch of the imagination we could get 2 wins vs them and pick up some away points we would be in a very healthy position.

IMO 5 points from the next 4 games is more likely.

Opinions as has been said by others are like, well, you know. So I’ll not apologise (yes I know you’ve not Yadda, Yadda said Yadda Yadda) but I’m optimistic we can get on a roll. Not optimistic enough to put the house on it but I still feel we can get four good results. To easy to fall into the doldrums and allow negativity to be the prevailing sentiment.

Actually it didn't scream home win as I pointed out on about page 3 of the discussion. Orients record against those in the top half of the table has been iffy for months. A draw was definitely doable.

Ah. I'll delete then. Though your post will still quote me, so I'll still look stupid. Unless you delete your post too, and we can all move on.

Fully condone the Sandro out chants, complimented perfectly with pro-Morris and supporting the team songs.

We're told the budget has gone up, and we're no longer in embargo- so why do we have a considerably weaker team than last year? Dont know how it ended with Chorley- but good god what i'd give to have him back. Having Morris in charge with Sandro sourcing the players is like giving Lewis Hamilton a clapped out Corsa and telling him to go win the race.

Hes a nobody in football, Wigan fans have barely heard of him and he's stunk the place out across 2 windows and 2 managerial appointments- get him gone.

Feel the same.

To be honest pretty much every game for every team is "winnable" in this division. Truly think that

I've just realised that Harrison Minturn is the son of someone I went to school with, Andy - he was also on Swindon's books a youth I think, good player.  Fuck me I'm old all of a sudden.

we seem to have an 'out and our centre back' coming in  but Morris wouldn't say for fear of putting his foot in it with club
It will be Brewitt.
