Easter Monday could if their two games before hand end in losses see the trap door firmly opened for Sutton. Letís hope we donít offer them a lifeline if they go better than we hope.

Neglected this yesterday, but here we go...

With 7 games left, Town sit below the line in 19th with 44 points
We need 15 points (2.14 ppg) to reach the magic 59 point threshold.
Over the 39 games played, we're running at 1.13 ppg
Over the last ten games, we're running at 0.7 ppg (!)

Our remaining games are: (current league position of opposition)

Walsall A (8th)
Notts Co H (17th)
Sutton A (24th)
Barrow A (6th)
Wimbledon H (7th)
Grimsby A (21st)
Morecambe H (12th)



The end of season LSPod title needs to be "Crooks, Beamish Line and Sinking"

After 9 games, STFC were third in League Two with a game in hand on the leaders, having taken 19 points from nine games (2.1 points per game)

Since then, we've added a further 25 points in 30 further games (0.83 points per game)

Sutton are averaging 0.77 over the season, FGR 0.86, Colchester 0.91.

Take that initial run out, and we're the second worst team in the football league.

When the Beamish Line record is broken, will the new ATL {all-time low} line be renamed simply as the ''Plumb Line''.

The ''Gunning-Flynn Method'' might also be handy literature when teaching how NOT to achieve superior levels of shiteness, as would the ''Anthony Hall School of Bullshit'' but let's not forget soon-to-be-bestseller ''In Clemente Weather''; warning all supporters of STFC, the dangers of falling for the charm of unpleasant owners.

We could ironically call the new line of achievement the ''Promotion Line'', because for all the absolute wankers at this club bashed on about building a team that can challenge for promotion, it seems they need to be fucking recalibrated on what finishing position in the league actually achieves this  Crash

Just the straight forward term "The Plimsoll Line".

When you are below it you sink, if you are above it you float. Simple.

The Shit Floats line perhaps. (But not for long).

A discussion on the volumetric properties of turds notwithstanding.

I went for ''Plumb Line'' as it gave reference to our dodgy plumber owner but I had considered ''Plimsoll'' too.
