    Once the probability factor kicks in it's the beginning of the end. Its why the Walsall game was the last chance saloon. Honestly, any team that cannot that game with all the factors that were involved deserve to go down.

    Well I land at MAN around 6:30, probably drive straight down and get a ticket on the day.

    All EFL games are on iFollow for overseas viewing, so you'll be able to watch it in Malaga.

    I love the club. But we’ve deserved to go down all season. We’ve been a shambles - it’s the most needless, self inflicted relegation I can ever recall a club bringing on itself.

    Have to agree. Goes without I hope we stay up, but appointing Collins then appointing a manager who managed in Scotland who knows nothing about league 1 then allowing him to sign about 10 midfielders without getting him to balance his squad or use the players he's has.

    The list is endless!

    If we go down. We only have ourselves to blame.

    Surely the reason we're in this mess is down to the fact that we didn't trust a manager to sign the players he wanted. Can't believe your advocating we should have continued with this policy.

    100% agree, however this is all for a post mortem at the end of the season (unsure it’s even needed).

    As for Saturday, decision for Bowyer is should we go all guns blazing from the off and try get the goals we desperately need, or start a little cautious? Going for it will naturally leave a weak defence exposed, however being cautious risks us conceding and we know our challenges coming back from goals down.

    For me, we need to go at them from the off. The strengths we do have are some of our forward thinking players. Two up top, consider Miller back in the team, just not sure if Payne starts?

    Damn good question. There will be the argument of rushing him back, however if we don’t get anything from Saturday there’s not much to rush back for.

    A subs bench with Payne and Scannell offers extremely good options to change things.

    Could we see Anderson dropped altogether to remain within allotted number of loan players?

    Anderson isn't a loan player.

    That’s what I was trying to understand, but couldn’t see any clear communication on the reports as to whether he was loan till end of season or simply a six month contract? If that’s the case, perhaps changes things?

    I think he's on a short term contract till the end of the season from what i remember. I'm guessing it's the reason they signed him, i don't think they would have taken him on if it meant another loan.
