    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    This season, the football Gods have decided to rain shit on us so you'll be promoted through the play offs and we'll go down.

    That's great news! A bit of positivity.

    Cardiff probably have the easier fixtures with Fulham, Palace and Man Utd. Brighton have Newcastle, Arsenal and Man City. I predicted Southampton would go down this season but they're virtually safe now.

    FFS. We needed Wimbledon to lose away at Luton this evening and Accrington not to win away at Doncaster. Accrington had 2 shots on target and beat doncaster 1-2 Wimbledon drew 2-2 at Luton. 2 shots on target and a 93rd minute equaliser. Luton had 21 shots and 10 on target. We're 1 point off Wimbledon now and 5th from bottom and we have Accrington away and Scunthorpe at home (Scunthorpe are 1 point below us so level with Wimbledon) - technically, it is still in our own hands. We recently drew 2-2 away at Blackpool after being 0-2 up with 10 minutes to go, drew at home to Bristol Rovers after being ahead, were 0-1 up at Gillingham and lost 3-1 and threw away a point against Charlton and also dropped points against Luton and Portsmouth at home. We've lost our last four games. We've not won since the 12th March. I think it's a four team mini league now to occupy two relegation places between us, Southend, Scunthorpe and Wimbledon. I bet we win it and end up back in League 2. FFS

    Wycombe are masters of this. They probably average 10 minutes each game. Over 46 fixtures, they probably play 5 extra games. If they take the lead, phone home as you'll be late.

    I've never seen a team capitulate more than today. We had nothing and Barnsley could have and should have scored 6 more. First time this season the players were booed off. Pathetic and inexcusable.

    What a fucking waste of £10 that was. Lost 3-1 after going ahead. We're now one point off the bottom four. What a bunch of dickheads.

    We're away at Gillingham today in a real six pointer. We're three points off the bottom four and Gillingham are four points off it. I've bought the ifollow match pass - never used it before as I go to the non-Saturday home games and our away form is usually terrible so I have never been tempted. £10 seems not too bad really as I'll invite my Dad up to watch it. If we play like we did last weekend, we'll get a hammering. We've got Barnsley at home on Monday - not looking forward to that if we don't get a result today.

    I'm in the defenders club as an ex semi-pro centre half (despite being 5ft 11).

    It's probably just our own English media and the pundits trying to whip up hype but did anyone genuinely believe that Man City would win the four titles they qualified to compete in this season? I didn't. I thought they'd win the Premier League and possibly the FA Cup but wouldn't have put them as favourites to win the Champions League (the League Cup is a weird competition as the vast majority of teams rest their players - even League 1 and 2 clubs do this and anyone can win it, Burton Albion got to the semi-finals). Even if they'd beaten Spurs yesterday, Barcelona are still in the competition and Liverpool can beat Man City in a one off game. To win everything, you have to play 6 FA Cup games and win them all, Premier League is 38 games, League Cup is 6, Champions League is 13 and you have to win almost every game to win all four competitions. That's 63 games starting in August and yes, they have a very big squad of very good players but to win 90-95% of those games is a massive challenge. Yesterday, picking Kompany and Mendy in that back four was a mistake - Mendy's distribution was really poor and Kompany just hasn't got the pace any more. Having said that, Spurs never gave up and the VAR probably gave the right result but in real time, I was convinced that was handball - the angle the ref had wasn't conclusive and I do feel there needs to be some kind of written rules for it - i.e. if you aren't 100% sure, you favour the defending team and do not award the goal. What a game though, it had everything.

    How are Ajax in the semis? If they win this, it'll be like Leicester winning the league or Wimbledon winning the FA Cup. They're probably paying players less than most League 1 clubs pay their players.

    Watched the first Bear Grylls episode yesterday - it's interactive. It is aimed at kids and feels like a CBBC series. My middle child was angry with it as you can't kill Bear Grylls.

    Ashley Barnes got booked yesterday for kissing Joe Bennett on the nose. Cardiff are virtually relegated. 5 points off Brighton with 5 games left and Brighton have a game in hand. and the goal difference is hugely in Brighton's favour so that's another point. They play Brighton next Tuesday and anything but a Cardiff win won't be good enough as they've got Man Utd and Liverpool still to play. Cardiff were a surprise promotion last season and I think Warnock will likely retire at the end of the season. Love him or loathe him, I think he's the last manager of his type we'll ever see.
