    Even they couldn't mess this up...could they?

    Well they still extended their lead!

    Got Doncaster and Charlton next so not easy.

    Lovely 3-1 defeat yesterday, after being 1-0 up.

    Also, as a little cherry on the top, one of their main players, Andrew Shittie, got sent off.

    I realise God, that it's asking a lot, but it really, really would make this an outstanding season if they were to choke badly in the final games, then just get pipped for the automatic spots and then lose in the playoffs.

    So please, please, please....

    Shame Sunderland lost. That probably means they’re as good as up.

    They will get relegated next season however.

    .....then have to sit back and watch us win the cup. Would be perfect.

    As much as I agree entirely with your sentiments Clive I would ask the footballing gods to ignore this.
    We need all their help to beat City and as Roger says perhaps we can savour their demise next season.
    It would be funny though!

    Couple of games in hand for Sunderland but they are poor at home it seems.

    Luton playing 3 of the bottom sides too so sadly you're probably right.

    They're going to get pasted next season if they get promoted:D

    Not sure they will. I reckon upper mid. Might even flirt with the promotion places for a while. They are walking league one, it is a step up admittedly, but they can obviously play football.

    We shouldn’t worry. They haven’t got the infrastructure to sustain the championship for any significant length but don’t write them off as aweful

    Not sure if serious..

    Almost all of their wins have been down to refereeing mistakes, basic errors from the opposition and their players cheating the officials.

    Aweful?
    Not sure if you mean awful or awesome!

    Sometimes teams can maintain the momentum from the previous season.I think this has helped them greatly this season.
    I'm not sure Loon have the lure to attract the players they will need to compete at a higher level,even if they survive another onslaught from Millwall,that is!

    They are also still riding the crest of the wave the previous manager brought them. They will win the league, feel like they owe it to that scumbag Harford to appoint him without remembering he’s nowhere near capable to do well in the Championship. Relegation places and sacked by October.

    I hope Harford doesn't know where you live Burnsy!

    Used to trash 'Billy's' wine bar and some customers on a regular basis I'm reliably informed.

    Do they do drugs tests on 8 year olds ? Probably how they won the competition.

    Ingrid from the Austrian 40s team was so bulky that we were convinced she was on steroids.
    That was in 2004 so she's probably exploded by now or changed sports to a football coach?

    Got the advantage of a crazy Accrington goalie who managed to give away 2 penalties and get himself sent off!

    As if they needed any help...

    All the same, it is a worry.

    One duff season from us or another golden year from them, & we’ll be having to drive to central Bedfordshire on a Saturday with the sole aim of depositing their seats on their pitch.

    Luton feeling the pressure ?

    Shame Portsmouth didn’t get a winner. They’d have been 2 behind with a game in hand and L*ton really feeling the pressure. Unless they win out, there’s a decent chance they’ll slip to 3rd.

    Would be beautiful.
