    Alasdair, a few weeks ago you stated that we would have to win at Millwall, I think you just might be right, Boro and Yeovil to take a draw in their next away games and we are definitely still in with a REAL shout.
    Regardless of what happens, I thank all the staff at AFCB as I have had a perpetual grin on my face all season. Remember 5 years ago, Luton have only just got back

    Good effort boys to come back into the game twice, we sounded the better team for most of the second half. We await the Forest and Reading results.

    And how people laughed at me I admit a very slim chance that it will come to this ,but as you say and I stand by you we have had a fantastic season who would have even considered a play off run in many had us down for a relegation run in oh where are these people now ?

    Only the usual few doughnuts laughed at anyone who dared to mention we had a chance of the play offs, we still have a slim chance, what's wrong with dreaming of what might be, I can't wait for next season whatever division we are in, hope we sell a lot more season tickets next season,

    So we have drawn another 'must win' game but thanks to other results it's still possible to make play offs. Nice that the Forest game still has something on it and their result tonight is largely irrelevant as we have to beat them anyway. Don't want to get off this ride just yet! UTC!

    I had the impression (from the radio) that he added a bit of threat and energy to the forwards. He had a couple of near-chances, but before you get on his back, I think Pugh and Grabban both missed much easier chances.

    I really think he is a vastly more effective forward option than Pitman, and just needs a bit of practice converting those one-on-ones.

    Reading will beat Yeovil?? That game is a few season away then, I think you mean Brighton, and at 2:55pm today you would have said Brighton will beat Blackpool!! If we beat Forest, and Forest last game is against Brighton, both can't pick up 3 pts, so if we beat Forest it will go to the last game, lets us just pray that Middlesbrough can get a draw or better at Reading tomorrow,
    Reading last game is against Eddies OB, so AGAIN, a win against Forest and Alasdair would be right in his long ago prediction, Last game to win at Millwall.
    Oh and Ipswich travel to Burnley. ALL STILL TO PLAY FOR

    Yeah we need a lot of improbable favours. If Brighton do beat Yeovil on friday, that effectively will kill it for us due to their superior goal difference.

    Having supported the reds for over 50 years, there have been very few positives in all that time, allow some of us to have just two more weeks of a possible fairy tale, or would you negative nellies prefer us to be Luton or Portsmouth. DREAMS can come true, but believing it is possible is the next best thing.

    Not a negative nelly, just stating a fact. I remain positive and regardless of where we finish, it has been a fantastic season which has exceeded all realistic expectations. UTC!

    His 3 match ban was over before today game which we should have won comfortably .Talking to some Ipswich fans on the train back and they were very happy with a point they admitted they didnt deserve.If Pugh hadnt missed an absolute sitter i think we would have gone on to win and Rantie when he came on looked like a lost schoolboy trying too hard and no confidence at all.
