Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

Where fellow sufferers gather to share the pain, longing and unrequited transfer requests that make being a Wanderer what it is...

Next one I'm likely to get to is Oxford so doubt I'm going to make it :lol:

Mulling the southend trip in a few weeks.
On the way back from MK Dons, the Mighty Flanners said he'd do that one "If we're gonna go down at it". Which is an interesting idea.

A day at the seaside is on for me and Domingos.

Few scoops at the Kursaal, watch the lads get battered, few more scoops, brawl along the Esplanade, do me brains in the casino, night in the cells...

Just had a quick look and unless my abacus has a virus, with 10 games to go and 13 points on the board we can now only get to 43 points. Another loss tonight would make that 40, which is only five points more than AFC Wombles have already. Wombles don't play this midweek - Tranmere do, one of their games in hand, at Blackpool - but depending on how things go, by my reckoning it's possible we might be relegated without playing, next Tuesday, if Tranmere (playing their other game in hand, at Rochdale) complete a good week.

But yes, Southend is possibly where the axe will fall. Perhaps not yet probably, but we'll see.
We can now only reach 41pts. Tranmere won at Blackpool so they’re now on 32pts. Southend as relegation site just crept a bit closer, I think.

Still possible, I think, but it may depend on us winning every game (to get to 41pts) and every single team above us losing every remaining game. Except AFC Wombles v Tranmere on Sat 21 Mar, where we would "need" a draw (but I'm tempted to go along and support the home team).

We'll be at peak COVID-19 by the time of the Oxford game. It either won't go ahead or will be played behind closed doors.

I noticed in the televised weekend games, where they weren't allowed to shake hands at the start, they all did it with the ref at the end anyway

A day at the seaside is on for me and Domingos.

Few scoops at the Kursaal, watch the lads get battered, few more scoops, brawl along the Esplanade, do me brains in the casino, 14 days locked in our bedrooms...
