Conversely, according to that Five show on Saturday that has done a reasonable job of cataloguing our descent, Bristol City are 1/66 to avoid relegation. Which seems skinny considering they're only four points clear.

"The End is Nigh", "Shut the gate"..? It's a football season in its last spell, not xxxing Armagedon. Buck up, we're winning this one... :lol:

This game is being covered by foreign media TV outlets so there should be a stream to watch.

I'd be tempted to go balls out for the win. 3 up front, Woolery, Clough and Silva with 3 in the middle. What's to lose?

Bristol have had an upturn in fortunes,since Clough was linked to them! I saw nothing but a loss here with Lennon in charge.Now we have Jiminho so we,ll get at least a point! 1-1

It could get interesting if we win 2 or 3 on the bounce now.......

Jiminho 1st game (and win) last time was Bristol City, wasn't it? Probably the best game I saw Mark Davies have in a white shirt.

Was it the game we was losing and came back to win 4-3? Petrov scoring a few?

Top o' the morning to you one and all, from me and all the second generation Irish that don't think that getting hammered on draught Guinness is actually very much, if anything to do with St Patrick. (True Irish suppporters all wear big silly green hats and are found most weekends at Old Trafford) :wink:

Without apology, I am firmly in the change my mind section of support. N.L. has gone, it's St Patrick's day and the lads should be Riverdancing around the training ground all ready for a sunshine trip to Bristol up the Avon (which is actually far nearer to Welsh Wales than the Emerald Isle, but no matter). It's a sign and we will finally take the points (even though it won't change much right now). Robins are nice little fellas and we wish them no harm, but Saturday is a turning point in our future. I have this crystal ball made from a melted down Guinness bottle, a Pogues cassette of "Rum Sodomy and the Lash" and a glass ashtray from the old Irish club on Newport Street , that just showed me a picture of Jimmy Phillips doing an Irish jig after Zac Clough had just scored. Nothing more is needed. Tis written in the glass, begorrah.. :grin:
