    Would be one hell of a feat if they stay up.

    But I'd wear trousers and a shirt anarl.


    Otherwise you'll just end up looking like a bit of a dick.

    Really makes you wonder why they didn't take it all on the chin last season, get relegated and start this season in L1 with a clean slate, as it is they've got a season of utter misery and impending relegation. Madness.

    See if you can borrow a league 1 championship winners banner from City, they may need it in 18 months :1980_boogie_down:

    Because if they went down they'd be in even more of a financial mess and would've been in danger of dropping again. This has given them a year longer on championship money to get their **** together. I seem to remember MM only getting the administrators in when a takeover failed but it's been running at a massive loss for years now. They'll go into L1 now with new owners and a sense of optimism. Fair enough, they'll have next to no players but you can build a good L1 squad pretty cheaply

    I suspect they may not be able to afford Curtis Davies 'down there'

    While this is expected, what's happened with the Reading penalty and the suggestion that other clubs could be in similar positions ? The more teams that lose points the more chance of us staying up !

    Totally agree, but how disappointing is it to be potentially relying on others rather than controlling our own destiny!
