Crunch Time

Well it’s getting to crunch time in the football calendar where seasons can be made or broken – Easter weekend.

We have a double-header away to Yeovil (17th) on Saturday and then at home to Peterborough (2nd) on the Monday evening.

I suppose being 5 points behind Peterborough we need to get a win against them but with Leicester (who looked like taking the title for most of the season) having a stuttering run of late it’s given us Millwall fans hope that we still have a shot at a place in the top two.

Up in the Premiership and it’s certainly Man Utd‘s title to lose now, especially with a game in hand on Liverpool. I thought Aston Villa were unlucky to lose but that is the mark of champions.

Not sure where Liverpool go from here if they don’t get the title? I think this was their best chance of the title for years and I wonder if they’ll be able to compete as closely again next season?

At the bottom there are a whole host of teams down there.

Will Shearer save Newcastle?

Stranger things have happened but he’ll need to sharpen up his defence – they conceded two very sloppy goals to Chelsea at the weekend. I’m hoping Middlesbrough can get themselves out of trouble as the lad I share an office with is a fan of theirs.

Back to League One and I think we really need to pull off some big wins to get automatic promotion – starting with a victory at home to Peterborough… lose that and I suspect it’ll be the playoffs for us. 😦

We haven’t won a playoff match in our history so it doesn’t bode well if we end up in the lottery that is the playoffs.

Here’s hoping it doesn’t come to that πŸ™‚

  1. Hold out on the play off hopes. Being a Doncaster fan last seasons finale was AMAZING! You never know what’ll happen in football.
    Nice reviews all over the place. When I get more time I might dive into your archives. The games reviews especially. If I had a PS3 I’d subscribe…
