Not ups and downs per se, but I reckon the CL spots might be done already. Much depends on how Liverpool deal with the loss of Mane, but in their remaining fixtures they don't play anyone higher than West Brom in 8th.

United have Chelsea, City, Arsenal and Spurs all to play still. Arsenal have City, Spurs, United and Everton.

There will probably be twists and turns but it wouldn't surprise if that top 4 is set, with City unbeaten across their two games with Arsenal and United.

If Sheff United beat Coventry tonight and Fleetwood lose at Oxford, then the Blades will be promoted this evening

Eh? I've just given my opinion bro. It's difficult to see how Liverpool won't get enough points, and of the remaining three I've backed City to secure the 4th spot.

Both won, so Chris Wilder can lead Sheff Utd to promotion with victory at the club he left for them, Northampton, at the weekend.

Winston Smith 2 wins in a row for Swindon. 3 points from safety now. :?


Another 2 games where Sherwood wasn't interfering also. Last time we won 2 in a row, we lost the next 4. Still think we're down.

Love pitch invasion season! Also, wtf is with players sitting down on the pitch after the game they just got relegated in?

Cov are gone. Chesterfield as good as gone.

Swindon another point closer to safety. 2 points away from being safe now :?

Plymouth as good as up. Portsmouth need a calamity to not go up now too.

Amazing scenes in the League 2 play off chasing pack with Grimsby in 14th place just 5 points off the play offs :shock:

That's a better post than mine - couldn't be bothered looking all that up.

Would love Swindon to go down.

Late winner from Lincoln surely just about sees them up having looked like they may have made a hash of it today.

Been following York for a few weeks now and having looked absolutely doomed they are on the verge pulling off an amazing escape.

4 teams all on the same points near the bottom of the Vauxhall Conference.

Looking at the fixtures, Grimsby have by far the easiest run in of the playoffs chasers.

Just as tight at the bottom between Cheltenham, Hartlepool and Newport for the 2nd relegation spot.

Hartlepool have Cheltenham and Leyton Orient away and won't fancy going into their last game against Doncaster needing a win.

That Hartlepool game is a must win for Cheltenham as their other 3 games are against teams in the playoffs it automatics.

Newport have 2 winnable home games.

With this in mind, I've had a fiver on Grimsby to make the playoffs, at 40/1.

A lot of the teams above them have to play each other. I did a predictor and had them finish 7th.

I should point out though that I'm a shit tipster. I have about an 80% death rate on the National.

Ha. It's a big ask, but 40/1 is too tempting.
