You're welcome. 

Thanks!

Honestly thought your lot would have their flip flops on today, very happy to be proved wrong.

Be loads of your lot gutted that might keep us up though. [emoji38]

I doubt that very much tbh. We're more concerned about finally showing a bit of form again. Or at least the ability to grind out a result. Was starting to get a bit worried.

Tbh we've looked exactly like that for weeks now, so it was a sensible concern!

The final match of the 08/09 season suggests otherwise, that was embarrassing.

Could easily be a bit of a turgid end to the season for yous with nowt to play for and so many games left, but do you generally feel pretty optimistic? What are the hopes for next season? Europa push? Or is that thing too much of a turn-off even for PL also-rans these days? (not meant in a sassy way. I wish I supported an also-ran)

Since 2010, we've had 6 years of clinging on, three years not even in the top flight, an one year in which we stayed up on the last day.

Honestly, I will take finishing mid table and not feeling unhappy constantly

I am very optimistic though - we have really sensible, minted owners, who are running us like a proper club, finally. Our previous owner has been in prison in China, lest we forget, that's how much of a chancer he was.

Decent squad forming, and hooking the better players into longer deals, it is just so, so nice to have pleasantness abound. For a bit.

Good for yous. Never felt much badness towards Villa for a while tbh; we got our revenge for '09 plenty times. I'm pleased to see one of our sport's big, historic institutions - having suffered through the mire of terrible ownership, and all the shit that comes with it - coming out other side. Sky's the limit now.

Jealous as fuck, but it also gives me a crumb of hope that we might get there too.

Grim if your main fans forum is called Friends of Fulham

What our last forum would've looked like with ads and nee control over thread creation lolz.

As I mentioned earlier in the season, I don't think Fulham have it in them to survive and we do have the capacity to grind out the odd point here and there - which should prove just about enough.

So, once again, Bruce is one fucking lucky manager. And a cunt.

Thanks mate. Yeah, we weren't laughing quite so much 2016-19 in the Championship.

It'll happen for you, he will fuck off eventually.

Look how close to the edge we got, almost into administration, saved with days to go. It was looking pretty grim then, so can change quickly too.

The imprisoned chancer, was that that Dr Tony mentalist on Twitter? :lol:

That's the one.

Absolute fucking chancer. The only 'billionaire' to run a global conglomerate with no web presence or evidence of people working there.

Aye, remember him being utterly bonkers on Twitter at the start of 2016-17. Geet nonce. Anyway, personally hold no ill will towards Villa, helped win us the Championship title after all. :lol: Thanks a lot for that win and hopefully we get rid of our twats like yous did in Lerner, Xia and Bruce.

Sounds like BZG and the Bellagraph Nova Group. Think there’s more than Chinese Tony out there to be honest. But you seem to have finally found some decent owner’s eventually.

8. 

The only hope we have is if Fulham don’t find any wins. We’re not going to save ourselves so we just need to hope they manage to be shitter.

If they need to beat us on the final day to stay up, they will.

When they let you into the ground again, remember: cabbage. It worked for us.

I'd say it's 50-50, and Burnley is huge.

Fine, we're 3 points ahead with that game in hand. GD isn't very different.

On the other hand, lose that one, and GD means it's effectively 2 points, barring some freak results. I.e. if Fulham catch up points wise, they'll have also opened the goal difference gap.

I also thought West Brom were gone, yet they're a bit of a wild card now, even if they've got too much to do realistically. But a couple more freak results and you never know.

But momentum wise, us playing quite well, getting an unexpected point, and Fulham losing as they did feels like a big one.

Should never have been this close, except for this manager and the total lack of care from the top which caused this manager, of course.

Looks ever more likely to go down to the game v Fulham.

Really they should overhaul us before then, but they seem to have lost their momentum a bit.

Even though we improved today, it could easily be a one-off. And even if it isn’t, our fixtures are so difficult that we could play OK and still collect very few points.

It feels like we need at the very least four points from the next two games and then we have Sheffield United as the next opportunity for points before the final day

Think there is an opportunity with Arsenal up here also. They are very hit and miss.

We beat Burnley and they are right in the brown stuff, Southampton and us were 2 massive games in their run in. 

Brighton would he right back in it as well. 

Lose and its a straight shootout between us and Fulham
