    Carnero got a reaction from angieram in Relegation watch   
    I prefer to keep the teams who bring a decent following to Pride Park, so Birmingham, Sheff Wed & Coventry can stay up for me.
    I'm also a bit of a footballing snob so dross like Rotherham (and their gobby chairman) & Huddersfield (or Luton) can go for me.

    50pts will be enough to stay up, below is what is needed -
    Derby (18th) - 4 win from 14 games
    Huddersfield (19th) - 4 wins, 2 draws from 13 games
    Coventry (20th) - 5 wins from 13 games
    BHam (21st) - 5 wins, 1 draw from 13 games
    Rotherham (22nd) - 7 wins from 15 games
    Sheff W (23rd) - 7 wins, 1 draw from 14 games
    Would take a huge swing in form from us & teams below us for us to be in danger. Roth & SW need to win half their games when they have lost something like 5 in a row

    Rotherham have lost three from three and Wednesday have lost three from three in the past week. Both are currently on a run of five defeats from six.
    The results against Huddersfield and Forest were huge for our cause and everything else is going our way. Am I supposed to ignore that in a bid to push a previous point?
    Do I think our work is done? No. We need to get to 50 points or more, as I’ve said. We still have to be wary as March and April will be tough, as I’ve said. But we are certainly in a better position than we were a week ago - it would be pig headed for me not to acknowledge that.
    Do I think things can change quickly and we can be under pressure again? Absolutely. But what’s wrong with enjoying a positive weekend of results?

    I'd be amazed if 50 points doesn't secure safety. Average is 47.

    Fair play to Forest fans, anyone that can watch that kind of football week in week out deserves some credit. 
    Not sure I would be able to go on to their forum gloating, was a bad game all round, but for those lot it seems to be acceptable and brag worthy even when their goal came from a goalkeeping howler. 
    As I say, fair play.

    You not been on here much lately? We've told you we struggle against the really, really poo teams so this shouldn't have been much of a surprise to anyone. Rotherham, Sheff Wed, Wycombe, Coventry, Forest ..... I'm not entirely sure why but this group of players just don't perform when it comes to playing the crap teams.

    ...sold Pride Park to Morris for a reported £80m and leased the property back from him for £40m.
    It was actually sold for £81m (£40m profit) and leased back at £1.1m per year. I can excuse the £80m rounding, but he's made up the £40m lease as far as I can tell
    The article drums up the significance of Gabay and tries to downplay the fact the club have stated the outstanding charge with Gabay's company is actually a land Registry error. 
    But with the debts piling up.
    The only evidence available to the public suggests it's not cub debt. Either another of Mel's companies owes the club money (for the stadium), or Mel/another company owes MSD money for a loan which was used to pay the money owed for the stadium?
    “Literally every day is spent trying to work out how to improve our situation,” he said.
    Seems to be taken out of context to me. The article makes it sound like a financial situation, whereas reality is Mel was referring to  getting the takeover completed.

    I imagine it's actually a concern over a drop off in performances (results) rather than the players themselves thinking they had made it.
    In my opinion, the problems stem from a chopping and changing of players being available on a game by game basis. Not just in terms of players being in the first team squad, but also in training. Injuries to U23 players also hasn't helped, resulting in a number of U18s stepping up to the U23s before they're ready, and a large number of U16s playing for the U18s.
    Take the goalkeeping position as an example. Foster, Idem, Ravas, Sykes-Kenworthy, Yates and Moulden have all been used this season, with Halwax featuring on the bench a few times. There's no consistency. Do we need Idem and Foster to be part of the first team 'extended squad' every match day? Keep one as the emergency keeper, and let the other play football for the U23s. The rest of the U23 squad will be happier as they'll build a solid partnership, we'll have a better keeper between the sticks, and results/performances will also improve.
    39 different players have played in U23 games this season (not including the FA Cup game)! We only went into this season with 19 U23 outfielders and 5 keepers.
    Get the consistency of players in the team and the performances will follow.
