    I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it but I have had a look at the Championship table the year we went down and we already have the same points total that we were relegated with, with 14 games left to clamber into the play offs.
    I notice that Leicester nicked the last play off place with only 68 points which will be way below the total required this year.

    I noticed this on Saturday before the game. In fairness, getting relegated on 51 points was very unlucky. We were relegated by default for simply employing Saunders.

    I agree at the time I thought we were unlucky, by the time the season started I thought I was lucky

    I loved that season, every single game, reminded me what football was really about and gave me the opportunity to take my son and show him too.

    Hated the way we gave in with the Premier dead heads but loved the way we responded under Jackett

    The only good to come out of the relegation was if we were to get promoted at the first attempt in League One and come back a stronger, young, and hungry team. Thank God we did. If we didn't then we could have become another Coventry or Pompey. Thankfully the appointment of Jackett was a masterstroke and we had a truly amazing season. Much, much more enjoyable than surving with Saunders and spending that year with him as manager in the Championship. We would be a lot worse off now if we had survived that season.

    Gutted i couldn't get tickets for 10k2mk though. Grrr.

    If we don't go up which I think is more than likely the scenario then hopefully MK come up and we can recreate that fantastic day.

    Will be sods law we got relegated with a record points total in The Championship and maybe this season will a get record points total that misses out on the play-offs.

    It is a freak season as it is likely the weakest Championship ever and it might well take close to 80pts or more to finish top 6.
    Such a shame next to nothing was done pre-season and we then mucked up in the second chance saloon last month; a golden opportunity probably lost.

    You never know though, UTW !

    We went down with 51 points but Posh also went down with 54.
    Didn't Blues stop up with 40 last year?
