How Are You Feeling?

by Snowball » 06 May 2018 06:16

Sick, but resigned.

This will be tenser than a PO final.

Tense as hell. Shitting it.

We cannot go down surely.

Can we?

It cannot happen. It would need a miracle.

Unfortunately with how football seems these days, the gods will be against us. I hope not.

Quite relaxed If I`m honest, it will take a unlikely set of results for us to drop, but if it happens there will be a meltdown on here later.

Don`t forget the year ends with a 8.

Fine. This shitty season is almost over.

If you can't take relegation, you're following the wrong sport.

Disappointed? Resigned? Even, somewhere, a bit curious.

I'm sure there is no scenario in which relegation would be a good thing. The sequence of events make it seem unlikely, but sickeningly possible. What happens in Cardiff today is unlikely to be where it is decided.

If, somehow, this sh1t shower of a team can both save us on the last day and ruin Colin's promotion party, then at least something truly great will have happened this season.

But most likely one of the other participants in the "who are the sh1ttis three teams in the Championship" will falter whilst we get ripped apart by the Bluebirds; the day will end with the repulsive sight of Colin's celebratory lap of honour with his pudgy arms held aloft, and we'll trudge off to watch the world cup with nothing but crushing disillusions about our beloved Reading FC and possible a nasty hangover.

Comfortable about our chances of staying up.

I've had a big punt on Cardiff, and I'm more nervous about that

If one of the three B's fall behind early, then it will be a lot less tense and we can just get this season over and done with. If one or more of them go a goal up, however, it's going to be a horrible afternoon.

It feels like we deserve to get relegated (hard to believe there's worse teams than us) so pretty happy going into the last game. The bookies have us at 40-1 to go down so while it feels far more real to fans that gives a lot of comfort. But if we do go down, we deserve it.

Think you've pretty much nailed it there AR. Us getting a result in Cardiff with some breakaway goal or dodgy penalty decision would be sumptuous. Even more so if all the other results go against us as well. And if we do go down then it's obviously a conspiracy linked to the year ending in an 8. 8gate on fact.

There would be a horrible irony if the town of the three Bs (or is it four: beer, bulbs, biscuits and bricks?) is relegated by the three Bs (or is it four: Burton, Barnsley, Bolton and Birmingham?)

Slightly annoyed. A late plane change means I'll be somewhere between Brisbane and Perth while it all unfolds.

Pretty certain ARs prediction is spot on. We lose (probably quite badly) but so do one of the others.

Relatively calm but beginning to get that sick feeling in the stomach. I think we will be safe but won't be surprised if it all goes tits up.

We smashed Derby 3 years ago in similar circumstances but I'm more confident of Fulham or Preston doing us a favour than us doing it for ourselves.
