Snowed under again this week - will populate at some point with the usual blurb but fill your boots...

Let the optimism flow :lol:

Thought you’d dissolved in the acid bath of apathy along with the rest of us.

I’m not sure I can take another game. I’m a dried out husk.

Course, you’re right, forgot about needing a point against them for playoffs. Doh.

I can't remember the last time watching the Swans has been such a disappointing and gut wrenching experience for me as over the past two months. And I go back to the days when Chester City beat us 5-0 at the Vetch on a Boxing Day when I'd turned up as a schoolboy full of optimism and pockets stuffed with Christmas Day Quality Street choccies.
Watching the Reading match? Not a feckin chance. I'll have the occasional glance at Flash Scores on my phone.

I'll just be happy to see a few completed passes and the odd bit of composure on Sunday afternoon, I'm not asking for too much, considering it's football after all.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Cooper played for the draw and then rested the first XI for the remaining 2 games which are dead rubbers. We will end up 5th or 6th and facing Brentford or Bournemouth is equally challenging, so a well rested team may perform better against these.

Reading matches have a history of incident and with any luck this will be a good game in some shape or other

Both teams have struggled and I recall may have been top at season start when Reading had some injuries

I have to say I find it difficult to stir myself for football. Have probably been about that for 2/3 years now mind but lockdown, our dire style of play and the fact that there is no crowds to even make the game sound interesting just makes it really tough.

The thing that sums it up for me is I didnt even realise until about three minutes ago that the game was Sunday

Given how much I cared I am saddened by how little interest I can muster these days.

They have to win, we need a point. Coopers dream scenario to park the bus. Another tough watch in store, cant think of a reason to expect anything else.

Autos are now a foregone conclusion and are well beyond us, the reading game and the two others to follow must be used to find our optimal side and formation, make no bones about it we will be the worst team in the playoffs going by current form

We don’t even need that, next 3 games 0-0, play off 1-0 at home 0-0 away, final 1-0.
2wins and 2 goals.....cooperball into the premier league, it’s frightening.
