Who should we be wary of in the play offs?

Post by Steve30000 »

All of them, for me. The bottlers showed their true colours on Tuesday, any bit of pressure and they crumble.

Anyone have any particular team that they think we should worry about?

It's not about bottling really if they can't play then they can't play, but I would worry if we got Charlton in the final.

We fear none apart from Charlton but this has been a canny season and we may overcome the bogey team.

Bottling sums it up though.

I do think Charlton would put up the toughest test, of course!

They can play though, we were on a great run, then the pressure got to them.
Close, but not close enough.

It's not the first time they've done it either.

When you wobble a bit then you fear all so it could be a nervy time.

The thing is we are due for a win at Wembley, after all, it's been a few weeks :thumbup:

Two wins at Wembley in one season is overkill but I'd welcome it :dance:

We would have to be lucky to win at Wembley twice in a season when we haven't won there for nearly 50 years.
There's going to be those content with the silverware and hope we have a better season next year.
