Those are the words of Peter Taylor in regard to our play-off chances following today’s 1-0 defeat at home against Birmingham City.
Rather like last year’s repeatedly unrealistic touting of automatic promotion this equally unrealistic talk of play-offs is becoming increasingly annoying. We’re in 12th place, we’re fourteen points behind sixth-placed Preston and we’ve played a game more than they have. So can we stop the play-off talk now please?
Elsewhere our chairman has been renewing his friendship with the men in charge at Birmingham City. It could be quite funny, if they weren’t further ahead of us than Preston are. Meanwhile some fans are discussing whether what we’re seeing now is worse than what Trevor Francis served up. Nice.
