CHAMPIONSHIP Play Off Run in

Just don't expect to ever do anything in them though with Jim 'we're just happy to be here' Duffy at the helm. The (very slim) chance of Morton getting relegated by your mob and him of all managers would at least be interesting for the Chernobyl-grade meltdowns in the Morton end though, yours truly included. 

Don't you miss the short trip across the Erskine Bridge? :P

Not a chance we'll be in the playoffs, I'll just be happy for The Sons to be  in League 1 next season after a disastrous 6 months.

Johansson was a strange appointment tbh, seems out of his depth, Ton are the lowest scorers in The Championship, only 3 points above 9th place, he may well take you back down to the seaside this summer.

Montrose now in the driving seat. I still think there is a chance of a few more twists to come in this battle! Well I hope more than anything 🤞🏽

You'll need to put some results together then because if Montrose are in front going into the last round of fixtures it's all over.

It’s Montrose v Airdrie next week which will have a massive say on who will take 4th.

We are still very much in it, but on our current form I would expect us to slip down to 6th by the end of the season. We have 1 win in 13 and 1 point from the last 15. Very much relegation form and going by reports we aren’t close to coming out of this shocking form anytime soon.

Our form is in our own hands. We all just need to see but Montrose are now the form team with 15/15 points lately so hard to see past them now

Home banker if yesterday's performance is anything to go by, our season is over, marking time to the end of the season, mathematically involvement with both promotion and relegation playoffs is possible but I think Brechin and Stenny will still occupy the bottom two slots at the end of the year and East fife and Montrose to be Fourth and Fifth

Wonder about the effect on teams who are "safe" or assured of a place in the playoffs now that the championship race is over. DC spoke about the next few games as a winding down exercise. It could be argued Arbroath will still be going for maximum points but I doubt the pedal will be to the metal. Thankfully the playoffs are structured in such a way as to give an advantage to the higher placed teams, which should keep things interesting.

The result yesterday consigns us to fourth at best, barring a mathematically possible but unlikely twenty plus goal win.

I really hope that this Saturday's game against Forfar, Montrose will be at the top of their game. 

I'm speculating but Jim Weir probably has good reason for relishing victory over Montrose, following the Kenny Black debacle.  He is a very capable manager and has put together a very good team at Forfar.

That fourth playoff spot is ours to lose, so just gonnae no dae that.

Astute tactical, fighting performance from SP and the Mo. please. Get something from this game and we are almost there, barring a cave in against Raith Rovers.

Now that you’re there too I can imagine Saturday being a pre-season friendly type of game. 

Who do you want in the play-offs?

I'm not too confident about facing any of the championship sides but I'd personally like Partick as I've never been to their ground and I fancy a day out in Glasgow.

Going by the form guide you’d be better with QoS.

Do Forfar fans have any preference for being home or away in the 1st leg, or is 2nd place all about the extra £19k it generates?

The 20k is  important to us, also the matchday hospitality - bonus big crowd etc

Not so sure about the big crowd. I wouldn't imagine any more than 400-500 Rovers fans attending, probably less if we don't win at home.

The money and the hospitality is a big factor. Just have a worry we produce one of our regular Starks Park horror shows and the second leg is beyond us despite our home record.

I just had a butchers at the SPFL prize money. I didn't realise that there's such a large difference between what second and third gets.

Another 4-0 would do nicely. If we managed that i’d maybe be confident our dodgy away form wouldn’t scupper us.
