Looks like there will be even less than normal at the game vs Carlisle this weekend - judging by the online doings.

What's wrong with people - if you can afford it, get your ticket bought and get behind the lads - maybe a twist or two before the towel is thrown it yet.....

ps. How the flip do you edit a title? Obviously should read Owls fans given up on automatic.

Fail.

You could quite easily be in a position where if you won next Saturday you'd be ahead of us at least until we played. I can honestly see you drawing your next two games and still making up points on the Blades. However United have surprised me a lot this seasons with big wins where I wouldn't have expected it (Notts County, Huddersfield etc). Hopefully we'll perform how we can at MK Dons and be solid against Stevenage.

Too early to give up yet, tough games all round for us and United, anything can happen.

But even if there is nothing riding on the game, still every reason to go, this has been the best season to be a wednesdayite in years.

I understand that there may be a few non ST holders wanting to save their money for the last game of the season and the play offs though, could be quite a few games coming up in quick succession.

This game will be stuff of legend, i can just feel it.

Wednesday lead 2-0 going into the last 10 minutes of the game,

then,

The crappy little blip on the scoreboard will appear, the ground will turn silent as heads turn, arms get nudged and eyes widen with anticipation.

MK DONS 1
BLADES 0

Just been talking to a gypsy princess and she told me that the blunts will lose 2-1 on saturday. We'll win both our next 2 games. The blunts will beat Stevenage to put them ahead by a point then on the last day the following scenario will unfold. The blunts will be winning at Exeter, we will be drawing with Wycome in the 68th minute we will take the lead, Wycome will equalise in the 80th minute with a dodgy pen. In the 88th minute Exeter will equalise and in the 89th minute JJ will score the winner for us and we will get promoted . The blunts will in on to lose to MK in the play off final. Believe you me it will definately happen

What online doings! Most people on here are saying we've still got a chance.

There are a few too many threads talking about playoffs but only as a just in case thingy.

If this weekends results go the right way, then we'll be a point behind.
With their GD, a point behind and equal points are effectively the same thing.

They would still need to lose a second game or draw both of remaining games with us winning.

It might not be a likely outcome, but is is certainly possible.
MKD and Stevenage are perfectly capable of taking points off them, just as they are perfectly capable of winning both games.

Still a way to go yet, even though they a strong favourites for second.

It ain't over until its over...!

I can understand the point of view though

5 points is easier to make up at the bottom of the table than the top.
Both are in the respective positions for a reason

Surely if we are a point behind and win our last 2 games, taking 6 points; and they win one draw one taking 4 points, we will be point ahead and get promoted???

I had a dream last night that we beat carlisle and the blunts lost 2-1 @ MK Dons. We both won our next game, then last match of the season we were beating Wycombe 2-0 and they were drawing 1-1, only for exeter to bang one home in injury time! The rest was a blur, but I woke up praying it was real!! UTO!! It's not over yet!!

SUFC are 1/10 for promotion. So I can forgive SWFC fans if they are hoping for automatic, but expecting to be in the play-offs. Trips to Wembley don't come cheap.

If we win all 3 I'd be surprised if we don't get 2nd, and I'd accept it. Harder to accept would be we drop points and so do they.
Remember they still have to get over the line which can be the hardest bit.

This is pretty much my thinking. Although when we won at Huddersfield I was starting to fancy our chances.
We blinked first though.
I can't see utd dropping 4 points.
There are fewer more distressing sights than that, of an Englishman in a baseball cap
