Calm down old boy. Want some of my blood pressure tablets?
Win 3 of our remaining matches and we are up.
Anyway, yet another tough game, but one that is winnable. UTC
Nah, I’m good without the meds thanks. If we need 3 wins from Tranmere, Rochdale, Barrow, Northampton and Vale I’d be worried. Tranmere, Northampton and Vale will all be very difficult games. I’d be worried if we went into the Northampton game still needing a win.

Let Vale hammer Rovers, we win at Tranmere, and Mansfield and Northampton both fail to win, job’s a good ‘un.

We'll have to agree to disagree then. Need Rovers to beat Vale

The max Rovers can get is 82 points from four games. We are picking up more than 5 points from 5 games. Not worried about anyone other than Vale and Mansfield.
Rationally looking at the way we are playing and the confidence within the squad we should easily pick up more than 5 points. However, there is a part of me that remembers how we always struggle at Tranmere and thinks we could lose tonight. Then I also think we could be due another frustrating goalless draw at home and then suddenly there would be a lot of pressure on the Barrow match ahead of the difficult last 2 matches.

If we win and Vale win, it means Rovers can’t catch us, meaning only Northampton and Mansfield can (in terms of the automatics, Vale are already there). Right now, Rovers can catch us.
Your mindset and logic is completely twisted. We are going to have to blow up in catastrophic proportions for Rovers to catch us. Vale on the other hand, as I pointed out, could overtake us today. I'd sooner keep them all at arm's length which is what a Rovers win will do for us.
