Its time to nail your colours to the mast and say whether you believe we will go up this season.

I think we will go up automatically and give us long suffering fans something to shout about for the first time in a few years.

So do you think if we do go up it will be automatic or via the play-offs or do you think we can in true BWFC style blow it at the last minute and either miss out on the play-offs (unlikely now) or lose in the play-offs?

Go up as champions IMO. I reckon Cheltenham will slip up and lose tomorrow

We'll blow automatic promotion that's for sure, I can't see us scoring enough goals to beat some of the teams we have left to play.

We'll make the play-offs, and fuck it up over a two-legged semi-final.

Evans will declare us an "unlucky Manchester City".

Yes I believe we will.

I never thought there would be any chance of us being relegated and never wanted Evans out unlike many did not so long ago but thought we'd blown promotion with the silliness of only having Crellin as a keeper.

Fortunately sense prevailed, Phoenix was kicked out and Evans brought in the right players in the January window to do the job.

As long as nothing bad happens to us, such as injuries or sending offs, of key players for the rest of the season we will go up and possibly even as champions.

Agree with above on all counts, it's a strange league but for me i have always thought it essential that all strands of the club are pulling the same way for the first time in ten years that is the case. 

 Going off points per game 9 points should be enough for automatic, i fully expect us to catch Cambridge, The championship is not beyond us but we need a Cheltenham wobble if that happens Friday i am with Boggers. (plus i backed us at 25/1)

Champions hopefully, happy with auto though.  Who’s Evans?

I'd say it's 50 - 50 as there are so many factors still in play. Yes we're in the box seat ATM but we have some tough games coming up made even tougher by the stage of the season where most teams have something to play for and as pointed out weeks ago they include all the teams we have yet to play so it won't be a stroll.

Recently loads of other results have gone our way and we've had more than a slice of luck in our own games which tells me a) lower teams are eminently capable of beating higher teams in this league so there are no gimmes and b) we need luck on our side. One thing is for sure - we need to play every remaining game at our best level - there's no room for shit performances any more and we've had a few albeit mainly halves where we've been lucky not to get punished. Nor can we afford injuries to key players like Santos, Williams and Baptiste as we just don't have the same class of cover. Another big variable is the potential impact of of conceding a worldie, fluke, deflection or a bad refereeing decision - do we have the fire power to come back from an unforeseen setback or two?

But if all goes well we should have enough so it's 50 - 50 as our fate is still in the hands of the footballing gods. I'm firmly on the fence because anything can happen in football - and at BWFC it usually does.

This. 
Have to be much better in the remaining games to get automatic promotion.

We need to beat Carlisle and then we have to go to Morecambe and make sure we don't get beat. If we can do that then we are still on for automatic promotion.
