We Get What We Deserve

We Get What We Deserve

The long haul of another Championship season is almost at an end, but Barnsley still remain uncertain about which league they will be playing their football in next season.

With just one game left, Simon Davey's side need only a point to secure safety for another season in English football's second tier. But Bryan Gunn's Norwich City will be looking to make a miraculous escape on the final day of the season this Sunday.

The Canaries need nothing less than a victory at the Valley against already relegated Charlton Athletic, but will still join their opponents and Southampton in League 1 next season, should Plymouth fail to beat the Tykes.

Looking at Barnsley's season from anything other than a Barnsley supporters point of view is a very difficult thing to do, but the facts are, if a side accumulates more points than any other team in their division, they are crowned champions, as Wolves were on Saturday. By the same token, if a side doesn't collect more points than three other teams in their league, they are relegated - and without addressing the complications and injustices of F.A. sanctioned point deductions, who's to argue with the facts?

So when 3pm comes on Sunday and the last relegation place in the Championship has been irreversably filled, Barnsley supporters, players and staff will know whether they do indeed deserve to stay in the division.

Such a fine line as to what we deserve! I think we've had a lot of bad luck this season, and certainly wouldn't agree with it have evened itself out...

I think we've had a pretty poor season, injuries or not. A lot of our problems, I believe have been down to really bad loan signings to the cover for the injured players. Rigters has been one of the worst signings of the century, he should have been sent back to Blackburn long ago, Teal? waste of time! We had no cup runs to distract us so the playing schedule hasn't been as gruelling as last season. A lot of the dropped points have come down to individual errors and silly mistakes. We have however played with a lot more flair than in previous seasons, but unfortunately with no consistence. Despite what we have failed to acheive this season though, I do believe we deserve to be in this league and for all my sins I believe Simon Davey should be given the chance next season to pull something out of the bag.
