  1. If he's still going 3 at the back, I just can't see Martin being dropped. Like you say though, we'll soon see!
  2. I'm concerned too. More so about you topping yourself before we've even kicked off! [emoji38]
  3. I cannot figure out that formation for love nor money. Certainly looks like 4 at the back. 4411? With Wilson in the hole? But that would mean Taylor on the left?
  4. Very demanding job that given our collection of rag bags and undesirables [emoji6]
  5. 3 easy steps to victory: Step 1 - Play the Karate Kid on a loop on all screens at the ground for the whole of tomorrow, before convincing Covolan that McKirdy has doinked his missus. That's McKirdy subjected to the crane technique as he disembarks the Swindon team coach, and out of the game. Step 2 - Do not, under any circumstances, give Nathan Smith the ball at his feet, particularly in an attempt to play out from the back. Step 3 - Force feed Proctor Weetabix as his pre-match meal. 4.0 Vale. Jobs a good un
  6. As bad as we are on turnstiles, I can't see us needing to start admitting people tomorrow [emoji6]
  7. Ted has to go in the Stand after every ticket sale and paint the appropriate seat grey by hand. Then get on the roof and take an aerial photo. He's only one guy
  8. Nobody on there can count to 8, let alone 8000. I'd treat that with a pinch of salt
  9. Preferable to the regular 360 minutes wait in the 5 seasons before this one
  10. If only Covolan hadn't got sent off in pre-season, we'd have won today. Bloody Cov Just trying to fit into this forum....
  11. Amoos got pace to burn. As did Rodney. Neither have hardly shown that is what we're missing this season. When we're on it and play our game, we have looked formidable. When we're not on it, we haven't. Nowt to do with a lack of pace
  12. We can defo do it. One thing I just don't understand, though, is why we seem so reluctant to play that 3412 with Wilson in the hole in the continued absence of both TC and BW. Our best performance of the season, IMHO, came when we played that way at Carlisle, yet I don't think we've started with it since (though have tried it late on in games). Wilson can give us, in that role, the creativity we've been sorely lacking
  13. I may be way off the mark here, but maybe Carol is in a better position to judge her finances and what she can afford? If only she were a successful business woman.....
  14. You should be a football manager with insights like that. Easy ain't it?!
  15. Smith doesn't?! Martin has been excellent for the past 2 months. But just because you seem to accept that Smith is woeful with the ball at his feet, that's OK if he messes up with it but Martin doesn't get the same treatment despite you seeming to think that he's just as bad with the ball at his feet?
  16. Smith on the ball scares me a hell of a lot more.
  17. But you weren't. Non league players, as you claimed, don't finish 5th in the league with one of the best GDs after 46 games
  18. 13 shots to their 13, more possession. Wasn't the diabolical performance the usual on here are claiming. I quite enjoyed it personally. Yes, too many players off their A-game, but we more than matched them in any event.
  19. I actually think that losing the first leg by one goal could be the best result. As away goals don't count, they have absolutely no reason to come at us in the second leg. Yes, they may surprise us in that regard, but I'm hopeful.
