  1. They're all massive now, but if we can win this then Tuesday's draw is a great result. Can't call any of the games right now though, squeaky bum season!


    Injuries permitting, I'd probably only make the one change. Bringing Martin in for Walker to deal with their aerial threat.

  2. Couldn't make last night (or Saturday) thanks to a little covid but managed to catch it on iFollow.


    Thought to a man we were the better side overall. Mansfield got themselves on top when they brought O'Toole on and moved Hawkins further forward, but when Benning and Harratt came on it gave us the energy boost we needed.


    MoM for me was Smith, in fact I think he's an outside shout for player of the season. He's been a formidable foe for so many strikers this season, he's been outstanding in my view.


    When we were going through our sticky patch and couldn't buy a win, I knew that those who were seemingly flying simply wouldn't be able to keep up their form. Tranmere's form has faltered, FGR can't buy a win right now, Sutton and Mansfield have now lost 2 on the spin. Also had the faith that we would start hitting our stride again and scoring the goals again.


    On to Bradford on Saturday, a point isn't a bad result, 3 makes things really interesting!

    I guess his 32% win ratio at Walsall was just a blip then? 

    Well, if you want to look at it like that, it would appear yes it was a blip in his career so far...


    Salisbury City 53.5%

    Bristol Rovers 42.3%

    Walsall 32.9%

    Port Vale 45.8%

    For anyone driving, there is a Sainsbury's right next to the ground which is normally restricted parking but you can prebook a space for like 6 hours tomorrow night for £2.60.


    Sainsbury's on Nottingham road.

    A lot easier to get in and out of than that really small tight car park by the railway station and cheaper too. 

    Don't suppose you have the location ID at all?

    Ken Barnes,Man.City,was phoned by someone from Crewe regarding Bennell.”Messing about with kids” was part of the  conversation.

    I'm very very surprised more hasn't been made of this comment from the Despatches episode back in the 90's. It totally goes against all claims from Crewe that they knew nothing of it, well there it was, on film, that they did know!

  6. I think this is pretty telling from the 200% website, given the legal role of the person giving the statement...


    Polly Handford, the FA’s director of legal and governance, added that:

    I think where someone’s removed from football office for safeguarding reasons, that will be because we have we have seen that there’s been an assessment that that particular individual could potentially cause or pose a risk of harm to children.
