Apologies - going  off topic for a moment: Well done to everyone for hitting 4.5k season tickets...and probably over that, according to Colin Garlick! Awesome job, chaps!!

With walk ups and away support we could be getting over 6,000 gates on a regular basis.

It's an awesome response - no doubt fuelled by being unable to attend for so long? nevertheless - awesome!!

For some reason though unlike most other clubs we don't automatically include them in our gates ?

I'm sure we've say had Stevenage on a cold Tuesday and had 3100 announced  despite selling 4000 tickets 

Whereas Lard have 20'000 even though about 14'000 in the ground. 

Great numbers though . Must be the best since the 5000 target whenever that was

The commentators on the stream were just as clueless!

The main commentator seemed to think that whoever had the most corners won the game! All he went on about!

Strange bunch.

No he didn't. He just said they had more corners. Which was a statement of fact. Commentary was fair.

Considering some of the hostile numpties we had to listen to on iFollow last season, I thought they were pretty fair. The only thing they got consistently wrong was mistaking Cass for Pett and that was because they had each other's shirt on.

Imagine that, fans overreacting to a friendly that means nothing where players aren’t flying around like they normally would. 

Exactly this… our players weren’t flying in like they would in a league game and intensity was down on that expected in a league game.

Good final workout, shape was decent. We defended well against set pieces which was something highlighted after the last game.

Bring on the season

People predicting a teams future season or a players future prospects based on pre season friendlies cant understand the game and what the intention of preseason friendlies are.

The Newport manager did an impassioned interview the other week saying how much he hates pre season games because you have to treat them nothing like a league game and that fans can’t help but get emotionally involved.

His example, if I can remember right, was that Newport were losing and it was clear they needed to change shape but he needed the team to practice that formation and 2 players who weren’t playing well needed the minutes so he had to stick with them.

Thank Christ that pre-season is over. 

Now we can get down to the real business; making our judgements at half-time vs Northampton.

Do you really think it will take that long?
