Big test today. Need to step up a gear IMHO but we can do better than what has been on show in last 2 league games, so room for improvement. Weather should be fine and looks like a 6K attendance give or take on the cards. UTC

The improved second half last week left me feeling confident but I'm worried this could turn into a repeat of the Lincoln home game last season.

The battle will be won or lost in midfield. Swindon have real pace in there and we must not let them overrun us....

Feels a bit strange going into a game with a 100% record and not feeling confident. The reality is we haven't been playing well.

I can see a harsh reality check today but I obviously hope I'm wrong.

Will be a test this afternoon lets hope we step up from the first home game- it's early days of course but looking to be a bit more inspired than I was against Macclesfield
Will be a decent crowd today - good atmosphere and we always play well in front of a big crowd - oh hang on a minute :unsure:
Anyway here's hoping

I'd take another 1-0 win today. Three from three would be great even if we're not exactly in sparkling form.

Following on Exeweb from work today best I can.

Could also be a good time to play Swindon as when Yates gets back from his ban and partners Doyle up front it may prove to be a really potent pairing.

A real test but we have nothing to fear. Win or lose its early days so no need for knee jerk reactions. I'm hoping to be entertained and hoping our midfield can control the game better than the last home match. We need to be at it from the off and not wait until the last half hour to start to play with purpose.

Can't get to the game today and I think I'm going to be more nervous and a little less certain because I can't watch the game but only follow remotely. Like Red Devon and a few others have said, I feel strangely lacking in confidence even though we are unbeaten and haven't conceded. Two games in and I've yet to feel the team has been inspiring. Today I want the buays to vanquish all my doubts. When the final whistle blows I hope I feel silly to have felt that way and we really show how we can perform. Come on you bloody wonderful red and white warriors.

Where's John Bellingham when he's needed?

I scoffed when my Uncle told me yesterday that Swindon supporters coaches were leaving at 9am this morning. I've just come past Sandygate and if that is anything to go by maybe it wasn't such a bad idea after all.

Yes, it often takes us quite a while
This is southbound at Sandygate. An accident at Tivvy wouldn't effect that. It's just grockles being grockles (just generally slow, ignorant and sitting in lanes they shouldn't be sat in, crawling at speeds they've no need to be crawling at).
Bleddy grockles : should be charged for coming into glorious Debben. Keep '<em out !.
