I think I can help.
We need to win this game to get some momentum going again. I feel a 2-0 win for City is about right. Will be very disappointed if we den't win and will definitely kick the cat, which quite frankly never looks forward to Saturdays.
C'mon City - FCS sort it out !!!

Great stuff !

Pity Szmodics hasn't come down with a pox too, he always seems to be a thorn in our side.

Strange weather all this week. Today is no exception. Wind blowing 4-5 from SW but barometric pressure dropping which probably means stronger winds later and some more precipitation. On the other hand it's 14c , although the wind, which is quite blustery at times,makes it feel colder. We've had 2mm of rain in the last 24 hours, and there are flecks of rain in the air at the moment. Not, I would guess, a great day for football along the ground, which is a pity. I feel pretty much the same about this game as the last three or four with the question being "Where are the goals going to come from?". It's also a crunch match as today's match, if it's a loss making us further detached from the top 7. Some rain=wear recommended for this afternoon. Update at 13:00.

Certainly still blustery outside can't see it being a pretty flowing football kind of afternoon - hopefully we can grind out a result of some sort to keep us in amongst it - although apart from the top two anyone from third down is capable and are dropping points - so still wide open for me.

Two matches already gone in League Two. Oldham v Tranmere and Bury v Cambridge. Lot of rain in Manchester then.

Anyone coming in by train on the Waterloo line...they’re are no SWR trains coming out of Central ST between 4:15 and 8:15 because of expected high winds according to the Network Rail APP

Looking for Guy Fawkes to finish the job
Having lost me money on a horse called Pym in the last at Cheltenham yesterday I hope our Christy is not on the losing side today.

In the footie section of the Racing Post one of the writers has Colchester as the best VFM bet of the day against “Exeter who have the look of a side running out of steam.” Hope he has that wrong.

Cheeky barsteward. Taylor should enlarge that quote and post it on the changing room wall.

Although the sun has made a brave attempt to break through it's still cloudy, but also windier. The wind is blowing 5-6 in gusts, and there are still occasional flecks of rain in the wind. The wind appears to be moving round from SSW to SW and probably thereafter to W, but it's going to make the game a lottery and the proverbial 'game of two halves'. If we do get showers it'll feel considerably colder than the 15c that is the actual temperature. Possibly a game settled by freak goals from far out? Thanks for all the train info.

Keeping the ball in play from goal kicks will be important as well-especially if the wind is on the swirling variety.

A win today could take us up to 6th place with a game in hand on most of the other contenders, three points would keep us right in there but anything less than that makes the rest of the season an uphill struggle. So come on you mighty reds let's do em.
