It's getting to the stage of the season where you don't really want to be playing a team in a relegation fight.
I still think we'll have too much for Oldham. I'd be tempted to leave Stubbs out rather than rush him back. We'll need him for the run in when we play a number of promotion rivals...
We're 12 games in, just over a quarter of league games played and its a fair time to reflect on the season so far.
We're a point of the play offs, 4 points off the auto's, and 7 clear of the relegation spots.
Positives are we've only lost once, the new signings (particularly Ray, Dieng, Nombe...
FGR have had a good start to the season winning all their league games until a 2-0 defeat at home to Port Vale last weekend. They have also had the crazy result of a 6-3 win against Crawley the week before.
We now have plenty of numbers within the squad so no excuses on that front. Obviously it...
A trip to the capital to face a much fancied Orient side this season.
I remember going to Orient as a young teen of 13 years old to watch City. I was on the away terrace pre match having a sneaky ciggy when my Uncle, of whom I was unaware was attending the game, approached me and said "I...
Difficult fixture given our circumstances.
I'm guessing that we'll set up the same as against Bradford with Caprice replacing Key and Amond replacing Nombe.
Hopefully Dieng is fit but from what I saw of Kite last Saturday he's a more than adequate replacement if required.
A draw would be a...
A new season, new pitch and new players, but old friends meet again and whatever the result its incredible to be back at SJP.
Come on City, put the doubts to rest with a resounding win.
"Terry Coopers Red and White Army, we're going up as farking Champions "
Another win should see us move nicely up the table. Maybe we'll have Joel Randall back or Willmott might get a start after a few days training with the team.
Weather looks OK between now and the game so no chance of a postponement, unless covid grips one of the teams of course.
2-0 Collins and...
On paper and form our easiest fixture thus far, although we know well that means very little.
I think we're gathering momentum and I'm going for a tight 1 nil victory, Bowman with the goal late in the game.
Start with the same side that started against Cambridge.
Hard to call this one with another tricky game on paper. Vale started this season like they finished last season.
2-1 victory. Jay double.
Attendance: 7 - with no-one quite sure who the 7 are, or how they got there.
Hoping we carry last weekend's euphoria into this match. Bradford are a good side and I expect them to go up this year. Their main man who makes them tick is Pritchard, much like Law is for us. He's been injured but is expected to be fit again for this weekend.
I'm going for 2-2 draw. Law and L...
So it's been a bad week with lots of travelling, conceding 7, scoring only 1, and it appears our reserve keeper might not be as good as we initially thought! We've been as shocking as I can remember for a long time.
Argyle, on the other hand, have come in to some form, winning comfortably in...
A week tomorrow.
I'm going for a poor game and a 1-0 victory.
Bowman with the goal.
The more I look at our squad the more pessimistic I feel. I'm starting to think we may struggle. Seriously hope I'm wrong.
