After three glasses of Albarino, trying to make sense of tonight is impossible, except to reiterate what people have said about the collective togetherness of the team and the way that the manager (er!) manages them. Overall it was a very nervy performance, but one that lifts a load from the team in view of who they're playing in the last two games. I thought Barrow were hard to break down, without looking very much like they were going to create scoring chances, and City were just...nervous. Personally though that Stubbs or Collins would have been man of the match for me. Interesting article in the Sheffield Star about Cam Dawson which suggests he probably wont be with us next season, pity! Finally, before I finish the bottle I'd like to refer to the thread about season ticket prices; if we're going to sustain our challenge or position in League One we're going to have to do some heavy recruiting to enlarge the squad and this implies spending money on wages. I trust the manager to recruit the right players, but he'll need the money to do it.
Unfortunately this post gives no real indication of how much I've enjoyed this season.

No I know how to do weather forecasts - drink more Albarino !
Well done David for all your "sober" forecasting over the season - can I buy you an Albarino in the FECRACE v Port Vale ?

Just a fantastic set of players. Have to say, echo what Jay said - the recruitment has been very good. And Matt Taylor’s constant talk of the right character - it’s finally come together. They clearly have fun a squad but are also all driven and professional - like the best bits of the Conference promotion winners mixed with that high water mark of 10/11.

This time we seem much more organised and ready for the step up - going to love watching us get some big boy scalps next year 🔥

They thought it was a foul throw
No, it was because the throw should have gone their way. It was an obvious mistake by the linesman on the Stagecoach Stand side who looked uncertain of his decision making all evening. At every opportunity he looked to the ref to make the decision. When forced on this occasion to make a call he got it wrong and City scored.
But do I care...no.
