Just put a quid on us at 5-1. I know I've gone full turtle, but ask yourselves this:

1)If we were third and at home to the worst team on current form, we would probably be bricking ourselves, how many times has that happened to us in the past?

2) We just have to win, the players know they have talent somewhere and will be dying to stick two fingers up to the naysayers. And being away, they will feel less pressure

3) I don't think I could cope with another loss.


270 is dreadful for a Saturday so near London, really surprised by this (but also delighted as it means that even less will go to Cambridge and Reading and we'll be able to choose to sit where we want......)

I agree with point 1 and point 3

My issue with point 2 isnt about "do the players have the ability" as we know that most arent actually good enough. For me its more about "do the players actually care". I mean really care. Does Rankine risk breaking his leg, fracturing his skull for the cause? Does Trevitt? Scott? I think that Kite would fly into a 50/50 like a Cronin or a Dunne would or a Todd but he might be the only one and thats why he'd be the first name on my teamsheet in a defensive midfield position. Hartridge maybe would have beforehand but I would think he'll be delighted to get his summer move now and doesnt want to scupper that with a leg in plaster

And some of you will tell me "football isnt like that anymore" so look at it another way. Physically, in terms of running and effort, are all 10 outfield players really convincing you that they are going out of their way to run harder than they ever have before. You dont get in a Pep side or a Klopp side if you dont work hard on and off the ball.....

This is from the EFL stats this week.

Bit of a contrast between the first two facts and the last two 😆

This is exactly the kind of record that will be halted tomorrow.

At least if you are I trust for your sake it won’t be in a Stroud pub.
