Think we'll lose tomorrow 3-1, Reeves will score and send our forum into meltdown who have been obsessed with him for a few seasons

Our game has bar Welling probably the two most out of form teams. Both of us have failed to win in our last 7. So it's set up for a boring 0-0 or 1-1

Going to do an acca of Grimsby, Eastleigh, FGR and Alty tomorrow. 18/1 at Bet365.

Eastleigh will pummel us. Absolutely pummel us. Akinde will score as usual, and we'll lose 3-1 as usual. I'd like to say I wish I was able to go to this one, but for the first time this season I think I'm a little bit glad. No desire to travel to watch this brand of shit football, fronted by the scrote that is Martin Allen and played by players bereft of confidence, any more.

Macc, Grimsby and Rovers fans - confident?

Never confident about us either tbh, although given our form this year I should be. In the past we've so often followed up a big win with a poor performance that you start expecting it,

Braintree have usually been a tough nut for us to crack, so scoring early will be a big help. With several of the teams around us playing each other, 3 points are vital. At least with The Beast in the side, we've got a virtually guaranteed goal scorer every week, we just need to create the chances. Hopefully Fleetwood can get off the mark too, his performances deserve it and you can see how much he wants it.

So you are going to spend your Saturday afternoon hoping that your team loses in a crucial league game?
I just don't understand you at all, even if GTFC were doing absolutely shit i could never bet against us and spend Saturday hoping we would lose!!!

Setting off to Princes Park soon. Looking forward to today for perhaps the first time this season going in to a game with a little of confidence. Wether thats blind confidence and ill founded is yet to be seen but I fancy us to come away with at least a point today.

Bradley Wood has tweeted to say he is fit and able to play so its up to Nicky now as to whether he wants to use him.

As always it depends on how we defend. We looked solid against Kidderminster but with their recent goal drought that is not a surprise and we looked fairly secure at Telford bar one huge miss by Sam Smith at the death.

John Johnston has also been passed fit after picking up a knock v Kiddy which is a huge boost.

Well if I said that I hope Barnet lose you'd have a point. Of course I don't hope we lose; I expect it, but don't hope for it, of course not.

It seems that as usual, people are trying their hardest to make me look like a bad fan. Getting a bit boring now.

Hopefully we'll turn Southport over today and rubber-stamp safety. Game of the day for me is Alfreton v Dartford. So much riding on that.

Our game against Grimsby must be a massive away banker, but It really depends which team turns up. If the one that went to Torquay and won 1-0 does then we're in with an outside chance of something.

Braintree are the arch party spoilers, not at all confident about today. Might have to settle for a continuation of the unbeaten run.

I'd be confident if their pitch wasnt sunday league standard. Anything can happen now I'm afraid

So you are not hoping you will lose?
So why put it in an acca?
So you are saying you are happy to chuck money away because really, you hope you will not lose?
You are making no sense whatsoever, before i just had you down as a pessimist, but sticking your own team to lose in an acca just stinks to me.
Anyway here is a question to you then, if the other 3 in your acca are winning and Barnet drawing and Eastleigh get a pen in the last minute do you want them to score or not? (serious question).
Because as i expect you to answer 'no' then why put the acca on in the first place?
And if the answer is 'yes' then you really are that 'bad fan' that you talk about.

I bet against my team If I think there's value in the away side, I only check my bets at full time and if we lose and I check my bet and it's won then happy days I win money If Rovers win which means my bet is over even happier days

Exactly what TheGas said, there is value in Eastleigh. I would much rather Barnet win, however there is extreme value in Eastleigh getting the result and it's looking very likely that they will do, so I'll include them in my acca (which I've not even put on yet, btw, so don't make assumptions).

I don't understand why you're so insulted by this anyway. It's a win win situation - if the likely happens and they lose, I win some money, if they win then happy days we've won a crucial match! But why does it matter to you?

Another question: I may be a pessimist, but I've been 100% correct so far. I think it means that I've got quite a good handle on my team. Are you still a pessimist if you're right?

Any advice on where to drink between Southampton Airport Parkway & the Eastleigh ground?

Can we definitely drink in the social bar if the game is segregated?

They don't normally segregate so you can probably drink in the bar. If not, the Concorde Club is 5 mins walk up the road from the Stadium and the Cricketers Arms is 15.

I don't exactly ' cheer ' the teams I've bet on anyway. As I said I'll look at full time if I've won because of Rovers losing then so be it. i'd rather rovers lose and I win money then Rovers lose and win nothing :£ the point in betting is pick teams you think will win and if I think rovers will lose I'll back the other team

Whild and Creighton have been publicly vocal with criticism of some of our senior players and have suggested in the local press that some youngsters may get handed starts today. We currently have 6 academy graduates available for selection (2 of which have featured once in the league so far) as well as some other youngsters brought in from smaller local sides in January, so there might be quite a few changes to the starting line up today. I'd like to see one of the young strikers given a start alongside Hughes - they can't do much worse than Danny Wright.

Reeves will score today, that's the only certainty. Just a question of how much money I'm going to put on it.

Must be horrible for you. A boring mid table end of the season is horrible. Probably even worse in non league. Suppose a mid table finish might not be bad for you in the long term. A bit of stability is always a good thing

Huge weekend, out of the top 4 we arguably have the 'easiest' game. Of course no game is easy, but Rovers Barnet and Macc have tough tough games. Sounds like there's a huge following going across for it, I wish I was one of them!
