Thread starter #1
Aldershot v Bromley
Barrow v Welling
Cheltenham v Eastleigh
Chester v Halifax
Dover v Macclesfield
Forest Green v Tranmere
Gateshead v Altrincham
Guiseley v Boreham
Kidderminster v Southport
Lincoln v Braintree
Torquay v Grimsby
Woking v Wrexham

Big big game down at Aggborough tomorrow, think it's curtains for Kiddy if they can't beat Southport. Can Eastleigh do an improbable treble in the space of week after beating Tranmere and FGR by winning at Cheltenham?
I'm off to the New Lawn where I'm fully expecting an injury ravaged Tranmere team to get beat by the best team in the league. Any decent Ale Houses in Nailsworth?

No idea how we're going to line-up in midfield.

Sparrow (ankle), Stanley (hamstring) and Wood (suspension) unavailable. That leaves us with Tempest, who's played about 15 minutes this season, Everington who's 19 and Alan Power who I'd rather not have in CM and in his stronger position further up the field. We've not really got any good options.

Unless, of course, we have someone lined up, which is needed.

I'm expecting a tough battle against Borehamwood. Praying we can continue to score goals following the Wrexham game as we are doubtless going to concede!

Elliot Hodge maybe????
Totally agree we are very short in midfield.

Expecting either a draw or heavy win tomorrow. A loss puts us back under pressure again. As long as Bogle and Amond play, we'll be fine.

Away at Boston tommorrow for us. Think it will be a tight affair. Probably a draw. The most important thing IMO though is a clean sheet to give us some belief record for Macc.

Hopefully Wrexham are the usual Mills team to visit Kingfield and try to play out from the back which leads to some comical mistakes, misplaced passes out of play and a comfortable home win.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but it appears our club has now gone totally vegan, which means no more cow's milk for tea or coffee. I apologise in advance to all of you who travel long distances to the West Country in the reasonable expectation of a hot drink to warm you up on a cold afternoon on the terraces, but you will have to bring your own if you don't like soya or oat milk.

Also going to Forest Green. Also expecting us to get thumped. And I'm perfectly used to soya milk but I'll stick to pre-match alcoholic beverages instead cheers!

Well at ecotricity you're not aloud to bring your own milk into work, have to use the milk which is organic and vegan -_- so not surprised by this.

Excellent idea! Well done to FGR and Vince for taking such necessary steps in order to eradicate needless suffering and also contribute to a better world for future generations.

It's not all about the football you know? After all this game we all love so much is just 22 men chasing a ball.

I hope FGR do indeed win promotion to the FL, as the league could do with progressive thinking such as this and with the general ethos practiced at FGR :bow:

In Nailsworth The Britannia is pretty good, as is the Village Inn. Egypt Mill is posher but is also pleasant.

If your coming via Stroud then The Ale House is decent, and en-route from there you also have The Clothiers and The Fleece which are good pubs as well.

Of course you'll be more then welcome in The Green Man which is on site and is open to both sets of fans.

I also think our dictatorial food policy is well OTT. People will now be bringing their own milk, just like some already bring their own meat based snacks. Shouldn't have to do it though, the club should be fair and provide options for everyone. Most of us aren't veggie, let alone vegan

Eastleigh appear to be bringing big numbers to Whaddon Road on Saturday, they've got 8 seats left on their 5th coach according to their forum. Although it does say that the 4th is a 33 seater.

I don't care how many they bring, we're playing a team who have beat both Tranmere and FGR in the past week so this is going to be far from easy. A real test of our Championship credentials. I just pray we don't concede another last minute goal (3 in our last 5 games).

Wonder what the odds are on Norwood scoring, getting sent off, or both in Saturday's reunion at the New Lawn.

Hope to avoid any sort of backlash from Halifax tomorrow, I do at least feel a bit more confident with some players returning for us though. Mahon came back as a sub on Tuesday night and looked excellent, back to his good old self. We've also got Luke George available again and James Roberts is back from compassionate leave.

Given how Burr likes his sides to play, I'd be amazed, given Halifax's defensive record i.e. averaging around 3 goals conceded a game, if you don't score at least two.

We put one past them in August, mind you we weren't scoring then whilst now we're doing it for fun, throughout the team too. Scored 21 goals this season, twelve different goalscorers!
