The match of the season, so far. Bring it on.

Today's win takes the pressure off for next week. Win and we are laughing, lose and we are one point behind with a game in hand.

Massive game for MK though, Robinson's comments such as 'it doesn't matter if we drop points against Scunthorpe because we've got Bristol City to play', Well come on Karl, lets see what your team has cos it sounds like you need the three points.

With almost a week to recover, my team would be:

Fielding
Ayling Flint Williams
Little K Smith Elliott Bryan
Freeman
Smith JET​

Freeman and JET have massive roles to play. They both need to drop in whilst MK undoubtedly dominate possession but need to be a threat on the counter too, with JET required to play the Agard role and assist Smith.

5000 City fans hopefully in party mood, we won't lose. Mainly because for all their attacking prowess, MK definitely have defensive errors in them.

Yeah, no point in changing from the team that has been largely sucessful so far so there should be no surprises from us.

This may surprise you CS but I agree with every single word of your post! :D
I understand McFazdean is suspended for MK and he's their main aerial threat / defender. Smith and Flint must be licking their lips for this one. I have no idea who their replacement defender will be but I reckon our power in the air could cause them a few problems. Maybe SA or one of the other MK lot could let us know?
Anyone not going to this needs to take a long hard look at themselves as it's the most important game of the season.

I have a competition Saturday, being captain I can't really miss it and last year being a student so want to be involved with as many as possible.

Got mine today, in the Top Tier.

Have they been selling the Top Tier tickets first? If so, how many can you sell in the Top Tier before they start selling tickets in the Lower Tier?

Ah Arny, never knowingly understated anything.

Our allocation so far is 3800 and there's 400 left.

I guess we are keeping you behind the goal before opening the corners. Can't remember how many Coventry brought to us, but we did the same thing for them. I imagine they're selling it as 1 block lower, then 1 block upper. Although you can make a lot more noise in the upper tier due to being closer to the roof. Sometimes it helps kill the songs being split between two tiers.

Don't worry about not getting a ticket, this is the maximum allocation we can give you.

Spence will play in the Center of defence for us, his preferred position Tbh and no real impact on us.

Yep, push Smith on to him from the first whistle!
Well if he hasn't gotten any better this could get interesting....

Indian Dan I'd have thought a City win would have been more beneficial for you anyway? Yes we stretch a bit but you could go back into 2nd place and then have to play us later in the season where you can try and close the gap?

Depends if we want to compete with 2 clubs for 2 places or 1 club for one place.

They'll be plenty more twists and turns to come.

However it turns out for any of us, it's got to be better than supporting Aston Villa -Christ on a bike, they are fucking dire

I can't go either due to family commitments, slightly gutted but I'll be able to listen on the radio at least.

I'd say MK probably need the win more than us, so a draw would be huge imo... And the win massive. However, got a feeling we will lose.

Would be a huge boost for our promotion campaign if we can pull off a win here! Doubt we'll get anything though, always make silly mistakes when the big games happen.

Even me? :D

Cant really say anymore about this game than whats been said already. Vital for both teams. Think most city fans would take a draw if offered, but not me! This team is capable of winning there.
