Who gives a fuck.

Hart/Halsall in charge. We're a joke.

Team? Don't care but we're without Carroll and McCourt so 40 year old GK coach Kevin Pilkington will be between the sticks and Spencer isn't fit enough to start - Dumbuya, McKenzie and C. Thompson all injured likely.

Pilkington
Mullins Edwards Hollis Adams
JCR Jones Noble Hayhurst
Thompson Lita

Relegate us.

What's with all the negativity. Look on the bright side, at least you're not Mansfield.

RB you know your setting us up to win this game and then the to aforementioned people will be "considered"
I went 1-0 in the prediction league. I am standing by that.

A 1-0 win and NCM proclaiming Hart our king with genuine hopes of making the playoffs

Pilkington is pure class anyway.
That was his last game I think. His age doesn't really matter because he's probably in better shape than half the keepers in the lower leagues. He runs tough mudder races every fortnight it seems like...bigger problem is even in his 'prime' for us he was only a solid League 2 keeper. Good shot-stopper that flaps at crosses.

It just goes to show how shite Spiess is. He's 21 and I'm not sure he's any better than he was when he was 17 and all the big clubs were looking at him. He seems to moan a lot about not getting chances but he had his chance in pre-season and was fucking woeful, that's really the only reason we went out and got Carroll, because he didn't take his chance.

Not sure I even want to look at the scores Saturday. We are basically down. We will be fucking woeful.

I look at Tranmere and think, that could be us next year. We are run like a shit show from top to bottom. I have no confidence Hart will keep us up. The players will do as they did for Kiwomya and just refuse to play.

The atmosphere is gonna be awful, final whistle another home loss, could be first Trew out calls

Nah, at the very least we'd have (barring injuries and having to sell anyone, obv) Spencer, who would be probably the best striker in that league, his sidekick Murray, Curtis Thompson, Liam Noble, Hollis, who would look like Beckenbauer, Blair Adams... I think we'd be fine.

Plus, it is a shite division. Looks at some of the regular starters for the top teams. Lucas Akins! John Mousinho! Adam McGurk! Nico Yennaris! Paul Hayes! Even Joss Labadie was a regular before he bit someone again.

Is Leroy Lita shit now then?

Massive game this really.

No offense Scunthorpe, as your pies this season were splendid, but I'd rather you went down than Notts County - we'd be missing a belting awayday from the calendar.

To be fair every punter has a tough mudder t-shirt nowadays

He's doing 7 or something for charity, followed him on Strava too and he's always running or cycling.

You're right though, I'm a fat lazy shit who can't get through a 5 a side game and I've finished one.

Can we cancel the game?

We're gonna get smashed.
No-one reckons they'll win this, it seems. Normally I'd say let's shake hands on a draw, but we could really do with the points.

I fear this may have a Paddy Madden 10th min goal followed by much pathetic huffing and puffing from us written all over it. Unless JCR and Spencer are fit, in which case i'll go 1-0 us.

Mate we've had 1 shot on target in this last two games (which we did actually score), we're so bad going forward now. Van Veen looked our only threat against Rochdale and Robins being himself decided to drop him. Robins' reluctance to play 4-4-2 is massively costing us.

I don't think he will, but then again I thought he was being stupid when he said he'd be in the squad in 2 weeks and he was. If it's a question of actual fitness then it'd be silly I think, as big as the game is, if it's a question of just match fitness/sharpness then he has to play because even if he's a bit rusty he's still considerably better than Thompson, Lita and Bajner.

I think you have to give him a partner though, starting him straight away as a lone striker would be brutal.

Notts County 4-1 Scunthorpe

Theo Robinson will score a 89th minute consolation goal and our fans will brownose him weeks.

I'll go for 2-1 Notts myself, Paddy putting us in front with Notts scoring in the 87th and 89th Minute.

BD, that sounds like the Facebook page..

Jimmy to come off the bench and score the winner. Meadow Lane to be literally torn down with the outpouring of joy from the 4,000 people there. Paul Hart to become a late addition to the statue.

It's one of the great mysteries of life - how he was no good for you lot. Or anyone else.

Fair result but no real use to anyone, two very bad teams. Whoever comes in has to have the balls to drop Dad's Army, they're killing us.
