Just seen that Dartford are due to go to Torquay on the Saturday. So even with a good journey back, those players won't be walking into their homes until 11pm that night with another game on the Monday lunchtime.

Wouldn't be surprised if Woking vs Grimsby was chosen on 7th March.

Absolutely surprised (NOT) that we still haven't been picked for ANY live BT games. it's nice to know there are 24 teams in this league, not just a select 3 or 4.

Hey Adam. Bit Off topic but hows the pitch looking for tomorrow? I see murmurs on your forum the game could be in doubt if you get the forecast rain?

True as ever. I think pitch is ok at the mo, the rain has held off with the odd drizzle although forecast to rain here until early morning tomorrow. Its held off so far but any more moisture in the air will sure to get it postponed.

With the exception of the Macc v Rovers game what a shockingly uninspiring set of fixtures.

It's almost like they want no one to watch so they have an excuse to cancel the contract.

Also, what the hell is the obsession with Barnet? Completely understand the Bristol Rovers one and if they also obsessed with showing Wrexham and Grimsby it would make sense, as they are big for this level.

Barnet aren't - they don't have a big following and sod all people want to watch them, just don't get it.

The odd one out is, as some have said, the Braintree match. The others all have something going for them - either title challengers, play off hopefuls or relegation threatened sides.

edit - the Braintree match could also be considered as such, as Telford are in deep trouble, but it's certainly the most unappealing one.

No, but Luton were and Cambridge were there or there abouts. Even Braintree were still fighting on the play off front when they played us. Factor in the Davids show for the first two and we were always going to be on their radar. Edgar Davids won the Champions League... Live TV game.

Trust me, I'd rather they were showing you rather than us.

Nah fair enough, it's nothing against you as a club - just had to get on my soapbox :)

No, seriously, be on that Monday!

Although as someone pointed out on our board, our record for live BT games when playing away to teams, that begin with the letter D, in Kent, midweek, is 100% this season. Nailed on!

Because it's not representative of the whole league if Barnet, Brizzle and Grimsby etc always get on. One thing you usually get with our games is goals.
Indeed we are one of the highest scorers in the division and still BT aren't interested it would seem, very odd.
Not that you get a deal from being on, you think after them covering the conference for nearly two seasons we would of been picked once.

To be fair, with the possible exception of Brizzle Rovers, Grimsby and Wrecsam, nobody in the division has a particularly large following. The main interest for most of these games is from fans of other Conference teams, I can't see too many people who follow a Premier League or Championship team tuning in to watch a Vanarama game.

I'm hearing Braintree-Telford might rival the London 2012 Opening Ceremony viewing figures worldwide.

To be fair the 3 games we've been on so far have been: 3-0, 2-3 & 1-3 so they've had their goals.

I will be going to Dartford so again this is just a pain in balls.

Good work, you are probably grinding down their resistance until they can no longer withstand the lure of non-league football. I am also working on an Evertonian, she will come to the occasional game quite willingly, but there is some way to go yet.

Bit late if it is us, tickets go on sale today and everyone's under the impression it's on Sat 7th March at 1pm. I hope it isn't to be honest.

Apologies: Due to urgent discussions going on with FA, BBC Sport and BT Sport we have been asked to delay announcing TV game at 11am.

Grimsby tweeted that their away game at Woking would be televised but this was quickly removed.
