Probably our biggest game of the season. Colchester woth no wins for October means we are bound to lose this. If we do we are down in my eyes, siply must win this one and again on Saturday if we are to give ourselves a chance.
I fear we may not win but if we can't beat this lot we deserve to go down. Fair play to the 200 or so crazy bastards that will make the trip too. Must be bonkers.

Fuck knows we'll go from here if we lose this one. Other than League Two that is.

It's impossible to predict a win for us. We seem incapable of threatening the opposition's goal and are so desperate we're trying to sign Jordan Fucking Slew.

I'm sure he played against us for you at our place and he was appalling.

Any positives at all?

Thought he'd left by then after randomly kicking out at a Fleetwood player leaving us with ten men and the inevitable late 1-0 defeat. That was N'Guessan at yours.

Adams loved Slew but wasn't very good at all!

Ah, yes I recall an overweight black guy who was once well thought of.

He once went for over a million so he must have had something even if it's now left him. Looking at the dates it seems Danny Wilson sold him very early on in his time at Sheffield United.

I am more intrigued about the crowd than the game tonight. When the tickets for the Tottenham FA Cup game went on general sale, they made you buy a ticket for tonight's game at the same time with no refunds. On the ticket site, it seems that there's over 6,000 tickets sold, but we usually only get about 2,500 on a Tuesday night these days and there's been a lot of tickets being advertised all over Facebook and so on.

Firstly I'm interested in seeing what the crowd ends up being, and then I'm more intrigued as to what they will announce. Will they announce a 6,000 crowd when everyone can tell it's about half of that? Will they just announce who turns up?

More interesting than the football, for sure. Going to be bloody freezing too, which might put off any undecided Spurs fans who were thinking of making use of their ticket.

They'll announce how many tickets have been sold. Same as non attending ST holders.

Pleasantly surprising, but the crowd was actually good. Announced as over 6,000 and, to be fair, probably about right - looked decent.

As for the game, 80 minutes against ten men, camped in the opposition half for a lot of it and yet we never really looked like scoring to be honest. Much better with Drey Wright on, and as soon as Bonne was moved off the wing into his natural central position he went and scored. For three minutes we dared to dream, to believe in the impossible but, alas, a penalty three minutes later and we were back on level terms.

I'm not sure if we will win another game in my lifetime.

Just seen the red card. What sort of c*** is the referee? Fucking scandalous decision. Wasn't even a foul.
