Just over 24 hours ago (half-time yesterday) I was fully accepting that it would come down to the final game! Our result and this one today have been massive for us.You'd like to think so, it could go from feeling like it was going to the wire last weekend to it nearly being all over on Monday night.
For our game I’d take a draw. We’re on a really good run of results but surely Tranmere (a) is a stretch too far, especially with The Magician likely to be rested. Tranmere will be going all out for the win after Friday’s result and I’m not sure we’ll be able to hold them.
I’ve only visited Prenton Park once, in Tranmere’s relegation season to the Conference on a Friday night just before Christmas. It was our first season back and it was a dreadful game but we came away with a 1-1 draw courtesy of a late Michael Nelson header from a corner in front of the away end.
I remember walking back to the car after the game with my wife and a kid (about 12 or so) said “Cambridge bollocks” as we crossed. My wife was all up for correcting the kid’s grammar before I told her to keep her mouth shut.
That was a good weekend all round actually as we stayed up there and drove across to Derby the next day to see Norwich (wife’s team) at Pride Park. Again it was a late equaliser in front of the away fans, this time 2-2. Ah the days of away trips. :-(
Anyway I’d take a draw but suspect we will lose.
I think she was going to suggest a verb might have made the sentence make sense.... I told her just not to worry about it.
I’m pleased for Lewis. I always felt he was a hardworking honest player but he was playing in a crap team so we never really saw the best of him. Would I have him back? No, because we’ve got a good midfield now and he wouldn’t fit in but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be good elsewhere.Our underrated first choice goalkeeper/captain is out with a long term injury and since Vaughan has been out injured, we’ve lacked a cutting edge. Keith Hill insists on giving game time to our January signings who have yet to come good, ahead of the explosive but inconsistent Blackett Taylor.
Good to see Paul Mullin doing so well for you this season. If only we’d of kept him . Paul Lewis has done a great job for us this season which has suprised me , was expecting him to be just a squad player for us having barely featured for you.
No problemBig big game Newport away ...If we win i also want Cambridge to win
Draw i want Err Cambridge to win
f we lose i think i want Cambridge to win
Labadie picked up his 10th yellow on friday so will be suspended for this one, personally i hope he never plays for us again he's a bloody liability.No problem
As Newport are back playing on the rugby pitch, hopefully some of the Horwich superstars will pick up niggles and knocks. Plus Joss Labadie re-paying his old club with an Oscar nominated performance of rolling around screaming in agony at the slightest touch to get a few of the visitors red-carded. Ideally Trevor Kettle a late replacement as referee...
remember - some Conference refs are worse (in the shit sense not the bent sense).... be careful what you wish forI just don’t care any more, I’m sure come tomorrow I will care again and I’ll be rooting for us but that Salford result given how we were completely robbed of 2 points has just left me pretty numb to football at the minute, I think I’d rather we’d just played shit and lost than to be shafted by an obviously bent referee.
