Club have announced that the buses are running from the bus station to the ground at 10:45 and 11:45 Saturday. Not sure on heading back
Thanks for this, we’ll probably walk it from our hotel but this is good to know!

BIG GAME!

Still can't believe we've got to this stage given where we were in mid-January. These are the games this season that we don't fair too well in (the opposite to last season) - we're fine against mid to lower sides but when we play the better sides we're not as fluid or good and it's in these games that we'll miss having a proper midfield as well.

Portsmouth - 0 points (1 game)
Derby - 2 points
Bolton - 0 points
Posh - 1 point
Barnsley - 4 points
Oxford - 3 points
Blackpool - 3 points
Stevenage - 1 point

Our XI picks itself really. I think we're hoping to having Hackett and Bishop back but the former's shoulder popped out at Oxford and you'd imagine that even a minor dislocation is longer than 2 weeks out.

This one was well on the way to being sold out before we started really having a sniff of the PO's, so no surprise it sold out a while ago.

Reeco looks to be missing out which I'm sure he's gutted about and certainly weakens us. Bishop touch and go. Whispers Tyler Walker may be in contention, he won't be anywhere near match fit as he hasn't featured since September but he's a much needed body. Was listening to John Mousinho who was saying he's a squad of 24 to choose from! FFS

We’ve enlarged our squad throughout the season after a crippling injury list including multiple players out for the season at the turn of the year. Now the majority of the injured players are back fit so we’ve got a big pool to pick from.

Assumed some will be making their final appearances and expected to see several changes from the starting XI of the past few months.

Surprising on social media there's a few spares going around (but quickly snapped up). I haven't got one but will watch in the box.

Am I the only one who think it's mental Sky are showing the Derby game? They need a point against the worst team in the league (and maybe not even that) to guarantee promotion. Yet you've got a really exciting playoff battle and relegation battle.

They're just so bloody predictable aren't they?

Nothing game away at Wycombe. Should be a good day out with a sold out away end. No doubt another draw which will equal our longest ever unbeaten run, which feels like something to get excited about but at the same time really doesn't. Credit to Nathan Jones though, to come in and do that for a side that was so easy to walkover takes some doing

No you’re not the only one, our game v Pompey or one of the other games with something to play for would surely be better viewing? However this is Sky so logic and reasoning goes completely out of the window. If we were Wrexham, Salford or FGR we would be nailed on to be featured.

I take your point but we've only been on Sky once this year, Mansfield have been on at least 3 times.

BBC are much worse for it but again that is exaggerated by the fact that we have S4C, the Welsh channel, who only have 4 to choose from.

Our three games on television this season made sense other than the Colchester one which was bizarre.

Am I watching us, Cheltenham or Burton this weekend?

Bricking this, purely on the basis of equal and opposite reactions after last year. And a dodgy lasagna for our centre backs.


If we go down, we'll have not been in the relegation all season AND missed a string of opportunities to get safe. Praying we don't go full Bristol Rovers and spend only the final 10 minutes of the season in the drop zone!
Don't you want to resurrect the CUFC league in League Two next season?

No chance our lot will get the job done, weak as piss the majority of them, so we'll be in the hands of others. I have a decent amount of belief in Fleetwood for a team already down, and it seems like the Cambridge fan managing Stevenage is going full strength and will hopefully have them up for it, so I'm mildly confident one of them will go our way, but the insurance bet is on just in case....

I've been a wreck since Tuesday evening when we beat Peterborough. I think I was ready for relegation before then, but not now.

Really, the pressue isn't on us, it's completely out of our hands, but it doesn't make it any easier.

Its quite nice to go tomorrow all chilled with no outcome on it for us, that was the issue when we beat Burton and Bristol Rovers we got the hope and it gregs it back up again.

Sounds like we are going to try and play full pelt (not that we actually have more of a full pelt) to respect the league integrity now Cambridge have something to play for according to Garrity.

Yes I think I'd rather watch one of the relegation games, like Stevenage v Cheltenham.
But Sky would rather be in a happy place at a big ground I guess rather than showing miserable relegated fans.
I'll be at our game anyway.

Shame Peterborough didn’t think the same on Tuesday

If you think you're weak as piss, wait until you see us! Couldn't fight their way out of a soap bubble. I'd be amazed if we aren't just leisurely strolling around and there'll be a few playing who know they'll be on their way out. In a kind of irony, I actually feel like we've looked better than a lot of the teams around us in general play, we're just pathetic in defence and have a choice between the angry trampoline Ikpeazu and the worst professional footballer in all the leagues in Loft up front. No wonder we got relegated!

Yep. They reserved, to quote their manager, 'the best performance of the season ' against us. It seems a few teams like to do that. I can't work out whether it's because we're so shit or we just play teams on a week where they are flying.

One of our blog sites has done an article today saying that since the PO's were introduced, out of the 36 seasons, we've been involved in a last day scrap for them on 11 occasions, which seems quite high to me (didn't think it was that many either)?!

Think there's something in that, we had that last year. Completely resigned to it but without the final nail ever quite going in. keeping alive but never having it in your hands until suddenly it's the last day.

Feel a lot worse about tomorrow than I did last year, even though, objectively that's mental.

Swear down, if Vale turn up tomorrow and fight their way out of a soap bubble, half of this messageboard are going to have questions to answer!

Think you're alright actually!

Are we still reigning champions? Guess the last CUFC League was the year we went up, so maybe? Although I think you still have a few games in hand still to play, so who knows!

Some of these predictions make me laugh.
No one has a clue - it’s the last day and strange things happen.
Leeds got dicked 4-0 last night..anyone predict that ?
