A full house of home wins would do me.

Slightly concerned that, having failed with others, Woking fans are now trying to fabricate some sort of rivalry with Lincoln on here.

Anyway, no Hearn for us. He's injured but aside from that, "...there are some complex issues there that nobody can solve apart from Liam." I think he's trying his best to delay activating an appearance clause he apparently has in his deal, which would trigger another year here.

Just engaging in the usual bantz.

I forgot posters aren't allowed to make jokes on this forum. Instead, it's seemingly fine to call others a 'retard' (CrazyImp, 2015).

Where are the funnys?... I'm mildly disappointed.

Anyway you've all been dying to know who we are playing - we're visiting Beaconsfield SYCOB. They've been in some financial issues recently and apparently players haven't received money that was due before christmas and have started jumping ship.

Beaconsfield are 9th, but in poor form having not beaten a side outside the bottom 6 since December 1st. Apparently their young striker Callum Bunting has had trials with Crewe and Scunthorpe this season, though he doesn't feature on the league top goalscorers list (which is a generous 25 names long!). We both have 3 players on there, though that includes Tommy Berwick for us who has left the club for personal reasons. Not sure who has left them and if it is anyone on that list.

We're hoping we can get another 3 points to maintain our lead at the top of the table. The abandoned game situation is now completely over so we have the point added on for that draw, and sit top by 2 points having played 26 (54 points). n.b Egham could theoretically reduce the lead to 1pt if they won both games in hand, nobody can go above us until we drop points.

We've recently picked up our goal scoring rate, and are hopeful we can continue. Chief among that will be Jon Stevenson who has started well with 2 in 2 games, I wonder how many he can get through before he plays a game without scoring - hopefully a lot!

Nothing less than a win will do tomorrow. I think both FGR and Grimsby will win their games.

We are at home again tomorrow to our old friends Nuneaton Town. Nuneaton are in poor form and have recently lost a few of their better players to Peterborough. Wouldnt mind a measure of revenge for a heavy league defeat earlier in the season and the fact they have knocked out of the trophy twice in the last four years including this season. Hopeful of making it 6 wins in a row and 8 unbeaten.

Looking for revenge after Macclesfield somehow managed to get lucky and thrash us at Moss Rose in September.

Wont be many goals, but reckon we'll sneak it, with The Beast adding to his tally against one of his ex clubs, although unlikely he'll score as good a goal as in the same fixture last season.


The club will be holding a public exhibition before tomorrow's game at The New Lawn to showcase plans for the new Eco Park development, including all the plans, scale model etc.

Amazingly we have the chance to perform a double over Aldershot this weekend. Aldershot are also the last team we beat away over a year ago now. So this game is set up to be a 2-0 Aldershot win.

We're playing the forum's new most hated team, Woking.
They were crap at our place, we're pretty crap in general - chairman anticipating three wins in a row, I'm guessing a comfortable win for Woking on Saturday. No new signings and a weak back line, so can't see it going any other way.

You are the only bottom half team we have lost to all season, but we broke our rule by beating Macclesfield last week so im just hoping we dont try and balance the books by giving you 3 points.

Tomorrow is a really good chance to make it our 3rd league win in a row and build some momentum - not too much for us to play for but a top half finish would represent progress over last season!

Not really sure what to expect from us tomorrow after the midweek defeat at Altrincham. Unless we sign anyone in the next few hours, we only have 15 players to pick from (14 if Bruno Andrade hasn't recovered from his injury at Alty), so once again we'll be sticking one or two of the Academy kids on the bench to make up the numbers. Our season so far has been ridiculously streaky: 20 points from our first ten games, 5 points from our second ten games, and 23 points from our last ten games (before Tuesday night's defeat). It's quite possible we're about to start another bad run. Either way, we definitely need some reinforcements.

I think there's a wave of confidence at Chester this week after a couple of strikers signing and Lloyd (Port Vale) here til the end of the season and flop Sharps more than adequately replaced by Astles. We won there last season, so I see no reason why we can't get something (if it's on).

Only lost twice in our last 15 games against Gateshead and we seem to always enjoy facing them. We need a win to keep up our chase.

Haven't seen Rovers win at home in four months. Missing the next trio of home games, so hoping to sign off with a victory over Torquay, but not confident.

Southport P-P Boreham Wood. Waterlogged pitch. Might end up going to watch something even more crap like Ossett Town v Clitheroe or Halifax very Welling instead.
