I'd just tone it down a little bit - about how great Bolton are - because otherwise IF things go wrong you might end up like OneDecentLester and vanish from the forum for months out of embarrassment.

Tbf to masi51 Bolton are 19th more then halfway through the season and he's still here bigging them up. Many would have flounced a lot sooner.

In terms of call offs, it's not just down here that clubs can't get a game on today. Quite a few bigger clubs like Sheff Wed, Rotherham and Blackpool are off today as well.

Inspection at 1pm for our game. 50/50 chance apparently.

The Sheffield Wednesday postponement is surprising. It is unusual for a ground that used to host FA Cup semi finals not to have undersoil heating.

Mansfield are as well, so they also pushed that one back to Wednesday.
Exactly. I'm sure Newport wouldnt have objected to our game being moved back to Wednesday

Then we could of played Newport tomorrow but it’s been put back to March 16th now, guess long travel arrangements in our case made that unworkable I don’t know.

Not a big deal for us as it’s the first postponement I guess.

Mansfield to Colchester is further than Newport to Stoke - I see Lincoln v Accrington has been moved to tomorrow too which is about the same distance.

I'm finding these calls for the season to be extended embarrassing. It's bad enough listening to that crybaby Klopp going on about fixture congestion all the time. Chris Beechs take on it as been refreshing in the soft modern football world, basically saying there's nothing to be done and we'll take it one game at a time. Playing Saturday Tuesday Saturday and so on really isn't much of an hardship. In fact due to our awful (nonexistent) training facilities playing on a consistent basis is more beneficial than the players sitting at home. Anyway the weather is perking up next week and hopefully it'll stay that way.

To be frank we have way underacheived starting on the opening day of the season against you lot.
Rome was not built in a day and the team we put out today will be streets ahead of the team that day.
We have played orient and Morecambe the last two and without being arrogant they are light years behind us.
Today we will have the strongest team we have put out all season...I expect John,Lee, Maddison to start and perhaps Alofayan. Quality keeper on the bench for the first time.
Stevenage are a decent team, organised and hard working with a great result away at Tranmere, but if those changes are made i expect us to win by a couple of goals

According to the Sky fella covering your game v Morecambe, they shat all over you.

not being bias or over the top it was not the best game but we controlled the first half without being at our best.
The second half was all one way and we would have won the game 2/3 nil until they whined and got Maddison sent off. Last ten it was all Morecambe

I think Bolton will beat Stevenage by at least 2 clear goals. Southend to shock Cambridge today, you never know.

Decent team Jensen the keeper never made it Jones comes in for Brockbank Divine intervention in our back four as John makes hid debut to play at the side of Baptiste.
Still no Lee [isolating] or Sarcevic injured in Midfield but Maddison and Afolayan come in.
Afolayan is well thought of at west ham
Good team that today, no excuses from me if it goes wrong

Genuinely think we're banned from getting penalties. Had one all season.

Apologies in advance Barrow, Grimsby, Stevenage and Bolton fans but this game has got 0-1 Southend written all over it.

We've been so poor that I can't even tell if Southend do have a chance of staying up or if they're as poor as their position in the standings suggests.

Reckon our game would have been fine today - grass is soft enough under foot. Should be no trouble tomorrow.
