As someone who was there, let me help you with some of the details.So, what are my thoughts on today? Well, I don't have any (I'm sure some of you will be delighted to hear it). Purchased the game 15 minutes late and had no comms until the 35th minute. Then for the entire second half I felt like I had entered a 45 minute "Guess Where the Ball Is" competition, knowing full well there wasn't a prize. Commentators who arrived late also couldn't see fuck all.
Concerning gap now opened between ourselves and the top two. With our January power buys I have no doubt we will win the majority of our 19 games (i.e 12-14 or so) - I have major concerns however that both Wednesday and Plymouth will to, though... where are they going to drop that many points?. Derby and Barnsley also look like making this a five horse race for two spots - to a lesser extent Bolton but I don't see them challenging realistically.
Wednesday at home early Feb will likely decide if we contend the autos or enter the playoff lottery.
Still see us putting a prolonged run of wins together, but without them two dropping points, it doesn't matter.
Definitely worried us a little at 2-1 and 3-2.Sounds like we gave it a go against Plymouth, without really worrying them.
Thank the Lord there are teams determined to go down ahead of us this season though.
Yes, I actually played in a non-league fixture a few years back! There was a power cut on 77 minutes and all the floodlights went out (genuinely!).Anyone else heard of the rule that if a game is abandoned after 75 minutes the result stands? Never heard of that one or recall it happening?

do you do anything other than slag off our fanbase? The arrogance is a minority. Every club has their share of titsStill confident we’ll put a winning run together but my god we’ve imploded results wise. Definitely have not had our fair share of luck in some fine margin moments but there’s no shying away from the fact we’ve been poor. I just wish our fan base didn’t come across so painfully cocky and arrogant. The overreactions both for good and bad moments are pretty embarrassing from our lot.
Credit to wendies and argyle for grinding out wins, Morecambe/Cambridge in the league next before Wednesday come to PR.
The thing is, it's ok doing it against the likes of Plymouth and Derby, we need to start doing it to the teams around us. Our worst performances have been against Burton and FGR.Definitely worried us a little at 2-1 and 3-2.
We weren’t great today, our passing was off yet we showed the clinical side of our game when we had to. Callum Wright is easy on the eye, and Jay Matete is exactly what we needed in midfield.
Cheltenham surprised me, you came and had a real go. Did well to not let the game run away from you after conceding 2 in 2 minutes, and your pressing forced us into mistakes.
