Close now to a home sell out, Lorne Street sold out, Hamil last few tickets left, Railway Paddock and Stand both sold out (all be it reduced capacity due to toilet roof collapse)

Couple of injuries, Mitch Clarke out is a big blow as is Chislett but otherwise good to see Plant on his correct side.

Devine and Garrity behind Wilson could be interesting.

Maybe five out of our strongest eleven starting today.....Dont see us getting much today.

To say i am not confident is a understatement

Behave your budget is probably over double ours you’ll have the depth regardless to compete with us today.

Draw would be acceptable for us here.

Bad feeling about this game against Stevenage. For the first time this season we are setting up very differently. With no recognised centre forward again, I can see the logic somewhat as I think Bodin will be outmuscled on his own.

We have gone for wingbacks for the first time. This will either be a masterstroke or you'll see us completely disorganised and see our set up go pear-shaped, quickly!

I know what you are saying but i'd snap your hand off for a point here. This injury/suspension crisis is as bad as I've seen it in a long time for us if ever. No Santos, Johnston, Geth, Thomason, Maghoma, Mendes-Gomes, Adeboyejo plus Dacres-Cogley hasn't trained all week because he had a kid and his wife and kid are still in hospital after birth on Tuesday. And Dempsey and Charles shouldn't be playing but both have had injections because of numbers available to us. Just one of those crazy times. You are also a massive bogey side for us haha

Jokull Andresson sent off for a 'handball' (it wasn't handball) outside his area. Horrible mistake (Again) from Jokull, but another referee guessing instead of doing his job properly.

Disgraceful from a terrible goalkeeper.

Port Vale - Calamity cost us a penalty and defeat.
Shrewsbury - a rare faultless game.
Stevenage - Calamity, should have cost a goal but wrongly ruled offside.
Lincoln - conceded a goal and looked slow motion in getting down, cost us a win.
Derby - conceded a gormless penalty which sealed the win for them.
Wycombe - you know what happened. Cost us any chance of getting anything from the game by being such a thick gormless c***.

So that’s 6 games, 5 gamed where he’s committed howlers. Probably the worst goalkeeper I’ve had the misfortune of seeing play for our club. And I’ve seen some bad ones.

Worst half of the season by a mile, we’ve been way off the pace today. Linesman is absolutely dreadful mind. Doesn’t seem to know the offside rule. Lucky break for Bolton with a slip but we need a massive improvement second half.

Although on that first half... I thought we were absolutely excellent. We don't usually show up against you but we have today. You could have nicked an equaliser towards the end of the half - good save from Baxter but we are well worth our lead.

Let's be fair - Mellish was at fault for the Vale debacle, though Andresson could probably have done better with it. At Stevenage Andresson earned us a point, one error not withstanding. Harsh criticising him for the Lincoln goal IMO.

If he's the worst keeper you've seen playing for us you must be pretty young.

Bolton all over us. We just look all over the place and they’ve knocked it around us.

Some odd comments about players missing etc. You've got 5 x the budget of us and it shows.

Could be 3 or 4 down really, we've struggled to establish any attacks.

Probably? All he had to do was control the ball and clear it.

Simmo was protecting him putting it all on Mellish. Yes he shouldn’t throw it to him but a professional goalkeeper should have some basic ball control. It was a howler.

I’ve never seen a goalkeeper make that many glaring gaffs in just 6 appearances. If you can think of any enlighten me.

Far too deep in my opinion. It’s like the Blackpool game at home.

Some sloppy passing in dangerous areas.

I’d get Massey and Thomas on.

Odd comments...?? we have a good budget yeah (certainly not 5 times yours btw! We aren't Derby) but if we had everyone fit and available there would be at least 5 changes to that 11 and 2 that are playing are playing unfit with injections. It wasn't an excuse - just that i'd take a point because of current situation. You spent most of last season complaining about your injury issues.

We also played like this in spells for the first half at Reading then threw it away. Hopefully we can see this one out.

Terrible start to the season. Worse than I ever imagined. No idea where the next win is going to come from.

Garbage summer of recruitment looking really costly.

Only ourselves to blame there, got it completely wrong first half and despite dominating the second we couldn’t find the equaliser.

Play as we did second half we don’t lose that but we are still a side learning.

As good as they were first half, I thought Bolton were dreadful second half and we deserved a point. It just goes to show that even with the supposed better teams, if you put them under pressure, are not that good. We got it massively wrong first half.

Good following but made zero noise. Why do decent players like Dion Charles have to be such weapons;? Thought Bolton dedended quite well but disappointed to come away with nothing.

Point at Derby, we didn’t really look like scoring but restricted County to a couple of good headed chances, both of which they missed.
Really solid backs to the wall defending…

After back to back 2-0 defeats and 1 win in 10, our next 2 fixtures are against 5th and 4th.

I’m resigned to relegation now. Just don’t see where the next win is coming from, and amazingly we haven’t even played bad mostly, so worryingly there isn’t much room to improve. 7 points from 10 games is peak for this team.

After all the optimism, typical CUFC style to just deflate. At least it’s not the football league we’re being relegated from. Small mercies.

Strange game at home to Cheltenham. Said before the game we needed to get an early goal to settle us in and sap their confidence, and we did just that. Cheltenham were terrible first half with a back 4, we exploited it well with 2 goals for Sorensen at RWB. Their no. 10 was rightly subbed after 30 mins, he couldnt do anything right. Not sure who he was.

2nd half, Cheltenham FINALLY changed their shape to what lookes like a back 5. We were happy to let Cheltenham have all the ball, they huffed and puffed, but i can't remember our keeper having a save. Lots of crosses etc, but not very dangerous at all. Very bizzarre game as it was too comfortable.

Just pleased we kept 11 players on the pitch with how strange some of the refs decisions were, scored 2 and kept a clean sheet.

Lowest home attendance so far with just over 100 away fans. I'm sure your new manager will get you going, but your team understandably is massively devoid of any confidence.

4 home gamea, 3 clean sheets, 3 wins and just the 1 goal conceded against Carlisle.

I think the best I can say about that Carlisle side was they never let their heads drop and showed good togetherness and fight, but there wasn’t much attacking threat on show - though the black lad up front (Ablade, I think?) had some nous and skill.

There wasn’t much attacking threat from us either in fairness, but we got the goals.

I don’t think we pressed home the one-man advantage that well, and we still lack a coherent style as a team, but oh well, shouldn’t moan too much after a win.

Lost to Oxford 3-1 and can have no complaints, beaten by the better side.

We started well enough, took the lead after some good play by Roberts to set Hemmings away, he pulled it across to Reid who tucked it away to give us the lead. That was about as good as it got for us, Oxford settled and then took control of the game, bar a short spell in the second half it was one way traffic.

Greg Leigh struck twice either side of half time and Moore scored from a short corner that caught us out to seal the win.

We competed well but unfortunately their class proved too much. Have a feeling I'll be saying that a little bit more in the coming weeks, looking at who we've played, 10 opponents so far, the top 2 are amongst those but the other 8 are all in the bottom half, some tougher games ahead.

Bloody Northampton, we never turn up against them. Not signing a striker in August is unsurprisingly costing us

Lincoln won't have an easier game this season.

Darrell has got a hell of a job on his hands.
