Given the nature of masi’s posts i’ve got to assume he’s still a kid? it’s a bit harsh trying to get a kid into trouble pal!

He’s 12 and a half mate, he gets upset if you don’t mention the half.

your not letting go so these are the facts
Game one.......The referee called the game off.....the pitch was playable come kick off
[why did a local ref call the game off 6 hours before kick off time] hhhmmm
Game 2 not a chance the game was ever going to be played.......we asked for a early inspection......you made us travel knowing the game was off
Game three......you got beat,draw a line under it and move on !!

He was just getting wound up about it for no reason.

Sometimes there are frozen or waterlogged pitches. Sometimes teams and supporters travel and then the game gets called off. Sometimes referee calls games off for health and safety reasons even though the pitch might later look playable.

You do your best to do right by the other team on travel. It's not as if we were doing it intentionally (although that would have made the meltdowns funnier).

The re-arranged fixture you look after yourself with the recovery times - you don't consider the opposition. I wouldn't expect any different if the situation was reversed.

We wanted to play the game and had no interest whatsoever in postponing it.

So you made up that I said we would beat Bolton then? No wonder you want to move on:lol:

Hold my hands up if it was not you....it was a Mansfield fan here

FYI there was nothing wrong in suggesting that anyway, despite the result the performance shown we are more than capable of beating this Bolton side which isn’t pulling up any trees let’s be honest, every Mansfield and Bolton fan could see that last night. Although we lack depth Clough has obviously turned us in to a good side.

I think we have both kicked on from our first meeting in October. What won us the game was quality coming off the bench when the was a lot of tired legs. We have only had that since the end of January.
Most if not all teams will be playing 2/3 games a week.
Us you and Bradford will soon be swapping places with Newport, Orient and Morecambe
These three teams are improving week on week where as small squads losing key players have inpacted the three teams currently above us.

Excellent, that’s our upcoming 20-match unbeaten run in the bag.

Just a quick aside on our loss to Stevenage. The Stevenage fans were sending twitter messages to the Crawley ifollow commentators through the match. The comments were along the lines of how good the commentators were compared to other teams and how grateful they were that the usual biased home centric piffle was not being spouted.

Sycophantic, maybe but it worked. As the game progressed the fairer the commentators became. Maybe we could learn something here?

Very true it was a game that could of gone either way. Afolayen was unlucky hitting the post first half
Gilks then made a blunder, you scored again. Then we scored 2 fortunate goals before Arthurs quality winner.
Would of been no complaints had we lost or drew......We have played better and lost this season.
We have quality coming off the bench now where perhaps you have a decent 11\13 ....Without doubt we would have lost that game pre Transfer window.
I think us you and Bradford will all end up in the top 10
