“Today was the 10th League One fixture at Boundary Park, and we have failed to score in 8 of them.
Including aways, the total is 12 in 21.
How bad can it get? Under 30 goals for the entire season? Someone in the top 4 divisions to outscore us entirely?”

“We are down this year last year was a miracle. Lightning doesn’t strike twice”

“We travel in numbers considering how shite we are”

“Not bothering going. Can’t believe I`m not bothering to go to a roses derby on Boxing Day but I suspect I am not alone. This pathetic shambles of a souless side has finally broken me.”

“Wouldn’t usually have gone there expecting anything, but it genuinely feels like a waste going to watch this lot. Might as well be Forest Green such is how little I care about them.”

“I think the Sheffield game will be very much about damage limitation tbh,  I think we will set up even more defensively than normal (if that’s possible), and hope somehow to grind out a thrilling 0-0. I suspect that this wont work and we’ll get beat 2 or 3 nil, (never having threatened their goal).”

“Draws at Sheff Utd and Fleetwood would be great results in my eyes, it will probably be backed up by an insipid 0-2 loss at home to Vale, this is what pisses me off more than anything tbh.”

“Leon Clarke could recalled to the Sheffield United team, not good news for us.”

“I didn’t realise Lafferty was at Sheff Utd. on a season long loan.”

“Lafferty was being lined up to come here on a season long loan but Sheff Utd got there before us, it’s a shame as he’s a solid left back at our level and is head and shoulders above what we ended up with.”

“Agree. Really liked him last season.”

“didn’t even know it was all ticket – just assumed pay on the day – well, Sheffield end it will be then.”
