Pre-Match View From Doncaster

“My Owls fan mate wants to come if he’ll be able to stand with me and be a fan for the night!”

“Be interesting to see how many Rovers fans turn up at Bramall Lane. Not many I reckon after last nights shambles.”

“I was gonig but not bothering now, just simply as the game is worthless.”

“1200 tops I reckon, season over, I never seen a decent game between the two.”

“I know it’s not brilliant but it’s a night game and most fans don’t think we’ll get anything out of this season plus a couple
of hundred fans are banned because of ‘pyros’ talk on social media and a lot of fans refuse to come to home games because of
how poor we are at home and because we still have Dickov”

“We are nearer the relegation places than the play offs. 8 points from Relegation. 10 points from play offs.
We all know what happened from this point last season…………………………………………..Is history about to repeat itself?”

“Nailed on to win at Bramall Lane.”

“No chance. Another season wasted. Roll on next year !”

“We’ll draw. It won’t be inspiring but we won’t lose.”

“I have absolutely no idea which Donny team will turn up but we’ve gone from an outside chance of the play-offs to a possible relegation, given last season and the plonker we have in charge I wouldn’t bet against it.”

“Sheff U are shaky as hell at home so we have to tear at them. If we are going to miss out then I’d rather be able to say we
went out with guns blazing than with a whimper.”

“Mate of mine , well I say mate , if anyone can be friendly towards a Dingle, went on Saturday and said the Blunts totally out
played them”

“OK so its one game I am not best to comment on being a bus ride away. However I go and support my team through thick and thin
as do most on here, so I suppse we can only see our viewpoint in terms of floating support. I am expecting a massive
disapointment on Tuesday. Will we sell all the, i believe, 1500 posibly not. The season is over for a lot I fear. However I
hope we do sell more. “

“It’s local pride for me now and I want to finish above our mates from Dingleville.
Sheffield exile I am staying with Mrs Rover in that little place where Brian the Blade comes from”

“Whilst I do agree that Sheff u may be too soon for unleashing all of the kids, I think Lund, Middleton and McKay would give us
an energy that Utd would not be expecting and could give us a morale boosting victory. I am an eternal optimist though and live
in hope for an inspirational leader as a manager. Oh well so much for that dream”

“I will be there to see us beat the stuttering blades”

“The possibility of some good football from our team? Effort. Passion. Shots on goal. Tenacious defending. The manager showing
some tactical ability
I fear the worst even allowing for our decent away form we’ve played too many get out of jail cards this season, I fear a bit
of a spanking but yet I do so hope I’m wrong”

“everywhere I’ve been this season not one side has had a good home atmosphere”

“If Chris Smalling……is the 4th best centre back in England, then Andy-f***ing-Butler must be a decent shout for the 5th

“difference between Jones and Butler, they both have the passion and have the heart. ………… Jones could do his job,
Andy Butler cant.”

Pre-Match View From Barnsley

” 10 games undefeated, dare we dream?”

“Barnsley are currently 13/5 to WIN on Saturday.
Jabo Ibehre is 8/1 to open the scoring, with Sam Winnall at 15/2 and Conor Hourihane at 9/1
It would appear that at this moment in time, the bookies are favouring the Blades, with United priced at evens, and Mark McNulty 11/2 to open the scoring. Matty Done is priced at 6/1.”

“I fancy a 1-1 draw”

“Blunts cant make their minds up If they are massive or not
Some of them don’t want to come in case they lose.
But then they won a game so all decided to come.
But then they lost so wish they hadn’t bought on”
“The second biggest team in the 4th biggest city in England, sat comfortably in a playoff position, they should have sold out in 5 mins. Very poor”

“AFTER ALL IT IS THEIR CUP FINAL : Wednesday would have sold out signs up weeks ago”

“more or less sold art? ya know what they say. theres a first time for everything?”

“Is Clough kidding us when he suggests its more important to ‘not lose’.”

“the more they bring the more will see what a gulf in class there is now between the teams which met in november. 5500 blunts scurrying off home to get back under their rocks after hammered em! sat cant come soon enough!”

“Thing is they are obsessed with attendances !! BCSD syndrome”

“I’m not too bothered about who’s Willy is bigger than the other, stood over urinals taking a peek, couldn’t gi a monkeys, I just hope it’s a cracking game with as little trouble as possible, a banging atmosphere…”

“To be fair to the Blunts it’s not a bad effort on Saturday to sell nearly 6k for a team in up and down form and a lunch time kick off .
Nobody is questioning who the blunts main rivals are , however it matters to them more than they let on and it’s the same with Sheffield North .”

“6000 fans in North stand this weekend who absolutely despise your club
and no doubt will give you hammer for 45 minutes, could you stand there and fully concentrate at 17 years old ?,
I think it’ll be a massive risk playing the pig in nets this weekend”

“You’re 17 years old. Have just made your professional debut. You read a message board and some dumb **** fan refers to you as a pig. One of your own fans.
Grow up you idiot. You’re boring the **** out of me.”

“Whats the bigger risk, playing at home against an average team or making your debut away against the runaway league leaders.
He passed his test with flying colours , he’ll be fine.”

“They’ll give him some right hammer on Saturday, nowhere to hide for the kid ether, only the lad and maybe Johnson and Crossley know if he’ll handle it but it’s got to be a worry for the coaching team surely.”

“We talking about same football club. They don’t make any noise. They will sing greasy chip butty in 1st minute and that’s it
I bet I had a harder time in goal when I was stand in goalkeeper once on a Sunday morning and a bloke stood behind net and every time ball came near me he said I was going to drop it”

“It’s United who I always think of as pigs. That may be because I used to work with a Wednesday fan”

“I always call Wednesday the Pigs. Swilsboro/Pigs link.”

“the police statement about the sheff utd match:
“We’re well aware that tensions are running high between the two groups of fans”
They are? Has something happened which I have missed? I thought it was just a football match against a local rival. What tensions are running high?”

“Another well thought out explanation by our friends at SYP”

“Act first, justify it later.”

“What a joke
Where playing Sheffield United not Galatasary”

“Might just mean tension over the points, if there is a loser then it’s going to cause a bit of emotion which could boil over. We lose and we’re in a bigger battle with the teams around us, they lose and their form (if it continues) puts them out of the play-offs in a few weeks.If the away fixture is owt to go by, the police’s attitude was as if it was an Old Firm game. Way over the top.”

“- Our biggest game against them for years.
– Both fighting for a play off spot at the back end of the season.
– Our supporters reputation this year.
– Them having one of the nastiest mobs about when they turn out.
– Biggest crowd at Oakwell in over 4 years.
– Early kick off
– Penny Black in the 90’s and 200 of them knocking on KGV pub door at 9am before a fixture 10 years ago.
Aye, l’ll say they’ve got it spot on.”

“There is also the hatred from Chris Morgan and Ched Evans stuff.”

“Ridiculous. What tensions? Just to go the match then go home. It’s a football team ffs, not ISIS”

“Chris Morgan happened. Most fans wil just go and enjoy the game but the minority who want to cause trouble have a ready made excuse, not that they need one.”

“17,500 is the latest box office prediction for the Sheff U attendance.”

“We’ll be Only the third team in this division to have an attendance over 16,000 this season. One of the other clubs is Coventry for their one off home coming before they went back to the norm.”

“Going to be very difficult on Saturday lunch time , we are playing an established league 1 club who have held their own for 5 seasons now at this level .
They have never looked in danger at any point during their league 1 tenure and with our selfs not carrying anything like their league 1 experience it’s going to be tough for our young lads .
It is of course our first season for many many years in league 1 and at times we have struggled to adapt to our new found surroundings but we do lack the experience the Blunts have and this may prove decisive on Saturday .
We can only dream of emulating their superb league 1 record but if we are to be as massive as they are then that is the model we should follow .
Looking forward to a great game if not overly confident , aye thank you .”
“Draw no good for us but decent result for Sheff Utd
We need to go at them from the first whistle
We are know united fans will be on Clough back soon as we go in front”

“I’d say, given the potential loss of confidence an unbeaten-run ending defeat to our local rivals may bring, that we need to win to have a decent chance of 6th as well.”

“Owt could happen, massive game for us both.”

“Seen United fans tweeting asking if they can take their tickets back, are football fans in general that fickle?”

“That feeling you get before a big local derby…What is it? Anxiety, passion, fear or a mixture of all 3?
I always get this feeling when we are playing Leeds and we’ve done ok against them recently I just can’t help but think we are setting ourselves up for a mighty fall… Suppose I’ll know at 2.15 on Saturday!!!”

“I just see it as a huge game in terms of league position and playoff push..”

“All I feel is a serene sense of calm, because we’re going to smash The Pigs.
Their players won’t turn up, and we’re dying to beat them because a) we hate them and b) we want to go up.
Nine unbeaten, at home, in front of a partisan crowd and a stand full of rape apologists who turn quicker than milk.
It’ll be a reight day.”

“Dread given I lived in Shitfailed for years and have loads of United supporting mates. Based on the inverse law of Proprotion we are playing ok them not so good they are bound to **** us.”

“I work with Pigs.
They all know I absolutely fcuking hate them. I try to be nice and friendly when we’re discussing football, but sometimes the mask slips and my true feelings become clear.
I’m up for this one in a way I haven’t been for a game since *that* day at Huddersfield.
They can’t beat us. They won’t beat us.”

“Can’t wait, should be 16-17,000 there and a cracking atmosphere. If United win then that’s 5th spot pretty much sewn up, our unbeaten run ended in the worst possible manner, and our play-off push in jeopardy. Which is why we’ve got to win. A fourth draw in a row wouldn’t be disastrous but we have to keep winning our home games. We’ve just taken a point each from the two best teams in the division, United’s confidence will have been knocked after a last minute home defeat to Crewe, but literally anything could happen on the day. All I want is 3 points. Don’t care how we get them, just get them.”

“Derby games between us and either of the two dee dar brothers are different from any of our other existing derbys… They almost always end up being dirty games so we need to be prepared for a fight.”

“I think our squad is better then theirs, and I think we have a better manager, I just hope we both turn up with our A games, then it should be a good game, and we’ll win.”

“Thing is, come 10 past 2 on Saturday, United fans will be saying the midfielders milk as just mentioned never turned up, when the chances are it’ll be the fact Pearson & Scowen did turn up, and did a job on them. If we get a result on Saturday it’ll be down to them two, same as if this season amounts to anything it’ll be down to having the best two midfielders of their type in the division.”

“when all’s said and done, we’re similar size clubs. They might do us on gates, but Arsenal get more in than Liverpool, wouldn’t suggest they’re any bigger though. We’re a small town club and considering that, our attendances are impressive. I’m sure that were we to have an extra 200,000 people living in the town/city/borough we’d get 20,000 too.”


Pre-Match View From Crewe

“Staggered to see that abomination of a new home kit from Sheffield United. Not sure why Adidas keep wanting to get rid of stripes, first Southampton, then West Brom and now Sheffield United. It’s sheer lunacy!
Anyway to the game. I believe this will be such a dull, turgid affair between two ultra defensive managers that means we’ll play straight into Sheffield United’s hands.Greg Leigh vs John Brayford will be an interesting battle but I can see our defence crumbling at set pieces which will cost us.
2-0 to the Blades for me after another utterly spineless showing of slow, predictable defensive football complete with one shot on target for the full 90 minutes. However, I would love to see us go for it at Bramall Lane like we did when we were 2-0 down 2 years ago and then get one over Nigel Clough though, what a bitter little man he is. That 3-3 game was one of the best Crewe games I’ve ever seen.
Post match, our tactical genius of a manager will then go on to say this was a bonus game and we need to be realistic when playing a side like Sheffield United despite the abysmal form Sheffield United are in, only scraping past a poor Port Vale side thanks to a penalty. He’ll then give the inevitable ‘I’m confident of staying in the division’ to the press.
Least Harry Maguire isn’t playing in this game, 3 goals in 2 games for him at Bramall Lane against us”

“Giving this one a miss myself. Never won at Bramall Lane”

“why on earth Davis plays for tight 1-0 wins is utterly baffling. He needs to realise the best form of attack is defence”

“Sheffield United winning 4-0 was the worst thing that could possibly have happened. Davis will now have his ‘we’ve got to be realistic excuse’ ready to whip out. “

“Davis will will go 5 at the back and “try” to play for a 0-0, he won’t stop his son despite him being horribly out of form and he won’t play wingers, leaving us very narrow and the strikers very isolated.
Sheffield Utd 4-1 Crewe (Done 2, Murphy, Baxter, Ikpeazu) 18,466 (350 Crewe) “

“Spent the day at Bramall Lane and the pitch was not looking too clever and with their game v Scunthorpe its not going to get any better.
Think hoofball up to Uche could be a good option on Sat.”

“without doubt the worst Crewe side I’ve seen in my many years of watching us, we are a new level of shite far below the rest of the bottom half of this division along with Colchester and Yeovil. Ah well, least we agree Sheffield United will have an easy home win.”

“Sheffield United Have Great Quality “

“We have two players away on international duty. Maybe a change of formation?”

“Let’s face it, we can swap and change all we like. We can’t defend. We’ve only been able to defend in one season in nearly 20 years”

“Going for a shock Alex 1-0 win… stranger things have happened.”

“Would love to be wrong, but can only see this going one way and dependant on how early Sheff. Utd score, if could be a hatful. 3-0 loss”


Pre-Match View From Scunthorpe

“Stop calling it a blip, Mr Robins. No win in seven and three points from twenty one is relegation form. With absolutely no
sign of the defence getting their act together we are becoming prime candidates for the drop.”

“Another ‘unlucky’ defeat coming up”

“Since the start of January we have won 4 games out of 16”

“We lack two or three bullies across the park. Henderson ran our defence ragged and pulled them all over the park. It was embarrassing to watch at times.
The Premiership loanees are good at tippy tappy pretty football, but not putting the boot in and the dirty stuff. Are they really up for the fight? They may fit in well in a decent team but I’m afraid it simply isnt working. It’s time for bullies and rolling the sleeves up. Send some of the loanees back and lets have some fighters instead.
This side is devoid of aggression and we are lacking some real experienced characters. If we play like that at Sheff we’ll get dicked by four or five.”

“The trouble with Mark Robins is after having a great run he has been too obsessed with not conceding goals and not thinking that scoring more goals than your opponent wins you games rather than trying for a clean sheet and hoping to get a one nil win which is certainly not working.”

“We shouldn’t get dicked four or five at Sheffield because we had the beating of them last Saturday.”

“We have a more experienced striker than Wootton scoring goals for Partick Thistle.”

“Lyle Taylor has only scored once and is being used as an impact sub.”

“Robins must go. Witless, personality less, gormless, dour ball bag. Send him back to the milltown after tar and feathering. I hate him.”

“Unfortunately I have lost the will to live with it all ( yes, I’m one of those who has returned his Sheffield away ticket and said stuff it ).”

“Robins should be sacked in the summer wether he keeps us up or not.”

“We have had 17 games to get 4 or 5 wins,we have got 2 draws,it is going to be a nervy last few games with Sheffield United after promotion “

“this is a lot more than just a bad run, this is relegation form and if the management team don’t get their fingers out then we’ll be back in the bottom four with only a handful of games left.”

Pre-Match View From Port Vale

“We need a result tomorrow”

“This will be our 4th straight away win if we get a victory”

“4th win on the trot away for the Vale? 3rd defeat on the trot for the Blades? Obvious score draw”

“unfortunately when we play any other team who are going through a bad spell we always seem to end their bad run by gifting them a win. We are nice like that”

“It’s always a good day there.”

“apart from 2-3 certain starters, I don’t think it particularly matters who make the XI as long as they are ‘up for it’ and show more grit and determination than on Tuesday.
One of the worst aspects in the week was how easily we accepted defeat and we never really looked energetic enough to get the goal back.
I don’t know how SU play, but they are one of the better teams in the league and this is one of our hardest away games. Luckily, I don’t think they have a tall team and instead play the ball on the ground a lot more, which may or may not suit our defenders. In defence, I don’t think we have the players to make a huge difference. They lack physicality and power and a ticking off isn’t going to change that.”

“Season is effectively over so I’d like to see some of our younger players given ago, although maybe that should start with a home game rather than a tricky away one.”

“for those saying stick the kids in, we’re still6 points short of being safe yet. The league is so tight this year its likely we’ll need 54 points to be certain of staying up. Lets get there then give them a run out.”

“Is this the worst ever Vale defence in your living memory? Any defence with Kevin Steggles in has to be a contender.”

“With a couple of exceptions, we are just going through the motions”

“The fact that this pathetic defence vastly improved when a 19 years old inexperienced on load defender ,was involved says it all”

Pre-Match View From Walsall

“Much better performance on Saturday: brighter, quicker paced and better all-round team play.”

“Everything relates to Wembley at the moment of course and our last League One fixture before next Sunday sees us entertaining Nigel Clough’s Blades, but their recent form has suggested more of the Blunts than Blades, to be honest. They signed Steven Davies (striker) on loan from Blackpool a couple of weeks ago but even he was substituted last Saturday. The Walsall contingent signed by Clough have all gone their separate ways so there won’t be any ex-Saddlers celebrating a la Grigg. Leading scorer McNulty has 12 goals to his name, but remained on the bench last week-end . Their return of 6 points from the last 18 is nowhere near promotion material and is only 1 point better than ours, but it should be remembered that United did bring off a 1-3 win at Ashton Gate on Valentine’s day which at least shows that Bristol City are not impregnable. think that with everyone trying to impress and stake their claim for a Wembley start we could re-invent Fortress Bescot and win this one 2-0, with goals from Hiwula and Sawyers (who is due for one!!).”

“About time we won. 1-0 us, in a game with no top gear.”

“Think we’ll win. What should see us needing one win in nine to avoid the drop. Hopefully we’ll get a few more than that – a top half finish would be great!!”

“Cant believe Florent Cuvelier Signed for Burton Albion 😯 I don’t know what wages they pay at Burton but surely he’d improve us for the last few games of the season could have been the difference between finishing top six or bottom half”

“The Flo that played for us 3-4 years ago definitely would. Is he as good now though?”

“What a player Flo was when he first came at the back end of the 11-12 season. He pretty much kept us up that year as a 18/19 year old kid!
Maybe it’s something we should revisit in the summer”

“He’s way too good for league 2 level, from what he showed in his loan spells here he’s boderline championship level but obviously the many injuries since then have probably knackered him.”

“He’s too good for league one and two”

“He was with us in 2012. That’s 3 years ago. Why do people think that he’s the same player now as he was then. Let’s bring back Kyle Lightbourne he could score some goals for us!
His career so far has been blighted by hamstring problems interspersed with patches of good form and patches not so good. It would be a backward step for us IMHO to bring him to Walsall again.”

“He would have been a good championship player but for a really bad injury run. He may still get there if he can maintain some fitness, but for another team (given that Hasselbank has picked him up from the ‘have it’ cloggers at the Blunts I’d say someone might get a lot more out of him).”

“whenever Sheffield United pitch up I wonder why on earth Jose Baxter is so highly rated, he just looks like he’s just turned up from Sunday league and never seems to do anything.”

“I work with a Blades season ticket holder, and he is less than complimentary about Baxter,(as he is about most Clough signings!) so don’t think he will cause us many problems tomorrow!”

Pre-Match View From Scunthorpe

“Van Veen is an odd one. Seems to look absolutely amazing one moment and then horrible the next.
He is really struggling as a lone striker, he needs Madden up top alongside him but Robins is so against playing 4-4-2 for some reason. I think Sheff United will do us over here, we look absolutely horrible currently.”

“The lads have the week off, so if they put on a good show this Saturday, (winning might be a bit much to ask), “

“We’ve no chance of winning on saturday”

“Let’s say this dire run continues and more people want robins out, do you really think we could afford to get rid of him?”

“I would love Adkins back though that would get the attendances up!”

“Been a bit disappointed with our management team this last few games,whether it is because of playing two games a week for a fair while I do not know,but the playing formation or tactics are poor and we are getting back to the old ways and strangely enough it is the games that the prices have been reduced to try to bring supporters back have been the worst.”

“Marcus Williams could be back for saturday….”

“Weve had 95 attempts in the last six matches according to Scunthorpe Telegraph – that’s 16 on average every match- one every 5.5 minutes- the fans will flock back with these statistics!!”

“that is certainly not at home,unless that means clearing the ball out of our penalty area.”

“I think they’ve counted every time we passed the ball forward as an attempt on goal. I wonder what the “on target” count is according to them?”

Pre-Match View From Fleetwood

” Like Graham Alexander said, Its fantastic for our Club to be playing opponents like Sheffield United at the same level.”

“We have so many poor away showings this season”

“If we lose expect League 1’s Mourinho to continue his blaming it all on referees, as he does every time we lose a game. Clearly he believes that is a bizarre vendetta against Fleetwood Town.”

“I have never liked GA from his first appearance, and nothing he has done since has changed that opinion, his brand of football is abject shite, a lot of the players are not up to this league, and I wonder how they keep their shirt week in week out “

“We’ve got 44 points or whatever it is and they’ve been earned by these players by and large, so they’re not a bad bunch . What we do have however is a manager who is too defensive in his mindset unfortunately, and I cant see that changing any time soon. If you go out with the attitude of “don’t lose” as your target, if you go behind you make it doubly difficult for yourselves.”

“I do wonder what GA does in training as it never changes, if he could get away with it we would be the first team to play a 6-4-0 formation.”

“I expect a big clear out at the end of the season”

“Coach ticket bought, match ticket bought, injections taken and looking forward to our biggest league game yet. Unfortunately I think we’ll lose the match but it should be a great experience.”

“I think the Sheffield attendance will be more than the Preston one”

“Daunting trip to Bramhall Lane this weekend. Outside of Wembley, this will be the biggest ground we have ever played at so a good test for the lads. Even though Posh got a good result in mid week against the Blades afraid cant see us getting anything. We edge closer to a minimum 50 point mark for safety but nothing this Saturday 2-0 defeat”

“there is a lot of excitement about the trip over to the Penines for this game , as its not too far away would like to think around 200-250. If you think thats small, bear in mind that not more than 10 years or so ago, that was the size of home crowd the team were getting. ust being in this league and playing the likes of Sheffield United is fantastic. “

“2-0 defeat on Saturday”

“3-0 I reckon”

“Must be the biggest stadium/club we have a had a fixture against as a League fixture.”

“Apart from Wembley, it will be the biggest ground we have been to. Only just though, it has around 100 seats more than Coventry.”

“I used to frequent Bramall Lane every other Saturday when I was at Sheffield University. Went in the away end of course. Managed to avoid the Blades Business Crew, they aren’t to be messed with !”

“One of the cheaper away games as well with Adults under £20. We need to take as many as we can to this one in my mind. Even some of the other closer games, we need to step up our away attendance. “

Pre-Match View From Peterborough

“Reckon we’ll take around 400”

“Saturday was a breath of fresh air, after the atmosphere we have been in, and I got home before it was dark, must be a new spring.”

“Nigel should be wary on Tuesday, he has to outsmart Robbo (and his team)……not an easy thing to do.”

” A great start for Robbo and the team, a point or three at Bramall Lane to break our Tuesday night hoodoo will do for me.”

“looking forward to Tuesday night for a repeat performance.”

“This will be a lot tougher than against a poor, tired Bradford side.
Still, judging by our exploits against t’Bantams, we’re unlikely to be the soft touch we became under Fergie v t’Blades.
On the flip side we need to overcome our Tuesday hoodoo and the fact we haven’t seemed to have matched up as well against this lot as we have against Bradford in recent times.
Will settle for another 0-0 at half-time, then see if we can nick something. Actually, would happily settle for 0-0 at full-time.”

“Under Ferguson we would definitely have lost this fixture, now I have a bit of hope. Go Robbo go.”

“I know you didn’t expect us to keep a clean sheet against Bradford but I think we’re less likely to do it against Sheffield United. Maybe 1-1.”

“This may not be a “must win” game and it will be a tough game.
I hope and even believe that we’ll get at least one point from it.”

“Bramall Lane is a fantastic ground”

“A trip to another team best suited to cup competitions on Tuesday. AWAY WIN “

Pre-Match View From Crawley

“Can we make it 3 victories in a row? Not sure when we last did that in the league.
This is likely to be our largest crowd of the season although that isn’t a very high bar!!
Hopefully the amount of games United have had in the last few weeks will catch up on them and we’ll be able to secure a dodgy 2-1 win.”

“Cant see us getting much”

“i am predicting an amazing game where we will win and send 800 Chefs home hungry for a winner crying into their soup
i could be in a bit of a stew with this one but its time we pulled a plum out instewad of constant rotten apples”

Tin Pot League 1 club 1
Big Time League 1 club 0 “

“No reason we can’t win it – I’m going for a 1-1 draw though. That would still be a decent result.”

“Sheffield United are superb against top quality players and useless against teams of cloggers.
Home win “

“If we don’t concede early on I think we can get at least a point.
The longer it stays level I think Sheff Utd will push for a winner and we may get lucky for a break-away goal for the 3 points.”
“As they did well in both cups they’ve been playing twice a week for a few weeks now, so hopefully they might be getting a bit fatigued, and again hopefully a long trip South will wear them out even more.
They’re also without one of their better players in Jose Baxter (3 game ban for getting sent off at home last Saturday) although they have a good squad. “

“This should be the largest crowd of the season”

“Obviously within the rules of the ground but can not wait to express my delight at Clough being back at the Broadfield on Saturday. He really thought when he left the conference he would never have to come back to such a hostile tin pot ground like ours. It may have been years ago and his brought teams back and lost since but I can not let it go. Would love it for us to beat them”

“Let’s be honest. The table doesn’t lie. They should win this one.
Come on football, make a fool of me again. “

“They also have Matty Done who caused us no end of problems for Rochdale twice this season.”

“Matty Done is as good a player as I’ve seen at this level this season”

“Ditto. Took us to the cleaners at the Broadfield.”

“Swindon should have won last Saturday too. We can make fools of Sheffield Utd as well. It’s not like we haven’t beaten them before”
“Having watched us being consistently outplayed this season, often by equally lower ranked teams, I think our prospects of surviving at this level are quite slim.
OK, a couple of good wins keeps us interested and no doubt has a great effect on team spirit and the general moral of the supporters, but the bottom line is regrettably, from all that we have seen, that we are one of the four worst teams in the Division. “

“let’s try and be positive as we have only had majority of possesion once this season it is unlikely to be pretty.But defensively we look strong “

“Big crowd expected tomorrow. Make sure you’re here to get behind Dean and the lads”

“Its now time to have our own defined terrace song and identity.
The TIN POT Flag ( sorry I don’t know how to insert picture ) and the new chant, we’re tin pot Crawley we know who we are, should form our own self mocking identity.
Millwall have the “no one likes us” theme and I think the lads with the tin pot flag have just created a good fun identity that we should all adopt.
Well done to them ( please insert the pic here for anyone who has not seen it The flag pic )
There should be car stickers, tee shirts, more flags, even more songs etc etc etc.
So here’s to tin pot Crawley , at last we have our own song and identity. “

“‘We’ve got less fans than you’
‘We’re supposed to be at home’
And many more…”

“We are the TIN POT MEN and we come from the town of Crawley “

“We know who are, we know who we ararre, we’re tinpot Crawley, we know who we are.”
