Highest attendance of the night,  13,166 of the other 28 games only Sheffield Wednesday achieved more than 10,000 (11,682).
7 games with less than crowds of 3,000.

Thought Mansfield under Steve Evans were massive now. They achieved the virtually impossible feat of getting an even lower attendance than Forest Green.

(going on highlights only)

Nice to see us going in for a few challenges.
We looked a little static at the back for all 3 of their goals but putting that down to the team needing time to gel and the fact the oppo were 2 divisions above.

Nice to see another goal from a set piece, I reckon we've already beaten last years total already.

I also have no idea who half the team is...I'm sat there looking at those highlights going 'who's that??'

I have a "friend" who may have watched the Carlisle game "from the USA."
He (or she) had the squad number list open for just that reason.

I will go out on a limb here and state we won't concede any goals, all season long, like the ones we conceded last night in any league games!  That's the sort of goals we would manage when we had Luongo, Gladwin, Swift et al playing for us, and if any of our league friends can muster a 7 figure transfer fee I might need to eat those words, but quite frankly, no L2 side is going to manage that.  We'll concede "better" goals but not ones born from such a style of football.  The defence hasn't been set-up to combat that type of on purpose attacking style.

I was at Reading v Gillingham last night. Tickets were 7 and under 6K turned up. Quite poor for them I thought, particularly with such cheap tickets.

My thoughts exactly. No L2 team is likely to have either the tactical set-up or the personnel to pull off such intricate passing.

It was way more fun steadfastly refusing to pause the shots and rewind and not having such devise as a team list as a way of figuring out who the players were! Mullins actually took me a while (not having any clue what squad numbers were issued either),  but I think he'll be easily spotted from now on.

Think the comments about our defence are a little harsh bearing in mind the opposition.  Norwich put out a strong side & I thought we did quite well for most of the game, but their class told on several occasions, they always had a yard or two & were rapid in their movement.  I think at times we played like a very good L2 team, loads of energy and passion & having seen the new set up feel a hell of a lot more optimistic than I did a couple of months ago.

Our work rate and effort was fantastic & whereby I thought we might fade towards the end, we actually came close to grabbing an unlikely equaliser.  Love Mullins, a bit headless chicken 1st half but great in the second up top with Smith and really unlucky with his late chance.  We looked like scoring on every set piece around the box.

Got drenched but enjoyed the game, early days but positive start!
