Mrs Audrey detests the Franchise - we sat close to their lot in that 3-0 drubbing. She wasn't happy.

The result today will dictate whether a weekend in Blackpool is in order next week as we take on Morecambe.

Haven't done that since the McMahon days when we won promotion up there in a 0-0 draw.

For PV's benefit the Wolfman is not eligible to play todayHope we don't get off to our usual slow, laborious start and concede early cos that fucking drum will be unbearable.  I'll go 2-2.
Oh right I assumed because he was technically signed before the dealine of 5pm that he could play, the FL is a bit confusing like that, surely if he was signed on loan AFTER 5pm then he is ineligable to play until January? confused!

Transfers have to be done before midday the day before a game to be eligible the following day I believe?

 Today is a good test.... if we are to do anything much this season, then we need to win games like this.  

On early season form, it looks highly unlikely, Franchise have the ability to defend, and can guarantee we'll give them a goal or 2.

So as a pointer this trend needs to stop pdq.  The last game v the pile of steaming turd which is Franchise, was a similar thing... a Town side just too easy to beat, by an organised outfit, we don't want to be repeating that.

I thought you’d take a repeat of our last result against franchise...a point early season against one of the favourites wouldn’t be a disaster.

My mistake... I was thinking the 3-0 game that was mentioned was the last game.

Indeed a tight defensive draw would be acceptable.... it's just atm it's very difficult to see it happening.

I’d be pretty happy with a turgid 0-0, although not if I was going today I suppose

I hate these lot almost as much as those yellow bastards down the road. They have a very good defence though. 0-2 defeat, unless Diagouraga is back.

No Adebayo at all. Bench looks very weak.
