The attendance tonight could be a shock to the system. We’re only getting around 5,500 home fans these days and a Tuesday night game doesnt exactly appeal.

I thought Mansfield’s turn out was piss poor on Saturday and we had a few more home fans wanting to abuse Flitcroft and Lurch.

Expecting a win tonight - based more on hope and the law of averages.

The last time we had a sub 5000 league gate at the CG was  a Tuesday night v Huddersfield in March 2008.  It was early days under Fitton etc with Malpas as manager, part of the reason for the modest gate may have been we had over 10,000 Town fans on the previous Sat v Leeds.

Fitton and Co had their campaign to sell season tickets, which although not directly achieving the objective did increase the gate figure for a game as season tickets could be counted even if not present, further they became transferable, technically not the case previously.

I think we'll have to get used to the idea of our modest advantage on gates with many of the other clubs in Div 4, being eroded away as fans increasingly get used to our reduced status, and don't like what they see.

I find it a bit hard to believe anyone, other than maybe 4D, would turn up last Sat because they wanted to abuse Flitcroft and Futcher.... there's plenty in our own set up if that's what floats your boat.

Just decided that game would suffice, the added spice being an ex manager coming back. Should have guessed it would be a nailed on draw, but thought there would be some goalmouth activity.

Cheers.  Good news.

150 mile round trip starting in the rush hour not on for me.

Hope it's a decent gate in the circs

Must win game tonight. Can’t afford to drop further points from the playoff pack. Hopefully we score an early goal to calm any nerves. Otherwise I can see it being 0-0 or Cambridge nicking a 1-0 win. Will be interesting to see who starts tonight.

Has Brown got a big lawn that Richards pops round and cuts twice a week, no other reason he is still in the team!!  Let us hope he defies logic and gets a couple tonight!!

On paper, 2/3rds of that defence, all of that midfield and half that attack should be too strong for Cambridge. As we know, paper isn't where the game is played. Come the fuck on Town, everyone would absolutely love a damn good thrashing (even the trollolololol types). Put these fuckers to the sword and give us something to only have a less than 10 page thread about Smiley
