One of the things that'll be interesting tomorrow, will be to see if there's much of a gap between us and a Conference N side. We know from recent experience there isn't between us and Conference sides, as I don't think we've beaten one for a while.

My feeling is there won't be.... York sound like they're still full time pros.

honestly, their fans are equally as scathing of their team as we are off ours.

nothing to worry about

I thought visiting teams stayed at the four pillars? I know many STFC loan players have stayed there in the past.

Big John Parkin is going to score, isn't he?

Only if he follows the manager's order not to eat too much breakfast.  Eat

Nobody needs reminding that our record against conference teams is rank. This is not a recent development, and has been the case for over 20 years.

However, York are no longer a conference team, because they are not good enough to be one. Whenever we've played teams from their current level in relatively recent years we've won comfortably. Dartford were in form and top of the Conference South, but we went 5-0 up inside an hour. York's form is worse than ours.

As most have acknowledged, there's absolutely no excuse for anything other than a relatively straightforward home win.

if we crap up against the 15th best team in national North it's time for stfc to give up football.

It would hardly be the biggest of upsets. 2 divisions of separation? No different to a L2 club beating a Championship team - in fact, that would probably be the bigger upset.

I’ve gone for an upset acca- York, FGR, Chesterfield and Cobblers.

Looking at Richard B's site, it appears Parkin has never played against STFC, whcih comes as something of a surprise.

We did edge Woking 1-0 in 09/10.... 4 failures since.

They are and, yes, the fans are up in arms because 7 or 8 of the squad are reported as having contracts to the end of next season, let alone this.

They aren’t great (seen them 3 times this season) but big and could bully us. The left back has a decent free kick on him, as I said before Moke is a class midfielder and Parkin, who tends to be a sub, will flatten anyone in his way - he’s got a decent touch too.

We should stuff them but I wouldn’t be surprised if we draw 1-1 then we win the replay.

Looks like Collins has had a few three course meals himself since his playing days ended.

When you are in a period of historic shitness, such things should not be taken for granted. Avoiding an upset should be considered a success....a replay would also bring in a few quid so that wouldn’t be disastrous.
