When's the last time you saw a game? You might find things have improved considerably of late.

I have the two free tickets for tomorrow's game from the player sponsorship, I cannot make it now as my son cracked his head open skiing in Austria.  PM me if interested, they are in the Arkells stand and can be collected from the county ground

People find it difficult to get too excited about games v ColU..... think it's because they only came into the FL in 56, and were then generally moderate, and have usually played to small crowds.  Then they were relegated to the Conference around that early 90's time when we were having one of our better periods.

It kind of leads to an assumption that we should be better than them.... but here's the problem, we're not.  2 wins at the CG for us in the last 10, and we're below them in the league.   It's a must win but the injury crisis just makes it more difficult, so there's no sense of anticipation....

As long as they dont defend in a phalanx we should be good for a point at least

How much are you willing to pay, to have them taken off your hands?

4.0 win, Theo x 2, Anderson and Woolery - the chances will go in tomorrow.
Then we will beat Carlisle next week, see you at Wembley.  Pint

It's all Greek to me. Wink
We could struggle if they go with a very defensive testudo formation.

The phalanx was more a Greek thing, not to be confused with the Roman testudo, which was a defensive structure. Sort of thing you need when playing Lincoln.... it amused me in the week when Exeter played at Sincil Bank, that a Grecian if making the journey could have followed the Fosse Way...certainly the longest away day in Div 4 on a continuous Roman Road.

2-0 Town.

FWIW, I don't care when a team entered the league.. my anticipation (or lack of) is not affected by this.
