Season's basically over, but quite like the idea of a trip to Cambridge tomorrow.  Will see how it feels in the morning.  Had a brilliant pre-match pub crawl there about 20 yrs ago, but couldn't name any of the pubs we visited now.

We will win 5-0 with only 5 shots all game.  I suspect we are involved in some elaborate real life game of FM, and it's like those games where you have 30 shots to 2 and manage a 1-1 draw, then win the next one 6-0 when you have no possession or chances.

Great away day. Fantastic city to drink in and a classic lower league ground. Looking forward to it.

Will win 2-0. Doughty and a defender. 600 away fans.

Some great pubs in the city centre. We drunk in the Cambridge brew pub on king street last year. Not a football pub at all mind. There is a club at the ground too.

 I recall an Easter trip to Cambridge in 86.... had we won, then promotion guaranteed, as it worked out we had to wait another game which happily was at the CG.  So for the best. It ended 1-1... an example of how difficult it is to win end of season games. We got a record Div 4 points haul, Cambridge had to apply for re-election.  David Crown was key for them, one of those lower league goal scorers, who got more than any Town player that season.... 23. Bit of an anticlimax.

 Cambridge should be OK, but will need a win to make sure.

Pre match we've all got a cross to bear in The Regal.
Tweed & corduroy today in an effort to blend in with the locals.
Any spilt beer on the brogues and I shall be frightfully upset.
Just waiting to see which of the few early morning patrons here are going to break ranks and order a pint.
On the flat whites until then.  Sad

A Town great in the opposition dugout today.

A case now of just trying to win the remaining games and see if it's enough.
No point in looking at what those above us are up to.

I was there for that. Went in a ford escort van with a load of others. Stopped in a pub near Cambridge and a removal van stopped next to us full of town.
I have a vague memory of picking up someone in Bedford in an already overcrowded van. A Mike Skinner special.

I went to that after a heavy night on the sauce. All i remember is the away end packed, and staggering across a park/field to get to the ground.

Been there 3 times and never seen us lose, also saw us win there last season on iFollow, hopefully will be watching today too.

They have lost 3 of their last 4 matches and only have 1 win in the last 8 games.

Thier last home win was on 9th Feb a run of 6 home matches.

Cambridge sit in 21st place in the table, 8 points above the relegation places with 4 games left to play. They are the 2nd lowest scorers in the league on 37 goals (lowest are Port Vale 36) and conceded 61 the 4th highest (Town have scored 53 and conceded 50).

They have lost 8 at home and only won 7 times there all season, we have equal 3rd best away form in the league with 8 wins and just 7 defeats on our travels.

Cambridge won the game at the CG 2-0 in what proved to be one of the last nails in Brown coffin, one of just 5 away wins this season for the strugglers.

Cambridge have no players with a Swindon connection but obviously have ex Town hero Calderwood as manager, in his 20 games in charge so far they have won just 7 of them and lost 9 times, a win ratio of 35% (Wellens win ratio of 39.2% from his 28 games in charge). James Dunne the only current Town player wh has played for them.

Swindon 3-0 Oldham with Anderson, Robinson and Woolf scoring in front of 4,351 with 455 Town fans there.

That was the first time I ever visited Cambridge, took the train from Liverpool St along with about another 100 Town fans, there were loads of Town fans there that day, almost half of the 3,150 crowd. We totally outplayed them but could only scramble a draw in the end. They had Tom Finney playing for them that day, yes not that one, but I bet Reg saw the original Tom Finney play Smiley
