Could this be off? Heavy rain and near 50mph winds 

If it is I don't think I'll be going but will be back for the Grimsby game.

2-1 att: 7,224 (192 away)

The forecast for Saturday is atrocious - 54mph gusts and torrential rain from noon.

I think the game will go ahead but it's going to be pretty unpleasant conditions.

If only it was against a team that brought enough to use the bank. Sounds like another game where one half we will be holding on and in the other need as many goals as possible. I donít remember a season where so many home games have been impacted by the wind.

Its every season, remember that our ground was designed as a wind tunnel to give us an advantage

Not looking forward to the walk from the station if the forecast is right,  maybe a taxi job.  Surely by now we must have mastered how to use the famous wind tunnel to our advantage,  so on that basis and assuming that the game goes ahead, a 3-1 win for me.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is off and that might for the best, it won't be a game of football.

Met Office saying not as bad as last weekend:
Paul Gundersen, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said: ďAnother spell of very wet and windy ​weather is expected for Saturday. Although Storm Dennis is currently not expected to be as severe as Ciara, disruption is still likely."

Not as bad, only marginally. 45-47mph and 90+ % chance of rain. As I said has Stevenageesque? written all over it.

Talking of flip flops, there was a guy in a pair when I popped out at lunchtime. Then I saw a guy in shorts. People are odd.
