    The run-in

    I was struck by a Staffordshire news report that said Port Vale still had to play Cheltenham, Burton and Northampton in their last 9 games and I thought it might be worth checking out the respective run-ins of the promotion/play-off rivals who are currently above us. I don't think we'll catch...

    Port Vale v Southend

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01rc0fn/The_Football_League_Show_2012_2013_09_03_2013/ 57:24 Well taken pen from SC & nice finish from Britt, but another soft goal against in my opinion.

    Us v Exeter over next three games

    Next three games are crucial now that we got that huge win against Vale. 5 points off Exeter on 59 points. Our games: H v Wimbledon H v Torquay H v Plymouth 3 teams in the bottom 4. No reason why we shouldn't win all three. Exeter: H v Gillingham (Best away record in the league) H v...

    Pre-Match Thread Port Vale

    A tough tough game for us today but Vale have been poor lately with only 1 win in 6. Personally I'd take a point today but anything more would be a bonus. So I'm going for a 1-1 draw today. Coyb. Smith Clohessy - Cresswell - Prosser - Straker Hurst - Lund - Spillane - Mayor Corr -...

Two outstanding predictions so far are from: Chapperzuk who thinks we will draw 1-1 with Port Vale with SMITH getting...
  7. Ref Watch ..... Port Vale away

    The referee for tomorrow's tough looking game at Port Vale is Darren Sheldrake from Kingston in Surrey who is in his fourth year as a Football League referee. Our recent record at Port Vale is good with 2 wins and a draw in our last three. However prior to those you have to look back some...

    Miliband's 10p tax rate proposals

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-21453444 This is an interesting one. Presumably Ed. was anticipating it might figure in Boy George's March budget. In any case it makes quite a nice Valentine's day gift to the voters of Eastleigh, rather undercuts the Lib/Dem's own mansion tax proposals...

    Five games in february

    When Luggy spoke about our JPT first-leg at Orient, he talked about the need to stay in the tie. Well, one could well speak of our next five league fixtures in February as games to keep our automatic promotion hopes alive. A series of poor results and we could find ourselves fighting just to be...
  14. Ref Watch ....... Oxford

    Tomorrow's referee needs little introduction; he is the youthful looking Gavin Ward from Oxted in Surrey. His most recent Southend match was one of his better ones, taking charge of the entertaining home 0-0 with Port Vale earlier this season with 1 caution to us and 2 to them. Before that his...
  15. Ref Watch ..... Cup replay Brentford

    As we look to improve on a poor recent record at Griffin Park (no win for over 22 years) the man in charge of tomorrow's replay, weather permitting, is the shaven-headed 41 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, on the human resources side, he began refereeing in...
  16. Ref Watch ....... Exeter away

    Tomorrow's referee is, in theory, the best referee outside the SG. It is 6th year referee, Roger East from Salisbury. He has been given 4 Premiership matches this season. He is a familiar and distinctive figure to most of us as he did both the televised game at Gillingham (2 yellows and three...
