Hopefully it will be Turner.

Fleetwood use Bolger very effectively. They like to create as much room as possible for by loading their players on one side of the box and delivering the ball to the other side. Bolger then has room to attack the ball and head it back across the 6 yard area to the rest of this team who, rather than waiting to see if it is worth following up on, Have already made good attacking runs... The other plus point is it takes the pressure off the kicker as he has a lot bigger area to aim for rather than our crowded 'bus queue'

Difficult to defend against, as we witnessed for their late equaliser up at Fleetwood. Should be a good battle today.

I thought we won 4-2 away at Fleetwood rather than them getting a late equaliser?

So apart from hoping we lose so you can boo the players, hoping the manager gets the sack and hoping for a small and toxic crowd......Is there anything you might actually enjoy in some slight way today ?

Where has he said he hopes for a small crowd? He hasn't..

Essex of course!
Doesn't matter which two we have up front, we'll still boot it down the middle and watch there two BIG centre backs head it back.

Would like to see Wabo given a go but given the circumstances, I doubt he will.

No trains to Prittlewell today and looks like the bus doesn't stop there either according to the timetable. Not so Greater Anglia.

Bolger anytime goalscorer seems a good bet. Last week an O'Stool and Revs anytime goalscorer would have paid a decent return.

Getting quite up for this game, now.

There's a bit of spice with the recent goings on and I'd love to see the players prove they want this club to succeed, which I am sure they do anyway.

Bring it on! .. COYB! :happy:

That's a shame.

The day I feel like that about watching my team, I'd walk away, if I'm honest.

Despite everything that's going on, there's always the anticipation of the next game for me. That's what the football drug is. We know it's probably done us no good over the years, but it's hard to imagine being without it for too long.

Fleetwood will have both eyes on their big FA Cup match on Tuesday. We should win easily this afternoon.

I hope.

I wish someone else would walk away."Truth be known"

I was just going to post to see how you got on at the Roots Hall dentist, this afternoon!

Yep, you called it right, TBF.
