Cardboards Monday night

Recommended Posts

They are 15 home games unbeaten and cruising to the title.

 

Our midweek away records reads:

Lost 4-2

Lost 3-0

Lost 5-2

Lost 4-1

Lost 5-0

 

They've played 4 games since our last at Truro.

 

Lambs to the slaughter or a cheeky little away point?

I have had an undercover sortie over to the Sloppybox (don't worry I've had my jabs) and can report that their keeper picked up a nasty injury on Saturday (although thankfully not as bad as first feared), which will mean they will either have a young keeper or one unfamilar with the back four between the sticks on Monday.

 

On this one occasion it might be worth not employing our usual silky footballing skills and consider chucking a few balls into the box to see how the new custodian copes.

 

COYB!!

I'm going for a shock away win :o

 

Had a quick mooch on their forum and tomorrow's game has already been won by them,don't think it's worth us even turning up.

 

Most annoying is the constant repeating that we are a team of big lumps ?

 

Take out the 2 centre half's Swainey and Wildo and Jay May that leaves the other 7 outfieid players all under 6ft

 

And apparenty Charlie Taylor is 6,2 has he been standing in a grow bag of late ?

Thanks for trolling around, that was taken from some football site before he had played. it's obviously incorrect.

I must say I'm looking forward to actually seeing a game of football tomorrow night.

Well it will be your first game for 23 days but I'm undecided as to whether this situation is of advantage to City or not. On the one hand you could be lacking in match fitness and sharpness but on the other hand you will be well-rested and any knocks which your players have been forced to play with may well have now remedied themselves. Should be a great occasion with, hopefully, 1k+ in attendance producing a great atmosphere. (Hopefully, you'll find that the new covered ro-ro has helped render MP more of a football stadium than you recalled when Ricky last played there.) And the presence of our former manager can only add to the occasion! I'm sure he would like nothing better than to turn us over against the odds on our own patch. The pitch will be in reasonable condition and you'll find that our bar stocks real ale. And a reminder that drums and other musical instruments are banned from the ground under the terms of our lease with the council. Have a safe journey. If you get there before 7 you'll probably be able to park in the stadium car park otherwise there is always off-street parking.

You need to change a sentance:

Let the banter begin...........

 

I'm looking foward to tonight should be an entertaining evening we go there with no real pressure on us we may be 2nd from bottom but a win will see us climb into mid table.

 

I'm hoping the Chelmsford players have the same attitude as some of their supporters where they think they just need to turn up to win if they do they could be in for a bit of a shock.

 

I can remember going to Melbourne Park for a Play Off game a coulple of years ago when they had the same attitude :rolleyes: .

 

Come On You Blue Boys

I for one certainly don't think it will be a walkover tonight but still think we will have too much for you. Can't see a Craig Edwards side coming to MP and being anything but totally up for it. We need to ensure that we have a decent start and don't give away any silly free-kicks in our own half. We played into your hands to some extent in the first half at your place in this regard but tightened up after the break and coped comfortably.

 

I'm hoping our forward-line will surprise you tonight but not in a pleasant way. Not sure if CE was at our place on Saturday after the postponement of your game but if he was, I reckon he will be wondering how your two carthorses at the back will cope with our pace. You are perhaps in a bit of a false position at the bottom, not having played for a while, but you're finding out exactly what it takes to compete in this league. We settled quickly into the division and have stayed up there or thereabouts ever since: it's not an easy league and you need to play a bit of football if you're ever going to do well in it.

 

Fancy us by the odd goal in three tonight but wouldn't be at all surprised if it's a draw.

Fair enough maybe i was a little harsh not all of you see it as a walkover but a fair few do.

 

And we are definitely finding out what this level is all about and if you asked 99% of Ricky fans at the start of this season what would you take at the end a large response would be 4th from bottom,staying up this season is the main aim and then hopefully continue to build from there.

 

As for a draw yes please :ph34r:

I have to agree with Gary, I suspect that we will be too strong for you tonight, but we'll see. I sat near Craig and Grant on Saturday and exchanged a few words and I have no doubt they have concerns as well. Your ex lodgers have come along way since those heady days of the Ryman and those of you with any football nounce will agree. We have improved o the team that tore league Club Colchester Utd apart and struggled on a poor pitch at your place, in the dark.

 

A few Points from above, MP continues to be improved with the fans clubing and working together to now have a covered end ( we call it the ro-ro but it remains there without moving for most of the season). I'm sure that any group of non league fans coming together and getting £36k together in 18 months is no mean feat!!! When it needs moving the fans do it, not the council.

 

Our superb Supporters Club continues to raise funds for a digital score board which will be installed in the next few months. The major developements to the MP project continue with training facilities and a new plastic pitch of which wehave piority use. A new 1200 seater stand is on its way, and with thanks to the council our flood lights are now leaague two standard ( i.e you can see the ball when it gets dark!!)

 

I have read Steve's Blog and hope that Grant and Steve can pull it all together and et the ground improvements in place. It will be good to see a few familiar faces about tonight!!!
