Exeter away tomorrow which is incredibly tough and somewhere we always seem to lose.

Ordinarily I'd say a point would be a good result, but given the number of draws we've had recently it will feel insufficient I think. All well and good being unbeaten for so long, but drawing against the likes of Crawley, Morecambe and Stevenage recently means that we can't then also keep drawing against the teams in and around it, too.

It was a really decent game last month between two good sides, but I think we'll probably set up to play for a draw tomorrow and it won't be as nice as the other week. Think the unbeaten run will come to an end.

I think your boys will make it very difficult for us tomorrow and, as you say, you’re there wasn’t much between us a few weeks ago.

It’s a shame Dickenson isn’t available to play as it would have been good to see him against his former club. It’s possible Joel Randall, who’s an upcoming academy player that’s impressed of late, will take his place.

I’d also be keen for Ajose to start but it would be harsh to drop Lee Martin.

Should be a decent crowd, perhaps near to 5k. It’s my first game for almost 2 months so I can’t wait!

Fancy it may be 1-1.

Morecambe away for us and they'll beat us like they always do. We did win there 4-2 once back in 2015 which was, iirc, Derry the clown's first win as a U's manager. Tbf to the buffoon, that away showing was so pleasing to watch that we got a little carried away and every single U's was looking to the future with optimism as things were on the up. Or so it seemed at the time :ffs:

Morecambe 2 Camb 0. I can only apologise in advance to the Carlisle, Macc and Orient fans. Sorry.

Are there any Stevenage fans on here, if so I would be interested in their view of the game tomorrow?
Not sure if there are but it must be a game that’s tricky to predict. They won 4-0 away last week, then kept the same team for our game with them on Tuesday and we comfortably beat them. Westley will surely get a reaction from them but I can’t see Argyle failing to get 3 points.

Thanks moomin. Typical bottom of the table inconsistency then. Could be a banana skin for us in a month when we are playing loads of games.

By the way, I only found out what a moomin was when I read my Guardian a few weeks ago. A lady had quite a niche fetish involving her man dressed up as a moomin! So I had to look up what said moomin was. Are you a middle aged female gruniad reader?

We have sold 1,195 for tomorrow, though it sounds like getting there by public transport will be nightmare - I read it will take two hours from Kings X.

Pretty sure you should be including your good selves in that apology. You’re dropping like a stone.

God knows what us and Newport will conjur up this time, the last meeting a month ago was painful enough!
I will take an excruciating 0-0.

It involves lots of latex and professional sewing skills! It was a heartening, but ultimately sad story. She found herself having the best sex of her life in her fifties, but sadly he died after three years. I think she was hoping for someone with the same “interests”.

I can’t get the link but look on YouTube for the programme notes from Graham Westley on their game with us today. Forget that we feature, it is just a really interesting insight to how a manager is approaching things, and his public ethos of how they are going to get out of the mire. It is about six minutes, but really worth a watch.

He had those v us a couple of weeks ago with his white board... quite weird to see a manager discussing it openly pre game!

I got the sense that the audience was Stevenage fans, in particular to tell them to be vocal in supporting the team. The unity in strength sounds rather Stalinist collectivism

You won't get anywhere from Kings Cross this weekend, there's no trains in and out of there.

We'll see the strength of his approach once he's finished the dekulakisation of the squad, no likelihood of a goal famine, his five year plan to reach the Championship will be an astounding success.

Van Veen starts which is huge for us. Jordan Gabriel starts as well, signed him yesterday. Will be interesting how he deals with Charlie Kirk as he tore Sutton apart at Crewe, need to contain him.

We have played pretty well, no better than against FGR in the first half which was also 2-0.

Bradford, like FGR have been absolutely awful, been defending set pieces like Mansfield.

FGR won 4-3 so not all hope is gone.
