Will we have a team that can actually do ok against a very good team? Wont be much preparation with all the players walking at present.

I see nothing but a massacre here as morale must be extremely low, one thing is for sure 100% effort of the pitch for the lads.

Att: 1700 (500 away)

After the worst fortnight of the club definitely in my lifetime, I expect this game to be something of an afterthought. Sadly, if a predicted mauling does happen, it will be broadcast to a lot more people than we'd want. However, strangely in situations like these the players can be galvanised and hopefully this could be the case. It's important to stay hopeful so with that in mind.....I'm only predicting a 3-0 defeat.

Starting XI (providing no more jump ship): Cousins, Howells, N'Gala, Robson, Nunn, Sparkes, Boucaud, Howell, Whitely, Okenabirhie, Cheek

We really need those players who remain to show some character. We still have some good players but recently have allowed ourselves to be rolled over too easily by bad sides.

I know they may be thinking they can't be bothered especially if they think their wages aren't guaranteed and future uncertain but surely they have professional pride and like playing for the sake of playing rather than just as a job. Let's have a proper daggers performance even if we get beat.

I've backed Aldershot heavily.

Here's an idea. People who like a bet with their spare cash... put your maximum stake on shots and if the bet comes in, keep the winnings aside for any future fundraising we might need.

Can't see how anything other than a very heavy defeat is at all possible.Ferrier will be missed the most. Cheek and Corey gotta step up if they dont step out. Ling was much improved but his defending was mediocre, going forward he was great. Technically we still have the ability but if were selling on the hour every hour and morale is as low as I'd expect this is gonna be awful.

I'm going more because it could turn out a rather historic day in our story.

The Aldershot 2/1 was always gonna be value as the price was going to plummet.

Where are the rumours about Cheek possibly being gone? Haven’t seen anything on twitter myself?

You'll hear soon enough, doubt he will be the last.

Personally some of this team weren't worth a cup of cold piss, before Christmas, so if they want to leave then **** em.
I'd rather a kid on half their wages giving his all than someone who thinks they're the next messi not even trying.
This club will survive, just. And with a bit of luck it'll bounce back, you never know what's round the corner and as for Glynn supposedly having his nose put out of joint by some fans with flags then bollocks to him as well.
If that's the only thing that can make him rush for the exit sign, then I think he's done well, there's far more important things in life to worry about.
I'm sure during his years in business he's had to deal with far more than a few flags. Absolute tosh.

probably stay of clear of this one, got done big time before, with dover away, what a win out the blue that was, dover won something like 6-0 game before, whilst we lost 4-0 or something.

if we play with the team digger the dog mentioned it may be a closer game than people think.
