2000 eh! Strange, a poor deluded soul, who's son plays rugby with my boy, told me there were 3,500 at Rochdale yesterday. So only 1,500 locked out, quite a drop in travelling numbers. You'd have thought the usual 25,000 would have gone up for this one! 

That’s gone up since Joey said 3000 on Saturday during his Radio Bristol interview! COYR

Official figure on the day was 2005. You know how it goes with them, as time goes by, the number slowly creeps up.  This time, it seems they’ve added 1500 in the space of a single day. Today it will be 5000, and by the time next Saturday comes it will be five figures!

TBF, it was a passing comment when out with a mate yesterday, the crowd was 4,640 which seems about 2k above their norm, so it fits. 
3,500 would mean that Rochdale had half their recent gates, so ..

Today

Salford City V Mansfield Town

Port Vale V Newport County

Saturday

 

Barrow V Northampton Town

Bradford City V Carlisle United

  🤡 :gasmask:      V Scunthorpe United

Exeter City V Port Vale

Harrogate Town V Sutton United

Leyton Orient V Tranmere Rovers

Mansfield Town V Forest Green Rovers

Walsall V Swindon Town

Ignoring how everyone wants the Squatters to miss out, obviously. Saturday could be interesting
4 teams going for the last auto spot.
Realistically 4 teams going for the last Playoff spot ( Port Vale's GD should see them safely in)

I remember when Holloway managed to get them to fall apart, from looking like coasting to promotion, to missing the Playoffs. I wonder if the WifeBeater can do the same.

Last game of the season and we beat PNE at home and they blew it. It was the start of our affinity with the PNE fans after we both celebrated on the pitch and discovered that they despised the s*gs as much as we do!

Yep, but can get Automatic. Poorly worded by me, I meant miss out on Promotion.

It is a strange thing how they feel the need to make themselves look bigger than they actually are. It's a bit like small dogs yapping and growling at bigger dogs, or the way cats will arch their backs to make themselves look more menacing.

I am not suggesting by the way that gasheads are as evolved as dogs and cats, that would be silly. :)

Yes and if Port Vale do it. It will be their old manager come back to haunt them  Shame that their captain Tom Conlan is out after achilles surgery.

If Port Vale do get the automatic spot over us, so be it, I would not begrudge Darrell Clarke some success this season.

Oh no; a conspiracy theory. Rovers' lawyers already being consulted?

That cannot be true because Rovers are PNE's fans second favourite team. 😉

Having watched the secon half of the Mansfield game and the first half of the Port Vale game, I conclude this must be the poorest League Two for many years. It's like watching the walking dead. Some of the players look like they're wearing the left boot on their right foot and vice versa. Mpst of tem can't seem to kick, pass or shoot straight to save their lives.

The standard and skill levels on display at the Sunday league games I have seen recently was a lot better than this rubbish.

Now I can see why Rovers managed to force themselves into contention. The myth that Bardumb is a miracle-worker is just that ... a myth,

I reckon at least two of the teams going up will come straight back down.
