IC can use his bench because it is strong and wouldnít weaken the team.  Iíve long thought the FA Cup is seen as second rate by the big clubs, but outside the top two divisions, and throughout non-league, it is important as a money-spinner.  Way back the club reached the league clubs regularly, and this must be the best chance for years to do it again.  Itís all great progress if we get a ďplum drawĒ, and would bring income needed for continued progress...

We all see things differently, but I thought the ref had a good game.  In these wrestling situations it is very difficult for any ref to see who the villain was.  Wrestling is illegal, and someone gets the blame.  I didnít think either player was the culprit, particularly, although they both were !  But... if there was an elbow, the ref had no choice, although I didnít see one.  I think McCauley annoyed the ref 10 minutes before when he obstructed on the edge of the Penalty Area.  Letís hope the the tariff is minimal.

Super gutsy performance, and three marvellous goals.  All three were cracking shots.  Weíve got goals all over the team, and have a very strong bench which I hope donít lose patience.  Any changes wonít weaken the side whatsoever.  But 1203 ?  Good crowd, but surely we must soon start heading for double that - it would certainly be deserved...

Good point, Mallard, re Adam M and Boston U last season.

B & G, if he isnít wanted at Boston, is he good enough for us, at our current standard ?  And considering we have Kelly, plus Payne and Carey.....

Whatever is best for Adam, then the club, in that order.  But all players need to think over ďupwardĒ moves carefully, because so many swop being popular and successful at one club, only to find themselves as bit-part players at a higher club.  Drinkwaterís move from Leicester captain to Chelsea reserves is a case in point, or, closer to home, Cameron Norman...

Probably the toughest game so far- not on the NameĒ of the club, but on current form.  Have to go for the throat, IMHO !  Attack best form of defence, then virtually everybody behind the ball when they get it.  Everyone is playing so well, but special mention for Clunan who continues to break up their moves, and often start ours.....

Agreed, Blue Moon.... the Marriott rumours are worrying.  Kelly looked good yesterday, and certainly good enough for a first choice somewhere, albeit in this very competitive squad. He would definitely be there, in my book, if we were unlucky enough to to lose our top scorer.  Letís cross a couple of fingers.  Surprised there is not more conjecture or actual news on the subject, but hopefully Iím over-blowing it......

Gash having a very good start - impressive on ground and in the air.  But I think Saunders is completely wrong to say donít bother with football, just get it to him.  Teams that play nothing but crosses or humps forward usually finish about 17th ,with people saying how well they fought and what character they showed !  SC and the team thoroughly deserve a good crowd today - essential really, or there isnít a connection between playing and doing fantastically well and pulling in the fans....

A thousand ?  We should be half-way to doubling that by now....  We have a healthy increase on last year, but are capable of many National League top division gates.  Steven Cleeve serves to see it, and the team deserve to hear it !......

Neither side looked unbeatable, and both had bad results at the weekend.  Kl probably favourites, but a bit early to be blasť...  Fine ground Altrincham have there.....

Another excellent result at Farsley.  Now for Darlington on Saturday.  Please have a word with all pals, relations, boyfriends, girlfriends, .etc., to come to the game..  we must be sending shockwaves to the league with this amazing start, but now is surely the time to shock many of our opponent clubs with a demo of the sort of crowd we can pull.  After all - all these games should now be as big a pull as the Slough game was.....

Didnít stay for 2nd half as the late start messed up evening plans.  But, have to agree with WestLynn... Curzon looked very slick for much of the first half, and until the penalty looked well capable of giving us a bit of a tanking.  However, glad to read how well the team played 2nd half, and not a surprise as so good so far this season.  Very disappointed with the gate, but those sort of days can increase or decrease an attendance.  Please keep your interest despite the gates, SC - youíve done a great job.

We need the same positivity that the team showed in the first half at Telford.  Attacking midfielders to keep the opponents back in their half most of the time.  We donít need 3 Centre-halves, because defenders donít provide the best defence, IMHO.  The whole team are defenders if they get behind the ball when necessary, then they can break quickly - on the ground.  They will have quick attackers too, so keep them back as much as possible. COYL.......

It would be nice to gain more of an image nationally now that we are making quite impressive progress.  If eventually we are shown on TV, even on Anglia, we would arouse more curiosity and interest if we had more terrace and some cover behind at least one goal.  Very few clubs at our new level are lacking in that area.
