    Time to try Haynes on the left wing. He's more direct than our 'wingers' and has an end product.

    Pick the Wembley. 11 now, stick with them through to Wembley injuries permitting, let them gel as a unit and let's see if we can salvage just something out of this car crash of a season.

    4-1 loss, he will play Burge again.

    Don't know why he doesn't play RCC in practise for Wembley too, same with Harries rather than Rawson.

    Play up sisu rovers I hope we can get a win. Even just for a bit of form to stand a chance at Wembley.

    Coventry are still rock bottom of the form table (surprise, surprise), Port Vale are 16th out of 24.
    But Port Vale have only won one away game all season.
    So, I'll predict a draw. Just cannot see us winning, maybe if we score first and then get a second, we might scrape a 2-1 win.

    Don't think it makes any difference he is just as bad.
    Just need to keep the ball in their half, then we might get a 0-0.

    It might help us keeping the ball in their half if the keeper didn't kick the ball straight out to give the other tam possession straight away.

    What's the injury situation with Tudgay, Beavon, Yakubu and Kwame?

    My favourite L1 fans (along with Swindon) not. Lowest crowd of the season will witness a 1-1 draw, or a sneaky 2-1 win (could be either way!) Agree with getting the Wembley team on the pitch for a couple of games, to try and develop a semblance of tactics/understanding.

    Well if Robbins thinks the others are unfit, he must be saying Yakubu will be ready about June. Tudgay rolled his ankle, Beavon ok (just knackered from amount of games without having previously played. Kwame - just chilling (actually, don;t know about him!)

    Port Vale could be without a win away all season, but you can be sure as shit where their first one will come from regardless...

    It may as well be this one we win, as it has gotta come soon-ish.

    A league double! Gosh am I dreaming, the ignominy of the port Vale fans where the bottom of the table team beats you twice in the same relegation season. If that happens I will have £20 on Port Vale to be relegated next season

    RCC
    Haynes
    Harries
    Willis
    Kelly-Evans
    Bigiramana
    Reilly
    G. Thomas
    Jones
    Reid
    Ponticelli

    That would be my ideal line up however I think he will go for

    Burge
    Willis Turnbull Clarke Stokes
    Bigi Stevenson
    Jones Reilly
    Beavon Tudgay

    Going for a 0-0 draw, improvement but not much

    Must win for us as well (As a Vale fan) to get out of the relegation zone, we are a pretty inconsistent side and playing away (won one away game this season) even though your side is rock bottom, I'd gladly take a draw.

    If you don't win I'd be worried. Unless it's a 0-0 and we play 7 in defence.

    If I was Robins I would have three bags with defenders, midfielders and strikers written on them. Put all the players name on a bit on paper and put them in the appropriate bag. Choose a team at random and include U23 and some of the u18 squad. The only name that shouldn't be picked at random is RCC. He should be picked as a matter of course. Let's see how we do then, we certainly can't do any worse than the "first choice" team.

    MR will announce tonight that the club has put all the supporters names in a hat and the lucky ones drawn will be registered with the FL to play. They will then show the "real players" what the club means and what they should give for the shirt by winning 5-0.

    Any team that doesn't beat us at the minute deserves to be relegated with us.

    If we can get to the 75th minute without conceding, I think we will sneak a 1-0 win

    We need to win this just to show we can score because I can't see us getting anything the weekend.
