    At Coombe Abbey on Friday night as we know. Been told that there may be one or two surprises too!

    It’s all hush hush - probably someone from Sisu going to show up - maybe!

    I hope it's Orange Ken making a return. Will be like a new signing!

    He could bring out a troupe of can can dancers led by Donald trump wearing the brown away kit and I still wouldn't be as taken aback as I was by yesterday's performance.

    An evening with Mark Robins?

    Does he sing show tunes and do magic tricks or is it just him sniffing and mumbling into a mic about the virtues of playing out from the back?

    Should be a good evening for all:

    Kyle Mcfadzean in the stocks - 3 water sponges for a quid.
    Dom Hyam manning the 'catch a rat'.
    Marosi will perform some mime artistry under his stage name Morose.
    There will also be Sniffer dogs - 5 sniffs for a quid or, if you want the dog to sniff you, 3 sniffs for a quid.
    Also still 4 spots left to compete in the sack race but Robins is expected to win that because his sack is in a taxi.
    Bakoyoko and Biamou going head to head in the donkey derby both chasing the O'Hare.
    Jodi Jones is on tombola duty where you can win a variety of CCFC related products including 7 different ACLs donated by various team members.
    Lee Burge is coming back for a guest appearance in 'Beat the Goalie'. Sticks and lead piping will be supplied.
    Kastaneer will be in charge of the giant slip n slide.
    Dabo's on the 'roll a penny'.
    Mason's got a cake stand.
    Liam Kelly will be doing the face painting.

    Would be very surprised if it was that.

    3rd kit would be a good shout. Or maybe a contract extension.

    Hopefully not Fisher turning up to bang on about a new stadium.

    yeah I booked a ticket today. Disappointed about a third kit though! Just another way of getting more dosh out of fans! I didn’t bother last year and doubt I will this year either.

    I would only buy a shirt if the price wasn't exorbitant and was made of cotton instead of stinky material...count me out

    Am sure I am in the minority here, but couldn’t care less about what colour a kit we will hardly play in will be..

    It can’t be a financial decision ?. Imagine the time and meetings to agree it for a couple of hundred people to buy it ?

    Is this event still scheduled for Coombe Abbey? or has it been switched to Stoke, Barnsley, Sunderland, Reading or Manchester?

    I assume the jobs he has been linked to will be mentioned? Hope he is unequivocal in his commitment to CCFC

    Can't make Friday night, so if there's a Q and A can someone please ask Mark Robins why he only plays one striker upfront.

    I think we need to ask him about the real Madrid / Barca link too...

    Of course the likelihood of him going to a league 1 or championship club is the same as a CL club.
    I would just like to hear him 're affirm his commitment to the club. For peace if mind as much as anything, we don't need mid season instability.
    Logically the fact he is doing this kind of thing suggests he is committed to the cause.

    That's easy, it's because we only have one striker
