Playing well so far...sounds like

I think they'll win today. Partly because the Bristol C side is a lot weaker on paper than I expected. Mainly because I think the lack of pressure from the stands will suit our younger players and allow them to relax a bit. Also because last season, countless sides used our plush stadium and "big club" status as a motivational tool for their players, telling them that if they can keep us out for 25-30 mins, the expectant crowd would turn on the players. None of that applies this season! Just watch our "home" form improve as a result..

Another from Twitter that gives you more idea of the "crowd" at NTFC.

Sorry, wasn't having a pop, just what I thought looking at the side. It doesn't look good enough to challenge for promotion to me, whereas I expected you to be really strong.

Last time I checked, he wasn't a football manager, prick.

Why again are we backbiting and throwing cheap insults at each other and then talking about bloody Andy Thorn on a matchday thread

Plenty of people on here would welcome a socialist republic, it's what they're driving for!

Get in there.

Hopefully one of the lads from Sixfields, NLHWC or another will describe the goal for us.

Goalie Stands on the goal line, Ball on the penalty spot, Leon Clarke runs up, kicks the ball with his right foot into the back of the net. Goal.

It's a penalty what are you hoping for?

I think were aiming for play offs, there is some very strong teams like Wolves, Pboro etc.

BCFC always struggles when we are classed as favourites, we prefer to be the underdogs.

Getting relegated was a good thing as we were able to get rid of our underperforming high earners and bring in young hungry players that suit the style of football we are trying to play.

From what I have heard today from your team sounds as if you may have a chance of survival.
