Our players haven't been paid, a week after they should have been and after they were promised payment today, our club doctor has been relieved of his duties, unbeknown to him, the FA are threatening to fine players or allow the club to sack them if they dare strike on Saturday and the two players who showed Danny Webb support after he walked after an argument with Francesco Becchetti have mysteriously picked up "injuries".

Cambridge 3-0 Orient.

Hope the FA fold, it's their fault that Orient are in this mess for allowing Becchetti to purchase them in the first place. It's all well and good sitting high and mighty now that the damage has been done.

I really want the players to strike. The FA would have to act, it forces their hand and after the vote of no confidence by the government, humiliates them further and grabs headlines. 

No one could envisage this when he went to buy the club and I don't blame the FA for that because at the time, Becchetti's business record then wasn't that bad then. What does get my back up is that neither the FA or Football League have intervened, requested meetings or explanations of what has ensued in the past year, especially when it comes to paying people.

Hard game and I wouldn't be surprised if we dropped points. Would be nice if Brighton and Huddersfield could drop points to take a bit pressure off but if they both win then we have to avoid defeat as a minimum.

Thankfully we are set up very well away from home and it could work in our favour that's Sheff Wed need points to make it into the play offs. If we pick up 4 points out of our next two then we are all but promoted I feel.

As a side note Sheff Wed are a joke, they've given everyone 4,500 tickets this season but for some reason only gave us 3,100. Cunts.

We asked and you gave us 6,000. I am going down for it.

That's what I heard regarding the 6,000. Should be a good night, especially as it's our last home game of the season.

Back on topic, will be a difficult match against Brentford and will need a good performance to get something from this. Going for 1-1.

I thought we only got 3000 for Cardiff? 

6000 on a Friday night? I feel a pitch invasion coming on :ph34r:

Aye defo 6k according to nufc.com, if we were to seal promotion or the league title that night there will definitely be people on the pitch.

Brighton up now, those are the type of games that get you promoted when you hold out last 20 minutes under all kind of pressure. 

Tough one for Newcastle today, Wednesday a bit unpredictable but on their day are very capable - they need points too.

Massive game for us now after two defeats. Can't afford to be wobbling when it comes to the crunch. Preston are playing well and will be eyeing up a late move for the playoff's themselves. Expect a really tough game today. Can only see a draw for us but hope we can nick it.

Three points desperately needed today, just hope the last two performances haven't knocked the confidence gained from the seven before those. A win and we head towards the unspeakably colossal games away at Forest and at home to Bristol City over Easter on a bit of momentum, if we go in there on the back of three defeats we are in trouble. If we can get six points minimum from these three I fancy our chances. Wolves away, Villa at home and Brentford away make up our final three, and I honestly doubt we can scrape more than four points from that lot. Now or never for Rovers. I could do without playing Rochdale and Walsall next season.
