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.

tough game for us as they'll be up for it it's literally up the road and they're all bouncing about the Villa coming to town

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.

I heard you wanted 10,000 initially for our game. O.o

Whether that's true or not I don't know.

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.

That explains why it is down to 0 points. I think we will struggle to take 6k there unless it looks like being the game we go up.

If it was on Saturday, you'd sell out easily.

It's a long way down there on a Friday night like, not sure there'll be 6k going.

Brighton eventually find a way through QPR's resolute defence and Murray has loads of time to pick his spot. 0-1.

and now it's 2-0 after a brilliant free-kick from Pocognoli. In off the bar.

not over yet though as QPR get a goal back through Matt Smith. About 20 mins left in this one. 1-2.

Gotta hope we beat Cardiff, we've been on a good run recently and if we're building to a promotion chase next season then we've got to be winning a game like this.

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.

No Hayden or Passback so we have no choice but to play an attacking line up from start to finish 

Sheff Weds 3-0 then.

Apparently we will only have two players in the whole matchday squad today that are over the age of 21 because most players have picked up "injuries".

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.
