Red unalerts 0 Green without envy 5
More fishermen than friends
No room to park a tractor in the car park
Weak tea (like the manequins management) and no cider on sale in the ground
Only thing we need scone is the dummy
Calls of Dummy Out ignored by the manequin and his sidekick
The library empties early as the green sprout up the league whilst the red faces look tired and beaten
The invisible man reveals himself as Reggie
People will complain the club wouldnt accept the new pound coin and the certain ticket queue delayed them see the manequin take his seat in the dug out aka a rare event i.e. the manager in motion

Well Plymouth slipped up today as well.

Clearly we will need to make a change in defence. To be honest I can't see us getting much.

If we get a point from this one, I'll be well happy.

Crawley 0 Plymouth 2

We'll start off well, contain them and play a defensive game, but eventually our concentration will falter and we'll gift them a goal and then they'll cruise to a win with us showing no ambition to get back into the game.

The usual home performance.

Whatever the result it will be the Lone Ranger Collins up front and the rest of the team getting in each others way.

Shades of Custer's Last Stand or the Alamo.

Crawley to win 1-0. Crowd 2500 most of which will be shocked but happy with the points. Bradley to get lots of friendly ex-player abuse.

An interesting mix of predictions there.

I nearly spat out my coffee though at the mention of Town 'containing them and playing a defensive game'... because that's exactly how WE'LL play. If we both of us do it then it'll be a massive borefest of a game.

Our system won't change, Adams is wedded to a 4-5-1 system that allows the opposition possession and tries to pick them off at a set piece or a break away. He tries to sell it to us as being an adaptable 4-3-3 but rarely does it ever look like that.

It does work a treat away from home, we are very good when teams attack us. Trouble is for us he employs the self same tactic and mindset at home, where teams rarely come to attack us. That is why we have a much better away record than home record.

The first goal is key, if we score it we'll sit back and contain you even more and will probably win. If you score it we'll have to change things around and we're not that good at changing our approach, you'll probably win.

Going forward we have pace on both wings and in Graham Carey the ability to hurt opposition from set pieces. At the back though we're prone to individual errors just the same as everyone else.

One notable exception has been Sonny Bradley. I read with interest in the summer your assessments of his ability and the consensus was he was always prone to at least one 'gaff' a game. Well he hasn't shown that for us, he's been an absolute rock, the general consensus from us is he's a shoe-in for player of the season.

Looking forward to it, the weather is set fair and there will be a very good turnout from the Green Army with just two more wins to guarantee promotion, hopefully Saturday and then live on TV at Fratton Park next Friday Cool

This seems to be our preferred tactics at the moment. We're very good at it Confused

Really pleased to hear that about Sonny. He was never quite the same player once we made him captain. Glad he's a star down there for you guys. He'll probably score the winner now.....

A defeat and the 2nd largest away following of the season in a crowd of around 3000!
