    Whisky and a mallet? I've opted for the cinema and captain America with a super sized Coke/ popcorn combo. Not working so far!

    Still not working, and yes we have to win. We've been around the playoffs for an age, at times played good football so let's hope.
    As said elsewhere, could be a very costly admin error for Nuneaton!

    Going to be a long long day. I feel dreadful already.

    After the hope (done that all week) comes the fear (currently doing that) and after lots of restless thought, I'm sticking with the previous statement of if we can't beat Corby (respect given) then we don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

    Excellent 1st half. Just started taking foot off gas. Need to keep that foot on Corby's neck in the second half.

    My forecast of 3-0 half time score was correct--thank you football gods--as things stand we will play Fylde in play-offs and Boston will face Ferriby. 45 mins to go--let's get to 5-0

    So there we have it--4th place finish--best ever--Well done TOWN.
    A decisive 5-0 victory will mean we play Fylde in the play -offs and Boston will play Ferriby.

    BRING. IT. ON.

    See Y'All on Wednesday!!!

    Wow! I'll tell you something, 3 goals in 17 minutes sure helps to calm the nerves. Thought everyone was excellent. Thewlis is so skillful, just needs a finishing touch. And hats off to Simon as well. I was a doubter but he has done the business this season

    National North looking pretty tasty next season: Darlington, Salford, Halifax, Alty plus three of the play off teams. Possibly us or maybe it will be Town v York City. Either way... happy days.

    Need to write this season down as a success, both in terms of league position, predominant playing style and player recruitment and development.
    Also a success off the pitch with vibrant fan base and plenty of ideas to take forward.
    What happens in the playoffs is anyone's guess but we've as good a chance as the other 3 teams.
    It's not always the destination that's important, sometimes it's the journey taken, and feel that we have learnt a lot about ourselves in terms of confidence and spirit.
    That said, let's stuff flyde on Wednesday so the return leg is a mere paper exercise!

    You are right surplus. I obviously want us to win the play offs but if we fail (3 in 4 chance), this has still been s.great season. Attendance at first Saturday home game 375. today 1025, never thought I'd see it. We now for the first time (in my view), seem to be really part of the town. Lots to be proud of, come what may. But, as you say, let's stuff Fylde on Wednesday!

    My optimistic take on recent performances .... We can beat fylde if we play it on the floor like we did today.
    Boston looked worse than us when we played them 2 weeks ago but may have something more up their sleeves not showing In that game. Into playoffs Boston have won 5 out of 6 with a draw against us - so the form team.
    IMHO we will beat fylde and Boston will beat N Ferriby then the final - down at our place - is up for grabs. If so -twill be a fantastic atmosphere with probably over 2k attendance.
    Town in with a v real chance of playing the likes of Big teams like Grimsby, Wrexham, Chester and Derby rivals York next season- some home atmospheres. However we'll need some new players if we get there but let's get there first, that's for another strand.

    Well I've said it all season with the quality of our squad, we would make the play offs and we we have.Now is the time for each player to raise there game and step up to the mark.I really think with a full strength team we can beat any team on our day in this league.My big worry is with Lewis struggling Joe is IMO is not a right back.Going forward great pace ,super cross yet, his defending is poor.Keep him on the wing.
    Burrell,might be a midfielder but I really think he would make a great right back.
    Any way lets enjoy whats been a great campaign and season.I know S W has had is critics,but you have to give the guy massive credit,great achievement and its not all over yet.
    Well Done !!!
