The paper are never going to see that with font that small :roll:

Or at the bottom of the page...

I’m looking forward to this one - I think it’ll be a good marker of where we are as a team. Stoke are more than beatable but have some decent players knocking about. Allen will be a miss though

I’m guessing it’ll be the same team - possibly Obita back in. I think Obita is clearly Bowen’s favoured LB but obvs the injuries are holding him back

Also starting to think this *might* be the last time we get to see the boys at home for a while so hopefully they’ll sign off on a good note if it is

If he gets picked this time at least three of us can claim credit.

The game now likely (and ridiculously) will be played behind closed doors.

I wonder if closed doors would help our home form. A bit less pressure for players; we can take our away game approach.

Conversely, teams may be more comfortable sitting back and frustrating us when we're away.

I think they should let that guy with the drum in. Only him. Everyone would hate us.

What pressure? We are hardly Millwall are we? Our crowd largely sit on their hands and stay quiet, we are rarely on top of the players.

I don't understand why our players feel pressure at home, but they clearly do. On that basis, I'd advise our players not to move to a bigger club gunning for promotion.
