Crawley (a) 13th and Notts County (a) 20th April
at 09:17 12 Apr 2024

Update from Crawley Town - there will be no ticket sales on the day for away supporters, so if you haven’t already, get your ticket from the Col U ticket office before 2pm today. I imagine they’ll take these to Crawley for collection, as it’s too late to post them out. We are approaching 1,000 sold already apparently.

Highly unlikely, the empty seats were all congregated in one of the West stands, and pretty much as a block. As far as I’m concerned, definitely player/ staff freebie tickets for friends and family.

Anyone know if McGeehan will be suspended again?
at 19:32 10 Apr 2024

Hadn't thought about the second yellows for his two red cards, but that would be harsh if they were counted - players could be suspended for both red cards and cumulatively yellows if that applied. The other rule is they only count in the competition they were received, but as all of Cam's were in the league, it's moot really.

Just another update via the ticket office this morning, we'd sold over 750 tickets for Crawley at that point, so with pay on the days, I'm expecting there to be about a thousand on Saturday.

That was the reason, another red card (his 3rd) would have lead to a 4 match ban and we'd lose him for most of the rest of the season. I think the next disciplinary milestone for yellow cards is a 3 match ban if you reach 15 yellows by week 38, so hopefully he's more or less safe from that?

Hatters to lose their heads in defeat to DC's blue and white army at the JCS
at 22:45 9 Apr 2024

That one was hard to take - to be honest we were much better tonight than we were against Wrexham, and against an infinitely better opponent too. But still we came up short yet again. Everyone will focus on Goodman's error, and McGeehan's penalty, and that is totally relevant, but don't overlook it was Goodman who kept us in the game before that, and McGeehan who got us back in the game after that. Just really hard to take - another game against promotion-elects, another game we showed our potential, but another game we came out with nothing. I guess that's the difference between top of the table and bottom of the table teams.

Fortunately, FGR and Grimsby both lost as well, and so another game is ticked off. Sutton and FGR have three games left, Grimsby four (one against the U's) and we have five. At present, we have to make up one point on Sutton with five games to go compared to their three.

IT'S STILL IN OUR HANDS!!!

I would imagine they were 'sold' in the sense that they weren't available to be purchased, so probably more concession tickets which had been given out but not taken up. The North Stand had netting over the front two rows as well, meaning another 200+ unavailable (not that Wrexham needed them in the end, they were still nearly 400 below the reduced North Stand capacity).

Or just phone Chris and the rest of the excellent ticket staff on 01206 755161. They’ll sort it out and post the tickets out to you - loads of time to get them delivered.

Such a shame for Wycscum, never mind. However, as meaningless as it is as a competition, it still chuckles me that Southend aren't eligible to take part.

To be honest, I spotted at least half a dozen dubious or outright illegal throw-ins yesterday, and we were just as guilty as Wrexham. This tends to be the case most games, and very rarely do we get officials willing to confront the issue.

Harsh on Noah if I’m honest, considering he only came on with ten minutes of normal time remaining. None of the squad covered themselves with any glory in the later stages of the second half. I appreciate why Read was chosen as MoM, but Akinde deserved it - won pretty much all of the balls punted up to him.

Just got back, not as soon as we'd wanted, but taking 45 minutes just to get out of the park and ride didn't help. What can I say - gutted. We deserved at least a point, but after their equaliser we lost our composure and game control for too long, and paid the price with a very soft second for Wrexham, who frankly were poor for much of the game. I said pre-match that the absolute minimum must be to not do worse than the other two, so with a +1 goal difference swing in our favour, that's a small consolation at least, but it really should have been at least a point.

LOL - saw court hearing in the context of Southend and automatically assumed HMRC. Must be nice for a change to be up against a different legal team.

Crowdwise, it’ll depend on how many travel from Wrexham (and brave the rail engineering works). They were apparently given 1,690 tickets, so with E1 and E2 closed, somewhere around 1,300+ should see us top 9k.

Ron will already have HMRC in a WhatsApp group chat, so his influence will dodge this winding up order (again), certain of that. Will they survive in the National League with another points deduction though? That's the question.

See you there Durham, and everything is crossed for Saturday - including no doubt my legs in the queue for the loo!

Edit: btw, Crewe is still on my possibility list too, depends on family matters though.
