Praying I expect - as am I but for the mighty Gulls.

Bazzer the Gull... hope you're there tonight. Enjoy the match. I'll be lying on the settee listening to match commentary, nnnnnervous. Looking forward.

If you are going, sorry, but I think with no fit forwards, and 4-5 players out, we'll be going for the draw. Unlike us now, but no alternative. Knill Out! Oh, he's gone  ;)

Epic encounter with winner at the death inspiring hopes of the great escape. Euphoria in excess. Salient points:-
1. Bury lacking firepower up front - had one chance all game which they took the rest was off target. Ditto Torquay though we had two chances. To be fair our opener was extremely well worked.
2. Ref liked his yellow card - very free and easy with it and poor overall.
3. The first 20 minutes from the Bury keeper was highly amusing - he lost the plot and with Charles C on his back speculation was rife that the C stood for Chaplin.
4. Lowest gate of the season 1,700ish with 74 Bury fans.
5. Tension amongst the home fans, very, very nervous for obvious reasons especially after Bury equalised.
6. The real ale in Boots and Laces actually was spot on for once.
7. Torquay played with real spirit which was great to see but keeping up that intensity for 90 minutes is nigh on impossible and we need a striker or two to get the goals we need together with the endeavour.
8. A home game last Tuesday, beat Rochdale 2 -1, a game tonight and Newport at home on Saturday stretches the finances of Gulls fans - Torbay is anything but affluent.
9. Hope springs eternal.
10. Come on you Gulls!!!!
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense

Been our problem for some time.

2. Ref liked his yellow card - very free and easy with it and poor overall.

That's Div 4 refs for you!

3. The first 20 minutes from the Bury keeper was highly amusing - he lost the plot and with Charles C on his back speculation was rife that the C stood for Chaplin.

The most bizarre managerial decision in all my years watching BFC. Jensen dropped for a clown. Singapore betting ring methinks

4. Lowest gate of the season 1,700ish with 74 Bury fans.

My brother was one of the 74. There's always a Woolfe at a Bury match, no matter where. Pity Tues night after a run of long away trips otherwise 300-400 ish would have been on.

5. Tension amongst the home fans, very, very nervous for obvious reasons especially after Bury equalised.

Bazzer - I know what you mean

6. The real ale in Boots and Laces actually was spot on for once.

Can't comment I'm afraid.

7. Torquay played with real spirit which was great to see but keeping up that intensity for 90 minutes is nigh on impossible and we need a striker or two to get the goals we need together with the endeavour.

Credit to Torquay. Hope you stay up. We'll meet up next season hopefully

8. A home game last Tuesday, beat Rochdale 2 -1, a game tonight and Newport at home on Saturday stretches the finances of Gulls fans - Torbay is anything but affluent.

Neither's piggin' Salford which is part of Greater Bury (speak to Mike M)

9. Hope springs eternal.

Yeppp!!

10. Come on you Gulls!!!!

C'mon Bury.. C'mon Bury.. C'mon Bury..  (the only song we sing)

Nice one - enjoy (Is that applicable here?) the rest of the season.

I think there's a conspiracy going on against Bury Football Club.

Yesterday, the football league had us playing Dagenham and Redbridge.

We can't beat one team at the moment. What chance did we have against two?

The whole thing is rigged to make us suffer Rob.

..I saw Gloucester play at D&R in the Beezer Homes league, we lost 2-0. Didn't like the ground..

D&R have obviously moved up, Gloucester on the other hand..

And what happens when Dagenham and Redbridge play Rushden and Diamonds.  44 players on the pitch, not to mention a ref and two assistant refs plus the six or seven subs on each team which can be named, plus coaching staff etc etc. Jeez, they'll need all of Hackney Marshes just for one game!!

That is nothing I saw Brighton hove Albion take on West Bromwich Albion once and there were more on the pitch than in the crowd.

And Greater Bury are down here in Newport tomorrow (Tue).

C'mon Mr woolfe, your prediction?

As Newport are a County, I can't see Bury, who do not even appear to be a Town, getting anything down by here.

Correct, Mr M. Newport away. The first fixture I looked for when the fixtures came out, which due to those circumstances, Mr Leonard talks (sings?) of, very sadly cancelled.

Forecast? A draw, 0-0 or 1-1.

If we're playing a County (which I remember used to be a Town), it'll make playing the Dag and Red 22, was childplay.

Must say though, the trip to Wales has been more than compensated for, much more, by a trip to G20 on Wednesday to cheer on Patrick's Thistle against Celtic. Dead excited already. :)

Rob, Newport was only fairly recently given City status.  A case to prove that Cities ain't what they used to be ::).  Being a County seems more appropriate :)

And carrying on with this (sort of) theme.

What chance has a thistle , a poor lonely thistle, on its own in the middle of a football pitch, all sad and forlorn...like... got against the might of Celtic, 1967 European Cup Winners and all that?

Mind you, if we were playing the thistle, the thistle would win 1-0    >:(
