So, definitely no Poole or Hancock, White must be a doubt. Hopefully Densmore will have come the reserve match ok and be available.

On paper we should turn them over but it's going to a rejigged front 6.

Is Bannister not available if Densmore or White arenít 100% fit?

I can't recall us beating them competitively, but I think we've only played three fixtures.

Their current form is certainly unimpressive to say the least - two heavy defeats, and throwing away a 3-1 lead at home isn't what their supporters are used to.

However, results in this League so far indicate that strict interpretation of the form book is unwise.

I'f White is out, Id start Goulding at RB with Harrison and Jones in the centre, and play Harrop in Hancock's place.

It would be a bonus if Densmore could be on the bench as a viable substitute,  but if he isn't ready I'd consider Bannister for replacement purposes.

Tougher than we expect, but we'll take it 2-1 (Johnston, Harrop). Attendance 1054.

I'd forgotten about Bannister.

As Goulding has been our best CB I'd leave him there.

As of yesterday we were still waiting for international clearance for bannister from
Belgium, which is frankly f**king ridiculous. So much for your European Union.... If it was a player moving to an epl club it would be concluded on the same day. Hopefully some good news before Tuesday. An important game Tuesday, one to keep our decent start going and two because they do have a bit of and Indian sign over us.

International clearance isn't anything to do with the EU. It's to make sure a player isn't already contracted to another club.

First game of the season for me, really looking forward to this one and live in hope we turn them over in style.
One of the few sides I have little respect for. The arrogance and expectation of their supporters is beyond belief - imported from the premiership. Will be interesting to see how many turn up. I hope they get behind their team but somehow I doubt it. First real crisis they have had to deal with in their short history, too used to winning. I feel sorry for their genuine fans.

I must say I've never had that impression of them, myself.

I think a lot of the idiot element they had has now gone since they levelled out at National North level and stopped winning every week. Any FCUM fans Iíve spoken to in the last couple of years seemed to know what theyíre talking about and are more than happy to be competing at their current level. I didnít used to like them due to the idiots already mentioned but now their just a local rival whoíll bring a half decent away following the same as Southport,Stockport,Chester etc.

Unless Iíve read it wrong there doesnít appear to be any segregation in place tomorrow night-I donít think there needs to be to be honest and it will hugely increase the bar takings. Presume this will be a reciprocal deal and weíll not be on that flat terrace and down the side there later in the season but will have the chance to stand on the main terrace and have a beer.

Some good points. I hope correct. I've certainly witnessed that I'diot element and arrogance but that was a couple of seasons ago. Poor form is a great way of identifying the real  supporters. Looking forward to a good game. I hope they turn up in numbers, you can't knock the atmosphere they can create, that's fact.
