    Brighton score after 17 (yes, 17) seconds.

    Good to see Armstrong has scored again for Coventry hopefully he'll be ready for the premier league soon.

    Altrincham vs Grimsby, attendance - 1680, 825 away fans
    Kidderminster vs Wrexham, attendance - 2620, 1031 away fans

    Cracking away followings for Tuesday night football in the Non-League.

    I have a feeling after tonights result Wrexham should be very close to hitting the 5000 mark at the weekend too. Which would be great considering our budget relies heavily on home attendances.

    I'll take a point against Boro.

    Not concerned in the slightest about 3 draws from 3. Our defence looks immeasurably better (the two goals we've conceded have both come from blocked or deflected shots - literally nothing anybody could have done about either). As for scoring goals, Chris Martin and co will click together eventually and we'll soon be banging them in.

    In other news, we've had bids rejected for Jacob Butterfield and Michail Antonio. Not bothered if we don't get the latter but another CM is a must. HTAFC apparently want 5m for Butterfield though

    That quartet of O'Brien, Maddison, Lameiras and Armstrong will do bits at third tier level. Good to see Fleck enjoying a renaissance, too.

    The main issue I foresee is that our squad is quite small, which is good in terms of players gelling with each other, but a few injuries, particularly in midfield, and I think we're struggling. Key is to just get as many points on the board as possible before that happens.

    As for Fleck, I think having Vincelot next to him is a massive help.

    Bradford off to a **** start to the season, since...the last one. Parkinson not looking too happy, the board conned the fans by saying this is the promotion season, so getting 18000 ST holders would be the way foward, however its just money for the board which they dont invest in the club !. Fans are strating to figure this out. The squad hasnt 'gelled' as if we're in school and they need to gel. At this moment in time promotion is miles away !!

    Thriller at Bury, but they can't rely on Leon Clarke. He scored his fourth goal in four matches, but was let down by his defence and they need to lighten the load on him. They are free-scoring, but they conceded four last night and really struggled under the pressure of Fleetwood.

    At least supporting them means you can take stress leave from work

    I suppose, hopefully it'll become a confirmed medical illness one day, then I can cash in big time on those days off.

    Of course Bolton are going down. They hired a rancid, ginger moron as manager.

    Just came back because I had an argument on this thread last season after Burnley got relegated.

    Can't remember who it was but he was quite adamantly saying that Burnley would still be pushing for promotion this season and that Ipswich wouldn't be able to carry on any sort of form in to the new season. The guy probably won't see this and I know it is early in the season but...

    Ipswich 2 - 0 Burnley

    Somebody's got to come and raid QPR for Austin from the PL, surely.

    He was instrumental - once again - in them getting a victory last night.
