    Yes, it's been interesting over the last few weeks to listen to other commentators. Enjoyed the Southend and Cheltenham ones. The Cambridge ones were good but kept getting our players names wrong which I found a bit distracting. Certainly none have been as biased as our two (or one, just Andy really). I do wonder what other clubs fans think as they listen in to our commentary!!

    To get even more of a match day experience, can I also suggest setting up your laptop at the bottom of the stairs and sitting half way up to recreate the feeling of being in the stands.

    I agree with you about Rowe. I was too scared to post about it after the game, because I couldn’t find my tin helmet!
    I thought he lacked a bit of conviction, and apart from a couple of back heels, seemed off the pace and lacking in energy. But - I put this down to him lacking match fitness due to his illness. Hopefully he’s back to firing on all cylinders tonight.

    ah but you didn't see him nailing the crossbar challenge at half time :grinning:. Like yourself I wondered if he was not quite fit (or sulking). I'm sure he will be back to his usual self tonight

    We should put some wheelie bins in the top corners of the goals and hope Orient don't notice.

    I just think it’s his laid back style and coming into a match at that stage it takes a while to pick up the pace of the match. He was neat and tidy and we can’t expect fireworks from him the whole time

    I thought Rowe's performance on Saturday was a tactical response. Two nil up, hold play up there and do not take any risks.

    Can’t believe 2 people have voted that we will lose tonight, feel the force people. We are coming for you Cambridge.

    This won't be an easy game, despite the relative form of both sides. When you've got a goalscorer like Danny Johnson up front, you've got a chance.

    I think we'll edge it, but I don't think it'll be comfortable.

    The way our luck is going at the moment Danny Johnson will stub his big toe in the warm up tonight and miss the game.

    I'm planning on queuing in the kitchen for a £5 plastic bottle of warm Carlsberg and a pie which is either luke warm on the outside and freezing in the middle or has a filling at roughly the same temperature as the surface of the sun.
    I'm then going to walking up and down stairs eight times until I see spots before my eyes, before slumping into a plastic garden chair.

    My matchday programme arrived this morning, complete with articles (from Ryan Sparks and Mark Trueman) about yesterday's announcement concerning Mark and Conor's roles being made permanent. #uptodate

    Think we should play both Cook and Rowe tonight with Cook up front and Rowe, Cooke and Vernom as the three behind them

    No way to do that without taking pace out the side.

    It's a no from me.
