    We even managed to make the easiest home game on paper against Rochdale tough. Even the Monkey Hangers beat them with apparent ease yesterday

    There are no easy games in this league.
    Or something.

    We need to get our strategy right General, making sure they don't outflank us.

    Just think, 10 years ago today we were celebrating seeing off Aston Villa & getting to the League Cup Final, and now we're worrying about Stockport County maybe being too tough a challenge for us!

    I wonder if Derbyshire is ready to be called upon yet. I have a feeling we will revert back to 4231 for this game, given we’re away against a good team and the abundance of wingers we have.

    Be nice to see Cook get a start as well. I’d settle for a point.

    True, but we are in a similar position in league 2 as to where we were then

    We could call on the county of Derbyshire and still lose.

    There are a few pay and display car parks within a 5-10 minute walk of Edgeley Park. There are also a couple of matchday car parks available too. Otherwise it’s street parking though be mindful that some streets are resident parking only zones.

    We’ve compiled a list of car parks, below, near Edgeley Park for hassle free parking while you’re at the match.

    Car Park Sat Nav Cost Distance to Ground Description
    Caroline Street Car Park SK3 9DJ 80p 0.4km This council owned car park is just a 5 minute walk to the stadium and is priced really cheaply at just 80p for 4 hours.
    Bulkeley Street Car Park SK3 9AJ 80p 0.4km Council owned, this car park has just 22 spaces so fills up fast but its cheap at just 80p for 4 hours, and is a 5 minute walk to the stadium.
    York Street Car Park SK3 9AD 80p 0.5km This is another council owned car park within a 5 minute walk to the stadium, again costing just 80p for 4 hours parking.
    Stockport College SK1 3UQ £4 1.1km This car park is a 10-15 minute walk from Edgeley Park. It’s open between 12-6pm on matchday and is cash only. It only has space for 105 cars so it fills up quickly.
    Stopford House Car Park SK1 3UQ £3 1.2km Holding approximately 200 cars, this car park is a 15 minute walk to Edgeley Park. Entrance is via Edward Street and parking is on the middle and upper levels. Payment is cash upon entry.

    Both of the covered and uncovered sold out on the website so at most we'll be down to the last few at the ticket office if anyone still needs a ticket.

    We need to return the favour and take all three points from Edgeley Park, no half measures.

    I'd be happy with that... whilst we were found out at home with that formation it was extremely effective away from home. The only worry would be how successfully they countered it at VP, though with Crichlow in the team and them being expected to make the running as the home side I reckon it would be OK

    It’s what City have always done Dave,burn brightly for a couple of years and then fade. 1969 promotion then relegation 3 year later, mid 70s promotion then straight back down. The 80s were consistent under Stafford but just 2 years after one of our great seasons under Terry Dolan in 87/88 we were relegated. Even the great Richmond years were then followed by one of the biggest financial collapse in English football. The Rhodes and Lawn years were dismal for five years until that season of 12/13 and with the help of amazing cup runs sustained until Rahic went on a crazy spending spree which saw us relegated. We look back fondly on 10 years ago but we were about 5th or 6th in league 2 then which is where we are now. In fact had Notts county not missed a sitter in stoppage time ,that season 10 years ago would be exactly like this season.
