    Where you were three years ago is of no consequence. They have spent a shed load of money, have a nice rich benefactor and have one of the strongest front lines in the division in Sarcevic, Madden and Wootton. They are also on a run of something like 10 wins in 13.

    Theoretically yes. However, the algorithm used establishes normal as mostly what you use between 4 and 1 hours before the "saving session" commences.

    So today the 'normal' usage was mostly between 1pm and 4pm, ahead of the 5pm to 6pm "saving session". Today I am being paid £3.37 for every kWh I save. So, today, I charged my EV up, ready for tomorrow's trip up to Stockport, meaning filling my car up will have cost me a minus amount of money.

    Ideally, there would be a "saving session" the day before and the day after every match. There is the potential to save enough to cover my match ticket, return trip and parking costs, i.e. free football. Just need City to start making the trips worthwhile.

    They're a good side who are on a roll. If we get a draw it's stops them gaining ground on us.

    I fear we will get really turned over tomorrow night by a team I think will get that 3rd auto spot at the end of season.

    I would gladly take a boring 0-0 draw now.

    I expect Challinor to do a job on Hughes tomorrow night. 3-1 Stockport.

    They've won five of their last six league games at Edgeley Park, keeping five clean sheets. They've also scored in 19 of their last 21 games...... I'd take the most boring of 0-0s all day long.

    Looks like at home they've been fitting 3 strikers in from the start, Challinor realised goals are the way forward with the lads on his books.

    So you would not be happy with a draw then?

    Depends on the nature of it and our desire to try and win the game.
    If we are 2-0 behind with 10 mins left and end up with a draw I’d be happy, the reverse of that not so happy.
    If we see both teams going for the win and it ends up 0-0 then yes I’ll be happy, if it’s backs to the wall defending without a single shot on target and the game ends 0-0 then I’ll be pissed off wondering why I bothered. A bit like I felt after Wimbledon

    Wimbledon vs Walsall, Crawley vs Grimsby and Swindon vs Stevenage postponed tomorrow night already.
    Hopefully any areas of their pitch that might have been frozen last week or over the weekend will have thawed with the warmer weather yesterday, today and tomorrow. Looks like the colder weather is down south with minus figures forecast so hopefully any minus temperatures will stop at Macclesfield

    Stop playing the superfan Loyal, you make some real numpty comments! A draw at Stockport would def not be a failing, a lot will depend on how quickly our new boys gel into the team. Hoping for a moral boosting win but its going to be a tough natch

    Sorry but I don’t participate in anything with a half arsed attitude. Unfortunately with such high standards comes much disappointment and unhappiness.

    Yes, at 7.5p per kWh, but today between 1pm and 4pm I was effectively being paid to use electricity, so it made sense to fill my car up then, rather than overnight.

    Normally, it costs me around 2p per mile to get to and from matches but, thanks to today's "saving session" it will be more like minus 5p per mile going to Stockport tomorrow.

    So far, this season, I've only used the train for the London matches. It's meant I've had to give up the pre-match drinks, but I always make sure I've got a few decent beers ready for when I get back home.

    Stockport was expected to have a high of 7°C today. Overnight it should stay above freezing with a low of around 3°C.

    Tomorrow will be cloudier, so an expected high of 6°C, and 5°C throughout the match. There will be a 10% chance of rain during the match and almost dead calm.
