I wonder what Mariners fans would think about us angsting about possible failure against them. Their team hasn't won a game since Adam was a boy, their striker has run away from home, their star defender has gone loco, the players are dissing the coach, the club is in general turmoil and they are off to play away against a team that's on a 7 game unbeaten streak which beat them convincingly less than a month ago. Don't think they will be expecting much.

This will not be the walk in the park game you think it is, CCM dominated SFC before the red card and still managed to score again being down to 10 men. I think we might win but there wont be much in it.

I don't think it will be a walk in the park either, just putting some context into things, ie, it's much nicer being a slightly angsty Nix fan than a desolate CCM fan. Mariners have big, big problems and will be struggling mentally to lift for this one.

I mean, I believe we'll smash them. Confident in the team. Can't be alone in this?

Weird feeling, expecting to drub a team 3-0. I could get quite happily used to this.

Obviously midfield is the key.       Will it be Burgess and Nichols?      If so, are they good enough?       Guess I will find out tomorrow night.   Hoping for a good win......could do with some cheering up as the team I've supported for over 60 years is currently in 92nd place in the Football League.

Looking for a good all round performance. Will be a very good test for us in midfield with a few suspensions. Got to be a good thing that we can test our depth around the park, with a few new (enforced) changes? Especially so if we're serious about making a run at the finals come May. Would be good if we can further that gap between the top 6 and the also-rans too. ;) 

Gotta go 3-0 to the Nix though - a cagey opening 45 minutes, followed by the Sheriff bagging his first goal for the Nix and, and Krishna nicking (nixing?) in with a double. 

COYN!

Dragging my brother down from Palmy, PAX 9546. The blocks I looked at for tickets were rather full, so fingers crossed its a big crowd.

I've got a funny feeling Lowry will play next to Kopy at DCM...

Me too, or at least that Nichols won't be starting as he's been left out of late.
On another note, there's been mention made of discount codes.... But a few have been mentioned. Anyone in the know want to clarify which one should be used please?

I don't wish CCM any ill feeling but as a Nix fan, I can appreciate how they are feeling. Some of their fans couldn't contain themselves when we were in the shark. But you get that everywhere. One day they will come right. Just as one day, the Victory will go through the same situation too. Swings and round-abouts. Any CCM fans there today, deserve a special warm welcome for to travel when you team is losing, deserves respect.

Game day. Cant wait. It feels so long since the last home game, compunded by a very busy stretch at work over Christmas but here we are.

I just wanna say, lets stay grounded and not lose our heads, while its nice to fantasize winning 5-0 and start EXPECTING goals and wins just remember that we're still developing and still improving. We can banish the anxiety of watching the Nix play but dont replace it with unrealistic expectations. (Tell a tale from my European club every season I expected us to win the league every year, but one season we had a terrible finish, so the following season for me there was no expectation to win the league, just win the next game, win the next game. We ended up winning the league but Id lowered my expectations massively)

We're missing two key cogs in the machine today so im glad to see how the rest of the squad is gonna step up. I dont think we're gonna see signs of fatigue just yet (the fact we're having midweek games is irritating as feck). The players are surely gonna get a boost today and Im hoping for a noisy crowd.

I want a clean sheet today that's it. Kurto was unfortunate to concede against WSW. Half the work is done when you keep a clean sheet so thats what im personally hoping for.

Cant wait for this game though. Its gonna be electric, its gonna be fire.

We'll see you there !!

On the other hand if the Mariners sneak an early goal this will, hopefully,  fire up the Nix and we may well see a feast of goals.      Might bring the crowds back anyway.

Surely it goes:

                Kurto

      Taylor  Durante Doyle
Fenton                     Cacace
        Nichols  Kopa
                Singh
     Krishna      Williams

Subs: Sail, Burgess, Sheridan, Lowry, Burns

Sheridan still new, so reckon he'll come in to play 30 mins in the second half. Depending how Nichols goes, Burgess could see a bit more game time than usual. Burns as a back up option for injury, otherwise Lowry to come on in 89th to give Durante a standing ovation for his 300th.
