Thread: Lincoln v Wycombe tonight

  1. #1

    Lincoln v Wycombe tonight

    ...is massive for Notts.

    Anyone still clinging to the belief that we can catch Wycombe?.....we need to be at Sincil tonight, in spirit, with Groundhopper....if Wycombe win, then quite simply 7 points over 3 games is virtually impossible to make up and we might as well resign ourselves to the play~offs, wrap Forte in cotton wool and play Grant up front for 3 games as an experiment.

    A draw would not be a disaster, but a Lincoln win, means it is game on for Saturday, Notts smash Yeovil, Accy beat Wycombe and there is only 1 point between us....simples

    The added bonus of a Lincoln win....Mansfield get pushed down to 8th........ I keep having a recurring nightmare that we will meet Mansfield in the play~offs, if so, we need to kidnap Aless and tie him to a tree somewhere in Blidworth in case Nolo thinks of bringing him off the bench for the last 10 minutes, either that or superglue his hands to his thighs.

    Dear Tarkers.
    How do you get the wobbly "dash" symbol as in play(wobbly dash)offs? All I can get is a - .

    Lincoln win,they have a few more hard games to follow. Accy could clinch promotion at Wycombe with a win there.

    Haven't you got one above your hashtag key? It's a symbol that is apparently called a 'Tilde', and it means approximately, so it's use in play~offs doesn't really make sense. You learn something new every day!

    Let's not forget Exeter who look like they could pip both us and Wycombe to third, although we do have a much better GD than Exeter so assuming that remains the same we can finish on same points as them and still finish above them.

    A big game tonight indeed, if Wycombe fail to beat both Lincoln and also Accy on Sat then you think the automatic promotion door is slightly ajar. A win for Wycombe in either match and you would say we are play-off bound.

    Interesting times

    I still think we can do it and get automatic promotion and we will know by 5pm on Saturday one way or another whether the door is is still ajar which it is currently.

    We can't worry about teams below us (regardless of games in hand) now, only catching Wycombe so a Lincoln win is a must. A Lincoln win will also push Mansfield out of the top seven and they have 67 points so the gap between us and 8th place would still remain at 6 points with Mansfield having played the same amount of games as us.

    Mansfield can finish on 76 points, and Lincoln 82. Therefore it's better for Mansfield to be in 8th place than Lincoln at the moment to mathematically wrap the playoff places up as soon as possible.

    It's irrelevant to the County other than determining who they might be pitted against for the play-offs. So there ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Exeter are only below us on GD, have a game in hand are in good form and have potentially the easiest run in. It's not just about Wycombe.

    I'm going to drive over to attend this one, hoping for a draw or Lincoln win. For autos we need to win all of ours and hope Wycombe W1 D2 L1 for 5 pts out of 12 and we'll have it on goal difference

    Mexican keyboard....that is why I appear, to everyone else, to have forgotten to use apostrophes, the Mexicans do not use them

    For the second time everybody.....I am using an old Compaq pc and keyboard donated by Miriam....remember I got slagged off mercilessly for my "dreadful, dreadful game" thread?....someone said it was tipping it down with rain and I could not even see it on iFollow on my tiny laptop?...she gave me this because it had a bigger screen BUT the keyboard is a Mexican layout AND the symbols are not where they appear to show
    ie if I press hashtag I get .......if I press left bracket I get @.....if I press right bracket I get ~.....it does show a normal hyphen but it gives me /.....and the underscore comes up as ?.......it is a nightmare, but I have memorised just enough "hidden" symbols to get me through most conversations on here.....without upsetting the grammar nazis

    So yes Elite, I fully understand that bell~end does not really make much sense with a tilde, but is the closest approximation I could find.

    edit....I have just found the ----------- button, it is "hidden" under the question mark, backslash button after the zero.....now I need to memorise it-----------, I also found the ======= button, it was the "upside down question mark" that certain countries use....I am on a roll

    Actually when you spell it out like that it looks even more doable, I'm feeling even more confident now, nice one!

    You know must more than I do about keyboards and stuff and have probably tried this but some laptops' keyboards are configured for the US usage. Somewhere on your computer there should be an access in it's settings to the keyboard settings, there is on mine and it was set for the US, an option to change to UK was shown, that's what I did and ~ MANGE TOUT! Rodney.

    You may be right.....the computer was is Spanish-Mexican when she gave it to me and I changed it to English in the SETTINGS, plus I updated it to Windows 10....I never bothered with the keyboard because it is a Mexican-Spanish keyboard anyway with many symbols that we do not use....ie the upside-down question mark at the beginning to indicate that you are starting a question, the upside-down exclamation mark, the "emphasis" symbol that turns an "o" into a "yo" sound etc etc

    What I think may have happened is that the computer, now in English, has tried to reset the keyboard to English and scrambled all the punctuation symbols....it is not really a problem as I have memorised the , @, ?, and today, found the - and = signs

    edit - I hit every symbol until I found the apostrophe, ', sign.....it was actually the "pointy bracket" symbol....now I have to memorise the 3 new symbols...not easy when I've had my daily 8 pints by 7pm!
