    Matchday Thread: Mansfield v Rams

    Games will come thick and fast in League 1, here we go again.

    Any opinions?

    Anyone going?

    Games may come ‘thick and fast in League 1’, but Mansfield are in League 2 and this is an EFL Cup match which we should win but probably won’t.

    Feel uncomfortable about this one. Love to win and regain some momentum but it’s exactly the sort of match - ‘little’ Mansfield against the local ‘sleeping giants’ - that we seem to struggle with.
    Not optimistic but, given a choice, Saturday against Barnsley is far more important.

    No.

    On the one hand it's a competition we aren't going to win, however, every game in the Milk Cup ( ) is more game time for the fringe players.

    Considering we're 2 to 3 weeks behind everybody else in our preparation, the extra game time is more than welcome and needed.

    1-0.

    Lets see if Rosenier throws out his 2nd 11 including a load of kids (if our squad's big enough to do that!).
    2-1 loss

    A bit harsh rA, AF is never wrong as he tells me repeatedly!

    I'll go for a crafty 1-0, assume it will be an opportunity to give some of the fringe players an outing?

    Ah you spotted my adoption of the Faber method, this enables me to claim "I was right" whatever the outcome!

    1-0 to the Rams as you ahve blown my cover!

    don't worry, it will probably be the only thing you'll get blown today
