We have won more away league matches to date, than any other team in the top 5 divisions.  This should count for something in the play-offs, if not to at least boost the players' confidence when the chips are down.

IF we get to the Promotion Final, we will have had 2 away cup-finals out of 3 "finals".  This should suit our playing style being as our home form is only average, at best.

Any slight advantage or perceived slight advantage should be grasped.  It might make the difference in the end. Even if we do not know who we will be playing in the final, should we get there.


Do others see this the same way?

I reckon for the home-leg of the semi-final PH should take the players away to a hotel the night before or maybe just get them all on the coach and drive them around the motorway network for 3 or 4 hours on the day so that it will feel like an away game for them.

Might be easier if us home fans just wear the oppositions colours, boo the Town team and generally make the opponents feel at home.

No lets try something different like thinking outside the box and cheering our own team, you never know it could work

Hoping that brizzle go up automatically really. Think they would provide the hardest to beat in either the semi or the final.



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think that there is any way we could play Brizzle in the Semi-Finals so if they don't go up it could be a Brizzle v Town final!

Losing 7 homes games is poor for a team near the top, but we've also won 11 and drawn 4 so it's not like we are totally incapable of winning at BP. Our likely opponents in the play offs are either Forest Green or Eastleigh and we beat both of them in the home league games.

Or maybe create an atmosphere that resembles an away day...

I've suggested the Hotel/Coach thing before Les and I think it's a great idea.  At least it gets the players together in a group and they can all arrive at the ground together.  We could make sure there are a few hundred town fans to cheer them off the coach and then create an "away day" type atmosphere by having inflatables, wigs, flags, fancy dress the whole lot.  The fans could help by putting pockets of the noisiest ones in each stand to get the whole place jumping.
