A convincing 3 points, not a snatch and grab fluke/let off ala Scunthorpe.

Curle and Sheridan had the quality in their squads to bounce back after negative results, Pressley doesn't and it is his own fault - many of his signings are too lightweight, no real battlers and this is not down to the budget just his naivety that his midfield can ballet dance past the hardmen of League Two.

That worked well against Exeter didn't it....

Big test for many reasons. SP needs a reaction from his players, he needs a performance, the players need to give a performance.

Stevenage are bottom, yes a new manager might lift the work rate a tad, but they are still poor.

I admire SP, I think its great to hear how he sees it truthfully. The problem with the Scunthorpe game being described as "rubbish", is that the next performance needed to be better, it wasn't, and quite rightly he told it how it was. We need to take something from the game Saturday, supporters were desperate to be entertained after Curle, so is winning ugly enough anymore for some? It is for me but people paying money have said to me they need to see more.

I dont want to hear they have trained well all week, so they should, just win and pass when you need to, tackle when you need to, mark your man, be clinical in front of goal. We will win if we have 8 or 9 at it.

Hope for a win like most.
Cast your mind back to this time last year .
After 7 games then we had 13 points ,we now have 7. However we then
went on a disastrous home run of 7 home losses on the belt ,the first 6 not scoring a goal . All of a sudden somthing clicked and we won 8 on the belt.
On both occasions we virtually had to start the team from scratch with a limited budget ,which is very risky whoever the manager.
Just hope we turn the corner like last year.

What a stupid question.

I want a win. A 5-0 would be nice but I’d take another dog shit undeserved 1-0 like we got at Scunthorpe.

Never understand the mentality of people wanting their own club to lose just so we might sack a manager. I don’t think pressley is doing a very good job at all, but I want him to turn things round and bring success to us.

We wouldn’t sack him anyway, we’d need to be adrift at the bottom for that.

I think this game will tell us a lot about SP's long term prospects. And I don't necessarily mean purely the result.

Just five months ago we travelled to Stevenage with a feint chance of making the 2018/19 playoffs, but got absolutely tonked 3-0, in what was honestly one of the worst performances I've witnessed in many a year. At that point it looked like Maamria had got them (Stevenage) firing, and they finished the season extremely strongly. Many had them down as dark horses for this year. Just shows how quickly things can unravel I suppose...

Alas, what made that performance so bad from a CUFC perspective? A complete lack of bite and physicality. It was quite literally men against boys. Our diminutive midfield three (O'Hare, Scougall and Slater) were overran and bullied. Our one isolated young striker (Simpson) was isolated and ineffective. Our entire defence were repeatedly beaten in the heading and 50/50 departments.

After the game, Pressley said that we weren't as "intense as we'd been in training", and that we "lacked aggression". He made a point of saying we had to find a way with the personnel that we had at the time.

At the time, you admired the honesty, and sympathised with the squad not being his. Now, I want to see demonstration that he's learnt from that experience – because you can forgive mistakes at tier four level.

I can forgive him getting a team selection wrong and holding his hands up. I can forgive a bad tactical approach here and there, made in good faith. But I can't forgive us going back to Stevenage, when their confidence is low, and making the exact same mistakes as we did five months ago. Pulling out of tackles. Letting them get on the front foot. Getting bullied at both ends of the pitch.

Some kind of demonstrative decision or switch, that shows he's learnt from the error, would give me some faith that he can turn things around longer term.

On a positive note, at least Ilias Chair hasn't gone back there for another loan from QPR. He looked a cut above last time and his absence is probably a major reason for their slow start.

We're still a long way from things being so bad that fans could want us to lose so the manager gets sacked. I could understand it (though could never bring myself to share it) when things are at an extreme level of bad. I can understand the frustration fans of other clubs might feel when a manager picks up a jammy win and the inevitable change just gets delayed.

Things have to be really bad though for that to make sense, 19th in the table after 7 games doesn't quite cut it for levels of badness. Any fans who want us to get beat on Saturday are just being melodramatic.

I'm probably Pressleys biggest critic.
I was surprised and underwhelmed when he was appointed.
I was astounded and disappointed when he got a contract extension.
He talks a terrific game but I think he's a very poor manager, always has been, and is stealing a living as a manager.
His signings are crap and his tactics are a joke.
I can't wait to see the back of him. (which I don't think will be too far away)

But I want us to win.
I always do. And get climbing the table.
And I'll be there watching.

However, I really can't see anything but another defeat. We are a shambles of a team.
And his tactics border on the ridiculous.
Plus Stevenage have the advantage of new manager syndrome

Having said all that, I'll be absolutely delighted to be proved wrong.

Unfortunately the damage has been done. You can tell by the players body language how low on morale they. Yet he still keeps spouting crap.

I'd say Holdsworth deserves the finger to be pointed at him the most.

He would just turn around to the board and say 'told you so, we should have appointed Coyle like I said' unfortunately giving himself a second chance.

I want a win - even if we lose they will not sack the manager and if they did they would bring in someone who was worse and cheaper!

Relegation 6 pointer and if we lose we will have the lowest crowd for years against Forest Green on Tuesday - possibly below 3,000!

It's definitely a thing these days that , for whatever reason, there is a significant minority of folk in the crowd that seem to want us to get beat.
The phenomenon that you have where you get a modest crowd on a Tuesday night but the atmosphere is better because it is left to the hardcore , is becoming more noticeable.
There are some strange characters about that take far more pleasure out of things going Pete Tong than not. It's a strange thing.

What we all want and what we'll get will be two completely different things. I refuse to believe that people go to the matches wanting us to get beat other than opposition teams fans, utter drivel.

Surely fans ire has to be directed to the board or are they going to get off scot free again as we change yet another manager (although he's doing a poor job of it). They'll sit comfortably in their seats once again whilst someone else takes the flak.

Whether we like it or not Holdsworth is the "main man" he`s E W Ms man....The kingmaker or destroyer.

A defeat and another bad performance tomorrow could see S Ps head roll.

I wouldn`t be surprised to see Gavin Skelton in charge on Tuesday night.

I’m staggered by the number of people who think they’ll sack pressley if we lose tomorrow.

He took us from challenging for top 3 and turned us into relegation form last season, and they STILL gave him a new contract. Yet people think they’d sack him 8 games into a new season!
