If you go we will definitely win and we will win by two clear goals (my guess is 3-1.)

Oh yes, it’s the most winnable of all our remaining games.

Maybe a few more with the opportunity of a trip over to France before the mayhem begins.

My first game was Barnet since Aldershot and Maidstone. Can’t begin to put into words how much better we looked, especially with Rodney and Duku (yes, we played 2 strikers!). Would definitely recommend going if you can, it’s the first time I’ve looked forward to a game all season

As an SDS fan always enjoyed a trip to the Crabble (with differing outcomes, anyone remember Jamie Paterson's powder puff scuffed effort that took a bobble and beat the keeper to provide a 1-0 win the year we won the conference?) but unfortunately can't make this one. Hope a few can make it, thought the 60 odd FCHT supporters did a great job Tue night at Barnet. Good luck to all those who do make it, I'll just have to wait to witness a thumping at Champions elect Leyton Orient,  unless.....

Fantastic dedication. Tell him you'll be back later and he can buy you a few then. Decent compromise that. England are going to win anyway and they've already cocked it up for the Grand Slam so out of the two I'd choose Dover if I was you.

 Love the six nations but it’s a grand slam or nothing 

nobody remembers who win the six nations they only remember a grand slam

Winning the toss today might be useful with 50 mph winds forecast throughout the game. At least it is forecast to be dry!

I wish it was here. I must admit I'm fed up of the high winds and rain. Bring on some ruddy sun.

Been to watch Town at Dover once. It was a trip from pub not far from Acky Vics bowling club cant remember name. We went Friday night on overnight ferry to France, it was just before Christmas. Coach was filled with booze, it struggled to get up the hill out of Dover port. At match I had a go at Peter Wragg from behind dugout he said he was sick of Halifax fans and was resigning, he didn't. Jason Peake scored a cracking goal and if my memory serves me right we drew 1-1. Tiring but enjoyable outing saved me a fortune on Christmas booze. I'm sure someone will tell me what year it was.

I have never made it to Dover ground, went once and going down the motorway someone decided to commit suicide and walked up into the traffic hit by the car in front then onto my car.

My garden backs onto Hebble Brook and it's nowhere near as high as Boxing Day 2015...
