We may as well have one of these threads as we did last year. Talk about any match that doesn’t have a thread of its own.

Away to Accrington today can't wait for it going to be tough as they will be on a high after promotion last season, going for a positive 2 -1 win for the gills

Wish I could be as excited as everyone else. Dreading this season and can’t wait for it to be over.

Blackpool at home and our first game without Luke O'Nien in midfield who hasn't been replaced plus 3 players out injured,i'll be happy with a point.

Would like a win but given we have half a new squad, it will be fun to watch. Draw wouldn't be terrible.

Forster-Caskey out for the season already for Charlton

Odds on Sunderland for back-to-back-to-back relegations? They look terrible.

Look much better now tbf. Confidence the difference between relegation certs and a side that looks like it could easily make top six.

Forster-Caskey our for the season.

Can only name 5 subs.

Captain comes off injured.

Concede a 96th minute goal in the time added on because because the winning goal scorer fouled our player.

This club can’t catch a break.

Roland out!

We look very shaky and it’s showing that’s most of our players haven’t played together before.

Posh absolutely cruising 2-0 at half time against a very poor Bristol Rovers who are still insisting that Timid Tommy Nicholls is a pro-footballer...Timid Tommy has even picked up a booking which is possibly 1 more than the number of goals he will score again this season.

Wombles edged it and I cant complain with the result. Both teams had enough chances, but neither sharp enough when it counted.

We should have gotten something today. Dominated the first 15-20 minutes and could easily have been 2/3-0 up ourselves. But for the Donny goalie pulling it out of nowhere continually. We then slowed down and let Donny have the ball and in the second they took their chances. First had a fortuitous bounce to Marquis and the second there was nothing Oxley could do, turn and shoot. Third goal could easily have been stopped, slow corner and a weak shot which everyone just watched go in. We had a great fightback and could very well have gotten something at the death. One point that did irritate me was the two Doncaster players who felt the need to go down holding their heads twice in the final 5. They weren't touched, they were just trying to con the ref. One worked. Worse one was Tommy Rowe, stopped us from attacking and went down whilst banging his legs on the floor like he'd be shot. Embarrassing to say the least. Some positives from us though which we can build on.

You had 10 minutes extra to get a point when we were depleted, I’m not sure how you can really argue you deserved something, a bit embarrassing to say the least.

We dominated the first 25 minutes and could easily have scored. You are only looking at the final 10 minutes, not the whole game.

Great win, fully deserved. Mamadou Thiam may have found his level in English football and chuffed for Victor Adeboyejo on his debut too.
