    Up to me again, I guess.

    We should, in theory, win this. Who knows though?

    Home match so I'll be there.

    I'm feeling confident despite our current injury list. That means we will likely lose. However 3 1 home win..

    Fancy an away victory here, we are a better team this season and physically stronger. Nolan to run the show in the middle of the park, 1-2 Salop (Morris and Whalley)

    If Shrewsbury try and play football I think we will win. We look much better than we were in the latter half of last season and played some really nice stuff across two tough opening games

    1-0 up at HT and hit the post.

    Sounds like we should be 2/3-0 up according to radio Shropshire.

    Hopefully we don't rue those missed chances.

    Got the score right

    6 from 6 for us, great start for us! Onto Rochdale where we should be looking for another win!

    Never in doubt today, just disappointed we didn't get at least another goal.

    We were shockingly bad. If we play like that for a season we will go down. Awful.

    Wasn't expecting that performance. Shrewsbury were much the better team in the first half, just lucky that their finishing/last pass wasn't up to much. Second half was a bit more even but we couldn't take any of the half opportunities we created.

    If we play like that consistently it will be a long old season. A bit odd given how well we played at Scunthorpe.

    Goodness, that was awful. I was full of hope after a point at Scunny and a good performance against Brentford.

    Wombling Kiwi's tickets were sorted but I bet that he's regretting making today the only Wimbledon match he'd see on his trip over.

    We were shocking today! Shrews played well and fully deserved their 3 points. Does Ardley think we still have Tom Elliot on our team?! The number of long balls up to Appiah, Macdonald and Barcham was ridiculous. We never really looked like getting into the game, we looked very flat! It can only get better at Fleetwood next week, can't it?!

    After that performance I'd be quite pleased I think...

    If we keep playing like we did today, I think I'll move to New Zealand just to get away from it!!

    Thanks to Meadow for sorting tickets, I must be a jonah, been to Wimbledon 3 times and we score a goal less each time, and we have lost each time. Day out was good, even with result.

    Good to meet you today and thanks for the drink - non alcoholic due to me driving (I'm making up for it now). Hopefully next time you come over we'll win and be back home at Plough Lane.
