Shrews: Fans to come out in droves

Town go into the home encounter knowing victory will clinch a top-three finish and third-tier football for the first time since 1997, while a draw or even defeat may be enough based on results elsewhere.

Over 9,000 Shrewsbury supporters have got their hands on a ticket, meaning the Shropshire club's previous highest gate of 8,817 against Oxford on the final day of last season is set to be eclipsed.

Shrewsbury club secretary Jayne Bebb said: "The response from Shrewsbury fans has been fantastic. We always knew there would be a high demand for tickets and it is great for the team to know there will be a big crowd behind them.

"We were pleased to reach agreement with both Dagenham and the Football League to allow Shrewsbury supporters to be admitted to the North Stand, usually reserved for away fans, for the first time and the last of the tickets were sold earlier this morning (Tuesday).

"It underlines the level of excitement among Shrewsbury Town supporters and everyone is now looking forward to Saturday."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
