The FA Cup

After Aldershot's narrow but disappointing 3-4 defeat at Bromley (where technically we could have played at Bristol Rovers this round), the draw for the first round proper was just made with Chichester, the lowest ranked team, bagging a bye into round 2 and a 36k windfall to boot!

Tonight I will be at the Poole v Hayes replay to offer Dolphins my support.

Never been there before, won't know where the home end is, where the bar is - makes going to a new place all the more exciting.

I'll do a full report on my blog tomorrow. If Poole win they will be at home to Oxford United in the first rand proppa!
Well Poole Town was certainly quite a night, what with two floodlight failures!

That's Hayes and Yeading home to Oxford then - I doubt Oxford will be troubled by Hayes from what I saw.

It is a fix. City at home to Port Vale :laugh:

Spurs going out to Middlesborough. #MourinhoOut

@PatMrex head will have exploded with that draw :laugh:

Klopp will be fuming. He will actually have to send a team out to try and win. It's a conspiracy :)

Balls to that. It's only Everton at home, he'll be sending the kids out and giving Adrian a game.

Edit: the kids and Milner I meant :laugh:

We even got an easy draw in the final last year as well. All that way and then we draw Watford , how lucky are we??


Distinguished Member
Some tasty games for sure.

Are the 3rd round games always in the new year? Seems like a late start to me.
