a/ Traditionally we falter with teams from the lower leagues, but you can hardly call this a traditional year. Comfortable win
b/ Traditionally we falter with teams from the lower leagues, but if we can get them back to ours, we can obviously take them on penalties. Draw.
c/ Traditionally we falter with teams from the lower leagues. Anyone with any respect for our traditions will know that this has defeat written all over it.
d/ Traditionsally we wouldn't have spent most of the season in the top 6. Traditionally, we wouldn't have nearly enough points to guarantee Premiership survival by the end of January. Who can say what will happen in the cup?
e/ West Ham? Magic of the cup? I'll dig out a traditional 1960s shirt with the blue sleeves, strips on the cuffs, that sort of thing, MOORE 6, on the back, then find a Curry's with it on in the window. Proper West Ham, me!
