WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

FA Cup
Well the greatest cup competition in the world starts on Saturday, with the extra preliminary round. My son and I have picked a team, Knaresborough Town in North Yorkshire, and are going to watch them play Northallerton Town. We will then watch who ever wins in the next round and so on. I don't expect we will be able to get tickets for the semi-final or final but really looking forward to it! Proper grass roots football, cheap beer and fuck knows after the next round, where and who we will end up watching. A friend did it a number of years ago and really enjoyed doing it, I don't know if anybody on here has had a go??

Re: FA Cup
Mex - Yes, it really should be the Grief Tourists v Norwich but WH v Leeds and being able to get tickets and being on same time as Charlton v Norwich fucked the plan up really.

I think we're going to do the FA Trophy next year, as the early rounds have been the most enjoyable but still got a lot out of the later rounds for various seasons and if Borehamwood pulled it out of the hat it will be good to have seen that!

Re: FA Cup
Doh, should be Liverpool v Norwich, no?
Oh well good effort to attend a game every round.
I liked the original plan would love to do that, I guess the final will always be a problem, or even impossible.

"Any tips for where to park would be gratefully received! "

Not sure about that, but I strongly suggest that you remove your hubcaps and store them safely before travelling.

Re: FA Cup
After starting the adventure at the beginning of August, I never thought we would get this far! We've gone for Everton V Boreham Wood. I can just about get to Liverpool from work and Friday is my day off which works well as it's an 8.15pm kick-off on Thursday. I've always wanted to go to Goodison, so it ticks that box and there's a very slim chance, Fat Frank could suffer the ultimate managerial humiliation, which Moyes just managed to avoid last round. Any tips for where to park would be gratefully received!

Re: FA Cup
Still continuing with this, in a sort of a fashion. Went to the WH v Leeds FA cup game which sort of broke the chain. It would have been ideal to follow WH in the next round but obviously couldn't get tickets so we decided to keep on going and picked City v Fulham. Got a friend whose a Fulham season ticket holder who I haven't seen in years, so met up with him for a considerable amount of beers in Manchester city centre which I think is a bit of a dump. Pissing down with rain all day, up in the top tier with the Fulham fans close to the City fans. Slight bit of aggro which was amusing particularly when Fulham went one up before normal service was resumed. Next round the FA cunts have put it mid week so fuck knows where we will be, virtually impossible to get down to Southampton mid week, so could be Forest.

Re: FA Cup
Had it all worked out perfectly for the 3rd round in a couple of weeks. Continue the cup run by watching Charlton v Norwich on the Saturday, hotel booked then WH v Leeds on the Sunday. Checked the fixtures, fuck me both games on the Sunday! Can't pass up WH v Leeds, so original cup run is postponed for a round!

Re: FA Cup
Charlton v Norwich for me, that's got me pissing my pants with excitement!

Re: FA Cup
Few to many beers before the match to make much sense of the game. I think Charlton were just a bit more clinical. Few more beers in the Premier afterwards, a few Charlton fans stopping there, fair play to them, coming all the way up there on a freezing Friday night. Await the draw on Monday, to much to ask Charlton draw us!

Re: FA Cup
I watched Stockport beat Wealdstone 4.1 last week & they look a tad overpriced to me tonight at 6/1 or win & btts at 11/1.
Quigley Madden & Cruickshank all very good players.
Also done the 3.3 draw at 66/1.

Re: FA Cup
Only if it was the only way to get a ticket!

I was in the away end for the cup semi-final V Forest which was fucking awful, particularly as my brother managed to persuade the steward to take him to the WH end!

Re: FA Cup
Fair play have a good one
So if we draw gateshead at home in 3rd round are you going in away end ?

New Jersey 11:23 Wed Nov 17
Re: FA Cup
Yes, I think it's on TV as the match has been switched to a Friday night. In a way pleased Gateshead won as Altrincham have big restrictions on tickets for some reason and with Charlton going up there it would have been difficult to get tickets. Plenty of room round the running track. Booking the Premier Inn today, £45, few beers in Newcastle Friday teatime then onto the match!

Re: FA Cup
Gateshead won replay 3 2 so gateshead v charlton next

Re: FA Cup
ITV4 now. Solihull Moors v Wigan.

New Jersey 1:52 Tue Nov 9
Re: FA Cup
Mike - Hopefully Altrincham will squeeze through on the replay, as train links are good from Leeds so we can have a few in Manchester then get a train out to the leafy suburbs. They should win the replay against Gateshead being a division higher and at home but you never know. Don't really fancy going to the Gateshead running track again, pretty soulless and I wonder when the last time it was full was?
