sandman No one apart from internet edgelords with multiple usernames and old people give a flying one about the F[u]ck All Cup.

As a season ticket holder I wouldn't be "crying" if we drew Liverpool because I'd get a ticket anyway. Not that I'd want one. 8)


I have to say if there was an award of trolling.......this would win.

4 games in 9 days, certain to be kids again.

Maybe some people just like to see their team win games of football and take the greatest cup competition in world football seriously Ian. The teams failure might suit your narrative but to the actual supporter of the club a cup run means a great deal.

Barney Bristol City at home arranged for Tuesday Jan 28th.


Seems a bit foolish to me but think we can be fairly certain it'll be a similar side to the one that played Blackpool.

Do see Cardiff are playing on the 28th too, so at least both sides will be in the same boat.


Yep, not ideal, but as you say, with Cardiff having the same schedule both teams have the same issue.


Problem is where do we put it? We’re playing midweek a lot now

22nd - Forest
4th - possible FA cup replay
12th - WBA
18th - perhaps
26th - playing
4th March - possible FA Cup 5th round game
10th - possible
17th - Derby

They didn’t really have much choice. If we played on the 18th February, we would still have played 7 games in 21 days which is still a lot

Where would a replay against Cardiff go?

4th February I think. It’s normally 10 days after the original tie. Which is perhaps why they didn’t choose that week for the Bristol game

The Champions League is the worst of all the competitions in football. A team who finished 4th place in a league can win the "greatest honour" in football? Nah not for me. The Champions League if they want to make it great should be a league of 12 Champions of the best leagues in Europe. Play eachother home and away over a season. Proper Competition, better matches.

Who knows though? Concentrate on the league, get promoted, the right investment... we could be playing in an all English Champions League Final against your Leeds team in a few years.

A team of Leeds quality would sadly wipe the floor with us, thats the issue with going into the Premier League.

percy_freeman As a non season ticket holder who has mostly sat in Y26 for at least the last 5 years I am a bit annoyed that season ticket holders are given priority for seats in the area they left ie Y25& Y26 and I have to wait until Tuesday to get my tickets!

Guys, I know Trump has a certain influence, but you know not everything has to either be the best or worst thing ever right?

Also no definition of best. It has the best players in it but the structure is awful making it hard to have more than a passing interest until the quarter finals.

Looks like they only plan on making the structure worse too.
