Re: Sold out?

Yeah I can't see any appeal in this game for them whatsoever - a long journey in midweek in winter, to stand on flat, uncovered concrete, for a game against a side two divisions below which is on tv anyway, and the best case scenario for them is they avoid being embarrassed? I'll be surprised if mor...

Re: Sold out?

Great to see we still have a decent size latent fanbase out there - shame we can't accommodate more of it when we do get the oppourtinity (and that I'm going to have to turn up at 6.15 on the day to get a reasonable view :lol: ) but it is what it is at the moment.

Re: Home to Oxford if we win

Main reason is that this means we have actually managed to get through to the 2nd round of the FA Cup, which I don't expect us to and will just enjoy the night v Walsall for what it is. Yes - we are massive underdogs for the replay, probably more so than the first game in my eyes. Even if we don't ...

Re: Home to Oxford if we win

I doubt the potential Oxford game will be on TV - from memory the tv companies make decisions before the replays are done, and they won't risk Walsall v Oxford! If it happens (if if if) then it might get moved to the Sunday for 'extended coverage' or whatever the bbc call it

Re: Home to Oxford if we win

Good draw that. If we get through it's a big home game. If we don't get through the replay, it's not going to be devestating like missing out on Sunderland would have been! Not as devastating as thinking you've got Sunderland away, actually winning our replay for once - then the realisation that we...

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

Yeah I can't see a change (unless forced), and I wouldn't want to see one, even to get Thompson in there. The midfield trio is working really well - Wheatley sitting deep allows Hatfield and Holness to get up and down the pitch. Too often in recent seasons we've looked dominated in midfield, but sin...

Maybe they think £10k is not an unreasonable fee for a goalkeeper who would guarantee you a play off spot a division higher than they are currently playing though?

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Financially, am I right in thinking its a 50/50 cut of the gate? If so, Walsall will be a bit more expensive and the rugby club wont be taking a bite out of our 50%. The fact its a short train ride from Birmingham city centre makes it ideal for a day out/making a weekend of it if people fancy. Expe...

On top of Sunderland or Pools there were maybe 5 more notably exciting ties. After that, all the same.

If I was a TV exec and looking for an upset in the first round of cup, then our game against Walsall would be top of my list. Really? If we were flying at the top of the NLN, and they were stranded at the bottom of League 2 I could understand that, particularly if we were at home, but as it is we a...

I'd take a draw actually that would be a good result away and bring them back to BM that is one way to make the most of this draw.

That is actually a very plausible outcome as well given respective form...all is not lost!

There should be 4500+ there easily so there's more money into the coffers... 'Easily'?

Re: FA Cup Tamworth or Hereford V Darlington

And a damn sight worse than plenty of other draws we could have had. Long away trip against a team we will be favourites to lose to - hardly a thrilling prospect

If it does end up being Tamworth I’ll be somewhat more positive
