think the mackems losing is wishful thinking!

one of ipswich to beat portsmouth, hull to beat villa or reading to beat west brom would be my choices

Sunderland will probably get a hatful against Northwich. Everyone is expecting Hull to beat Aston Villa so it probably won't be that. I can see Tamworth getting something at Stoke and a Leeds win at Wigan would count as a shock! Lecester to beat Tottenham and Norwich to beat West Ham.

i fancy watford to beat bolton, leeds at wigan (if that's a shock) and sheff wed at home to charlton.

i also expect the boro game to be very similar to the notts county and hednesford games. i can see plenty of long balls being launched in to the Boro (middles) box to test us out.

i am sure we will be fine. I would have been worried if it was on TV but should be OK.

Would a replay for us be good for the home fans? ie smash in a few home goals or would it be a 9k hardcore crowd!

That's a marvellous pat on the back you've just given yourself Capy.

For a perfect example of how to deal with a potential FA Cup banana skin look no further than us at Watford.

3 - 0, piece of piss, and Sam even let the youth team keeper come on up front as a late Christmas present. Now that is man management for you.

It wasn't a possible shock as far as I was concerned, mick, as my earlier (6 days ago) post demonstrates

You'll get a sore shoulder, Capy.

Didn't see you Saturday, mate, where abouts were you stood?

It's beginning to hurt but it's worth it.

I was nearto the halfway line, close to r_fmttm of this parish. You?

Didn't spot Mr. Nicholls. I was stood at the front with Petrio just to the right of the half-way line. Never mind, we'll no doubt meet up at some stage. you going to Stuttgart?

Capybara Posted on 9/1 10:34
re: 3rd Round Cup - poss shocks.

Not far from where we were, then.

And yes.

BoroTommo Posted on 9/1 10:39
re: 3rd Round Cup - poss shocks.

See you over there for an ale or two, then. You booked your hotel?

Capybara Posted on 9/1 10:42
re: 3rd Round Cup - poss shocks.

Not booked anything yet. But yes, I'll see you there. Do you speak the language?

The language of love is universal.

I'm in the IBIS, Marienplatz, 70 (per room) per night, and a nice central spot.
