Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Now feat. FACHTS & car window interv
Always look forward to the FA Cup 3rd round draw and hope for an away tie. What a shit tie for United to get. A fellow Premier League team who they play away every season anyway and who they've recently played in the League Cup away from home and got a sizeable allocation already.
Is it too much to ask to get one of Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford, Preston or Crewe away for once ffs? Peterbrough would be quite good as well, though if they've taken down the away terrace that ruins a lot of what makes Peterbrough a good awayday.
I imagine a lot of Liverpool and City fans will be gutted about drawing lower league teams at home. Will be a dire game with reserves being trotted out and nothing to look forward to. At least if it was away you could get a good pissup out of it and a lot more hardcore fans would probably attend, but there's nothing worse than drawing a lower leage side at your own ground. Only the opposition will give a toss and take a big following, if you're the Premier League side you're best off staying in the pub.
Unfortunately only caught the first half an hour of MK Mongs/AFC Wimbledon due to sunday lunch commitments. Great to hear there was a melee/pitch invasion by the Wimbledon fans after the equaliser, football needs more moments of pure passion like that (of course when pitch invaders get violent its stupid but there was no danger from any Wimbledon fans so hopefully the club don't incur a ridiculous fine). Also heard from a couple of people that after MK Franchise started singing 'Who are ya?' (what a shit chant btw, needs to be culled asap) to AFC, all Wimbledon fans held their scarves over their head proudly. Brilliant.
Also heard there were MK Franchise fans there with half and half scarves. Holy shit talk about being clueless.
Liverpool are away I think.
Was absolutely gutted for AFC Wimbledon, it was a moment of epicness when they scored. Just the fact that they are there on that stage is a credit to that club after what they've been through.
