Whoops, overlooked that one. Can't say either are standout lower league away ties, but at least its better than drawing them at home.

Watford tbh is a shit draw home/away. May have the most plastic set of supporters I've ever seen and just nothing about the club. This was typified when they cottoned on to the growing UK Ultras scene and decided to form their own group. However the Club found the name to be a bit too 'aggressive' and suggested a name change and they complied . When you consider what the entire Ultras scene is about, that's just hysterical.

I'm not even surprised.


January can't come soon enough. We desperately need new midfielders. Wouldn't shock me if Reading beat us in our game in hand either.


edit - Gardner adore his longshots

MK/AFC match was tons of fun. End of the match was heartbreaking. Went from an amazing win to a heartbreaking loss in an instant. Wimbledon fans when they scored was magnificent. Few quality players in that team too. Cup Draw is shit. Has been for the past few years now. West Ham away I'm not confident about. Cup run would be nice this year.

Match yesterday was bonkers for the first 35 minutes. Shambles defensively yet again. Evans and Evra were far worse than Rafael. Felt bad for him. Not sure why he's getting criticised for being upset at being subbed 30 odd minutes after conceding 3 goals. How do you want him to react? I'd rather see that passion than somebody zoning in average performances every week. Smalling was great when he came on though and the match certainly calmed down after the sub. Be mad to drop Rafael for City. Anderson was class again and the only one in midfield who looked to create anything. 4 weeks is a massive blow if it's true, especially with the xmas rush and City next week. We really need a winger in January from the impending Nani transfer. Just no width at all. Young criticism is harsh. Thought he had a decent games yesterday. Much better than his recent performances. He's good enough to play on the left for Utd, just hasn't shown it for a long time.

Wouldn't mind Rafael playing RM next week if Valencia isn't fit. Give Smalling more cover down the right and help cancel Clichy or Kolarov's attacking threat. Probs be something like:
De Gea
Smalling Rio Evans Evra
Rafael Carrick Scholes Young
Rooney
RVP


I guess that team could maybe nick a draw. Only bit of hope is that City haven't looked very creative going forward this season which might cancel out of our defensive ..... issues. Probably be a shit match but at least we've got a 3 point lead going into it which is pleasing.

Chelsea lol. Arsenal lol. Bale lol. Everyone's in a crisis. Winner will be the team who's the least worst this season.

Fuck. At this rate it'll probably finish 3-1


Gardner's freekicks are amazingly consistent. Like they'll go on target 9/10 times. Him & Larsson together is great. Can't remember the last time we had a decent set piece taker.

It honestly does boggle my mind that a lot of mid table and below clubs don't try and do more in the FA Cup and League Cup. I get that if you have a big premier league match early in the season and you're in a desperate need of a win you may rest a couple of key players, but teams like West Ham seem content with finishing 10th instead of maybe finishing just below that and progressing to a semi final in one of the cups.

Its even worse with championship clubs. You'd think they might as well give it a go seeing as trophies will forever be hard to come by for most in that league. I understand the incentive to get promoted will always be more attractive, but if teams are languishing around mid table by the time the FA Cup 3rd round begins, you'd think they might try and salvage something by progressing in the Cup and then trying to not get dragged into a relegation battle in the league.

Just seems strange that a lot of supporters of smaller teams look down on the cups when they represent the best possible chance of some short term success for a lot of clubs. I can understand bigger clubs looking down on it and seeing it as an excuse to rest the elite players (even if I disagree with how little the FA Cup in particular seems to mean) but when you hear a lot of supporters say they'd sooner be out of the cup early even if they could only scrape 8th in the league, it just seems a little backwards to me.

I find it stupid as well. A trophy is still trophy and what are you going to remember in years to come: winning the fa cup or finishing mid table again?

Great Post

As someone who supports a team who have been out of the premiership for over 10 years, Coventry City, I love any kind of cup run. Take this season we've had a pretty shit time adjusting to life in league 1 but have had some decent cup games, played arsenal at the emirates and have spurs away in the FA cup. A couple of great days out to make the season.

I hate when teams dont take the cups seriously, its a great way to build momentum and the atmosphere is usually a lot more fun than at league games.
