Ah the magic of the FA cup, kids and stiffs getting mugged off by a team a division below us.
I am not bothering, why should I? They wont.

Mr Palermo I'm guessing season ticket holders have just had their money taken and actual attendance will be in the 30000 range?

Sullivan: You will play the kids, David.

Moyes: As you wish, Master.

Vast majority of season ticket holders aren't on the auto cup scheme so would have had to pay for their tickets, obviously a few will buy just for the priority point but overall the attendance is very strong especially given the recent form.

I did look it up and got back that it's Short for "F-ing Long Island Dochebags"

Which then had me scratching my head even further. :lol:

As usual we are doing so poorly that suddenly the FA Cup plays second fiddle to the league. I would hope we play as strong a side as possible but thinking several youngsters will be thrown into the mix.

Personally I hope Antonio plays a part from the beginning but I expect he will be kept for the next game.

We might as well start him against WBA, the next game is Liverpool at home...which doesn't even bear thinking about.

A good reception for Slav and scrappy 1-0 WHU victory.

Intrigued as to what the original title was. :?

There is no excuse for not going full bore at this, the next batch of league games are free hits if you like so bollox to those. Full strength in the cup please.

Their first XI have been poor recently it seems. Rotating may even be advantageous for them. They will probably be fresh and could run rings around us. Thier reserve players will be hoping to make a claim and dislodge any underperfoming first teamers. It could get ugly.

Austin to score and ram it down the throat of Sullivan?

There is another joke here, I shall refrain though, just in case someone else is offended 😇

If Austin does score for them, I hope he runs over towards our directors box and lifts his leg up and points to his knee. :)
