I hate us number 3.  We were always number 2 until Bournemouth decided to put the AFC in.

Sometimes Aldershot would be numbered ahead of us, and don't forget Altrincham.

I dispute these claims.

We need someone who is an authority on history of  fa cup draw numbering. I reckon in the olden days when all the 2nd round games would be played Sat 3pm and the 3rd round draw would be on the radio monday the numbers were allocated alphabetically for all 64 teams with a few either/or thrown in.
e.g. Number 6....Birmingham City... will play at home to..... Number 1....Altrincham.

Seems like it was the current format at least as far back as 1947, otherwise Hartlepool(s) or Brighton would have had a lower number than Portsmouth and Colchester would have had a lower number than West Ham.

I dunno where they get this idea about Villa fans being historians from.

How come number 5 is allowed in the cup. Always thought it was for. football teams.

Bournemouth were always AFC. We changed number when they got promoted to the Championship. Premier League and Championship clubs are numbered 1-44.
That's not strictly true ...they added AFC in 1971
They were formed as Boscombe FC became Bournemouth & Boscombe  then in 1971 became what they r today.
I suppose i'm one of the few who will remember this change...lol
Been saying for ages that all clubs should be forced to play by their original names. None of this claiming-to-be-above-your-station name changing rubbish.

Think there's a week between this and the mad xmas period of games this year so no excuse not to put a full strength side out compared to previous years imo as I'd like to see us have a good go at getting to later stages.

Obviously need a bit of luck with the draw as we got in 2015 with home ties v lower league teams. Home to Morecambe would do nicely.

We’re winning it this season. I’m absolutely irrationally convinced of this.

Hopefully Blackburn and ManUre get each other so we avoid both. Played both enough at this stage to last all our lifetimes.

Against Wycombe

After a replay

And we lost 4-0 at home the next round
