Is the VAR check on the draw complete yet?

The Stevenage game was on TV at the weekend - they are not a bad side, should be a game we should win - hopefully

I think an apology would just be drawing attention to it. It's best just forgotten.
I agree. Everyone says or writes something a bit out of place at some point. They've realised that, and taken it down. Nothing to see here.

You didn't need to add 'hopefully' there mate, we've got a 4th division team at home.

The idea that Villa might get into round 4 is making me light headed.

Me too, fella. I'm sure we'll find some way to balls it up !

I'm used to watching 4th round draws with the frustration that not only are we not taking part anymore, but the fact we'd have probably beaten the side we should have played next!

I must admit I was getting slightly nervous last night. All the small clubs seemed to be drawn against each other, with the Villa and Man U balls were still not picked.

Before yesterday, I was genuinely considering asking Skybet for a price on us getting drawn against them AGAIN, I was so sure it was going to happen.

Saw something earlier that we’ve been knocked out in the 3rd round of the FA cup the last 6 seasons running. That includes a 3-0 home defeat to Swansea and a 3-1 home defeat to Peterborough!

Hopefully this is our season to win the CUP.

Yep. Seven straight defeats, six straight Third Round exits, since that glory, glory night when we saw off Wycombe, after a replay.

Bring back Micah and The Chewing Gummers

Big Laughs

So by that reckoning the last decent FA Cup match was Semi Final 7.5 years ago.

We have won 1 FA Cup tie since beating Liverpool 7.5 years ago in the Semi-Final

But this is our season to win that trophy

Two games I remember well. Being totally outplayed by Peterborough and thinking quite why I was sitting through the Lee Tomlin show in the freezing cold.
Does this mean...wait for it
A SATURDAY 3PM KICK OFF???
