£8 for adults, £6 concessions, U16s free. Card or cash on the gate.

Anyone else heading down?

What's all this 'Mighty' and 'Biggest name of them all' all about?

Biggest game in their history, Phil. Case of underdog-itis I’d say.

Interesting looking at Google Maps to see where the ground is then just move over to the airport and count the planes on the apron or taking off:

I hope Mac has not read that. Anything less than 5-0 will be a disappointment

If the team was being managed correctly I would expect that scoreline Bob.

Nice to be able to pay cash at gate and get change out of a tenner. I paid £16 + £2 surcharge to stand and watch our previous dismal performance against our last part time world beating opponents on Saturday.

No hiding place for Penn and JOC if they fail here.

Expecting a 5-0 win against lower opposition in the FA Cup is always ill-advised, whatever club you support.

Especially on a non-grass pitch...

How have we performed on our immaculate pitch recently?

Remember CG saying he had no interest in his team playing on a muddy pitch. FFS.

and now our professional players can not go and beat a bunch of part timers on a synthetic pitch?

Irrespective of the result the pitch is not to blame. It is the same for both teams..

Quite right Mac. We have been crap on grass. We should play them on paper. Then the 5-0 would be nailed on

The two artificial pitches we’ve played on so far have produced different conditions. The Khalsai surface gave a slower ‘bounce’ possibly because it was a dry day, whereas the Ware pitch, being wet, produced a faster surface where the ball skidded on more.
As it’s dry today, unless the pitch is watered, I’d expect it to play lmore like the Khalsai game.
Having said that, no matter the surface, we need to be on our A game today. A replay on Tuesday could well be possible but it really shouldn’t come to that.
