In 1964 we beat Blackburn in the 5th round and became the first (and I believe only) 4th division club to reach the 6th round.
This time I hope we go 1 better and reach the semi final. It is at Wembley after all.
And that is a big IF. Personally I am hoping your FA cup replay goes to extra time and penalties and you are absolutely knackered by next weekend.
It would also help if you managed to pick up a few yellow cards and a couple of sendings-off.
As it happens we have a weeks recuperation.
No complaints at all about the result - we were well and truly stuffed. I thought the whole of our team were just a touch slower than they had been in our previous two exertions. It appears to be catching up with us
Definitely leads to an interesting situation next weekend.
Now that we have...
Although heavy snow is forecast overnight the pitch is covered and there should be no problem there. I don't think the match will be stopped by the referee.
However, if the surrounds of the stadium, car-parks etc are considered dangerous it is not unkown for the police to prevent the game...
With regards to the match I have some fears about our ability to keep up the tremendous tempo of our last two matches. There may be a touch of fatigue setting in. Providing our midfield (Lundstram and Sercombe) can keep up their achievements to date then we will have no problems. Roofe will...
You are indeed correct - it would have to be.
And there is a further complication for us. We are still in the JPT. - 1st leg of the area final live on Sky 1 on Thursday. Should we progress to the JPT final that is played on Sunday 4th April at Wembley. Our 3rd April home match v Daggers...
Just a little history lesson. In 1964 we beat Blackburn in the 5th round (I was there) and became the first ever 4th division club to reach the 6th round where we lost to Preston (who I believe went on to win it). I dream we are going to match that this year and reach the 6th round..
That has got to be a wind up. Our biggest problem is a lack of height in our central defence. We are looking for a CB - but someone well in excess of 6 ft. Alfie Mawson at Barnsley is the one we want most.
