So that's us, Grimsby and Carlarl picking up wins without actually fielding any strikers?

We might be on to summat here...
We don't have any fit strikers and we got tossed out by a non-league side, so don't think that's a universal rule.

I thought you’d beat us comfortably having been impressed with you guys in the league game and making seven changes.

Not sure what went wrong today. Sounds like it could have been a lot more than 4-0.
Our keeper played a blinder too in the 2nd half. 5 out of the top 7 got knocked out.

I think Lindsey needs to be upfront with fans regarding the importance he says he gives to cup games - which invariably turn out to be limp wristed disasters. 502 fans were conned into going yesterday.

sounds like the conditions yesterday mean it was never going to be a decent game of football but happy with a win and a clean sheet after our last match.

Buxton be nice in the next round. Probably be another team miles and miles away though.

To be fair you only made two changes since your last league game, we made 7 as we'd played midweek so not sure your manager could be accused of not being up front.

It was just of them for me, we usually fuck our early chances up, we took them and then at like 2-0 in the pissing rain, I thought it was your players who gave up.

Frustrating.

Kept the Gas out for an hour, conceded the usual soft goal from a set piece and, despite huffing and puffing couldn't force an equaliser.

Jim Bentley not a happy bunny "no point in putting a decent performance in for all but a minute of the game..."

I suspect changes to the starting team (if possible) will be made against Salford.

That’s true, but if the manager has made it obvious to the players where his priorities lay it’s not surprising if they take a day off. It’s not as if it’s the first time, either. It sucks.

We were rubbish, could not defend a corner, Grimsby were better and deserved it. Not a lot more to say. Big concern for us is the two injuries. Enjoy your cup run Grismby and I hope you can keep hold of Glennon his crosses were much much better than ours.

Stewards were very friendly before the game, and with 10 minutes to go when there was a medical incident they acted very swiftly and effectively.

I really liked the old-style ground, very coherent and balanced, but can you explain why the seats in 3 of the 4 stands are red not in your black and white?

Anyway enough of the extraneous stuff, now to the important things: the fish and chips. We never found Steels, and the bloke in the Tourist Information Centre recommended Browns and he was just off to his lunch there. However, we went over and felt the cafe was a bit small for us. So went over to Papa’s on the Pier and ate in the ballroom. Lots of families there, a sense that it was a real treat. My haddock was huge, more like a whale. Very tasty, though the batter is lighter and crispier than what we are used to. The lad had the platter and included his first ever Hull Pattie (I lived in Hull for six years and these between a barm were a frequent soaker upper of beer). Sadly our day had already peaked and we had unknowingly enjoyed the best bit by 1.30

We have red socks, and there has been much debate over the years about this, when the club have moved away from this...

Actually, I've no idea why we have red seats. The stand to your right used to have a terraced front and bench seats behind. This was when the ground capacity was 24k with 22k standing. The fire officer insisted that the terracing was removed after our promotion to the old Division 2 in 1980 and red seats were installed, probably the cheapest the club could get.

Watching Wrexham v Oldham. If this were just radio commentary or I couldn't see the screen I don't think I'd know who Wrexham's opponents were.

That Oldham centre back (their captain) is fucking useless. Has he won a competition to be captain for the day?

Like our game at Solihull yesterday the way radio tees went on and on, you’d have thought no one had heard of Joe Sabbra and Andrew Dallas, those 2have been putting in good performances for years.

So you think that prior to every cup game he should announce that "we are not really up for today as our priorities are our league position and as a result I'd think twice about travelling the length of the country"? Considering that we had our full strength available side out, bar Gladwin, I'd say that his priority for yesterday was to win. Perhaps the fact that the team didn't perform wasn't necessarily the fault of the manager

He said the same before Walsall in the League Cup and all 3 games in the Pizza Cup. We lost the lot. It’s obvious the cups are not a priority and I’ve really not got a major problem with that. Obviously he can’t come out and say we have no interest but if he gets in the player’s ears before cup games about taking it easy, don’t get injured, don’t pick up any red cards then it’s no wonder the players put in such lack lustre performances. But he should consider the fans who attend expecting the team to be firing on all cylinders after spending their hard earned money - especially away from home.

Quick question to Grimsby fans. We’re coming up on the supporters coach Saturday, and I will have a teenager with me who always asks when we arrive three hours early, what’s the plan? Thought I might have one this time. Although we are well blessed in that department too, I hear the fish and chips are good. Where would you suggest I take him to kill some time, how to get there from the ground and how long to walk? Cheers, see you Saturday.
That must of been fun

I think we can all agree that the FA Cup is tinpot and the real glory is in the Surrey Senior Cup…..

I was fortunate enough to miss Saturday, but the result speaks for itself. As a Sutton supporter I’ve been blessed with a lineage of non-league beating league cup upsets, however it sucks on the other side.

Saturday didn’t happen in a vacuum, 5 wins in 15 in all competitions is at best a mediocre run of form. Whilst our injury list doesn’t help (I’m not sure it’s not as bad as Carlisle’s - we only have 5 key players out for multiple month injuries at the moment, ignoring the other knocks and niggles) conceding late goals doesn’t help either, both Farnborough goals came after 85 minutes on Saturday.

I’m reaching but the only benefit is the week off at the end of the month (after a light month fixture wise)

Any other snippets from the changing room as you have obviously managed to wangle your way in there prior to each game? Failing that i'm not quite sure how you are a party to the pre game chats?

Then how do you explain destroying Mansfield away just 7 days ago to that limp wristed performance v Stockport. Do the players take it upon themselves not to give a fuck or is it more likely the manager has told them to take it easy? He’s going to be judged on where we finish in the league, not getting through a couple of rounds of the FA cup. And that’s fair enough. But don’t try and kid the fans we’re going all out to win when it’s plain for all to see, we did no such thing

Have you considered your team was simply not good enough and were beaten by a better team ?

Yeah as mentioned further up, we've pretty much always had red on our kits in some way shape or form for as long as I can remember at least. It was probably just cheaper to get red ones to be honest though!

Glad you managed to have a good day despite the result. Fair play for making that journey!

Interesting comments on The Rubbish Glennon here too. shoddycollins hellogregory League 1 leaders singling him out for praise. Very interesting indeed.

Probably on bigger wages than anyone at Hartlepool too those top players at plucky little Solihull.

Not sure about everyone else but Dirk Diggler vs Indian Dan arguing about who is more angry at Swindon being crap once every three matches is the front runner for BEEF of the year for me.

Is it really interesting? I get it, he’s good. Your fans made that clear when you had him on loan.

“Burnley must have some good left backs to let him go”
“If there’s a better left back in English football I’ve yet to see him”

Etc etc.

So it’s no surprise to me that League 1 fans and scouts are drooling over him.

You and some barrow fans are the only ones who’ve said he’s rubbish.

I will continue to hound you and shoddycollins until you both admit we were right and you were wrong and then I will still call him The Rubbish Glennon to remind you what you've done.
