Was a bit of a rubbish draw all round apart from the Kiddy game. Could really do with Forest vs Leicester to make a couple of very watchable ties for the neutral, annoyingly.
Yes - agree.

If West Ham had been at home would have been the top 8 PL all at home.

That's a pretty terrible draw for Boreham wood.

This pleases me.

Thoughts and prayers to Notts Police with Notts vs Grimsby and Forest vs Leicester on the same weekend.

It’s potentially good news for our game with Grimsby being on the Saturday. I imagine Forest v Leicester will be on TV, so unless it’s the 530pm Saturday one we should be ok.

Not quite everybody, I’m working the Saturday but off on the Friday so Friday night would be great for me.

Brilliant for Kiddy, that'll be on TV.

Do Chelsea ever not get a lower division side at home? No wonder they are in the final basically every year.

They caught us on a bad day to be fair.

Boreham Wood had a 3,500 ‘sell out’ crowd despite having a capacity of 4,500?

Only just getting my voice back. What a weekend.

Yes, there was an element of tinpot about our goal and it'll mean f all if we don't make it back to the FL. But the goal celebration was indicative of a club reawakened and reconnected with a growing fanbase. How brilliant to see so many Dads and lads there. Never seen my 11yo sing at a match so much before...he's had a season ticket for a few years now, but he undoubtedly 'gets it' now, and I suspect there will be a fair few more as well. An important day for CFC irrespective of the result.

Absolutely amazing weekend. Reading was an amazing experience. I did like the Reading fans singin "How shit must you be we're winning away" when they took the lead :pmsl:. Just about wasn't born when we had our great cup run in 94 so that by far was the best experience I've had watching Harriers.

But onto the West Ham game there's a so much narrative, they best us in 94, Moyes was playing for Preston in 94 when we beat them in the 4th round and the West Ham owners were in charge when we beat Birmingham in the 3rd round in 94.

Would've loved the away game with all the gate receipts but our game has the feeling of a Friday night game, under the lights at Aggborough all the pressure on West Ham with the crowd right on them who knows we could shock them!

Wonder if anyone will be brave enough to ask if he remembers that!

Ah, takes me back to Torquay in 2002, a week after our 2nd relegation out of the League was confirmed. "We're shit, and we're beating you, we're shit and we're beating you...." we sang. Oh and, "You can stick the Football League up your arse, you can stick the Football League up your arse, etc....". Happy days. :ds:

5850 was quoted on our forum.

Of which about 5000 had been on the ale all day. Fantastic atmosphere.

Safe standing is the future btw, fuck the trial get it rolled out
Quality following that, fair play. Got to be done though! I'm surprised that the home ends were full at £30 a pop too, great pay day.

Apparently we all need to have a whip-around to pay for Chesterfield's VAR
