Ooooo, it's tomorrow! I wonder who we'll go out to in the 1st round this year.

I reckon we'll draw Chesterfield or Boreham Wood and lose to either :)

A Northern non-league side away would be nice, or a non-league team at home.

I've got a feeling we'll draw Tranmere/Lincoln, but it can't be much worse than last year - Peterborough away.

In the past I've wanted Peterborough home or away but I'd quite like a below Conference side away from home as I'd quite like a weekend off to visit my grandad so not having a game to attract me would be ideal. ;-) Either that or someone in Sussex away - Pompey, Eastbourne (if they're still there), Havant etc as that's near his house. Basically entirely selfish reasons for this years choice.

At England-NZ (Rugby League) on the 7th so hoping for a really uninspiring match that I don't care about missing

Gillingham away I bet.

We'll get a shit draw. We've had some real shit draw gems in recent years. Brentford, Charlton, Peterborough to name a few.

We've had decent draws in general in the first round.

Hopefully we get someone from a different division for a bit of variety. Hate playing the same teams you see in the league in the cups.

Bet it will be Cambridge away or something though, proper boring.

Salford or FCUM so we can get on the telly box. Most non league teams away would probably be enough to get me along. Just not Rochdale again.

Anyone away please. We're cap at home :lol:

I'm sure we'll get a promotion pushing team in the conference though - just so the press and fans can wonder how we've improved this season and whether we'd be up there this season too

Any non-league team will do, home or away. We've already had one decent cup run this season, another one would be nice and another Peterborough away type draw wouldn't help the cause at all.

We only play cup games away it's standard for Barnet

So some smelly northern side away probably

But home to Wealdstone would be funny

Either a nice home banker or Salford/FCUM away.

We will probably get Luton for the 376th time in 4 years.

I'd love any of FCUM, Didcot, Aldershite, the winner of Barwell Vs R&D, Or a visit from an old foe Staines.
My money is on Plymouth, Wycombe, Gillingham or Walsall though.

I'd hope if we drew your lot we'd get on TV, which would make it a fantastic tie if we got through. There are a few good ties in terms of a story for the media if we are to make it through. Yourselves for the fan owned pheonix club parallels as well as the fact that people at AFCW gave us help at the start in terms of advice etc. Elsewhere Gillingham for the rise of Justin Edinburgh. Sheff United for Billy Sharp, plus the old club taking them to penalties in the replay in 99/00. Northampton for local game + their current possible plight as well as our history. They were also good to us when things went pear shaped (which was a pleasant surprise). Leeds are one of the biggest clubs left, and the old club took them to a replay and took the lead in the game at Elland Road 98/99.

We've got a long way to go, but they are some of the names I am looking out for in case we can win the replay. An ideal draw for us is anything which gets us on TV, and those are the names with the biggest chance.

Edit: I'd forgotten Leeds are in the Championship and thus don't come in this round *facepalm*

Purely selfish but Maidstone away would be decent

Anyone but a non league team will do me to save us any embarrassment. As i live just over 20 miles from Yeovil i wouldn't mind being drawn away to them.

My preference is a Non league side personally I think the favoured option would be Salford or Fc United being both are likely the televised games if a league team it has to be the direites or Sheff Utd personally I am excited for the draw as the 1st round is my personal fav round with the underdog non league side facing off against the proffessional sides.

Mansfield have Oldham at home, very interesting.

We're doing well in league 2 them not so in league 1 - not much in it.

Bit of a "meh" tie but both sides will think they will win so interesting
