So long as you get back in time for last orders :lol:

Enjoy the trip, was thinking about going cos I've got a couple of Hartlepool mates (not because of the football at all tbh) but decided against it as i'm off to london at some god awful time tomorrow morning...and meeting up with them would inevitably result in going out and me missing the coach to london haha

Not bothered going (120 mile round trip for home games) but would like to do well. We've named our strongest side pretty much bar Inniss and Moore who are ill and gave the Leicester loanee his first start.

Hooper who we hoped would play is on the bench so hopefully get a look at him.

Strong side from Smith bar the defence.

Bradshaw, Mantom, Chambers, O'Connor, Taylor, Lalkovic, Morris and Baxendale all starting. Youth lads at full back and in goal which is where Morecambe could expose us. Having had the wembley experience last year, tonight's about no injuries and hopefully losing on penalties so we don't dent confidence.

13 shots, 5 corners and 68% possession in the first half. Normally means the writing is on the wall...Chambers missed a one on one just on the break.

Nobody cares about this til the regional finals, then it is queueing around the block time.

I try never to miss a game of this, for it would be a great feeling at Wembley to say i had actually see how my team had got there.

Not that we have ever got there of course. I therefore have a rather large catelogue of watching us get spanked in this competition.

Genuinely have no idea how we haven't scored 4 or 5 tonight. The Morecambe keeper has made a save every 2 minutes in the second half.

Sounding like one to forget, we move on to the league, of which is more important anyway if we want promotion by xmas.

Such is football sometimes. After a trip to Wembley last season I can safely say I'm not bothered to be out, at all. Well done Shrimps.

Lost 4 3 on pens and I couldn't really give a fuck.
Well done donny.
We have other priorities this year - like staying in the league.

Shouldn't really have been a clean sheet for you but oh well. Don't think you can really give plaudits to your defence when Jabo's missed a sitter and had two cleared off the line in a 20 minute cameo. Our starting team was pretty crap so I sort of expected nothing until we made subs.

Got to be in the position on the line to clear it to be fair. Team that finished was weakened by the end and sounds like we missed Foley and Moore so pleased to get through in the end.

I work with a couple of Carlisle fans and they fancy you for the play offs. What I have seen of you i have been impressed so hardly surprising you pushed them

Not a single crowd above 3000 in any match. What a waste of fucking time this competition actually is.

Do Soccer AM still do the draw? If we're in this competition we may as well hope for Oxford at The County Ground.

Scored 7 consecutive penalties in the shootout at Newport, world class.

Just glad we gave another good showing in a game against higher division, didn't seem like there was much in it. That being said, neither team really seemed to care up until the latter stages of the match so perhaps I shouldn't draw conclusions from it.

For clubs of your size, probably. But for the smaller teams it isn't. 2 of my all time favourite Alex memories came in this competition. When we beat Coventry at a packed Ricoh and beating Southend. I'll likely never see the Alex win a division title and definitely won't see us win the FA or League Cup. This for us is the best we can hope for silverware wise. Plus we made a load of money from the run we had 3 years ago, so financially it was worth it as well. I understand the flak this competition gets and I think everyone would get over it pretty quickly were it to be scrapped. But I do think it holds some value for the smaller teams.

We'll go out in Round 2. The North West section is stacked with tough teams, only 1 L2 team left in that group. Morecambe away would be fun. Would take them away, Blackpool away or anyone bar the Vale at home.
