FA Cup 2nd round draw….So, BBC 2 will host the draw for the FA Cup 2nd round on TV; what a time to be alive? My only usual exposure to council television channels is to watch the truly excellent Chase on ITV every night – as if the dark nights weren’t depressing enough, it turns out The Chase has finished….. Bradley, just communicate with us please? If you’d mentioned it on Friday, I’d have been disappointed but nothing like I felt tonight? Thank goodness that the best programme on TV, (Countdown), never ever ends. Having had one TV disaster, at least I’ve got the FA Cup R2 draw to look forward to….
Sunderland face a replay against GillinghamGillingham aren’t great and we can obviously beat them at their gaff? Realistically on current form, we probably aren’t to going to win the FA Cup come what May? So is it worth beating Gillingham in the replay? SAFCBlog has visited 86 of the current 91 football league grounds – so away at Newport, Salford or Forest Green would be ideal. Failing this theres 3 scenarios…..
- Option A A team we’ve never played …. eg Altrincham or Harrogate. In the event of this draw let’s win the replay
- Option B Someone away in our division…. eg Shrewsbury or Walsall. In the event of this, let’s not go through; best scenario is to do what we did at Oxford? Play well and draw, (not a loss and good for morale), then lose on penalties, (we can do this with ease)
- Option C Last option is a home draw that we will win – really not bothered, but may as well beat Gillingham as it’s an extra home game and will soften the blow of 3 weeks without a game, (no Bury and on holiday for Blackpool at home).I had planned to wander down to watch Harrogate Town vs Portsmouth, but it’s cold and wet, so can’t be arsed.
Tension unbearable at my gaff….FA Cup 2nd Round Draw
FA CUP 2nd round draw…..not often you’ll get 4 sets of supporters saying for fucks sake in unison?
