Cup draw

Post by 222gers » Mon Dec 03, 2018 5:38 pm

Not far away now, although irrelevant if we are going to put out a scratch team. There's money to be had though. Arsenal away would be a real money-spinner. Spurs away would be great as we're no strangers to Wembley. :wink:

No doubt it'll be something like Blackburn away. Are MK Dons still in it ?

Leeds at home
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Oh well. :-(

Is this not a year when we could take the FA Cup more seriously?
Scrape into the play-offs (maybe) and have good cup run, starting with a match against Leeds that would surely attract a good crowd if we signal that the FA Cup is to be taken seriously??
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

At least it's at home.

I believe we still have the worst FA Cup record in the country over the last 20 years. So, time to start putting that right.

Any thoughts of closing the Ellerslie Road stand for the match should be abandoned.

I think we could get a decent gate if the club could in someway indicate ahead of the match that we are going to put a fairly strong side out. Presumably it'll be a tenner to get in.

Surely it's time for the club to take the cup seriously, it could be much needed revenue if we could get a few favourable draws against the bigger teams.

Think how much Reading will get for the trip to Man U even at reduced ticket prices.

Why don't we just cede the tie and be done with it.

The upside of getting a half decent team at home means that SMc surely won't risk playing another team of back up players with all kids on the bench as a thumping defeat in front of your home crowd will not be appreciated by anyone.

I'm sure that's what the club intends.
