Yes probably moaning is a bit strong, a few saying they would prefer we were away.

That will do and I think our first-ever meeting in the FA Cup.

Windermere doesn't really have a grasp on basic geography so you'll have to spell it out for him.

Very pleasing home draw....I’ll be travelling down for it. Just be nice not to lose to Man United in the third round/play Huddersfield again!!

No doubt good pricing for the game as well. Damn sight better than getting lumbered with another Championship team or a visit to a PL side. Let’s hope it’s not an embarrassment.

Could be tricky, looks like they set up away from home not to lose, only 1 defeat and 6 draws on the road so far this season. would think they will be happy to take us back up to their place (wherever that is :D )

Perfect draw. A chance for the U23’s to show what they can offer and makes the January fixtures splendid, all relatively short trips and more chance of getting a run of form together.

Zammo I'd like Queens Park Rangers away and BT Sport or the BBC to show it live at 10pm on Monday, January 6.


You mean 10:01

Why are we playing the under 23's? We don't need to rest players, we won't go up and we won't go down either. A cup run could be the only excitement we get all season, play our strongest side.

Said by many football fans. Doesn't mean it's true. Still a long way to go

KC Royal Would like Gillingham away please, but given I've been waiting 10 years I won't hold my breath!

Will probably be either Man Utd or another Championship club...

Edit - Actually Tottenham home or away would appeal too.

Why Gillingham????

It clearly is true because there are 3 teams much worse than us and at least 8 teams who are very much better than us. Do you not watch any Championship football?

I watched a supposed 6th vs 1st game earlier today and it was shambolic. Preston couldn't string three passes together and West Brom played with no tempo and only won because of an awful ref mistake

So not sure there are at least 8 teams who are very much better than us. Build some form, gather momentum over the next 5 games or so and we could easily find ourselves up there

A home third round tie. I had forgotten what that was like. Won’t be easy they are doing well at the moment remember Stevenage playing us off the park when BM put out a strong side.
