Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Financially, am I right in thinking its a 50/50 cut of the gate? If so, Walsall will be a bit more expensive and the rugby club wont be taking a bite out of our 50%. The fact its a short train ride from Birmingham city centre makes it ideal for a day out/making a weekend of it if people fancy. Expe...

On top of Sunderland or Pools there were maybe 5 more notably exciting ties. After that, all the same.
Behave :lol: pretty much any football league side at home would be more appealing than Walsall away. Doesn't mean I'm not going to go and hopefully have an enjoyable day

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

All the people whinging about the draw, seriously, what are you on about!? The odds on us pulling Pools or Sunderland were extremely long. Outside of that, would you prefer a total nothing tie against a team at our level or the Conference that we could easily lose and nobody would even bat an eye l...

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

If I was a TV exec and looking for an upset in the first round of cup, then our game against Walsall would be top of my list. Really? If we were flying at the top of the NLN, and they were stranded at the bottom of League 2 I could understand that, particularly if we were at home, but as it is we a...

I'd take a draw actually that would be a good result away and bring them back to BM that is one way to make the most of this draw.

That is actually a very plausible outcome as well given respective form...all is not lost!
Yes - and a replay could have TV potential too... :lol:

There should be 4500+ there easily so there's more money into the coffers... 'Easily'? They only just beat that in the first round last season when they were playing Coventry, whor are more local and a bigger draw than we will be for the Walsall public. Yes it could have been worse, but it hardly g...

Ground out a win - we can certainly play a lot better, but it’s pleasing to see us being clinical and then keeping Boston at arms length. O’Neill is getting better by the week - would love to see his loan extended for the season. I don’t get the moaning about the ref personally - thought he was ok o...

Re: FA Cup Tamworth or Hereford V Darlington

And a damn sight worse than plenty of other draws we could have had. Long away trip against a team we will be favourites to lose to - hardly a thrilling prospect

If it does end up being Tamworth I’ll be somewhat more positive
