time for us to get our umbrellas out...neither of their away ends have a roof!

I'd be overjoyed if we face Stockport. They are a top club. I was only there last Tuesday for Stockport v BHA. Good game, good young passing team. Can't wait, SOOooooo hope we get County, I'll be there with brass knobs on! I'd be surprised if we didn't get the stand with the roof on cat_shafton to be honest, bit of upheavel for the home fans but I think we'll fill that stand and obviously the money would be useful for them. They have had to do that for the game against dirty Leeds and Villa will more than sell the allocation!

no roof on the away end? outrageous! Looks like you got a tough draw there, but I think on your day, you could beat either of those teams.

A couple of decent games there in terms of Midlands interest - namely Birmingham v Wolves, as well as Coventry v Kidderminster. Always had a soft spot for the Harriers!

Me too YatesyVillain, particularly so after they went to St Andrews that year and knocked Birmingham City out of the Cup by 2 goals to one. They were a non-league team in those days too!

As for our draw this time around. Just pleased that we avoided premiership opposition, but whoever we end up facing, Gillingham or Stockport, it will be a tricky little tie. We have hardly set the F.A. Cup alight in recent seasons, maybe this season we might just enjoy a decent little run. We can but hope!
