FA Cup 2nd Round Cheltenham Away


Recommended Posts

The game last season at Swindon was the worst of the season.  It was played in a howling gale and ended 0-0.  I seem to recall their manager complaining that we'd been time wasting from the first minute because Scott Brown couldn't get the ball to stay still for a goal kick and had to keep respotting it!

Home to Chichester, likely TV revenue as well

In the 2nd round there are no big names. Drawing Ipswich or Sunderland at home isn’t really a glamour tie. Just a bloody difficult one.  Another duff league 1 team on hard times or non league tea

Whoever wins will fancy themselves against us at home but then again so did MK Dons. We have nothing to lose.

Well we have being doing fabulously away and players  have been putting there bodies on the line to deny goals for the opposition .

We could do with free travel so to take as many as possible either venue .

Thats a big ask though as we ain’t got thousands throw away .

Just hope we can get through ,how I do not really care ,block the goal up with bricks and someone get  thee head on something And it fly in .

Come on Vale

I believe it is a 50-50 split of the net proceeds, i.e after match day expenses for the home club are deducted and  5% to the FA. 

Thank you. I’d suggest to boost the coffers we need to take as many fans as possible. The cash would be excellent to boost the clubs funds. Who knows win this carry on with current league form, then come January we could strengthen the first team, but only if we’re bringing in better than what we’ve got.

Crummy draw. I hate any match where you play a team in the same division. However these two are awful away days too. Swindon always charge daft money and our record is dreadful there. It is winnable though 

Wouldn't say Cheltenham is a bad trip - easy to get to , M6  M5,  lovely town, you used to be able to park free on the racecourse car park and a free bus took you to the ground. ( you had to pay for the bus in to town)  Nice weathersoons in town for cheap grub/ale and , for a couple of quid , you could go in to their club at the ground. Lovely views from the away end - all in all a very pleasant away day/weekend - providing we win of course!

Would totally agree about Swindon though.

... just came across this on the Swindon's fans' website...

"For those panicking about Grant and Doyle - apparently both the contracts stated they weren’t to play in the FA Cup when they joined, and this isn’t something that has been decided recently and due to form."

This might be of some help to us should Swindon win the replay, as it suggests that neither Doyle nor Grant would be able to face us. I assume that if this is true, then neither club will be able to change the written contract until Jan 1st.
