Fa cup 2017/18

by double d » 16 Oct 2017 19:26

Some tasty first round ties

Our very own maidenhead away to Coventry. I am very much IN for this!

Woking at home to bury

3 step 8 teams left in (Hyde united, ossett and heybridge swifts). Hyde vs mk done and swift v exeter.

Few shocks on the cards I think including My new fave team, Shaw Lane fc at home to mansfield.

Shaw Lane v Mansfield
Hyde v MK

This is what the FA Cup is all about - literally a park pitch with the main stand being this......

Two women and Dean Saunders in charge of the cup draw last night. Fuming.

A couple of satisfying results so far today......9 team change Leeds bossing the game in the early stages, losing to Newport ...and are out :lol:

Shrewsbury well worth their return match at the olympic stadium......impressed with them today

Brilliant by Forest.

Arsenalol undone by Wenger’s pathetic team selection and a good solid team performance from the trees

Very impressed with Brereton, the 18 year old Forest striker.

Superb for the competition overall.

+1

That’s Arsenal out of the running for the only trophy they can dream of winning.

( haven’t checked if they are still in the League Cup, but even they wouldn’t count that, surely?)

I see that Leeds had a player (Saiz) dismissed for spitting at a Newport player. Same player was at the centre of a spitting allegation when Leeds played Port Vale in the league cup earlier this season.

He now faces a 6 game ban

Seem to remember he tried getting a Vale player off in that game as well by taking a dive. He was of course also the player who took a dive to win a penalty against us at Elland Rd.

He doesn't actually exist, he's merely the synthesised spirit of Leeds Utd.

And another red card for Leeds, O'Kane for a headbutt against Ipswich.

5th red of the season.

And just a day after Spurs were held by Rochdale too. Brilliant.
