Why is it nonsense to want the club I support to win football matches?
Can I remind you we got to the FA Cup semi a few years ago thanks to a favourable draw, anything can happen.


You know I can want my club to win football matches and enjoy a draw against a big side at the same time?

Presumably you hated being drawn against Arsenal because you thought we'd be stuffed? Well, we weren't.


Arsenal in the semi? No I was just happy to be there to be honest. Was obviously a tough game but you expect that in a semi. When you draw a huge side away in the 3rd round and when you love the cup as much as I do it is a real let down. Let's face it, we are going to do oxf*rd all in the league so the FA Cup was the only hope of a bit of an adventure we had left.


You never know. We were in a similar mess when McDermott took over from Rodgers and then went to Anfield and beat Liverpool. It will ten years next month since that game.

@FACupFactfile

Top line thoughts from the #FACup 3rd Rd draw

TV matches predictions
BBC will choose Wolves v Liverpool
and Tranmere/Southport vs Spurs

BT will choose Woking v Watford, Man Utd v Reading & Chelsea v Nottingham Forest

Man Utd and Reading have been drawn together for the 10th time ... Man Utd have won eight of the previous nine (one of the most one-sided match ups in #FACup history)

And a lot of fans will also be happy to be at Man United.

I think you're just being miserable. If we had been drawn against Rotherham, I reckon you would've been on here straight away saying it was a shit draw.


It's a shit draw for sure but you have the realistic possibility of getting through which takes away the sting a bit. You then get another chance in round 4 to get a decent tie. Even United at home would have been alright to a degree, at least it won't mean getting oxf*rd over by the richest club in world football again. United charge a scandalous amount to watch games at Old Trafford which makes the game even less appealing.

It's not nonsense of course wanting us to support our team winning, I took offence (not in a big way) at tarring all season ticket holders who will travel to the game a day tripper and being told to go and f*ck myself !


Where did I mention season ticket holders?? Of course we aren't daytrippers. I'm referring to the plus 1's or 2's of season ticket holders who turn up because it is Old Trafford or people who haven't attended a home game since 2005 jumping on the bandwagon.


You're being pedantic, you didn't say season ticket holders but you did insiuate those making the long expensive trip to Manchester are day trippers, that's unfair in my opinion. Anyhow we're both season tickets holders so let's agree to shake hands and make up ....if you're not too miserable to do so :wink:

Would have been a great home draw. Would love to have taken the kids to see Utd

Just see it being a pretty dull 2-0 away defeat

Yes but it's boring.

I don't watch football to be bored. At least with this match we get to witness the hilarity of Marcus Rashford vs Chris Gunter.

Oh well, big crowd and TV cash at least. Plus the slim hope of sticking one over on Mourinho.

I reckon Wrexham/Newport V Leicester will be shown along with Solihull/Blackpool v Arsenal. I cannot see why our game would be shown this time around.

That would be an improvement on last time's Stam's tactics of rolling over and letting them tickle our tummies. They didn't even need to break sweat, them or us. Hopefully they will rest quite a few and we can see Jose spontaneously combust on the touch line when we nick a late winner.

Only if the tickets are subsidised again by the club. Full price will be around £45.

It was excellent from the club to do this. Deplorable pricing from one of the richest clubs in the world.

Christ talk about being bloody miserable , I've been to every game we've played at Man U over the last twenty years, as many other away games, how dare you call true fans day trippers. Get a life


Don't worry - OMA is a good poster, he just comes out with the odd burst of complete nonsense every now and then


I think old man andrews is spot on. You only have to look at our away tie against Arsenal in the League Cup back in 2005 era when we took 200,000 away fans 99% of them being daytrippers.

Season ticket holder so no

Just don’t see my enjoyment being spoiled by the presence of a granny quietly sat down munching sandwiches.

And the granny sat down munching sandwiches may also be a STH.

Bored of the constant "right kind of fan" policing.
