So we enter the fa cup in the 4th round this year<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />. So who does everyone want as the draw is on Monday. I would fancy playing Hornchurch and show them what it takes to be a confrence team. SO who does everyone else want? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/boxing.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/boxing.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rockon.gif" alt="" />

Ken, you only need the one win against a team from below the league and then you have the chance to host ColU or Orient.

I am sure you boys don't want Southend Utd for a third time. Do you?

ohh the joys of colchester, and orient will be one of the easy games im talking about. i was thinking more premier. the whole southend thing is tough. its always a good game with a good atmosphere and the crowd is always good and im sure we can beat them (3rd time lucky (4th if you include the draw)) but it would be much nicer to have a lucky essex senior team that has managed to scrape through and put 10 past them

Last team I would want is Hornchurch at the moment. They look as certain to win the Conference South as we were to win the Ryman last season.
A home draw against AFC Wimbledon would be good even though we would be outnumbered by their fans.

Hmm! Hornchurch would me nice for me personally as I have quite a few friends who support the club so it would be a bit of a social gathering. Wouldn't fancy our chances against them though!!

Don't want Billericay either!!! Away to Brockenhurst would be ideal! Lovely part of the world.

I`m with Ken on this one, surely the aim of any team is to get as far as they can with the least amount of effort.

Bring 'em all on........ <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/boxing.gif" alt="" />

We are used to being the giant killers - I'm sure there are a few clubs who would like our scalp in the 4th round. We may have to get past a potential banana skin first <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/yay.gif" alt="" />

Oh - and if we are not drawn at the Lane can it be less than 200 miles away? Pls <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/drivin.gif" alt="" />

Tend to agree with a few easy games (is there such a thing?) building up to a nice draw at home with a referee who doesn't cover the national conference.

Won't be anyone from up north as the FA Cup is still played on a regional basis at this stage but we could get anyone as far north as the Midlands or as far west as Devon. In previous years we've had the likes of Mangotsfield and Stafford at the 4th qr stage.

Just hope we get a repeat of Stafford rather than Slough two seasons ago!!

The way the FA cup goes you are bound to get Stevenage sooner or later and all those feelings of goodwill

yes we will give anyone a game but what is the point in hoping for a hard game when we have more important things to think about.

I agree with Ken on this. I would want a team from a division like the Ryman 1st or 2nd or something similar and then hope for a couple of home draws against poor 3rd division (or League 2 as it is now known!) teams going through a rough patch. After all that, bring on Man Utd as they have been sh*t for ages!

I also wouldn't mind getting Sheffield Wednesday away from home as i only live 10 minutes away from their ground! Very convienient!
