Lets face it, the arguement of who will win is irrelevant.

The real question is how many people will Hornchurch declare were at the game? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/argue.gif" alt="" />

I reckon we are looking at a gate in excess of 600 with only 150 declared so split that in half.......

Right - he puts the bait on, he casts and waits for a bite <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Sticking up for HX that is something that they never do. I've been to cup games there and the attendance has always been about right.

One thing I would never do is declare a wrong gate <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> it would be great for both sides if the gate is high so lets all get behind our teams and enjoy the Cup game <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

sorry but the reason at the time we didnt have the fans was because of we wasnt performing well so jeff had enough & went elsewhere & the same will happen to them but 1 thing i will say my own belief is that both sides have good sets of fans as after the troubles we both had we still have good sets of fans & JK was moaning about the fans & the gate the reason is mate is like i said above & 1 thing people were forgeting is that JK had more of a role than just a manager & it was on the pitch deep down on why jeff left & one thing I will say about hornchurch not Slagging off anybody or being stupid at saying this at the HX board but at least Jeff & now did now go over the top at one point & bring in players like Caskey who was playing week in & out for notts county & then turns up at HX at a con south & i think that caused you to have troubles when you brought in top players in above & leagues & bring them to HX on high wages so & we proved that at canvey money does not buy you everything


Goodness me. Deep breath for this post - not one full stop or even a comma was used! Back to school sunshine. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Coup your wrong, now butt out, how would you know? the rules are different in the Ryman. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

Rule 9. Cup gate receipts
Rule 9.1 In each competion in all rounds prior to the Semi Final and Final, the gate receipts will be shared equally between the two competing Clubs after deduction of reasonable match expenses.

Be warned - this game is unlikely to be treated with much importance. Hornchurch are a good side and would push us to the limits if we are to get anything off any game against them. We're very likely to put a squad side out, though saying that I reckon Hornchurch may do as well.

there should be a rule which states that the number of staff tickets handed out to away teams should be reasonable and not bare min that the away team should not have to pay for their players if they have a team of over 14 players!!!!

i would prefer to let the under 18s have a good run out against a half decent team then anything else.

I agree, no point sending them out there to get walked over although i think it`s safe to say there will be a very different team on Tuesday compared to the AFC Sudbury game.
