FA trophy

Recommended Posts

Cambridge fan in peace. Bit surprised about this draw as we are used to being in a separate pot just including Histon and Luton.

 

Anyway, a club with our heritage has no time for this Micky Mouse Trophy so it would be greatly appreciated for your manager or chairman (do you have chairmen at your level?) to contact the FA to forfeit this tie, to save us the trouble of beating yourselves.

 

Good luck for the rest of the season!

Very amusing!

Looking forward to playing you.

Unfortunately we got turned over in the FA cup by your first team, so hopefully we'll have more luck in the Trophy against the City's second biggest team.

At home so cant really complain, against a new team, happy with that. What we should all be looking forward to now we have progressed a league! Cambridge Uniteds away record reads well in our favour only having won one away game all season. COYB!

Nice draw for us. A home tie with a chance of a decent gate and not against someone we have played 6 times in the last three months.

Looking foward to it. COYB!!

Shouldn't you guys be more excited about this game. I've read your worryingly short Wikipedia and apart from some Vase thing you've won, your history is pretty poor.

 

Us big boys coming to town should help you out financially (so you should be grateful to the FA for allowing such a mismatch) with you surely able to get an attendance of 500 to what will be the biggest game of your history.

 

Good luck folks!

All this trolling is failing to hide your obvious dread of not being able to live to your near neighbours mighty achievement of getting a result at fortress New Lodge. In all seriousness how many fans do you think you'll bring for this game?

 

A decent draw for us I think, been a while since we had some good trophy exploits. Can be good fun if you go through a few rounds. Hereford and Exeter spring to mind as decent ties in recent memory

I'm liking TSFOR; he's a tryer.

 

Good draw and, looking at their away form, definately winnable.

 

Not too far for their fans to travel either, so could be a reasonable attendance.

 

Looking forward to it.

It is quite hard to predict an attendance for a competition that a majority of our fans don't care about until the 1/4s at least.But I suspect a fair few will make the trip, we have one of the better away supports in our league despite our bad start

I can't see us bringing too many to your place. The FA Trophy really doesn't entice itself to us U's. Its like being in the Football League and having to play in the Johnston's Tinpot Trophy; nobody wants too!

 

We will probs bring around 200/300 because it's within an hour away. If they make it "all ticket" I would doubt any U's fans would bother to turn up.

They won't bring enough support to make it all ticket as the fella said above i reckon they will bring about 250 tops, with us averaging around the 500 mark plus the Cambridge support add a few glory boys anything under 800 would be a shame for such an attractive game(for us anyway)

Yeah wasn't sure as to whether it applied whatever the interest for the proper round games. Can only see it being around 700 odd for this game so all ticket would seem pointless.

Please do have some extra burgers waiting.

 

Last season when we took 1,100 to Braintree it took 40 minutes to get a tea and some food! Luckily all I missed was us let 3 goals in. If we're losing at your place, can someone sort it that it takes forever to get served? Many thanks.

Hey TSFOR if you're going to come here trying to wind us up at least have the balls to do it without getting your excuses ready in the unlikely event that we beat you.

 

I fancy a 1000+ crowd.

What heritage is that then? Spectacularly going from the old Div 2 to non-league? A decent run in the FA Trophy is the best you can hope for these days. Carrot crunching mug.

Sorry I don't recall making excuses. Would be hard to make excuses about something that is impossible to happen

I'll jog your memory you carrot crunching mug (well said BH)

 

In almost every post you have prepared an excuse for defeat by chucking in "we're not interested in the Trophy"

 

You're interested enough to spend the day on our messageboard talking about the game.

 

Methinks they are a tad worried about about little old us.
