Are they really going to select sides at step 6 at random and not based on performance????!!!

Absolutely absurd, but why would we expect anything less.

It's just not going to be the same having the early Rounds of the FA Cup in midweek is it, well the Extra Preliminary Round, First Qualifying Round and Third Qualifying Round anyway, I know that replays are midweek and we need to catch up from the usual first Saturday in August start but it just doesn't feel right somehow:

Lucky London Lions you mean. The other two we’re in those places anyway and Winslow has been last couple of seasons prior. Really feel for St Panteleimon who had earned the right, as had Risboro and Vauxhall’s Motors who had their division sewn up. The lack of thought from the FA for football at this level is as ever very disappointing. without being able to have crowds it may not even be feasible for some clubs, if you’re drawn at home and get a tough one and lose you could end up very much out of pocket.

Very lucky Park View, hadn’t noticed them. Why on earth where they even allowed to apply? They were nowhere near.

It will be interesting to see the competition rules when they are published. If you follow current advice of travelling separately to games, then does it mean you pay 18 lots of mileage for the opposition (last season was a maximum of 5 cars per team) Not bad if we get Berko but I wouldn’t want to host a team from the Essex Senior. 
 

Can see a lot of clubs being out of pocket.

Joint travel for match officials goes out of the window.

3 sets of travelling expenses is not going to help Clubs either.

You might just be confined to games where you can use your Oyster Card for the tube and bus but it still gives you plenty of Club's to Officiate at such as Broadfields United, Edgware Town, Harefield United, North Greenford United, Oxhey Jets, Wembley, Amersham Town, Enfield Borough, Hillingdon Borough, London Lions. London Tigers, New Salamis, Park View, Rayners Lane and St Panteleimon. I'm not sure about London Colney, you should be able to get away with that on the 84 bus.

I think it's about a couple of stops out of Potters Bar station where the zone ends on the 84. About £3 after that to London Colney.
