Seems it's a forgone conclusion that Sunday's result will be a home win, and why not they've only lost twice at home this season in all competitions.
They may be good at home but they are dire away from home, losing the same number as they have won [at home] in all competitions.

Plan is simple then, take the lead, get the draw, drag them up here and we're through to the next round.
They already think they only have to turn up. Allegedly didn't even start preparing for the game until Thursday, had extra rest period due to it only being little old struggling Hartlepool.
Hopefully they'll get leggy late on and we'll get the winner in the 90+ minute.

Let's get in amongst them, spoil their party and start our own Christmas celebrations.

Struggling to get excited by this tie. Our away form has gone tits up recently and Vale are a good home side. Vale will stroll it then we can focus on the relegation struggle.

Always excited by the FA Cup, shame some of the Premier League clubs are less enthusiastic, a draw and replay at the NGP Stadium would be excellent.

Can't say I expected us to win but to capitulate completely is really poor.

Why move Toto, who has just started to settle and come into his own at centre half, over to right back where he's unfamiliar? Guess what, the first two goals come straight from the right back position.

The whole thing is just comedy from start to finish. Why he's got Richards on the bench and is shuffling players out of position and putting Rob Jones back in there beats me.

We're all at sea, the manager is lost. Next Saturday is a massive game.

Never in a million years expected us to win but to come away with an absolute thrashing is more than disappointing, thought we might have at least turned up.

Seems the manager's plan B is 'revert to plan A'. He's got the same illness of previous incumbents....square pegs in round holes, keep moving them round until by good luck rather than good management something works [for a while at least]. Gives false hopes to the players, building them up, finding a place for them in the team then turning them into a 'patsy' when things go wrong.

Get a settled pair at the back, strong midfield and experience up front, the ingredients are all there. With continuity will come consistency.

Cambridge are a side on the up and yesterday's result against Coventry could very easily be repeated on Saturday....if we're not careful. That would probably signal the beginning of the end for Hignett and Co.

Oh and have a look at the way we're marking, it needs changing.
