    Default FA Cup 3rd Round: Nottingham Forest/Forest Reserves vs Arsenhole/Arsenhole Reserves

    [Covid permitting]


    I'm going to this one, and it's my first live match in three years (bloody fair-weather fan), so time to warm up the vocal chords...

    ..."Same old Arse-nal, al-ways cheat-ing!"

    Anyway...

    Who:

    Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal

    What:

    The FA Cup in the 3rd round of what was the greatest domestic club football knockout competition 'til those wankers at Sky ruined it.

    Where:

    The world famous City Ground.

    When:

    Sunday 9th January @ 17:10, get it in yer diaries.

    Why:

    Two balls with Forest and Arsenal's numbers were picked out of a bag by a man who is named after something that also comes from a ball bag, David Seaman, and by Faye White respectively. This method of drawing teams to play each other is usually how it works, but there is still plenty of time for those wankers at Sky to ruin it.


    COYR!

    Lose 0-4. Nobody cares.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Absolutely impossible to forecast the outcome of this one because so much rides on whether either coach takes it sufficiently seriously to pick their best side.
    Me and the Mrs will be in our thermals, taking our seats and just enjoying being there, whatever the outcome.
    I hope our new signings feature!

    Let's be honest: we all care deeply.
    1 It is NFFC;
    2 It is at the WFCG;
    3 It is the world's oldest knock out cup competition.
    4 We have a great coach, some brilliant signings to join a wonderful squad.
    5 Win 4-2

    I'm going, taking all the family as they want to see Arsenal. I've tried telling them it'll be two reserve sides but as usual no-one listens to me.

    Lose three one.

    congo_red appreciates this level of analysis.

    In all seriousness, every matchday poll probably needs a 'Postponed due to Covid' option at the moment.

    Sounds as though the FA Cup has different rules to the league, they expect every fixture to be fulfilled even if it's the kids playing (suppose that's what Derby had to do last season).

    If our academy lads all have the bat lurgy as well then that could be interesting...

    Nailed on they will be playing a lot of fringe players due to first teamers going to afcon and also that they probably don't need to play their first team to win anyway.

    The likes of Charlie Patino, that lad who is off to Boro who was linked with us, will probably be involved.

    Given the injuries we do have, which won't shift as quickly as those who do have covid, we might not have much opportunity to mix it up either.

    I notice Shelvey has been recalled from Mansfield, not sure if this is coincidence with a shortness of numbers in the keeping department, or if they've recalled him to send him off somewhere else for the rest of the season.

    Has he played much for Mansfield? I think he's only appeared in the League Trophy games?

    Probably another reason why. I know he's young but you loan a player out for them to get experience. Being in a squad for them and not playing isn't any benefit to him, he might as well be playing in the 23s here.

    Sorry Tiff but your not allowed to post this in case someone at work gets caught not working by their boss and they see a half naked squirrel in their internet history.

    The 2cnd Division title is THEE priority.
