Crumbs, I'm first for once. By tradition, I believe I'm supposed to make an amusing comment about Wallsall's badge. It looks like a soldier's helmet from ancient times. No, not THAT sort of helmet. As there's no attendance prediction thread, I'll naughtily put my guess here. 3,500 with 300 away. I don't predict a riot. Or a rout.
Could it be a Viking Longboat caught in the act of capsizing?
It's a giant swallow getting in the way of an eclipse
Glad to escape the league after the recent disappointments.
Different league opposition, a few rotations, different viewing position and the start of a decent cup run hopefully.
Are there any legal places to watch the game online today?
According to Walsall’s Twitter they’ve already sold well over three hundred tickets. It’d be nice to get a crowd closer to 4000 than 3000, but I’m not holding my breath.
Afraid not 🙁
Walsall had sold 444 as of yesterday, they can also buy on the day.
Can't see it being much over 2000 today, possibly 2500.
We're a bit limited in terms of how much we can rotate, but maybe something like...
Grimmer, Forino, Mawson, JJ
Kaikai, Horgan, McCleary (can Mellor play wide left?)
Is it on Wycombe Sound today?
9 subs available to be named on the bench. Might see some new development team names in the squad.
That’s a great effort.
In the cup are we allowed to make subs before 70 minutes?
It’s a very good effort by the away support. An easy train journey disrupted, cost of living crisis in a difficult part of the country, poor weather. We are obviously a massive draw!
I like their badge, a reference to their heritage name - which was also great.
2, 378 with 476 Sadlers.
1-0 to us.
Oddly, I think I was almost 100% on the same wave length there. With maybe Freeman keeping his place while he's got a run going.
Not if GA is in charge. Don’t want to give the subs anytime to make an impact.
Think Mawson gets a rest today
Big game today. As always for the FA Cup, I'm much more nervous than I would be for a league fixture. Whilst a certain amount of rotation is fine, we really do need to be strong today. Defeat and the season suddenly begins to look something of a long slog.
Ideally, but do we have any other fit CBs?
Dickinson's back from his loan
If Taf is fit. But Forino being injured probably forces Alfie to play
How odd. He was playing pretty regularly there. Although i’ll admit to not understanding our approach to the loan market at all.
Ah crap, forgot Forino was injured
Ticket sales look terrible (loads of availability in Family stand, even in central 3 blocks), I take back my moan around the FA Stand closing.
I don’t know why people aren’t interested in the FA Cup, a fantastic competition.
A non sth game at the end of a run of home games.
the perception that we’re in poor form
GA’s selection policy.
take your pick sadly, still the most exciting single game of the season for me.
Forest Green look like a right dirty bunch. Good thing we haven't got them next in the league...
It's a fact that we're in poor form!
Much stronger team that I was anticipating.
