I'm a fan of parrots, 10/10 on the badge for me.
Definite 10/10 - an absolute beauty.
I think I put this top 10 in my FourFourTwo badge list
Very good badge that. Wikipedia informs me that the badge references as far back as King Cnut (the crosses representing the See of Canterbury who held Cheam when Cnut the Great was on the throne).
The parrot has just smashed a penalty straight down the middle.
Love the badge...whose keys are those?
Should definitely change their rather uninspiring nickname to ‘The Parrots’
Or the Cnuts
Isn't Joey Barton King Cnut? Oh wait...
Sutton have made the second round for the first time ever.
It's their cup final!!!
A busy badge and I see this:-
The gold and silver discs in the top third are from the arms of the Borough of Sutton and Cheam. The keys symbolise the ownership of Sutton by the Abbey of Chertsey at the time of the Domesday survey, while the popinjay is from the arms of the Lumley's, former lords of the manor in Cheam. Strange to relate the Wanderers are not even on this:-https://www.footballcrests.com/uk-clubs.php
Good chance to progress and potential big ties next round.
Expect McCarthy to be given minutes at RWB. Imagine Taf, Taylor, Grimmer, JJ all ruled out injured. Is Phillips cup tied? I think Scowen and Vokes will start after missing pre season and still need to top up their minutes.
Stryjek, McCarthy, Keogh, Low, Forino, Boyes, Scowen, Potts, McCleary, Vokes, De Barr
Subs: Shala, Leahy, KVY, Pattenden, Ward, Breckin, Hanlan
Nine subs allowed in Carabao!
My one thought would be McCarthy perhaps at CB instead of Keogh, to rest the old warhorse for Saturday!
Plus Phillips not cup tied (no Prem teams in first round). I believe De Barr is injured so will be surprised if he plays tonight.
Sorry to be THAT GUY, but isn't it a parakeet?
My team for what it’s worth:
McCarthy, Forino, Keogh, Low, Leahy
Potts, Breckin, Phillips
subs: Shala, Vincent-Young, Boyes, Scowen, Wheeler, Hanlan, Pattenden, Skura, Clark.
I was thinking the short tail made it more reminiscent of a lovebird.
It's a popinjay.
Basic ornithological knowledge.
I will always remember where I was for the great Sutton Bird Debate of 2023.

Great badge apart from the actual shield, maybe ran out of time.
It would be madness to not give this fixture 100%. Big pay day on the horizon. A chance to keep momentum going.
Any website that includes the badge of The Pathetic Sharks FC is either incredibly thorough or random. In this case it's the latter.
You always know what you are going to get from the tide.
A perfect chance to win 2 in a row for the first time under MB too.
With got good strength in depth now - whatever team we put out should do the job against a poor L2 team.
On the Sutton forum a fan hopes they can win. I haven't cherrypicked that post, it's basically the only post about tonight on their forum.
Very strong team. Definitely going for it.
Wheeler back amongst the subs. Great to see.
