Well that’s nice then…What did we actually do to win? I am a bit confused. It can”t be for our togetherness after the spat taking place on here yesterday. I was a bit concerned about coming on here this morning. Thought there might be blood all over the screen or a picture of Hugh stretched out with a knife in his back.
Lmao H64, I can only guess it’s based on fans experience on matchdays and not them visiting the blogs otherwise surely we would have been out in the first round. I expect it’s based on our away support in which case rightly so.
Just caught up on yesterdays posts, it’s sad to see the opposition to this call by Hughie and Iain Dale, I agree with BSB, ol’ Big Soap Box ‘imself, it’s not unreasonable and it shouldn’t be hard to make your point about the club and owners without abuse lies and name calling, tho it seems beyond a few still it would seem as Dale pointed out on the thread. It’s a shame as Iain Dale will walk away from his site before long as he has threatened to do before and they’ll all come on here. It would be fun for a day before Hughie exersizes his banning finger 😂😂😂
Just wondering, if it had been a draw would it had gone to a replay or would there had been penalties ?
