Peter, yes it would. The ball number you are in the next round draw is the match number you were in the previous round. In the case of the third round the Premier and Championship teams are numbered 1 to 44 alphabetically, then second round match 1 is ball 45, match 2 ball 46 and so on. So yes, we would have been at home to Man Utd Evil or Very Mad

Unlike the COC when I believe teams are in alphabetical order for each draw.

We really did make our choice badly with those two.

I concur with this 100%

Hi Sussex Boy,

How can they 'repeat' the 1988 cup final when they weren't in it?

Kind regards,

Ok, I'm hooked. Wink

I am intrigued as to how a team formed in 2002 (as a matter of public record) were in a cup final in 1988...........

They claim to have won the FA Cup in 1988 and to have risen from the bottom of the pyramid since their formation in 2002. It is possible for one of these phrases to be accurate but not both!

What is frustrating is that we had two winnable games against teams below us (Yeovil and Accy) which could have given us a plum game and some much needed cashflow. Instead we went out without a whimper. Journeyman John should be feeling sick about that this morning.

Would the draw have been constructed the same if we had beaten Yeovil? I've not taken any interest in the draws since we were knocked out so don't know how the numbering of the teams were decided.


Yes, FA Cup ball numbers are allocated by tie number so we would have had the same ball.

The alphabet only comes into it when new teams join in, so tie one of Round 2 was ball 45 for the 3rd round draw, just as tie one of the 4q was ball 49 in the draw for the first round.

Yeovil and Accrington were both winable games if we had played as we should. In effect the poor performance has cost the club in excess of a million pounds with added sponsorship, TV etc.

Maybe 250,000... it would have been a home tie. 40/50k each on the gate, 144k for TV money, plus your add ons.

Yup, me too. They are bringing this club down, but it's OK, JG has said anything less than 8th is a failure, so we will be fine.

I reckon more than that Ian, Aldershot made circa 250 from their League cup tie a couple of years back.

Let's be honest the club would have sold the game out and tickets would have been at least 30 to stand and 40 to sit so I think the gate receipts would have been higher

1000 people in the BWS at 30 a pop gives us revenue of about 12k just from that.

Whatever the number could of been, it just goes to show how costly that defeat was and what a pair of clowns we have in the dugout, because lets be fair, we were just unlucky against Yeovil, just plain *beep*
