Draw on Monday after 7pm, we're No 16.

A draw at home against a non-league team would be good although for most I suspect Dover away would be ideal.

Being selfish, away to York/Curzon Ashton or Halifax would be ideal, but please, NOT Barrow.

Two easy wins in rounds 1 and 2 please, then a trip to Tottenham or Arsenal just to be able to sing 'How beep must you be ...'

Would that song work at an FA cup fixture??
I wouldn't have thought so.

Dover us a ****hole probably only 'ever so slightly beyter' than the dump of Wrexham so id rather match was played in area of outstanding natural beauty and ambience of West Sussex.

It's funny how every season at this stage we clamour over the idea of Dover away.

Would be top notch but it never happens.

Was thinking that we've had some lovely away cup trips... personal favourites are a club down in the New Forest (Lymington?) where the local scout troops provided the hot-dogs... and that Hockton-inspired comedy turkey shoot at Flackwell Heath...

...also that dreadful defeat at Whyteleafe (we hadn't even made it into September) when a mad five minutes saw us let in 3 goals, but the natives were very friendly and it finished up with embraces & wishing them good luck in the competition... a few I know wouldn't mind returning to Guiseley some time either.

Edit: I remembered it was Lymington & New Milton FC

Nice 'easy' away game at a traditional non league ground would be nice.

I felt very down after Whyteleafe.

What made it worse was the fact we got it back to 3-2 (Peter Garland twice, the second a pen when the keeper should have been red carded).

It's the hope that kills you. Every time.

Can you believe we were starting in the 1st Qualifying Round back then.

True.

They weren't quite so hospitable on the pitch from what I remember though! violent1 violent1
