    Can't wait to to make them taste Man City's medicine: as the vastly more expensive side roll into town, dominate them in possession and scrape a narrow victory.

    For those saying this could be a banana skin: no.

    No it could not.

    There is no precedent for a 6th tier team beating a Premier League club and for good reason. I've seen plenty of matches a that level and the gulf is far, far too large, 10x the gulf between us and Man City. I'm not having any comments saying we could plausibly lose or draw this match.

    It will likely be a pedestrian 3-0 win with our second XI. If we play well it will be 6-0 or so.

    That's not disrespecting Woking who are having a good season, it's just fact and I'm a lover of non league football.

    There's a thread about us on their forum.

    Who's the belter from here who's gone over there saying this nonsense:

    'I'm from that forum you mention and you have to take everything said with a large pinch of salt. It's all very much tongue in cheek and don't get offended by anything that's said.'

    ******* hell mate, youve made us looking a right bunch of fannies. What's the thought process behind posting something like that to strangers in the internet?

    I can assure all the small time Woking folk who don't even live in Woking that I'm most certainly not joking. Can't stand them. I don't even know where the place is or what league they are in. I assume they have some sort of run down shopping mall that's full of mobile phone repair shops and key cutter 'pop up' stores?

    They'll no doubt try and clog us off the pitch in our game. I can only hope they get injuries themselves, meaning the poor Woking folk don't get their post the day after.

    I'm embarrassed that in this day and age we have to go through this awful 3rd round nonsense when all the big teams, like us, should be given byes whilst all the little teams like Woking, Farnborough and Nuneaton should fight it out amongst themselves for a 'well done you tried' rosette.

    Is Woking away safe to go to?

    At last we have found a new rival.. bye bye Bournemouth!

    Honestly though i think this **** might get serious. There's already a warning on Woking's website to protect our women and young children down there.
    There are a few theories as to why this warning was issued.. but personally i think it's because War of the Worlds is set in Woking and they are worried our women and children might get abducted by Martians.

    I think he recognises this by using a different name. If you infiltrate another teams board, use the same name...unless your Moog.

    I see they couldn't miss out Man U or Liverpool !

    To be fair Wolves-Liverpool is a reasonable pick. But anyone who thinks Man U-Reading is a good choice would be stark raving bonkers.

    There are 3 certain things in life, 1) Taxes, 2) Death and 3) Utd being on the TV every round of the FA Cup even if they got a bye to the next round. (Then they would just televise an empty Old Trafford).

    Agreed there - Chelsea v Forest might have been more interesting if they wanted to show one of the top sides at home.

    Not like Man U are playing attractive football either.

    Well, we're very honoured and no mistake.

    A visit from the bloody gentry! We shall all have to smarten ourselves up a bit and comb our hair before we roll out the red carpet to welcome the limousines and carriages of the fine ladies and gentlemen of bloody Woking!

    England's answer to Beverly Hills. Home to Sir Cliff, John Terry, Mick Hucknall, Theo Paphitis and Chris Tarrant and other residents who are less appealing than those magnificent superstars.

    Containing what's described on Wikipedia of being made up of "an assortment of very large homes (mansions)". The clarification in brackets is needed to emphasise that we're talking more than just big houses here. We're talking palaces. Woking is the sort of barrio where even our Lord @zztop would be sent round to the tradesman's entrance.

    And this so-called 'Woking' is just the sporting wing of the same bosses and oppressors y'know.

    Oh yes. A few hirelings running around for the amusement and delectation of those same purpled Surrey emperors. Come on our chaps!

    Speculators, landlords, money hungry diddlers and twisters who daily enjoy unashamed opulence and consumption whilst pretending not to notice the misery all around. That is Woking.

    Tories! Brigands! Thieves!

    Hornets and Hornettas! Be Clear! For me and for anybody else who has blood in their veins, this match is the most important of the season.

    We must win at any cost and we must win big.

    We must play the full first team and no rotation.

    On 85 minutes, once we're safely 9 goals up and coasting, please all WFC fans go into the toilets and all lay a deuce in the urinals, filling them up. and on the floors. And in the sinks. Wreck their shitty little ground even more than it already is.

    Not to mention Birmingham! I mean, has this fella ever been near that ground? It is a seriously run-down part of town. Glamorous? Er, no.
     
  30. Tickets will go on sale to group A++ first, which is a bit like Canada+++ without David Davis.
    A++ = 40 or more aways against fan ID since July '14. I had a bit of a panic as I had been allocating some of mine to my daughter to build her entitlement up but I've got 47.

    Impressed they've managed to get over 1000 tickets for away fans out of a less than 6000 crowd. I suppose tickets will sneak into the A category but no chance for those of us in B, even though our away attendance since 2014 matches those in A [angry smiley]
     
  33. Site doesn't mention whether A++ have to be ST holders (but probably do given that A and A+ are)

    If you go to the ticket site and log in, then go to your purchase history, the award of group a+ 0r group A++ is shown as a complimentary purchase as of yesterday.
    Group A+ will allow you to purchase for the Bournemouth match.
    I gather (as I have been awarded A++) that if you have not been awarded already, then you are not entitled to A++ status for the Woking game.
    Bearing in mind that it is on TV, I think that everyone in group A+, and probably most in group A should be successful.

    Will the big-side away fan rules apply? You know, the one that occurs when the big boys come to town and home fans kindly give up their seats for opposition fans and the one where nobody can get a tigget but there are loads of touts selling them outside the ground and half and half scarves.
