    Is it goad @Relegation Certs week?

    That’s three bouts he has lined up for the next home match!

    Force RC to stay beyond the end of the first half and make the fights THE half time entertainment.

    When do tickets for Woking go on sale? Forget that, just looked on the website

    From their board:

    However, now it’s sunk in. Watford’s a premier league team. Big boys from the top league who have actually won the cup. They are coming to our home and it will be packed out with a very good atmosphere. Would it be the same the other way round? Possibly not.
    So on reflection, this is a brilliant draw for us and, with respect, may have a chance of winning if not taken seriously a’la Swindon. Would I have like Elland Road? Yes but can’t see too many “home” fans turning out to watch us at their grounds when live on BT for free.

    Oh dear, shall I tell them or let them work it out for themselves?

    They have clearly reviewed Gray's assault on Sherwood & awarded the tie to Watford.

    Supple & sophisticated thinking.

    Are the gate receipts split 50/50 in FA Cup games?

    If so I would hope we donate our half to Woking.

    I believe you can break your journey on a return portion of the ticket. As long as the place is on route and your ticket is in date. Used to do that with tickets to Cardiff, and gone back visiting friends in Bristol before getting a train back to Paddington.

    Gino has earmarked it for buying the Equador u16 squad.

    Yes you are correct, have now found that out, but thanks for replying anyway.

    I presume they are referring to the Herts senior cup which we have been successful in a few times I believe.

    What you are really saying is that you overslept on a train to Bristol, ended up in Cardiff and managed to make it back to Bristol haha!

    Plum duff. Or rhubarb crumble.

    Only Barnet have won it more times and there's no shame in that!

    Rhubarb crumble is hardly a disaster - one of life's great epicurean delicacies - especially if served with lashings of hot vanilla custard.

    Plum duff on the other hand.....

    I won't hear a word being said against rhubarb crumble. Rhubarb seems sadly out of fashion these days.
    Peruvian blueberries from Marks and Sparks were pretty disappointing, I found.

    Rhubarb grows like Topsy in our garden. We can’t eat it fast enough. So we make rhubarb gin.

    There is absolutely no chance that Woking can win. I know that standard well and have played at that level and the gulf in class is going to be too much. I don't even think we will play too much of a weak team against them either. We made 11 changes at Championship Reading and we had internationals all over the pitch and we beat them easily.

    Their central midfielder, Hester-Cook, is 18 & was playing Boys’ football a couple of years with my son. Trialled with QPR but didn’t make the cut.

    Decent player but literally man & boy vs Capoue etc.

    A few Wows short of the Mighty Quina.

    I don't have BT Sport and I assume we've sold our allocation.
    Can I buy the match as a one off deal does anyone know?

    Don't think so. But there will be plenty of ways to find it online I expect.

    Save you cooking on Sunday.
    How about a nice afternoon in the pub watching the match, followed by a meal out, Chinese , Indian, or whatever is your thing.
    Or you could go home with a takeaway.
    Perfect Sunday afternoon and evening.

    They just thumped promotion rivals Billericay 4-0 away and seem pretty confident of beating us. I think most Watford fans would take a draw at this point and the chance to have a go at them at the Vic.

    Woking tickets look and feel like they've been run off on a photocopier. Good opportunity for any forgers out there to make a few bob!

    Really? Maybe they do, but include me out.

    Do Billericay still have 'Dickie' and is he doing very well?

    No, he got a time machine for his birthday and went forward to the 2019 Cup Final to see if Woking got that far. He found out that they didn't

    Any Watford fans who think we win this is deluded. A draw would be a great result.

    We could do with the money a replay would bring so I hope you're wrong.
