    For any students reading this, the use of a semicolon before a coordinating conjunction, is punishable by a long sentence.

    Which one was Athletic out of that lot?

    Possibly the only positive to our hammering in the final is that hopefully it would have meant more fans and people connected to the club would have finally come round to my view of the cups principally being unwelcome distractions.

    Or do any people on here actually still somehow give a to55 about such non-events?

    Me. I'd always take a Cup win on the way to relegation.

    Not a distraction this year, it's the only chance of anything good coming out of the season.

    .... and Boscombe Athletic.

    Before they went all Continental.

    Thanks. Wow. I never knew they were called Bournemouth and Boscombe... and the AFC means Athletic not Association. Every day a school day

    No, it means Association. They stopped being Athletic when they changed their shirts from Arsenal's to AC Milan's

    I'll take your word over Wikipedia's in that case... I was going to donate a fiver to them but you can have it instead

    We have even less of a chance of winning it this year than last year, and an equal if not greater chance of being humiliated again as soon as we get drawn against a top club.

    Still stand by my statement. What else do we have to look forward to? At least there is the tiniest slither of hope of some excitement.

    If we stood a fighting chance of getting out of our present pickle, I'd agree with you. But I have given up hope of that.

    Being knocked out the cup as soon as we come up against anything decent is nothing to look forward to.

    The only remaining good which can come of this season is perhaps some youth team players gaining some additional experience or breaking in to the first team, and us perhaps eventually stumbling upon a new manager who'll be able to get us promoted again next season.

    Well, again we will have to agree to differ. A run to the quarter finals would be better than nothing in my book. And the rest of the season looks very much like nothing to me.

    How can you doubt the Daily Telegraph?

    Thanks, but maybe I'm not infallible after all, or at least my memory isn't, even if my judgement is. I'd give you my bank account number but you might be dodgy so I won't.

    Pretty sure the Daily Telegraph is one of Moogs.

    Changed in the early 70s when John Bond was their manager. If you listen, their fans still chant “Boscombe” to this day.

    Yes I’d like us to actually win something. What do have against that?

    Are you hanging on for us to to win the title?

    You should be a motivational speaker lowerrous.

    it looks like we are going down in the league so why not have some fun in the cup.

    Also if we do somehow string a little run together it could boost the confidence and help our league form.

    Yes because that's exactly how it worked last season.

    Interrobangs are nonstandard, and should be avoided in formal writing. Their use ruins the academic tone of this forum. Lol.

    What happens in that spare minute for the mental health issue ?

    Do the players all just stand around and we fall silent

    Yeah, just like in the second half against Burnley.
