What are the FA doing?! They really are run by a bunch of bafoons!

Seeding for cups, surely the draw should be a lottery? Once again they pander to the bigger teams. I thought Dyke was the answer to shake up those pompous idiots but he seems to be the biggest fat cat of the lot!!!

League 3, B teams, seeded draws what a bunch of nonsense...why tinker with the game we love to keep a few happy?!

Would like us to get the Yellow scum at home and give them a good stuffing.
The Pox set to struggle next season under Waddock plus if we play them a decent crowd as well as opposed to the normal low gates.
If not them then Luton would be a good alternative as they would bring a few and i expect them to do well next season in L2.

The first round has been "seeded" for years. Those in the top half of league one based on the previous seasons league table are seeded. This year the top 13 last season are seeded.... Crawley who finished 14th are not. It is worth every season playing for those positions as potentially you are just one game away from a high profile club in round 2.. or round 3.

This seeding is not the FA or anything to do with Dyke..it's a football league tournament.

Didn't think I'd ever see the day when I wouldn't be excited by the draw for the League Cup or the FA Cup but both competitions are now treated with such disrespect by so many clubs that it's hard to tell a good result from a victory over someone who couldn't care less whether they progress or not. Arry, to name just one manager, clearly couldn't give a toss about going out early last season. Are these once great competitions really worth the effort now?

All this B/S we don´t even know if the Club will exist after the court caseif LP misses out can you see Jed and cronies puting in money???
Plus this must be costing a few Bob,I think it´s not really knowing the truth/facts as to why this is happening.
All these smoke screens,just wish AB had not given the club away for 1GBp,yet the FL approved Jed and Co makes you think.
Just get a bad feeling about the whole thing as on the surface Jed wants money I ask for what???????
LP may just say enough is enough and walk away

changing subject again i see Jeds mate who took over at Hereford couldnt cough up the money to pay some of the creditors by the deadline the league gave them which was the 7th june so they have been kicked out the conference. They mention the new owner and his consortium i wonder if the **** Jed was part of another villanous plot and maybe a consortium with no money. I think when he attemted himself he said he had backers from India maybe another load of chicken farmers.
All our fellow L1 opponents are signing players and he is doing his utmost to destroy this club by doing what he is doing and delaying this court case as long as he can to the 27th.
The guy is a ---- rhymes with Hunt.

It would be good to get easier tie in round one , as the likes of Manchester united , Villa and Newcastle come in at the second round stage ( unusual for Man Utd) so could be a money spinner .

That's not what Arry said in his interview after the match..or his team who were desperate to get back into the game during the last half an hour ...oh and the fact that win took us to a national televised game and a full County Ground...not to be sniffed at.

Cleuso, you probably remember the interview better than I do but I certainly recall thinking he didn't seem bothered about it. I see my post has met with a lot of disapproval. Does anyone seriously believe either of the Cup competitions has any real magic now? The Chelsea game should have been a great cup occasion - win or lose - but it was no more than a glorified training session. We didn't even live up to the part of gallant losers, as we seemed more interested in keeping the score down to 2 instead of having a go at them. As a Town fan who's seen most of our great cup exploits, I love both competitions. It's just that the game as a whole seems to have decided that they're unimportant now. We even have the Cup Final kicking off at ridiculous o'clock. Nothing's sacred!

You may be right, but that was a fantastic night at Loftus Road and probably the highlight of my season just gone, along with a good display at Wolves, beating Brentford and Bristol City at home, etc. Not every club may be bothered by it but the cup games still give us some good times (not even including the Chelsea game in that - could've gone, didn't really fancy it to be honest - sounds odd but it wouldn't have felt like a town game to me with the amount of Chelsea fans I'd heard were in the ground. That and being a midweek one would've been awkward as always).

Basically what I'm saying is the cups may not be what they were but I'd rather have them than not and still hoping for a good draw (not necesarily a big draw, could be an Oxford or for a change someone like AFC Wimbledon).

Don't know why some fans want the Pox except bragging rights if we beat them. However in recent years even with them being inferior to us they still manage to beat us. What I want is just to get through to the next round and then the next etc.
There's a lot of uncertainty around at present, who owns us? will we have a team fit to compete? will we have a club ? I hope Power beats Jeds rabble and we get a team fit to compete for promotion and also to progress in cup competitions.

Point taken, it's not a great place to go - as I said before it'd be one thing on a weekend but don't really fancy wandering round that place of a Tuesday night. Bandit country.
