    FA Cup Draw

    So Derby in the first round of the FA Cup since 1985 (I think) and are away to either Torquay United/Hampton and Richmond it would be nice to have a decent cup run, with a big draw in the 3rd or 4th round.

    Yay, we will be a giant killer by sneaking past Rotherham 1-0 at home in the 3rd round! Lots to look forward to there........

    Not going to win it but a Cup run does bring financial rewards we could use to improve the squad. Considering we are under a strict "business plan" (the Toraidh would call it austerity ) this and next season, building up a decent war chest for the 84/85 season would be excellent.

    I think people do care, Swale...it’s just difficult to get excited before the involvement of the ‘big boys’.
    To me the order of importance is League One, FA/Carabao Cup...especially now we have a big draw in the latter, and then the EFL/Pizza Cup which, again to me, is just an irritating distraction and a measure of how far we’ve fallen.
    Agree it would be nice to have a decent 3rd/4th round draw in one of the great competitions.
