FA Cup pricing, I believe, is decided by both clubs as they both get a share of the gate receipts.

Yes I know 6/46 in 9.4 overs in the 2017 Women's World Cup won by England in a nail biting thriller. I was just teasing !

One negative for me, though. That bloody Irene song.
I HATE Goodnight Irene.
It's got to be THE most uninspirational of all football songs. Do they sing it just to send the opposition players and fans to sleep?
I shall stand right next to our drummer in the hope he bangs the drum loud enough to drown that bloody awful song from my ears.


That can be arranged, Hoppy.

Don't disagree with you about much hoppy, but I love that song, well, the Leadbelly version anyway!

Leadbelly wrote the song, he was a genius and we owe so much of the world's musical heritage to him.

Many reasons that Rovers irritate me, but singing that is not one of them!


MCB, I've nothing against Leadbelly, and after reading your post, I braced myself and called up the YouTube of him singing that dreadful song.
I hoped, MCB, that I might have got it wrong and Leadbelly's version would be something special.
No, MCB. IT IS AWFUL!!!!!
It is just a bloody crap song no matter who sings it.

last season 1st rd games were confirmed by the Thursday evening after the draw once the beeb & busby had made their minds up on the live games and the 8 sunday afternoon games.

Personally I hope this is a straight forward Saturday 3pm game.

Looks like we've missed the cut for TV in round 1, doesn't clarify whether it's Sat or Sun yet though...
