Tomorrow night sees a break from league matters (maybe a good thing?!) and a first ever League Cup 2nd round tie. We head up to Buckinghamshire to face Wycombe - now unbeaten in their last 3 in League One - they beat fellow League Two side MK Dons in the previous round. Sutton of course have previous with Wanderers with a couple of epic games 30 years ago, winning 3-2 at Adams Park (our last visit there) - I won’t mention the home leg 😞.
Our squad will be lifted by the return of Harry Smith (feels like he’s been out for an age) but I’m guessing Easty will be absent again just like he was on Saturday.
Our first League Cup giant-killing. Does it count when it's against a club we have played and beaten (and lost to) so many times before ? That was not an easy watch 2nd half but I thought we were excellent first half, good football and worth more than one goal.

That was an immense performance tonight from everybody from one through to twelve (and before any pedantic posters start to point out that there is only eleven on the field - I'm referring to our support tonight as the 12th man!)
I'm sure that the players appreciated each and every supporter that turned up at Adams Park either on the supporters coach or travelling independently and the various diversionary routes that people took to get there due to the lorry fire on the M25 (I'm aware of Kew Bridge & Brentford, Datchet, Ascot & Bracknell, Windsor, etc as some of the various routes). From minute one until our players left the field post-match our support sang loud and proud and your support did not go un-noticed. Please can we try to generate somewhere near the same vocal support at home starting on Saturday against Forest Green as the vocal support tonight was unreal!
ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?

scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

scorpioeyes: yes,'arrogant' is the right word. No objectivity allowed!

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

neil: My father used to take to watch Queens Park Rangers back in the late 60's (I recall he knew one of the Directors at the club). I still have many programmes from that time through the 70's. Happy Days !

holmesdale96: Sorry to hear of Danny's death, a real loss. I saw him regularly during the 90's at his home in Streatham, always charged the same small fee for years, an absolute gentleman with his dear wife Rose. RIP Danny
