    Good draw for us. If we get through another 1 or 2 rounds, I think we should go for it? Why not? Fortune favours the brave.

    Great draw for us for once!!! Usually we’d get Arsenal for sure! Agree with Danish magpie, this would be great to keep this run going as long as we can get some players in before tuesday to help out, otherwise we would have to put out our U19 team!!!
