FA Trophy Quarter finals

Recommended Posts

I seriously dislike how the cup fever has made people think we are entitled to winning due to our sheer size.

I don't care if we ended up winning the FA Trophy, if it means bragging about winning it and the FA Cup. It just highlights how poor we have been in recent years, whilst on the other end it shows we can do well in a cup. I would have preferred a decent FA Cup run myself, it's worth more in revenue but some turned their noses up at that. It's all about opinions at the end of the day, but if we win, it will be cause we earned it - not due to our stature or size.

I am seeing more interest expressed in the cup, I hope people don't judge others for showing the FA Trophy more attention and just focus on the club.

Notts at Wembley tends to be a sign of better things to come, it would be nice to go back. For those who put no importance on this, think about what happens if Notts wins it and make the playoff final.

That excitement and experience will just be empowering.


I look at it as a slight distraction from the league campaign, but in all fairness, they’ll be fans out there who have never seen Notts play at a large stadium, never mind ever playing at Wembley.

It’s not the FL play off finals, but those memories stay with you forever, so for younger fans, I say enjoy the experience if we get there.

Now if we’re there twice this season due to playoffs and the cup, then what a couple of weeks that will be!

We need to treat the opposition with respect and take the game seriously. We are just two wins away from Wembley now, and I am totally up for a trip to Wembley. Let's win every game and get a trophy to go next to the Anglo-Italian Cup. With a little luck we might never have another chance ;)

We need to extract every last bit of fun and glory out of this season that we can. It's also worth considering that the final (if we make it) is a week after the play-off final. If it all goes pear-shaped with promotion, a trip to Wembley and maybe a trophy would take us into next season on a high instead of a play-off hangover.

If Notts wins, I believe two more will be postponed.

The final is the week after the play-off final, long after the regular league has finished. So if we win, there will be only one extra match to fit in to our schedule (provided we don't draw).

If we do reach the semi-finals, we will therefore have nothing to lose, so why not gun for glory and a cup? You only live once.
