>The Thrill of the Cup


Are you as excited about Saturday as I am? Let’s be honest, it’s the tie of the round; pity the TV coverage doesn’t kick in yet!

Why is it the best match to come out of the hat? It’s obvious: a side going like a train against one three divisions above but stuttering for form, and it’ll be held at the minnows’ ground, where they can guarantee excellent, vociferous support while the visitors always come mob-handed. It’ll have the atmosphere of a cup tie like no other match this Saturday.

It sort of brings to mind the Wrexham-Arsenal game and dozens of other such ties at The Racecourse over the years.

But hang on, we were always the underdogs rising to thrilling victory in those games; now the boot’s on the other foot. Maybe I shouldn’t be feeling quite so eager!
