Quarter of the Season gone. Time for assumptions?

 George Mulhall had the right idea and he took us up.

We could make a considerable amount of money from The FA Cup but whoever is serious about League football will have league games as priority as he did. 

Didn't do Lincoln much harm with their FA Cup progress.

True but their squad was much bigger than ours. Do you think we could do the same as them with more games, injuries and suspensions?

How many Saturday's are set aside without league fixtures for FA Cup games?

Believe DB stated the managers told progression in FA cup essential.

Given Oldhams FA Cup run last season under Wild, I am sure he will want a repeat this season.

I think our squad of 21 is in better shape than previous. 2 players with long term injuries are now due to return, so we are not carrying any long term injury issues as we did last season.

As long as we do not suffer the same fate & just pick up the odd short term injury, a good cup run would aid our match fitness of squad players.

We have a good balanced squad for a club our size & a FA cup run would bring in much needed revenue.

W8 D1 L3 so far this season. W5 D3 L4 this point last season. W6 D3 L3 the season before that, if I'm correct. The slump was well underway under Fullarton, and it was just about to start under Heath.

There's a long way to go and lots that can happen. Dips in form and injuries and suspensions. Other teams gaining form and also strengthening through the course of the season.

If we did achieve a play off spot there's also who we play against etc etc etc.

But, one good thing is it's in our hands. We are in the play off spots and there's a gap. We could obviously be top after Tuesday night which is even better but as long as that gap opens up even more then happy days.

Pete will be keeping them grounded and taking each game as it comes but it's a nice position to be in so let's hope the lads can stay there.

Or maybe go one further.........

Have we signed a player I don't know about Mr. Macam?

Hopefully no suspensions with our well behaved lads

I had a dream that we played Watford in the FA Cup 3rd round . Unfortunately I woke up before our 4th round game

Did we beat them 8-0 with Elton John congratulating us on our win & witty chants:huh:

He didn't see much of the game he was in Elton John's private box. He was the half time entertainment.

Check the squad pinned on the forum, think you are adding the young lad on trial but not signed.
