Decent tie and a decent chance of getting into the next round. 2nd best away followings in league 2 last year, expect 500+ from them.

Going by the reaction on their forum we'll be lucky to see 50, never mind 500!

Winnable for sure !  
Foolish to under-estimate them but generally over the years, Oxford aren't the greatest side away.

See there's a home league game v Halifax 3 days later...
Perhaps it's a case of 1 game at a time but if players are out on their feet, guess there may be implications.
I'd simply suggest leading 3-0 at half time...  

Quoted from grimsby pete
At least they will come and try to win,

Not park the bus and hope for a replay

On the same subject, would a replay be bad news for us ?
There seems to be no fixture clashing if it gets replayed on the Tues 18th Nov(?) ?
Suppose I'd rather still be in it than out...
That's not say we maybe shouldn't treat it like a must win game - I wouldn't fancy our chances half as much in a replay.

Oxford fans are unhappy - http://yellowsforum.co.uk/thread/19401/cup-first-round-draw-monday?page=3

Looking forward to them underestimating us and getting shown up like Scunny, Northampton and Huddersfield (almost) did last season.

I do enjoy reading stuff like that. Who were they expecting: Bayer Leverkusen?

Wonder if my favourite grimsby resident and oxford fan is pleased with the draw


When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby

Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam

Gosport  v Colchester
Chorley or FC Halifax v Bradford City
Warrington Town v Exeter City
Weston-Super-Mare v Doncaster
Weymouth or Braintree v Chesterfield
Plymouth v AFC Fylde
Canvey Island or Havant & Waterlooville v Preston
Coventry v Worcester City

Is there any parking for their sidecar.

And the only reason opposing fans hate coming to gy, whenever they mention fish, it reminds them of their mrs!

In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.
