Big games in the League in February. FGR and Barnet away on Trophy dates, Bristol Rovers home in between (and Braintree at Home) .

Do we really want to still be in the Trophy - February looks very important for promotion! It's not just what team we play but the importance of the matches that will be moved to midweek in a crowded March/April.

If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

If we don't sacrifice first team players yes.The trophy could be good for giving youngsters a chance

The flip side is what if team we are due to play are still in the trophy???

I can't believe that Fgr could still (AGAIN) be moved to a midweek game!

“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

FA Trophy - Practice games for fringe and youth players please - sorry, this has got to be a season where the be all and end all is promotion, and if we have a cup run, please let it be in the real one - the FA Cup, where we could draw some REAL revenue from a larger league team, if possible, to bolster a promotion run.

The trophy games ruined our promotion run last year, leading to postponements, suspensions and back log of games which was no good leading to a play off situation.

Count them as reserve run-outs rather than full squad games.

I wonder how our promotion rivals will treat the games ??

Unless some have larger squad numbers than us??

I hope we get Barnet away in the 1st round and play a 2nd XI.

We can 'concentrate on the league' without having to lose to someone I've never heard of and they can stay in it!

surely the title should be 'DO WE STILL WANT TO BE IN THE TROPHY'?

answer to both titles is the same anyway - no & no & no & no & no
