The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

The players will be well up for it with a guaranteed televised game, and if we're frightened of Newport away then we don't be deserve to be in the Football League.

We took the old adage of "attack is the best form of defence" and we changed it to "defence is the best form of attack"..... it clearly wasn't ( although we almost fluked it )

We have a decent chance in the replay.  Newport did lose their last home game to Salford.  They are not exactly world-beaters are they?

Salford must have something about them.... they beat us too when by rights we should have got at least a draw from the game

Not sure what though as I thought they were a poor outfit that night....  Alexander seems to have them doing ok though so maybe they have a format and stick to it
