Playing as we are, we could be destined for a good FAC run.  Anything like Lincoln’s would bring joy, glory, money and kickstart our progress.

We have the team and the fans.  Nobody would expect anything from a NL Club.  Certainly not good football, teamwork and individual skill.

Lincoln’ opponents underestimated them and played weakened sides. If we did progress, they might play kids against us as we are a lower league team. They might be in for a shock.  Who knows.

FA Cup is nice if you make the 3rd round and get a very good draw ( Man U away), the trophy for us this season is a complete waste, games played on Saturdays, so league games moved, additional games, not required, this season everything has to be into the league, basically finishing top to avoid the playoff gamble.

Winning cup games keeps that winning mentality.

If we don't go up this season do we sack the cup off next year too? And the year after?

In the FA Cup especially, you can earn an absolute fortune if you progress far enough or draw the right team in Round 3.

If we got to the 3rd round that would be a good piece of progress.

In terms of a dream draw I think you get a better cut of the gate so if a club our size got a top team away that would in my mind be better than packing out BP.

Re the trophy it would be nice to go to a Wembley final as I’m sure if we’d already won promotion we’d surely p1ss it …….. wouldn’t we? 🤦‍♂️

First team for the F.A. Cup, Fringe players for the Trophy.

Would love a good F.A. Cup run. Could earn enough to clear all the historic debt if we are lucky.

Apart from the excitement of it.
