If we'd got Accy away we were going to sponsor it. :(

At least you were saved the embarrassment of having to give Madine the Motm award by way of him being the only player in black boots :D

Does he wear black boots? Only, I hadn't noticed by dint of him being neither footed. :)

of all the replays listed for next Tuesday night, all bar ours are listed at 19:45, so we might be on the box.

Might be. Though some grounds (like ours) have a standard evening kick off at 8 rather than 7.45.

So could just be that.

ISTR their game against Swansea finished 15 mins later than Bournemouth v Arsenal the other week so I guess they're an 8pm generally.

Ours is 8pm as it's part of the deal with the shops on Middlebrook apparently.

Hope we're on TV as I don't think I can make it, annoyingly.

*IF* we beat Palace we're on the telly v City, which means £140k in the coffers.

It would be a Sunday 4pm kick-off.

If we don't beat Palace, MUFC v Wigan will be on instead. If we do beat Palace, that will be the first time in 55 FA Cup games that the Rags haven't been on the box.

I think we know what we have to do. COYWM

Looks like the City game would be on TV if we beat Palace. Worth an additional £140k to us...

Anyone know if us v City would be on telly if we beat Palace? Only I reckon something like that would be worth £140k or so.

No read the entire thread, so apologies if this has already been mentioned, but if we beat Palace, we might be on the telly next round. I reckon that'll be worth a good £140k to us.

Well, what with Abu Dhabi being just up the road I have it on good authority that playing citeh in the next round would be worth 140k. Obviously I can't reveal my sources.

Having not been to a game since that famous away win at Wimbledon in August, I find myself going to both this one and Southend four days later. We're bound to win one of them.

EDIT: apparently, we've sold out our initial allocation of 500 tickets, but more go on sale at 11am tomorrow (Saturday). I haven't got a ticket yet and was hoping for pay on the day.

Hope the F.A.Cup is the last thing on the players minds tomorrow. Beat Swindon to stop Scunthorpe and Sheffield slipping away from us. Critical..Come on You Whites.... :oyea:

Tickets only available by phone or in person from Bolton Central, but the website says there will be pay-on-the-day.

Play the reserves. lose and get out of this competition....otherwise it will hinder our League 1 form.

Our players are not strong enough they are still mentally weak, and any progress in the cup will just give them further excuses as to why we lose in league 1 to the like of Chesterfield, Oxford, Swindon etc....

I'd suggest a complete turning over by City might be the end of our season, let Sam have another pot at their boss.
