No way would Longlevens want to give up home advantage though and the BBC are only going to turn up if they are at home. If they don't pick this tie as the TV game then they will have made a poor choice.


looking at the draw the only tie to run it close for BBC is probably Marske v South Shields but even thats pushing it

If Enfield 1893 beat Hadley then they would face the supporters trust led breakaway Enfield Town. Would be a potential plum for the BBC.

Isn't Callinan a coach for them? pretty sure he said on one of the Severn sport interviews.

What a draw.

Got upset written all over it on current form.

Fair to say most of our fans, and local football fans in general, aren't going to fit inside Saw Mills.

Hopefully it can be televised or streamed?

He was an assistant yes, not sure if that continues.
I wonder how many ringers they will get signed on.

Having been around local more football more than city in the past 20 years I wouldn't say that there is particularly any hatred or distrust of the club, in fact I'd say on balance people would prefer City if you gave them a choice. I think what's more accurate is that the years if exile has led to many people involved in local football to view city a as a bit of an irrelevance. Out of sight, out of mind etc.

I wouldn't call two gates of over 2000 (since we've been back in the City) an irrelevance and out of sight and mind to be honest, although the team are doing there utmost to throw those new found fans under a bus.

I agree Severnside I was speaking more from an historical standpoint. Purely anecdotally the changing rooms I've been in and around barely mentioned City until very recently. Last couple of years I've definitely noticed an uptick in interest - people checking the result after their own game etc. Probably from the point actual work started on the stadium.
