  • God! i didn’t know Gayle played for them, pretty big name for a club their size. Should be an interesting affair…middle of winter, both clubs eager for a win for a big-name in’t 4th round…all the hallmarks of a typical English cup tie! Can’t wait!

  • Yep I agree with Bellenduos complacency worries me to. I hope they go into this one as they would against Notts Forest, which of course will mean a stuffing for Forest..come on the boys….
