857 and counting...

Every Poppies fan slept a little easier last night, after our FA Cup campaign purred into life with a comfortable passage into the 2nd qualifying round.  Just two more wins and we could be in the hat with Boreham Wood or Bromley!

Whilst few expect us to actually win the competition, it would be nice to go deep into the qualifying rounds - maybe even progressing as far as hearing our name in the classified check again.  And just as importantly, adding a few more goals to our tally at the top of the all time leader board.

We need to keep Villa where they belong, firmly in second place with just their solitary European Cup as consolation. We certainly don’t need a repeat of their unexpected run to the final last season, which almost nibbled our lead down to single figures before they gave Arsenal about as much of a game as we would. 

Thankfully they’ve since sold their only decent striker, and already have an extra 5 goal deficit which is bound to heap extra pressure on their unprolific forward options.

Meanwhile let’s keep on extending that lead!
