Yes!!! Looks like we have an easy route to the FA Cup 4th Round. Although saying that, I think I would rather be knocked out, so we can fully concentrate on our promotion.

I really would not call that an easy route to the next round!

This being the team he put out against Villa at Villa park and were pipped late on, in a game they arguably should have got at least a point out of.

I meant easier than what it would have been, sorry about that :p Anyway, I am looking forward to the game, no matter what team Ian plays. Looking forward to seeing the Tangerine Army in full swing too, I hope.

They're not all that impressive... pretty quiet and boring on Tuesday night.
Although they are traveling really well at the moment, so should be a good atmosphere.

Does that mean we can look forward to another Holloway rant or will it be accepted this time? :S

its not a premier league game, he is entitled to field whatever team he likes. its the premier league rules that state you must field your strongest possible side, which is bullshit anyway!

he has already made a few comments to SSN about it, love the man, what a legend
