Beautiful blue sky day here in BN1
Fair play to the Grimsby fans. Let's hope it's an enjoyable atmosphere all day long!
For balance.Would be nice if we dialled down the complacency and entitlement.
They’re going to be bang up for this. I predict a physical game and Gillet is an awful referee. Need to bring it on the pitch and stands, you can’t coast through a cup QF no matter who the opponents are.
Oh no - please don't feed the Guiness Boy...Easy win today lads
That's what I'm expecting. Plus some very hard tackling early on to see if we (and the ref) are up for it.It’ll be 10 men back and hope for something on the break. No high press. No space to play into let alone through. It’s not a day for our style of football
Fish on a Sunday? not sure it's the right thyme or plaice for that but tuck in...
Yup. Just like we did at Boro.....Oh!In the best traditions of the Albion, we will make very hard work of this. That's how we roll.
What's more - they have actually won at Wembley as well.I believe Grimsby have played more games at Wembley than BHA. Must be our turn now.
Not sure about “for balance” because I agree. We’re much more like them than we are like Man U IMOFor balance.
In the FA Cup, Grimsby have the same record as us, 2 semi-finals.
In the top tier, the Haddock fanciers better us. Their highest finish is 5th.
In terms of winning the second tier, they hammer us 2-0.
Yes, they’ve been in the lower leagues for some time, but how big could they have got if Bloom went to them instead of us?
Anything is possible in the FA Cup. If they defend like Charlton did, it’s going to be a very long 90mins for us. They are capable of nicking a goal or two or taking us to penalties.
Let’s make sure they don’t silence the Amex if we don’t make the start we want.
