Sutton: Team and thoughts.

February 20, 2017

Exciting times ahead, or will this be  ….  I can’t even bring myself to write it

Beating Sutton brings no glory only the opportunity to go further in the FAC. If I had the choice I would prefer to play a PL team at home but such is Lady Luck.


Will AW rotate the team or will he keep the scoundrels who let him down in Munich, giving them the chance of redemption. I guess he will rotate where he can.

Plastic pitch, so no Danny. I expect us to start with a mix of youth and experience

My Team:


Debuchy/Jenks    Holding    Gabriel      Monreal

Maitland Niles     Elneny     Iwobi

Theo      Giroud     Jeff

Pretty exciting team, don’t you think?

And what of Sutton. In the days of Yore I had two season tickets, one for AFC and the other for Barnet. So, I have seen Sutton and been to Sutton Utd ground. It is/was a shitpit. When I went there would be perhaps 2000 fans but the palace will be packed tonight. Millions watching on TV; will the Sutton players freeze or rise to the occasion? Even if they do, we should win. We should win with our U-19 team but Burnley thought that at home to Lincoln. It is the Magic of the Cup.

Sutton play in the Vanarama National League. What the hell is that. Couldn’t they find a better named sponsor? What next … The Poundland Southern League?

A Cup run is exciting and our main hope of Glory this season. A win is a must.

Let it be So
