The FA Cup matters to me. I'm especially interested in attending these games. I'm glad I couldn't go today. Drawing at home to a non-league club I haven't heard of (despite residing in Bromley for a year), who got more shots away, who got more on target, who won more corners, in front of only three thousand, is unacceptable to me. I might attend the replay.
That's on the manager for not bothering to look at how 5th tier teams play and preparing for it.
I can also tell you for sure that either we didn't have them watched, or if we did the person who did it needs replacing, or our manager ignored the report. Here's just 1 reason why, their No 19 was very slow turning and not quick over the first 5 yards, we made zero effort to exploit that. There were similar things all over the pitch. We are supposed to be a professional organisation, it's about time we started acting like it.
No movement at all from midfield to disrupt their shape, I'll bet they couldn't believe how easy that was. An hour of smashing high balls to Smith who had 2 huge blokes on his shoulder. Complete madness.
Nichols, total disgrace, again. All he did was foul and fall over.
1982 probably can't even be bothered to laugh at us any more.
Edit. I'm pretty sure they only had 10 players on the pitch when they scored as well. Complete farce. But we'll carry on as if nothing has happened. At any normal L1 club people, top to bottom, would have questions to answer after that farce.
I don't often agree with Bambi but we sure were pathetic and lucky to still be in the draw tomorrow. Little was our poorest performer but Victor not far behind. JCH tried his best but clearly not match fit.
Why do we struggle against non league sides at least under Trolls we managed cup runs.
