Anyone interesting in there from the lower reaches? Who do people want or dread?

Chippenham away would be interesting. Normally would want a London/Essex non-league side away but as I'm away that weekend, someone shit at home will do me. Save a trip to Billericay for round 2.

League One team away in the North would be the worst - Rochdale, Burton etc.

Chippenham have a tough task to get through, but Chippenham would be a nightmare draw for me. I'd just expect the inevitable!

yeah league 1/2 in the North would be worst.

I'd quite like met police at home I think. Winnable Smiley or York away - Mrs B is from York so could swing a trip up.

 There are some horrible draws in there.... I really, really don't want Salford, either home or away.  Bound to be on TV, they've a bigger budget, Adam Rooney and neanderthal fans.

 Metropolitan Police (h) would be fun.... are all their players coppers? If so that would be more coppers in Swindon than what you get on a normal Saturday.

 A nostalgic trip to Torquay would be my favourite.

I just assumed they were, but Wiki says no Sad

Originally made up of players from the Metropolitan Police Service, the rule requiring players to be employees of the service was removed when the Commissioner refused to sanction time off for playing. However, the club is still part-funded by a police staff lottery

Met Police players aren't all coppers, and haven't been for a while. A mate of mine used to play for them and they're the normal mix of coaches, PTs etc. Strange club, no fans.

Salford away would be ok.
Could go on a Mark E Smith pub crawl.  Smiley

Anyway, here is a reminder of the last 6 seasons in the cup.
We didn't really go down with all guns blazing in any of those games.
The Cheltenham one was the worst for me.

2012-13 - RD 1 Macclesfield (H) 0-2
2013-14 - RD 1 Macclesfield (A) 0-4
2014-15 - RD 1 Cheltenham (A) 0-5
2015-16 - RD 1 Rochdale (A) 1-3
2016-17 - RD 1 Eastleigh (H) 1-3 replay
2017-18 - RD 2 Stevenage (A) 2-5

Have pencilled in a long walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal for 2nd round day.
What's everyone got planned for our mid season break this year?

PB has probably got a shopping trip with the missus lined up.

Weston Sado Masochists would be fun. You could get to walk some or or all of the West Mendip Way.

Met police away  Smiley

That would be good for me. Their ground is not far from the Scilly Isles roundabout, which is almost as chaotic as the Magic Roundabout. It's between Esher and Hampton Court.

TBF in a cup you might as well lose 5-0 as 1-0.

Selfishly I'd take Alfreton Town (a). Interestingly I noticed the now new, Alfreton Town badge looks a little like their past player Aden Flint. A little digging and it is actually Alfred The Great. Another dig and I discover that the guy who designed it, I used to play football with, went to the same school and he had the hots for my sister. He now lives in San Francisco. Funny old world.
