Its that time of year agiain for the FA Cup 1st round draw on Monday evening at 7pm on BBC2

We have not progressed past the 3rd round since 2011 and have been knocked out at the first round 6 times and round two 3 times in the last 9 years!

A good cup run can be a good money spinner for the club and get some momentum going too. Something we just don't seem capabale of lately it seems.

Before todays ties are played there are only a couple interesting possible local ties as currently only Chippenham and Oxford City from non league are left, then add to that Bristol Rovers, Oxford U, Cheltnumb and FGR.

There are a few more interesting longer distance ties vs lesser opposition but for me the local derby in round 1 has always been an interesting prospect. Yes this year we have ex winners Bolton, Sunderland, Ipswich as the bigger ties.

This year because of Burys liquidation there is a bye up for grabs, with the last team drawn getting a bye to the 2nd round and an automatic £36k prize money.

I would quite like to be drawn away at Weymouth, Torquay, Poole or Yeovil as they are easy to get to for me (if they progress)!

Potters Bar v Barnet live right now here...

Well Barnet only drew with Potters Bar 1-1 equalizing in the 101st minute!

I was very impressed with Potters Bar as they showed much more skill and ability than Barnet who were poor, several of the Bar players look good enough to play in the league, the difference between the sides was Barnet took their chance and Bar had very few chances, Barnet scored an OG in the end.

Very impressed with the Potters Bar keeper, the 25YO Jamaican Raven Constable who was a good shot stopper and commanded his area well and looks every bit as good as any keeper we have faced this season in L2.

Very disappointing to hear. At least finally a team has left the pitch due to this kind of behaviour. Shame on a select few Yeovil fans. Terrible behaviour. I would say they should face expulsion from the league but they did that of their own accord, last season.

It is a shame we are at this place in sport, at any time but more so today. Someone had to make a stand.

Not just racist insults, spitting and bottle throwing too at a couple of players.

Quote
An FA Cup tie was abandoned after Haringey Borough's manager took his team off the field amid accusations of racism, bottle throwing and spitting.

Home keeper Valery Douglas Pajetat was reportedly spat at and hit by an object thrown from the Yeovil Town end.

Defender Coby Rowe was then "racially abused", according to Haringey boss Tom Loizou, who said "there was no way I could let him continue".

"If we get punished and thrown out, I don't care," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

The match, played at non-league side Haringey's home ground Coles Park Stadium, was in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup, with the winner set to progress to the first-round proper.

"It's very distressing," said Loizou. "The abuse a few of my players got was disgusting.

"Yeovil's players and manager were different class. Their team tried to calm their supporters down, they tried their best and they supported us - they said 'if you're walking off we're walking off with you'.

"I took the decision to take my team off and I don't want Yeovil Town to get punished for it. If we get thrown out of the FA Cup and they go through, there is no hard feelings there.

"I have not done it for any other reason than looking into my players' faces and seeing how distraught they were. They are not used to this."

The incident comes four days after England's Euro 2020 qualifier in Bulgaria was halted twice as fans were warned about racist behaviour, including Nazi salutes and monkey chanting.

In a statement issued on Saturday evening, the Football Association said it was "deeply concerned about the allegation of discrimination".

It added: "There is no room for discrimination in our game and we are working with the match officials and the relevant authorities, as a matter of urgency, to fully establish the facts and take the appropriate steps."
What actually happened at Haringey v Yeovil?

Visitors Yeovil were leading 1-0 through a Rhys Murphy penalty when the game was halted in the 64th minute.

There was a long delay for that spot-kick to be taken, with Haringey goalkeeper Pajetat reportedly initially struck by an object from the stands.

Shortly after Murphy scored, play was suspended as the hosts left the field.

About 35 minutes later, it was confirmed the match had officially been abandoned, with BT Sport reporting that Pajetat was both racially abused and spat at by visiting fans.
Report

Haringey said on Twitter: "Sorry for the late update but wanted to make sure we gave correct information. Game has been abandoned following racial abuse. Horrendous afternoon.

"It must be said that 99.9% of [Yeovil] fans are also disgusted by what's happened as much as we are. One club, one community."
'We stand with Haringey' - Yeovil boss Sarll

Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll told BBC Somerset: "On behalf of Yeovil Town, we fully support Haringey and we stand together.

"The players and I decided we'd support [Haringey] and make a stand together, and be stronger with togetherness.

"I want Haringey and our football club to know we don't condone anything of that nature, if there was anything of that nature.

"We, footballers and managers, get a lot of abuse but nobody should feel discriminated against when they come to play football.

"I'd do anything to win but there are certain levels and lines I'd never go over. There was no way I'd support racial discrimination.

"I feel we've done the right thing. I'm not going to feel anything other than proud for the way the players conducted themselves.

"Now the authorities will take care of what they need to take care of."

The campaign group Kick It Out said in a statement on social media: "These reports of alleged racist abuse aimed at goalkeeper Valery Douglas Pajetat yet again means players are continuing to receive discriminatory abuse while doing their job.

"The Haringey manager and players took swift and decisive action as a result of the abuse, similar to that taken by the England team out in Bulgaria.

"Kick It Out has informed The FA and will support the club in identifying the offender(s) to ensure appropriate action is taken and strong punishment issued.

"We would also like to offer our full support to Douglas and all at Haringey Borough FC."

So, the English football establishment, authorities and media, were all happy to pontificate about those nasty Bulgarians the other day, and plenty of pundits saying they should be thrown out of the Euros. I agree. So I look forward to the strident editorials from Henry Winter et al demanding Yeovil be kicked out of the FA Cup. Not holding my breath.

Probably right. To Yeovil's credit (the team), they apparently said to the Haringey manager that if you're walking off, we're walking off with you. So both of them will get fined, but Haringey will probably be demoted as well.
