Correct.

Quote
The competition now features 16 regional groups of four teams (with eight groups in each of Northern and Southern sections), with the top two from each group progressing to the knockout stages, the first two rounds of which remain regionalised before an open draw from the quarter-finals onwards.

Not wishing to start another thread but this is very interesting.

Its about Ian Evatt the manager of Barrow, dubbed Barrowcelona for the style of play.

A lot of this sounds very familiar to Swindon fans, a lot.



Even down to the "get it forward" man.

He is also attributing a lot of it to what he learnt under Holloway at Blackpool, so even more evidence that Saturday will not be an easy game against the Lincolnshire Barcelona.

Watching these highlights it doesn't look that Barcelona, although nice to see Brad Barry once of this Parish.

I suppose compared to what they have been watching then it is, a bit like Barnsley fans a few years back singing "its just like watching Brazil" yes, Brazil nuts maybe.
