Some of us older fans remember the great cup exploits from the late 70's so why not this time!! Yes they're a superb team and arguably the best we've ever seen but anything is possible especially if they put a few younger inexperienced players out and there's probably not a single fan/pundit out there who will give us a chance of anything but a hammering so let's prove them wrong and beat them 5-4 on penalties. Now that would be Friday night entertainment for the nation!

the biggest step is to get a goal. reward that packed out county ground. Swindon 1 and Man City anything 5 or below would be acceptable.

they are probably the only team in the country where there isn't much hope. Iv said to friends that as crazy as it sounds we are too similar too city in our play and we aren't going to out Pep, Pep. A team like cheltenham with their aerial threats, size and set piece ability and you never know.

We can dream though and nothing wrong with that at all. Im sure we will see grealish play and isn't he best mates with mckirdy? should be fun

unfortunately we haven't got the players playing that will get physical and get in their faces to upset them.

I think we'll play out a 'nice' 4-0 loss or so where the commentators will applaud us for trying to play the right way, but the fans will go home knowing we got nowhere near a ' stuck in 1st gear' city

If we can get Pep to see that Garner promoting a passing style of play similar to City's then I don't care what the score is as long as they give us some decent loan signings for the rest of the season....

This is what I've been saying to people who ask about the game, probably partly to avoid getting ripped when the inevitable happens.

Ditto. We just need to make a brave fist of it and I'll be happy.

If we sit back they will hit us for double figures.
We can't defend against minnows, so just go for and go all out.

If we can score one and also concede less than Burton did, then that's fine by me.

Or win 2-1. That also works.

If we can score more than them, we might just win.

Itís a cup game and anything can happen. No pressure on us and Man City have more important things to worry about in the league and Europe so will send out a second XI who of course still qualify players but will they be as up for it as us? Unlikely as it is we will win I actually think the game will be a lot closer than most believe, certainly donít see a massive tonking, more like a comfortable 0-2 for City, be nice if we can score though. More importantly I hope we put on a show and that encourages the plastics to come on a more regular basis.

Can you name any players from this second 11 that you speak of? Considering they regularly stick 5 past Premier league sides anything under 10 is acceptable! But I'm hoping for a gutsy 1-2 or even a draw!

We're now top of their thread list and quite interesting to see variations of possible team selection and that 7% think we will win in a current poll!

I'm warning you!  Cheesy  Wink

Agree with the post though.

Would have been happier with this draw in the 5th round or beyond having made money from beating localish or higher division sides (who had help ensure capacity crowds) in the 3rd and 4th rounds.
