FG's number is 18


Out of curiosity, does anyone believe in lucky numbers and would they consider this one lucky or not.


If we are drawn at home to Bristol Rovers 18 will be a lucky number.
If we are drawn away to Fleetwood 18 will be unlucky



Well will 18 be a lucky number? It brought us a home tie against non league opposition, let's hope come 5.00pm today it proves to be.
The second round draw on Monday, the FGR v Billericay game is ball number 18

Hi
I didn't realise that as well as being #18 in the first round draw we were also the first team out for the 18th game drawn.

i am sure someone better informed than me will confirm or deny ,but am i right that the number 8 ,followed by the number 18 is a very lucky number in chinese culture, and 18 also resonates well in Judaism ?

Is 18 a lucky number for FGR? No 18 again for 2nd round.

Happy with that conclusion.

Still haven't bought a lottery ticket though.

I got 7 out of ten, the second one was difficult.

I got nine...if we draw Harrogate away any time soon it is probably best to let someone else take charge of directions!

9/10. Must confess I had never heard of Maldon and Tiptree.

10/10, but getting Boston in exactly the right place was a bit of a challenge.

A good draw tomorrow, and a win on the day, in the 2nd round proper and we pick up £54,000.

Kingstonian or Maldon + Tiptree , home or away would suit me , would attend any of them. ( or The Gas at home if they win replay ).

would it be fair comment that minimally you want a non league side .

even if you slip up on the proverbial banana skin, the match would almost certainly be televised ,and i think that brings in £75 k which is more than you get for winning.

ideally of course-you want both .

Chichester City away for me by choice

I think this is a full list of the non-league teams left in the draw:

Tier 5:
Notts County
AFC Fylde
Solihull Moors
Dover
one of Yeovil or Hartlepool (match postponed yesterday)

and potentially:
Bromley (subject to winning replay against the Gas)
Wrexham (subject to winning replay against Rochdale)
Harrogate (subject to beating Portsmouth tomorrow)
Eastleigh (subject to winning replay against Stourbridge)

Tier 6:
Altrincham
Maidstone
Boston

and potentially
Darlington (subject to winning replay against Walsall)

Tier 7:
Kingstonian

and potentially
Stourbridge (subject to winning replay against Eastleigh)

Tier 8:
Chichester
Maldon & Tiptree

I won't be in the country during the weekend of the second round matches, so won't get to see any of them. Would be quite happy to see Boston knocked off their perch, at least.

I read that Mr Cooper is similarly hoping for a winnable tie against no league opposition in the next round, but i did think it extremely negative of him to then speak of going to Manchester United and losing in the third round -unusually negative that ,but seems he would play a 'weakend' side against them and take the loss-thats poor imo.
semi finals mimimum for me-and fgr do seem to have a bit of a trend ,where Lincoln go, FGR tend to follow

Chichester or Maldon, though getting revenge over Kingstonian would taste sweet.

Most important is getting a winnable tie to give us passage into the magical January 3rd round.

Having said that FGR at their best would give all those remaining in the cup a tough match

Floodlights not woking properly at Harrogate for their replay with Portsmouth. It's amusing listening to Radio Solent who are covering the game ( and the 2nd round draw) live.

Hopefully the match takes place.
