FA Cup 3rd round draw Spurs Home

Recommended Posts

Boro are ball number 26 in tonight's 3rd round draw for this seasons FA Cup.

Will this be a distraction to the importance of the season?

Who are you hoping to get be it home or away from The Riverside?

Will we get dumped early doors?

Are we now afforded the title of "giant killers" should we get a lower league team?

Do you really care because we will never win it this season and that you just want it over and done with?

Can we go on a run and bring in much needed finances to the club?

For me let's get a PL team at home for a change

I'm crying out for a home draw DS because I will be over from the 3rd - 6th Jan for a function so would love to be able to pick up a Boro game while I'm there. If not a home draw at least somewhere reasonably local enough so I can go to the game. UTB

I think a decent Premier League team at home is probably the best thing to hope for. A bit of extra revenue that's a 'free hit'. I think we could do without the added pressure of having to beat a lower league opposition and potentially crashing out early as it will only make feelings/confidence worse.

I saw you'd quoted me and it took me about 10 milliseconds to figure out what you'd put as I went back over my own comment in my head. 😂

Yeah, it was a bit of an easy one that in all honesty.  It's like the sort of chance that Assombalonga and Fletcher would have put just 15 feet over the bar 🙂

I would like to see us spank Sunderland at the Riverside!

We'd probably still manage to lose!

 

 

(yes I know that doesn't make sense...but then this season hasn't made a lot of sense so far)

Given that league survival has to be our #1 priority, very much so

Who are you hoping to get be it home or away from The Riverside?

As others have said, a home tie against one of the big PL teams would be nice

Will we get dumped early doors?

Yes, if the above happens

Are we now afforded the title of "giant killers" should we get a lower league team?

Haha! Yes.

Do you really care because we will never win it this season and that you just want it over and done with?

A cup run, while always nice, is very much a secondary priority. More games really doesn't help with our already thin squad and lengthy injury list.

Can we go on a run and bring in much needed finances to the club?

I really don't see it unless we get drawn against lower league clubs.

As usual, I want Newcastle.

But I do think I'd sooner a hard draw this year as anything below the Premier League is going to be a banana skin that will just depress fans.

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
