    Clearly nobody’s interested in this game then... all about buying Cup tickets?

    I'm bringing my 10 year old and her friend tomorrow for their first ever match. I haven't been to Champion Hill for several years - is it likely to be a sell out tomorrow? Should we get there early?


    Would be surprised if it sold out. But getting down early is never a bad idea.

    Certainly if you want a seat I’d suggest get in the queue by two...

    Forecast is for rain and strong winds, so don’t bring umbrellas!

    I doubt there will actually be a queue of any length at 2. Personally I always aim to arrive before 2.30 to beat the queue and pick a spot on the terrace or at the front.

    However the seats are unreserved and on a first come first served basis, so if you want to bag three together you probably do need to get there for around 2pm.

    The other factor tomorrow is the Carlisle tickets going on general sale at noon, so the ground may well fill up a lot earlier than usual even if the attendance isn't especially large.

    Hard to find a seat from around 2.30.

    Do you think I should get childs ticket online to be safe, or will there be enough at the gate?

    Still won’t reserve you a seat.

    Thank you all for the advice. Here’s hoping I’ll be able to brainwash two kids into being football fans

    Dipo returns on the bench for Monlouis. Otherwise it's the same team/squad as Chelmsford, and unchanged XI for the fourth match running.

    The midfield is absolutely non-existent. How the fuck Ijaha is on the bench is beyond me.

    7 points from a possible 30 in the last 10 league games, firmly bottom of the form league. Thoughts B.I.G?

    My girlfriend turned up 10 minutes from time to pick me and her kid up and was denied access. She wasn’t allowed in even though we went to the gate. The club needs to take a bit of a look at itself it just really does.

    I didn’t go game. You made me see that it was better to stay at home.

    It's a bloody shambles. We've massively increased the budget, got three training sessions a week, and nutrition plans for players, and I can't honestly say there is a discernible difference between the side that finished last season and this one. It's a massive waste of money and of the hard work put in behind the scenes.

    The players we've got have strong CVs but the vast majority of them look bang average now. We didn't have a recognised centre half on the pitch for the entirity of the game today. (There's no way Quade is more of a natural centre back than a midfielder). The midfield was largely anonymous: the usual controlled passing, but absolutely inept at giving the backline any protection. Who we thought was going to do any tackling out of Vose, Chapman and Hunte is a mystery to me. Bath looked a far savvier side, which is exactly what the signings of the streetwise Ijaha, Mills, Smith and Orlu were meant to make us. (Ijaha we put on the bench, Smith we've moved to centre half (despite him being a central midfielder), and Orlu is so injury-prone he makes Magnus Okuonghae look like an ever-present.)

    The FA Cup run is a brilliant achievement and I'm not taking anything away from that, but I feel it's helped to paper over several cracks. Things have improved compared to the embarrassing performances against Dorking and Maidstone a couple of months ago, but we still look painfully soft and average, despite having a pretty good budget. Some of the signings and selections are just baffling too.

    I honestly think we're in Wenger territory now, but we can't do anything to change it. We're flushing a lot of money down the can.

    Agree with the previous comments. You can't take anything away from Bath though, they are a very good team and they move the ball very quickly by playing one touch. We always take 2 or 3 touches before we pass and it's slow and predictable. Thought McCoy had a good game.

    Back home and a bit pissed but hard to argue against any of the above.

    Weather was atrocious in the first half but Bath ground out a goal when their attacker got the better of Vose. Still not sure he is up to the task at this level but who knows what's happening behind the scenes - unusual that the club captain cant make it into the team when fit.

    Hunte didn't have his best game and Chapman didn't really trouble the keeper despite at least 3 on target shots from distance.

    Ijaha when he came on looked lively but nothing compared to Dipo who looked bang up for it. On that evidence he is more than worth a place on the bench on Friday, and possibly a starting place.

    Completely agree re: Dipo. He looked razor sharp. Interesting that he's been away at another club for the past two months, but looked like our brightest player on his immediate return. Speaks volumes.

    Their number 4 was one of the best players I’ve seen at Champion Hill in a long time

    They broke well and looked a lot more incisive in the final third. The failings from last season of lack of tempo and playing the ball around at the back have resurfaced although we looked better after Ijaha and Dipo came on. Last league win was before the August Bank Holiday as far as I can tell!

    Weather totally atrocious - who mentioned the need for cover (Not umbrellas)

    understand if players being careful not to get injured before big day on Friday
    But except for a period in the first half never looked in the game - Bath turned our defence inside out
    Undoubtedly Bath deserved to win

    huge crowd 2,800 plus but with it comes problems a few newbies swearing at Bath goalkeeper etc and swearing and sexist calls in general - (booed and disapproved of by fans around) not the Dulwich Hamlet way

    A young Bath fans tearing off LGBT stickers (seemed a little high) called out by other Bath fans - good to see

    Rain was going sideways under Toilets Opposite. Got wet no matter where you were. However in this life it’s not weather conditions that matter but the courage one brings to them.
