    Shame. Was rather hoping Winchester City would get you in the next round. There are advantages in having to play earlier rounds. £33k so far. :thumbs:

    (sorry, genuinely sorry you lot havn't progressed. I just hope we don't get Eastbourne)

    Just re-read that earlier post. We're playing them on Boxing & New Years Day...

    That Boxing day match has snuck up me

    Very disappointed for our great fans who made it to Eastbourne today

    I didn't , so no right to cry into my beer - but despite the great fightback, I did

    Big thanks for those that kept the faith in atrocious weather conditions and (certainly from DHFCTV commentary) atrocious play in the first half

    The curse of the Cup continues

    But vital we move on and put this result behind us - even more vital to help build attendances, support the team home and away and campaign to get back to Champion Hill asap

    Son of Roy Really?

    The first half didn't go to plan. So at half time the Dulwich Shakespeare Company put on a performance of Hamlet that so inspired the ten players that took the field they won the second half 0-3. Alas ....
    Note a rare appearance by the G-Man. But which one is he?

    I was worried when i saw the team. No real defensive cover in front of a back 3 . Without Kargbo and no Beeney to come in the role seemed to be between Ferguson and Vose. Also taking into account the unfamiliar pitch against a decent team . ... well we know what happened. Great effort in last 20 minutes and so nearly a game that would never be forgotten. Good of the team to come and shake hands of fans at the end. Also thought Kingsly Ersun looked good when he came on and could form a lively partnership with Dipo

    Eastbourne Borough get Slough Town or Bristol Manor Farm at home in the 4th qualifying round: a winnable tie. Bugger.

    The draw doesn't work like that, we would have had a different number. But more relevant: Torquay United at home to Winchester City. We are due to be at Torquay on first round proper day, as we are away to Truro City. Someone would have to move their game if the Gulls get through and are drawn at home again, so don't book your train tickets yet...

    Unless we'd forced a replay, in which case the draw would have been Eastbourne Borough or Dulwich Hamlet v Slough Town or Bristol Manor Farm.

    Indeed, but we never.

    But as the numbers for the draw appear to be allocated alphabetically it's also likely we'd have had the same number as Eastbourne had we beaten them.

    Fiddly journey, rubbish weather, looked on paper to be a strong possibility of going to a replay, and we have to go there again in 12 weeks for a league match.

    I would have come but I was DJing till 4am and didn't get home till around 5.30am the night before and then was DJing again the next day so unless someone was going to give me a lift in a helicopter, time - unlike the Rolling Stones - was not on my side.

    I just expressed bafflement. I'm not that up myself to be asking people to explain themselves.

    Just feels like the death of the 'magic of the cup' has drifted down to our level from the Premier League.

    I'd say at least 50 regulars were missing, and I would have expected another 50 casuals to have come out for the cup.

    I reckon the turnout would have been twice the amount, if the 3rd qualifying round had been replaced with a micro brewery. Not a priority I can fully get my head round.

    Just means you've still got that day off saved for a glorious Trophy run.

    We had that two seasons ago. It's usually a long wait til the next one...

    Frankly I think it has. I recall a number of current League clubs playing at a lower level than ourselves, we now have an ex-League club in our own division and quite a lot of them one division above. So many League and non-league clubs have exchanged places in recent times the difference between them, and the notion of what constitutes a giankilling, seems to have become blurred somewhat.

    Then of course you have Premier League clubs insulting the competition by fielding reserve sides, even those for whom it's the biggest trophy they have a serious chance of winning. And if we got to the first round and pulled a moderately big League club away we'd be segregated in a corner of an all-seater stadium with a low turnout of home fans.

    I'd still like the club to have the publicity of knocking out a big League club, and of course the prize money would be especially welcome at the present time, but I don't have a great deal of enthusiasm for matches like the two we had this season.

    Agree with all of that but a run from our level and below can be brilliant fun early in the season and lift spirits hugely. A good run also tends to lead to a positive knock-on effect for league game attendances. And Christ knows we could do with that.
