    I've made a 5 foot long key from cardboard and tinfoil to wave behind the goal so I can get picked out in the crowd by the television cameras.

    I’m genuinely gutted there’s NOT a half & half scarf.
    They are genuinely for cup finals & non league in the cup cup runs.
    By not producing one we have simply lost money for nothing.
    Are you really saying we wouldn’t have sold a hundred or two hundred of them?

    How do you know it’s not going to happen? Or are you just assuming it won’t?

    Think there was mention of there being some kind of commemorative scarf. Just not a half & half.

    Being Dulwich, a 0.5 & 0.5 scarf.

    Haven’t assumed anything just asking a question to whether it had been mentioned elsewhere and I’d missed it.

    Taking the initiative the Dulwich scarf will be a proportional representation scarf with 15% Carlisle United; circa 80% Dulwich and the rest blank for the hoppers; Hamlet curious and “others” to fill in as they please...

    When Aldershot played Manchester United a few years ago they produced a half and half scarf or some similar item featuring the United badge. Someone I knew at the club told me they were legally obliged to pay a % of any resulting revenue to United. (This may have been waived, it's not unknown for United to do that for lesser teams apparently however; I don't know whether or not it was.) Produce a commemorative scarf without a protected logo on belonging to a third party and you can keep all the revenue.

    Any decision not to do a half and half scarf may not have come down simply to some people disliking them. There may be a valid commercial reason.

    Bitter as I am, I’m also delighted that Dulwich fans attending cannot he labelled as glory hunters, the proportion being a regular attendance.

    I can see the justification for a team from our division playing a team of the sheer calibre of Man Utd to produce a half and half scarf, but a team technically only a couple of divisions above, not so much.

    I think our classic pink n blue scarves are nice enough, and many people already have one.

    There will be a special scarf for the occasion, some 199 of them (one sadly didn't make it out of the factory in one piece) and we have managed to keep the cost, like the club did with match tickets, at it's regular price of £10.00!!!!!!!

    We have been lucky to get these with the short lead time, the supplier already had the pink thread in stock.

    A general one that says something like ‘Up for the Cup’ or similar, not entirely commemorative to this game.

    I should bloody well hope the price is kept at a tenner!

    I think there is going to be a special scarf of some sort. Oops, just saw Scolly’s post above!

    I understand there will be a wreath laying on the pitch before the game.

    Hi folks another Carlisle fan here, looking forward to watching the 'not so mighty Blues' on the telly Friday night.
    I was going to come down, as my daughter lives in Wembley, but unfortunately the mother-in-law is going down for the weekend to stay with her, so the thought of National humiliation and having to put up with her leaves me feeling cold.........terribly cold!!!
    Bit of a novelty seeing your fans que for tickets to watch a game against us!!! the normal reaction from opposition fans is "we've got bloody Carlisle at home, think I'll give it a miss".
    Just hope our fans get behind the team for the 90 minutes and there's not too much of the anti board/manager stuff. Pressley is a funny one, a really, really nice guy, but as a manager???? He took over a team around this time last year that was 2nd/3rd in the table and we're currently......err a long way down, so it's probably not too surprising our fans want change.....again!!!
    Anyway hope you enjoy the game (but not too much), you'll find most of our fans are a pretty decent bunch, but like most teams we have had our fair share of idiots over the years, hopefully there will be none there on Friday night.
    All the best (after Friday of course).

    Having given it more thought, disappointed with the pundits lined up for the BBC coverage. Both Micah Richards and Karen Carney are Brummies and from what i gather from Wikipedia neither have any connection with either club, or playing in the lower and non leagues. Whilst im sure they will be able to contribute some worthwhile analysis, Id have hoped for some more imaginative pundits, wonder what Jimmy Glass is upto these days?

    I guess they have a panel of contracted pundits from which to choose and there's limited scope to bring in different people with direct club connections for specific matches. They also now use female pundits for some men's matches at all levels who by definition won't have played in those competitions. I do agree they could have used one pundit with direct insight of playing in this sort of match at this stage of the FA Cup, whether for a League club expected to win or the underdog hoping to spring a surprise. I don't recall Micah Richards playing below Premier League level.

    Micah Richards might not have played non-league, but he did feature in the video for T2's absolute banger "Heartbroken" alongside Anton Ferdinand.

    Just needs a protective brolly and some keys jangling from the top. Job done.

    Jimmy works for Bournemouth in some sort of player liaison role. He was up here towards the end of last season for the twenty years anniversary, a night was put on which was good fun and a commemorative beer made for it. Sky also did a feature on it, see link.

    He was running/driving Taxis down in Dorset (Wimborne Minster) a few years ago after retirement, he’s a sound bloke.

    He actually only played 3 games for us....and whisper it quietly .............. "but he wasn't that great"!!!............ but...... on that day, well it was like winning the FA Cup, The World Cup, The Champions League and everything else all rolled into one, absolutely bloody amazing. I don't ever want to go through that again, because if he hadn't scored then we would probably/possibly be swimming around non league, but bloody hell it doesn't half bring back memories, and that's what football is all about isn't it??
