    Unfortunately the fact that it’s been shifted to Wednesday means I now can’t make it. Hey ho.

    Tooting are at home to Cray Valley on Tuesday in the other semi-final, hence the change of date. So you can thank Meadow for that!

    My track record at semi-finals is appalling so I might give it a miss - you can thank me all on Thursday once we have made the final!

    What's the admission prices for this? I'll run a feature on Buzz.

    I am assuming it will be full prices....long gone are the days when we can afford to reduce prices, in the current climate. I don't think anyone would begrudge that...and it is a semi final after all.

    Why? We lost to them last season. That is all.

    If the picture that has appeared on Twitter today of ducks in standing water on the pitch is actually from today, there won’t be a game!!

    Yes, I just saw that posted on Facebook. Forecast is for rain to clear by early afternoon. Any pitch inspection scheduled?

    That semi-final was less than 24 hoursbefore the final league match, which we needed to win for 3rd place, and we fielded few if any first choice starters. The other match was a pre-season, so the result was of little relevance. This year's final (if we're in it ) will be the last game of the season so I'd like to think we'd field thestrongest available team.

    I still feel uneasy about Cray bloody Valley. The memories of that awful semi final will take a long time to fade!

    Yes, it was awful. We fucked up big time. But personally I still have nightmares and flashbacks to the semi final the previous season...which was a million times worse!

    I left the Cray Valley semi right after the final whistle and the look of thunder on Gavin Rose's face as he drove out of the car park at the same time said it all.

    As far as I'm concerned we've lost once to Cray Valley in a game we threw away. As Pink Panther correctly implies a pre-season loss counts for jack shit!

    Thanks, suspected It might have been due to our new meadow inspired riverside location being swamped by a deluge.

    As the England cricket team used to say. Always take a snorkel and flippers on a good night out.
