Fantastic! Is this our biggest single game since Tottenham away in ‘95?

Let’s hope tv don’t muck it up too much! Looking forward to it.

We played at Preston a year or two after the last Spurs game, which is a similar draw to this one. Millwall at home also arguably a bigger occasion? But it's a corker definitely.

I wonder why it wasn't just moved to the Wednesday?

Arranging games for possible replay dates makes it v hard for fans to plan. I assume if we draw at York, the Gateshead game on the 19th would also get moved?

Does anyone think this might get moved from Tuesday to Wednesday, now we’re playing on the Sunday before?

Quite so. By all accounts, changing the formation at Southport didn’t work and at Kiddie, it led to the team completely falling apart.

The second goal was scored just after we switched formation. So Hampson was playing left wing back at that point and looking to push forward. Hannigan was at left back...

I read the phrase ‘in what represents a good piece of business for Alty’ as meaning Alfreton have paid us a bit more than we paid BPA.

The FA website says that Hannigan is still suspended for the Leamington game and Richman will miss Kidderminster.

Didn't we pay a fee for Gary Talbot when we re-signed him from the Vics? Or would that have been pre-98?

If they win the appeal, which seems unlikely, it won't affect us. If they don't, we'll only be affected if Truro can't take up the spot freed up by Aldershot. In that event, Ashton United would be relieved and Oxford City would stay put.

But what happens in the NPL if they have to accommodate Gateshead? Either Ashton gets reprieved or a team gets moved across to the Southern League.

Or would Truro get reprieved, given they got more points than Ashton, and Oxford stay South?

I can see why we're doing the announcements this way but it might give the impression that we're still negotiating with squad members who have not yet been announced as retained, when I'm sure the majority of last year's squad is in fact already signed up.

I completely agree that a fluid, creative, energetic central midfielder is what we need. It's odd to say that because obviously Williams is that player in the current team and he's done well but I just feel that he's lacking in a way I find it hard to put my finger on.

It's no co-incidence that our two good runs of form this season have come when we've had a really good on-loan left winger (Dale and Ceesay). Finding the right player to offer a comparable threat out wide to Johnston is the other priority. I'd be looking to sign two wide players.

Otherwise, I'd stick with what we have.

Good Lord... I can understand people being upset about it in the moment but in the cold light of day, it's a red card. The fact he didn't make contact with the player is neither here nor there. You can't go into challenges like that anymore. We see red cards for that type of challenge all the time and not to acknowledge that that was a sending off offence suggests a one-eyedness that I thought we were above.

Great effort yesterday. We defended brilliantly and that has been our weak point this season. I absolutely think we should aim to win this league next season.

The away support yesterday was magnificent and also, as a man of a certain age, it felt like the baton of vocal support has been well and truly handed on to the next generation. I barely recognised anyone in that away end but it was packed with passionate and committed Alty fans. That has to be a good thing.

This time last year, for all the success, the club felt hollowed out. Yesterday, it felt like there was a new and vibrant core support.

Now for God's sake, let's get the management team and the bulk of the squad signed up.

Getting to Chorley (or anywhere near it) from the South East or the South Midlands by train on Sunday looks like being fun!

Euston shut all weekend, best suggestion on National rail so far is about a 4-5 hour journey each way via York/Sheffield and Manchester!

Any of the London Alty group found any better ways of doing it that I could look at? Otherwise it may have to be driving for me.

We’re driving too, in some combination or other. Trains look a nightmare.
