If by a miracle and we make it to first round. With no bury there must be a bye in that round for some one
I doubt there'll be a bye - even the FA aren't that dumb. They'll surely have rejigged it by that stage, probably in the next qualifying round.
You canít rejig the number of teams in the competition once it started. They would have to find a extra team from somewhere and you can only do that by not knocking one out when they are scheduled to go ie a bye or two teams enter one round later than planned

On present evidence Hemmings is a far better bet in the no. 10 shirt than Hancock. The latter is lightweight under any sort of challenge and on Saturday was finding the touchline or the opposition more often than his own teammates with passes. Hemmings is robust enough to compete and has a pleasing tendency to pass to members of his own side on a reasonably regular basis - which is more than could be said of quite a number of our players on Saturday. When things are working well for him Hancock can be an excellent player but at the moment it just doesn't seem to be clicking often enough for him; the same could, regrettably, be said of Johnston.
On the question of Densmore - he needs to be given the opportunity to get match sharp. How & where that can happen I don't know - he doesn't seem to feature in the management's thinking other than as a bench-warmer at the moment - but to be a realistic option he needs game time somehow, somewhere.

Bizarre comments about Hancock who, with Hemmings were a class above last home game. He is also returning to match fitness. For me there is 5 players who should always start and they are Hannigan, Hancock, Hemmings, Hulme and Ceesay.

I suspect the poor recruitment during the Summer has caused the kind of statements being made here, Mullarkey played ok against Leamington and should have kept his place, nobody should have their name on the team sheet including Hulme. The other teams are stronger than us this season, so we need strengthening, not putting the same players out. I am sure the manager knows this hence the signing of Hemmings, and Ceesay, but none should be guaranteed a place.

I'll throw something into the mix:

Why did we wait until June before making the important decision that Jake Moult needed an operation? It resulted in us losing our Captain for the first month of the season and disrupted the team hugely. If the decision had been taken right at the end of the season and he'd had the procedure sooner, I believe it would have hurt us a lot less than it actually has done.

It won't be the only reason but it can't have helped.

Now weíve had three days to process Saturdays sh*t show. We must remember Saturday is the FA Cup, itís historically our competition. Itís an away game up the road so letís be having you. How many of the 1300 at Chorley are coming along on Saturday. Dust yourselves now and letís get there in large numbers, theyíll need us behind them from the off.

Count me out. I'm not risking getting as angry again as I was on Saturday, and I can't see us getting anything. Yes, we drew there early doors, but their star striker wasn't playing - and advertised his well-being with a hat trick at Telford last week.

I voted for it when given the chance and I still like it now. Fair enough if some people don't like it, it's a simple matter of taste at the end of the day. I have to say, though, if we were in the top 5 and playing better I don't think we would be having long threads about people disliking a kit. I don't give a sh*t what they wear as long as the players start performing better on the pitch.
If there had been a "none of the above" option, I'd definitely have voted for it. The purple was the best away kit we've ever had in my opinion.

I have to say that I found it difficult to pick out JJ on the far side of the pitch on Saturday, and also to distinguish his movement accurately. There's definitely an argument against this kit, but, as others have said, the problems appear to run far deeper than that.

It's difficult to pinpoint precisely where we've gone wrong: a bit of bad luck early doors affecting confidence; teams wizing up to our style of play; a thinner squad in the absence of influential team players like Harrison and Poole; poor summer recruitment; injuries and suspensions; even the crappy kit (our away form is coincidentally abysmal). Take your pick, but something is wrong. Of course, win at Chester and it could kick start everything. We need to get as many people down to Chester as possible on Saturday to ensure this happens.
