While its never good to be knocked out of a competition, I suspect many of us don't envy Warrington's long trip to Ebbsfleet tomorrow Cheesy

This "bollocks" is that its a particularly long journey and not the most welcoming ground from what I hear. Yes of course we'd like to have progressed in the Trophy but priority must be to get out of our current league and in hindsight a long trip south right now isn't what we need. That is all. Good luck to Warrington tomorrow.

Firstly there's nothing wrong with the welcome at Ebbsfleet. A club of similar stature to ours that are actually progressive, nothing wrong with that

This small club mentality is what got us into this mess in the first place, long journey wtf?Huh

Probably one of the best away long distance Trophy wins was in 2004 at Weymouth. Where our 2 nil win derailed the Steve Claridge living the dream team.

Promotion is the be all and end all this season.

Going out of the trophy and fa cup has been a factor in our lead at the top of the table.
Ebsfleet an awfully long and draining matchday for the players...

PP Can go and win the trophy next season...and 3rd round of the fa cup and promotion....minimum!!! Grin

Thinking you can pick and choose which competitions to focus on can be dangerous, you must focus on them all because at some point its the next game and a shift in focus can upset the rythmm, wether its along way to Ebbsfleet or not if we manage to reclaim our National lgr status the long trip will be the norm

I think the point is we would have had a very long trip to Ebbsfleet today, a ground weve all been to a number of times which holds absolutely no kind of special interest and in all probability gone down to a narrow defeat in front of a sub 1000 crowd. Id rather we were playing a league game and maintaining our momentum. Yes, wed all love a day out at Wembley but lets focus on getting back towards our proper level this season.

Looking negatively we could have had the confidence and momentum drained from us in a 4-0 battering ...hanegan sent off by a picky ref and harrison injured...
A 3-2 defeat in a cup game at higher opposition kick started a 2 year decline....
