Really?! Laws of probability come to mind?


bit of an oxymoron, that.

a law, in this sense, is that XYZ WILL happen because ABC happens, probability mean is a measure of how LIKELY XYZ is to happen because ABC happens.
my one regret is...i have no regrets!

Welsh TV have selected Newport (for the third round running) vs Leeds. Which means Cardiff v Mansfield will not be on live TV

I think BBC Wales are missing out on a potential Cup upset here.......of course we should win easily, but it's the FA Cup and you just never know :)

Just purchased two train tickets from Nottingham direct to Cardiff. £61.60 return. Get into Cardiff at 11.30am and Nottingham at 9.00pm leaving 5.45.
Got to be better than that bloody drive down.

The ones I feel most sorry for are the billions of plastic Manure fans who'll not be shown live on t'Beeb in the 3rd Rnd since... :think: :think: . It's an outrage I tell you, just what do they pay their TV licences for :lol:

Just a warning for those on the train. If you were thinking of getting the train back from Ninian to Cardiff station be aware that they only have 2 poxy carriages and the trains only run every 30 minutes, so if you need to get back for your train home just be aware. They have stewards on the gates too and don't let you through onto the platform.

On the aforementioned train also, got £35 return with a railcard from Chesterfield changing at Derby. For those considering the train, try https://new.trainsplit.com - helped me save an extra £15 on the journey.

As far as I know ticket details are on their website in Welsh only. So unless you can speak Welsh or know a sheep that can translate for you I am afraid you will have to wait.

Wow wasn't expecting £10 per adult (season ticket holders)

£12 General sale.

Only 2,100 tickets have been allocated.

I reckon there could be a 'cupset' in this game. Cardiff are flying but seem to have eyes on the one thing. Promotion.

That'll be after STH's 1st

I assume you, they'll be plenty of tickets going round.

Imagine how we were when we were at home to Guiseley, Cardiff fans will be viewing us exactly the same, and probably more so

Well, as I said when the draw was made, Cardiff away is as appealing as an ingrowing toenail.

However, if we can't take at least 1,000 down there it would be shocking.
