Can remember Shrewsbury coming down to us first game of the season about 92 or 93.
Cs gas used in a mass brawl outside the Portland so its swings and roundabouts.

Poor draw in poor season with poor management and poor weather
sums up the season that draw I agree.

At Shrewsbury's old ground you had to pass a large wall on your way to the away end. I think every club that had ever played there had their name spray painted on it .Stags fans took it to another level by using a six inch brush and white gloss paint. It was the ugliest bit of graffiti I have ever seen and lasted for years . every time we went to Gay Meadow it used to make me chuckle and remember a few long lost supporters.

It was ‘93, a response after trouble at their ground a year earlier.
Trouble again in 2002. Fighting broke out near Shrewsbury train station before the match and, outside the ground after stags fans left early.
In 2006, an arranged meet resulted in a mass brawl inside Yates’s, Nottingham before Shrewsbury’s match at Notts.
Can’t remember any incidents between us since.

The previous season, away at Gay Meadow, a punch up was arranged for after the game under the bridge, however when the Stags turned up Shrewsbury legged it. Didn’t even get within 50ft.

The first game of the following season was to save face for them!

Is that because they saw Mr Spartacus coming?

Hopefully Saturday.

The one benefit of Shrewsbury is that it’s a decent day out

Not announced. But it's hard to see why it would be moved for TV

Can’t imagine the BBC would want to subject folk to our football under dempster. Folk will be asking for tv did tv licenses to be refunded.

Keep the magic, or what is left of it since the FA sold it’s soul for TV money, of the cup alive and just kick off at 3pm on Saturday. It’s not hard, it’s traditional though to some a 3 pm kick off on a Saturday doesn’t sell enough tubes of Pringles in Malaysia or wherever. Shame really.

It's hard to see why any round 2 tie would be though.
Does anyone remotely care about round 2 apart from the two clubs involved?
The FA Cup starts in January when the big boys meet the minnows.
Bromley v Bristol Rovers etc does not rock many boats these days as this event is a mere blip on the Richter scale but Bromley v Spurs is a different matter according to the press.

I would say 0% chance of live TV coverage, and 0.1% chance of the Sunday BBC programme coverage.

I enjoy the first two rounds, but never watch the competition from third round onwards. I have no interest in cash league reserve sides.
