So a free hit for Nige, will he rest players? Will he think of a big day out at a big club like Arsenal, Chelsea or Loooooun? Play like Tues and we've every chance haven't we?

I don't think Nigel sees it as a free hit. He told me after the game that he was very keen to win to give him a bigger budget for signing players.

He always takes cup competitions seriously, it's why he's been to 3 semi finals as a League One manager, he also loves ruffling the feathers of so called "bigger" managers. Very often, the cup run has been the catalyst for a good run in the league, still remember Burton fans saying we should rest players for the Shrewsbury first round League Cup away game as it's a "nothing" cup tie. 5 games later they're playing Man City in the semi final.

QPR, Fulham, West Ham, Villa, Forest, Charlton, Southampton, Burnley, Boro ALL thought they'd stroll it against a League One side, all of them sent packing.

He'll be drumming into the players all week about the importance of the game AND the opportunity it presents, win this, get a favourable draw and you never know.

I can't see any reason to change the team barring injuries or knocks, even if we signed someone who wasn't cup tied, I'd expect them to have to bide their time. If we play as well as we have been we'll win. If we get complacent we won't.

Massive, massive game.

I cannot believe in this day and age the FA player sign-up asks if you are male or female without the option for non-binary.

It's a very glitchy app, that seems to alternate between the app and the FA website depending on certain pages. It took me a while to get it working.

How does him winning this game give him a bigger budget under the new league two budget rules ???

It will be nice to see a manager take the cups seriously.

We're a club who haven't had much recent history in the cups and its long overdue.

Cheltenham on a very poor run of form at the moment. No wins in their last 5 league games. With the confidence in our team at the moment, this game is there for the taking.

on the flip side to this, if they tinker with the team, some players might be trying to force themselves into the manager's plans.

I think a tough game 1 - 0 either way

He might only have been given 300k for the January transfer window, our maximum spend left could be 500k.
John Radford might of agreed we can go up to the maximum if we win Sunday.
The less we need to spend this season the better.

It’s a wage cap not a transfer fee cap. I believe you can spend what you like on transfer fees, it’s the wages that are restricted.

it is completely independent of iFollow.

I set an account for me, and another up for my dad, on the website and had no problem. I installed the app on mobile devices separately. Try setting your account up on the website, rather than the app, would be my suggestion.

And you could also chuck a few grand in on a signing on fee if it’s spare. That could determine whether or not a player signs.

Not only that, but we do not know how far we are from the wage cap, I suspect there are plenty of clubs in League 2 spending nowhere near the wage cap and I am sure our wage budget has been reduced dramatically over the past two seasons. If he can move on a few higher earners and if there is money left within the cap he could well afford some quality in what will almost certainly be a buyers market.

Just a quick point, you only have to register if you do not already have an FA account, which all referee's have as well as other amateur officials. You can use your FAN to log in as normal - it will ask you what team you support, you can nominate two, but they must be Premier League!

It's worse than that Rob - the choice of teams is Women's Super League or Championship !!

Free hit??? Not for those watching, supporting, wanting the lifelong dream of a Stags Captain holding aloft the holy grail of domestic football to come true, agonizing over the game and wanting to go into work with their heads held high will there ever be such thing as a free hit. Graham used two cup games this season, the league cup and a ‘Stuffed Crust Cup’ game as friendlies or ‘free hits’ as you call them and look where that got us.

Many years ago I was told by Graham Taylor (Central Midlands League and Mansfield Sunday League referee) that there is no such thing as a friendly in football. For once the whistle is blown to start the game if you aren’t going to give it your all to win it then you should not be there.

It’s a cup game with one shot at glory, one shot at wanting to see Paul Merson pull our ball out of the giant plastic bowl, one shot of ringing colleagues and friends on Sunday afternoon to tell them that we will get their Premier League team of shithouses and beat them and one shot at having another month of something to look forward to.

Thanks but no thanks to the theory of free hits, it is for losers and if they don’t want to give their all on Sunday they need the jersey to be taken from their hands before they pull it on.

yes, this round is different. It is not on TV. Though you can connect your laptop to your TV via an HDMI lead.

it's live on the FA Player

You have to register for a free account. There is also an app you can download if watching on tablet or smartphone. Or you can just watch on the website.

It is only available in the UK. If you are outside the UK (or indeed in the UK), then you can listen to commentary on iFollow with me and Dean.

I've not tested it but I see no reason why the FA player would not work on a smart tv via the tv's internet browser.
