Was thinking the same and with touch wood the final at wembley would help the club keep hold of a player or two.

Sam, I really hope the players don't think it's a stroll in the park to seal the win as you seem to think it is, with only one goal in it, anything can happen to change the game, bad ref decision, injury, man sent off add a little bad luck and we would be up against it.

Seen it happen too often with commentators on the TV that speak too soon, better to have a little bit of humility than think it's all over, before that final whistle. Hope you're right of course but going on your predictions for charity you don't exactly have a good record do you. Lol.

Interesting subs decision, timing around 65 minutes is good, I expected Gladwin to get his chance, if tactical, Yaser coming on, suggest we want to shut up shop, although with only El Gabas as our only available striker on the bench options are limited, but would not be surprised to see him introduced before the end.

If we are serious about progressing why are we starting Belford and Barthram. Are Fodders and NT injured ?

No, but there has to be a breeding ground for players who've shown they're good enough to step up, surely?

Yes, I would agree in principle with that, but would add, bringing them on for 15 minutes at the tail end of a game and building that up to playing a half and then introducing them at the start, rather than chucking them in at the deep end in a cup game where anything goes. That is if we are serious about progrestion as opposed to seeing how they fair and identifying there weak spots for improvement ahead of the January window, when possible sales of others may see them thrust into the lime light. I'm only comparing methods, not faulting the one applied this evening, where it seems both have done ok ish.

We should sell Fods for the best bid above £500K and pay off Palace.

Then put Belford in goal.

Would be ironic, especially if the Town also make the L1 Play-offs because that would make Cooper the most successful Town manager for some considerable time.

Not bad for a clueless manager scraping by on a pittance. :)

got to get past Peterborough first and whilst Stevenage weren't very good i didn't think we were much better.

Belford's shot stopping is very good, great presence but very hesitant in his distribution i thought which allowed their players to get back into position. I must say when Luongo and Mason went off i thought "oh dear' (how big were Gladwin's shorts by the way?!?) but well played lads, a well dug out result.
Away leg first please?

Wiz,

Agree in principle but also happy to see Belford have his chance and hope now that he plays in both area finals matches as he has seemly won it for us tonight. Nathan has been injured and with league, IMO, being more important Barthram deserves his chance.

This result tonight does offer a decent pay day which is not to be sneezed at. Belford in goal IMO but the rest will depend on who is here, hopefully Ajose as it seems to be his comp, will he be able to play though unless signed permanently.

No, but there has to be a breeding ground for players who've shown they're good enough to step up, surely?

Yes, I would agree in principle with that, but would add, bringing them on for 15 minutes at the tail end of a game and building that up to playing a half and then introducing them at the start, rather than chucking them in at the deep end in a cup game where anything goes. That is if we are serious about progrestion as opposed to seeing how they fair and identifying there weak spots for improvement ahead of the January window, when possible sales of others may see them thrust into the lime light. I'm only comparing methods, not faulting the one applied this evening, where it seems both have done ok ish.
Wiz,

Agree in principle but also happy to see Belford have his chance and hope now that he plays in both area finals matches as he has seemly won it for us tonight. Nathan has been injured and with league, IMO, being more important Barthram deserves his chance.

This result tonight does offer a decent pay day which is not to be sneezed at. Belford in goal IMO but the rest will depend on who is here, hopefully Ajose as it seems to be his comp, will he be able to play though unless signed permanently.

COYMR
Yes, Cooper knowing better than us both as he sees him in training and has a far better perspective. Having Fodders on the bench will do no harm and may even inspire him a bit.
I don't think Peterborough are going to be easy and truth be known we should have dispatched Stevenage tonight without going to penalties, or so we would all like to think. Cup football is amazing as we should know, and always beware the under dog, as they can bite where it hurts.
Having an element now of flexiblity is good to know, but it seems we are as ever, even from before the days of Danny Wilson, wasteful in front of goal. Seems its an age old tradition, with the exception of Simon Cox and of course Austin. We are due another, lets hope he comes along soon.

Town goal scoring legend required, any takers, Den, Jock, OTR, Oxon, dazza, clean yer boots up, and get joggin' , only jokin, LOL.

Strange match, we blew hot and cold. Ajose ran his socks off. Bartham looked good all night, stronger than Nathan has looked recently. Belford looked useful in goal though obviously under orders to pass or throw out, his kicking when he resorted to it was patchy but he looks like a good understudy to Wes and great saves in the shoot out. Mass had the poorest game I have seen him play in a Town shirt - he's usually one of my favourite players. Harley was out of sorts and so was Mason. When Kasim came on he looked slow and off the pace, jury out on Gladwin for me. The midfield went missing in the last 15 minutes, very strange match tactically.

We look very good at times and very poor at others; great inconsistency. I hate to say it but there doesn't seem to be a lot of fire and passion in the side. Perhaps it is the strict discipline of pass, pass, pass even if it is sideways or backwards. At least we're through but we will need to show much more nous to beat Posh.
