    Not surprised one bit. Rather like Huddersfield, Swansea, Stoke and Bournemouth they’re a team that were in the same division as us not a million years ago, and a team we’ve beaten on their own patch too. They have no stars, don’t play particularly attractive football and are not a massive side. Plus by the time the game’s played we’ll have had a good number of games under our belts in close succession including a number of local away fixtures so couple that with Christmas expenditure, our indifferent form and the awful recent weather it doesn’t exactly give a lot to look forward to.

    Personally I’m infinitely more interested in the fixture the following week against Coventry. At least we’ll be up against a first team rather than a bunch of U21s from a team whose only priority is staying in the Premiership.

    I see where you're coming from Matt but where there's a will and all that.

    Well if it's so easy then we'll have no problem getting to the fourth round then, which we've spectacularly failed to do for donkeys years. If that isn't worth turning up for I don't know what is

    Did you even read what I wrote? I said nothing whatsoever about the difficulty in winning the tie so what on earth are you on about: well if it’s so easy? I never said anything of the sort so don’t go making stuff up to make a point that doesn’t exist. I didn’t even say it wasn’t worth turning up for either, I was just giving reasons why people might not think the tie particularly attractive.

    You're disappointed that you can now purchase 4 tickets - or that there are still tickets to purchase?
    If the latter..............it's just an elongated selling process to ensure tickets go to the people who deserve them most - those who have a history with Exeter City.

    "Doesn't exactly give a lot to look forward to". But there is.

    "A bunch of U21s". Assume most people would think that was beatable

    So you're going then? What was the point of your post.

    If you've been emailed, then the club has your info. "on the system". You are effectively a 'community' person, known to the club.
