What's going on?
They seem to have added an extra round to the competition, but there are quite afey byes ans walkovers.
We seem to have already got past Gargoyle and Tavistock in the first two rounds without kicking a ball.
Quarter final before 31 Jan
Game kicks off this morning.

SOUTHEND STARTING XI: Oxley, White, Kiernan, Lennon, Ralph, Milligan, Yearwood, Mantom, Robinson, Humphrys, Goodship.
We will have half-time and full-time updates from the game across our social media channels and on the website, as well as...
This sounds like El Dorado for the spivs who run big football these days. An end to annoying fans getting in the way.
Already games are staged at ludicrous times taking no account of the trouble it causes to supporters trying to get there.
In view of the situation at City, it will be interesting to see whether Stevenage are 'refreshed and evolve' after changing their manager.
The Chairman hints that their gates do not provide the funds for a successful team. Is he blaming Westley for low attendances?

Now that it’s all over, it may be time to reflect on the Brazil trip.
Firstly for the benefit of some on here who don’t appear to think the tour actually happened, a few stats on participation:
Offical Tour Package: 110
Ticket Only Package: 48
Club officials “paying for...
Several people have mentioned recently that they are leaving the Trust.
There is plenty to be said about how the Trust has conducted itself, but I cannot understand how abandoning it now will strengthen the voice of supporters or protect us from a hostile takeover from the sort of 'businessmen'...
Newport are trying to switch this to Sunday 15th to avoid a clash with the Wales-Scotland rugby international. Announcement expected very soon.
Would be very welcome, as I have already bought my flight ticket to attend on the Saturday............
Worst season ever… for Exeweb?
Everybody is entitled to their views and Exeweb has always provided a bit of a social function for people who live behind their keyboards, but I don’t think I can remember a worse season for this forum.
IIRC it started with a slating of John O’Flynn before he’d...
No City league games live on TV this season. Not sure of the financial awards but maybe that's no bad thing given the mess that moving the Brentford fixture in January caused.
As usual, the TV people focus on the big time Charlies, regardless of the fact that several - Charlton, Sheff Wed -...
Although we can’t continue with last Saturday’s complacency, I’m confident that City won’t be involved in the relegation scrap, but after Saturday’s results things are certainly hotting up at the bottom of the table.
Gargoyle are battling well, but I can’t see them escaping, however most of the...
The Home Office just issued the hoolistats for season 2009-10.
We don't come out so good.
6 Banning Orders made between 11/11/09 and 19/11/10
25 arrests last season (all at way games interestingly) - 7 for violent disorder, 6 for pitch invasion, 11 for drunkenness and 1 for "property...
I see that Oxford and York could only muster 38,957 at Wembley yesterday.
Makes our 42,511 in May 2008 look pretty good (and the 30,000 we took ourselves the year before even better!)
I suppose a Luton final next year would draw a big crowd, but otherwise maybe our record will stand for some time?
