Could be that all the six outfield subs from last night start on Saturday. Maybe even leave one or two of those who have played most (Archie?) at home?

With a potentially lucrative 3rd round tie I would have thought both sides will want to be up for this.
Is it lucrative though? Even if fans are allowed there would be little income from having 2k or 4k and the prize money is substantially reduced. The TV money is the only reason to want a decent tie.
I would like a Cup run but could totally understand wholesale changes given the run of games we are having at the moment.

I am thinking very much of the 64 ball type tie and the TV money here.

Wasn’t as bothered about the FA Cup this year with fans not being able to attend, but now that it seems that we will be able to attend (even if in small numbers) I am just as excited about the FA Cup and the prospect of a big tie as usual! Love the FA Cup me.

We all like the FA Cup it's just that we've been let down for so long that we don't want to show our hands for fear of disapointment!

Go on City play a young side and show the world how good our academy is!

Went to Gillingham once long old trek no wonder it's a 1.00 pm kick off

Steve Evans gobbie git and like Tisdale has had some success but has also had more failures

MId Table division one team below the scum, nothing to fear, we are unbeaten away from home so far this season, 2-2 draw (goals from Jay and Williams) goes to extra time for an Ajose winner and into the hat for the third round, take that Mr Evans!
