For a match day thread this is pretty quiet, even for a midweek match.

If Portsmouth have sold 12000 tickets I wonder how many Grecians will be there. Just over 3 hours on the road from Exeter even less from London and relatively straight links to Portsmouth although with most motorways around London there are roadworks on the M3. FBH has stated he will be there and presumably Hants but I wonder how many more bearing in mind our home attendances in this competitoin. This is a semi final of a national competition and we need to forget the politics surrounding the competition. Win and it's another £50,000 in the bank (better than the Sky handout we are getting for playing the Scum)

Good grief no. This competition is being boycotted. I don't agree with B teams in the football league, and supporting this competition will encourage that.

It's does feel dodgy that the money for winning this game in a cup no one is interested in is five times more then we get for a Devon derby that could decide automatic promotion (and potentially the Champions).... though to be fair nothing surprises me involving the FA and their Sky paymasters

So is the game also on iFollow? The various manifestations of Sky Sports over here don't seem overly interested in the game...

Play the under 12’s and show what an actual joke this competition is to the world.

We as a club voted against it after all.
