    Yep, I was there. 2-2 wasn't it and then we thrashed them at HR, Bodak getting the opening goal. I think it was the same day John Lennon died.

    I seen Godden win more headers in 60 min than Baka has since he’s been here,Dabo over sterling for me any day of the week & he’s got better hair.

    The whole sarcastic "Robins out" line after a good result is old as fuck now.

    Haven’t read thread as was at game and CBA now. Thought dabo was motm, certainly first half. Great run for the first goal. When was the last time a fullback took the ball the length of the pitch and set up a goal? Don’t get the hate at all.

    Lots of positives tonight, albeit L2 opposition.

    Poor crowd, but 1st round and in brum, so not unexpected. Bring on Watford. Been there three times and never seen us lose. Admittedly we weren’t 2 divisions below them, but still.

    Hate to say it, but am enjoying playing at St Andrews*. Didn’t hear any negative stuff tonight (although 4-1, so...).

    * would still prefer Cov obv, but hate the Ricoh even more these days.

    Considering how shit dabo is meant to be he was a clear man of the match for me. Shows how embarassing and clueless some of our fans are.

    Or that players have different performance levels. And I’ve not seen anyone say he’s shit. Just that he hasn’t had good games.

    Well that was an entertaining night out. We made 7 changes from Saturday and brought a 15 year old on as substitute, so we got to see some of our youngsters and reserve team players.

    Positives: we pinged it about quite a bit in the second half when you stood off us, we drew the second half 1-1, Jack Sparkes (young kid) looked great at right midfield but struggled when he was left back in the first half, our following of 375 was a half decent effort, it only cost me £13 for me and my lad to get in, that’s it.

    Thought your fans might have made a bit more noise and had a bit more bantz, but I think you’re all medically depressed after the Ricoh saga, which I can’t blame you for. Fair play to the 1,150 or so that travelled up for the game. I wish you all the best in the next round against Watford and in the league for the rest of the season.

    About three of your fans sang “we’ll never play you again” at the end. I very much hope we will. By the way, Argyle sang that to us a couple of years ago. Just saying.

    Must have been. Just seen people say he’s not been impressive first two games. Which he hasn’t.

    Pricks behind me constantly wanted us to just launch it from the back. We were 3 fucking nil up. Maybe, just maybe it was working.

    I said he was shit... more than happy to see him prove me wrong.

    Same with Shipley, Biamou and Bakayoko. They prove me wrong, I’ll be first in line to admit I was wrong

    Think we made 4 changes, have 1 out injured and 1 returned last 10 minutes from injury, its neither here or there.

    I would imagine we took our foot off a bit at half time, with Saturday in mind too probably... Thought you did OK second half... Was never going to be any atmosphere with the crowd tonight.. Fair play to your fans who came
    Enjoyed your song about the ricoh, just sat back had a swig of my coffee and laughed at how far back you've got to travel tonight... Just banter :)

    All the best

    Lol... as soon as I saw “Dabo MoM I instantly assumed it’d bite me on the ass...

    Seriously though I say players are shite, but genuinely love them to prove me wrong.

    Baka scores 20 and I’ll go to Ryton and apologise personally to him

    He won't because he won't start much after this week, I'd have said 12-15 in a full season starting

    Last time a fullback ran the length of the field to assist was Sterling last yr. Someone with a better memory than me can fill in the details

    15 goal Bakayoko doesn’t sound as good as 20 goals Bakayoko though

    Ok, if he’s as good as Sterling I’m more than happy.

    He was perfectly fine at Bolton, agree with Garry, some people need somebody to single out

    There have definitely been a few ‘not good enough’ comments — which is a judgement call. And people still saying he had poor games previously. Maybe I am guilty of just looking for the positives, but I didn’t and don’t get the negativity towards him. Looks a right-sided Mason to me. In fact I have more faith in our current back four than I have for a while.

    Was surprised how many you brought tonight, doubt we’d have taken many more if the fixture was reversed.

    We were quiet tonight, but for one thing there weren’t many there and another issue is that there is no area where the noisy fans gather, because none of us have been there as a home ground before.

    Hope you have a good season.

    Fantastic to get a good few goals, and all from strikers. Really helps the confidence. It just felt typical we'd score that early after not getting any at the weekend (that counted!) Hopefully a sign of things to come even if it was against L2 opposition.

    I was there and we won 5-0. LC quarter finals and it was a really big deal back in 1981. Midweek night game. Must have been a very big gate that night. We had a fantastic young team and a class manager (Sexton). The future looked very bright.

    We talking about Dabo here ?

    These comments are comical let’s think back to sterling’s early season form last year ? Dabo is way ahead of him & still settling no doubt he is a solid full back doesn’t flap from a challenge always vocal very happy with his signing.People thinking he’s shit ? More like they need someone to moan about.
