The road to Wembley

January 10th, 2011 · Posted by Skuds in Life · 3 Comments · Life

Crawley Town’s FA Cup road might not go all the way to Wembley, but tonight they discovered that it will at least go as far as Torquay.   It would have been good to get a ‘glamour’ tie against Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal or someone like that (but please not West Ham!)  but on the other hand, against a League Two side only 14 places above us, there has to be a chance of getting into the last sixteen and meeting the big boys there.

I discovered something myself too.  After listening to the commentary of the whole game on Radio 5 live, I rushed downstairs to see if I could catch the goals on the news.  At that point I discovered that our TV can pick up ESPN and I could have watched the game instead of listening to it.  Bah.

I would have preferred that to sitting through the 5 live commentators disparaging Crawley and taking the piss out of the terraces, the telephone mast, the stadium clock, and anything else they could think of.  Mind you, they did mention that they saw a gritter going past on the A23.  I don’t think the 5 live crew realised what an event that was.

Anyway, well done to the team and fingers crossed that they don’t meet ther Hammers until the final.

    Listening to 5 live really made me appreciate watching the games on TV.

    Why don’t you want Crawley to face the hammers? Because you have a conflict of interests, or because you think Crawley will win?

    A bit of both really.

    How about because it would be better for them to meet in the last 16 (or even later) to make it a win-win game for you?
