Remember, Remember the 5th of November

and tonight is a night we are never, ever going to forget!

Originally, Guy Fawkes Night was all about gunpowder, treason and hoo haa:

but tonight we are off to Rochdale - and the scenes are going to be remarkably similar:

For the first time in our short life, FC United are in the
FA Cup. Proper. - and I am already so giddy I am making myself sick.

Here is a little taster from ESPN for those of you who, like me, just cannot wait.

Giddy giddy giddy giddy giddy giddy. Oh dear. I need some pharmaceuticals and a little lie down.

Get out your rattles and get out your rosettes and get on that train to Rochdale. This is going to be the best night ever!!!

Good Luck Lads!


  1. Hi Dishwasher Crab! Well, well, I hope you got over your giddiness and enjoyed the match! I simply must --- I say, I simply must---- get over to Manchester someday and take in a live game myself!! :-).

    Oh, and I will have to get me one of those red scarves as well!


  2. Hi Snacky! Nice to hear from you.

    I did indeed enjoy the match. 4,000 FC fans went to Rochdale hoping for nothing more than a defeat that wasn't too humiliating - bearing in mind Rochdale are 80 places above us in the leagues.

    And then, quite remarkably and quite outstandingly, we won! Woo hoo!!!

    Top Night.
