Hoping for a shallacking at some non-league outpost, expecting to draw Gillingham away.
Only way we're getting to round 2 is that bye.

Away at the highest rank side. :lac:

A repeat of the last FA Cup games with them would be great!

A terrible draw full stop, that. Seems a lot of same division ties.

Don't think it'll have to be a good tie to get on TV in this round.

Don't know what Southend's finances are like, but we played Bury this time last season
Lucky someone just bunged around £10M our way a couple of weeks ago then!

I'll attempt to get down there for a 'surprise' even though right now I wouldn't take us to beat Dover's youth team.

Wrong way round I'd imagine. If Orient were away then it'd be a sure fire thing.

Our draw is shit.
I think it's an absolute banker for TV with Maldon & Tiptree being lowest rank side and Leyton Orient having the tragedy of Justin Edinburgh's death earlier this year. Telly will be all over it.

Old Ron will be happy. Few interviews on talksport, hiring Sol, getting a game on tv. The tie falls on the week after he said there will be a stadium update given to the fans. He also said on talksport that he expects us to be in the stadium Aug 21 and Pigs will fly over the stadium to open it.

So this kicks off this weekend.

Not sure whether we'll change things around a little but I doubt we'll make too many changes. We have Rotherham in the Checkatrade on Tuesday so we can change things around then.

Sunday lunch time KOs are a bit crap but still looking forward to Wrexham away. Can't believe its 10+ years since we've played them. Used to be a regular fixture.

If we play to our potential we should win comfortably. However, we've got a knack of making life hard this season so won't take a win as a given.

Dover on Sunday lunchtime, wouldn't say I'm looking forward to going but I'll be there all the same.
If they score first they win.

Numerous injuries, Brentford don't want Marcus Forss cup tied and a load of our promising yoof have already played in the competition for non-league clubs so they're cup tied. Good luck to Donny in further rounds.

Bromley at home.

We're pretty good at being BBC's big upset in round 1 after losing to Chorley, Bath City & Barnet at home, it will be nice to keep up the tradition.

Think it was Chesham not Chorley -- But get your drift
