Whilst watching Scunthorpe United game on Ifollow Tim Thraves said the closer we get to Wembley the more the crowd will grow in this competition, my question is do you think this is right, if Newport County ever make the final of this competition would it be our worst attendance at Wembely stadium to date?

The answer is surely the obvious one, yes. It is the least prestigious competition in which we are entered. There is no excitement about going there for the first time. There will be few, if any, who haven't been at least twice. Of course interest is growing, but very very slowly. I'm now 'interested' and would make a trip to Wembley should it happen.

An observation on this topic. I notice the final is on Sunday 5th April. This must mean a postponement of fixtures for teams scheduled to play on Sat 4th, with not many weeks to reschedule before the end of season.

Have to agree.

I flew over for the Tottenham game and the playoff final. To be truthful if we made the final I am not sure I'd even watch it on the box.

If the club make money from this competition then I am pleased. But as for the competition itself, I have no interest whatsoever.

One thing you are pretty well guaranteed is a nice flowing game.
Have enjoyed every game seen over last few years even the 4-5 collapse.
Certainly would go as would Mrs Nouble and a few mates.
Long way to go to get there yet but I do hope we get a decent crowd for Leicester and hopefully open the Hazel as well.

With a combined average home league attendance of 50,255. It seems few of those decided not to bother.

I don't know if he'll be at the game, but Glyn Thompson is their U23 goalkeeping coach.

Question for Bisley regulars.

Is row A at the back or front.
Cannot fathom the map to see what is front or back.

Make sure before I book.

Thanks
