He's better than John

We don't normally managed two F.A. Cup wins in two seasons, yesterday saw us complete two in the space of four days. Not only that we've seen two youngsters make their debuts this week, Poyet and Lennon, let's hope they are given regular opportunities. Further than that let's hope more of them will get their chance.

Even if things still aren't going great off the pitch ( the meet the board video, I've still not seen it as I won't pay for info about the club), it's refreshing to be able to comment positively about matters on it.

Everyone seems to have dug deep yesterday especially Alnwick who had another good game. Ben A is doing so well as he commands the area, is positive, communicates well and holds on to most things. He needs to improve hid distribution when kicking but I'll not worry too much about that.

Another making his debut was Ajdarevic who seems to have acquitted himself reasonably well. Cousins returned in the second half to shore things up.

All in all a real team effort and we appear to be on a cup run. Well I never !  

As I write the 5th round draw is minutes away and I'm hoping for Everton away and a chance to reacquaint myself with Doctor Duncans. Always a good day out to Goodison.

After that all eyes turn towards Tuesday night's crucial game at Donny. It remains to be seen if Yann will play or is indeed on his way to pastures new. If Evina isn't fit then Lennon or Fox should come into the side. 

I hope we hear news of new strikers coming in next week following the disappointing departure of Smith. I did see someone compare him to BWP in saying that he was probably ok at league one / two level but not quite good enough for the championship. Since he never set foot on the pitch for us in a league game we won't know, well, not until he gets the chance with another club......shame.  

Anyway let's look forward to, hopefully a decent cup draw, and then a good performance and result on Tuesday. 

Come On You Reds !
