chichester have already got 500 registerd for tickets for the game .thats superb when you consider there last away game had only 84 in the whole ground . ive not had the best record at FA cup games recent times my last 3 have been posh at home we all know what Happend there . oxford city . and spurs . lucky for me with it being on a sunday i have a huge Carvery on and with over 100 attending i wont be there again . its annoying this season i have only been to 2 games and looks like its gonna stay that way .just sooooooo busy . but hoping with me not there for the 2rd game they can do a pro job and no messing around . this is there cup Final and they are gonna be up for this can see it being a tough game an early goal and there keeper sent off inside 5 mins would be superb lol

I would start with a full strength team in this game. We are playing well at the moment and finally starting to get a settled side, with players returning from injury and relationships developing in the team, and there is a danger of a repeat of the disjointed performance against Salford (not to mention, Oxford City and Southport last season) if we make too many changes. It would be good if we could put the game to bed inside sixty minutes, and then rest players if necessary.

We have a free week either side of this game, and can use the Mickey Mouse match against Man United to experiment and give game time to players returning from injury.

I don't think we need five at the back at home to Chichester, and I would start with a line up something like this:

Davies
Caprice Nelson Monthe CBJ
Morris Potter Perkins / Jennings / Danns CBT
RHM Ferrier

I agree with RLC, full strength side, but keeping out any players who are not felt to be 100% fit. We don't need any draining replays for this game and ought to be strong enough to see the tie out early on.

I agree with RLC we need to play our strongest possible side and get the game won at the first time of asking

I have done a bit more research on the opposition, and they are at the same level of the Isthmian League as South Park, who we beat comfortably with a below-strength National League side a couple of years ago.

It would have to be a calamitous performance for us to lose the game (or fail to win), but I would still play a full strength team.

yes we need to go at them . we could do with a full on performance . with over 1000 away fans expected to travel . and i for 1 hope they can do that would be amazing for a small club . we need to respect them and play like we have in the last two or 3 games . give them noting

It would be good if we could get a decent crowd for this, perhaps close to our league average. In reality, the gate will probably be around 4,000, which won't look great on the telly.

The admission prices are very cheap. Dads and mums £10, grandparents £5, kids £1. I just hope a few parents are tempted to bring their kids along to see a game which should be played in a pleasant atmosphere without any animosity.

I would think we are probably looking at a crowd around the 4000 mark with around 600 or so away fans

I would hope for a few more. FA Cup, a chance to reach round 3 and new opposition. Why would any of our regulars (4,500?) stay away?

It is more like 6,000 regulars these days surely ? I would still imagine the gate will be around 4,000.

Yeah, TV always keeps some away. Should still be a decent atmosphere though.

Chichester actually had to win six matches even to reach the First Round.

They started in the extra-preliminary round back in August, and it is almost unheard of for a team that starts that early in the Cup to reach the competition proper. An incredible achievement, whatever happens on Sunday.
