  • An opportunity for the U23s and any of the 'walking wounded' nearing recovery to get some first team experience and or minutes towards match fitness.

    I would wrap our surviving key players in cotton wool for this one.
  • Adult tickets £15! Good luck with shifting those to watch the U23s and 1st team  squad members looking for minutes.
  • Definitely. I know we always seem to rest players and not take the cup seriously but we don't have much choice at the moment. Only problem is I expect we'll get absolutely tonked which won't do the kids' confidence much good. 
  • The outcome of this game is irrelevant to our season. We cannot afford any more injuries or any suspensions. Simple as that. 
  • WBA will put reserves out as well as they will not risk injuries to players with such a healthy lead at the top.

    Sadly the FA Cup is not what it used to be, the magic of 3rd Round Day has gone.

    I am a lot older than you Paulie and trust me it has gone. We could be playing WBA 6 months later in the league and the stand arrangements, the ticket prices and reserves being played would be the same.

    If we had drawn the league leaders at home when I was a kid in the 3rd round of the FA Cup all four sides of the ground would have been open and it would have been 1st team v 1st team on the day.

    I remember going up to West Brom in the fa cup and the puddle scored for them 

    you’re right it meant sooooo much more back in the day

    Mike there wouldn't be that many more fans there if we had a full strength team out

    What, after or before the trip?

    I think that's part of his point, when fans have little interest it's hard to argue the magic is still there!

    Agree with @paulie8290. If we had one of the top teams at home then all the stands would of been open.
    Just unfortunate we haven't. 
    Never mind though, even with the majority of the u23's playing, West Brom won't put a strong team so it will still be winnable.
    The only thing both teams don't want is for it to go to a replay.
  • Terrible timing for us. If we had a full squad of fit players, then squad rotation could even have been a positive. Instead we have a bare bones team, with knackered players needing a rest. We're ALREADY playing the kids and rookies.

    Those ‘kids and rookies’ are starting to look pretty good now they are getting some game time under their belts so it’s another opportunity for them to add to that. It’s also a game for any players returning from injury to get some match time in and a game for our bench warming goalkeeper to get some match time in.

  • Probably miss this one out as I am on 12 hr nights Saturday and 12 hour nights Sunday.....I did say having gone to the Donny last year and Forest Green this and all the other cup games in recent years, if they cant be arsed then why should I.
  • Think I’ll swerve this one 
  • Every Cup game I've been to recently has been a farce in terms of the team.we have put out. If the club don't care it's hard for the fans to be bothered.

    Our performance in the League Cup against Forest Green was beyond hopeless.

    But the kids and rookies themselves will need a rest by that stage, we've 3 matches before the FA Cup match

  • I don’t agree with clubs’ approach to the FA Cup generally, but in fairness to Charlton there is a minimum adult admission price of £15 written into the rules.

    A tenner would have been better but it is a price that needs to be agreed by both clubs.

    I imagine we´ll be getting around 7k for this.
