good fixture (providing we beat Woking) short train journey into Brum, meet up with usual suspects, and out to Villa park, a ground I have not been to

plus my son in law and his family support villa, so could be interesting

Oh,....Villa who are 5th in the champs with an average attendance of 30k not good enough for you?

Having witnessed yesterday's abject display, I will keep my powder dry for now, but if and when next Tuesday has come and past and if we are still in the cup I will then look forward to another day out in the Wellington

It's a game we're never winning and the crowd won't be anything like that.

Not what I'd call a good draw.
Aston Villa will think it will be a walkover even if it's Woking but especially if it's Posh.

I'll have to check the record books but the last time I think we played them when I was still in England was in 1962 in the League Cup.
They won 6-1. Derek Dougan scored a hat trick.

It's football, still plenty of hope for me, and a reasonable money spinner with fa add ons

I didn't realise we'd already won the replay...and were in the 3rd round.
The result of the replay is a foregone conclusion.
