5th Round is all midweek, first week of March. Any potential visits to either Tottenham or Cardiff would require ‘Show Your Papers’ to get in. Personally I’d quite like West Ham away or Boreham Wood at home.

Apart from Boreham Wood, all teams are from the top two tiers, chances are that Posh will be the lowest ranked team (in terms of league position) in the next round.

Could be a bit tricky, but I fancy our chances.

The cup has been good to the club this season, and will add £££ to the bottom line come the end of the financial year. I just hope we are not completely embarrassed on national tv tomorrow, and that we can have some pride in a performance for almost the first time this year

I'm pretty sure that we all agree with you.

I have been thinking about our team to play Manchester City, to give us the best chance of not losing….






……………..Jones or Mabutt





……………………..Szmodics






……Burrows..Brown…Fuchs…Ward






Coulson…Knight or Kent..Edwards..Thompson or Knight

We have nothing to lose tonight and I am sure our own youngsters will be given preference over on-loan players, so I will be disappointed, if Edwards, Burrows and Jones aren't in the starting line up.

Where have performances like that been all season. Grant, Kent, Fuchs, Ward, Coulson and Jones all did brilliantly.. they were a class apart, Mahre, Foden, Gundogan, were excellent.

Well played Posh, you did us proud, just some sharpness missing against one of the best teams in the World. Mc.Cann got the plan on the field dead right. Very enjoyable.
