Can 32 be a lucky number for AFCB and Burton Albion?

The third round FA cup ties had some sensational results yesterday. While local rivals Southampton squeezed through in a tight thriller against Burnley, it was the end of the road for big clubs like Aston Villa and Leeds Utd. Still there are plenty of big Premiership and Championship teams in the draw this afternoon, which should take place around 2pm.

While AFCB did not manage to get their game on against Burton Albion, the Cherries will still be favourites to progress in the tie which is now rescheduled for Tuesday 14th January 2014 with a 19.45pm kick off. The evening match should have a reasonable atmosphere, although it will be hard for so many Burton fans to make the trip down to Dean Court which is a pity, because a boisterous atmosphere always helps a game. There are enough warnings already around from yesterday to show you that Burton Albion would be well capable of an upset when we play, so whoever gets through I hope that winner gets a good tie in the next round. Both teams will be looking out for ball No 32.

Who do you fancy ball no 32 to draw?

  1. the obvious is a top six Premier team, home or away and hope we have it televised to bring in some much needed revenue. We can't always rely on Uncle Max, be nice for him to see monies coming in... UTCIAD
