Magpie watch...

About a year ago I posted on Maidenhead United's exploits in the FA Cup after they'd reached the first round proper for the first time in 35 years or so. Sadly they didn't get any further, but this year, still under the leadership of Johnson "Drax" Hippolyte, they've got back to the same stage and have a decent chance of further progression.

Tomorrow they are away at Horsham, one of the few teams in the competition from lower in the grand league pyramid. Not an easy game, to be sure, but a winnable one (at least they ought to be able to get a draw). Let's hope they show that, er, world famous Maidonian spirit and do the business.

Wonderful concept, Maidenhead.

Right, that's it, no more predictions about Maidenhead United in the cup. Two years in a row I've put the kibosh on them.

(Still, though, how can you lose 4-1 to Horsham???)

Heh - 4-1. It's quite special. Meanwhile the mighty Owls put 5 past the local team. I'll enjoy work on Monday :o)
