Er. Hallam FC, in Sheffield would beg to differ. Oldest football ground in the World.

Wrexham, I believe, is the oldest international football ground in the world which is still in use as a football ground?

If they`ve got high points surely they will be going themselves :-)

Rough in Newport...so rough I think only 99% of whatever allocation we get should attend and I'll make sure the final tickets go to a good home

And the oldest for safe-standing stands?

I live in Ruabon which is 6 miles from the Wrexham ground and watch them on occasions. My wife’s a bit nervous on the floor space in our house being requested should they get through.

Really really really hoping this isn't Monday. Rather not Sunday either because I'm going up to Leeds that day although I can go up whenever. Of course on the Monday I'll actually be in Leeds. It might be possible for me to still go but it's a huge ballache if it's Newport. Wrexham less so.

I've let the FA know this as well as the TV broadcasters so they can factor this in when making their choice :thumbup:

The likelihood is that it won’t be a Saturday 3pm as one of the Welsh channels will be covering it live. I would be surprised if it is a Monday but obviously it can never ever be ruled out. Friday night would be just as bad as a Monday.

We only have electricity on weekends on the other side of Offa's Dyke. So Sunday or Saturday evening game most likely.

 

Most cup games shown on BBC Wales/Cymru tend to be Sunday in all seriousness.

Yeah I'm expecting it to move regardless given the nature of the tie. I'd take basically anything bar Monday night really purely from a selfish point of view. I may be able to do it but it'll be hard.

 

Obviously we need Saturday half 5. We have nowhere near enough of them away compared to the others we're regularly given, particularly early Saturday.

Seem to remember  going to Wrexham in 1982 for a league 2 game. Toilets were disgusting with urine flowing down the terraces.(All 10)

Woking v Watford at 2pm on BT sport so I imagine we'll either be 4pm or maybe a 12pm? Unless they throw in something strange like a 6pm like they have done in the past.
