3-0 away at Dorking in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

Into the 4th Qualifying Round, with a winnable home tie vs Bromley.

Be great to see three non-disputable Gloucestershire sides in the First Round proper - Glos vs Chelt would be a great tie.

Yea, cos we've got such a great record against non-league teams in the FA Cup, it'd be an ideal time to play them while we're in such disarray, wouldn't it...?

Anyway, here is the 4th Qualifying Round Draw:

http://www.thefa.com/competitions/thefacup/fixtures

For me personally Blyth away would be ideal, and every year I cross my fingers for Harrogate away so am doing the same this time too.

But the real gem would be if Dunston UTS of the ninth tier continue their unbelievable run and beat Gateshead in the local derby. A trip to their 2,500 stadium, where they are charging £6 for the Gateshead tie - their biggest game ever - is what FA Cup is all about. 9th tier in the 4th Qual!!

More locally to Cheltenham, what about a trip to Jerry Gill’s Bath?

I'd like Charlton away (only lower league ground I've not been too) or failing that any winnable tie so we can enjoy a cup run for once.

Like a non-league club, you mean...? Fortunately, I didn't go to Telford - but the memories of being totally ripped apart and outplayed in the first half by Sutton live long in the memory.

Tamworth?

After the disaster against Maidstone I'm rather hoping we'll actually have a proper look at whoever our opponents are this season instead of turning up and hoping for the best.

Yea, Tamworth. And you're also right that it was Maidstone who tore us apart at home.

Our record in the cup in recent years has been shocking, we are the victim of too many giant killings however that may work in our favour in terms of potential TV coverage I guess.

Seconded. If only for the Antigallican pub which is a historic east end boozer just a stroll from the away turnstiles. They used to put on a buffet for visiting fans!

The odds will be against us joining you in the first round proper. We will be the underdogs playing at home to a Conference Premier side and today have lost our goalkeeper. Not sure if the FA are going to let us play rush. And as he was a striker anyway then that wouldn't help unless they were shooting towards his nose.

We have a woeful record in the FA Cup over the years.

Bromley low down in league above. Home tie after a great away win at a big spending side. I think City have a great chance.

Personally I think, if the FA allow emergencies, that CTFC should loan GCFC a keeper for the match.

If it did happen it would be on the back of the FGR back story, not anything to do with the derby aspect - I don't think the outside world reckon there's football played in Gloucestershire, and too few in the County do

Well it would be good to get on TV again, the lack of coverage you get in league 2 in comparison to the National League is quite noticeable. In the National League we were live on TV 5 or 6 times a season, unlikely to be on at all this year.

Yup, definitely experienced the reverse during our dominant season in the Conference - never seen us on TV so much.

Sky used to show the new boys at least once in the first season but seem to have given up on that now and virtually never show lower league football only Championship stuff.

Sky showed Barnsley v. Luton yesterday and a good game it was too. Barnsley in particular knocked the ball around really well, and looked a good side. Actually only one division above us, but really in all honesty, they are light years ahead of us.

They're third in League 1 and are a Championship/L1 yo-yo team. Hardly surprising.

No dice for Gloucester, so no derby in R1. Torquay score another hatful to go through...Johnson to return to WR in R1?
