Wick to Wembley?

It's of little consequence to us now but whilst we continue our increasingly impossible fight against relegation at Ewood Park its also the quarter finals of the F.A. Cup. A friend of mine has been following the road to Wembley since Chertsey Town played Wick in the extra preliminary round and writing about it in his blog Wick to Wembley?. Saturday will be the first time Andy's seen a game involving a Premier League side as he travels to Middlesbrough for their match against Cardiff City. He's been to 13 matches so far and the only game I attended (Camberly Town v Dartford - second qualifying round replay) was the only game to finish goalless. Dartford eventually went through on penalties but I think it says a lot about my luck watching football of late that it was probably the worst game of the run so far. I might seriously have to consider giving up going for the betterment of the game as a whole. Anyway Andy's been featured on the 'Boro website and they've done a nice little interview and a summary of his matches so far. Something to maybe take your mind off the doom and gloom of our own predicament.

Thanks for the plug Chopper! You are right, that Dartford game was the worst of the lot - by a country mile. But at least you stuck it out to the end. Good luck for Fulham at Blackburn, I really hope you guys avoid the drop. Looking forward to the Liverpool game on April 19th.
