Is the reason we're only playing two league games in November because of these bloody FA Cup games? We started the season early. The World Cup isn't starting till end of November and doesn't concern us apart from Burns. Why are we only playing 2 league games in Nov. Could have squeezed in 1 or 2 more league games. We've even had the Cambridge game cancelled for the Queen's death scheduled before November. Weird scheduling.

Yep…….. could’ve had the League won by Hogmanay! 👍👌

Amazing the connections the Cup throws up at times.
I see Tommy Miller is assistant manager at Buxton and he has posted a tweet accordingly.

That worked out well, he was down the other week too wasn't he, when Burleys bar was re-opened?

Sure he will get a warm welcome, and rightly too.

We certainly didn’t have to worry about missing penalties when Tommy Milker was around. ⚽️

Tommy was a brilliant servant for ITFC! I think he's one of the most consistent players we've had. Also, I don't recall him ever having any issues on or off the pitch. A hard working player who showed up for every match.

Had to glean information as no idea what league they're in. Around Derby way knew that much but not much else with it. Probably some divisions below Chesterfield, (they are) among the most vague / unrecognized of club names of that county.

Last reached Third Round back in 1952 when George VI was UK monarch. All right you got a new King but 70 years on, kind of safe to say they wont be replicating that achievement from back then. We'll win, had a small scare yesterday with the Bracknell game but there's no chance they can or will overcome us when the time arises.
