And following the links to Away tickets for their next home match against Harrogate, it's £22 Adults, £14 concessions for that

DAMN >:( Was really hoping we would get a home draw as a reward for everyone's brilliant efforts over the weekend.

Yes it's disappointing to be away, but maybe it'll be a hat trick of wins against National League opponents. They did beat Barrow on Saturday though, but I think Barrow rested a number of players in pursuit of a greater prize.

The ground is a bit like a Lego stadium but it suits their needs. The away end is a relatively large seated stand behind a goal. However for the game on Saturday, I think they only opened the main stand down the side (Legends stand). It holds about 2,700 so given that they got fewer than a thousand for Barrow, I imagine the same would apply for us.

They charged £15 on Saturday and kids for a quid. I would guess they'll apply a reduced pricing structure for our match.

This trip may mean staying over for Wembley.

"Legends" stand? It's all relative I suppose.
I used to go and watch them a bit in the early 90s, the old Underhill ground was a cracker, big slope, pub outside, not too far from the tube, all the necessary ingredients.
I suspect they've come a long way since the Barry Fry and Fat Stan days, for good and bad. Very much looking forward to it.

We're "massively financed" apparently. I'm sure this will come as a huge relief to Karen and Keith who can now stop dipping into their own pockets.

I remember going to Underhill; yes, it had much more appeal than the somewhat anodyne Hive. I am sure that the new stadium offers them more commercially, but in the long run, I am not sure it's done much for the support. The attendances were poor in League 2 and only Dover, Ebbsfleet and Boreham Wood are averaging lower crowds this season.

Well we're certainly doing it the hard way! Surely were we to win this we must set some kind of record. Can there be a team anywhere in any cup competition won 3 consecutive away games at teams 3 or more divisions above them. Must be nigh on impossible.
Another plus point for me though, not been to Barnet. ;D
