The draw will be published tomorrow afternoon. As much as I hope that the CA manage to win the replay against Runcorn Linnets, I also hope that the draw is kind and avoids a potential meeting with City of Liverpool FC.
I, along with several other RCA regulars, watched their game at Ryhope CW yesterday and, although a lot of their fans seem quite decent, there are just as many who put the North Shields Ultras into the shadows. I didn't mind the noise they made, it's called supporting your team, but some of their behaviour is best described as unwanted and unnecessary. Someone had to pick up all the empty bottles and cans that two of their groups left behind and two empties even had to be removed from the pitch before the start of the second half. I have never felt so intimidated all the time I have been watching non-league football.
One of their banners claims that they are "A failed AA meeting masquerading as a football club" which was how supporters of Marine FC once described them and they have adopted it as their own slogan. Says it all, really.
