    You said that Cook was "clearly leaner" last season, that's the part I'm debating and suggesting it's nonsense.

    If you want a debate on the whole squads fitness and the sports science as a whole, start another thread.

    Wouldn't mind Everton at home, they were absolutely awful in that first half - better in the second, but barely scraped by in reality.

    Trust the judgement of a Wrexham fan who we have just knocked out of the EFL Cup, go on I believe them as well, now for a tasty home draw.

    You won't have long to wait to see what a fit Oliver offers, let's hope its far better than it was last season.

    That's more like the celabration we have come to see from our players, Walkers goal on Saturday was a little subdued.

    I said he was clearly leaner at the start of last season, which he was.

    Reasonably big tie, possibly still winnable?

    Good crowd, winnable.
    Make tickets a tenner and get as many in as possible.
    Give them Midland Road.
    They took 3000 to Bolton last night so no issues selling 4000 at Valley Parade.

    We have a chance but mainly a good sized crowd which will bring some money in.

    On looking at the draw I realised round 3 is the last 32!

    One of Port Vale or Sutton in the last 16. Good for them!

    Don't worry, when he scores the winner on Saturday he'll have immediately lost that imaginary extra stone.

    Good tie. Firstly, at home. This year we look better at home. Big team, decent chance of a good away following, but theyve started badly in league and can be got at.

    For me it’s lack of service that’s held him back.

    He had good chances at Stockport (but lack of fitness didn’t cause him to miss them) but have we really created much else for him?

    He’s still our best player and once he gets his first the rest will soon follow. He has assisted a few already too. It’s not all been bad.
