Got them all but there's an error - they haven't included the first and second rounds in 1994/95

Ten minutes is nowhere near long enough for me.

I got 125.

Unbelievably the last one I got should have been the easiest - played on the day I was born

It is only from 1950 Tony, not 1930-are you sure it was your birthdate?

84%. It seems a bit odd to include a game that we haven't actually played yet.

126 for me, missed a few modern ones I should have got, I guess unless your a Claret a few of those will be tough.

Some memories both good and bad on that list, as I've only followed us for the last 35 years or so, a lot more bad than good, hopefully we can change that this year, it's about time we enjoyed a decent cup run.

Ah! that's why Chester wasn't accepted as a correct answer, I only remember that one as it was televised. And Inchy scored a great goal that day. :)

Chester was accepted as a correct answer for the 1988/89 season when they beat us on the Turf. I was trying to put in Chesterfield initially but it stopped at Chester so I then had to put in Chesterfield again. This hideous memory of mine with my logical mind means I can roll off all our FA Cup opponents since I started watching us in 1960 and then I didn't have too many left to get.

And did your parents do the decent thing and take you on to the match? Though perhaps you were born after full time.

My dad played hell apparently because I was delaying my arrival and he was worried about missing the cup tie. I duly arrived at a decent hour, just before noon, which enabled him to get on the Turf in time. I doubt he'd have forgiven me had he missed kick off. :D
