There are some interesting ties in there, my focus obviously being on the West Ham/Southend game. For a few years these two teams have had friendlies before the season, especially as they are so close in terms of area. Now that these two will meet competetivley emotions will be running high in the south-east of essex come August 23rd! Anyone else got any opinions on these ties?

Just want kiddy to go through cos it's going a bit rough for them at the moment, half the squads gone, Jan Molby ain't got no contract and there in debt. Think there great cos they do so much work for our community it's literally scary. Go kiddy.

Rushden & Diamonds v Swindon

Oxford v Reading


Those two games could be the most intresting. Im hopeing that Rushden & Diamonds have a good season. But in the end we all know that the trophy is worthless....
