    Our F A Cup match at Hemel Hempstead Town will be our 140th game in the competition.

    The odd thing is that we will have played 70 at home and 70 away, weird or what?

    Not really Les, that would be the single most likely outcome based on a 50/50 chance of being home or away every game

    Very good Big Rich. Hope you have not spent all day working that out
    And you have cleaned The Club Car. As we need it for the friendly on Saturday.

    140 games includes replays, not just the original draw, so it is somewhat odd:cool:.1-0 to me!

    Ah yes, but replays - by definition - are always the reverse of the original fixture and so this helps tend towards the 50/50 figure.

    I had a lot of time to think about this whilst the club car was being cleaned.

    1-1?

    So we have drawn more away ties than home ties. Nonetheless in the long run everything about the system - random home and away drawing of teams, replays at the original away team’s ground - tends towards the balance being 50/50!! I remain unsurprised!

    But this includes qualifying. When it comes to the competition proper. We’ve played 66.6% of the games at Home!

    It is. It took them ages, but it gave me time to consider Les’s statistical quandary. I gave it an extra buff up with some Autoglym back at Beveree.

    Where are we going on Saturday by the way? Needham Market? I better fill up another Jerry can with 2 star.
