I admire everyone’s positive attitude, but that draw literally could not be worse for our prospects of getting to Wembley for the first time in 51 years. Bad draw for Bromley, too, but we’ve surely gone from favourites for the trophy to not even being favourites to get through the next round.

I’m sure the team will be less morose about it than me, and I know they’re capable of winning there. Just pissed off with what is a terrible, terrible draw!

Bees are joint favourites with Bromley to lift the FA Trophy, 11/4.

Multiple reasons to be positive
We beat them comfortably at their home in the league
We have won all our games on plastic this season
It isn’t another game against Wealdstone or Gateshead
It’s a very easy away journey

I'll get in early here.....
How many do you think we will take?
Is it worth running a Coach?
What's the food like?
Will we have use of a bar?
Name four players who have played for both clubs without using the IN? I can name at least 8.

Food quality is better than ours to be fair. Virtually every ground is better than ours.

Toilets are a shambles there but at least we're next to the pitch unlike Gateshead.
How many non league grounds have you been to to make you think "virtually every ground is better than ours"?
A fair few, and having ate at Bromley, there is good choice at a respectful price.

I think in terms of cost, waiting time, service, offerings and quality, we are abysmal at The Hive. We've popped up on Footy Scran social media channel a fair few times due to the shocking quality of food.

You’re talking about the food and drink offering, I think the original question was about the ground as a whole.
