So how far is Ipswich? I've seen the 2 1/2 hours thing, but people i spoke to said about an hour and a half.

Also, Ipswich is a decent draw, why should the players fear them? Sammo has to drum it into them that we win and we're in the quarter finals

It depends where you start from.

Could be worse, could be better

But i'll be going ether way, how many times does a club like us get even a chance to get into the quater final? If someone had said to us you've got Reading then Liverpool, you'd expect us to be out by now.

Let's go there, expect nothing, like we did at liverpool, play to enjoy...and if we go out we go out.....we've done ourselvs proud already

How long is a piece of string?

But from County ground on a bus should be just under 2 1/2 hrs, in a Car should do it just under 2hrs. unless you hit Cambridge at rush hour in which case add at least another 1/2hr to that time.

It's over 100miles and the A14 can be a b*tch of a road at any time of the day

takes me about an hour and 15 mins to get from Wellingborough to Bury, it's about 40 mins from Bury so around 2 and a quater to 2 and a half hours from Northampton.

Actually, when you look at the full draw for this next round, and realise that TV usually chooses 2 games - one for Tuesday, one for Wednesday - our game at Ipswich looks a good bet for the TV audience. That would make our "take" of money well above what we got out of the Liverpool game.

Desperate for this to be a tv game. There's not going to be a way I can get to Ipswich. Unfortunately it's just too far for me and I won't be able to get the time off work to stay over in Northants. Plus it means loads of money for the club.

Newcastle v Arsenal is most likely to be shown on TV. Knowing how Sky loves Man Utd, and even though it's just a bog standard Prem match, I wouldn't be suprised to see Man Utd v Wolves as the other game.

Just to compare both teams fixtures prior to the 4th Round Match;

Cobblers

Chesterfield (H)
Macclesfield (A)
Cheltenham (A)
Hereford (H)
Oxford (A)

Ipswich

Reading (A)
Leeds (H)
Coventry (H)
Watford (A)
Nottingham Forest (A)

I firmly believe that if we go into the game on the back of a decent run, confidence will be sky high and we would go into the Ipswich game with so much belief.

In contrast, Ipswich have a very tough run in before the match, with the possible exception of Coventry at home. A few defeats there and they could slip into mid-table and be out of form. Confidence would be low, and all of a sudden the thought of playing gian-killers Northampton Town might not be so pleasant.

It could have been a better draw, but at least we didn't get Brentford away which seemed on the cards.

Still the only Cobblers team I've seen at Portman Road is the Youth Team..... so another full tick.

It is win-able and we deserve to get one over on Keano after the Sunderland floodlight robbery!

We'll have nothing to lose when we go there. The pressure's all on them. They'll look right mugs if we beat them. We've done our bit already. We're the toast of the country at the moment. I just wish I would be in the country when we play them. First time abroad in 7 years.

My main problem with this is Keane. Any other manager and they might be a bit blasé about us but he won't be after the Sunderland thing.

Oh - and stick it on the Tuesday please.
