Against all the odds, after going a goal and a man down at half-time, Tranmere beat Wycombe 2-1 after extra time!

All that excitement of having four home games in a row, and Orient ended up losing three of them. Our interim manager got sent off as well after a row with the Forest Green coaching staff, who allegedly made comments that referred to the late Justin Edinburgh. Not good to hear...

Reading also lost to Brentford, ending our four game unbeaten run.

Were just above drop zone again after losing to Fleetwood. Southend and Bolton look  near certainly for relegation though. Were vying with MK Dons  and Wimbledon. Next match the FA Cup against Chichester (Dec 1st)  We beat the highest ranking team left in last round, now we play the lowest ranked !

I wouldn't bet against it. I've just looked at their fixture list, and their next 6 games are against Leicester, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester (Cup) and Arsenal, which makes the Norwich defeat pretty bad for them. So the board may well decide to try and get a new manager in place before the Merseyside derby.

I hear Pochettino's available...;)

Wow, that was some comeback from Reading - Puscas scored a 5 minute hat-trick to beat Wigan! We are now suddenly just 2 points behind Charlton who have tumbled down the table since their good opening to the season.

The biggest score of the day - Airbus UK 0-12 The New Saints

England have been drawn against Croatia and Czech Republic for the Euros - two tricky opponents I would suggest. Scotland will also join them if they get through the play-offs. Wales will play Italy, Switzerland and Turkey.

France, Germany and Portugal are all in the same group...:o

Chichester managed to keep Tranmere at bay for an hour, but in the end lost 5-1.

Let's see what tomorrow's draw will bring... surely Reading won't draw Man Utd again...

Reading may have a good chance of beating Utd.

Reading may have a good chance of beating Utd.
We won't get to find out as Man Utd have drawn Wolves, and will probably get knocked out. Instead, we will be hosting Blackpool. Tricky tie for us as they are in decent form at the moment.

Port Vale will be hoping they will do better than Rotherham when they travel to Man City. Chelsea get their customary home tie against Championship opposition. Fylde will be very happy to get Premier League opposition, and Boston have a good incentive now to go and beat Rochdale with Newcastle waiting for the winner.

FA Cup Third Round Draw
Leicester City v Wigan Athletic
QPR v Swansea City
Fulham v Aston Villa
Chelsea v Nottingham Forest
Wolves v Manchester United
Charlton Athletic v West Brom
Rochdale or Boston United v Newcastle United
Cardiff City v Forest Green Rovers or Carlisle United
Oxford United v Exeter City or Hartlepool United
Sheffield United v AFC Fylde
Southampton v Huddersfield Town
Liverpool v Everton
Bristol City v Shrewsbury Town
Bournemouth v Luton Town
Brighton v Sheffield Wednesday
Bristol Rovers or Plymouth Argyle v Coventry City or Ipswich Town
Eastleigh or Crewe Alexandra v Barnsley
Manchester City v Port Vale

Watford v Tranmere Rovers
Preston v Norwich City
Millwall v Newport County
Crystal Palace v Derby County
Solihull Moors or Rotherham United v Hull City

Tranmere have beaten Man Utd!

The U21 team that is...

So Tranmere go through to the next round of the EFL/Leasing/Paint Trophy or whatever it's called now. Orient lost to Bristol Rovers in a penalty shootout.

Everton are now in the relegation zone after losing the Merseyside derby. I expect Marco Silva will be relieved of his duties after this...
