It was 1980 and the fans were fighting before, during and after the game !! we drew then got beat 4 - 1 in the replay at Brunton park, I think Peter Beardsley scored for them.

It's a pity (the fighting apart) that we wont see that fixture repeated again at BP, it would have to be moved to Brunton Park. :rolleyes:

Why? Leeds united played Histon ( I think it was) in the fa cup and few years ago at Histon. There ground is no better than BP and it was played no problem.

Half of a 2000 gate at BP, or half of a poossible 8,000 at Brunton Park.......a financial no brainer for the Red's :rolleyes:

Obviously, but I thought you were getting at the state of the ground. With the new stand (which I will believe when I see it) the attendance will be over 3000

first round of the FA cup is in november and I can't see it being built by then :rolleyes: So 2,000 it is then, until (and if) the new stand is built. Even at 3,000 I reckon they would still reverse the fixture........but hey we're talking about an unlikely scenario here, as much as I would like it to happen. I think Red's would take a good following to Carlisle and I know a few who would go through to support them, even though they wouldn't darken the doors of BP again.

To be honest if reds did make the 1st round an away draw to someone like Bradford or sheff united would make the club the most money.

A ground with a capacity would do reds fine. No point in having a massive ground for a game what may come round every 10-15 year

Also as said above Leeds played Histon at Histon a few years ago and there ground is not much bigger than reds
