Turning a long walk into a pub crawl, like it!
For local journeys like these it’s not really cheaper buying advance train tickets just rock up on the day.
Could be a nightmare re tickets though getting them all sold and posted out in that short time but it’s been done before.
Yeah I was thinking tickets could be an issue but like I say Shrewsbury and Stoke will probably already let us know the allocation/price before the replay, then once they've played next Tuesday, on Wednesday it's sell sell sell!
Oh yeah definitely I wouldn’t be surprised to see Wolves publish points breakdowns etc for either alternative and like you say straight on sale day after the replay.
It’ll be 1500 Shrewsbury or 4500 Stoke.
I'd probably prefer Shrewsbury tbf, Stoke's just not a very nice place.
What a day out that was....the double decker from the centre was superb....tyres rubbing, wolves fans rammed on and singing ......great great day
Love it to be Shrewsbury, but Stoke takes me back to me old stomping grounds.
I do not remember coming home
Nah Stoke for me no chance I’ll get a ticket for Shrewsbury. Saying that I’d rather ya just get through so Shrewsbury as I can see Stoke being a bit of a banana skin.
A bus from the town centre mate, it was a hoot last time
Both banana skins tbf wed be favourites against both and weve not done well in games this year were expected to win.
Surprised if they let you into Stoke...you bad lad
Roof splitting doenstairs.
Clutch struggling to pull us through the town.
Great times mate
Would love to go again
Shrewsbury for me - easier chance to qualify for the next round
Stoke will be trying to impress their new manager too!
This is correct - max 15% subject to safety concerns and a capacity of around 10,000 so 1500 approx
Hope its Shrewsbury as it gives wolves the chance to wear their dapper white away kit
Good draw for us. Although away at either will be tricky. Shrewsbury Town in the cup reminds me of the QF at Molineux all those years ago. Me and Muggy Moreton (my old rocker mate) went to Molineux during a school lunchtime a few days before, to get tickets. Yes I know, can you believe it. We just walked up to the old ticket office at the back of the old North Bank (or was it the old souvenir shop there) and bought 4 tickets (two others were coming to the match). Those were the days, no calling up or online sales! No loyalty points! I remember watching the game from the old North Bank moving down the terrace as it filled up, to get a better view each time "grown-ups" stood in front of us! The sight of the old South Bank from the North Bank was awesome. It had segregation by then and it was packed on both sides, Shrewsbury brought 1000s down that day. Can't remember much of the match but we drew. Did not go to the replay, which we won to make the semi. Then, depressingly, we didn't turn up against Arsenal at Villa Park, who went on to beat United in the final, the winner scored by a former favourite of ours Alan (Alan) Sunderland! Back then the FA Cup meant the world to us fans. It was something really special.
Which we wore when we beat them in the QF replay back end of the 70s. Good omen.
Look at that pitch!
Great highlights. Remember the disappointment of going out against Arsenal next round, and getting stick from an Arsenal fan at school. Packed Molineux before the John Ireland stand changed it forever. Hard to tell from the digital artefacts, but didn’t look like a blade on grass in that mud-bath! The game would not even be played today in conditions like those, and how many additional fouls and penalties would be awarded by today’s refs /rules...
Neves first outing in the shirt and we lost the game 2-0. I was a little concerned about what was in store for us. Once we beat Leicester at home and won against Middlesborough, you could feel this was different. Now look at us!
I seem to remember it was similar last time we played Liverpool wasn't it? Think they had a replay against Plymouth and as soon as it was over, ticket details were published that night, with tickets on sale the day after to STHs with certain points etc. Imagine it'll be the same again.
What a great encounter. Thanks for adding the clip, matey.
When are the live ties announced ?
Thanks for the memory! Billy Rafferty was not one of my faves, even though he scored that day. It was a young boy's very long hangover from yearning for The Doog!
Be great to 're acquaint ' ourselves with stoke some truly lively encounters at their place
I wish I’d been there mate, but wasn’t born for another few months. I’m sure my dad ****ed my mom off by being there though
Clear bloody dive
Mate you missed out. Molineux in the 70s was special. I started going in '73 and that feeling when you got on the terrace at either end will live with me forever. Lucky really!
'67 for me and the 70's it was ****ing awesome
Remember the game at Molineux well and it wasn't a walk in the park.
The North Bank was chocca, in fact everywhere was chocca. Must have been over 40k, think Billy Rafferty scored for us in a 1-1 draw.
Meeting Stoke with a new manager (assuming they win) will be challenging although we should have enough in the tank to see us through.
Thanks for the clip @brightside great to see. The pitch looked truly dreadful, we wouldn’t be able to play our current passing game on that.
Nice to see Graham Turner playing for Shrews that day too
Heard all about it from the old man mate, he loved the 70s. Dougan, Wagstaffe and Munro were his big hero’s and he still moans about John Richards only getting one England cap (on the wing) to this day!!
Molineux did look great. Glad I got to experience the old south bank for a few years. Grounds were more interesting back than, I’d have liked to have seen the pointy roof on the Molineux St side in the flesh.
Clearly your dad was a good guy, maybe even met him on our travels.
Great days they were and now, totally unexpected and thank you God, it looks like you and my grand kids may have the opportunity to share similar memories in the future.
Nah it's great fun on the bus from the the town centre to the ground
I used it for the pre season game a couple of years ago, the bus was rocking
Buy buy buy
Yes the old Molineux St stand! The terraced houses that were across the road! At the time of that Shrewsbury QF, they had gone and the new John Ireland stand was being built. Never went in the Molineux St stand. Proper match days for me were spent in the old North Bank or the old South Bank (which you too were lucky enough to experience). The only time I ever went into The Enclosure (the terracing below the Waterloo Road Stand) was when I was allowed into a match late (after coming back from Greece to Wolvo by train) and the steward walked me to the South Bank, via The Enclosure, which was closed (the dark days post Bradford disaster). The only time I ever went into the Waterloo Road Stand was for King John's testimonial, when access all areas seemed to be allowed! Memories, old gold memories!
Yes defo over 40k. For me though, the QF against Boro was more memorable. Maybe because I was older. Just remember the atmosphere being electric and sort of knew we were gonna win. Strangely I was more nervous for Shrewsbury - worried we would lose. It was their winger that day who I thought would do us.
