Hello stattos,

Can anybody tell me when the last time we got knocked out in the first round of all cups entered for that particular season. Hopefully this won't be matched tonight!

I did a bit of :computer: and thought it could have been 1987/88.

This site seems to suggest it hasn't happened since the Associate Members/Football League Trophy came into being:

Nope, we got stuffed at the eventual winners Wolves 4-0 after progressing from the group stage. Steve Bull and Andy Mutch rampant...

Good work.

It seems to suggest the answer to whether we have gone out of three cup competitions in the first round is no, never (yet).

well it's happened... is this the first of many records to be broken this season?

Looks that way - and we almost had one Saturday. If only that bloody ref hadnt felt sorry for us and ruled their goal out!

Another fantastic record broken tonight then, I don't think. The crowd can't be far off our worst ever at home either. Not to mention our lowest position / points tally of last season. The equal worst ever 7-0 drubbing last week. There can't be that many more worst evers that us fans have to endure. Depressing. :(

Can everyone PLEASE stop saying this is the lowest we have ever been this and our lowest ebb that. I have been saying it on a weekly basis for the last year or so and I fear I will end up keep saying it long into next year at this rate... no to tempting fate :cry:
