  • Brilliant. I saw us play Mansfield at home in '78, but never went away.
    They are one of 6 I need to tick off.

    Good work CE. This will put me on 84 (83) with Charlton. When I throw Burton in at the end of November I’ll be quite happy. The remaining ones then become difficult as they are League 2 and teams keep dropping out etc

    Morecombe
    Cambridge
    Newport
    Forest Green
    Lincoln
    Accrington (still gutted I missed that one this season)
    Macclesfield

    Spurs of course will need to be redone when they finally move
  • Gah.
    Saw them play tranmere when John fortune was on loan at mansfield.
    Had always seen it as an ace up my sleeve when comparing with mates on how many grounds we’ve done.
  • Might go to Sutton v Slough.
    Remember this as a localish derby in the mid 60s when both were in the Athenian League. Amongst the first games I went to.
    Come on you Rebels!!!

    Same. I’d like to go but I’ll have no chance if on the Sunday.

  • Could be a potential TV game? Tempted to go to this, but waiting to see if date gets re-arranged
  • This has another cup embarrassment wrote all over it

    Get out the cup as soon as possible we've got the league to concentrate on
  • This has another cup embarrassment wrote all over it

    You said how meaningless the game was at Stevenage. : - )

    This will be a huge win for Charlton.

    Doesn’t seem to be any direct trains from London to Nottingham that I can see that weekend.

    Engineering work Between Bedford & Leicester that weekend,alternative route from Kings Cross via Peterborough & Nottingham.
    I will post a thread when kick-off date/time confirmed.
    Mansfield was the largest English town without a railway station....until 1995.
  • wont be attending this one was hoping for a local away game, hope we give it a good go and get a decent draw/day out for the fans. personally i wouldnt mind a big london club in round 3, and no that does not mean millwall @Big_Bad_World
  • Nightmare of a place to get to by train. Alfreton the nearest station and it's a schlep from there. I was ticking the ground off with a mate and they were playing Wimbledon. The few visiting fans who were heading back to the station had to run the gauntlet and we had little option but to join them. I also ran into a squad of Mansfield at a similar visit to Hartlepool where we were first assumed to be Mansfield fans by the police and shepherded into the escort against our wishes and eventually allowed to leave in front of the Hartlepool home guard. As we went through the turnstiles, we were attacked by the locals which forced us back out and we had to go into the visiting end, where the Mansfield fans thought we were locals. We decided that lure of the pub was too strong and left five minutes early!

    Mansfield now has a station close to the stadium.

    By Rail:
    One Call Stadium is visible from Mansfield Rail Station. Visiting supporters should leave the station via the footbridge, adjacent to Platform 2. Walk past Burger King, through the retail park, and you will arrive at the North Stand (away end). It should take no longer than five minutes on foot.

    Regarding Hartlepool/Mansfield crowd trouble,there is a history of this which dates back to the miners strikes of the 70/80s where the Notts miners refused to back the strikes & the Durham miners did.

    Wow sounds great, cant wait!

    Your not going you said
  • nice little ground .. Mansfield, mid table, they are the draw specialists of L2 .. they don't score many and concede even less .. I expected them to be higher up the league than they are at present after last season's Steve Evans' spending spree (before he moved to the Posh) .. this won't be easy, but we're due a good cup run (I hope)

    Sorry to say for some of you, but this will attract plenty of our ‘risk’ group after what they pulled on a group of ours about 10 years back.

    Decent away draw butjust a shame for me personally they’re in a new identikit stadium (all-be-it only 3 sides), as the joy of lower league aways for me is going to some of the remaining traditional old grounds out there.

    What happened
    Group of ours went to Mansfield on way back from Chesterfield and got attacked by them unprovoked in a pub. Glasses, snooker balls, chairs the lot. Left a sour taste ever since for those concerned.

    Yep not going, in my own words right here:

    So maybe I am
  • Fancy a giant killing here and a 2-1 win to Charlton ;)

  • Ground tickers will be happy! Nice to get someone new, and a new ground for most. Indeed there will probably be more of us wanting tickets than if we were playing them at home!

    already ticked. we won 3-0 when i went. Alan Dugdale era...anyone care to help me with the year?

    Sounds right. A good little ground back then. We won with ease, which always helps
  • I remember the 2-2 at the Valley, we were 2-0 down and playing some awful stuff, Dick Tydeman was getting most of the abuse until he lashed one in from 25 yards. Peacock then equalised and then we got a late penalty which we missed, Peacock again I think.

    Didn't know this but wondered why it was quite so aggressive....

  • I can't go to the game. My 4 year old kid thought that Mansfield dont let women have their own fields.
