I think I’m getting a sense of déjà vu right about now.
It seems we just can’t get away from these guys. So Nottingham Forest have been drawn away to Premier League side Chelsea in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Having lost to the same guys last season in exactly the same round, and having been knocked out in the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup the season before, hopefully it will be third time’s the charm as the Reds head off to Stamford Bridge in early January. Or hopefully it will be three times in a row, depending on where you stand when it comes to the FA Cup and its importance.
Well whatever their views on the competition, there was only one thing that was going through the minds of Forest fans when the balls came out of the bowl, and that was cursing their luck that it just happened to be Frank Lampard’s side yet again.
Why?! Again?! Sick of it

It's no wonder the FA Cup becomes less appealing every year. Seems as though the same teams just draw each other.

How many times have we played these @ Stamford Bridge in cup competitions in recent years?. 🙄

Were you happy with the FA Cup draw?
I wonder if any Forest fans have got loyalty cards for any of the bars around Stamford Bridge, because they’d certainly come in handy given the rate they travel down there.
