Oh go on then, I'll start one.

A month ago I was really looking forward to this. We were on a decent unbeaten run and Brentford were in free fall. Whilst our opponents haven't exactly turned it around, drawing their last three, we've fallen utterly flat and now my enthusiasm has dipped.. We've struggled not just with our results but in tired, lethargic and mentally shot performances. I was hoping we'd have at least a full seven days to recover but the games come thick and fast at this time of year. The threadbare squad isn't coping.

Jordan Graham should play tomorrow so that's at least one thing to look forward to. Might we see Sykes too?

My prediction: Brentford 3 Oxford 1. Two goals in the first 20 mins for them, we net one in the 60th and they get one 10 mins later. The game ticks away for 20 more boring minutes.

I'm off the positive bus, I think we'd reached 'Misery Terminus' and that's my stop ...

I can't see a win either (logically) so will travel more in hope than expectation. Yes, it would be nice to see Graham (who I think will start) and Sykes (probably on the bench).
Neither of them address our striker problem of course and we've lost the last three so I think we need to score first if there is any chance of getting much out of this.
I hope it's not too brass monkeys.

It's the fa cup anything can happen...especially with a Saturday 3pm kick off.... battling 1-1 draw, with an extra game added to the overloaded schedule for a few weeks time

Nailed on loss for us unfortunately. We're abysmal in the cups and always play weakened sides.

Brentford 0 Oxford 1.

We’re just abysmal at the moment, so probably 2-1 to you, but most of us don’t really care anymore as the league’s more important now unfortunately.
