Ask a fan: The Accrington in the cup edition

Ask a fan: The Accrington in the cup edition

Tonight we travel to League Two side Accrington Stanley in the first round of the Carling Cup, and we want to know exactly who they are!

I will be boycotting milk for the night, but that's by the by.

Anyway, I asked the editor of Vital Accrington to give us the low-down on his side.

Right...seven questions and seven questions only:


1. What's your User name?

MartynRobbo



2. How long have you been supporting Accrington?

Around 16 years now.



3. Who is your favourite ever Stanley player?

Paul Mullin - The clubs record appearance maker and is still hitting the back of the net aged 35. He was transfer listed in the summer because of money problems at the club, and we needed to lower the wage bill, but no one made a good enough offer and he is now off the list and staying at the Crown Ground.



4. Who's your star player?

We do have a few now, but for me it is Jimmy Ryan. He is a young lad who used to play with Liverpool and Shrewsbury and is being watched by much bigger teams already, and is destined for big things in the future.



5. How do you think you will do in the coming season?

Obviously being Accrington Stanley everyone thinks we will finish stone dead last every season, but for the past three years since our return to the Football League we have defied the odds. I think it will be another long season, but we will finish clear relegation in midtable.



6. Favourite and worse football grounds visited

My favourite as a Stanley fan would be The Molineux - Wolverhampton Wanderers. Once played them in the Carling Cup and we played fantastically and gave them a real run for their money, but the ground and venue is magnificent. There are a few contenders for the worst, but Luton springs to mind simply because you have to enter the stadium through a row of terraced houses which is a bit random. Then you over look all of the neighbours' gardens when walking up into the ground. Strange one.



7. And finally....what's going to be the result on Tuesday?

I would love an Accrington win obviously, but I think Walsall will just about come out on top, but it will be a hard game for your lot. Accrington 1-2 Walsall.


How very modest. Not sure about your favourite ground, but what can you do! Good luck to Stanley tonight, hope we win though haha!

Also, a big thanks to MartynRobbo for taking time out to speak to Vital Walsall.
