Slade: Looking forward to facing Hull

The O's beat Championship opposition in the shape of Norwich and Swansea on their way to a fifth-round clash with Arsenal two seasons ago which eventually went to a replay.

And they have the chance to repeat the trick after earning a trip to the KC Stadium in the third round by seeing off non-league Alfreton 4-2 on Sunday afternoon.

"It'll be a tough game. Hull City are going very well under Steve Bruce at the minute," said Slade.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
