Barrow Dream Set To Go Up In Smoke!
Barrow manager Dave Bayliss has gone to town on the players with some amazing threats, but he flew off the handle last week saying (after defeat to Forest Green) "most of those lads will not be here within the next two weeks."
Not quite the build up you would expect to the biggest game in Barrow's recent history.
The Conference part timers have reached Saturday's third round clash at the Riverside by beating League Two side Brentford.
Dave Bayliss: "We can't wait to get to January now. We're looking to bring players in.
"I feel disgusted, sick to the stomach, about that showing (at Forest Green).
"That showing is nothing, and most of those lads will not be here within the next two weeks."
The fact the BBC decided not to show the game must go in Middlesbrough's favour.
There is enough media attention on Gareth Southgate without jury by TV, and let's hope the REAL Boro turn up on Saturday.FA CUP THIRD ROUNDFriday 02nd January 2009
