    Can't believe it. Just logged in (from my house in Spain) to see the draw. My band (Polysteel) drawn number 1. 4BR comments aren't too positive either. Don't believe you can win a contest of this quality off a number 1 draw. Still...... first in the bar....not a bad consolation!!!

    Mount Charles have got a good draw. I fancy their chances off a number 11. Leyland too have fallen quite lucky.

    I spoke with a few of the Polysteel players who said that Philip Harper was delighted with their performance. Many in the audience commented that they could hear the resounding... "yes" from him as they band concluded on their last note.

    Each person to their own views, hence why tMP are here today to provide that alternative viewpoint. Takes all sorts I suppose eh!!!

    i spoke to a polysteel player on the phone and although disapointed with the no 1 draw, very pleased with the perfomance.

    - early reports back comment that contrary to 4BR opinion that the band showed good dynamic range as well. Glad to see Michael Ball in the box though!

    I've just spoken to a polysteel player aswell, who also said the performance when really well, especially considering it was a number 1 draw.... and also that Phil was really impressed with the perfomance!

    I see 4BR liked 8 and 9, Aveley and Pennine. However, all the feedback says that Phil Harper liked the Polysteel performance. Phil is a quality musician and if he says he liked it then I'll keep on looking forward to the rsults regardless of how everybody else plays!. It's not over 'til the fat lady sings!!

    (But got to go and watch the cup final now!)

    Any idea of what the general audience's thoughts were about the performance of Polysteels?

    Thats good to hear, hopefully the band will finally have some good luck and get the good result they deserve, shame about the number 1 draw but at least they sound pleased.

    I see that 4BR have a high split count for Tredegar ... although it was summed up as a highly musical performance :-? (... what points would you award?).

    Hmm i was just wondering about this performance did anybody hear it because we all know 4br so it maybe a bit biased towards them!??
    What were Mount Charles like also anybody!?

    do we know who is doing the "adjudactions" for 4 BR?

    So we're up to band 13 and half time in the cup final. 4BR are still waiting for a clear winner, maybe they will keep on having to wait right until about band 17!

    However, the cup final has been really exciting for those of us who are strictly neutral (but supporting West Ham for the day!). 2 - 1 to the Hammers at half time. Good open game.

    I'd honestly rather come 6th than 3rd or 4th..... i hate 3RD!!! Still, drawn no 1 and still in 2nd place by band 12 is not a bad show. The draw is SO IMPORTANT in these tight contests.... how often does the winner come from around the half way, or just after, part of the draw?

    Whoops..my maths is rubbish (too many cup final beers....(and what a great game that was)

    Polysteel were in 3rd place up til band 14, which is still good going. And 4BR said that they had liked 8 and 9.. well done the 4BR adjudication team!
