Good evening. We've got a lot of Blues news to bring you... so let's dive straight in.
Listen; we don't like Mondays either, and it does take us a little time to work ourselves into the working week.
But, my word, waiting for the FA to make and announce the FA Trophy draw is tortuous.
We got there in the end, though, and you can find out who Jon McCarthy's men potentially face in the second round here...
I say 'potentially' as Chester have to get past Witton Albion first.
Safe to say they are going to have to play a lot better at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium tomorrow night than they did at Wincham Park on Saturday.

The under-18s got their FA Youth Cup loss at Broxbourne Borough out of their system with a 5-0 win at Tranmere Rovers' development squad in the North West Youth Alliance (NWYA) Open Cup yesterday.
Nathan Brown (2), Conor Rowbottom, Ilan Ap-Gareth and Alex Downes got the goals.
And, just for good measure, the under-16/17s made it a club double, winning 2-0 at home to Newton in the NWYA First Division thanks to strikes from Brandon Dickinson and Leighton Kendrick.
Let's hope this doesn't get lost; it doesn't deserve to.

The five-year-old Sunderland fan is battling an aggressive form of cancer and has been receiving cards from across the country in an effort to bring him some Christmas cheer.
Another lovely touch
This should not get lost either; more good work from Jim and the team at the Trust.
God bless Harry
It is 12 years to the day since Harry McNally, one of the greatest managers in the club's history, passed away.
Gone, but he'll never be forgotten.
Come home Sarcevic
The shock release of Antoni Sarcevic from his Shrewsbury Town contract has led to Blues fans imploring the gifted midfielder to 'come home' on Twitter.
