Reserve Team Regular

Also looks like "our" teams are out of the FA Sunday National Cup:
*Aris lost 0-1 to Northampton Duke of York (from Northamptonshire Sunday Combination)
*The Lounge (conquerors of the mighty Baldon Sports) were comfortably beaten 0-3 by Britannia United (mid table side in the Aylesbury Sunday Football Combination who have lost 3 of the 5 league games they have played this season).
These results make me wonder. Do we overrate our London/south-east clubs? Are we really "that good"? Our best teams like Aris, Baldon, Enfield Rangers, London Maccabi Lions etc get knocked out in early rounds. Year after year, our teams get brushed aside my teams outside London or from up north (especially). A team that is bottom of their league in Birmingham got into the 4th round! (further than our London teams). The usual suspects like Oyster Martyrs are already in the 5th round. Like I said earlier in this thread, no London team has won that cup for nearly 20 years!
Are the London teams simply big fish in a little pond?
