Telly clappers on suicide watch, no chance our match will be shown.
Both concentrating on the league but either could beat us. Horrible draw.
I wonder if Arsenal v Utd will be on the tv????
A very meh! draw, could have been worse but Newcastle seem to be our bogey side this year
Who did Woking get ?
Praying Blackburn beat the Geordies
The FA Cup is dead to me now.
Didn't we play Newcastle the other year in the cup as well? Yawn yawn boring. Fat Spanish wine waiter etc. I think we should just forfeit and not bother. Wash our hair or something that day.
Why? Wouldn’t reckon there is much difference in our chances either way.
Assume you'll be going...so I'm sure you'll post pictures of your experience.
Blackburn is a terrific gritty northern away day. Hope they beat the horse-thumpers.
Reckon Blackburn will win the replay and we will be facing Danny Graham.
Maybe field a stronger side for the next tie ?
I would have done a lot better thank you.
Blackburn are home in the replay, let hope they win and then I think we could beat them at their place, Newcastle well who knows I don't!
Not the worst draw. Very winnable. Shame it’s another away game though.
In the words of the great GT, 'Do I not like that.'
Not brilliant but could be worse.
Moaning Rafa or incomprehensible Mowbary.
Winnable and with the way the latter part of the draw occurred,it presents a great chance I'd say?
It will be a battle of whose 80% second string team is stronger, assuming it's Newcastle. Alternatively Blackburn will beat us because they will be 100% physical & will generally want it more.
FA cup lost it's glamour long ago. Only slightly less so than the Rumbelows league cup.
Pathetic. Couldn't even draw a single side
The way the competition has went so far we should play a full strength team in the next round. 6 Premier league clubs already out including Liverpool, Manchester United Vs Arsenal, Palace vs Tottenham and Man City have Burnley and some tricky games for other premier league clubs. We have a genuine opportunity for a good cup run this season.
3 pm Saturday then I guess.
Train tickets already ******* expensive.
That's the main bit pissing me off. Hoping it gets moved.
Not sure A++++++ needed for this one.
Probably depends on who wins - if its Blackburn might be on somewhere.
I mean they had us v Millwall on BBC the other season...
Another trip to France to take on the star of 'Allo Allo' it is then.
To be fair we battered them for 45 mins at their place but couldn't score (no shock there). Take a few
chances this time and we have a fair shot. Equally, if Blackburn win it's a nice cold day up north to
Ewood Park. I have fond memories of Micha Hyde playing a blinder in a rather famous 4-3 win
for the hornets.
They will also see us as beatable so it's up to us to put out a strong side and show we actually want to
take this competition seriously. A few of the fringe players did well yesterday so defo be a tough selection
for the goblin. Depends where we are leauge wise too.
Could this season be a rerun of the Quique season?
Come off it.
Arsenal v Man U
Millwall v Everton
Palace v Spuds
Accrington v Derby/Saints
AFC Wimbledon v Wet Spam
Shrewsbury (if they win replay) v Wolves
Not even convinced we would be next choice after that, probably Citeh v Burnley.
Southampton and Newcastle facing replays
3 of Arse, Man U , Tottenham, Palarse, Man C and Burnley to go.
Based on league position, if we get through against Blackburn/Newcastle, we'd be 5th favourites...
(and 3rd if by some miracle Burnley and Palace win)
Not great but could be worse and definitely a chance of progressing. Possibility of it being on TV especially if it's Blackburn
I was quite hoping we'd actually get Wimbledon too. Never been to their ground and it's
a fan-made club too. I wonder if they still play the "Wombles of Wimbledon" theme.
We will be between 11th and 7th.
Whens the draw then?
Having beaten Woking we've drawn Dog and Duck FC. Big step up for the next round.
I tend to agree but with these international TV games will don't think it will be a 3pm Saturday kick-off.
Calling it now!
Full strength team please. No need for rotation. We’ve only only got one game per week until cup tie and first team have had 10 days off between muff and palace. Rotate for the Spurs in midweek game if necessary, them back to full strength away against Brighton on 2nd.
