    We are through. Liverpool and Arsenal out. And just had the joy of watching Everton exit to Millwall!

    Bring on the next round!!

    Let's wait for the draw before we get ahead of ourselves.

    This post has just guaranteed us City away!

    West Ham likely to be out too at this rate. Won't be many Prem teams left in the mix....

    Why bother? We’ll lose to Man City.

    7th place is a bigger prize anyway.

    In all seriousness, as I write this, the only PL clubs certainly through are us and the two Manchester clubs. One more definite from Palarse/Spuds tomorrow.

    That is why it is worth taking the Cup seriously. Fortunately our reserves did,

    Really need Man City to get drawn against Man Utd and Spurs (if they gothrough against Palace) to get Chelsea (if they go through against Watford C).

    Brighton and Wolves both getting replays helps us as well. An extra midweek game for them.

    3-2 now. Praying the Wombles can hold on. Was good seeing Watford born and bred Vinnie Jones doing some punditry half time - top man!

    Almost guaranteed that we get city away now
     
  11. Who do we want?

    Derby County
    Man U
    Man C
    Tottenham /Palace
    Chelsea/Wednesday
    Wolves/Shrews
    Wimbledon
    Millwall
    Brighton/WBA
    Newport/Middlesbro
    Portsmouth/QPR
    Donny Rovers
    Swansea
    Bristol C
    Barnet /Brentford

    Barnet home for me!

    A home game vs the following, in order of preference;

    Barnet
    Newport
    Wimbledon
    Shrewsbury
    Doncaster
    Portsmouth

    Biggest thing is to avoid Man City, Spurs, Chelsea and Utd.

    No one cares about the Cup.

    If we get City now I will accept my punishment! Couldn’t help but get excited though, still love the FA Cup and dreaming of what might be is all part of the fun!

    Any of them at home except the two Manchester clubs.

    Or Liverpool.

    Home tie can probably edge anyone on a “one off” bar City.

    There is nothing better than still being in the cup and dreaming about winning it. One day I firmly believe we will do it.

    City away for me. Important to get Gomes sharp and he will get a few shots in that one.

    Yeah but Bristol clubs have had a habit of being our undoing in cup competitions of late. Derby away would be preferable.

    Expect some hot balls to keep the top teams apart...

    No replays of course in the 5th round.

    We seem to be doing better away form home.

    We will. But unfortunately everyone on the forum today will have died by then. Including all of Moogs. Our fans will also be able to get home from places like Newcastle in 5 nano seconds in their spacecars.

    Derby or Donny away please :D

    I think I put in enough mileage to watch Watford home games to be given a pass not to go to some away games thanks.

    Looks like Spurs don't really fancy it although that might forced upon them.

    Mind you its Palace at home so they'll find a way to mess up.

    Wonder what Chris Sutton's thoughts are on the spurs line up?!

    Spurs heading out already. 2-0 down to Palace before half time.

    Whoops!
    Spurs not having a good week for penalties.

    Spurs going out can't be bad either

    Good to see Palace striking a blow for the dwindling band of Prem also-rans in this season's competition. I've always liked them. And Wednesday.

    As much as I don’t like Palace, I’d love this result! Only us and Wolves from the middle pack left in cup, with just 3 of the big 6 as well!

    No idea why but I think we’ll get a good draw next round and then Chelsea at home QF, win and then an easier game semi-final before facing one of the Mancs in the final.

    Not sure what the odds are on that but I’ve definitely got cup fever this season!
