    Nice to see a couple of proper ties in the last 16.

    Crawley v Colchester
    Oxford v Sunderland
    Burton last year's semi finalists still in the mix though Leicester at home will be tricky.

    Doubt if it'll be an issue but if you need a spare number for tickets let me know, i'll be travelling up for it but i think a few of my group are already in for the league game on the Saturday so are going to give it a miss.

    We all qualify first day of every away game so it's basically a guaranteed ticket too ;)

    More than welcome mush, there's normally a group of about 7/8 of us at aways (think we have 10 at Spurs and had more for the Skates) only criteria is no replica shirts and no vlogging ;)

    Good draw really. Two of the big 6 will be out and there’ll be at least one league 1 club and one league 2 club in the quarters

    I give you full permission to thrust a pint glass into my throat if I do either.

    I also like to film myself cheering in the crowd if we score. ;)

    Well that isn't an ideal draw :laugh:. Other teams must be rubbing their hands though, one of Liverpool/Arsenal, Chelsea/United and Tottenham out before it even gets serious.

    As long as Abu Dhabi FC are in it I can't imagine many teams getting excited. The thought of having to play them in the FA cup final last year took the gloss off the dramatic semi win.

    Maybe one day they'll actually get one of the tougher draws in domestic cup competitions :rolleyes:. Seem to always end up getting to the finals playing lower Prem or lower leagues...

    Not a bad game really last night, had a great second half but still nothing on the Man U one five years ago. But I'm confused as to why we effectively played our B team against Liverpool, even with a team full of reserves and youth prospects. I don't have the slightest clue why Moore was used in goal when Nicholls is 100% fit and has played every league game this season. While that howler could have happened to any keeper on a bad day, it doesn't excuse his awful distribution throughout the night.

    With a full strength team we could have made it 2-1 or taken it to penalties on 2-2 but we looked like what we are at the moment; a team missing several key players through injury and especially the most creative ones. Too many times we got the ball upfront then just sat back like 'what now?' and lost it or gave it away with a poor pass. It might have been Liverpool but it's still becoming concerning that it's now three games in a row without scoring since Healey got injured and with no viable main striker out of the alternatives.

    Liverpool looked competent all-round, probably Milner stood out most as you'd expect from the most senior head in their squad. Their second goal was excellent from both the build-up and clinical finish by Hoever. Remember Oxlade-Chamberlain having a decent effort too that could have been a great goal if it'd been a few inches further in. Decent match, but would have liked to do it with a decent squad rather than our B-team.

    I'd have preferred another Premier League team at home tbh but ah well.

    We were magnificent against West Ham as well. Baptiste looks like a gem of a player.
