Fortunately for Burnley they will only face Haaland twice next season .
Even a out of form Man City is just broken. Get Southampton to play against Burnley and not sure who would win
Top post that mate, thank you. Really appreciate that, good advice on staying at the ground afterwards, I'll more than likely do that.
Regarding the whole "Brighton not being a good draw" thing, we started our FA Cup campaign having to go up against the L1 leaders and highest ranked team in the competition, then we had two more L1 teams before getting through to the 4th Round for the first time in I don't know how long to draw Luton away and then when we finally get a Prem team it's away to Southampton. In short, Brighton away is the best draw we've had in the competition by an absolute mile in terms of a day out.
We'll need to be on our absolute best and hope that you lot are having an off day but I suspect we'll lineup with 3 CBs and wingbacks, 3 midfielders and two up top. The plan will be to hit you on the counter and just drag you down into a scrap. In Luke Waterfall we have one of the best headers of the ball in the EFL so we'll be looking to win set pieces around the box whenever possible. Basically, the plan is to go and try and out League 2 one of the best footballing sides in the country as it's all we've got. Fingers crossed.

Bench: Pretty much the rest of our entire squad.
The team picks itself at the moment other than perhaps two decisions that need making. Kieran Green might play over Alex Hunt. Hunt is probably our best chance of unlocking your defence via the means of a through ball though but is a bit less experienced than Green who is a completely different CM in that he's a ball winning battleaxe. Who Paul Hurst picks here will say a lot about how he's approaching the match in my opinion. The other spot up for grabs is the focal point of the attack alongside our talisman and best player John McAtee. Danilo Orsi has played his best football for us in the cup, being influential in us knocking Luton out in both matches however Ryan Taylor returning from a hamstring injury is first choice and the best partner for McAtee. I think a fully fit Taylor starts but we haven't had a full 90 minutes out of him since his return so I think it'll be Orsi.
Haaland 2 goals away from Van Nistlerooy best season of 44, last one I remember more without Googling was Clive Allen with 49 for Spurs in 1987
Absolutely ridiculous player. I just hope that the blank he draws against our defence at Wembley in the semi/final isn't considered season defining in any way whatsoever.
You at Brighton today?
Yep, just getting into Brighton on the train now. Nerves/excitement fully kicked in!
You got whole end I take it? Remember doing Grimsby away in 2000, every ****er owned an Alsation dog and it kicked off like **** everywhere.
After seeing Southampton play in the last round I would guess it would be Burnley.
Palhinha is back for Fulham today. But we need a lot more to go for us, need to get back to our early season form and start taking our chances.
Will Marco Silva choose to put Leno in goal instead of Rodak? Rodak is a good goalkeeper but doesn't command the same respect from the opposition and we need are best out there to compete.
This will start the rumours going !
Lineker lost his voice apparently..
Gary Lineker will not present FA Cup coverage after losing his voice
I thought the Championship grounds didn’t have VAR in the cup ?
Don;t know what McCoist is gibbering about saying the Sheffield United players arms were in a natural position, penalty; all day long.
Came in this round apparently. Bit random.
Ally adamant it's not a pen but it's blatant for me. If you stop the ball potentially going in the goal with your hand it should always be a pen IMO.
Yellow card right as well as it wasn't on the line. Keeper may have saved it but we'll never know.
Bit of a lame penalty for Blackburn re VAR hitting body before hand . .
Seagulls v Mariners later , ought to have Cantona reffing
Fulham were sh*te v Arsenal last weekend but reckon Man U will play a weakened team & the away team can win a penalty shoot out after a 2-2 draw , that's what I hope happens for my massive £1 Sky " free " buildabet .
Didn't hit his body.
Was hoping this'd be a good game and it hasn't disappointed!
Good start to the game .
2 goals .
Cracking game this
It's good to see the ref letting a lot go but he needs to even it up a bit. Giving SHU everything.
Thought that was miles off in real time!
Well done lino.
