loyalroyal4life no chance of tv, saturday 3pm perfect and hopefully well priced again


Not so sure. Don't the TV like Premiership v lower league clubs in dodgy form?
Mind you it is West Brom so you maybe right.


Whilst they often do, the choices usually have to be made before the replays are played, so this tie will be ignored as they won't want to have to show Reading v Peterborough live.

Should be our 5th weekend on the trot with a Saturday 3 o'clock kick off at home ... unless those TV idiots muck us about for the hell of it

Perfect nondescript fixture that we want at home. I just hope that WBA fan doesn't come back on here crowing about Clarke if we draw them

Hopefully we can get to the business end of the cup via the back door again. Although with West Brom, it might be a case of getting in via the side door...

Lower West
Winston Smith At least Peterborough would make for an interesting game, but West Brom? :roll:


Still be a Premiership scalp. Winnable game who ever we play.

At least no silly KO time for TV either.


I don't get this mentality. Surely if you're a Championship side EVERY game is winnable even against top Premier League opposition?

Most seem to think that West Brom are nailed on to beat Posh in their replay; I'm not too sure about that.

The Baggies failed to win their home tie, and Posh are renowned for scoring goals.

OUT

(Unfortunately as I thought we were playing Boro away I had made alternative plans which I now can't get out of... same reason for not attending Walsall game!)

CountryRoyal I agree it's winnable and certainly one of the better ones to pull, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, we're in danger of sounding like the Walsall lot.

I don't think anyone's assuming we'll win, or talking about being in the QFs

Excellent, another FA Cup run to paper over the obvious cracks.

Shame its at home, would have loved Peterborough away or even WBA in a repeat of 2010 5th tie, a memorable away day.

Maybe the home will be a draw to set one of those up, have a feeling it will be.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm hoping for West Brom. They look dire and Posh look very handy.

Samuelson looks a great player for Peterborough.
He reminds me of Glenn Little. I hope we try and sign that kid. It'll probably cost us though. Posh players ain't cheap.

It'll unsurprisingly be Posh then.

Berahinho looks unfit, cack and uninterested.

Samuelson and Forrester look too good - we could do with a West Brom come back
