FA Cup 5th Round

by Sutekh » 30 Jan 2016 17:51

Draw being made at about 6.15pm tomorrow

Think many of us would want Shrewsbury at home but I expect it'll be a crap visit to Blackburn or Leeds

A home draw would give us 5 consecutive Saturdays of home games

A game with ManU means we'll be on the telly as they are always on irrespective of who or where they play.

Finally the win today now means a nice Tuesday night visit to Middlesbrough is on the cards (still at least that means a weekend might not be ruined)

Could do with with Shrewsbury or a championship side at home. But I think we might get one of the big boys, home or away

As with every year I fear Arsenal - particularly at home. At least away you get a day out.

Anyone but them please.

Fair shout Dave. I want another crack at a day out at Wembley, so would rather avoid the premier clubs. Season's over otherwise.

Carlisle away. It's a ground I've not seen Reading play at and my '92 grounds' thing is it only counts if Reading are playing there.

I'd fancy our chances against Liverpool, West Brom, Watford or Bournemouth from the PL. Not favourites or anything, just in with a good shout.

Shrewsbury would be nice. But we're unlikely to get a comparatively easy run again and it would be nice to get to a semi on merit more than from an easy run, and that takes besting a PL side.

Not Arsenal or City though. i can't see us beating them.

Not sure anyone who gets to a semifinal feels they didn't get there 'on merit' !
Personally I think a trip to Old Trafford is a winnable one at the moment and would love to see us beat United.
Spurs is a great away day, certainly the best in London (just pipping West Ham).

Arsenal may be ok because they may go easy to concentrate on the league.

Would quite fancy Carlisle, would be a new ground and they seem to be a cracking club.
Will be setting off straight after the draw it we do get them as I know it's a long way....

Shrewsbury or West Ham (A).

One last trip to Upton Park, hopefully on a par with 2006 and 2012 in terms of carnage.

West Ham. Say goodbye to the ground. Anyone else remember the days of the Chicken Run?

Don't want a prime fixture on the Sunday (home or away). Anyone on Saturday will be fine.
