    Did you notice at Sunday's game, even some of the advertising was in Chinese....because...the beeb can easily sell the game to China?

    Did I hear somewhere that is 15 home draws on the trot for Millwall?

    I reckon they warm up Millwall's and freeze Chelsea's.
    1) make sure these two are kept apart
    2) make sure the warm ones are drawn at home.
    :D

    Watched the draw on the one show yesterday... before the draw a kid gets asked who he wants in the draw ( think he was a Lincoln fan?). He responds with 'Man U away, just for the money really'

    How fucking sad is that from a ten year old boy.

    Poor kid. Minds already warped to be more bothered about the money as opposed to a probable once in a lifetime draw against one of the world's biggest clubs.

    The 'Magic' of the modern cup.

    It is seven. Fc flyde- wycombe- southend-braintree-Bournemouth-watford-Derby or leicester.
    It wouldn't surprise me if they did.

    I take your point but the money Lincoin could earn from such a tie helps keep them afloat for the future. It will be uniteds reserve team that turns up anyway.

    I think the fa cup only really appeals to us older fans. It was massive back in the day but sadly no more and i blame the premier and champions league for it's demise. The mentality now is that finishing fourth in the prem is better than winning the fa cup.

    Not sure the FA cup appeals to premiership clubs anymore. Though, it's still a gateway to Europe I think.

    It's an interesting enough competition but it's no FA Vase.

    Having the semis at Wembley ruined it for me but weekends like the one just gone will keep the competition's reputation going.

    It appeals to them once they get to the quarterfinals I think, get that far and they think they have a chance of winning and take it a bit more seriously. If they get knocked out before that then they just shrug their shoulders and carry on.

    Bring on the champions! Leicester at home for us then it is. They will probably select a lot of reserves for this game as they have champions league a few days later.

    It will do the Arsenal palyers good to see grass roots footie; they may even struggle with the perceived lack of facilities.

    The one thing Arsenal players won't see at Sutton is grass roots.

    He often gets a bad press as a pundit, but kudos to Shearer for lambasting both Ranieri and McClaren for fielding such weakened teams.

    I hope it is settled tomorrow either way. The cup run is causing a back log of games for our small squad. It's a sell out with 3,000 Leicester fans coming down. Leicester's players will be getting a warm Millwall welcome and 90 minutes of grief.

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    Huddersfield City should be a good game .Huddersfield are doing well in the Championship and City could , with one eye on the Monaco game, field a slightly weakened team. Millwall could pose a threat at home to Liecester. Fulham concede too many so expect Spurs to go through although they were piss poor in the Europa on Thursday.expect the other EPL teams to go through.

    the last time a non league club beat a top flight team, at their ground, in 90 minutes was 1975. Once again it was Burnley losing 0-1 (to Wimbledon). Twas my first match, wish I'd made it up for this one too.
