FA Cup 4th Round Draw Thread

Post by ClaretTony » Mon Jan 06, 2020 5:30 pm

I've just mistakenly deleted the thread re tonight's draw that was in place.

Draw numbers are at
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44194

Really sorry for deleting the original.

To summarise it for everyone;

Most people wanted a home tie against lower opposition. Although away ties at Carlisle, Tranmere and Blackpool seemed favourable to some.
Others included Oxford, Shrewsbury and Northampton, although there was an interesting aside about a game that was called off at Oxford a long long time ago.
City was expected by at least one, not unsurprisingly with all the doom and gloom on here. Barnsley was another just so we could laugh at the media’s ineptitude.
Others wanted a heads up so they only had to watch the draw and not all the crap that goes on before it.
There you go, we are ball 31 by the way and will be drawn against Millwall.

Didn't see any of the thread, I just deleted it, but we did have a cup tie called off at Oxford back in 1971 in the 3rd round. I was on the coach driving through Banbury when we saw Jimmy Adamson in the middle of the road waving us down to tell us the game was off. The driver was encouraged to hit Adamson if I recall. He wasn't popular. We got hammered 3-0 when it was played.

Went to that game with 3 other Clarets,all fellow students with me in London but all in their 3rd year and me just a 1st.year. Didn't realise it had been called off but should have done seeing it was an evening kick off. The lad driving us that night came from Kent but was.an avid Claret called Pat McCardle. Anyone know him or his whereabouts currently. The other two were Dave Price from Accy and the sadly deceased John Cartmel from Burnley.

Alex Scott doing the draw, I was worried, I’d not seen her on tv for nearly 24 hours.

Could be a good game. 2 sides who don’t really want to be in the cup playing their second strings should be interesting. Shouldn’t be as one sided as say if we drew City.

Could have been City away, again. Not a bad tie really, winnable and at home. Was really hoping for Shrewsbury/Northampton/Oxford away but never mind.

Whenever I see her, I can't get the picture of Bear Grylls giving her a Rectal Rehydration, out of my head.

Not a bad draw, anything's better than City away! Makings of a decent game, neither side will want a replay.

Have Man City been getting a disproportionate amount of home ties in the FA Cup in recent seasons? Seems like it
