Man City Watford Man Utd in the hat. Palace or spurs through tomorrow. Wolves  Brighton need replays. Chelsea have cracking tie v sheff Wednesday. So max of 7 pl sides in last 16. If we beat Brighton there will only be 6 max.

Cup Is wide open. Could do with man united playing Manchester City. Avoid another pl side and you could have a quarter final on your hands. We should be playing a few more senior players in the replay

Yes, beat Brighton and there will be a maximum of 6 Prem sides remaining. If Palace can beast Spurs and the two Manchester clubs draw each other in the next round then anything is possible.

Ideal world there's a Manchester derby. And all other premier sides draw each other. Dingles to get Chelsea away and crash out or better still lose to the shrews at the custard bowl

We need to get past Brighton first.

Yes, but if the draw is favourable then it could turn the replay look a tastier proposition than it might seem at the moment.

The worry with the top sides facing each other is that the Dingles are currently 5th favourites to win the cup. As we are likely to put out a weakened team again for the replay, and seeing as Brighton will surely play a near full strength team (they would be daft not to now - this is their best chance since ‘83 to win a cup), then really i’m still hoping for Chelsea to win tomorrow and the big sides to avoid each other.

Man City to play Wolves at home is my hope.

Wolves have failed better v the top sides than the sides than the bottom sides. Would fancy Watford and palace v them. They might crash out v Shrewsbury

We’ve got to go for it in the replay, if we won there would only be 6 prem teams in the last 16!

If someone gave me the option now of promotion or FA Cup it would be the FA cup everyday. Obviously don’t believe we are good enough to win it now but why not have a go!

There are people who have been going 50 years and seen us win nothing at all yet probably seen us get promoted about 6 times.

If you want the money it’s promotion if you want a day that you can remember for the rest of your life it has to be the FA cup

Who we fancying then(provided we beat Brighton of course)

1 Swansea City
2 AFC Wimbledon
3 Shrewsbury Town or Wolverhampton Wanderers
4 Millwall
5 Brighton & Hove Albion or West Bromwich Albion
6 Bristol City
7 Derby County
8 Doncaster Rovers
9 Chelsea
10 Watford
11 Middlesbrough or Newport County
12 Manchester City
13 Barnet or Brentford
14 Portsmouth or Queens Park Rangers
15 Manchester United
16 Crystal Palace

Clearly want to avoid Man U/Man City/Chelsea, I would also be wary of drawing Wolves just now, would rather meet them further down the line if at all.  Fancy us at home against anyone else in that list though!

Wouldn't grumble too much at an away day to teams in L1/L2 (Or Barnet if they pull off a shock tonight)

Newport County would be a new one for me, not too far either.

Very messy away day back in March.

Went on the train for that one.

A very good day was had despite the 1-0 defeat.
