    Shrewsbury away is a great draw for Stoke! I'd love the all dayer. Only problem is that I fly back from New York on the very same day. Gutted!

    I am really happy! Fulham away, hopefully on a Saturday (expect/hope other ties to be on TV) which means a day out in the big smoke

    Fulham are bottom of the Prem struggling and likely to play their reserves. Could be a chance of an upset although it wont be like when we beat Liverpool 3-2 a few years ago

    Reading at home, could be a tough game for United these days...

    Even Man Utd won't have trouble against Reading. They're truly awful.

    Spurs at home for Southport if they beat Tranmere in the replay a week today, that'll be quiet something if it happens.

    Got my ticket for the trip to Fulham! We (Oldham) have sold 3000 tickets and they only went on open sale yesterday! Not a bad following for little Oldham as we only get around 3500 home fans.

    We got Shrewsbury away which is decent. Think tickets go on sale tomorrow but I'm debating whether I'll be up for it having returned from NYC two days before hand. Should have shaken the jet lag off by then?!

    Great stuff - the old "neutral end" always helps get more away fans!

    I said I wasn't bothered about the FA cup, but i'm not happy to go out like that! Thankfully I didn't go.

    Fair play to Swansea, at least you enjoyed it Redders.

    Swans played excellent but Villa didnít out a glove on them and didnít even look bothered to do so.
    I was confident when I saw the Villa team sheet and didnít recognise a lot of squad and Swans went relatively strong

    Think Potter is an ex Brum academy so extra incentive for him to win

    Good crowd of 30k+ and can understand Villa wanting to focus on playoffs but nobody from this 2nd string put their hand up for any sort of selection

    Worryingly that team was fairly strong from us

    Only really Chester, Grealish, Bolasie and Abraham (who might be leaving anyway) missing.

    We definitely need a few new signings in ASAP.

    Stoke scraped a draw at Shrewsbury. Rowett may well have been sacked if we'd lost! Perhaps delaying the inevitable...

    What's going wrong Mark? Is he to blame or players being shite? You've largely kept (and added) to the squad - should be doing a LOT better

    If he goes (do you expect him to soon?) who would you want in?

    Butland leaving al gone quiet now as well

    Still got a smile on my face in work today! Even drawing Doncaster away in the next round wont wipe the grin off my face

    What a day! Was a pleasure to stand and celebrate with 4000 fellow Latics fans.

    Even better is we know the current manager Pete Wild - "He's one of our own!"

    Blimey - I thought we struggled tonight. Losing a 2 goal lead in the last 19 minutes is pretty poor.

    We lost a two goal lead AND had to go to extra time but we got through. For all it's worth. We'll just go out to Watford.
    And we lost Ciaran Clark AND Lascelles to injury! (Lascelles literally two minutes after coming on for Clark at half time!)

    So tonight Shrewsbury town passed the ultimate test in football. They beat Stoke away on a tuesday night! May as well crown them champions of the world straight away!

    There IS no potential sale mate!

    It's all just a ruse so he doesn't have to spend any money in the window.
    He did the exact same thing last year with Staveley, this year it's apparently Kenyon.

    As I said to a friend the other day, the only way we will be rid of him is if we go down and stay down. He will then lose the Premier League TV money which is £130m a year, just for being there.
    Lose that, it's not financially viable for him to keep it and he will sell.

    Trouble is, if we go down this time, I think we do a Leeds or a Forest and don't come back for some time!

    Doesn't seem like many serious buyers are stumping up cash though

    Rafa has a decision to make in summer when contracts expires as well........

    The only serious bid we got was when he listed the club for £350m

    Someone bid close to that so he upped the starting price to £400m.


    Rafa will walk at the end of the season. Why would he stay? He's not being given any money to improve the squad. Most of the team are players that were playing when we were in the Championship. He gets literally no backing from his owner and his reputation is getting shot to pieces every time he has to play players like Joselu who is just pure dog shite!
