We had better be out by the fifth round. I have been waiting for my trip to ER for more than 45 years. If that Huddersfield game does not go off as planned my thousands of dollars of expenses - including the 150 quid I spent on the hospitality ticket - will have been for nothing.
If we're still in it, we'll get Liverpool, Manure or Chelsea at home, just for you John.

Sorry for giving you that anxiety John.

By my reckoning the 5th round is played Midweek Wednesday March 4th. So it is possible that there would be a Saturday game regardless. But you know what can happen with TV scheduling...

Let's hope all goes as planned you promised me a pint :)

I promised you more than one; a promise I will fulfill regardless of whether there's a game.

In fact, particularly if there's no game.

Looking forward to it already John.

We are on the 9pm flight home so those beers will probably have to come pre match.

Then we can carry you to your posh executive box :lol:

Lets hope it doesn't come to that John

The last time we reached the 5th round when Warnock was our boss in 2013 I think, we knocked out Spurs (his & Reg Varney's moment of glory at Leeds) consequently thumped by Man City in the 5th round. Warnock played his first team that season as he nothing to play for where as Bielsa has bigger fish to fry so I can't see us reaching the 5th round

Hope my thoughts are right for your sake John

Had a feeling we'd get top 6 away. I should be able to make that. Nketiah won't be allowed to play if still here I presume.
What I want from an owner: 1. Ambition. 2. Wage bill control. 3. Cut spending on loan fees. 4. Better scouting. 5. Get bigger fees for our best players. 6.No ego.

Chelsea was my hope but mainly just wanted a top premier league team, arsenal just about fit the bill so all good.

Great draw, high profile game for us.

Always a chance of an upset, will surely be on telly.

If we lose, at least we can say we lost to one of the leading teams in the country rather than a fellow Championship team or worse.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Fancy us tbh. They're in disarray and will put out a weak side. Like Bielsa facing a PL team too.

Not sure they’ll put out a weak side - best chance of a trophy.

They want 4th and they might win Europa League.

We will rest several players, which is a shame, but it's our only chance of rotation after a busy Christmas.

Our last 7 ties have been away. So unfair.

Good tie for us - even if we lose we get decent money. Much better than losing to a lower side.
