    Wigan will be bringing their pies a few miles east to Old Trafford

    Wycombe at home for Spurs.

    Disappointing draw overall. Not much prospect of any giant killing and no big teams eliminating another...

    Well at least this should surely bring a long overdue end to United's 55 consecutive FAC game being shown live on television.

    I wouldn't bet on that, imagine it'll be:

    Chavs v Brentford,
    Man U v Wigan,
    Derby v Leicester and
    Palace/Bolton v Manc City

    Pretty happy with Wycombe at home. Should see another chance for fringe players to impress.
    Hate to disrespect the trophy, but I can't see us putting out a full-strength side.

    Hopefully we see two lessons learned from the Villa match: start with our standard formation, and let GKN loose from the start

    Yep. Look at the way that the BBC have reported it:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38564239

    Millwall v Watford and Fulham v Hull could see Premier League sides go out.
    I was surprised that Bournemouth made so many changes and it cost them.
    Could happen again to Watford.

    Very pleased with the draw. I was psyching myself up for the sod's law Chelsea or United away, but another home match plus another chance for the fringe players is a massive bonus with opportunities so few and far between now. It will also provide the perfect opportunity for Isco to have a nice n easy home debut ;)

    Arsenal have a tricky tie and I can see Derby beating Leicester. A winning goal looping off of Bent's arse would be the icing on the cake in that one.

    I like your thinking. How good it would feel to beat the Chavs again at Wembley and as an added bonus, hopefully JT will get sent off.

    I'm actually looking forward to this one. I used to go watch Wycombe quite a lot in the early 2000's. Saw a young Jermain Defoe play for Bournemouth there too (he scored of course).

    Also met and known a lot of people that happen to support Wycombe as well as Spurs. Must be some sort of secret pact between the clubs :huh:

    So Janssen couldn't make it against a championship team. Now he'll have a chance against league 2 opposition.

    He might make it to 70 minutes then <laugh>.

    Shouldn't laugh really, it's gutting to see him look so shot of confidence. He's got it doubly hard too as the ideal thing for him to regain his scoring touch is with substantial game time but there's no way he's getting in over Kane and I also think Son will be used as a striker above him in more competitive matches should Harry miss one/ get subbed off.

    I'm starting to think Spurs are just cursed with bringing in strikers, with the exception of Ade's loan season with us, we haven't signed a good, consistent striker since the days of Berba, Keane and Defoe, instead we've relied on our most prized asset from the academy. Bent, Pav, Ade (perm), Soldado and now Janssen all struggled. Perhaps it's just a sign to say that Harry's best competition is going to be Harrison (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, Poch!)? That should be a game to give him a chance as well, stick him up top alongside Janssen, with GKN and Edwards out wide.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this one as well all my years standing on the shelf watching spurs this time I will be in the away end with my wycombe mates most of whom support spurs anyway .hopefully I won't have trouble getting a ticket but with the stadium upgrade I don't know how many wycombe will be allocated.

    Traitor!!! <laugh>.

    Unless it's changed recently, I think FA Cup games have an away allocation of up to 15%, though there's obviously stipulations if clubs/ FA feel there'll be animosity between supporters - which there isn't in this case - so I can see there being a lot issued to Wycombe. Wouldn't surprise me if you guys are allocated blocks 35 and 36 as well as the typical away ones.
