    I was at the last FA Cup tie against Everton in 1964 & still have the programme.

    On this draw, I feel it is a good one, it will be a great game for the new owner to be involved with, assuming it has gone through okay by then and should get a good crowd particularly if they make the admission reasonable.

    Same here. That was the game that hooked me on City, the atmosphere with Everton fans like something off another planet compared to our fans.
    My one prediction is that there won't be as large an attendance at this one.<laugh>

    It was the only game I ever persuaded my father to go with me. We stood in the North Stand, and he lasted 15 minutes and had to leave. I found out later that during the war he was crammed in a troop carrier, and from that experience was very claustrophobic. I stayed and walked home later.

    I well remember us doing them 2-0, new years day 2015. Hernandez played an absolute blinder.

    The only team I had seen us play which the biggest City fanatic I knew hadn't seen us play was Everton as he was too young to have been there in 1964. He had a full set of seeing us play every team that were in the 4 divisions when he first saw City apart from a couple who dropped out of the league when in different divisions. Sadly, after seeing just one and a half seasons of us innthe PL he collapsed and died at work. Frightening as the pathologist said he was the fittest 50 year old that he had come across.

    My first ever proper City game. Still remember the excitement of seeing the pitch for the first time ( we didn't have much of a garden ourselves) Stood in front of my old man and his brother in the North Stand, against the white metal perimeter fence in front of the invalid cars. Was even allowed to stop up late and watch the highlights of the replay from Goodison Park on the telly in midweek.

    I remember seeing a group of Everton fans wearing bell bottom jeans, not to be confused with later flared jeans, and Cuban heeled boots. A couple of weeks later they were in some Hull shops. Up to then round here people were still tapering jeans as tight as possible.

    You mentioning there "Time they were a-changing" Is one of of the song which brings back away days at that time, we were sitting on the train in Paragon Station, and some guy had a transistor radio and Bob Dylan was singing that very song. I think it was York away.

    Good for me but perhaps not good for the Club in terms of receipts?

    Chances of a decent crowd knackered.

    You get paid a fair few quid for FA Cup televised games.

    Nobody tell Ehab.

    We'd have to lose 4-5,000 attendees to match the TV money, so we're definitely better off, as it's likely only significantly affect those travelling from afar.

    Yes,I loosely based it on £25 a ticket v £85000 tv money.. That equates to 3400 non attendees but of course it could be upwards or downwards of £25.

    Interesting nevertheless.

    2,800 at £30 a seat = £84k. We are getting about 10,000 home fans now, add in the possibility of a new owners by then, plus a Premier League side at home just after Christmas, maybe add 5,000 to that then the away support, full allocation taken, 3,000 plus ? My guess would have been a gate of 18/20,000. Live on the BBC ? Lucky to get 15,000 ? So debateable. Probably save a few bob on police costs.
