Ian Royal One request... let's not come across as bitter provincials by bringing up the old West Ham exit grudge. Long since under the bridge for me at least. He's certainly not done a bitter and twisted Mark McGhee mouthing off against us routine that I'm aware of.

True, but the anti-Pardew agenda adds a bit of extra spice to games against his teams and can really get the crowd going.

Hoping for Reading vs Man Utd and Watford vs Everton Semi Finals.

We, of course, have a mountain to climb to achieve that. But I don't think he have the hardest job of those to get there. Hard to look past Arsenal and now Chelsea given how up for the cup the latter seem.

Winston Smith
Nameless I think it is actually against the rules for a player to play against his parent club while on loan.


This. About 10 years ago someone played against their parent club and scored. Made some big headlines at the time. FA changed the rules after that.

Another tough but winnable tie. I fancy us again especially if we play like we did yesterday.

Good to see Pards back at the Mad Stad

You are thinking of Carl Cort. Bobby Robson used to call Shola Ameobi this name all the time, no racisto

I reckon

Saturday

Arsenal/Hull v Watford

Sunday

Shrews/Man Utd v West ham
Reading v Palace

Monday

Everton v Chelsea


Arsenal/Hull v Watford least appealing of all the ties

I had assumed Spurs would beat Palace but as they haven't then this is the best tie we could have after Man U/Shrewsbury. And it's at home - winnable!!!

If we win this then we will be a second tier side in the semi-final of the FA cup in consecutive seasons. When was the last time that was achieved and by whom? Snowball?

I doubt it was him tbf

Pretty happy with the draw as not only is it winnable but it will provide many LOLz as people froth at the mouth about Pards

Everton v Chelsea is virtually nailed on for the Monday night game as Chelsea have their CL game on the Wed. L. Irish are at home on the Saturday and I really can't see us being the Friday night game....especially when Shrewsbury get through tomorrow!!

So Friday or Sunday for us then!

According to this wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FA_Cup_semi-finals
It's never happened, we would be the first.
