Lowest ranked team left in the competition away from home please.

But as per, we'll get a L1 side at home and go out in dismal fashion. Yey.

Wouldn't playing a L1 team be better than a conference team for the chances of progression?

Someone we've got a chance of beating





Port Vale away!!!!!!


In all seriousness FC United home or away would be fun. Some one like Salford away to get on TV. Altrincham away or Northwich Vic's away if they get through a replay plus another tie.

More than probably get someone like Peterborough at home and get smashed.

We're officially the highest ranked team in the FA Cup. I wonder when we'll next be able to say that!

I can't go to the game if it's on the saturday so I'd prefer a decent tie and the game moved to the friday or sunday. Maidstone is the obvious local interest one, but any home tie would be welcome.

Nowt to do with progession. Just want to go to a small non-league ground. It's what the FA Cup is all about, not playing a league club.

And I can catagorically tell you no, playing a L1 side wouldn't give us a better chance at progression. If we play some part time non-league minnow, we'll have found our level and might have half a chance at getting through.

I like the idea of Maidstone at home, but then I remember Dover.....and Brackley......and Burscough. If we lost to Maidstone, the ex-Squatters would never let us forget it.

Thing is, we're gonna end up playing them sooner or later. Would prefer it to be when we're actually good. The 3 games you mention were all in the depths of desperately poor runs of results.

Hope there's a big attendence for a certain fans sanity.

Away end looks odd though.

Surely that's the last team you want to play? Playing non league teams away is a hiding to nothing. If vale win its expected if you lose u have to drive a different way to work !

Not really as I don't know anyone there and it's like today a rare easy game to get to! I enjoy going to non league grounds you wouldn't normally get to go such as Shortwood a couple of years ago. (Not Chasetown as much though!)

I watched you at shortwood on bt sports. Handled it well..but it always amazes me what a leveller the fa cup is. It's always closer than it should be. Now we are more of an established league club I'm sure we will feel that in full effect. It's bloody nervous

I find it nice that we are their cup final and they make a big effort, plus you get a huge welcome rather than a load of morons wanting a scrap like most league clubs when you visit. Shortwood was weird though as I've never been to watch Vale unsegregated and it was up a steep hill in the middle of nowhere that you took a dirt track too! Had to park two miles away and get a special shuttle bus to get up there! Novelty factor was good!

Heard there was a sell out crowd to see one legend Stuart McCall - imagine having a player of that calibre playing at your club, Tommy? Mind you, you did have Phil Parkinson, of whom ventured into VP and made a name from himself. You won the FA Cup twice, though - who am I to mock. Most tinpot clubs would kill for your 3,000 average crowds.

Honest.

FC United and Salford away would probably guarantee TV coverage I suppose. Huge banana skin though!

I'm willing to take the embarrassment of being beaten by 2 clear goals without having a shot on target for the sake of a novelty away day at a ground in the depths of non-league.

I would take that too although I fully expect to be drawn away to Crewe.

Hope Chorley get Blackpool.

Or Wigan. Been a while since Wigan played their rivals.

Hah, would love to see Gillingham v Maidstone, if only to see Kent Police lose their collective marbles.

As for us, I couldn't care less. Anyone away I suppose.

I would like Worcester if they are still in it which I think they are so we can put right what happened last season under that incompetant fool Pressley.
I'd like someone in the East of the country if not Worcester, hopefully non league as well
