6 League One teams left in the draw for the 4th Round of the FA Cup with Colchester, Peterborough, Walsall and Shrewsbury being joined by either Bradford or Bury in the 4th Round proper.

Who do you want then? For me, i'd like the easiest draw possible at home (Eastleigh/Bolton, Oxford, Carlisle/Yeovil, Colchester, Shrewsbury) or a one of the big boys at home (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Man United). I can't make it back to the UK to go to the game so would prefer if we got a TV game, and being away to one of the big boys makes that unlikely.

For some reason, I feel like we'll get West Brom, Palace or Reading away.

1 Watford
2 West Bromwich Albion or Bristol City
3 West Ham United
4 Derby County
5 Exeter City or Liverpool
6 Tottenham Hotspur or Leicester City
7 Colchester United
8 Peterborough United
9 Northampton Town or Milton Keynes Dons
10 Arsenal
11 Newport County or Blackburn Rovers
12 Ipswich Town or Portsmouth
13 AFC Bournemouth
14 Wycombe Wanderers or Aston Villa
15 Sheffield Wednesday
16 Oxford United
17 Walsall
18 Bury or Bradford City

19 Manchester United
20 Everton
21 Crystal Palace
22 Eastleigh or Bolton Wanderers
23 Nottingham Forest
24 Carlisle United or Yeovil Town
25 Chelsea
26 Stoke City
27 Leeds United
28 Shrewsbury Town
29 Huddersfield Town or Reading
30 Burnley
31 Manchester City
32 Hull City

Agreed T.A we are as good as out the competition and the replay will be a huge waste of time and little more than a formality for the home side.

Tottenham or Leicester at home. Can't complain either way really, but Tottenham is SO much better than Leicester. Really hope they win the replay, but I feel like they won't.

The stadium is miles from the station. Drink in the town and then taxi up.
Ta.....


Capacity wise what we looking at? New ground for our lot so should be a sell out.

Not the best draw in the world with it being away plus we always get the baggies and we have played bristol recently. But still could have been worse and I fancy us against anyone at the moment.

You'll get the North Stand behind the goal, which holds around 1,800, but has been reduced to 1,600 for some of the bigger games recently (the front few rows netted off for some reason). You should get the full allocation. It's always freezing cold as the ground is right on the outskirts of town. If you're lucky you'll have the sun shining in your eyes for the first half, otherwise there will be a howling gale in your face!

Ground is about 2 miles from the station, if you fancy the walk there are a lot of pubs en route, but not sure on them letting away fans in. Closer to the ground is the Brooklands pub, which is just the other side of the traffic island (5-10 minute walk) which usually lets you park for £5. Further into a housing estate in the other direction is the Charles Darwin (10-15 minute walk) which lets away fans in and has free parking. For any drivers DON'T park in the housing estates as wardens patrol the area after kick off!!

Looking forward to this one, not seen Town play Wednesday before. Only the third time we've been drawn at home in the FA Cup since the move to the new ground in 2007, joining illustrious company of Staines Town and Rotherham!

Literally the worst draw possible.

This will be 3 times in the past 8 years we will have got West Brom away in the FA Cup if they win. And no offence to you Bristol City fans, but the prospect of playing a non glamorous team in the league above, miles away with no chance of it being on tv isn't particularly exciting either!

Sure we only got about 1500 odd 1st time we played there a few years back which sold out as quick as could do im sure you have the figure pal. Its a decent drink in the town centre infact more than decent. Only downside is trying to get back after its a fucking joke trying to get a cab.
