The FA Cup draw is live on the One Show at 19:20. Just in case you need an update. Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham are out after losing at home to "inferior" teams.

1. Crystal Palace
2. Cambridge United or Manchester United
3. Blackburn Rovers
4. Bradford City
5. Derby County
6. Preston North End or Sheffield United
7. West Bromwich Albion
8. Aston Villa
9. Reading
10. Liverpool or Bolton Wanderers
11. Leicester City
12. Arsenal
13. Rochdale or Stoke City
14. Sunderland or Fulham
15. West Ham United
16. Middlesbrough


For the record, I don't want Bradford. Would love a home tie against Reading though.

The only ties that would make me care whether we beat Sheff Utd are..

Arsenal H/A
Utd/Cambridge H/A (unless Cambridge, I don't want them away.)
Blackburn A
Villa A
Liverpool/Bolton A

That's it really.

As long as we avoid Arsenal and Man Utd (if they can beat the mighty Cambridge) I'll be happy.

Bets tie would be Reading, Bradford or Blackburn at home.

Another disappointing banana skin of a draw for Man United should we prevail against Cambridge. Nothing to gain out of it and absoltuely everything to lose (again)

Magic of the FA Cup exhausted in 24 hours over the weekend, then. Another largely uninspiring draw.

Decent draw for Bradford. Home against Premier League is all they could have asked for and it will be packed to the rafters I am sure!

Preston/Sheffield Utd vs Man Utd has potential to be a cracking cup tie.

If United avoid an upset against Cambridge, of course.

Also good as a neutral to see a few all premier league ties, gives a couple of Championship sides a real chance of making the final.

It was incredible, so many possible good games yet they probably managed to draw the worst possible games.

So Preston or Sheffield United for us then. Not massively inspiring - one we lost to last season and one a good 4.5 hours away. Still we should be able to make it awkward for either and might nick it if we "do a Bradford" and play out of our skins.

Of course all of that is completely irrelevant as we're going to get spanked at Old Trafford next Tuesday night. Not that I care massively, this year's FA Cup had been rather fruitful.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

I don't think many people looked at City v Boro, Chelsea v Bradford and Calbridge v Man U and thought 'yep.. Some definate cup shocks there'

TV games include West Brom v West Ham and Villa v Leicester. What the hell is wrong with the people who pick them?

Don't knock it, they've also picked out tie (naturally as Man U are one of the four sides in the tie). If by somehow we get through, I can't wait to see the viewing figures for Preston against Cambridge. :)

Or the viewing figures for Crystal Palace vs Bolton

At least if we get through next round they are forced to show an all Championship tie..

And of course we will be away as always if we get through.We haven't had a home tie in the FA Cup since we beat Sheffield United 4-0 in 2013.
