We always get the Premierleague teams. It'd be nice, if we got a nice easy game against the lower opposition.

Should be a great game, provided it is Spurs we play. We'll win though.

Why are the Bindippers, Le'Arse-Anal & Renties always so lucky,getting drawn against lousy oppsositions from the lower tiers? :confused: And once again, United get drawn against a Premiership side like Reading or Tottenham Hotspur!
It's fixed, FFS! :mad:

I'd rather play the "big guns" now and knock them out than see them all meet in the semi's. Anyway, we could get Havant at OT next round ;) Dream on!

Oldham V Huddersfield tie of the round
Andy Ritchie going back to Oldham
If West Ham beat Man City then Sheffield United v West Ham should be quite tasty after what happened last season.

I can't believe we've drawn Prem opposition again. At least we're at home though.

Liverpool may as well have a bye to the 5th round, Chelsea should beat Wigan and Newcastle's hopes of winning a trophy to save their season are over.

Chances of a big 4 semi-final line up anyone?

United have played Spurs 163 times.
United have won 75 Spurs have won 46 Drawn 42
There have been 257 goals for United, 219 for Spurs

In all cup games United have played 21 games against Spurs
United have lost 11 of these. 5 wins and 5 draws.
United have scored 11 goals and conceded 26.

The last time Spurs beat us was in 2001 on 19th May (3-1).


United have played Reading 15 times, winning 7 drawing 7 and losing 1
Goals For 28 Against 15. Uniteds biggest win v Reading was 4-1 in 1955 in an FA Cup 3rd Rd Replay.

As you can clearly see, in the FA Cup, even at home, historically we are the underdog!!

Fixed as per usual.....
When's the last time we didnt get a Premiership team?
Its a home tie again so the Glaziers will be licking their fingers.
I just feel sorry for the fans that HAVE to fork out for it.
At least it should be an attacking and exciting game as Reading and Spurs couldnt give a hoot about defending.
prediction-home win.

Reading will not be an "easier" match as one or two think. They have been as stubborn as hell against us. We have only won 50% of our games against them.

A very good draw for us.

If you want to win the FA Cup you've got to beat the best and playing against a quality team will keep the players tuned in and concentrated.

I am ok with it, but some may think this is racially motivated.

Spot on. Profound wisdom and understanding. Absolutely brilliant.:eek: ;) :D

To elaborate on my compliments lest K4T finds it hard to accept himself, I believe if we honestly think we are the best in the land, we must be prepared to beat any team that comes our way. Mentally hoping and praying we can avoid a certain team or teams is a loser's mentality; half the battle lost already.

I'm afraid I'm a loser. :p

I always hope someone else will do the hard work for us and knock out our main rivals to give us easy passage to the final! :D
