Farce. Chelsea effectively have a by to the quarter final now. 

The fa cup has been made a laughing stock.

Ours is a great draw. We simply have to be in the last 8 now and if it's Coventry, you've got a very likely win but one that will still feel very satisfying. I hope we slaughter them.

Fingers crossed it's Coventry. Football's about the sting.

I fully expect Klopp to be blowing us off if they get through though... probably not worth his time turning up

He will field his strongest 11, he can field B teams and so on against Shrewsbury Town.

Anyone fancy looking up the last time Man City drew another Premier League side before the quarters/semis of a domestic cup? xD

I recall us winning 5-1 in the 5th round in the 2015-16 season, but if memory serves me well City fielded mixed/kids team.

The next year they played at Old Trafford in the League Cup lost 1-0 

That is about it for the last five years, not including finals or semi's.

Found this article from Oct 19th, seems as though draws in general have been very favourable to City across the board.. 

Since the beginning of the 2018/19 season, Lady Luck has seemingly been kind to the Citizens, who have arguably been fortuitous with the draws in all three competitions they have taken part in since. While they ultimately were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage last season, the club have avoided facing top-six opposition in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, while equally avoiding European heavyweights in the Champions League.

 

This was highlighted by Telegraph journalist Matt Law, who pointed to the sides City have faced since the start of last season, labelling their run as 'favourable'. Hard to argue when you look at the names...

 

In the Champions League: Lyon, Hoffenheim, Shakhtar (twice), Schalke, Tottenham, Dinamo Zagreb, Atalanta. 

 

In the FA Cup: Rotherham, Burnley, Newport, Swansea, Brighton, Watford.

 

And in the glorious Carabao: Oxford, Fulham, Leicester, Burton Albion, Chelsea, PNE, Southampton and Oxford.

Would love Northampton to knock Derby out.

Cannot be arsed with everything being about Wayne Rooney next round otherwise.

Same. 

It's 100% guaranteed that's all that will be spoken about.

Just seen the highlights and I thought I would have a look in here as I knew you would be in this thread, Newcastle had a 14-year wait to get into the 5th round of the cup so congratulations, I bet you were pissing your pants though when it went into e/t. :D
