Come in Number 11-FA Cup 5th Round Draw Details

The Clarets await to see who they could face in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.

We are still in the hat but we have the little matter of defeating WBA at home in the FA Cup 4th Round replay first.

The draw for the 5th round will be made tonight about 6:15 pm and will be covered on ITV. You need to look out for the Burnley/West Brom ball which will be number 11.

We could be playing Manchester United if Ball Number 2 comes out or one of the big Merseyside teams with Liverpool/Everton claiming Ball Number 1.

Would this be a good time to play Blackburn Rovers if they can beat Sunderland in their replay? Watch out for Ball Number 4!

The 5th round matches will be played on Saturday 14th February.

Of couse we have not yet beaten West Brom in our replay provisionally set for the night of Tuesday 3rd February. That date still needs to be confirmed and we were down to play Coventry at Turf Moor in the Championship that night.

If we lose to the Baggies we will still have a game on the 14th February. Wolves were knocked out of the FA Cup yesterday losing 2-1 at home to Middlesbrough so our original fixture against the current League leaders at Turf Moor scheduled for that date would now go ahead instead.

I quite like the idea of playing Blackburn you know! They would tremble at our feet I reckon

TMP is absolutely right - we need to beat The Baggies first but a possible game against Rovers would be a great incentive. Mind you, they have to beat Sunderland at home first and that's not guaranteed.

The new found optimism amongst all Clarets is great!

For me, a winnable game at home is preferable: Coventry, for example. After that, a Premiership side at home - maybe Everton if they beat Liverpool (?!) Finally, a massive pay day away: Chelsea or Manchester United or Newcastle being obvious ones. (The latter of those three could even be classed as "winnable" (?!)) The one thing we do not want is a Swansea / Watford away - that would be the worst. Slightly less disappointing would be a Fulham / Middlesbrough type away game. I'd love a new ground in terms of watching Burnley! Oh, and beating the Baggies might help!!!! :-)
