Come in Number 8! (FA Cup Quarter Final Draw)
The Clarets will be in the hat for the FA Cup quarter-final draw, which will be live on ITV at around 6.30pm today following the Derby County v Manchester United game..
Of course we still have quite a bit to do before we know for definite whether we will have reached the FA Cup Quarter Final.
There is still the little matter of who we will play in the 5th round with Arsenal playing Cardiff in their 4th round replay at the Emirates tomorrow night.
The majority of Clarets fans will be hoping for a Gunners victory which would set us up nicely for a juicy and finacially rewarding game at the Emirates on the weekend of Saturday, March 7 or Sunday, March 8th, 2009.
On the other hand, Clarets will have to drag themselves to Ninian Park on the night of Wednesday, February 25, 2009 should the Bluebirds progress to the 5th round.
Nevertheless, we are still in the hat so watch out for Ball Number 8, the number we share with Arsenal & Cardiff
The full list of numbers are as follows:
1 Sheffield United or Hull City
3 West Ham United or Middlesbrough
4 Blackburn Rovers or Coventry City
5 Derby County or Manchester United
6 Swansea City or Fulham
7 Everton or Aston Villa
8 Cardiff City or Arsenal or Burnley
So then beat Arsenal at the Emirates and then Manchester United at Turf Moor? Simples!!
