As a premiership club - this is now completely different. Previously I wanted a big tie - Now i want a home game against a lower league team - see how far we can get.

Think I do too, we have enough playing the big guns in the Prem League now

Last 4 fixtures missing off this list, I reckon: Staines Town v Millwall Cambridge United v York City Bath City v Forest Green Rovers Port Vale v Huddersfield Town Wouldn't mind seeing Clarets up against Cambs Utd again - I saw them at the Abbey Stadium in '94(?) when David Eyres played a blinder. Accy Stanley would have a bit of atmosphere, though! Nice to avoid the big guns - save them for the last 8.

Plymouth away would suit me in terms of travel and almost certainly getting a ticket! Emotionally, I wouldn't mind an early chance to level things up against R***rs... So, come in number 5: your time is up!

Would you mind any of that lot away 8c8? Not sure I would want to play em at their place! They would be up for it although Blackburn could be a different dynamic. Wouldn't mind PNE/'Pool at home though, the look on their faces when they see the difference that 'Fortress Turf Moor' could now have would be priceless!

Yep I wouldn't mind away either although maybe I should through Accrington Stanley into the hat as well, now that would be interesting if we played our reserves Home would be Away and Away would be Home

I don't know why but I fear playing one of the clubs from the lower leagues below the Championship or even non-league, especially away. Banana skins and all that and no motivation! I remember losing 1-0 at home to non-League Wimbledon as they were then in the 70s, hiding to nothing

To be honest I would love a local derby more chance off me getting on but I went with the league only matters category in the Poll! maybe just me it would be nice to have a cup run but survival in the Premiership has to come above the fa cup for so many reasons! maybe we can do both who knows? But survival in the Premiership is a must in my opinion! you only need to look at Preston,Reading and Sheffield Utd our play-off contenders last season, just glad we made it! hopefully we will still be here?

Looking at the accounts from last year and the reported loss of 11 plus million, it looks like it was vital for us that we got promotion. I know a handful of teams that were close to financial dire straits last season in the Championship including Preston and we would have been one of them were it not for the Cup runs/promotion. Getting up couldn't have come at a better time but staying up will now be crucial to seeing a lot of the plans come to fruition eg buying back the Turf/Ground improvements/Further squad building. Gates and mechandising are helping
