Not very exciting. Hopefully, there's no cup upset and we win and get somebody big in next round.

And I can't believe Serge Pizzaro (or whatever his second name is) and Noel Gallagher pulled out their own clubs to play each other! Leicester V Man City. That was outrageous!

What were the odds for that? Not a good draw for us to be honest but hopefully one that will see us in next round without having to suffer any banana skin

An ok draw it will mean Laws can play some players who are normally on the bench, and we should win ofcourse.

I dont think its a bad draw at all. What would have been a good draw? Having played all the big teams in the last couple of years surely this season it is about getting as far as we possibly can. The glory of playing a 'big' team is not as strong as in previous seasons. A few kind draws and ties like Utd - Lpool being drawn, You never know . . . I think this is the sort of draw we should have been looking for - Just hope we dont muck it up.

On a personal level, Dale would have preferred a minnow away to a ground I had not been to before or at home a local derby a la Blackburn,Bolton(again) or PNE. To hear this Board sometimes, I am not convinced a big money spinner against the likes of Man U etc re TV rights/gate etc is no longer one of their hopes. Not sure about Cup competitions per se to be honest, think our focus should be on promotion without any distractions especially if we have to get involved with replays

Just win it. Winning becomes a habit. Just the habit we need to get.

Agree regarding a personal level TMP - I would have liked an away tie at a new ground. But I also believe that with a couple of good draws which, with no offence to Vale, this is the sort we should be looking for - we could end up in the QF or further, then who knows what could happen.

I think its a good draw. Win it and then its only 3 more wins to get to Wembley semi. As for the odds of serge and noel pulling out their own teams against each other its 1 in 126

Won't lose much sleep if we lose it and would rather reserve our energy and concentration for the promotion push rather than run the risk of injuries and suspensions in a cup competition that is unlikely to lead to Wembley. Reminds me of our promotion season when games against QPR and West Brom with replays were seen as a bind rather than an opportunity
