Well that should be an easy route to Round 5 but not very inspirational!

dull dull draw? Cheer up Phil! As you said in your first post this should enable us to progress to round 5 ( If we play properly) - Another nice draw there, and who knows. We may get another trip to Wembley!

Excellent draw - Burton at home was what I was hoping for and that's what we got. Good prize money for progressing and a great chance now of the last 8 let alone the last 16. A new manager didn't need a cup defeat early in his tenure!

Naw yet another boring.no atmosphere sub-10,000 game at Turf Moor. FA Cup really doesn't have the appeal to me anymore unless we are playing a big gun or a local derby

Great draw, chance to try out some new tactics with the current players and progress into the next round. Getting beat at Southampton away or Torquay away, now that would have been a bad draw for me! Wigan away, local Derby would have hated that too.

Wow. I think I would have preferred a draw against a "big club" away from home, getting beaten and missing out on the chance of another game and the prize money. I'm with you, right, Phil?

Oops...missed my smiley. This is a good draw: exactly as most people above have said. Yes, we will look a bit silly if we lose. However, play to even 75% and we will win without too much trouble. PV were in 4th place; BA are in 19th, although they HAVE beaten league leaders Chesterfield twice. Before we drew them, watching the highlights yesterday, I thought that Boro's inability to score from one of about a dozen good chances, plus a wrong offside call cost them yesterday, and BA got lucky.

Suits me, a comfortable win followed by a home tie against Sheff Wed. Then some real giant killing. Just think, a good new manager, FA Cup Semi's, and promotion. Roll on you Clarets.
