It's West Ham Away in FA Cup

It's West Ham Away in FA Cup

We will play West Ham away in the FA Cup 5th Round.

The fifth round will take place on the weekend of the 19th and 20th February with our fixture most likely played on the Saturday

The full draw for the last sixteen was as follows:

Fulham or Tottenham v Bolton or Wigan

Man Utd v Crawley

Everton or Chelsea v Reading

Leyton Orient v Arsenal

Birmingham City v Sheff Wed

Stoke City v Brighton

Notts County or Man City v Aston Villa

West Ham v Burnley

This means our scheduled game against Coventry in the Championship at Turf Moor on Saturday 19th February will now need to be raarranged.

Bad draw - potential for TV though.

Just hope they are still useless come the time we play them.

At least it's a proper game with some decent opposition. We could win this one or at least bring em to Turf Moor for a replay

Unfortunatley I don't think we will make the TV, Man Utd V Crawley definatley will be, so will Leyton Orient V Arsenal and I expect the All premier league game of Fulham, Tottenham, Bolton or Wigan will get on. After that Everton or Chelsea V Reading will be the one I think. However I do think this game i very winnable, we get on a run with some good form and I can see us winning! Then one game away from Wembley!

West Ham have strengthened their squad and will be tough opposition, but if we progress so will we. Should be a good test of our abilities although we must put promotion top prority.

Good one for me. No extra expense required for travel as it is covered by my monthly travelcard and can get the tube direct from Kew Gardens. Will be a tough game but we have nothing to lose so it should be a cracking cup tie. I remember going there last year and seeing us play twenty minutes of the most swash-buckling football I have ever seen. Only problem was we were 5-0 down before we started playing.

A tricky tie indeed,anybody know if Robbie Keane will be cup-tied? I get married on the 18th so I doubt I would get to see it even if we were on tv, hopefully we can string some away wins before then starting on Tuesday UTC

Might be tempted to go to this. Quite like the atmosphere around the ground, not to mention the traditional Cockney fayre. Pie,peas and liquor etc although not into eels!
