The draw is at noon on Saturday on Sky Sports.

Arsenal
Blackburn
Cardiff
Chelsea
Crystal Palace
Liverpool
Man Utd
Man City

I'd take anyone at home bar City and probably Liverpool as they play a strong team as they aren't in Europe. I'd love Cardiff or Palace at home obviously but we'd take most other teams at home and give it a real go.

Knowing us we'll get Chelsea, Arsenal or City away :lol: We've had 3 home ties this season so our luck will probably run out!

Who do you want your side to get and who do you want to avoid?

Cardiff or Blackburn at home please. Have a feeling we would surprise them teams at our ground. I doubt we will be capable of keeping up our fine league form so a cup run would be great.

Palace or Cardiff please. Can't complain if we get a bigger side though with it being the quarters.

A home tie against one of the big boys would be nice. Not United, save them for the semis.

I hope Blackburn get an away tie to one of the big boys, I have nothing against Blackburn it would just soften the blow of our defeat knowing we would have gone out next round anyway.

Yea, like last time when Garry Cook promised your fans you'd get to the final.The quarter final is the ideal time to go out in my opinion. Give your youngsters a few games then bail out before those annoying 2 legged semi finals just as the season starts to get serious in the new year

Would prefer one of the big teams at our place. Strange as it sounds, I don't particularly want to play a two legged semi that we'll most likely lose if it has a negative effect on our league performance.

It will take them 20yrs to live this one down, the 5-1 spanking we gave them at main rd in the 90's is only just dying down :lol:

It's forgotten already as far as I'm concerned. I'd happily lose 12-0 at the Council House and lose 20-0 at home to Liverpool if it means we win the league. The defeat did us a favour, or, hopefully it will. We've been chancing our luck for years now and been papering over the cracks but it seems to have opened Sir Alex's eyes to the unacceptable showings from some players that aren't good enough anymore. I hope the rumours of him dropping Anderson, Ferdinand and Evra are true and I hope that their replacements come in and do a good job. This wouldn't be in doubt years ago when consistently bad displays were punished severely and usually ended with the manager booting said players out of the club and putting the team before any one player's ego and without a care for wht they've done at the club in the past. I want a return to those days. I want to see angry Fergie that isn't afraid to upset big egos. I want to see the Ferguson that got rid of Ince, Kanchelskis and Hughes and replaced them with our academy players despite being written off for doing it and despite being criticised for backing Cantona over his ban. I miss that Ferguson so much

All eyes on number 2, RG :drink: We'll draw City though, I can see it. We 100% definitely won't get Cardiff or Palace anyway.

Fucking hell, hurry the fuck up Sky so we can draw Manchester United or Man City in the quarters and piss over them. Ta. :) EDIT: Why does Man 'U' get fully named but not the Manchester bit in Man City?

My dad txt me saying "United will get Palace, they weigh the balls so they know who united are being drawn with" :lol:. Knew they'd get Palace myself though, I don't know why. Glad we avoided City, Arsenal, Chelsea, United and Liverpool though but still, Cardiff away won't be an easy game at all.

Home to Blackburn then. Get ready to be dicked Chris, Josh and Alicia. You can shove your Goodwillie and your Samba up your arse. :) On a serious note, we'll most likely go out, but this is doable.

We've been drawn away in every round. Chelsea at the Bridge is going to be very tough, but if we're going to win the tournament we're going to have to beat the best teams anyway.

I don't know mate, I think any team left away in that draw would have been tough, including yourselves and Palace. You could both definitely do us at home at the moment, but I have alot more confidence in the cup than I do in the league, so let's hope that continues.Would be nice to see Chelsea and City get eliminated, as I don't fear anyone else left and think on our day we could beat anyone else. Would be mint if palace knocked out United as well. Liverpool and Arsenal are better than us but we could definitely beat them. In saying that, we need to win this round first, which is going to be tough. Cardiff away is not easy, i'd have much prefered at it home.

Not so good. A home tie though, and we've got a lot better chance than if it was a two-legged semi final, in my opinion.

A mate who is a Manchester United fan reckons they've almost sold out already at £44 a ticket. We haven't even been given our ticket allocation! It's going to be mental to try and get a ticket for this game. May have to surrender a large chunk of my student loan.

It really pisses me off when someone is so jammy that they will make the semi final without playing any Premiership opposition.
