Shit I forgot David O'Leary existed. Wonder what he's up to these days. Was he not a decent manager way back when?

Don't mean to be shallow but Alex Scott is incredibly good looking.
Crap draw all round.
Love David O Leary.

The luck Chel get in this competition is unbelievable...22 years since they were knocked out at 3rd round stage, prob only played PL side once in that run! I'd be I interested to learn how many PL sides they have played in the last 20 years in the cup?

At least that's another chance to play some youngsters and rotate.

If any one's got luck in this comp it's City and the draws to lower league opposition. We haven't draw to lower league team in 3+4 rounds since Plymouth Argyle 16-17.
So you haven't been drawn to lower league teams for the past 3-4 games? :(

Yeah I was just joking. Our luck is gone. Bring lucky LVG and his luck with draws and let someone else manage the side.

You have got Everton twice in the 3rd round in 3 years at home.

The easiest possible fixture for Liverpool.

One of Mike Dean's merseyside clubs he supports.

Either way, not a bad draw, could've been worse.

We just got slapped at Watford two weeks ago!

You're looking at it as an old school United fan, this is a new United, a shit midtable United, away at Watford is an immense challenge for this team.

We should have sacked off the FA Cup when we played Wolves the first time

Can you watch the game tonight? Can't seem to find any streams for it on the regular sites I use. Not going on tv here either.

Watford don’t give two shits about this. Their side has practically no first teamers

Look what happened as soon as we faced a top team in the league cup...
Yeah well you stay in as long as you can and hope we avoid City or Liverpool. Full strength we are decent anyway, but that's not happening this season, so we're reliant on good draws, which happens to someone every year. Dont forget that Wigan won the FA cup and got relegated in the same year. Shit happens. That's what we have to hold out for this season.

Hold out for a cup and relegation? Yes could happen

Agree! Sadly Wolves who loves to beat City is out and they get all the good cup draws.

Yeah but that is City who are miles ahead of us
But they take the cups so seriously so the likelihood is we'd have to beat them in the FA Cup as well

We're not a side that's ready to win trophies, priority should have been the league and try to be the best of the shit and scrape 4th place. Should have thrown the league cup when we went to Chelsea as well (albeit we'd of missed out on Rashford's goal of the season)

They took them seriously because their 2nd team is better than everyone’s first( bar pool)
