The draw for this season’s FA Cup Quarter Finals take place shortly. I hope, nay pray that Manchester United and Chelsea get drawn together. In fact, my ideal draw would probably be:
Man Utd V Chelsea
Middlesbrough or Sheffield United V West Brom
Bristol Rovers V Portsmouth
Barnsley V Cardiff
Not ideal for Barnsley fans granted, but I think that gives them a good chance of progressing. Let’s see what really happens…
UPDATED: Well what were the odds of that? The actual draw has kept the “big two” apart, but at least there’s guaranteed to be a Football League club in the semi-finals.
Sheff Utd or Middlesbrough V Cardiff
Man Utd V Portsmouth
Bristol Rovers V West Brom
Barnsley V Chelsea
The matches are to be played on the weekend of 8th/9th March 2008.
