Man City Await Rovers or Arsenal

Man City Await Rovers or Arsenal

Blackburn Rovers and Arsenal replay their fifth round FA Cup tie a week Wednesday, the reward for whoever comes through this tie will be a home match with Manchester City in the Quarter Finals.

The draw in full reads as follows:

Middlesbrough or West Bromwich Albion v Manchester United or Reading
Arsenal or Blackburn Rovers v Manchester City
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
Plymouth Argyle v Watford


Manchester City will prove a tough opponent but both Arsenal and Rovers would fancy their chances of overcoming City in the Quarter Finals so the Semi Finals at the very least remains very much a possibility for either then from there who knows what could happen!

The tie of the round has to be Chelsea verses Tottenham; Chelsea again gain a home tie but Tottenham will prove worthy opponents providing the right side turns up on the day. Plymouth and Watford must be running their hands together but with home advantage despite being a Championship side Ian Holloway's side will be very confident of making the Semi Finals...

It was looking very much as if Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United could all make their ways into the semi final with two of the big four then playing out the final but if Reading and more importanly Rovers have good days in the replays Arsenal and United could go crashing out!?!? Then IF Spurs have one of their better days who knows, maybe they'll beat Chelsea then the cup could literally be anyones!!!

Lot of "ifs" there Mr!!! Maybe you could just stand 11 players in front of your goal mouth and then claim a 0-0 draw as a victory hahaha

That's why I put a BIG if at the very beginning scooch, if puts emphasis on the "if" funnily enough... That was sarcasim. No harm in pointing out if, ands or buts though is there. We parked the bus that's for sure but am I bothered, not in the slightest we'd not have been in today's draw if we hadn't.

It would appear so Mikey!! On the issue of the draw...this should provide the lads with that extra impetus to go out there and beat the Gunners. A decent draw.
