Fa cup draw

Burnley at home,
The dippers get to play each other
When will someone at the FA take a reality pill and start seeding teams.

It seems like the poor old rags got yet another difficult draw. Nothing ever changes: Manchester United v Derby County

But, that wouldn't work at all, I mean how would they pit us away against Premier Leauge opposition whilst they give the rags a home draw against the likes of Preston North End?

We were probably meant to get Everton instead of Liverpool, but they messed up the hot balls. With the FA it's a matter of corruption fighting incompetence & sometimes the later wins.

why seed teams it seems every competition they devalue it by seeding teams. Let the luck of the draw determine the outcome of cup competitions that is the  magic of the cup. it gets so monotonous when the competitions are so regimented that you can guarantee pretty much the outcome of of games.

I used to love it when 2 big powers were drawn together meaning room for an extra small team in the next round.

From twitter:

“It's now been over 6 years since City drew a team below the Championship. That’s 26 FA Cup draws, 23 League Cup draws, 19 Championship teams, and 30 Premier League teams. Chelsea, United, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool all drew a team below the Championship just last season alone.”

Fairness aside why does it matter? Because if like the other sides we drew lower league opponents then we could give youth far more of a chance with little or no risk.

It's crazy, isn't it?  The last team we drew from a lower division was Scunthorpe, if I recall correctly.  And yet you try and tell people this and they don't believe you.  In fact, before this season, wasn't it three years since we last had a home draw as well?

The Bbc are saying that this is the first time since 2005 that a rag fa cup game wont be shown live on tv.

Proves the absolute media bias towards that despicable club
