      Quickly scanning through that don't think I can see any Non-League v Non-League fixtures?

      Wonder if we will get through to the 3rd round without any non-league teams?

      EDIT: Kingstonian v Fylde are both non-league.

      Man City likely to face the winners of that.  At home.

      Hopefully a home draw for the 3rd round against an average-ish opponent. Be nice to pick a few tickets up without the usual sales nightmare

      Yes would be very very nice to avoid prem opposition in the first round of a competition for a change.

      I went to a few games at Kingstonian back in the day,not playing well at the moment but hopefull they get a shot at the big boys.If Wrexham win their replay they play Boston,both non league.Coventry V Ipswich in the 2nd round is weird to see,still think of  them,especially Ipswich as top division teams!

      Becoming a joke now, surely. Really don’t believe it’s a coincidence they keep getting such weak opposition, round after round in the cups.

      Where as we’ve got Bitters this year, Wolves last year, Bitters the year before. Had Chelsea in a cup last year, had Arsenal this year.

      That said, I guess the Bitters aren’t far off being lower league opposition.

      Since the fixtures are on the weekend, would like to see us make a full effort to win this competition this year. We can use the squad alright, but do not wish to see the 11-change and several U23 players thing for this. Let's go for it.

      just watched the 86 final against the blueshite its hard for younger Fans to understand how important the FA Cup was back then. I would love another final in May it will be a good warm up for the CL final

      Mental health awareness blitz.

      Not even funny when you realise how much this Tory government has exacerbated this. Having said that, at long last, the majority of mental health trusts received a funding boost last year, but it was like pissing in the wind after their budgets had been cut by over £100m in real terms since the Conservatives came to power and mental health funding is not ring-fenced and can be diverted to plug other gaps created by the unnecessary austerity forced upon this country by this shyster Tory government.

      He seems to always be a doubt for the next game but ends up playing.

      Regarding Wolves. Think their performance vs City and then vs us just completely drained them.

      We'll have to see, but I think we'll be too strong for them with or without him. Looking at his injury history, it seems he recovers quickly and doesn't get injured all that often.

      I think we'll get two wins.

      Wolves denied a perfectly good goal for hand ball even though it was ball to hand and the REF was happy but not VAR.

      It wasn't a perfectly good goal, otherwise it would have stood. Don't take that as saying I like the decision in this case because I don't. But that's the law, therefore the goal should be disallowed, so Wolves could win according to the laws of the game. Obviously they couldn't, but that's a different discussion.

      "Incidentally he's only lost a couple of balls in almost 40 years."

      My personal experience is that is the maximum. Perhaps Fred is different....

      Anybody watching today? I was going to check out Ovie Ejaria for REading but he's not in the team, same as last round. Watching a German match instead.

      I might try Herbie Kane with Hull City in the next match, they play Chelsea.

      I had a look at the millwall game,then coventry then Portsmouth least there were goals in that one.Gonna go with west ham v west brom for the second half,see how aggro it gets if the score holds up.

      Looks  like City are cruising, up 2-0 at half to Fulham, who had American Tim Ream sent off in the opening minutues.

      Personal  Note: In my soccer journo days I covered the American youth championships one year and Tim Ream was one of the main players for a championship team from St. Louis. Now he's probably getting close to retiring - getting old here...

      If this was professional wrestling, Liverpool would run out of the tunnel for the 2nd half to defend their smaller friends, winning in a 6-5 fightback.

      If I could be bothered I’d look back over the last couple of years and see how many half decent teams they’ve played in the 2 domestic cups. I’d be shocked if it’s more than 3.

      Last year in the 2 cups they didn't face Prem opposition until the finals, same this year apart from having Manure in the semi's of carabao Cup.

      Difference between that and the draws they get in Europe. No wonder they fold everytime they meet a half decent team.

      I had a look at the last five seasons of domestic draws for us and City, looking at home draws and which division the opponents were in. For the two-legged ties and finals, I've considered all of them as neutral.

      19/20

      Man City

      So far, City have had -

      7 matches

      42.8% home games

      42.8% Championship
      28.5% Premier League teams
      14.2% League One
      14.2% League Two

      Liverpool

      So far, we have had -

      5 matches

      60% home games

      60% Premier League
      40% League One

      18/19

      Man City

      Man City went further in the cups than we did, which skews this, but they got -

      11 matches

      45.4% home games

      54.5% Premier League
      18.1% Championship
      18.1% League One
      9.09% League Two

      Liverpool

      As we know, we got knocked out of both cups early, but we did go on to win something City will never win -

      2 matches

      50% home games

      100% Premier League

      17/18

      Man City

      8 matches

      25% home games

      50% Premier League
      37.5% Championship
      12.5% League One

      Liverpool

      3 matches

      66% home games

      100% Premier League

      16/17

      Man City

      7 matches

      14.2% home games

      85.7% Premier League
      14.2% Championship

      Liverpool

      7 matches

      57.1% home games

      57.1% Championship
      28.5% Premier League
      14.2% League Two

      15/16

      Man City

      8 matches

      25% home games

      100% Premier League

      Liverpool

      7 matches

      42.8% home games

      71.4% Premier League
      28.5% League Two

      Overall

      Adding up all of the above seasons -

      Man City

      Total matches - 41

      31.7% home games

      63.4% Premier League
      21.9% Championship
      9.75% League One
      4.87% League Two

      Liverpool

      Total matches - 24

      50% home games

      62.5% Premier League
      16.6% Championship
      8.3% League One
      12.5% League Two

      The above is skewed by a few things - City have played almost twice as many matches as we have and one of their seasons above they drew only Premier League teams, whilst we had the same in another season. It does look like they tend to get easier draws, but over five seasons, our overall totals are fairly similar. I'm not saying there's no corruption or that there can't be any, but I think it's just luck plus we tend to be biased against City - someone on another forum described them being drawn with Southampton as a bye, for example. I think some also underestimate smaller teams and assume City will automatically win. To be honest, it's the same accusations that were made against United in the 90s and the same made against us by Everton fans since 1892.

      In the League Cup they had Leicester in the QFs and in the FA Cup they had Burnley in the fourth round and Brighton in the semis.
