My god I'd love to see Solihull against Arsenal. The match would be played on just a strip of grass as wide as the goalposts.

the draw hasn't set this thread alight has it?
Pretty good draw for the non-league teams though

Tranmere or Southport v Tottenham
Wrexham or Newport v Leicester
Solihull Moors or Blackpool v Arsenal
Woking v Watford
Sheffield United v Barnet
Guiseley or Fleetwood v Wimbledon

You'd have to imagine most the league teams will step it up in the replay, knowing they'll be playing Premiership big guns.

Interesting game against Woking - will probably be on the TV.

We've played them in Pre-season friendlies over the past few seasons.

Hopefully we will play a strong side and not be complacent as naturally they will be very motivated to do well.

Sheffield Utd isn’t an amazing draw but it is against a famous club at a great stadium who we’ve never played before and there’s also the Darren Currie/Tony Currie connection.

Sheffield Utd fans don’t really seem to bother with cup games either so the atmosphere will be pretty dead.

A.F.C. Sudbury... and Orient. Ish.

‘Tis true. They scored nearly as many goals as they had fans when we went there in the cup a couple of years back. Bramall Lane isn’t a patch on Hillsborough either.

Yeah I preferred Hillsborough too, although that’s probably because we lost to an injury time own goal at Bramall Lane last time I was there. :(

Leicester at home and a big money-spinner on TV....but then I forget that we're Wrexham and that these things just don't happen to us.

We'll be getting a red card straight away and be chucking 200 grand away thank you very much. Bliss.

I don't think a side that used to get into Europe by winning its County Cup has too much to complain about...…...... :whistle:
That happened before I was born so I've not benefitted from any European nights. I do remember FC Halifax Town's creation quite well though.

Superb effort from Solihull who are minutes away from extra time at Blackpool.

402 Moors fans in a crowd of 1,441 there

Just been undone by a very soft penalty decision it seems.

Blackpool player went down under a slight touch via a high foot by the defender.
