A game we ought to win so probably won't...

From the BBC:

Before the main draw there was a rehearsal, with some interesting pairings. Here are some highlights:

Accrington Stanley v Arsenal
Liverpool v Reading
Rochdale v Everton
Huddersfield v Chelsea
Blackpool v West Ham
Manchester United v Watford

Should have stuck with that (well we've beaten Man U once already..)

According to our Twitter feed, we drew Manure in the "rehearsal" draw.

West Ham would be a good one, to see how many Blackpool would turn out. Buzzing for the hypothetical Stanley draw too.

Seems to be no reason why Man U wont be on TV for the 1000th time in a row (unfortunately)

Looking forward to Pep being asked about "the magic of the FA Cup" and him screwing up his face and saying "lots of countries have great cups" and then giving his players lots of drugs.

Thank God they do these rehearsals so we don't see such basic errors in the actual draw.

Which joker slipped in a "Manure" ball? That's not even the name of a football team.

Liverpool have confirmed our game on Sunday has sold out :£hopefully some extra funds for our promotion push, any chance of Liverpool donating us all the ticket sales income like they did with someone a few years back? :69:

8500 green army making the trip, which for 600 miles round trip on a Sunday is pretty impressive even if it is our cup final:bg1:

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

Add Jesus to that and you'll score even more buckets full of goals. Shore up that defense a bit and City will be formidable.

Add Jesus to any team and it'd be a formidable team. Cheating somewhat though, but then I don't think the rulebook states anything against playing deities.

We have one who looks like Jesus. Though when we shout Jesus, it's usually cause he's given the ball away again....

Something about being scared of crosses..?

There's a lot of expectation on the kid though. Hope he settles in well but not expecting him to hit the ground running completely.

Your "mancrush" on this Jesus fellow is worse than my Schweinsteiger infatuation love.
