Assuming the favourites win the remaining ties, we’ll have a 40% chance of being drawn against lower tier opposition. The odds may of course improve. At quarterfinal stage I don’t think you can grumble about any draw, but for the 5th round, any non-PL side would do nicely, home or away.

We play this midweek after the Carabao Cup Final if we get through against Villa.

 

As usual i would prefer the weakest team left in the competition at home. It would be wonderful if we're plain sailing in the league with a Carabao Cup win behind us and then in the position to rotate players in the league to go all out for the FA Cup. 

Agree entirely, although this is tempting fate. The thing is that Rodgers clearly wants to win everything, which is fine by us, after years of having managers who didn't give a flying one about any of the cups.

There was an official "winter break"?

 

When was that supposed to be?

Feb. If you check the fixtures all teams get 2 weeks free. Theres a weekend with only 5 games in the premier league on consecutive weeks.

 

Meaning you either play on the weekend of the 8th then not again until the 22nd or play on the 1st and not again until the 15th

 

We play norwich or the cup final then don't play until we meet wolves we actually end up hard done too because our game at wolves is the friday. Fine if we play Norwich we get our 2 weeks. If we make the cup final our break is shorter than everyone else.

Nope due to the so called winter break the games are midweek after the league cup final.


Unless I am giving @Claudiofox more credit than due, I believe his comment was meant to be humorous.. lol

Don't forget they play home games at Birmingham

Yes I know but that means a fair few would be getting on at nuneaton based on how many got off there after todays game. Bumped into a few on our way back from london at the station.
