They may do. They looked good when I watched them last. We could rock up arrogantly and find we’re not the best team on the pitch. This could even happen if they field their b team. I hate it when it’s clear we see ourselves better than a lower league team, hardly put in a shift, and find our skills have been undone by their togetherness and work ethic. It’s disrespectful to them.

Aye... like we did against Stoke?

As comfortable as the win against Stoke was in the end, if Sam Vokes wasn't absolute pony and put away that easy chance at 0-0 it could've been a real struggle. I'd expect Brentford to be more clinical

  • Pick the last 8, see who's nearest.
  • Fulham or Burnley vs AFC Bournemouth or Crawley Town
  • Man Utd or Liverpool vs Stockport County or West Ham or Doncaster Rovers
  • Sheffield United or Plymouth Argyle vs Millwall or Bristol City
  • Chorley or Wolves vs Southampton or Shrewsbury Town or Arsenal
  • Barnsley or Norwich City vs Chelsea or Luton Town
  • Everton or Sheffield Wednesday vs Wycombe or Tottenham Hotspur
  • Swansea City or Nottingham Forest vs Cheltenham Town or Man City

Spurs

Man City

Leicester.

Barnsley

In that order.

Absolute classic on HYS ..... someone has just pointed out that for the sixth round, more than half the PL teams will have been eliminated this year. 😳

Imagine in the last 8 more than half of the 20 PL clubs being eliminated lol

Depends. We thought that last year and they played their B Team. They’re up for promotion again so might do the same? 

We've just had a good run in reaching the Carabao cup semi-finals against Spurs, beating 4 Prem clubs on the way, and that loss was our first one in 17 games, I think with this draw we will play a good mixture of the first team and B team players, You're right we are gunning for promotion again after falling at the last hurdle in the Final against Fulham therefore promotion has to be our top priority now, I still think we will give you a run whatever team we put out.

 

Should be a good match against two teams who like to play good to watch attacking football, Our lads will be up for it to try and reverse last years result, you never know we might just surprise you this time round, Cup games can produce some strange results as we all saw at the weekend!!

Cant complain from our perspective. The only downside is that apart from Man Utd and Liverpool the bigger teams have an easyish run.

 

Not really.

 

The toughest team in our path is Brighton.

Tottenham is Everton.

Arsenal is Southampton.

 

Man city and Chelsea only have the better Championship clubs to beat but I'm happy with the draw over all as we'll definitely see one "big six" club fall but most likely two. If we get to the QF then four of the seven being "big six" clubs is fair enough.

The game could be in doubt now, The breaking news is that our next two games 13th & 19th have just been postponed due to a outbreak of Covid-19 in our camp, so it's possible it might be rescheduled if it gets any worse, or they might make us play with what players we can put together, not satisfactory but understandable in these difficult times, if this gets any worse I can see ALL elite sport being suspended.

I agree,  As the national situation is getting more and more worrying, and the virus is beginning to infiltrate numerous  football clubs,  I think that it's approaching that moment when fixtures will have to be suspended.  Hope not.  As you say, this tie in particular looks intriguing.

Take it we'll play Brentford's B team then like Livepool played Villa's kids? Or do only the big 6 get a free pass? 

 

More importantly hope everyone connected to Brentford FC is okay.
