Not the worst draw but you’d hope we’d win that. Bloody stressful watching the draw though when it was down to us, Man Utd or Palace to go away to Arsenal.

Shit, boring draw.

Thank fuck not Arsenal again though. NLDs are too tense and my heart couldn’t take four in one season.

Not a terrible draw. Pitch is Premier League quality so decent, we have a good away record and because of the Stadium fiasco it is probably better if we get drawn away!

But Palace are more than capable of producing the goods on their day so we won't get away with playing a significantly weakened team for this one.

Actually celebrated a little when United were drawn not gonna lie.

It's a bit disappointing getting a team we already play at least twice a season, would have been nice to get someone different but a decent chance to make it into the fifth round. COYS

It was a draw with tension for me... Really stressful yet exciting when it came to the last four...

Part of me was hoping for the arse away when arse holes came out

Yeah that was pretty tense, Robbie looked fully expectant that we would be next out after he drew arsenal out at home.

Palace not so bad.

I think a lower PL team is pretty much the easiest possible draw. I don't think Palace will be fielding a full strength side given their position in the league.

Happy with that. No "giant killing fairytale" to contend with. We're in great form away from home and Palace are beatable.
