FA Cup Quarter Final draw

Barnsley players celebrate their victory at Anfield

The draw for this season’s FA Cup Quarter Finals take place shortly. I hope, nay pray that Manchester United and Chelsea get drawn together. In fact, my ideal draw would probably be:

Man Utd V Chelsea
Middlesbrough or Sheffield United V West Brom
Bristol Rovers V Portsmouth
Barnsley V Cardiff

Not ideal for Barnsley fans granted, but I think that gives them a good chance of progressing. Let’s see what really happens…

UPDATED: Well what were the odds of that? The actual draw has kept the “big two” apart, but at least there’s guaranteed to be a Football League club in the semi-finals.

Full draw:

Sheff Utd or Middlesbrough V Cardiff

Man Utd V Portsmouth

Bristol Rovers V West Brom

Barnsley V Chelsea

The matches are to be played on the weekend of 8th/9th March 2008.
