So if it all goes to shit like the League cup draw, is this one of those where they go to a pre recorded option?

WTF do they need to rehearse? There is a black bag. There are 64 balls with a number inside each one. The balls go in the bag and are swished around whilst two ex rags/dippers take turns at pulling a ball out. My two kids aged 9 and 6 could do it without much fuss

It's become such a sickening spectacle I might just look it up afterwards

They need to get the temperatures just right.

It's all so self-congratulatory and for as long as it's all mates pulling the balls out it will be regarded as fixed.

You forgot to mention that said Bags of Balls are chilled before the draw.And a select few Balls, are heated by immersion in boiling water and added to the Bags only the last few seconds before the draw. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:Never pick 2 hot Balls in the same time :lol: :lol: Only pick hot balls for a home draw. :lol: :lol: Only pick a Cold Ball to play away at a hot ball.I bet rehearsals are tricky.

Since the takeover, we've been drawn at home 18 times and away 12 times in the FA Cup. That's compared to our being drawn at home 54.7% of the time for both domestic cup competitions overall in the same period. At one point, we were drawn at home for 16 out of 18 FA Cup games in a row, only for this to be followed by 8 away games on the trot.

Ah, that's a bit easier - There's 64 teams, 63 of whom we can be drawn against. 29 of those are Prem teams or in the top 10 in the Championship. So basically a 34/63 chance, or 54%.

Hoddle could put it on his head. Or do Jesse Lingards missus a favour and given it to the scrawny rag

Apart from local pride, hopefully with their thin squad Burnley will not want to get too involved in the distraction of FA Cup games.
