Not talking about his managerial ability, I'm just saying he's a sneaky c*nt.

You do remember Pulis' Stoke a few years back when they done us 2-1 in the cup? Diving, cheating at every opportunity..who has put the players up to that? Who has given them the instructions?

Every dirty trick in the book will be used in this Cup tie, too many factors against us that I don't think we'll get a result...

F*ckin hell I'm being negative, but Pulis is a crafty ****

Let's put it like this...I'm very confident that we:

1/ Get beat by a West Bromwich 'dodgy goal' OR
2/ A Referee f*ck up.


I hope we get a decent Referee.

Not really a great draw. Away third game in a row, and to a Prem side.

Still, better than Man Utd, Arsenal or Liverpool.

Bit negative before a ball has even been kicked.

Sam will have a few tricks of his own for Pulis's team to contend with.
Cos I'm f*cking nervous that's why...

I don't want a jumpy,tracksuit wearing, baseball b*llended, sheep dating, c*ntface stopping my team from getting to at least a Wembley FA cup Semi-Final.

We will never have a better chance either. Safe in the League, loads of the big clubs out...

I hate Tony Pulis. Reject all advances from Liverpool for Sakho and force them to go after Berahino.

They didn't wait until the 3rd Rd replays we're done so hopefully soon.

I think it's 5 games on live Friday-Monday

Villa are at home too, so good chance of the game being moved even if not on tv

Bradford and Middlesborough games guaranteed to be on live.

It is in the broadcasters contracts that Liverpool and Man U must be on live every round I believe, so the two fifth round games that might feature them will also be broadcast live.

That only leaves a possibility of one other live game or plod insisting that Villa and West Brom can't be at home the same day - do they normally worry about that?

Anyone know our record vs Pullis' teams? Can't make for great reading. :thdn:

In our first season back they drew at Upton Park and we won at the Brittania, last season Palace doubled us I believe.

I reckon televised games will be:

Palace v Liverpool (subject to Liverpool getting through)

Arsenal v Boro

Bradford v Sunderland/Fulham

Preston/Sheff United v Man United

Blackburn v Stoke

Mark Hughes' history with Blackburn may just get them the Monday night slot on the box.

West Brom v West Ham is hardly a glamour tie. Allardyce v Pulis? I'm drifting off just thinking about it.

One thing to note is that Villa are also at home in this round. Will they have both matches on the Saturday or move one to another day?

I don't reckon that'll be how they bill it though, it'll be memories of Jeff Astle and Sir Trev. West Brom and West Ham combined have a much better Cup tradition than Blackburn and Stoke combined. I reckon it will be the other four you list plus ours.

Blackburn v Stoke!? Even Blackburn fans don't want to watch Blackburn. Can't see much reason to televise that game.

Villa v Leicester could be a potential TV pick - all Premiership and a Midlands derby of sorts.

Should we get past this one, I don't think it will make any difference at all who we draw in the 6th Round be it home or away. In one way or another, I think all the remaining London teams will all make it through to the last 8, so there should be an even chance we will draw one of them. There will be calls from many on here to pit us with Arsenal at The Emirates in a repeat of the 1975 6th round, when we won 2-0 and that, you can be certain, is who we will get and not the winners of Blackburn / Stoke, Sheff Utd /Man United, Villa / Leicester / or the Derby /Reading ties.

Hypothetically speaking, if we got the Semis and they still played the two games at neutral grounds...

Where would we play if we got Villa? And how much would I have to pay for you not to come, Puff?
