    Jeepers. Thats now 9 non-PL guaranteed to be in the Last 16. With an outside chance of maybe 1 or 2 more from replays

    Was thinking this. We need to be taking tomorrow seriously!

    Although there is a possibility only being 6 Pl teams left in the Last 16, 3 of them are likely to be City, United and Chelsea, plus hopefully us, and if we did progress, it would not surprise if that ended up being the semi-finalists.
    City will no doubt be at home to somebody like Swansea or the winner of Boro/Newport
    Have a funny feeling United will draw Derby again
    After Chelsea dispose of Wednesday, the next non-PL team to visit the Bridge will be Doncaster Rovers
    Whereas if we get through, I can see us pulling either Watford again, or the winners of QPR/Portsmouth (The Redknapp link)

    I think we'll take it seriously, it just depends on what our players have in the tank. We're in a bit of a mini-slump form wise and it's made worse by all the injuries. But we normally get back in the groove pretty quickly under Poch. Hopefully starts tomorrow!

    Even more reason why we should put out a strong team.

    I’m pretty hopeful about tomorrow. Much more than I was about the Chelsea game.

    We should beat Palace with a second string.

    Palace will be really up for this and fight

    Poch will know this is the main trophy to target now this season.
    I expect him to really go for it

    Don’t think Pochettino has ‘mailed one in’ for some time.
    The Chelsea game went to penalties and we had a couple good chances to win in proper time. No problem with that imo
    Palace as you say will be up for this.

    We should be beating Chelsea with a second string too really.

    Wow. The arrogance. Beating EPL teams with second strings. Behave yourselves. You sound like all those fans at other 'top' clubs who are readily mocked on here for their delusion. Palace are going to be well organised and full of effort. Think we should get home by the odd gal but wouldn't be a walk in the park even if we weren't 4 main players down.

    They've got two good players of which, one would get into our team (because both of our right backs are massively flawed).

    I'd expect West Ham to beat them, let alone our second string.

    Well, well

    Knew Chelsea would be at home...didnt see them drawing United though.
    City could be going to Newport County, and we could have been going to Doncaster Rovers.

    City are still the team to beat in it, but a big chance for a lower club to get smashed in the final now...
