    As still someone who is relatively new to this ... how does home-away work in FA Cup? Is it a bidding process? Seems like a lot of PL teams heading to lower division squads.

    Home/away is luck of the draw.

    Magic of the Cup and all of that sort of thing.

    Nothing more hackneyed than the English announcer saying "this has the feel of a real FA Cup tie"

    Blind draw, with the venue switching if the first match ends without a winner. There are some countries (France and/or Germany, IIRC) that don't have replays and mandate the match taking place at the lower-division team's site.

    50/50 and all, but Millwall not getting a home draw feels a little too convenient.

    Not hard to see who's being placed in the Whale Regional, is it?

    I can feel Typefitter getting ready to fire some Burnley posts off.

    What a fucking nightmare. Normally, I'd be ecstatic with a point at Old Trafford, but... Fucking shit fucking fuckers.

    Wow, Newcastle beat City with 23 percent possession. That is massive.
