One of the minnows at home with a side like yesterdays to knock a cricket score past and boost the confidence of the players.
Most likely to get stuffed if the team had that mindset. No easy games in the FA cup, the lower sides will always up their game against higher league opposition, which I am sure you already know. :wink:
Didn't work for Rotherham or Tranmere.
But QPR are certainly not a Man City or Spurs to be fair.

It would be nice for the club to make some money from the FA Cup and give the fans some excitement. To do that, the criteria for Round Four seem to be:

A home game
Team selection, a mix similar to Sunday's, but maybe slightly stronger
Big, but, beat-able opposition - not necessarily Premier League
TV coverage

When 25 comes out of the bag as a home team this evening, who fits the bill as the next club drawn?
Aren't gate receipts split fairly evenly in the FA cup? If it's just about money, something like Man Utd away, which would have a decent chance of being on TV as well. Are spurs selling out Wembley?
City would be better!

Any big prem 'B' side at home or West Ham/Spuds away

Other than that, anyone away South of the Midlands - preferably a prem side
Spuds played mostly first team players against Tranmere. In terms of commercials, yes, but wouldn't fancy our chances against them..

I'd love Spuds or Wet Spam away....

The chance of watching us play either of that pair of stadium squatters would just be delightful...

The London Stadium is WHU permanent home now but you probably know that... hardly squatters then are they.

Tough Tie and could boil down to the team the Schteve puts out.

Exciting draw, all of a sudden a home tie against Spurs, United or Arsenal was possible.

West Ham have just paid Karren Brady an extra £400 thousand on top of her £900 thousand salary for “ consultancy work “

Lady Brady?

Worth every penny as how rich are Wet Spam now...

A better business person than her friend who invested £30M in a West London football club a few years back...

Fair enough but by using that criteria there are many more squatters in the UK than one could ever have imagined...The Queen for example, currently being the most high profile squatter in the UK! 8)

Krama what bollox....

Her Majesty the Queen and her family contribute greatly to the tourism industry of this country and its coffers and no doubt make up what it costs to keep the monarchy....

Wet Spam contribute only to the football tourists of East London and any income earned from the Olympic stadium goes into their coffers only (minus tax) and we taxpayers are still keeping it going for them.....

Indeed, as a London council tax payer, I along with hundreds of thousands of others paid for the stadium which the Hammers currently occupy for virtually sod-all.

As for the Queen, although I am not a monarchist as such, I am happy enough with the institution at the moment. Given the paucity of ability among politicians, I am tempted by the thought of a benign Kingship. Our parliamentary system is utterly discredited at the moment and may not fully recover......certainly not in my lifetime.

The death of the Queen, which will obviously come about in a few years, will be a hammer blow to a dispirited country.

What sort of opponents would we like ? A glamour tie or an easier game to enhance our chances of progressing further ? An away game to say, the Arsenal, would help the balance sheet.
Me, I'd like a home tie against one of the London clubs left in it. Loftus Road would be rocking !
We are talking QPR and the FA Cup ... there is no such thing as an easier game. Think Vauxhall Motors, MK Dons, Swansea City ... etc etc.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!
