That would go well like the City chant for yaya and Kolo Toure, where we all stand for Carol, and on honkers for Kevin.

Hope that Pope starts in this as heard him on the radio earlier, saying that he's never had chance of a big cup game, except for playing at Liverpool when he was 20, and that its seemed he's always had the likes of Exeter away.

He certainly deserves it after Saturday's heroics.

Having this on the horizon should also hopefully concentrate the players to (continue to) perform over the next month to ensure they're in the team for The Etihad.

Crikey, what a draw! They have the most ridiculous squad, even their second string would beat most Premier clubs:

Knew they were good but couldn't believe the names when I saw them. Bet there'll be another melee at the final whistle with the Vale players fighting over the shirts 😀

Let's hope they play their U 23's!

Aren't there rules about who you play in Cup games?

Actually, having come down slightly off the high, I hope the players don’t take their eyes off the ball for surrounding league games.

 

Some of them could be playing for their places.

If they do then they dont play in the big game.

Off topic, Hull have had to revise their hopes, Solihull were winning 3-0, but Rotherham came back late to win 4-3 in injury time, Boot`s hopes over.

Can be more prone to injuries also.

Friday 7.45pm
Saturday 12.30pm
Saturday 5.30pm
Sunday 2pm
Sunday 4.30pm
Monday 7.45pm.  

the above are the options taken from the Man City forum. They seem to favour the Sunday due to other matches.

It won't be the Friday as we'll have both played only 2 days before on the Wednesday (New Years Day), City v Everton in a 5:30pm kick-off.

City will also be playing the midweek after our game, in the League Cup semi-final 1st-leg (assuming they beat Oxford in the Quarters).

You would think they'll put out their strongest team for both of the above games, so will probably rest most/all for our game sandwiched in between.

Good draw as long as they don't charge £50 to get in

Vs Rotherham at the same stage last year it was £10 a ticket. Increased away allocation from 4.5k to 6k and overall attendance was 52,000.

Quite surprised to hear that considering City's wage bill

It gives people a chance to see them who could not afford Prem prices or get tickets, I assume it is just for the cheaper areas.

Gate money is pretty irrelevant to the likes of Man City.

I’d be surprised if the gate was more that 30,000 to be honest, with us taking maybe 4,500. I think the figures of 52,000 and us taking 10,000 are a bit wide of the mark (and yes, I was at Villa both times but things were a bit different then). Still a decent payday mind.

And it could be worse (financially).... it could be Barnsley at home 😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😂😂😂😂🤣

I, along with no doubt many other fans, saw us win twice at Citeh inside 11 months in the 90’s.

What could possibly go wrong ?

Definitely the fastest to achieve one after 6 or 7 months, but not the first from the Leicester fan site, being a billionaire helps I suppose.

A chant sung by Leicester City fans about Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Vichai had a dream, to build a football team, he came from Thailand and nos he one of uour own, we play from the back, we counter attack, champion's of England you made us sing that, whoa whoa whoa
