I think it's a good draw for us, chance to test ourselves against a Prem side with a chance they may not fancy it. Decent footballing team and set of fans. Quite looking forward to it already

Can see them making 7/8  changes so might have an outside chance as for the gate can’t see them bringing any more than 400 so probably looking at around 7000 not really a good draw

Looking forward to seeing Smudge "get to grips" with Ivan Toney...red card one way or the other!

I remember Toney playing against us for Barnsley a few years back. One of those players who liked to fall over a lot and get in the ref’s ear. Not surprised he’s gone a long way.

I'd have preferred Orient.

More chance of winning and getting a big club in the next round!

Away following will be about the same too.

Bad bad draw. Gutted for Carol.

I'd wager Orient take more to Stoke than Brentford bring to Vale. 

Orient would have had real spice, Mr Smith and Vigoroux .

Outside change at best for TV.

TV have got this lot to go at:

United v Villa

West Ham v Leeds

Forest v Arsenal

Boreham Wood/St Albans v Wimbledon

Kidderminster v Reading

Swindon v Man City

I would be surprised if we end up on the box ahead of the above.

Weren't Brentford the darlings of the BBC or Sky a few years ago?  Though I listed exactly the same fixtures as you and in that very order too

Don’t think it’s too bad a draw, yes it not maybe a real glamour tie like a Man Utd, Liverpool etc which brings in loads of money but let’s be honest there was some real shockers you could have had, this is at home to premier league who we beat to win our last trophy so at least some history in the tie, I’d be disappointed if we can’t get a gate of 8000+ for a game like this with how we are playing this season.

Not the best draw but could have been much, much worse. Prem Lge team at home, crock  Ivan Toney and we have a decent chance of winning. 

Pens if level after 90 mins so anything could happen. Looking forward to this one, hope it's on tv but doubt it.

More than happy with the draw, a premier league team at home, you can't really ask for much better than that given how many teams are in the hat.
Reasonable chance of an upset, especially if they are concentrating on their premier league status, early January so the weather will no doubt play a part.
I would imagine their fans aren't exactly ecstatic at the prospect.
All part and parcel of the third round proper, there's no reason at all why we should go into this fixture fearing the worst.

Yes someone else will know but I'm 99.99 % certain it was on some Asian network live. 

Not sky or BT but was on live I'm sure. 

It was shown on ESPN in the US and was a key international fixture choice. Never shown in the UK though.
