Away At Burnley In FA Cup 3rd Round

Away At Burnley In FA Cup 3rd Round

The traditional draw for the third round of the FA Cup has been made, and despite not being drawn at home, Arsenal, rather pleasantly, have been given a low-key tie for a change.

The Gunners have been given rough passages (oohh errr) of late, forcing Arsene's Army to do things the hard way, but, and with the greatest respect to Burnley FC, Arsenal have a much easier 3rd round tie this season.

Burnley are currently 9th in the Championship and have won three of their last four games.

1 Preston North End v Scunthorpe United

Woo hoo, somewhere different to go for once, no more of this Premiership away tie crap that has blighted us for the last five years. Very much looking forward to this, just hope the beeb don't do their usual and move it to 5.30am on a Monday morning.

Fortunately for you Tim, the BBC have Aston Villa v Man Utd, West Ham v Man City or Totts v Reading to get their grubby little hands on.

Even better is that on 5 Jan, there'll be West Ham (just 4 days after facing us in the league) v Man City, Villa v Man U, Spurs (4 days after travelling to Villa) v Reading. Hopefully some of the strong teams will be gone/tired after this round. We've got a Carling Cup tie on 9 Jan. All sounds good.

Shame it is not at the Emirates it would have given Burnley a bumper paycheck if I'm correct in that the revenue from cup games is split between the two clubs.

This week keeps getting better... Spurs came from behind to lead 2:1, only to give it away to a freak goal... Now a 2:2, Keane got sent off - for fouling our old boy Muamba. Well.

LD & R7 etc, surely the best tie for us to have was Man Utd, Chelski or Liverpool?? Whats the point in facing an easier team if we have to play a premier league team later on!!
