It is very likely that all 8 teams in tonights FA Cup quarter Final draw are going to very tough for Arsenal to get past unless there is a massive shock tonight or tomorrow. The draw will take place about 10 pm tonight after the holders Manchester City take on Sheffield Wednesday.
Also tonight our deadly rivals Spurs face Norwich and Leicester will try and get past Birmingham. Tottenham and Leicester will have home advantage and are expected to make it through without problems against the lower League sides, and although Man City are away, who would dare to suggest a Sheffield Wednesday victory? And can you imagine Man United losing at Derby County tomorrow?
So, looking at the likely names in the hat, there are expected to be SIX teams that are above us in the League, with Newcastle being the only team currently below us in the table. I am thinking that would be the most favourable draw for us after slamming them 4-0 last month, and we even beat them 1-0 up at St James Park.
But of all the other possibles I couldn’t see Arsenal being favourites to beat any of them, especially if we are drawn away from home…
You can watch the FA Cup draw live on BBC One or BT Sport at around 9.50 tonight, or even later if Man City game is taken to extra time..

Sheffield vs arsenal.
We have played two away games, I think we deserve to play at home this time around, Sheffield away will be so difficult…. Arteta winning this trophy at the first time of asking would be huge, best of luck! Coyg!
Come on Norwich, how’s your pens!
Porridge have won
👋 spuds!! 😀
Norwich won on pen
Spurs fans are going potty on the radio
They’re behind to a very decent side in the C.L.
Out of the cup.
We are now just 3 points behind them in the league, with a game in hand.
I reckon they’re using a different sort of potty right now !!
……and their next game is Burnley away!
I hope Barnes is back 😀
Burnley away. Oooh. Not an easy fixture when on a losing streak
Haha their fans saying they want rid of Maureen, how they should never have moved from WHL, should’ve invested in players instead, how nobody wants to score….. oh I’m loving it! 😂
Maureen aka specialist in failure!
All the talk of us possibly losing Auba, could it be bye bye Harry !!??
Could well be, AJ 😜
Maureen is I hope getting his just rewards after what he said about Wenger
Spot on, Sue 👍 Vile man!
Wenger called him a “Voyeur” in return.
One thing Maureen won’t be peeping at this year is …… SILVERWARE !
More like the wooden spoon 😂
No doubt they’ll remind us they’re still in the CL……..😂 yeah for 90 more minutes hahaha!!
Arsenal have enough problems of their own without seeking joy from the misfortune of others.
Mourheen is getting a dose of his own words….you can’t abuse Wenger and get away with it. I wish we could finish above the spuds….then we celebrate st totterringam day
oh dear!….oh dear! don’t scare the boys like that. let them be on the turf and vanquish the challenger. the boys are good footballers and dear michel is an intelligent strategist. all best, dear gunners!
The bigger teams play away though…..
