    It should be an open draw, but I think there's an argument for the 'lower' team being drawn at home by right, irrespective of the order they're drawn out at, up to the semi-final.

    Presumably people who say you shouldn't ever tinker with the format in any way whatsoever want a return to the endless replays of yesteryear.

    To be fair Merson is Sky's contribution to care in the community.

    If you seeded the fa cup you might as well stop the competition, its that fact that lower teams can play against the top team that makes the cup. We wouldnt want it like the champions leauge were its fixed so certain teams dont play each other..,,,anyway utd wont like being seeded lower than cambridge or mk dons
