    It's just odd that we could now face Wycombe in the competition, who we have already beaten in the competition.

    The group stage thing was a dumb idea. Should remain a straight knockout.

    Away game I'd prefer a local one but just our luck we'll get Yeovil

    Home tie, anyone's welcome because I'm more confident we'll beat them now :)

    I think was annoyed me was leicesters game was delayed because of the first team so it was great to see them battered but surely any delay cannot be right?

    We don't want Bradford away. That's the only tie I wouldn't like.

    Would be interesting however if we were to get Swansea away.
    Would guess there would be hardly any home supporter interest and massive away supporter interest.

    Surely we would outnumber home supporters several times to one wouldn't we, as long as we got the allocation.

    Would guess at maybe a 1,000 or so Swansea supporters tuning up and at least 5,000-6,000 City.

    Be very interesting if that was the draw.

    I don't really want Swansea, purely because i don't want to be accused of having an easy route to the final by virtue of being drawn against the u23 sides.

    Just checked and the Liberty Stadium away capacity is 2,500. We would obviously sell our allocation.

    I think Swansea away is the worst possible draw and not likely to draw a big away following.

    I think it will. Just 2 games from Wembley? I am sure we would sell 2,500 tickets for that, especially going into the game as favourites too.

    Guess we will see if it happens. Just think the two games from Wembley and stubs thing will get fans interested.

    I think the Stubs things a myth now, old methods. Could be wrong there tho. Could Ticketmaster cope with adding I've got 2 stubs into the equations, or will it be season ticket holders then membership if they still exist then general sale?

    Still think the stubs thing will be in fans' minds though, unless the club come out and say it is not a factor.

    People are already talking about needing stubs on here.

    Yeah that's how we used to no it, I doubt there would be issues obtaining tickets to a final.
    Oxford were given 40k last year, so if you say we've sold 5k season tickets and limited to 6 per ticket which I think is ticket allocation for away games currently that's 30k and general sale will be a cue around the Ricoh like v Chelsea for the next 10k+

    Yeovil away would suit me.

    I'm not fussed who we draw to be honest, just want a home tie. Would really like to go and an away tie would be a pain in the arse to get to
