    United fans bemoan luck of the draw

    The Red Devils drawing Everton didn't go down well with United fans on social media – as many seemed to be hoping for lower-league opposition.

    One said: "There could have only been one other PL team in that draw and we’d still have got them. Our luck with draws is shocking."

    Another posted: "Championship league 1 league 2 national league teams all in the draw but we still get a prem team."

    And the moaning continued with: "Another boring home draw that'll no doubt get moved to Friday or Monday night for TV. Sigh."

    But another wrote: "Us against Everton in the FA Cup, good memories."

    Time stops for Norman

    Manchester United drawing Everton has brought back memories of an iconic FA Cup final winner.

    Norman Whiteside saw off the Toffees by swerving a famous and brilliant extra-time clincher for the only goal of the 1985 showpiece.

    In fact, the Northern Ireland legend raised almost £200,000 from his memorabilia for that game at auction two years ago.

    Whiteside, now 57, said at the time: “This will go a long way to subsidise my pension that I never really had when I was a player.”

    Utd and City land cracking ties

    It sounds more like a final – but Manchester City will host Chelsea in surely the pick of the FIVE all-Premier League third-round ties.

    One Etihad fan posted: “This is just ridiculous chelsea in the first stage of both the carabao and fa cup what are the odds of that.”

    Another joked: “The FA making sure chelsea ends the season trophyless.”

    Wood vs Stanley for live TV?

    Fans of Boreham Wood and Accrington Stanley have been joking about their third-round clash being a live pick for TV.

    Both teams wanted Prem opposition rather than each other.

    But their supporters took the draw in good spirit online.

    One said: "Coming from an Accrington fan – as desperate as I am for Stanley to make the fourth round I’m very glad at least one of these two teams will be in round 4!"

    And a Wood follower said: "What an opportunity to get through to the next round.

    "Sending very best wishes from Montenegro and hoping to read of further success to come. I used to get taken to see you guys play back in the 1970s as a young lad! Go the Wood!"

    But when one joked £Hopefully a TV tie" another replied: "Not a chance."

    Back in our Pomp…

    Portsmouth couldn't resist a flashback to a famous win after being draw at Tottenham.

    Pompey beat Spurs 2- 0 at Wembley in April 2010 to reach their second FA Cup final in three years.

    And along with a video of the goals, now-League One side Portsmouth posted: "Don't say it, don't say it, don't say it. Spurs in the FA Cup, you say?"

    Didier Drogba notched the only goal for Chelsea against Pompey in the final 12 years ago.

    'Owling success

    Sheffield Wednesday's 2-1 late comeback win over Mansfield topped the second-round attendances.

    And the three biggest crowds for the next stage could all be in the north west.

    Man Utd host Everton, City entertain Chelsea and Liverpool entertain Wolves.

    Wrex-rated daw for Coventry

    Hollywood's Wrexham owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney wills see the National League leaders visit mid-table Championship side Coventry.

    Dragons' fans labelled it a "tasty" draw" and a perfect test of how far the big spenders have come.

    But others wer less happy at missing a real top glamour tie.

    One said of Coventry: Too good to realistically beat, but not a special day out.. Respectable but meh!"

    Watch the replays first

    Two enticing second-round replays will be televised live on terrestrial TV.

    Charlton visit Stockport County for the right to host Walsall.

    And Gillingham entertain Dagenham & Redbridge with extra edge – as the winners are at home to Prem side Leicester.

    Was the draw a bore?

    Social media was divided over whether the FA Cup has lost more of its prestige by making the third-round draw during the World Cup.

    Several fans bemoaned how long it took and one posted: "It was a very very very dull draw!"

    And another claimed: "We’re watching the World Cup, no one is interested in FA CUP FOR NOW."

    Don't write us Gills off yet!

    Gillingham fans are peeved that pundits are trailing Dagenham & Redbridge as hosting Leicester City.

    The Gills, second bottom in League Two, snatched an stoppage-time leveller at the Daggers to earn a second-round replay.

    And the winners have a prime clash at home to the Foxes.

    But one Gills' fan posted:"@ITVSport have already wrote gills off, just as us fans have. Dagenham vs Leicester apparently.

    And another wrote: "#ITVSport#PORGHA please tell your commentator that Dagenham & Redbridge will play Leicester IF they beat Gillingham. They probably will mind-you, but as a @TheGillsFC fan we deserve a little hope!"

    Reds should focus on cups

    Ex-Liverpool striker John Aldridge says the Reds should put extra focus on the FA this season – so a home clash with Wolves is a tougher draw than they might have liked.

    Aldridge reckons the Premier League title is already out of Liverpool's reach – freeing them up for a real go at cup glory.

  • Ian Tuckey

    Wood you believe it?

    It was the draw neither of them wanted.

    But Boreham Wood boss Luke Garrard and Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman could joke about in person – as they were at Anfield together to hear it!

    National League promotion-chasers Wood will host League One strugglers Stanley – when both were hoping for a money-spinning tie.
