Impressed how quick you got this one up. Great service! Good draw if a little tricky but when youÂ’re one of the last 4 balls in the bag with Man City too, I breathed a sigh of relief. COYB.

Good omen ... Let it be Bristol City! Beat them in the same round on the way to winning the cup in 1994-95 against Manure. RIDEOUTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

Though Diamond is probably still pissed with himself that he didn't score first...

Bristol away - an omen? I remember going there in 95 (one of those days when every Evertonian seemed to say 'I'm going' and there were thousands there). My memory is goosed but it was possibly one of the few games not cancelled that weekend coz of cack weather (and possibly on a Sunday).

One thing I deffo remember is George Melly in front of me in the queue getting a train ticket. "Are you going to the match George?" I asked him. A very friendly "Ermmm...Nnnnnnoooo" was his reply. Probably just as well, brown and white brogues and a fedora wasn't really Everton away gear in 95. Up the Toffees!

Very fond memories of that day in 1995, we got absolutely pasted before Matt Jackson scored a belter. Even my dear old Dad stood up when that went in.

The weather was poor, my brogues took a battering.

Omen ? More likely to "do a Wigan" it and get relegated !

Thought we had to beat WHU first or is everyone forgetting how we have been playing lately. Sorry for the downer.

Am I the only one who finds it very odd that we should be considering the next round before we have even kicked a ball in this year's competition? It is one thing to draw and speculate but this Tuesday night nonsense is just ridiculous.

Whatever happened to the excitement of the 3rd Round on a Saturday? Now it can be any day that the TV gods decide.

I am especially miffed as I am flying to New Zealand in a few hours and will miss the game unless it is shown on Dubai TV. I always like cup-ties, so much more meaningful than individual league games. Even when we lose it feels significant – then you can let it go for another year.

I can remember some great cup games at Goodison, going right back to Andy Rankin (Everton's second best goalie that I have seen) providing nuisance value on the wing with a broken arm against Sheffield Wednesday. Then we equalised in the last minute for a 2-2 draw and won the replay.

There was a struggle against the mighty Kings Lynn, before we won 4-0. Gazza, back to his best, destroying Leyton Orient 4-1.

Not such good memories of a 0-3 result against Tranmere (the only time that I applauded the opposition team off the field). Also a 2-3 reverse against Bradford City, with Chris Waddle scoring a fantastic goal. I still regard that as the worst Everton performance that I saw at Goodison. One guy behind me in the stand let out a plaintiff wail at one stage – clearly his life was not going well and this performance/score sounded like the final straw!

I hope that there is a good cup-tie crowd and atmosphere tonight, whatever the result. It is the FA Cup after all – even on a Tuesday!

Heard today (just mate of a mate stuff) that BK has given RM 2 games to show some sort of turnaround.
Should mean a strong line-up if that's true.
I only sorted my season ticket seat yesterday,and it was still available for tonight ... its a half decent spec in the GS so cant see it being more than 25k attendance.
crucial times.

The next round is just a dream, let's hope tonight is NOT a nightmare.
The team owe the fans a good result.

Went to Bristol City in the 4th Round in 1995, sat in front of Paul Rideout's Dad, so instead of the usual F*** Off Rideout you're s****, it was "ohh unlucky Paul"

Replay with West Ham live on BT sport and if we qualify our 4th round game against Doncaster or Bristol City to be shown on BBC 1 on Sunday 25th....

I remember meeting George Melly in London in the 80s. Now a nice enough chap. But camper than a row of tents. And what the fuck this has got to do with the FA Cup IÂ’ll never know.
