Home games for both rounds. I am pleased.

Even better when Crouch dropped the Sheffield Wednesday ball, then picked ours up instead for a home draw.

Two of our greatest FA Cup performances were against these respective sides with the 1966 final and 1995 semi. That game at Elland Road our best performance in the 90s decade. I was behind the goal where Jackson's header opened the scoring. Limpar and Parkinson both outstanding. COYB! We can do it again!

Two homes games, no complaints from me, but it’s the next game and tomorrow is a big game.

I’m hoping that Everton, can utilise Tosun, effectively, and feed him in, and hopefully Richarlison can play tomorrow.

Big test and Everton to grind out a win.

Paul, I second that with Tosun. We need all his ability, hopefully a start of the run from last game will have his mind set right for the upcoming games. COYB

My Sheffield Wednesday cup memories (apart from seeing all the trains coming back past our house after the 66 final) was when we played them in the 3rd round (early 90s?)
We had played them New years day and drew 1-1.
On the Saturday in the cup we also drew 1-1
Then we drew the replay 1-1.
I was at all of them.
Couldn't make the 2nd replay... which we won 5-0.
I think the it was one of the 1-1 draws at Hillsborough where Ratters suddenly pulled up with an innocuous looking hamstring strain and it turned out to be the beginning of the end for him.

I remember those games Martin. Think it was 87 88 in Colin Harvey's first season. Was indeed a bad groin/hernia injury to Ratters. Think Bracewell made his comeback in that 5-0 after being out the whole of season before. Then we had those 3 games v Middlesbrough too! You can google that 5 nil quite easily. Good to watch!

Matt, You’re right about Ratters, for months he was being treated for a groin strain before it was diagnosed as a hernia. I remember him talking about it on the radio years ago. Apparently many players were misdiagnosed, treated for groin strain instead of hernia. Don’t ask me how that happened.

It was very common, Ray, probably because players could still play, if they rested in between games. If a player can run, then people tend to think it isn't serious. I'd say because of this, loads of players would have waited until the season ended before they went under the knife.

They would never get away with it nowadays, because of the speed of the game, and also because I don't think the speed of the pitch would allow it.

1964...Pickering put us ahead..
4th Rd ?. Went to sleep and they went 2 - 1 up.

Stuffed them three nil at Hillsborough
Happy days

Sheffield Wednesday are postponing their league games, could be a bye for us...

Alan # 12 - I was at the game at Goodson. I thought Fred Pickering scored the last-minute equaliser? My memory must be playing tricks on me.

I also went to the replay – crossed the Pennines in a royal blue Ford Zephyr owned and driven by a mate of my dad's Brian Rolands. God rest their souls – two good men and great Evertonians.

Nice that, Laurie, what a pity about Tony Kay, continuing the Sheffield Wednesday connection.
