Liverpool, City and Chelsea kept apart.

I don't trust anyone nowadays.

Ernie, the so-called Big 6 always well taken care of Ref VAR draws

On the international front, all seem to condemn and sanction Russian aggression on Ukraine but still the US is buying natural gas from Putin... same old shit everywhere.

If we get by Palace, I'd hope for Forest or Huddersfield.

Going to be tight booking the train for this one. I think the game will be on Sunday 20 March, simply because we've got the skunks on the Thursday 17 March, and I don't think it will be Monday 21 March because that's the beginning of an international week.

Sky reporting the quarters are on 19 and 20 March.

Just read in the Echo that Everton will have two games to re-arrange following this cup draw, Watford as we knew clashes with the Palace cup fixture and therefore had to postponed, but our league game with Palace was scheduled for the Semi-Final weekend and obvously one of the two teams will be involved in that tie. So many games to fit in between now and the end of the season.

All the away teams in the semis?

Newcastle at home on 17 March. Finish at 9:45 pm. 39 hours later, nowhere near recovered (science says they need 54 to 72 hours recovery) they are supposed to play Crystal Palace. They are not machines.

Wolves on the Sunday before 2pm.

So what is the club going to do? Ask for the FA Cup match to be played Sunday, Monday???

Obviously Newcastle is a flat out must win game but it's unfair to ask us to play Saturday at 3pm. Dangerous for players.

Adrian – FA Cup quarterfinals at 3 o'clock on a Saturday? Don't be soft!

But 2 games with VAR and 2 without. What a farce!

Cup game at palace confirmed as Sunday 20 March. 12:30 kick-off. Absolute joke. No consideration for travelling fans who will probably have to leave Liverpool around 5 am. Fucking joke!

Football hasn’t cared about its fans for a long time now.

12:30 kick-off in London for a cup game is a disgrace.

Seems odd, to me, that only one quarter final is scheduled to be played on the Saturday.

Rob, also no consideration for US West Coast fans. Kickoff is 4:30 am for us. Since my wife doesn't care to be awakened by an alarm at that hour, that means I'm sleeping alone!

Everton is to provide free coach travel for the Club's FA Cup quarter-final tie at Crystal Palace.

The last-eight fixture has been scheduled to kick off at 12.30pm on Sunday 20 March, meaning Evertonians are unable to travel to Selhurst Park by train.

To ease travel concerns of supporters, the Board of Directors has confirmed the Club will be increasing its provision of coaches for the match and is making places on official coaches free for fans. Tickets for the fixture will go on sale on Thursday 10 March.

The Club will also reimburse any affiliated or independent Supporters' Clubs or groups who arrange independent bus or coach travel to South London.

Affiliated Supporters' Clubs will be contacted directly by the Club’s Fan Engagement team to process the reimbursement of coach costs. More information on how other fan groups or unaffiliated Supporters’ Clubs can apply for the reimbursement of coach or minibus hire will be made available in due course

Free coach travel for Palace
