    Looks like a good draw.

    What is the point of this tournament? I don’t mean to be needlessly provacative, but why is there a need for more than one national tournament? Why doesn’t the FA Cup simply suffice.

  3. Michael says:

    Well, you might as well say “What’s the point of the FA Cup, why doesn’t the league suffice?”It gives teams something else to play for and sometimes it means you get a team like Birmingham, who won it last year, having something to celebrate that they wouldn’t otherwise.

    Should be interesting!And yay, Norwich at home and it isn’t on a Sunday…
