    This is insane. Watching 4th round draw and United, Arsenal, Spurs, and Palace are the last 4 teams left, after minnows have all been drawn.

    Arsenal and Spurs were two of the last four balls.

    Other potential aggro-fests narrowly avoided include a Manchester derby and Millwall vs West Ham or Palace.

    It's been almost a decade, but I'm pretty sure West Ham/Millwall was the one that scared them

    Millwall (Champ) 2 - 1 Hull (Champ)
    Preston North End (Champ) 1 - 3 Doncaster (L1)
    QPR (Champ) 2 - 1 Leeds United (Champ)
    Woking (National League) 0 - 2 Watford
    Newport County (L2) 2 - 1 Leicester
    Wolves 2 - 1 Liverpool

    I saw some of these. In a season microcosm, Everton scored two brilliant goals and looked fantastic against League Two leaders Lincoln, and then gave up a cheap goal off a set piece from a stupid foul and spent the rest of the game nervously seeing out the win. Leicester trailed most of the way away to League Two Newport County (cool nickname - "the Exiles" - because they had to play a few seasons away from home due to nonpay of back rent), scored an equalizer late, then gave up a stupid handball in the box at the death and lost. Only caught the last 15 minutes of Wolves-Liverpool. The Liverpool thread here covered that, from what l saw Wolves looked pretty good. Spurs were only up 1-0 at the half, I watched some of the second half and it was baby-seal clubbing.

    Biggest upset was non-league Barnet over Sheffield United, who are currently third in the Championship and so may well get promoted to the PL. Scathing remarks by the Sheffield manager about his team: https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...rves-up-shocks-as-barnet-oldham-newport-shine

    In the PL, in addition to Liverpool and Leicester, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Fulham (losers to League 2 Oldham Athletic) were knocked out.

    Ugh. I was hoping for a Millwall derby. This is much, much worse.
