Just go into it with nothing to lose and see what happens? I think if we take the fear out of it for the players they'll respond! Good tie for Morrison so he might have a bit of inside knowledge? If we win great if we lose, not the end of the world! Just go there and play as underdogs and see what happens!
Owls That!

Would have preferred Man Utd, Arsenal (glammer tie) or Crawley (winnable tie) at home but at the end of the day, we're in the 5th round for the 1st time since god knows when so lets enjoy it, decent bit of income from sharing ticket sales and chance to match ourselves against premiership quality.

we must be due to beat one of the middle type premier teams soon, why not this time?! shows what a fall its been though when Birmingham City are now the superior team! i still think it us who bring the glamour to this tie though and they must be happy with the guarantee of big away following being as they had a midlands derby in round 4 and still only turned the same crowd as us

Terrible draw. Would be a shame to go out to these - so lets hope we can cause an upset. Wouldn't have been so bad had it been at Hillsborough. Still could have been worse - Brighton or reading away.

Not very optimistic at all. They are a hard to beat premiership team and can score a goal or two. We can't defend well at all at the moment. I can't see us beating Birmingham but I am just hoping that we don't get spanked.

Well if Orient and Exeter can beat us 4-0 and 5-1 respectively, it could be double figures.
