FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

It's that time of year again - the Owls enter the draw for the FA Cup at the 3rd round stage this Sunday, but who do we want to come up against?

Wednesday haven't enjoyed the best of times in the world famous competition of late, but took Premiership Manchester City all the way in last year's competition, eventually crashing out in the replay in the City of Manchester stadium in front of a 6,000 strong travelling Barmy Army.

But the club could well do with progressing through a couple of rounds at least this time around to help with the financial situation at S6, with a couple of 'easy' home matches in the opening rounds as a must.

Of course, everyone would love a trip to Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United, who will also enter the draw along with Brian Laws' men, but progression in the competition could earn the club a much needed financial boost, and also the chance of a bigger televised match later down the lines.

The competition is famous for 'giant killings', and there could be a number of lower league teams in the 3rd round this time, with Horsham, Harrogate Railway Athletic, Chasetown and Staines playing for the chance to play the 'big boys'.

And there's also the added spice of the chance of a Steel City derby against the Blades or another derby clash with Barnsley on the cards but, sadly, no trip to Leeds United.

Number 35 is the one to look out for Wednesday, with the tie being played on Saturday 5 and Sunday 5 of January 2008, and the draw will take place at 3.15pm on BBC 1 on Sunday.

Well not a bad draw, was looking for a prem team. And if we want to win the game there is no better place to go than the bottom side in the prem. Derby are conceding two goals a game at the moment and i think they would have been looking for an easier draw than us. If we can play like we have been a late i cannot see why we cant win down at Derby. Should be allocated in the region of 8,000 i think and we will sell out so should be a cracking atmosphere.
will it ever happen
