There is plenty of scope for 'bonus' points with this lot .... and plenty of chance to waste some transfers. This is where the season really kicks off

I can see Lukaku & Sanchez getting some game time v. Reading which could be profitable. Maybe Jesus & KDB (depends if he plays tomorrow or not) v. Rotherham...?

Who will do a 'Saido Berahino' this year?

For every Saido Berahino, there are twenty five duff transfers.

I’ve ignored the early rounds of cup games for the last few seasons and it’s served me very well.

If you are definitely doing an A to B transfer then no harm going via C if he gets a chance of doing a Rondon.

Generally aiming a transfer at a single game "haul" is for mugs. However in certain circumstances it may be justified. For example as long as A doesn't play before B in the immediate post Cup set of games, and the player brought in for the Cup plays before B in that set of games, the case for the en route transfer is significantly strengthened.

4th round draw (only the ties featuring TFF players)

6 Premier League teams are already out .... Bournemouth, Cardiff, Fulham, Huddersfield, Leicester & most notably Liverpool
Replays for - Newcastle & Southampton

Ties to be played the weekend of 26th/27th January ....

Accrington Stanley v Derby or Southampton
Arsenal v Man United
Brighton v West Brom
Chelsea v Sheff Wed or Luton
Crystal Palace v Spurs
Man City v Burnley
Millwall v Everton
Newcastle or Blackburn v Watford
Shrewsbury or Stoke v Wolves
Wimbledon v West Ham

There are 3 (potentially 4) all premier league ties with Arsenal v Man United being the headliner. Man City have a home draw again and Chelsea have another home game v. lower league opposition.

The absence of Liverpool will throw up some 2 for 0s and 3 for 1s etc when the dates are announced.

Note- the Premier League are continuing efforts to undermine the FA Cup by scheduling league fixtures in the midweek immediately after Round 4 (Tues/Weds 29/30) so don't expect strong teamsheets to maximise those flange opportunities :(

Not specifically related to TFF but I’m very suprised by the timing of the Millwall Everton game

Makes things interesting down the line when a maximum of 9 Premiership teams will be in the last 16, and if West Brom and Millwall say were to step up ........
