Arsenal, Tottenham and Man Utd left in the draw and we end up with boring Brentwood or Brentford or whatever they’re called.

Magic of the FA Cup my arse. I went to the last two 4th round matches against dull Championship / League One opposition in 2007 and 2008. Not going to bother this time.


And the award for most miserable post of the year goes to...

Load of rubbish. Let’s face it, you’ll be there.

With Martin Allen having managed both bees might see him as a pundit for the game? His next column should be good for the daily mail

Lowest team left in the cup, playing at home to a higher division side that are struggling; I'm confident we will be televised.

Highly unlikely. Beyond round 2 games that don't involve PL teams are ignored unless the non-league team involved is tiny. The last one to be televised was Chasetown v Cardiff a few years back.

I certainly hope we are on TV (although I will be at the game), however, the major fly in the ointment is the number of all Premier ties. Arsenal/United are obviously tied on for a "prime time" spot. It's then in the lap of the gods who the TV bosses choose.

Obviously this is just dreaming with lots of IF'S, but if we beat the fake bees, there could well be enough smaller clubs left in round 5 where a kind (dull) draw could give a potential route to an FA Cup quarter final.
Ridiculous, I know, but it's not actually out of the question.
It's happened before, chesterfield, Wycombe etc.
One game at a time, I know....................

Dreamer, I'm nothing but a dreamer.

I think after the initial disappointment of not drawing a big team (only heightened by the incredible bad luck with the remaining balls left) most Barnet fans will look forward to this fixture

Home Tie
Should be a sell-out
Winnable (chance to break our records and enter 5th round)
London derby against the (fake) bees

Suddenly very glad we didn't draw Man City away.

There have been many moderate boxers who've been willing to go out and take a hammering provided the financial reward was lucrative.

I know. Last time we were 2-1 up on aggregate in the League Cup with 20 minutes to go.

Next round we'll finish them off, like we should have done in 1994.

I can remember Barnet beating Burton 10-0 in a southern League match in the early 1970’s.

I can remember missing most of a Barnet match in the North West because of a massive traffic jam on the M6.

What a nightmare evening for Burton supporters.

How many fans missed out on KO against United?
