Aston Villa get Reading or West Brom away if we beat Palace in FA Cup

The draw for the quarter finals of the FA Cup has just happened and if we beat Palace, four days before our Wembley final, then we will meet either Reading or West Brom in the next round.

The draw was good for us and also good for the competition as Chelsea will meet Stoke or Manchester City and Fulham will meet either Bolton or Spurs.


The full draw is below.

  • Portsmouth v Birmingham
  • Reading/West Brom v Crystal Palace/Aston Villa
  • Fulham v Bolton/Spurs
  • Chelsea v Man City/Stoke

I can smell a semi-final, but saying that, I also smelt a win today, so don´t put your house on it, but as long as we can get past Palace and the next match and then avoid Chelsea - we really could have another final on our hands.

All we need now, if we beat Palace, is for Martin O´Neill to win a match in March with Aston Villa.
