The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
Sunday@11.40hrs.

I'm hoping the Kidderminster Harriers manager isn't told about this thread and pins it up in the dressing room for inspiration, but fuck it I'm going early..

So who do ya want? The lowest ranked side left at home, or is there another tie that you fancy?

"Without getting too geeky (hard to comprehend for most, I understand) - the chances of the first two balls being drawn out of the 3rd round hat being "Big 6 teams is about 0.75% - 9.4% for the first ball being a Big 6 team then 7.5% for the 2nd ball being a Big 6 team.

There's an awful lot of permutations in that 3rd round draw. 64 teams, which I thing the grown-ups define as "64 factorial", being 64*63*62*...all the way down to 3*2*1. See how far you get on your calculator with that. Get to 61 (4 steps, one more that Lynard Skynard demanded) and it's almost twice the number of people killed in the Holocaust."

That's right for the number of distinct draws, but wrong for the number of ties. Many of the draws in that 64! result in exactly the same ties.

If there were only four teams left, imaginatively called A, B, C and D (and in your Cup competition, the semi-finals were played on the grounds of the clubs odd in the order they come out of the hat) the draws

ABCD and CDAB would result in the same ties.

Because of this, there are only 12 = 4!/2! possible ties, not 24 = 4!.

Back to 64 clubs - there are 64! = 1.3 x 10^89 draws (orders in which the balls can be picked) but these can only result in 64!/32! different ties = 4.8 x 10^53 (counting, e.g., West Ham vs Southampton as different from Southampton vs West Ham).

I’m guessing that’s the whole end with a segregation.

Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
They could give us more tickets if they wanted but most clubs choose not to,a bit like spurs did to us,when the ground was no where near full.I suppose a very large away contingent and a small home crowd can somewhat alter the atmosphere and maybe deminishig home advantage.
Having said that our lot would give up half the ground if it ment a sellout.

Bit disappointed with the allocation tbh can’t imagine they’ll get a full house thought we’d get more.
More importantly I’m not sure I’ll get one now with my shitty PP

FA Cup away allocations are 15% so around 5,000

Saints we’re good value for their win against us, and against tottenham. They’re playing really well at the moment. I’ll be delighted if we get past them, but that will not be easy.

Thanks tea, a good insightful post on here for a change.

Strange Forest play on the Monday. Wonder when the draw for the QF will be? And no, I'm not starting the thread before the game :-)

Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
We usually do well at Southampton and being away should suit us better.
Not many games in February, March with Europe is harder.
Any game would be tricky.

Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
Southampton appears to be a winnable but tough tie, although after Kidderminster who knows any more.

Hopefully Dave and the team learned their lesson but I’m not so sure.


Glad we dodged all the bigger clubs, but can’t help but become curious how they constantly appear to get a home tie and avoid each other in the early rounds….

Mike Oxsaw 6:21 Mon Feb 7
Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
What assumptions do you make when watching something "live" on TV?

Most studio broadcasts have in them a time delay of up to 5 seconds in order that they can edit out offensive/libellous shit (note that I said studio, not outside broadcasts). I think all "live", with audience, TV game shows are actually pre-recorded a day or two in advance.

You can be watching a stream thinking it's "live" and it's actually a minute or two behind "real time" but without a reference from elsewhere you will neither know or care.

And without that independent reference, you have absolutely no way of knowing something is truly live as broadcast unless you are actually there. If you DO have such a reference, please share it with us all to this can be put to bed once and for all.

That being said, why stop at a one minute delay, or a couple of minutes?

The question posed was as to HOW it could be done and I offered up a possibility, not, sadly for some, a cast iron proof of what was going on.

How likely that is what happens - or if rigging happens at all - is a separate question.

Exactly. I wonder what they would have said to Andrew Cole beforehand yesterday, and how much the back hander was :-)

Still, it's annoying that the bigger clubs do seem to get kind draws a lot.

Manuel 4:54 Mon Feb 7
Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
I'm with 1Billy, I think away could suit us better, but this is the type of game we could lose 1-0.

Alfs 3:04 Mon Feb 7
Re: The Emirates FA Cup 5th round draw - Southampton away
The thing about these conspiracy theories about VAR and rigged draws is that it would take many people to be involved, though just one to whistle blow.

Which is why they're ill thought out bullshit.
