    Any tie at home is a decent tie in my view.

    Judging by the first 2 matches, no.

    Southern draw was horrific.

    Blackburn at home gives us half decent chance of progression. More appealling game than Hull.

    Some really good games pulled out there. Hopefully sky will pick two lower league sides at home v Premier League sides for the TV as there are a few there.

    I'm happy to wonder down to Valley Parade to see us v Blackburn considering we could have been away to Barrow as we were pulled out just after that.

    Blackburn have had a good start and we are very local so I expect a few to head across making for a decent crowd.

    Can't see it personally... Fleetwood v Everton, Crawley v Fulham, Colchester v Brentford, Bolton v Villa, Tranmere v Newcastle stand out well before our tie

    Cambridge v Southampton, Forest Green v Brighton and Stockport v Leicester have the lower league team at home to a prem side too.

    It’s an underwhelming draw but winnable if we play a full team and they don’t

    8 goals without conceding, beat Swansea away 3-0, shut out QPR at home, and just drilled Hartlepool 4-0...

    We're going to have our work cut out with this one!

    Quite a few ex Blackburn players in our squad too, chapman, Platt, Smallwood and Hughes being an ex manager. They'll bring a few too, so should be a good crowd.

    Not really underwhelming.
    There were far worse ties.
    A relatively local tie at home against a Championship side who will bring a fair few is far better than going away to Tranmere, Barrow or Shrewsbury which we could easily have drawn.

    They will probably throw a few second teamers in but judging how they dispatched Hartlepool they must be decent Bradley Dack played that match
