Well to be honest Kris all of the top sides will be (or should be) playing their reserves.

I can see Liverpool playing their reserves again, just like last season.

Grr what is it with Chelsea drawing Prem teams! It wuld have been nice to get a lower league side and then see how well we do against them, or how well they do against us. Hopefully next round we will.

To be honest I feel sorry for Charlton because, not getting ahead of my self, but I though that this cup they would have had a nice run in. Ah Well :)

I hope we dont do what we did against Exter in the FA cup last year, we will probably play reserves but should still win easily in my eyes.

Chelsea always seem to struggle when they get a lower league team i think, like Scarbrough and Scunthorpe you didnt really trash them like you should have.

I have a feeling that we are going to put out are reserves, and maybe even lose and that would just end a terrible week for us. :(

Your reserveres do ok Jack as long as you dont stick Traore in with them. Hopefully this year Bob Foy will get a run out.

If only we could score :D

We must of had about 20 shots at goal but only about 6 or 7 on target. Speroni made a few good saves though so all credit to him and palace. It's nice to know you got knocked out by the winners ;)

Yup, from what I have been reading on Sky Sports our team is going to be very, very young.
