Shrewsbury will be loving the arrogance. Also we have about 18k st holders, Liverpool would get 15% as per fa cup rules. Wouldn’t make general sale

September 1979, we played Forest in the old 1st division. On my birthday. 1:1. And again in the league cup a few weeks later. 

Jimmy Mann 85 yarder past Shilton? 👀

Ah, forgot about this- though I thought it was about 15%-20%?

That's the whole Atyeo then though!

Could be an anti climax , Liverpool kids no ones heard of and on a Sunday.  Renowned for no atmosphere!

Think fans could- no should- be able to rouse themselves for a game like this, possibly in front of the cameras- Sunday or not.

Let's face it if we ever reach the PL, we'll have to get used to Sunday games...see why it's an excuse but atmosphere wise I don't think it's the be all and end all (not a fan however).

I wondered if it would be Forest. Thanks for posting. Must be a rarity for us. Don't imagine it's happened often.

The lesser European competition I know, but weren't Man Utd the Europa League champions when we beat them?

Yes they were. Zlatans last goal for them was against us.

The only downside is that this game will be on a Sunday.

Liverpool have a game on the Thursday prior to the FA cup weekend. Then they have a game on the Wednesday the week after, so it won’t be on the Monday night either.

Absolute nightmare scenario 🤦‍♂️

Genuinely hope Shrewsbury win the replay.

Can’t paper over the cracks with a plum cup draw I’m afraid 🤷‍♂️

Shrewsbury will be as excited by this as us, and are unlucky overall not to be through already.

Would put it at no better than 50/50, but would be nice if it came about.

Way we are playing, we won't beat Shrewsbury. 

Which, you would expect a lot of (football) fans to know, certainly on current form.

I have had already had 3 plastic Liverpool fans bell me to say, 'seen the draw? You should beat Shrewsbury'.

Which has been met with me going off on one about just how poorly we are playing, our lack of striking options and ending the calls with, if you were trying to find out if I might be able to get you a ticket, suggest you tap up your Shrewsbury mates first.

Seeing that the Wolves game is Thursday 20:00, even if Bears moved fixture, Liverpool might not agree to Saturday due to 48 hour rule.  That World Club cup rearrangement of the West Ham game means Monday out too.

Where’d you get that 18k figure from Tom? Didn’t realise it had got that high.

It’s about 14k, but Bears / Members will take it to a v.large number.

I was sat in the Dolman, down that end, the East End end. I was a young 'un. I wish someone had said: "It won't always be like this."

I was in the away end, saw it all the way

I get the negativity but only thing I’d say is that this team does seem to look much better on the road.

Just got the first text from an 'old friend' enquiring about tickets. When this happened in 2017 for the Man U game I offered to meet them at our next away game, Sunderland, to discuss. Strangely they couldn't make it. 

On this occasion though, I'm inclined to refer them directly to the Shrewsbury Town away tickets page.

Who do we want in the fifth round?

Looking at the draw, a lot of Premiershit teams have tough draws, so this could be our year.

TV coverage might even mention us in the pre-match build up.

18k sounds high to me. As per @Davefevs I thought we were around the 14k mark. I don’t know though.

@TomF?

I would have guessed 15,500

Yup 👍

I’d rather see us put the effort into our excruciating league campaign thanks.

If we play a full strength team in the Shrewsbury replay, my ST will go in the recycling bin 👍
