West Stand BCS.
Doubt any Bees fan still alive has seen us play at Goodison. Should be great day out.
Haven't seen us play at Goodison, but saw them play Tottenham I think it was, on a Sunday.
@HaylingBee74 will be able to help me out, I'm sure he was there too.

They must get the full quota for Everton FA Cup tie whatever thT figure is...... ..... I remember Liverpool '89 ...... we filled the away end and still had loads of Bees fans who missed out.....

Split-minded about this...

On the one hand it's a nice ground and I can't make the summer game, so it's good to be able to go.

On the other, trains are expensive and we'll need to field a good side to win.

Trains for the Saturday looked reasonable enough when I checked yesterday

I find it difficult to believe that a pay-TV broadcaster would find this an attractive enough match for the Friday evening slot, given the other options.

Only a couple or 4 of letters away from being a repeat of the 84 Cup final too. Amazing.

They do sound like they might be flat roofed murder pubs though.

Agree but with Liverpool at home that weekend the two games don't have to be Saturday and Sunday, they could be Friday and Saturday if both especially Liverpool prefer not to play their game on Sunday.

But the FA Cup is on BBC and ITV this year, no pay TV overlords to satisfy.
Still hard to picture it being a prime time event on either channel though.

The FTA channels normally fall over themselves backwards to put all Premier League games on as they usually don't get them.

True....but there are PL games and PL games, and this is Everton v Brentford, not Liverpool v Anybody.

Anyone know when the fixture dates will get confirmed?
Normally I would expect everything to be sorted by this Friday but there is an extra week this time

Normally just a 3 week gap between R3 and R 4 but now its four weeks

So they could spend more time deciding on the 6 matches for Tv ??

Basically it is split into 3 groups in my opinion

Certain to be on Live
Kidderminster Harriers v West Ham United
Nottingham Forest v Leicester City

Good Chance of Being On Live
Bournemouth v Boreham Wood
Chelsea
v Plymouth Argyle
Everton v Brentford
Manchester United
/Aston Villa v Middlesbrough
Tottenham Hotspur v Brighton and Hove Albion
Liverpool v Cardiff City
Manchester City v Fulham

Most Likely to be Ignored for Live TV
Crystal Palace v Hartlepool United
Huddersfield Town v Barnsley
Peterborough United v Queens Park Rangers
Cambridge United v Luton Town
Southampton v Coventry City
Stoke City v Wigan Athletic
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Norwich City

True. I assume that game would slide to Wednesday in priority to a televised PL match involving Everton though.

Particularly as there are no fans allowed in Wales at the moment so wouldn't inconvenience anyone travelling if the rules stay the same (not that has ever stopped them before).

EFL televised games haven't been announced for that midweek yet. should have been announced by 4th Jan but shock horror they haven't - per EFL Official Website - TV Games

True and this gives more reason for Friday night to be used. I think if it suits, a non TV Friday night game could be scheduled and I've a feeling it will be, if so most likely ours with Liverpool then playing the Saturday.

Unless TV dictates I doubt there'd be an appetite nor would it be possible without an knock on effect to play a game on Sunday and obviously Liverpool/Everton can't both play at home on the Saturday.

Everton v Brentford should not (and will not, in my opinion) be selected for live TV.

Cambridge v Luton should, though. That is exactly what The FA Cup is all about.
