Patrick Smalley (Leicester City fan) says...

All these snide comments from so-called football fans are a disgrace and insulting to the FA. After all the FA proved its integrity by being too naive to realise one needs to buy the rights to get the World cup recently. Come on you lot the draw has been public for over 100 years and has always thrown up such fixtures. For decades the call was always "lucky Arsenal" as they invariably got easy home ties. Jim Morris asks about the gate receipts, well Jim unless things have changed it was always split 3 ways with a third to each club and to the FA.

Why are Loserpool fans always whining about Man Utd getting penalty decisions? Controversial decisions are part of the game and you should just get on with it.. Don't u guys remember how Ngog dived to win a penalty against Birmingham last season??? U scousers just stink of hypocrisy.. Face it, u guys are a team of the past living on past reputations.. Even your beloved Torres wants to leave the club for greener fields.. I firmly believe that Liverpool will not qualify for europe next season and without europe to attract any top players, Liverpool will be engaged in the relegation battle next season..

Man Utd get it easy? 1st round vs Liverpool, United rarely get an easy FA Cup tie, compared to their noisy neighbours, Leicester City, Notts County? they struggled with both, face it this is great for both UTD and CRAWLEY, United get non-Prem opposition and Crawley get a huge day out

As soon as I saw the draw I knew rival fans would complain about how easy the draw is and I was proved right. Grow up lads...on paper it is an easy draw but that's what is special about the FA Cup, making dreams come true, playing the world's best teams. I just hope Fergie plays his 'A ' Team instead of gambling like he did on Saturday! I want Crawley to play with passion and desire and make it an interesting match. Have fun, lads!!!

Please Fergie give Crawley the dream and put out a strong side, this is the only chance that some of their players will have to come to Old Trafford - a lifetimes dream, let's make their dreams a reality for the sake of foootball.

John Coleman (Liverpool fan) says...

Great for Crawley but typical United. They finally win a match without a dodgy penalty decision and they get the easy draw AT HOME. No refs paid this time, just the organisers

Jim Morris (Kilmarnock fan) says...

Can someone explain the gate cut with regards to the financial split. I would imagine this tie would keep Crawley afloat for a good spell and give the players a tremendous experience in the FA cup. One to dine out on on for a while..

Peter Fieldman (Tottenham Hotspur fan) says...

How do MU manage to do it? Another home tie and one where they can leave their first team on the bench to rest while their main championship contenders have to work so hard. Infuriating.

Kevin Thistlethwaite (Manchester United fan) says...

I know the other team fans will be saying United get it easy, but this is what the FA cup is all about; Crawley get a game at Old Trafford!!! fantastic for them and I have no doubt they will give it their best shot.

John Hughes (Notts County fan) says...

What an absolute fix Crawley going to Old Trafford! I wondered why the bookies wouldn't take bets on predicting the FA cup draw.
