The FA Cup fifth round draw, didn’t pitch any of the ‘Big Guns’ together or away from home.
With the FA Cup being a major part of the BBC’s live football broadcasting schedule, they were disappointed with the Fifth Round Draw. None of the favourites were drawn together and the favourites were also selected to play at home.
BBC and Sky share the rights to broadcast the FA Cup games live. The BBC get first choice of the games, Sky get the second choice and then the BBC also get to choose games three and four.
The BBC are now appealing to the public to help them decide which games they should choose to broadcast (BBC appeal).
Manchester United V Reading and Arsenal or Bolton V Blackburn are the safe options, but what would you choose?
