After Manchester United`s victory over Huddersfield this evening, the draw for the quarter finals took place.
Strangely the draw took place even though two fixtures have yet to be played.
Doing the FA Cup sixth round draw now is an absolute joke. It`s two days and two big ties before the fifth round is concluded. You are killing the FA Cup. Killing it. Absolutely ridiculous.
