Well, the FA Cup can through up some fixtures. And what an opportunity awaits the Seasiders. If Michael Appleton can navigate Blackpool through the replay with Fulham on his self-appointed cabbage field, a mouth watering tie either away to Manchester United or West Ham United awaits.

Of course Blackpool have form against these two teams. A final day of the season loss at Old Trafford in the Premiership season condemned Blackpool to relegation. One year later, the prospect of a return to the promised land was snatched away at Wembley by Allardyce’s West Ham.

Of the two, most fans will probably hope for a tie against Manchester United, either way, there is no an added incentive to get past Fulham. Will the cabbage patch help to hinder that quest? Time will tell.
