    Adlab, because I have nothing better to do, I’ve just done as you suggested and looked through this site https://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/man-city/2014-15/fixtures-and-results.html?no-amp=1

    I went back through to 13/14 season to present and counted 16 home games and 16 away games in total with both cups included. The levels of the teams faced are really mixed too.

    In fact, season 14/15 City had only home games in the cups with the opponents being Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle, Sheffield Wednesday again and Middlesbrough. No doubt there are plenty of tougher draws in there too but I honestly think that’s just the luck of the draw.

    I think we all at times like to think out clubs are hard done by and that there’s an agenda against them but I I just can’t see anything in the draws over recent years to suggest anything is untoward.

    I’m not usually bothered by the draws but this one stinks. Pre recorded, really? That’s just not on and a joke. Then boom out pops Utd st home to by far the weekist side left in. I’m saying nothing directly but indirectly that’s amazing it was allowed to stand, it’s not cricket that guys lol

    Who cares though, I see Arse, City, Utd and Chelsea in the semis which is a dream for the sponsors

    Surely that should read “which is a requirement for the sponsors”? 🙂

    Today is the first time this month United are going to be playing at home and today is the first time City are playing away this month. Where’s the conspiracy in regards to that? If United had 4 games at home on the trot and City had 4 away games on the trot, I can imagine a fair few would have a moan and cry conspiracy.

    Have to agree with gjblues, we had a very good run of home cup fixtures in the 3-4 yr period. This draw stinks mind just to get the remaining bigger teams in the semis. Also I don’t understand what bloody Twitter has to do with a cup draw.

    I don’t buy the conspiracy theory but not for the first time the draw was handled really badly and there’s no room in the game imo for pre recorded draws.

    The draw should be live either on TV or the radio and shouldn’t be drawn by Rugby players and Cricketer’s.

    Personaly, the draw does not bother me, if you set out to win it it a game at a time and you have a team that is capable, then it really does not matter Home or away.. HOWEVER, if there is any sniff of anything untowards..it need closer scrutinity….TV wants attarctive draws…however they come and there is the problem that is also why they mess about with fixtures and KO times
