Twitter users reacted to the latest FA Cup Fifth Round TV selections

@WattyRacing: FA Cup rounds should not be held midweek apart from replays

@Mousey_Lee: So if we get past Leeds, we face a PL team on a midweek evening game…. Great for fans that work and have kids at school. No chance being able to go to it πŸ˜₯. What happened to the Fa Cup being played only on Weekends? (apart from replays) @EmiratesFACup

@JakeAGriff: Midweek.. magic of the cup!

@_aarontoubian: What an absolute snoozefest

@DuncWain: Don’t you love how they think about the fans

@Jessaroo1881: 8pm on a Wednesday?! The FA are having a laugh.

@MitomaSZN: Wolves away on a Wednesday night, fuck that

@rookery_99: After watching the shitfest on Wednesday, I doubt we’ll be there πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #watfordfc

@CCFCRJ: Our fixtures have been horrendous for those with younger kids. Monday night FFS πŸ™„

@andymhunt3: We are on the tele again. Maidstone are massive.

@joegibney15: The dreaded “midweek round”…

@LeeJR___: Midweek FA Cup 🀒
