This is how fans reacted to the FA Cup Fourth Round TV selections…

@ConnorSwales69: ah the love in with Wrexham continues of course

@J_Sim_91: Absolute disgrace – why isn’t Walsall Leicester on the TV?

@StrawHatter85: Nice to see premier league clubs make up nearly every game, must need the money….

@LeeCarman7: Man Utd v Reading and Brighton v Liverpool/Wolves 😂😂

@AnthonyAshton1: Imagine my shock that Man United are on again 😂😂

@stephenbowie1: Best tie of the round and they put it on a Friday night 🙄

@chriscurleyman: ITV4! Absolute joke kick off.

@Ben_Pitman: Man United reading on tele hahahah

@richardpjackson: @WFCOfficial v @LCFC not selected for TV coverage but kicking off at 12:30 on the Saturday. Pretty disappointed with this #saddlers #UTS 🔴⚪️🟢

@reece91x: Bore off 😴

@Chamboman: Man Utd v Reading over Walsall v Leicester 😂😂 Magic of the FA cup 🙄

@FodWeTrust: @itvfootball you don’t have to always show united vs championship club at old Trafford

@KyleHusted24: Get out of here man

@tommms: Man Utd Vs Reading. Who on earth wants to watch that!

@MikeyMcMahon: “Magic of the cup” 😂😂😂

@colin11776: What a joke of a selection. Who wants to watch reserve Premier league teams

@JamesHooper__: Finally a weekend FA Cup tie but once again an 8pm KO ffs. If we were ever to get a Sat 3pm KO then I thought United Vs Reading would be that. #MUFC

@wfcbanksy: Fucking Joke. Walsall/Accrington or Boreham Wood not on against higher league opposition …. no wonder themagic of the FA cup is dying

@Hero_Taylor9: If there was ever a more ‘spirit of the FA Cup’ tie than Walsall vs. Leicester (D2 vs. PL) and both channels fail to pick it. Absolute fucking disgrace, this competion is ruined

@APMUFC: 8pm kick off 👋🏻

@fboden4: Fuck off wheres the Grimsby game no wonder why people pay for IPTV because you’re all fucking useless

@Matt_Saddler: Maybe im Biased but how the hell hasn’t Walsall v Leicester been picked over some of these!?

@FuryFadez: Shock…. Liverpool, united, Spurs, city and arsenal all on. How about letting some of the lower leagues clubs that aren’t on tv every fucking week get on!? FA wants to help smaller clubs financially but only the big ones get on tv. Absolute farce. #maketherichricher #facup

@jackdawgriffin: Walsall V Leicester gets snubbed over Wrexham V Sheffield United you love to see it heck I’d go as far as to say Wigan/Luton V Grimsby is more worthy than potentially getting Brighton V Wolves

@Ali_Mac90: Biggest farce of an organisation going. Half 12 kick off on a Saturday & not even on TV!

@JonnyDrury_Star: Preston/Spurs and Brighton against Liverpool/Wolves over a potential giantkilling of Walsall v Leicester. Is it a surprise that people continue to go off the FA Cup

@jarleth_eaton: I mean, there’s absolutely no reason why United v Reading should ever have been picked. Especially over Walsall v Leicester which would have been a massive pay day for Walsall. Hopefully on the Red Button if the KO is 12.30.

@Nick_Whittaker: Man Utd at home to Reading chosen over Walsall v Leicester. What a joke decision @itvfootball

@PlanetFPLPod: Chelsea v Liverpool can’t be arranged into the second midweek in GW21 unless Liverpool lose to Wolves on Tuesday, as Chelsea play Fulham in the league the following Friday. It was always an unlikely for that week

@josh_seward: Kids want to go to a United game this season, thought this would be a perfect opportunity.. and now they’ve slapped it on TV for absolutely no reason and given it an 8pm kick off. ITV4 FFS. Fuck off @ITV @EmiratesFACup

@groundhopper23: How is Man Utd v Reading a more interesting option than Walsall v Leicester or potentially Boreham Wood or Accrington v Leeds? Give me strength.

@rjb_1998: 6pm kickoff for Preston Vs Tottenham, very funny, especially as a 5:30pm kickoff would give spurs fans time to get the last train back to London which they likely miss with 6pm

@caldini4: Aye cheers can’t wait for all the 10:30pm trains from Manchester to Reading
