Not a draw of choice but some positives:

1) revenge for opening day

2) Winnable even if after a replay

3) West ham always have a big crowd even if on TV so good revenue for the club after 12k gate v QPR

Confident we will be in the 5th round

I'll settle for the result when we played 'em in the mid sixties.

3-3 at Upton Park [John Byrom hat trick] followed by a 4-1 drubbing at Ewood Park in the replay [Andy McEvoy hat trick] Bobby Moore and all.

Anyone else go to Upton Park for that game?

Naff draw to be honest. Long way to go, all prem affair and a difficult tie as well. Esp annoying as the 2 draws around us were nob enders away and colchester away! Oh well , its just its been a long time since we've had a decent away tie against a lower league opponent!

That's us out of the cup then. We NEVER (OK, once) do well at West Ham - since 1990 : P12 W1 D2 L9 . If we're incredibly lucky and get em back to Ewood, we'll win - in the same period P11 W8 D2 L1. It's a home banker, concentrate on the Carling Cup then!

I couldn't believe that game! I was so up for it, I couldn't wait to be born so I could be a Rover!

Unfortunately the big fellah disagreed and I entered this world in 1980.

Good game though.

Wasn't at Upton Park but was on the Riverside for the replay: cracking night in a nightmare relegation season.

The draw was not kind to Rovers: West Ham away is a very difficult tie.

We have to go there convinced we are going to win it.

If nothing else, Hughes will get that part right.

The difference in preparation and attitude from 18 months ago is immense. Hopefully our fans may start to notice that and start coming back.

Hopefully it wont get moved for TV.

Personaly I think its a crap draw away in at WHU. Ok we could get revenge for the opening game this season and we could win it. However I would have prefered a smaller club, somewhere I've never been to. Or even a home game .

Pretty nasty draw.  West Ham are strong at home and will take some beating even if they've had a bit of a blip lately.  Hopefully we can take them to a replay and beat them at Ewood.

Im sure West Ham have lost 4 or 5 home games in a row??

Not too bad a draw IMO. I fancy us to take them in the replay!

Bad draw. In fact only by getting a big team, other than birmingham, could it have been worse.

West Ham will definately think its winnable, in fact it's their only real shot of glory. Not a team I'd want to face in this situation. Added to which two semis may well give west ham the edge.

Would take a draw if offered and get them back up here.
