FA Cup Quarterfinals: Watford await...someone

We're not even done with the fifth round yet!

The draw for the quarterfinals of the FA Cup was held today, and it looks like the ping pong ball marked WATFORD came out next to the ping pong ball marked ARSENAL OR HULL CITY, which admittedly is an odd thing to put on a ping pong ball, but still.

It's a home tie, which means that if Arsenal beat Hull at the KC Stadium on March 8, Watford will be coming to the Emirates on a date somewhere between the 11th and the 14th; chances are Arsenal's Premier League match against West Brom will get moved to, uh, some other date.

This wasn't really a fixture that Arsenal wanted, given how crowded things are about to get on ye olde calendar, but if yesterday was anything to go by, they have the depth to cope; if they can just convince Eldin Jakupovic to be human again for 90 minutes, it could be a fun day out.
