Bolton Wanders will be the away team in the next round of the FA Cup, and they will play the winner of Monday night's match between AFC Wimbledon and Liverpool.  Shortly after the draw was made several very confident Bolton Supporters took to Twitter.

That was Lion of Vienna Suite contributor Dan Murphy.  Good lad.  Chris Manning also looked at it in a practical way:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>We&#39;re due a cup win over Liverpool if my numbers are right....1993 11 years later = 2004.....11 years later = 2015??? <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/bwfc?src=hash">#bwfc</a></p>&mdash; Chris Manning (@19manning83) <a href="https://twitter.com/19manning83/status/552188838781939714">January 5, 2015</a></blockquote>

Now that is statistical analysis!  Others were going with hearts over heads:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Liverpool away would be fun. <a href="https://twitter.com/ZachClough">@ZachClough</a> to give Steven Gerrard the runaround in his final FA Cup game.</p>&mdash; James Derbyshire (@JDerbyshireBWFC) <a href="https://twitter.com/JDerbyshireBWFC/status/552188788857118723">January 5, 2015</a></blockquote>

That is a true statement, potentially.

Long story short: We will be watching the Monday night match very closely, and many supporters are happy to take on the club from Anfield.  Me, I am a bit more practical.  I would love to see AFC Wilmbledon get a famous victory tonight, then get tonked on the 24th by the Mighty Bolton Wanderers!
