MK Dons don't count though. The only magic would be seeing their horrid club getting robbed of a place at Wembley in the 93rd minute with the most dodgy call in football history. I agree with the rest, and just the general atmosphere of Brentford vs Chelsea today should be evidence enough of why the cup is still prestigious and gives us amazing moments season after season.
As for potential ties: please no Leeds or City. Played both in cups recently, Leeds more so needs to go 2-3 seasons or more till the next tie to restore that bit of animosity and hunger for the tie.
Luton vs Millwall would be highly interesting given the 1985 riot and history between both teams ever since.
Luton away please, only because Brentford won't get past Chelsea at The Bridge. Team we're not likely to face anytime soon, decent-very good home support, proper old school ground, non league vs premier league. The perfect cup tie.
