Charlton’s FA Cup Ties Over The Last 10 Years

No offence to Blackburn, but this year’s 3rd round draw is hardly very inspiring.  It means that we’ll have played them 7 times in 3 seasons.  But then, it’s Charlton so we shouldn’t expect anything really interesting.  To put it into context, below are the 23 FA Cup ties we’ve played in the last ten seasons.  In those 23 ties, we’ve been drawn against Championship opposition eight times (35%), we’ve been drawn against opposition from the same division eight times (35%), but we’ve only faced Premiership opposition 3 times.  If the (completely unfounded) rumours are true that The FA heats the balls to get the ties it wants, then Charlton’s balls are well overdue a good baking!
