Can I feel a bit uncomfortable about the appointment of:

1) A Manchester born/based referee for a FA Cup Quarter-Final in Manchester against Manchester United
2) The same referee as we had in the last round

Didn't they have any other referees available?

(PS We haven't had Jarred Gillett for ages)

Im sure this has been gone over multiple times, but as kavanagh supports neither united or city, this shouldn't be an issue.

He also doesn't live in Manchester in any case so isn't based there.  Being born somewhere does not mean you will support the team there. I was not born in Bournemouth yet they have been my team from birth, was taken to my fist game at about 2 weeks old & grew up supporting them. I didn't even move to the area until my 30's.
For my sins i support Aston Villa and have never lived within 120 miles of Villa Park, i could quote that man utd fans are always taunted as coming from London by opposing fans.
