    Southampton v Shrewsbury rescheduled for Tuesday night. Leeds will have the night off.

    Honestly can't believe they bumped a Premier League fixture for this.

    No, we were on BBC 1 in 2006 when we played Newcastle in the 4th round as well. That was a Saturday lunchtime game and I remember it being bloody freezing. Newcastle won 2-0, but we played well although once they got their second they took their foot off the gas.

    Alan Shearer needed a goal to break the Newcastle goal scoring record and missed an absolute sitter near the end - he scored a week later at St James's and admitted afterwards that he missed on purpose because he wanted to score it at home.

    I don't think we've been on terrestrial TV any other time - I can probably list the times we have been on TV in our history....

    May 1998 - FA Trophy Final - Beat Southport 1-0 - Sky
    Sept 1999 - Division 3 - Lost 1-0 to Shrewsbury - Sky
    Feb 2001 - Divisioon 3 - Lost 2-0 to Chesterfield - Sky
    May 2002 - Division 3 Playoff Final - Beat Rushden 3-1 - ITV Sport
    Jan 2006 - FA Cup 4th Round - Lost 2-0 to Newcastle - BBC 1
    May 2006 - League 2 Playoff Semi 1st leg - Beat Wycombe 2-1 - Sky
    May 2006 - League 2 Playoff Semi 2nd Leg - Drew 0-0 with Wycombe - Sky
    May 2006 - League 2 Playoff Final - Beat Grimsby 1-0 - Sky
    May 2012 - League 2 Playoff Semi 1st Leg - Beat Torquay 2-0 - Sky
    May 2012 - League 2 Playoff Semi 2nd Leg - Beat Torquay 2-1 - Sky
    May 2012 - League 2 Playoff Final - Lost 2-0 to Crewe - Sky
    Dec 2012 - FA Cup 2nd Round - Drew 1-1 with Hereford - ESPN
    Jan 2013 - FA Cup 3rd Round - Lost 5-1 to Everton - ESPN
    May 2013 - League 2 Playoff Semi 1st Leg - Lost 1-0 to Northampton - Sky
    May 2013 - League 2 Playoff Semi 2nd Leg - Lost 1-0 to Northampton - Sky
    Aug 2015 - National League - Beat Wrexham 2-1 - BT Sport
    Oct 2015 - National League - Beat Grimsby 1-0 - BT Sport
    Jan 2016 - National League - Beat Dover 2-1 - BT Sport
    March 2016 - National League - Lost 2-1 to Wrexham - BT Sport
    April 2016 - National League - Beat Grimsby 3-1 - BT Sport
    Aug 2017 - League Cup 2nd Round - Lost 2-0 to West Ham - Sky
    June 2020 - League 2 Playoff Semi 1st Leg - Beat Northampton 2-0 - Sky
    June 2020 - League 2 Playoff Semi 2nd Leg - Lost 3-0 to Northampton - Sky

    We were also on Sportsnight in 1996 when we played Peterborough in an FA Cup 1st round replay - losing 3-2 after extra time, and we were on Match of the Day as an extended highlights game for our FA Cup 1st round defeat to Lincoln City (1-0). I think we actually went into that game as favourites as we were the home team flying high in the Conference and had made the 3rd round the previous year taking Reading to a replay and extra-time, and Lincoln were rock bottom of Division 2.

    We've actually been on telly more times than I thought - when I started the list I thought it was 4 or 5 times...

    Agree that drawing 2 rounds has spoilt it, especially as there's no fans.

    ​​​​​​They might as well have drawn it all.

    there will at least be 2 quarter finalists from outside the big boys - the Burnley/Fulham/Bournemouth/Crawley set, and Sheff Utd/Plymouth/Millwall/Bristol C

    Manchester City at Whaddon Road.

    Reminiscent of my first ever Cheltenham game in August 1994 when we lost 3-2 to a Manchester City XI. A little gutted that I won't be able to go - for obvious reasons - but this is big for us and the players deserve it for the joy they've brought us in the last couple of years.

    Chorley beat Wolves in the cup in 86/87 so on the head to head they'll go in as favourites.

    Chorley are Wolves and Arsenal away from being in the sixth round.

    For the life of me I can't imagine what the big televised 4th round tie out of that lot is going to be.

    He's 34 (which is older than I thought), which means he's nearly at the end of his career - and younger than me!!!

    Andy Williams almost belongs in Is he still playing? I know Hereford supporters and I've been to quite a few of their games with them over the years. I remember Andy Williams from the times when Middlesbrough were winning things and playing in Europe, and that's a long time ago.

    Andy Williams needs to focus more. He spends too much time watching the girls go by.

    I'm sure I mentioned in the summer how we were doing our own version of "getting the band back together" by trying to sign all of Donny's promotion winners from a couple of years back.

    Seriously though, Alfie was fantastic when he came in originally, but dropped off considerably after the initial lockdown and his confidence has been on the floor all season so far. I'm hoping that goal relights the fire in him though. He was fantastic from start to finish yesterday and the goal really was the least he deserved.

    Blair has looked decent at times, but not enough in my view - especially given the reputation he came in with and Andy Williams is a great squad player. I can't recall if he's still our top scorer, but whilst you can see he's trying, there's something missing in him, however, he never lets the side down.

    Draw: "The FA Cup fourth round draw is scheduled to take place from 7.10pm GMT on Monday, January 11, 2021. The FA Cup fifth round draw will follow, with a scheduled start time of 7.23pm GMT."

    I think this is a bad move. If you know your fifth round opponent is Man City away, that fourth round game in an empty stadium against a team in the same tier as you suddenly seems less essential. I don't understand why the FA would chuck away the value of fifth round draw day, which we looked forward to greatly in our youth.

    First time in the 4th round since 2006. It may have taken extra time, but Cheltenham were in control from the moment Mansfield scored in the 4th minute. The fact it took so long to equalise and then extra time to win only goes to show just how bad our forwards are at the moment.

    With the new owners, winning a cup game and you lot liking my lot, this is all getting very disconcerting.

    Only because I'm a total geek for Cup draws I'm intrigued how they're going to do the fourth and fifth round draws together tomorrow. Will it be each fourth round tie assigned a number 1-16 that then goes into a new hat for the fifth round, or are they going to play it safe and just say up front of doing the fourth round draw that in the fifth round, winners of tie 1 will be at home to winners of tie 2, etc?
