    Ah, OK, many thanks; they're 3 weeks earlier this year then, followed by a gap of 5 and half weeks to the QFs.

    Last season's FA Cup was the first in which fifth round ties were played midweek, taking place the week before the first Covid related postponements.

    I have a feeling it is permanent.

    Having just seen the lineups, I'd be stunned if we got close to that. 3-0 at best I'd say

    14 games, and no draws after 90 minutes.

    Apparently I should be able to watch the final this season. If, of course, it happens...

    2-0 a respectable defeat. Not too unhappy.

    Tbf but for some last ditch heroics Shrewsbury would have been well beaten tonight.

    Ward-Prowse gets a goal to finally kill it

    Cumdog on for a centre half. Adventurous or what? Expect either a spectacular 25-yrd top corner piledriver or a golden 1-on-1 blazed out for a throw-in.

    Edit x-p with PT

    They've brought on the Cum-dog! 5 minutes to go.

    Other than the goal which was slightly unfortunate, a solid performance from Salop so far tonight, but I'm struggling to see an equaliser. More likely a 2nd for Saints on the break. Still we're giving it a go. Just not quite the required accuracy when we see an opening.

    After our keeper conceded from a goal kick tonight (Newport's only shot on target) I bet Man City are shitting themselves about coming to Whaddon Road on Saturday.

    if you aren't watching Southampton v Shrewsbury you won't see Fraser Forster's muttonchops.

    The FA can overrule the EPL on fixtures? Leeds might welcome having a pause, though.

    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

    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...
