    Lots of old league fixtures being recycled, offering opportunities to patronise former rivals.

    Good draw for us, which we'll render irrelevant no doubt.

    Every chance they'll play them in the next round, unless Norwich cause a shock.

    Arrangements have been made (subject to the vagaries of FA Cup kick-off changes) to meet former OTFer World Cup Willie at Newport v Leeds. Yay.

    Bollocks. I was hoping for a good Cup run. Might be able to go, though.

    Mr Tumble apparently
    West Ham are playing Spurs on Thursday 4th Jan meaning the FA CUP games are likely to be Sunday or possibly both on Monday.

    A pox on Sky or BT Sport, whichever is responsible for Thursday night premier league games

    If they do go for Man U - Derby at the expense of one of the infinitely more interesting games elsewhere then I really do give up. This must bring their run of televised FA Cup games to an end.

    If Hereford get through, the BBC must surely give that to John Motson to bring his career full circle.

    Last season when they showed Man Utd v Reading, the best link they could come up with was that Jaap Stam was Reading's manager.
    All the following games have more TV appeal than Man Utd v Derby:

    Liverpool v Everton
    Brighton & Hove Albion v Crystal Palace
    Coventry City v Stoke City
    Nottingham Forest v Arsenal
    Forest Green Rovers or Exeter City v West Bromwich Albion
    Fleetwood or Hereford v Leicester City
    Manchester City v Burnley
    Shrewsbury Town v West Ham United
    Wolverhampton Wanderers v Swansea City
    Fulham v Southampton
    Norwich City v Chelsea

    Newport County v Leeds United and Bolton Wanderers v Huddersfield Town could even be considered as well.

    BT have shown time and again that they don't give a flying fuck about the magic of the cup aspect, so of course they'll show Man Utd - Derby.

    For the first time since 2005, a Manchester United FA Cup match won't be shown live. BBC matches are -

    Friday 5th Jan 19:55 - Liverpool v Everton
    Saturday 12:45 - Fleetwood/Hereford v Leicester
    Sunday 12:00 - Newport v Leeds (BBC1 Wales)
    Sunday 14:00 - Shrewsbury v West Ham

    Those thieving bastards BT are showing -

    Saturday 17:30 - Norwich v Chelsea
    Sunday 16:00 - Forest v Arsenal
    Monday 19:45 - Brighton v Palace

    In the link above but worth highlighting. Brighton v Palace will be a trial of the VAR system :

    he M23 derby is the final third-round fixture to have been chosen, with Brighton and Palace rounding off the action on Monday evening at 7.45pm at the Amex Stadium. Disorder caused by fans around the teams’ recent meeting at the Amex Stadium was described as a “return to the dark days of football” by Sussex police.

    Having announced plans to introduce the VAR system earlier this year, the match will become the first competitive use of the technology in the UK as part of the International Football Association Board’s [IFAB] trial. The technology was first used in November at Wembley Stadium at England’s two senior men’s internationals against Germany and Brazil and it is intended that VARs will then be used for the remainder of the competition at a select number of fixtures.

    “The FA has always been open to trialling new innovations and was heavily involved in the advancement of goal-line technology before it was introduced,” said Andy Ambler, director of professional game relations at The FA.

    “The trialling of the VAR system in this season’s Emirates FA Cup from the third round is a continuation of that and further demonstrates that whilst being the most famous and historic domestic cup competition in the world it is also modern, progressive and innovative.”

    Long story Ray, but it's sufficient to say here that they are a company that I'm glad to now have nothing further to do with.

    Ah, on a personal level dealing with them is a nightmare obviously. I wondered if you meant on a wider level in terms of them broadcasting games.

    Oh shit. So it's not to be a private humiliation for Norwich, then. My boy - an Ipswich fan - was gleefully telling me that Chelsea will win 1000 - 0, and decided to watch the draw on iPlayer again yesterday so he could enjoy the moment all over again.

    Was it not the case that they managed to swing it last season to show a Man Utd game by having a clause whereby if one of the replays had the not-desired-for outcome then they would default to a still less-than-appetising Man Utd game? Not really possible this time but I'm sure they can come up with something.

    Can't see BBC changing the Leicester game; all bias from my point of view aside as both matches are a win:win. Hereford gives a chance to show Ricky George; the lowest ranked team in the draw; phoenix from the flames and the possibility of a huge upset. Fleetwood goes into Vardy overdrive.

    Exactly. Which is why they would need to be more imaginative ...

    What that lad needs is to be made to sit and watch Ipswich losing 7-0 at Chelsea in the 3rd Round just a few years ago.

    All down to Hereford then - the entire history of the FA Cup is on their shoulders.

    Also, they are wearing 1-11, so really this is a fight for football, David vs Philistines.

    And there we have it. First time since 1962-3 someone near me said. Two goals from Jonny Bairstow and out go Hereford.

    That's all the excuse I need to post one of my favourite frozen football clips: FA Cup Round 3 1963, fast forward to 20 minutes to see Tranmere playing in the snow, in white, in black and white.
