FA Cup 3rd round draw


Recommended Posts

its no wonder the fa cup loses its appeal for starters having the draw at 1255pm is a bit odd and for some reason now we have someone who has never played in the fa cup doing the draw. it should be 2 ex players/manager who has done something in the fa cup before.  i must be getting old that i dont get it .

Not the best draw but offers a chance of progressing. 

 

Draw should still be at 5pm on the Saturday though and there should still be as many replays as it takes.  Always was part of the magic of the cup.

Not bothered about the FA Cup - main consideration from Wednesdays perspective is to avoid injuries - this assumes of course that we’re still in with a realistic shout of avoiding relegation.

 
It’s an opportunity for DR to give some fringe players valuable match time and to rest key players such as Bannan, Vaulks and Paterson.

I think these games will be picked for TV -

 

Arsenal v Liverpool 

Sunderland v Newcastle 

Wigan v Man Utd

Gillingham v Sheff Utd

I'd assume Wrexham will be on TV too if they get through.

 

They could play the Dog and Duck in a park kickabout and the game would be live. 

 

Because we're all really interested in their story apparently.

Shrewsbury v Wrexham is a bit of a rivalry I believe. Just across the border from.each other.

Showing my age but they used to be on a Monday lunchtime, radio only ! 

 

 

With you @Baldrick.

 

Unless @Utah Owl is really old and is reminiscing about the 1st cup draw in 1872

In the eighties my mum used to be tasked with listening to the draw and then giving me a note with Wednesday’s  draw over the school fence. Those too young to remember the eighties might be surprised to find out that she often had to do this several times between January and April as we often did quite well. I think a  Blade used to get his mum to do the same, but for her it was a once a year thing. lol
