FA Cup

I must say how much I enjoyed watching the BBC coverage of Maltby Mains v Frickley in the FA Cup this afternoon. Took me back to the days of proper football - almost!

Was thay on the red button Elmo? I had a spell watching the rugby league challenge cup games on the red button - real amatuer, small crowd games. Something about it feels more real.

sorry for late reply - yes - 1 camera, no action replays use of the chamois to clean the camera in the rain. watched the next round (I think) Lymington Town v Torquay not as good as game a bit one sided but good to see more grass roots footy!

Solihull scored a good goal but wrongly disallowed for offside.

Ball 29 tonight, so who do people want in the 4th round?

I'd like Doncaster away or failing that anyone lower league at home.

Lower league side away would be good, could do with a nice day out somewhere!

No doubt i'll be scuppered by the game being moved for TV or something though.

AFC Wimbledon or Barnet away on a Saturday if at all possible for me please.

Not an early kick off though, it's bad enough having those at home.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

A home tie against lower league opposition please. Would be good to see the younger lads given another game and I doubt he'd do that if we get Man City away for example.

Don't want Newport away as they're my wife's team and my second team since I lived there for 5 years before we went to Spain. A great result for them yesterday btw.

Also, unless they add temporary seating the allocation is only 1030

Like albionfan says, Man Utd at home for me. We have a great record against them and I would like another crack at them.

I want to avoid Wolves, who I think will be a bit too much for us and would result in a lot of the usual Dingle fuckwittery. I prefer our last game against them being the 5-1.

Fully expect them to do a job on Liverpool tonight though. They are at home, playing a near full strength side, vs a Liverpool reserves team.

It's half time... Moreno is always good for an opposition goal. Still expect Liverpool to hammer them 2nd half.  ;)

Was going to pop down the pub to hear some half time punditry, but realised I could get it on the BBC listening to Shearer. "Strikers standing around, not working hard enough. Just move, earn a contract". Such a basic level of analysis from the "football expert". Too hard to analyse why Liverpool aren't creating anything behind the forwards, or the possible tactical issue of having 2 out and out strikers up front, at odds to what Liverpool usually do. Instead he goes for the hard work line.

Loved him as a player, but no time for his views as a pundit. I want a higher level of analysis to what I could hear from your average fan.

Wolves much the better and deservedly 1-0 up.. Think Liverpool need to get Salah etc. on to turn it around, not that I want them to.

I get what you are saying; I love a good bit of tactical dissection as much as the next person. However, sometimes analysis just needs to be rudimentary.

They haven't created anything though. 2 out and out centre forwards can't shoulder all of the blame when behind them, Liverpool are not producing chances. Young Jones looks a bit lost against the quality of Wolves, and Keita (first time I have watched him properly) looks average. They have looked a bit "empty" all game.
