So the third round draw has been made:

Middlesbrough v Shrewsbury
Nottingham Forest v Leicester City
Manchester City v Manchester United
Dagenham & Redbridge/Walsall v Millwall
Crawley v Bristol City
Doncaster v Sutton Utd/Notts County
Bristol Rovers v Aston Villa
Tottenham v Cheltenham Town
Sheffield Wednesday v West Ham
Milton Keynes Dons v QPR
Hull City v Ipswich Town
Coventry v Southampton
Brighton v Wrexham
Fulham v Charlton Athletic
Birmingham v Wolves
Norwich v Burnley
Arsenal v Leeds United
Derby v Crystal Palace
Fleetwood/Yeovil v Blackpool
Swindon v Wigan
Barnsley v Swansea
Chelmsford/Macclesfield v Bolton
Newcastle v Blackburn
Everton v Tamworth
Sheffield United v Salisbury City/Grimsby
Liverpool v Southend/Oldham
Gillingham v Stoke
Chelsea v Portsmouth
Watford v Bradford
Peterborough v Sunderland
West Brom v Cardiff
Reading v Stevenage

The standout is obviously Man City v Man Utd but my main interest is in the Liverpool v Southend. My first team versus my second team, the place where I was born versus the place I've spent about 20 years of my life living.

Looking forward to making the trip to Goodison Park. I don't expect anything but a hammering, but I reckon Tamworth will put up a decent fight. The money will be good if it goes into stadium improvements like the chairman has said it will. Especially if it's televised.

It be good for Tamworth to play against a team with a lower transfer budget than them

I am considering the trip to Bramall Lane, that's only like half an hour to an hours journey from here, would have preferred a Premiership team though.

Its a shame that in many cases, the bigger teams are drawn at home. So Charlton might still upset Fulham, but a home game would have suited better. Ditto for Leeds, Arsenal, where I don't see an upset, but could have been a very interesting game.

Drawn at home, the Birmingham Wolves derby could be interesting. And I'm sure Blackburn are already throwing their game against Newcastle to concentrate on the league

At least three serious derby matches in that draw, should be ace.

Don't Forest get a by into the last 16, due to the fact that they are such a big club?

Apparently, you might not have heard, they won the European cup a couple of times.

That depends solely on how you define "glory years."

A tie away to Fulham is one that I am really looking forward too. A London derby against a decent prem team in what should be a good atmosphere and us having a good chance of a shock result. It's what we fought so hard in the last two rounds for so I hope we throw caution to the wind and give it a good old go.

Well it's almost FA Cup day again, and the hype machine is pretty much in full swing around here. Looking forward to it, even if it is the less glamorous of the Liverpool teams .

4100 tickets have been sold to Tamworth fans so far. There was only 1000 at the game on Sunday. And that was the highest attendance (that I've been present at) since the first Saturday home game of the season. Why most of these 'fans' can't attend league games is beyond me!

We sold out all 7,000 tickets for the trip to Fulham a few days after they went on sale. Shame the game's not on tele, Chelsea took the Sunday game after West London police met with club officials to decide upon which game would be played on which day. Still I'm looking forward to it, I have a lot of respect for Fulham, they're a very stable football club and a very determined team, they've played some great football in recent weeks after a questionable start and with players like Brede Hangaaland and Clint Dempsey (the latter of which if he was English would be in Capello's team for next summer in my view) they don't just beat teams like Arsenal on luck (or bad refereeing Wenger!). I don't know if they plan to rest this weekend, in some ways I hope they don't, this will be a real challenge for us and give our players an experience of the level they could be setting their sights on playing in come a few years time.

I think we could get a shock but we'll have to work our socks off to do it.

After the stuffings you've been getting in the league recently (what is going on btw!? Met up with my Leeds mate last week and he reckons you just can't get a solid back four together...) it wouldn't surprise me if you follow up United last season with a win against Arsenal.

Thats the problem, been like that for 2 years now and it's really costing us, last season we had a "we'll score more than you" play style, now the defence has got worse and we can't keep that up. Arsenals defence is equally terrible without Vermaelen so yeah, anything could happen. Expect goals!

I take it the strikers are a bit of an issue as well, I haven't seen Beechio on the scoresheet as much as I thought I would this season. Do you still have that Bassone player, god he was bloody terrible on loan for us, glad we sent him straight back? How's Lloyd Sam doing?

Becchios not started enough to get the goals, a combination of injuries and Ross McCormack keeping him on the bench. Sam is doing well on the bench too. We've just signed Andros Townsend on loan so I don't know what that says about Lloyd but it can't be good.

I think we shipped Bessone out back to Swansea, I honestly don't remember half the shit that goes in and out of Leeds.

Well that was a fun day out. Tamworth fans were totally up for it! Absolutely ripping the piss out of Phil Neville for some raisin. I wasn't in on the joke, but it was frickin funny, and he was game and giving it back. May have lost 2-0, but put up a hell of a fight, and the penalty was very questionable, but no use moaning. Great atmosphere and even a lot of the Everton fans stayed behind and applauded the team.

I hope the highlights are more than just a goals round up because a lot of the chants were very funny. It was actually a pretty decent ground too. I've been to a few premier league grounds now, but that wasn't the worst!

Cup run was getting silly anyway, need to get back into form in the league [/genericfootballtalk]!

Not disappointed whatsoever. It was a great game and the money will do wonders for the club.

Seriously though, should be a good game(s) - really enjoyed the two matches last year so hoping for more of the same this time.

I believe it's in the hundreds of thousands, if not more. The chairman has pledged to put it towards stadium improvements. And my does it need them!
