Can't disagree with most of that but the first one is no more interesting than, say, Man C v Burnley.

I'm pleased we've avoided a TV game although i'm sure they can still move it to the Sunday if they want to. Wasn't Sheff Wed at home moved last season to the Sunday even though it wasn't a live TV game?

And it's still funny that 'arsenal' with an 'A' is considered naughty and with an 'a' isn't.

Can the 75 teams play instead, would be more passionate and entertaining.

Canít they just play the 75 game on the big screen so we can at least have a decent game to watch

The club will wait until a week before the game to decide on kick off time and then tell us on the Thursday when it is. 100's of FMTTM's will then besiege this message board with complaints to be taken to the Fans forum with the club who will no doubt just pat the "representatives" of us all on the head and fob them off as usual.

Unsurprising we're not on TV, the game and atmosphere in the league game was dull let alone a cup game in which both teams will field half the reserve team.

Much prefer the smaller v larger teams.

arsenal.

The site "corrects" it by changing the entered "A" to an "a" in the displayed version. If you go back in to edit, the "A" is still present.

I thought we would be on TV tbh. There's some decent / interesting games in there, but i'm not convinced by Shrewsbury - West Ham as being more interesting to the neutral fan...

With the exception of 1 of those the reasons of televising them are obvious;

Liverpool vs Everton (BBC) All Prem derby
January 6: Fleetwood/Hereford vs Leicester City (BBC) Following Hereford on from Round 2
January 6: Norwich vs Chelsea (BT Sport) Current Prem champs
January 7: Shrewsbury vs West Ham United (BBC)
January 7: Nottingham Forest vs arsenal (BT Sport) Current FA Cup holders
January 8: Brighton and Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace (BT Sport) All Prem Derby

Nope, I don't know what the particular draw with the Shrews against the Hammers is either...

I believe that Liverpool is also in the north btw Boro19, so bang goes that theory.

I'm not sure. A team flying in the lower leagues at home to a struggling Prem side normally makes for a good tie IMO.

Isnít this the first time Man U hasnít been a live game in the FA Cup for 7 years? Or is that an urban myth.

Iím with Capybara on that. 3rd round weekend is about the minnows taking on the big boys and being a traditionalist like him look to the intriguing games rather than two PL teams battling it out. At least the Palace v Brighton game has the spice of two non establishment sides fighting for the only thing they can win this season. Not that they were ever going to not showing the Merseyside Derby

Luton versus the geordies should be on. Luton are flying. If they score 7 again, fir the 3rd time this season, Iíd love it to be against them pricks from up the road.

BT Sport have made poor choices in my opinion.

Chelsea and arsenal will have comfortable, non thrilling 2-0 type wins at Norwich and Forest respectively.

I've always thought that one way of getting around the issue of selecting which games to put on TV is to have another draw a few minutes after the actual draw, where all the ties are given a number and dropped back into the hat. You then pick however many balls out to fill the TV quota, drawing out the Friday night game first and so on. That would be a better way of doing it, IMO.

Or an even better way would be to choose the game involving lowest-ranked team in the competition for broadcast at 3pm on the Sunday afternoon and have the rest kick off at 3pm on the Saturday.

I agree with luton v Newcastle being a definite chance of a shock and suspect had Luton been drawn at home it would have definitly been chosen. Thats why Shrewsbury v West Ham is on.

Course it could have been Newcastle v Gateshead.
