Who, Jose Marineio?

Brill...  

One of the funniest comments in my direction was at Marine. One scouse wag shouted at me "Referee, that goalkeeper thinks he's Kenneth More, every time he gets the ball he's taking 39 steps". It was t

Any idea when the draw is?

To say the BBC have first dibs on the FA Cup, their coverage is abysmal.

They live streamed about 5  matches yesterday on the iplayer and I presume they may do something similar today. They certainly have an FA cup programme todsay on BBC1 or 2.

Their FA cup coverage is actually very good.

From outside the UK, the FA Cup doesn't exist.

Anybody from the Premier League at home in the 3rd round should mean money from a live BBC game plus hopefully by the time the game is played in Jan Chorley will be out of tier 3 and some fans will be allowed in to watch.

Marine have also qualified from the Northern Prem! Same league as Bamber Bridge!

I was at their 1st qualifying round match at Frickley where they were lucky to win 1-0 with a late goal.

Good luck to them.

Normally the 3rd round draw is one of the most exciting events in the calendar, hoping that we get a good draw or a lower division side away from home.

This year I'm really not too bothered. Would be typical if we good a really attractive tie away at a new ground and nobody could go. 

Avoid the Dingles. Other than that not bothered.

I think they are one division below Bamber Bridge. "T'Brig" are in the premier division of the northern premier league and Marine are in the division one north west of the northern premier league. By my calculations it is tier 8.

Getting to the 3rd round of the FA Cup is some achievement. I wonder if it's the first time a team has reached the 3rd round from such a lowly position.
