FA Cup 2019: Third Round onwards

Recommended Posts

Well on the eve of our match, the first match of the dog's dinner round of three takes place on the Wirral. As I type, Spurs are 7-0 up at Tranmere. A thread not particularly for our great FA cup tradition, but for comments about the other ties? As I said in the Newcastle thread, it would be nice for us to take it seriously. The commentators are saying Spurs not reet bothered. I find that quite sad. But they are doing alreet at the moment!

I'm a great believer in momentum, and going into two league games that should be won, a win at Newcastle would be a fillip. Not Philipl. So for Spurs to go there and win like that? Why wouldn't they want to win the cup after eleven years of nowt? i don't believe they can win the league.

I was gonna say Accy to beat Ipswich, but upon checking they're actually favourites! Speaks volumes about how dreadful Ipswich are that a recently promoted team a league below them are favourites to win.

Wallsall to win at Bolton. Luton to give a good account of themselves at Hillsborough. Bristol City to beat Huddersfield. Portsmouth to win at Norwich.

Dingles will have to be careful with Barnsley and Everton cannot be too gungho picking a side to play Lincoln but those might be half time shocks but not at full time.

If I were Karanka, I'd have a full strength side out at Stamford Bridge- Chelsea are vulnerable. However, I expect Forest will also be fielding a weakened side which is why Chelsea v Forest is not my tip for an upset.

I think there are a whole range of possibilities for upsets this weekend. Most won't happen but somewhere it will. Stanley must have a good chance at home to Ipswich. Birmingham at West Ham, Peterborough at Middlesbrough, Gillingham at home to Cardiff and Luton at Sheff Weds, as well as Philip's suggestions.

The home banker Man Utd v Reading was the BT Sports live game. Yawns!

Apart from the millions of glory hunting foreigners, who was interested in that boorish tie?

It’s a stretch to call it a prediction but it was on my list of possible updates above, as was Stanley.

I love how it isn't even really being reported as an upset. Ipswich are basically already considered a League 1 team.

Only Wallsall let me down. Hope Mercer had money on my tips...

Round 3 is always in alphabetical order, no idea how subsequent rounds work.

Round 3 is alphabetical order but I think subsequent rounds are in the order they were drawn in the previous round, ie the winner of the first match drawn in round 3 is no.1 in round 4 draw.
