    Anyone know if it's on TV or if it's streamed on twitter or something?

    Wait, did I not make a thread for this year? I must be getting slack!

    BT Sports are doing live coverage of it around that time.

    Away to Nottingham Forest. Pretty good.

    Some derbies in there. Everton vs Liverpool, Middlesbrough vs Sunderland, Brighton vs Crystal Palace

    Fleetwood or Hereford? Ho ho!

    I know that there are some big derbies on, but surely we're one of the TV games, regardless of opposition?

    Fleetwood would be the Jamie Vardy story (and I hate to admit it, but it would be a crime to not play Vardy here).

    Hereford would be the lowest ranked team in the cup, and that usually is TV worthy.

    For once, ever since we've gotten back in the PL, our first opponent isn't a boring PL side!

    With who you got for the third round (Scouser Derby at Ainfield), you won't be seeing a 4th round (unless BFS cracks through this weekend).

    Last year we had Matip tied up in a battle with the Cameroonian FA, Mane at the AFC plus Hendo, Coutinho & Lallana all out at the same time. Hopefully January 2018 is a little kinder to us!!! Was a shambles last season.

    The way it's heading, having Emre Can and Wijnaldum at CB, it's not ideal.

    I think that was the joke! :p

    But Liverpool have never beaten Everton at home in the FA Cup.

    Don’t understand the point of having this thread. Arsenal are clearly going to win the FA Cup in a canter, as we always do.

    Hopefully we'll have a manager by then. Our guy is pretty close to the door (surely!). Mind you, it must be hard for you to comprehend being upset at being 10th in the league, and this fixture is probably a handy distraction. At least afterwards, you'll be able to concentrate on the league.
