In fa cup proper we’ve always played league 1 teams (0-0-2 at home, 1-1-0 away)

Wouldn’t mind a game vs Hull in the next match SM :p
Also intrigued to see if our perfect record of telecast games follows. (All 3 been telecast, not 100 sure of 2010-11 2nd round replay vs Brighton)
If not, I might just fork out the £5 fcum charge to stream the matches online.

I wonder how teams will play in this years main round

With no replays, will clubs just flood back and play for a shootout. Could be a crap season.
Alternatively, if a team does score, it could open it up as it's basically like all games are replays.

FA Cup games are normally on ESPN. I reckon 3rd round games should be, but you'll have to check the tv guide to see if 1st and 2nd round games even get shown.
Yay, our (Kewell's duds) 1st round game is live on ESPN and possibly the BBC website. We beat Hampton & Richmond a couple of seasons ago at the same stage but they had a partisan crowd cheering them on. It's a shame there won't be a crowd in tonight but I think it will work in our favour.
