Less than 60 hours to kickoff when Whickham and Consett start this seasons cup at 4:30am Saturday Morning

I might keep a close eye on Portland United vs Bournemouth.

I always enjoy following these small clubs who no one has ever heard of.

Hopefully we see some clubs outside of the football league make it through to the 3rd round for a big payday.

Couple of ties caught my eye - Godmanchester Rovers v Northampton-on-Cheneck looks a beauty, Sawbridgeworth Town v Cockfosters will be huge whilst Tadley Calleva v Holmer Green should be tight ;)

What a tie between FC United and Bootle

In the first leg last weekend, FC United went up 2-0 early, however, conceded a penalty with 15 minutes to go, then an equaliser in injury time to force a replay

Then on Tuesday Night, we took an early 1-0 lead, before Bootle took a 2-1 lead, and it looked like they were going to go through, then we scored a 90th minute equaliser, before a 97th minute winner

Here's the winner

Next is Blyth next weekend the-emirates-fa-cup-second-round-qualifying.pdf

82 games being played this weekend

Liverpool vs Celtic looks scintillating

Here's hoping the London Police can take down Farnborough.

Not that confident with FC United - We'd need to hand a team in the tier above us their 1st home loss of the year to get through.

Weird comment when if anything Paramount+ is consolidating footballing rights. This comp didn't have a rightsholder before this announcement.
At the moment it is Optus Sport for PL, Stan Sport for CL/EL, Bein sports for League Cup and European Leagues. When the FA cup was on ESPN most people who had Kayo/Fox Sports could watch Bein and FA

The only positive would be if there is some coverage on 10 like the Semis and the Final

Paramount now has A-League, internationals (WC Qualifiers, Asian Cup, etc.) and FA Cup. They aren't just going to settle for those, I think they'll make a play for the PL as well as potentially European leagues and Championship rights. I bet they're kicking themselves regarding the CL rights.

If Paramount get A-League, EPL and the League/FA Cups then they'd be very well set up to expand their customer base for a real stab at the WC and CL rights.

It would have been worse if it was Amazon announcing they had the FA Cup rights, and then I would have agreed with you, but Paramount already have a good chunk of football rights.

I have fond memories of matchday Saturdays on Foxtel where games were on non stop from 5pm running into EPL coverage for the early game. Chat show ran up until the start of the early PL game. Hoping Paramount has something similar if they snare PL.
