The big FA Cup thread 2017-18

Post by daib0 » 10 Aug 2017, 22:12

I thought it a good idea to put this up soon, because when we get to the First Round proper I'm up for doing the FA Cup Upsets Comp once again!


And so it starts up once again...

FA Cup preliminary round live on BBC Sport

It is just 69 days since Arsenal beat Chelsea to win the 2016-17 FA Cup at Wembley. The extra preliminary round features 370 teams who will have to win six games if they are to advance to the first round in November. Winning clubs at this stage will receive £1,500 each, while one match per round through qualifying will be streamed on the BBC Sport. The all-Merseyside tie between Litherland REMYCA and AFC Liverpool (12:30 BST) will be live on Saturday on the BBC Sport website. Litherland, who play in the 10th-tier North West Counties League Division One, are making their FA Cup debut. AFC Liverpool play one league above in the North West Counties Premier Division.

Depends on whether you're talking about as the kookaburra flies or by jumbo jet. I'd really need a map of the UK to give an accurate answer.

They said on the Blackpool forum that The all-Merseyside tie between Litherland REMYCA and AFC Liverpool was a great fixture, with a spectacular winning goal for Litherland! Of course, it's almost local for them!

FA Cup

FA Cup: Singer Jake Quickenden looking to hit the right notes for Ossett Town

He's been watched on television by millions, performed on stage in front of thousands at Wembley Arena, and has nearly 500,000 followers on Twitter. On Saturday, Jake Quickenden is set to play for his new eighth-tier club Ossett Town at Sheffield FC in the FA Cup preliminary round in front of around 200 people - a world away from his life as a reality television star, singer and model.
"I get more nervous playing football than I do when I'm up on stage performing in front of thousands," the 28-year-old X Factor singer and 2014 I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! runner-up told BBC Sport.

think it's still optional .... but Posh, as a league team, would always be in the First Round (proper) and the 3rd Round when a second tier side, surely?

When I say the "good old days" I mean when we were non-league and had to play qualifying rounds.

Baldock Town club tweeter apologises after he is sent on as substitute


Such is the reach of social media these days, even non-league football clubs provide their supporters with blow-by-blow updates via Twitter.
In the case of Baldock Town, that job has this season fallen to injured defender Liam Kenna.
But his updates from the dugout during their FA Cup preliminary qualifying round tie against North Greenford United came to abrupt halt when he was sent on as a substitute with 10 minutes remaining.

full story and offer by Emirates FA Cup to cover his tweets for him next match at http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41011563

BBC Sport - Story from the Last Preliminary Round

Crazy tie sees four penalties in seven minutes and two disallowed goals - An FA Cup epic unfolds

Four penalties in seven minutes in a six-goal, 120-minute thriller is value for money in anyone's book. Credit then to Erith Town of the Southern Counties East Premier Division and Isthmian League South side Whyteleafe for turning in an absolute FA Cup classic. BBC Sport takes you through the FA Cup preliminary round replay with the help of social media.

It all started so well for the home team. Erith's Dan Palfrey had already despatched a free-kick when Ryan Golding made it 2-0 from the spot on 38 minutes, and started a flurry of spot-kicks. However, Sam Clayton drew Whyteleafe level with two penalties of his own, making no mistake on either occasion. Erith regained the lead with the fourth spot-kick of the game, again netted by Golding, to make it 3-2 on the stroke of half-time.

With nine minutes to go in this preliminary round replay, the visitors equalise. This one is fated to go to pens.

Was the game not exciting enough, ref? Whyteleafe had TWO goals disallowed in extra time.

Finally... a winner. 4-1 to the home team on penalties. Harsh on Whyteleafe. Massive for Erith. Nine successful penalties in all. That's the magic of the FA Cup right there.
