    I'm not doubting the dipper love in pal, but they won't get anywhere near us in Jan. Trust me.

    Can’t argue with your logic but it’ll still be a shit game for the neutral!

    A quick Google and just realized it's under the new TV deal from this season on for FA Cup meaning seven ties would be on TV for this round (yes SEVEN, that's two more than last few years year, BBC Wales showed an extra game last year making it six as an exception) ... so for this round it's five on BT Sport and two on BBC and would include one Friday night, one Saturday night and one Monday night games with the rest two each during daytime Sat and Sun ... BBC gets the first pick!


    Following on from the qualifying rounds, both broadcasters will share live coverage of every round of the competition proper from early November, with BT Sport showing more live matches under the new TV deal than before, covering up to 30 live FA Cup matches live each season, alongside the BBC’s free-to-air coverage.

    For rounds one and two, the BBC will showcase one live match while BT Sport will show three matches. From the third round onwards, the BBC will continue to show the first pick of live games from the competition on terrestrial television, with two matches per round from round three to the quarter-finals, as well as one semi-final and the final live on BBC One.

    BT Sport also will cover an additional match from rounds three to five of the competition under the terms of the new deal, meaning up to five live games per round on its channels from January onwards.

    Both channels will equally split live coverage of the quarter-final and semi-final ties. The 2019 FA Cup Final will broadcast live on both BBC One and BT Sport on Saturday, 18 May.

    I guess some of this is because the league cup semifinals would be the Tue/Wed after the FA Cup 3rd round, limiting the choices for some days.
    BT Sport chasing advertising is as guaranteed a thing as you'd want.

    The Arsenal match pretty match had to be chosen, but Utd home to equally awful Reading (which seems to happen every other season) could be the stuff of nightmares. If Utd continue to charge £45 for tickets, it might not be very full.

    All the media darlings picked for TV shocker.

    Everton v Lincoln should replace the rag one.
