Michael Owen and Martin Keown present an incredibly boring draw, who'd have thought it?
What was Michael Owen's face all about?
FA Cup victory for Newcastle in Round 3? Blimey. Only been 5 years since the last one.

Although our luck away in the Cup means Oxford away in the next round isn't the best of rewards.

First game I've got to in a while that, we were superb first half - second not so much

Shelvey makes such a difference.
Two nil down, at home, against Championship side Wolves! Wow we're in a rut thats for sure! I feel like an arsenal fan the way we've bottled our season!

ouch, liverpool's season falling apart
Reserves in the cup. Brilliant.

The local media praising Benitez for this, ffs.
Now Wycombe leading at Spurs
Pisses me off when teams do what we're doing today. Just play your best team, get the game won and then take them off. Playing backup players that rarely play as a team does nothing other than motivate the opposition.
Of course Newcastle's (currently) losing to a team in a lower division ffs.
Knocked out by Mike Phelan's Hull and Oxford - I'm glad the Chronicle keep telling me how football man Benitez has brought back cup runs to Newcastle!
3-0 Oxford. Jesus fuck, why do we even bother playing Sels? He's shite!

It also looks like the Championship's top two teams will be heading out of the competition, Lincoln lead Brighton 3-1 now.
... I mean, I know we're frequently shit at best in the FA Cup but this is pathetic.

Cant even have the silver living of avoiding extra games when in a promotion challenge as Brighton went and imploded as well
Fucking hell we scraped through that one.
Heartbroken for Wycombe, they were great.
Rafa had no choice to put out the reserves!!!! Unlike the previous clowns / yes men who put out disgraceful teams against joke clubs like Watford who also finished above Newcastle

To say we had a real banana skin of a draw away at Rochdale, we acquitted ourselves very well. 8 changes again, but the real change came with the subs at half-time.

Got to be honest, I've not seen a pitch that bad in a very long time. The ball held up horribly at times, bobbled all over the park and was really awkward. We just didn't get to grips with it and for 35 minutes the match was utterly awful. I keep reading about how Rochdale dominated us, and it's true that they missed two good chances, but they also didn't get a shot on target for 80 minutes, by which time we were 3-0 up. They got about us, made life hard, kicked us up in the air at times, but the pitch meant good football on either side was at a real premium.

Quaner scored and looked good. In truth the opening goal came about because the Kevin Pressman-alike in goal (he was seriously fat. I mean... fat) shanked his kick and we capitalised - Brown squared to Quaner who was just onside, and he got his debut goal. Second goal came after Hudson got a fairly hefty shove on a corner and the ref, to his credit, spotted it. Our first penalty since last March was duly dispatched by Brown, who looks a real talent. Hefele benefited from some comical goalkeeping after a free-kick, and the fourth was undeniably the goal of the game - nice work giving Mooy the time and space to ping a pass for Quaner to run onto. Quaner drove at the defence, pulled it across, and Hefele, playing as a striker and demonstrating plan B of sticking a centre-half up top can work on a dodgy pitch in driving rain in Rochdale, finished.

Special mention to the goalkeeper, young Coleman, who was immaculate. Although he wasn't troubled by any of their shots, they did put plenty of balls in and his handling was impeccable. I really am starting to rate him. For a kid, he's got great maturity and his command of his area is excellent.
Blimey both Sutton and Lincoln in the 5th Round.

I don't know if it would be anticlimactic if they got drawn to face each other in the next round, or an excellent thing as it'd guarantee a Conference/NL side in the FA Cup Quarter Finals.

First time since the inception of the Football League in 1888 that two non-league sides have reached the fifth round (though this should be taken with a pinch of salt, as the modern format of the FA Cup didn't arrive for many years, with top-flight teams entering in round one up to 1925).
Part of me hopes both Sutton & Lincoln get drawn against each other just so one National League side is guaranteed a place in the quarter finals.

Aye that would be amazing.

I'm hoping we draw one of them at home though!

I'd be interested to see a big name Premier League side on Sutton's 3G plastic pitch.

Our season has collapsed spectacularly.
Only 7 (possibly 8 if Leicester go through) of the 16 are Premier League sides...Seems a really small amount to me :\

We're bound to get Millwall away. Though Sutton or Lincoln at home would be great.
Sutton v Arsenal... well I did call a big gun on the plastic pitch. Assuming that it doesn't get moved like that game Arsenal had against Farnborough in 2005.

We're bound to get Millwall away. Though Sutton or Lincoln at home would be great.

Alternatively, we'll take Manchester City at home. Given they have a Champions League game that week (and also play the previous Monday), I wonder if they might rest a few or take their eyes off the ball. Could prove a glorious chance to go through to the quarter-finals.

You've got your wish. Sutton's got Arsenal at Gander Green Lane, while Lincoln City will travel to Burnley.
Don't really think the pitch will make any difference and in fact i feel it will be a big help to us. Most modern pitches are now perfectly flat, very firm and just have a good watering to keep them slick during a game which is no different to what Sutton's 3G pitch will be. Had it been a muddy mess that would have been a good leveler but can see us winning this very easily 4/5-0 without really having to break a sweat. Hope they earn a few quid out of it though.
