I saw most of the Litherland Remyca v AFC Liverpool tie. It was a enjoyable match and it's good to see the BBC investing in the grassroots game like this. If you were watching too you might have noticed my tweet being read out near the end biggrin.gif

After that was over I went to see Hamworthy Utd v Bemerton Heath Harlequins. The Hammers (yes, really) took a very early lead and made it 2-0 at the start of the second half before BHH pulled it back to 2-1 a few minutes later. After several scares two late goals gave the Hammers a flattering 4-1 win.

The thing I love about the preliminary rounds of the FA Cup is that most of the team names all seem like sound-a-like names used by football games in the 90s when they couldn't get the copyright to the official team names.

I didn't watch, unfortunately I was committed elsewhere at the BBC. (literally. I was at Dock10 watching them film a gameshow)

I'm just waiting for the National League teams to be drawn in and hoping Chester can have a good run at it this year.

The BBC's live match (on the red button and iPlayer) is Billericay Town v Didcot Town. Billericay's players include former Brighton player Jake Robinson who scored a rather good goal against Dulwich a few days aga.

Boreham Wood, Oxford City and Maidstone knocked out league opposition.

Sutton and Lincoln are out of the FA Cup. Shame to see that after the heroics they performed last season.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say that Liverpool v Everton will be one of the live games.

Other likely choices - Brighton v Palace, Nottm For v Arsenal, Fleetwood or Hereford v Leicester, Norwich v Chelsea, Shrewsbury v West Ham.

Don't forget Man U v Derby. United's consecutive run of broadcast FA Cup matches is over 50 now or something daft like that

I think this could be the round when Man U's run of televised matches finally ends. Of course, with City at home as well, that doesn't necessarily mean a Saturday 3.00 kick-off.

Liverpool vs Everton the big game of the draw - assuming BBC get he first pick, I can assume it will either be a Sunday or Monday night televised game?

I have noticed the BBC especially picking more leftfield choices recently for televised games.

Nottingham Forrest vs Arsenal will get shown on BT Sport I would imagine. Outside chance of Tottenham vs Wimbledon as well as it will be a big day out at Wembley for the opposition fans and the journalists.
