Used to enjoy catching up with the highlights and live match at night, but not really sure where the day's highlights would be this year? Presumably BT Sport will be doing recaps as part of their nightly coverage?

Saw a bit of Channel 4's stuff yesterday. It's fine, but the graphics and transitions into/out of replays seem a bit.. er, plain.

Yeah. Although Channel 4 did show highlights of a couple of last night's matches before today's games began.

Nice selection of FACR3 Replays to choose from

Ipswich Town v Lincoln City
Sunderland v Burnley
Blackpool v Barnsley
Wigan Athletic v Nottingham Fvest
Birmingham City v Newcastle United
Liverpool v Plymouth Argyle
Bristol City v Fleetwood Town
Bolton Wanderers v Crystal Palace
Norwich City v Southampton
Sutton United v AFC Wimbledon

all ended as Draws

BBC might go for the game at Plymouth in order to get Klopp on, BT could go for Norwich - Southampton wouldn't surprise me to see BT try for a second with the Sunderland or Newcastle matches attractive.

While not the most enticing tie, Cardiff v Fulham got a very low attendance after being moved to 11.30am for BBC Wales:

How does the Welsh element of FA Cup rights work? Can BBC Wales/ S4C bid on an ad hoc basis or is it written into the current deal? It seems to an odd quirk in TV rights, to say the least.

No doubt the BBC will go for Plymouth v Liverpool - it fits their seemingly preferred model of big teams playing away to lower league opposition. The second is trickier to call - Newcastle v Birmingham would be my choice.


If the BBC have first choice, of course. The first choice in replay alternates, though I have no idea whose turn it is. But yes, Liverpool is 100% the first choice, for obvious reasons.
