    thats $$$$ IMO

    Liverpool and Man U, dont need the extra money

    why not choose the Histon game or Forest Green Rovers?
     
  2. Well, with only 2 ties being broadcast it was never likely to happen. TV channels will always go for all-premiership clashes or prem v lower league matches.

    Hadn't there used to be 4 live TV matches per round, 2 on the BBC and 2 on Sky? I would have thought the same would apply this year (and if it had, then possibly top of the top of the championship clash would have been picked up)
     
  3. Its not about Liverpool and Man U getting the money, its about getting viewing figures and the revenue that brings to ITV/Setanta. Lots more people will tune in for Liverpool or Man U than lower league/conf teams

    All Broadcasters assume we are so besotted with the Big4 ,that we need another fix of FA Cup action. So So boring!

    Only 2 matches being broadcast? Thats rather $$$$e, no surprise about the Liverpool game being shown though, and everyone loves Man Utd dont they?

    The beeb used to have 3 games the last few seasons then Sky had at least one, so wouldn't be surprised if there are further selections at a later date.

    the magic of the cup isnt seeing man united batter southampton, its about blood and guts rivalry or an upset, saints beat united in 1976 and i expect the tv cameras will be there just in case this is repeated so they can come out with an old cliche or two and drag bobby stokes out for a day. preston v liverpool???? cant see why they picked this, BBC would for lawrenson to get his gay irish accent out cause he played for both teams. id have picked our game as the only proper derby and maybe cov v kiddy or hull v newcastle, were concentrating on the league so the cup is irrelevant to me.

    if Notts County win their replay, surley the closest derby would be Notts County Vs Eastwood...

    Thats just 2 out of the 5 matches which will be shown live. I'll guess that the other selections will be Stockport/Gillingham v Aston Villa, Macclesfield v Everton and Blyth Spartans/Bournemouth v Blackburn. Please don't show a token all Premiership match!!
