Not much in the way of upsets so far. Sunderland losing at home to Mansfield and Port Vale smashing Accrington Stanley 5-1 seem to be the picks. Halifax 7-4 Maidenhead would have been brilliant to watch.

Decent start to the Banbury vs Barrow game on ITV4.

Buxton won at York. Only one division difference now, but still the first time they've made the Second Round since 1958/59.

@Distant Doonhamer and @Adamski how were your respective football weekends?

We had an excellent afternoon at Palace v Wolves. Well deserved win for Palace albeit a couple of big VAR decisions (correctly) went their way. Pre VAR Zaha's opening goal would have been wrongly ruled out for offside and Wolves would have had a penalty when the foul was in fact just outside the box. 

We ultimately didn't go to any FA Cup ties. Pity but the atmosphere at Palace was great and we had a fine afternnon.

We had a great weekend - pals I've not seen since Covid happened, lots of football, and beer to a level that I've grown out of practice with.

Brighton v Newcastle on Saturday evening, followed by Arsenal v Watford on Sunday afternoon. Neither of the games were classics, but enough incidents to keep us entertained: VAR had hands in both games, red cards, penalties, Brighton finishing the game with an outfield player in goal, etc. Brighton was a good night out, and the Emirates is an impressive beast of a stadium - a long, long way from Palmerston!

It's good to be back doing stuff like that again. Hopefully more before too long.

How easy was it getting Arsenal tickets? Its my dad's 70th this year and they are his English team if he had to pick one and I'm hoping to take him to a game early next year. If not we'll just do the stadium tour etc. but ideally we'd take in a game against mid table opposition (I can't see us getting tickets for a big name game).

My mate booked them through a company called Sports Travel Guru. We paid £90 - a seat in club level, stadium tour, free drink at half time, programme, £5 club shop voucher. Think we had access to the museum as well. Pretty happy with it as a one-off experience, and my mate said the company were good to deal with.
