So here's a thread for discussion of this season's FA cup.

Third round begins next Saturday; the two most interesting fixtures being Swansea at United, a potential trap game that will result in pandemonium should United fail to win, at the North London Derby being played at Emirates, in which Arsenal could deliver a crushing blow deep into Tottenham's soul.

The third round of the FA Cup is my favourite footballing day of the year!

There's another derby with Middlesborough playing Hull.

Stoke v Leicester could be interesting as could Derby v Chelsea and Southampton v Burnley.

The Fa Cup started months ago. I don't like that others think it starts on the 3rd round. Over 700 teams participate in the tournament, and my team are already out losing in the second round.

Some good ties this round though, hopefully there will be a few shocks.

Gunners are riddled with injuries, I'd be extremely satisfied with a draw at this point.

For a team that is riddled with injuries they managed to beat the most overrated team in the PL. .

Here's the latest drama, none bigger perhaps than what happened at Old Trafford in the last minute;

Arsenal crushing Spurs with their reserve team, and Swans knocking out United at OT: this is the best FA cup ever!

Tell me about it.

All that needs to be done is knock Chelsea out and it'll get even better.
