BBC Dailly Football Podcast FA Cup 3rd round magic

BBC Football Daily Podcast

Extra time, cup upsets and goals galore – the FA Cup third round didn’t disappoint.

Ben Haines is joined by former Hull City and Ipswich Town defender Alex Bruce and ex-Everton and Birmingham City forward James McFadden to look back on a day that summed up ‘the magic of the FA Cup’.

League One Cambridge United went to St James’ Park and stunned Newcastle United. Hear from their manager Mark Bonner and a very shocked fan who made the journey. Meanwhile, we ask if the exit could be a blessing in disguise for Newcastle later in the season, as Eddie Howe’s men fight to stay in the Premier League.

The lowest team left in the competition – Kidderminster Harriers – who play in the sixth tier of English football, caused an upset of their own beating Championship side Reading. Assistant manager Jimmy O’Connor pulls over on his way home to join the pod and we hear from their speechless manager Russ Penn.

Plus Borehamwood’s Adrian Clifton tells us who he fancies in the fourth round, after his winner ensured the National League side knocked out League One AFC Wimbledon.

Also, after a scare for Everton, did their win over Hull City do anything to ease the pressure on Rafa Benitez? And as VAR made headlines in games featuring Premier League sides, the panel debate if it is fair to use the technology in some ties and not others. Should it be scrapped from the competition?
