Took my 5yo son to Sheffield United. Now he wants to go the next round. But of course the big match is being played after his bedtime on a school night.

Grumble grumble.

last years it was £144k for being shown live in this round so probably significantly more under new deal however agree with Gafferbee its not great for the next generation of bees.

I have just lost that battle with Mrs Hoofer. Means my son will miss out twice as do not have BT Sport so cannot record for playback.

On the plus side, I can grab a pre-match beer or two

If we don't progress, we've probably pocketed between £400k-£500k in prize money and TV revenue from this cup run alone.

If a replay is needed, am I right in thinking it would be Tuesday 5th February?

A last nostalgic trip to Griffin Park before Brentford move to their curious new stadium at Lionel Road.
