    For the first time since 2005, a run of 58 games, Man United will play an untelevised FA Cup game when they play the rams in january.

    Typical. Just when we were looking at a massive payday, and the slim possibility of causing an upset...

    I thought it was an unwritten rule that every MU FA Cup game had to be shown live.

    I know that we are not allowed to sell tickets on here,  but IF our away allocation were to sell out....and IF I were to have three tickets in the home end, and IF only my good self and my Manure supporting son wanted to go....

    Another dose of reality for us long suffering Derby fans.

    There are two reasons this game is not being televised.

    1. The side Man Utd are facing don't have the required appeal.
    2. The chances of a shock are too unrealistic for it to be deemed watchable.


    I'm glad it's not on the telly. We are never going to cause an upset at Old Trafford with the players we have. We'll likely have about 30% possession and lose by two or three goals. Hopefully Mourinho will play a heavily weakened side so we can keep the scoreline reasonable.

    There are no plus points about this draw.

    IF there was an available bed somewhere in the Greater Manchester area Wink surely someone would be only too happy to book a flight.......

    I noticed there was a huge outcry about "Manchester United of the Day" when the draw was anounced, with people moaning that Manure would still get on the telly even when the opposition is Derby County. Have the telly powers that be bowed to public opinion?

    Radio Derby suggested the change was made at the request if the police,
    because Man City will be playing at home on Saturday, so probably still
    on tv.

    Liverpool Everton is on BBC Sport on Friday 5th January

    BT Sport doesn't have FA Cup on Friday but BT Sport has Cup games on Saturday 6th January 2018

    maybe BT Sport will take the Rams game now that it has been changed?
