Fans gave their reaction after seeing the latest FA Cup TV selections…
@TimBolton01: Chelsea vs Luton. Wow. What an enthralling tie.
@theshrew88: Chorley vs Wolves should have been on BBC not Chelsea easy peasy lemon squezzy tie against Luton
@PaulofLutonAC: Chelsea V Luton is obviously your choice for an upset and I think you have that right. Come on you Hatters
@HUGEWolf: On the proper BT channel this time so no need for dodgy, Portuguese commentary
@magomes466727: West Ham v Doncaster Rovers is on BT Sport 1 am i right? I am surprised by the BBC Sport not selecting that game – wow! Chelsea v Luton should not be live on BBC Sport as no one cares about that one be a one sided game trust me!
@HJJ92_: Sheff Weds at home at 8pm on a Sunday night. What a shite time.
@simonjv1878: Sunday at 8pm fuck me thought this was the fa cup not El Classico
@Capo_2nd: Was hoping for chorley v wolves on the BBC…. oh well
@StevenSOS1987: You can tell Cardiff are out if BBC Wales have chosen to put us on live
@Ashley_SCFC: We’re huge *And the only Welsh team left
@EFC_Mike79: That Brentford v Leicester game could be a cracker, Brentford are a good little team to watch
@adamsummerton: Very glad to be making another trip to Victory Park, cracking tie – let’s hope the @chorleyfc ground staff don’t have to sleep underneath the stars this time though!
@HG1878: 8pm on a Sunday kick off should be illegal. Sorry that’s when I should be relaxing not being pissed off with Everton.
@YidBuckler: Why on earth are we playing Monday night when we don’t have a game next midweek, and then we play Thursday. Fucking shambles
@DuaneFlibble: Why did you put Spurs Monday night before Thursday’s game v Liverpool? Don’t tell me there isn’t anything corrupt within football in this country again. Especially after a referee fully admitted bias towards Fergie and United.
@WLuker97: Well I certainly know what will be on my TV screen come half 5 on Saturday 23rd January! Biggest cup tie for the Robins and live on BBC One! Doesn’t get any better than that! #ctfc #FACup
@HungryHatter: Blimey, we’re on BBC One!
@TonyGreenall4: Thankfully #DRFC at West Ham on the Beeb online rather than the disastrous FA Player.
@jamie23699: Should’ve stuck the Bournemouth Crawley game in the Cheltenham City slot.. much more interesting game
@TEBickley: Disappointed that the BBC are showing Manchester Utd vs Liverpool rather than Chorley vs Wolves. Potential giant killing over an all PL clash with second teams playing…I’m sure @GaryLineker or @mrdanwalker were relishing their trip to Lancashire!
@mattyadders: More cash even if we lose. Very welcomed indeed, although TV fee considerably less than 12 months ago
