Monday night has seen the FA Cup fourth round draw take place.

The 32nd and final third round tie seeing Wolves beat Liverpool 2-1.

The fourth round draw taking place after the end of that televised match.

Newcastle of course got a late draw on Saturday with an 84th minute Matt Ritchie penalty, so have a third round replay to get through on either Tuesday 15 January or Wednesday 16 January (see below).

Rafa’s team sharing ball number 10 with Blackburn.

The winner of that third round replay will face Watford.

Ball number 10 out first and so the game is to take place at St James Park or Ewood Park depending on who gets through the replay.

That replay looking sure to be chosen for live TV.

The Mag – Earlier today (Monday 7 January):

On Monday morning the Blackburn v Newcastle ticket prices have been revealed.

The home side releasing details of how and when Blackburn fans can get tickets for the FA Cup Third round replay.

The ticket prices are laid out below but you certainly can’t complain, with Under 18s paying only £2 for a ticket.

Adults pay £10 with those aged 65+ and those aged 18-21 paying a fiver.

Newcastle United doubled their ticket prices to £20 and £10 for concessions on the day (Saturday) of the 1-1 draw and Blackburn are doubling theirs on matchday, though only after 5pm on the day of the game.

No date is confirmed but the match is expected to take place on either Tuesday 15 January or Wednesday 16 January.

Once Wolves v Liverpool play tonight, the TV companies will choose the replays to be shown live.

Even if tonight’s game is a draw, Blackburn v Newcastle looks sure to be one of those chosen for live broadcast.

There have only been four draws in the opening 31 third round matches and Newcastle’s visit to Blackburn is the only one where lower league opposition are home to a Premier League club. The next most attractive clearly is Southampton v Derby, with Luton v Sheff Wed and Stoke v Shrewsbury the other two.

It is expected Newcastle United will wait until a date is confirmed before releasing details on how to get an away ticket.

    I fancy a run in the cup, it’s a pity the club doesn’t.

      Its not a cup its a bucket.

      • KennyS

        I fancy a run in the bucket … sounds like a Monty Python sketch.

        • Leazes.

          Sounds like a urinal

            You taking the p!$$?

    • WildBill

      True, some progress in the cup might lift a little gloom. If we were a normal club it would be a good draw. Home games, avoiding the top six, draw opening up, Liverpool out, Arsenal or Man U going out. Ideal path to the last 16. But the club doesn’t care so why should we?

      Concentrate on the checkatrade lads.

    Our understanding is that a fan on a long-term deal who cancels their March payment will still have a valid season ticket for the remainder of the 2018-19 season – as long as they have made their final payment for this season in January or February.

    If they don’t pay that installment, they may risk their ticket getting cancelled for the remainder of this season. But the club will contact them for further information should they cancel their payment.

      And check your pockets too to make sure the club hierarchy haven’t been rifling through them,when they distracted you with lies about a takeover,
      Oh,and check your eyeballs,the sockets and your Granny’s false teeth are still in the glass by her bed –
      you need to be vigilant when the club hierarchy are around

  • Angelswithdirtyfaces

    Bullet dodged – we haven’t drawn Newport County

  • Squintytoonarmy

    We’ll take 6,000 fans to Lancashire in a crowd of 11,000. Joselu will bag a hatrick including a 95th minute winner.

  • Mrkgw

    Blackburn vs Watford then.


    • Wezza

      Beat men to it haha.
      With the Cardiff amen xkming up that weekend no chance of playing the top players. Thankfully we have a strong squad that has been invested in…

  • Paul Patterson

    I’d actually forgot about the draw. Oh well . .

  • Dillon Tovak

    I wonder who Watford will play in the fifth round?

  • Aussie Bill

    Give a couple of the U23’s especially young Sorensen a run and see if we can have a bit of a go, what have we to lose?

  • Carl Marks

    Irrelevant news –
    the players will be instructed to “throw the game” against Blackburn.
    Anyone travelling to the game must be mad – spending money on a pre planned pantomime.

  • Carl Marks

    Instead of giving interviews to Sky,
    wouldn’t an article on Crimewatch be more appropriate??!!!

    Twenty or so years ago, we got to a couple of FA CUP finals; now we can’t beat a Championship team at SJP. How are the mighty fallen.
