That's not strictly true ...they added AFC in 1971
They were formed as Boscombe FC became Bournemouth & Boscombe  then in 1971 became what they r today.

Ah, fair enough. But they still didn't become ball number two when they changed name, it was when they got promoted. I'll claim to be half right, then. 😀

Accrington Stanley only one point off the playoffs for promotion to the Championship so not beyond the realms of possibility we could be ball four next season.

We need someone who is an authority on history of  fa cup draw numbering. I reckon in the olden days when all the 2nd round games would be played Sat 3pm and the 3rd round draw would be on the radio monday the numbers were allocated alphabetically for all 64 teams with a few either/or thrown in.
e.g. Number 6....Birmingham City... will play at home to..... Number 1....Altrincham.

Seems like it was the current format at least as far back as 1947, otherwise Hartlepool(s) or Brighton would have had a lower number than Portsmouth and Colchester would have had a lower number than West Ham.

Think there's a week between this and the mad xmas period of games this year so no excuse not to put a full strength side out compared to previous years imo as I'd like to see us have a good go at getting to later stages.

Obviously need a bit of luck with the draw as we got in 2015 with home ties v lower league teams. Home to Morecambe would do nicely.

It will really depend on how screwed they are with injuries and by January their progress in the CL and league. This will be the least important competitor for Klopp who is already complaining about fixture congestion and not having enough players.

Liverpool always play their kids in 3rd round. Can remember them going to Wolves two years ago and they put out a team not much stronger than what they played v us in the cup last year.

And they'll have a far weaker team than what they put out in the 7-2 anyway with all their injuries.

Hopefully we won't mess about and will go in full strength given there's a week's gap between Jan 2nd games and FA cup.

Have we ever drawn a non-league team?

Loads between 1879 and 1888 (starting with Stafford Road and including Small Heath Alliance) plus Gravesend & Northfleet.

Gold star if you know the one before that.

I reckon either Millwall or QPR in the thirties. And we lost.

Pretty sure Spurs were still non league when they cheated us.

I've looked it up and I was wrong, but there is a more recent one than Spurs.

Hmmm... so I was right after all, admittedly by cheating and having two guesses. I just looked it up and thought it was Reading, must have skimmed past the QPR one somehow.

Ah, I know what I did wrong. I was only checking defeats. We beat QPR in 1920 on our way to our sixth cup win. Reading were the last non-league team to knock us out. In 1912, the year before our fifth, if anyone cares.

Unless I've missed another one somewhere.

Here's a question when was the last time we played Blues in the FA Cup?

Heres a question. Which team won an FA Cup final and had two captains ?

Yeah that is quite a stat, particularly when you think how many times, we've played  them in the League Cup since the 63 final.

We were drawn to play them in the 5th round draw in 1955 providing we won the replay against Doncaster Rovers, the cup tie went to 4 replays when we eventually ended up losing 3-1.

We must have been distracted, worried about the Titanic's maiden voyage barely two months hence.

Shameful. A classic third round tie amongst two of the FA cup greats will be concluded even before the round kicks off properly.

Two ? They didn't reach a final until 1965.

In a display of some balance and symmetry we won it 7 times up to 57, they’ve won it 7 times since then. We need to break this hoodoo.....

Not as much playing them in the FA Cup.

Does anyone remember the FA cup game at VP in the 80’s when they by one goal when they took a free kick to score before the Villa had a chance to regroup? SOSAC

Heres a question. Which team won an FA Cup final and had two captains ?

There’s a bon mot about The captain and t’neil, in there.

Or did one go off injured, which wouldn’t be as exciting?
