Before the third round is finished, so at least two balls in the fifth round draw will have three names on it. Can’t have happened many times can it?

How will they do it? Will it not just be “Winner of first tie drawn” v “Winner of second tie drawn”?

In other words, the fourth round draw sets out the fifth round draw?

Hosted by Reshmin Chowdhury and conducted by Peter Crouch, both draws will be made back-to-back to aid with fixture scheduling and will form part of BT Sport 1’s pre-match coverage of the third round tie between Stockport County and West Ham United.

This changes the competition profoundly. Knowing your next two rounds could make the difference between sending out the reserves or going for it.

if we drew Wycombe in round 4 would Knight and Muskwe be banned from playing or would we have to give permission, everywhere else they would just be allowed to play but here, in the PL at least its not permitted?

If we did get them and had a say we should let them play, good test of where they are compared to our squad

(j) Temporary (loan) Transfers

(i) A player on a domestic temporary (loan) transfer (including a player on loan either to or from a Welsh Club that competes in the Competition in the current season) is ineligible to compete in the Challenge Cup Competition unless permission to do so is given by the lending Club in writing (which, for the avoidance of doubt, can include appropriate wording and/or the completion of tick boxes in any loan form) and a copy is received by The Association by the Registration Deadline for that round. Any permissions must clearly state that the player has approval to play in The FA Challenge Cup Competition. A player who is registered on a Scholarship for work experience may play for another Club, subject to written permission being given by the Club that he is registered to and provided that such permission is received by The Association by the Registration Deadline for that round.

(ii) For all rounds other than the Final, a player recalled to his original Club from temporary (loan) transfer, in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement, may only represent his original Club if any such recall has been received and accepted by The Association by the Registration Deadline for that round.

(iii) A player on temporary (loan) transfer is eligible to play in a match rescheduled as a result of a postponement, abandonment or in a match ordered to be replayed, if transferred permanently by the lending Club to the loaning Club after the Registration Deadline for that round, provided that the player was eligible to play for the loaning Club in the original match and the players registration with the loaning Club is continuous from the Registration Deadline for that round through to the date of the replay or rescheduled match.

(iv) The Association will not give permission for players on loan or work experience to play against the lending Club.
Not allowed.

thanks, silly rule IMO but it is what it is
I disagree. Imagine the accusations if Knight scores an own goal and Muskwe misses an absolute sitter.

then people need to grow up, every other league can manage to cope with the concept so we should be able to as well

I’m impressed. Have you checked the rules in American Samoa as well (despite the time zone difference)?.

No replays so it could only be exactly two balls.

Can’t have happened many times can it?
In the big freezes of the 60s, it would have happened as few times. And even more than three names at times.
