    Swansea home in cup

    You are wrong. The number of the ball corresponds to the number of the match from the 4th round on.

    No, you have the number of the tie you played. The winner of Cardiff v Fulham was always going to be ball 21

    Just as well then. We don't need that kind of distraction this season.

    What do you mean?

    FA Cup Numbers

    First Round
    1-48 assigned to L1, L2 clubs, who are sorted into alphabetically order. So Accrington Stanley number 1, Yeovil 48.

    Matches in Qualifiers are numbered, so Wrexham v Bognor Regis may have been number 1 (first tie drawn out in qualifying round). They are assigned 49. Match 2 50, Match 3 51 etc etc

    So, let's say Accrington Stanley v Wrexham is the 18th match drawn in Round 1, the winners are given ball 18 in Round 2.

    Round 3. 1-44 given to the Prem,Champ clubs in alphabetical order. So AFC Bournemouth are 1, Wolves are 44. Numbers 45-64 are given to games 1-20 (in that order) from Round 2.

    Morning G B, still on BLUETIT watch I see.

    At least when you're on my case, you are leaving the "Captain of WALES" alone.
