The earliest rounds of the FA Cup could, for those participating, be considered to have a small amount of nuisance value about them. Clubs seeking to build a little rhythm to their league seasons find that the cup interjects every two or three weeks or so, and those that are successful can find themselves with a backlog of cancelled fixtures that can cause major headaches later on in the season.

While Darlington have grabbed most of the recent headlines in the race to the financial bottom that the bottom of the Blue Square Premier seems to consist of this season, Kettering Town remains in a critical condition itself.

 On Saturday, their home match against Forest Green Rovers was called off at lunchtime, which is unlikely to have done the stricken clubs bank account a great deal of good, and this morning the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph, a local newspaper which has been criticised by some supporters as being too ready in the past to toe the Ladak party line, also stepped off the fence to deliver its viewpoint of the recent difficulties that the club has faced.

It's one of Indonesia's most firey encounters. Persebaya v Arema. Two East Javan giants with large, passionate support.

There is, perhaps, little surprising in the fact that the most confusing tie of the Third Round of the FA Cup should involve Wrexham. The Blue Square Premier club the last non-league club still involved in this year's competition have had possibly the most convoluted twelve months of any side in the entire English league system, and this extended into the arrangements for this match against Brighton & Hove Albion, following their 1-1 draw at The American Express Community Stadium a week and a half ago.

There exists evidence to the contrary that a man's home is his castle. To begin, seeing as how there are so few men living in castles these days, owing to their relatively poor resale value and faulty electrical wiring incapable of  handling the wattage necessary to capture the beautiful game in breathtaking HD, castles just aren't prime real estate these days.
