FA Cup derby set for Friday 5th January

Everton's FA Cup Third Round tie has been scheduled for Friday 5th January and will be broadcast live by the BBC.

The game against Liverpool has been given a 7:55pm kick-off but will not be a test bed for video replays as originally thought as it was deemed "too high profile" a fixture for the technology to be trialled.

Ha first thing that came to my mind as well, Jamie.

This is one game I will gladly watch from the armchair.

A bit unfair on all the Scandinavian and London reds!

I stopped going to Anfield about 7 or 8 seasons ago, after leaving the Anny Road to find the back of my coat covered in spit from our friendly neighbours in the upper stand. I fancy this one though, Jimmy @ 2.

Then again, let's get this Sunday out the way first eh.

Played them once before on a Friday evening. Loads well pissed, evil atmosphere. Why Merseyside police don't veto this is beyond me. Should be played early game Saturday or Sunday.

The blue city is all ours. The city's all ours. You'll miss the last flight to Oslo. The city's all ours.

Absolutely brilliant. Can't wait to knock 'em out the cup. Bring on the Tic-tacs.

Jason (#7).

Or after Klopp slags our tactics rotten and claims we didn't go there to play after we beat them 1-0 with a late late goal:

"It's never your fault."
"It's never your fauuuuult."
"You lost the derby, but it wasn't your fault."
