Manchester City will face Watford at the Etihad Stadium in the Third Round of the FA Cup. The game will be played over the weekend of 5 & 6 January 2013 depending on whether ITV or ESPN decide to show the game, live.

Who remembers when FA Cup replays could be replayed until a team won. No penalty shootouts in those days.

The Third Round encounter way back in the 80's took three matches to finally decide a winner.

The replays could go on for weeks hence the reason why there is only one replay these days. Must admit I like it the way it is now.
