2209: Right that's me - get involved with some actual chat, where you can speak to real people and everything, on 5 Live's 606 with Tim Lovejoy.

2204: In Hereford's victory over Tranmere, goalscorer Simon Johnson, with 7.67 out of 10, was your man-of-the-match. Man City defender Corluka was your pick in his side's victory over West Ham, averaging 7.16, while Michael Owen was top dog in Newcastle's 4-1 thumping of Stoke.

2201: Here's some chat from our player ratings: you voted Havant keeper Kevin Scriven as man-of-the-match in their upset over Swansea. You gave him an average of 8.15 out of 10.

"You can't deny the magic of the FA Cup, it's just brilliant!"

2158: What an evening of FA football, tremendous stuff. Apart from the Man City-West Ham game. What match did they have on the box again?

2156: FULL-TIME Man City 1-0 West Ham All over at Eastlands and Sven-Goran Eriksson's side advance - they will travel to Sheffield United for their fourth-round clash.

2155: Time running out for the Irons up at Eastlands and by the sound of it it's been an absolute shocker of a match.

2152: FULL-TIME Newcastle 4-1 Stoke
What a start for Kevin Keegan - Newcastle make short work of Stoke despite playing 60 minutes with 10 men after the dismissal of Emre.

2149: GOAL Newcastle 4-1 Stoke
Consolation goal for Stoke up at Newcastle, Liam Lawrence carving himself out some space on the edge of the box and curling a right-foot shot past Shay Given. Good strike that, but I can't see it taking the gloss off King Kev's night.

2148: My mistake - Hereford are actually at home to Cardiff in the next round...sorry...

2144: FULL-TIME Havant & Waterlooville 4-2 Swansea
Minnows Havant are through! Massive upset that for the Blue Square South side, Anfield here we come! It's all gone old-school down in Hampshire, with fans streaming onto the pitch, and there's no attempt to clear them, as there shouldn't be. Marvellous stuff.

2141: Two minutes to play at Westleigh and surely that's the last chance for Swansea as a goal-mouth melee comes to nothing. Andy Robinson it was with the shot against the post. By my reckoning, that's three shots back off the woodwork for the visitors.

2139: FULL-TIME Hereford 1-0 Tranmere
Home side Hereford have set up a fourth round tie away at Cardiff courtesy of a Simon Johnson strike.

2135: GOAL Newcastle 4-0 Stoke The Magpies are out of sight and it's an all-out knees-up at St James' Park. Charles N'Zogbia squares for Damien Duff and the Ireland winger slots the ball past Stoke keeper Steve Simonsen.

2135: GOAL Man City 1-0 West Ham City are ahead at Eastlands! Martin Petrov crossesw to the far post, Rolando Bianchi heads against the post and Blumer Elano dives in bravely to head home.

2131: Ashley really does look amused by his little coup. I wish I could say I was that amused when I last visited his West End flagship store Lillywhites. Used to be a cracking little place where you could get croquet sets and 900 tennis raquets, now you can't move for cheap, affordable sportswear. Disgraceful.

2128: GOAL Newcastle 3-0 Stoke
James Milner makes it 3-0 for the Magpies, breaking free after a veeeery long ball from defence and lashing a right-footed shot into the bottom right-hand corner. Rory Delap had a chance at the other end seconds earlier, and should have done better with his free header.

2126: There's Sir Bobby Robson in the crowd, looking like a cross between late jazz impresario George Melly and Bugsy Spiegel. He looks like he's going to pull out a Tommy Gun and start strafing the punters below with bullets.

2124: And it was so nearly 4-3 at Havant! Leon Britton smashes the ball against the bar after good work from Thomas Butler down the right. Magnificent defensive work from Willie Whitelaw, mopping up at the back and setting Butler free.

2122: It's so nearly 5-2 at Havant. Richard Pacquette - who has played something of a blinder to be fair - crosses and Son of Joe rises high to head the ball, but it loops over with Dorus De Vries struggling in the Swansea goal.

2122: Jon "The Beast" Parkin has been substituted for Stoke. Not sure who's replaced him, I'll endeavour to find out and will let you know...Salif Diao it is who's on...

2118: Thomas Butler of Swansea strikes a post down at Westleigh! Right-foot shot, the keeper beaten. Angel Rangel it was who set him up. I am tempted to laugh, but glass houses and all that.

2116: GOAL Hereford 1-0 Tranmere
Heavy traffic from Tranmere but Hereford wide-man Simon Johnson picks the ball up 40 yards out, weaves towards the box, and cleverly curls the ball past Danny Coyne's outstreched palm.

2114: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 4-2 Swansea
Oh my giddy aunt, Havant have reopened a two-goal lead down in Hampshire! Delirium. That's the only word for it. Sheer delirium among the home fans after a superbly-taken header by Tom "Son of Joe" Jordan, who glances past Dorus De Vries from Brett Poate's cross from the right.

2109: Swansea fashion a dangerous opening on the break, but Andy Robinson's curling effort flies just past the far post. There's a chap sat behind Keegan wearing a grey Lyle and Scott sweater. I went into buy a similar effort in my local clothing emporium only to discover that they're 75. 75 for a sweater! Just because it's got a yellow bird on it! Anyway, I popped next door to H&M and picked up a sweater AND and shirt for 25. You do the math. Only thing is, they'll fall apart after one wash.

2107: The second half is under way up at Newcastle. Here's some chat from Shearer about Keegan and stuff...wait a minute, the story's not up yet, will stick it up in a minute.

2104: Players are back out after the interval at St James' and we will have play in a couple of minutes. Leon Britton blazes a left-foot shot over for Swansea from just outside the box. Malcolm Rifkind it was with the through-ball after some lovely interplay with Cecil Parkinson.

"Emre must feel really hard done by, the tackle he was dismissed for wasn't even half as bad as the one on him. That is Uriah Rennie for you!"

2058: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 3-2 Swansea
Richard Pacquette fluffs a great chance for Havant to make it 4-1. And how he'll regret that - Swansea go on the attack, Guillem Bauza hits a shot which rebounds off the inside of the post and falls kindly for Jason Scotland who sidefoots home. Will the drama never end? WILL IT?

2056: We are back under way at Westleigh, and Tom Jordan, son of Joe, is on for Havant. Also under way at Hereford, where we have some action: five minutes into the second half, Hereford striker Theo Robinson heads against the bar after a high, hanging cross deep from the right by Simon Johnson. The famous Meadow End (think Ronnie Radford) at Edgar Street scream in anguish. A close shave for Tranmere.

2053: One can only begin to imagine the scenes in the St James' Park bar at half-time. There'll be lepers in there, blind people, Terry McDermott will rock up with fives loaves and a couple of fishes - it's mayhem up there folks, mayhem...

2049: Keegan pressing the flesh as the half-time whistles blows - he's got Geordies all over him like an Asda suit. As the man to my right just pointed out, he won't be buying the drinks at half-time...

2043: It has been confirmed that Castillo has suffered a dislocated shoulder up at Eastlands, which is a choker for the City striker. Keegan busy signing autographs over at St James' Park while owner Mike Ashley looks decidedly smug, like a boy who knows he has just pulled the best-looking treacle at a youth club disco.

"Oh my God! I support Havant and Waterlooville and they are 3-1 up. If they win and get a trip to Anfield I will go to watch the match naked."

2038: It's half-time at Havant, and what a first 45 minutes that was for the Hampshire minnows, who ply their trade in the Blue Square South League. Don't ask...Man City's Mexican striker Nery Castillo has been stretchered off at Eastlands...

2036: We have some action at Eastlands: Boa Morte crosses and Ashton's volley is blocked by City goalkeeper Joe Hart. Struggling to keep up with all this folks, this is ruddy mental...

2032: GOAL Newcastle 2-0 Stoke
Just a minute after losing Emre, Newcastle double their lead, Claudio Cacapa heading home a corner at the near post. Half-time at Hereford, where it remains goalless.

What a match at Westleigh. You can keep your shenanigans at Newcastle - Kevin Scriven has potentially written himself into Havant folklore with a superb stop from Leon Britton's spot-kick. The kick came after Guillem Bauza was clumsily brought down in the box by Philip Warner.

2030: RED CARD: Emre
Newcastle down to 10 men - it's going off like a box of faulty fireworks all over the grounds. Emre is given a straight red for a shocking tackle on John Eustace. Emre, who was the victim of a terrible tackle minutes earlier by Eustace, catches the Stoke player high on the shin. Awful and the first red of the new era of Keegan.

2028: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 3-1 Swansea
Did someone mention the word 'Cupset'? Just hold on a second, Swansea are back in this. Guillem Bauza tries his luck for Swansea and the ball loops high into the net, seemingly via a deflection.

2027: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 3-0 Swansea
Remarkable. Quite simply remarkable. Richard Pacquette's shot is mis-hit, but it turns into a brilliant pass for Rocky Baptiste and the striker has a simple tap-in from three yards. Havant are among the lowest-ranked teams ever to reach the third round - and a place in the fourth round beckons with Liverpool awaiting.

2025: Bit of studs-up from John Eustace and Emre has a nasty golf-ball sized lump on his shin to show for it. That was right in front of the referee and the Turk has got the raving hump that Eustace wasn't punished.

2022: Keegan's first words to journalists on entering the stadium: "It's great to be back." The bloke sat next to the left of him looks a lot like former Essex and England all-rounder Derek Pringle. Apparently Mrs Keegan is in the hood as well. Bet she's over the moon that Kev has decided to uproot from Marbella and take on an extremely stressful job that he really doesn't need...

2019: News reaches me that King Kev has arrived at St James' Park...AND HERE HE RUDDY IS!!! AS IF BY MAGIC, THE MESSIAH HAS ENTERED THE STADIUM! HE WAS HOVERING! I'M TELLING YOU HE HOVERED INTO THE STADIUM LIKE A GIANT KESTREL! Ruddy awful leather jacket though, he looks less like the Messiah and more like the bloke who owns the catering shop downstairs from me.

"I hate my life. My mother insists on messing up my mind the night before an incredibly important history exam, so I will fail, and to make things better, I can't watch the football because of the whole 'not talking to her' thing. ANYONE got any advice?"

2014: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 2-0 Swansea
Crazy scenes in Hampshire. A corner from the right falls to Jamie Collins whose shot through a crowd of players takes a deflection and winds up in the net with Dorus De Vries helpless. A trip to Anfield suddenly looks a distinct possibility for the minnows.

2009: GOAL Newcastle 1-0 Stoke
And it's the first goal of the third Keegan era at St James' Park - and it comes from Michael Owen, the England striker pouncing after a goal-mouth scramble to give Newcastle the lead. I have been accused of anti-Newcastle bias on the 606 message boards, with one man screaming: "Ben Dirs' bitterness towards NUFC is coming across loud and clear." My brother used to support Newcastle as a kid, but I got on rather well with him. Plus, I've always rather liked their strip, so no beef from me.

2007: Heroics in goal from Havant keeper Kevin Scriven keep Swansea at bay. And, shortly afterwards, Mo Harkin fashions a shooting chance for the home side, but it flashes narrowly over.

2006: Stoke fashion another chance at St James', Ricardo Fuller surging into the box and beating one man before his shot is smothered by Given. Michael Owen then has Newcastle's first sniff of goal, curling a right-footed effort over from 20 yards.

2004: We are under way at St James' Park, and it's Stoke with the first chance, Shay Given parrying a shot into the path of Ryan Shawcross, but the defender flashing into the side netting from a tight angle.

1958: News in that King Kev has entered the building up in Newcastle - whether he arrived by sedan chair has yet to be confirmed. They're now playing Football's Coming Home inside St James' Park - it's verging on hysterical up there, I think the city of Newcastle might fold in on itself and disappear up Keegan's backside when he finally strolls onto the pitch. Although we're not sure that's going to happen yet...

1954: GOAL Havant & Waterlooville 1-0 Swansea
Extraordinary scenes at Westleigh Park as non-league Havant take an early lead against Swansea. Gary Monk dives in to try to clear a wicked curling cross by Mo Harkin, but only succeeds in sending the ball past Swansea goalkeeper De Vries. The Press Association credit the goal to Richard Pacquette, although the Swansea man looked as though he got the final touch.

1950: Slight delay at Havant, but we're under way at Westleigh Park also. Extraordinary scenes at St James' Park, where loads of fans have already had King Kev's name emblazoned across the back of their Newcastle strips.

1945: Right, play is about to get under way at Edgar Street where Hereford are playing host to Tranmere. In fact, it's under way...

Newcastle make two changes from the team that lost 6-0 at Manchester United on Saturday, with Mark Viduka and Emre coming in for suspended midfield duo Alan Smith and Nicky Butt.

Stoke are without injured full-backs Carl Dickinson and Andy Wilkinson so Gabriel Zakuani and Danny Pugh deputise, while Jon Parkin partners Ricardo Fuller up front with Richard Cresswell starting from a wide position.

1944: TEAM NEWS:
West Ham skipper Lucas Neill returns from a hamstring injury as part of a strong side, which also includes Lee Bowyer and Dean Ashton. Manchester City bring in Stephen Ireland in place of Nedum Onuoha in the only change from the side that lost at Everton on Saturday.

"Come on Swansea! Hopefully we can teach those non-leaguers a lesson or two tonight, and refuse to be bullied into their physical battle by playing football instead." chrisp on 606

1940: TEAM NEWS:
Havant & Waterlooville field the same side which battled to a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium in the first tie, including Brett Poate, who was sent off, and goal hero Rocky Baptiste. Swansea's Alan Tate and Ferrie Bodde are suspended. But apart from that it's the Swans' - who are 83 places higher than Havant in football's pyramid system - strongest team.

Havant's tiny Westleigh Park is packed to the rafters with fans sniffing an upset. It would be fair to say that Swansea - fresh from the relative luxury of League One - will not be too smitten by the 'rustic' charms on offer in Hampshire.

1939: TEAM NEWS:
Hereford manager Graham Turner welcomes back French midfielder Toumani Diagouraga from suspension meaning Sam Gwynne returns to the bench after making a surprise return in the 3-1 win over Shrewsbury on Saturday.

Tranmere are still without Jamaica international defender Ian Goodison but defender Shane Sheriff returns after serving a one-match ban.

"Havant & Wooterlooville will play their style of football, which is non-league style. Expect to see crunching tackles, and possibly a few cards (of the red sort)."

1930: In contrast to Gary Lineker, former Newcastle skipper and MOTD pundit Gavin Peacock reckons Shearer will take a role at Newcastle: "I wouldn't rule out someone like Shearer being brought in by Keegan as an assistant or a coach to learn his trade. Kevin's an empowerer, he likes to see people grow under his influence." So, not only is Keegan The Messiah and King Kev, he's also The Empowerer. No pressure son, no pressure...

1921: England coach Fabio Capello is being investigated for tax fraud by prosecutors in Turin, according to some wire company or other. Apparently his right-hand man Franco Baldini is on scouting duty up at Eastlands. Rob Green might want to have a good game, that England goalkeeper's jersey is well and truly up for grabs...

1915: The consensus in this office is that Newcastle have made, as Ron Atkinson was fond of saying, a serious ricket. Keegan won't have the same spending power as the big four, the big players won't want to go there - it's as simple as that. Who do the Newcastle fans think he is? The Messiah? Hang on a second, they do don't they?

1912: For his part, Gary Lineker doesn't reckon his MOTD mate Alan Shearer will take up a job as Keegan's number two: "I can't see Alan as a number two," Lineker said. "It was mooted he was interested in the job, I'd be very surprised if he went along on those terms."

1902: News reaches us that the Newcastle-Stoke kick-off has been put back 15 minutes to 2000 GMT because of the late rush for tickets. Apparently most of the city are expecting Kev to be presented on the pitch tonight, although the club have refused to confirm this.

1900: Apparently they've been queuing round the block at St James' Park since just gone 4pm - The Messiah is back in town, and we could be in for a ripper of a night up in Newcastle.

No news yet as to whether King Kev will be showing his face for the replay against Stoke. Meanwhile at TV Centre, Alan Shearer has been sighted and half our office are currently trying to nail him down for a chat. They need to be careful, sharp elbows that Shearer...
