2224: My Manchester City-supporting colleague is now predicting his club will buy a country and win the World Cup in 2010. If they sign Kaka, I'll believe anything. Anyway, I hereby give you permission to tune in to BBC Radio 5 Live now to listen to Danny Baker's 606. I'll see you tomorrow night for three cracking FA Cup ties and the small matter of Manchester United v Wigan.

2226: "Burnley - The only home win of the night. Well done."
1984IsForReal on 606

2220: And that's it. Heartbreak for QPR, who have now gone out in the third round five years running. Carling Cup semi-finalists Burnley will travel to West Brom in the fourth round.

2218: GOAL Burnley 2-1 QPR
QPR defender Damion Stewart allows a high ball to bounce instead of dealing with it and Jay Rodriguez nips in to beat Radek Cerny in the last minute of extra time. What drama.

2216: Kaka's probably hoping Manchester City do get relegated so he can run out at Vicarage Road next season. I'm sitting next to a City fan who is ridiculously pleased about this rumour. It cannot be serious though. Surely...

2214: "Re 2203: Kaka + relegation battle. Without insulting you or any other commentators Cheesy, that was the first time I had ever laughed at a Live Text comment."

2213: "Strikes me that all these away teams should have done the job at home originally! All away wins tonight!"
Anon via text on 81111

2212: Burnley keeper Brian Jensen makes a flying save to keep out Damien Delaney's drive.

2208: Chris Eagles lashes over for Burnley from a corner. Should have done better. Not long til penalty o'clock.

2206: "Great night of football, just hoping the upsets are saved for tomorrow. Come on Southend!"
Anon via text on 81111

2206: And they're back up and running at Turf Moor.

2203: It's half-time in extra-time at Turf Moor. Reports suggest Manchester City have open talks over the signing of... Kaka. Just the man you need in a relegation battle.

2201: QPR have a goal ruled out. The wonderfully-named Ramone Rose is about to shoot but the less glamorously-named Heidar Helguson - who had been offside when the ball was played - decides to have a go instead. He puts the ball in the net but the flag goes up.

2157: "Can beat all the stats tonight... Pompey have not conceded for 625 minutes in the FA Cup!"

2155: "We always looked likely to win - Bristol City had some good spells but we were always dangerous on the break and we deserved to go through. We showed tonight that we are committed to the manager. We all want to work for him and get results for him - the biggest proof of that is that we are in the next round."
Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch shows his support for under-pressure boss Tony Adams after holders Pompey move into the fourth round

2155: Eight minutes into extra time at Turf Moor. Burnley on top at the moment.

2154: West Brom wrap up victory over Peterborough so no cupset there. The Baggies are up against QPR or Burnley next. Darren Ferguson's side can focus on getting out of League One.

2152: "Please a small mention to Luton Town who have finally got to 0 points!"
Anon via text on 81111
Oh go on then...

2151: Pressure piling up on Norwich boss Glenn Roeder. His side are only out of the Championship relegation zone by goal difference and now they are dumped out of the Cup by Charlton. The Canaries were very poor tonight by all accounts.

2147: A win for Wolves over rivals Birmingham - their first since 2001 - earns them a fourth-round tie at home to Middlesbrough.

2144: Holders Portsmouth survive, their Premier League class coming through in the end. Tony Adams' side are at home to Swansea in the fourth round. The Swans have been drawn away from home in 13 of their last 14 FA Cup ties.

2142: Damien Delaney's late intervention means we'll go to extra-time at Turf Moor. But League One Leyton Orient, who were leading at half-time, go out after a 4-1 defeat by Championship Sheffield United.

2141: Damien Delaney clears off the line in injury time for QPR and in the ensuing melee, Burnley think they have scored, but Chris Eagles is flagged offside.

2141: That's a first win for Charlton under current boss Phil Parkinson and the Addicks' first win in any competition in 18 games since 4 October.

2139: Eyes upwards for the full-times. Millwall and Swansea go through, and it's the end of the road for Cup heroes Histon as well as Crewe. Cheltenham and Doncaster go again.

2137: PENALTY TO BRISTOL CITY... but it's saved. Nicky Maynard turns in the box and is clattered by Sol Campbell but Maynard's effort is too close to David James.

2136: GOAL Bristol City 0-2 Portsmouth
Swift counter-attack by Portsmouth and Nadir Belhadj unselfishly squares for Niko Kranjcar to slot in the second.

2134: Birmingham striker Cameron Jerome has a backheel cleared off the line by Andy Keogh. Meanwhile at Turf Moor, QPR's Martin Rowlands goes on a brilliant run through midfield but then ruins all his good work by blazing over from 12 yards. A great chance to wrap it up.

2132: "Pompey boss Tony Adams is fizzing with fury, prowling the edge of his technical area. His side can't keep the ball for any period of time, are sitting back and doing their best to take it to extra-time."
BBC Sport's Charlie Henderson at Ashton Gate

2131: GOAL Crewe 2-3 Millwall
After three corners in quick succession, Zak Whitbread rises unmarked to head the Lions in front but, with the way this tie has gone, let's not count any chickens...

2129: GOAL Histon 1-2 Swansea
Could Pintado be made to pay? Josh Simpson bundles home after the Swans fail to deal with a cross from the right.

Gorka Pintado spurns the opportunity to make it 3-0 to Swansea as he hits the woodwork with his penalty after Danny Naisbitt's foul on Nathan Dyer.

2124: GOAL Leyton Orient 1-4 Sheff Utd
Bit of a second-half collapse by Orient this. Greg Halford gets his second, nodding in at the far post from Kyle Naughton's right-wing cross.

2124: "I am fed up with reading "Save by David James". Please make it stop. Tie his bootlaces together. Just do something!"

2120: Paul Heffernan hits the inside of the post as Doncaster go close to breaking the deadlock at Whaddon Road. As it stands, that one's going to a replay on 20 January.

2115: GOAL Leyton Orient 1-3 Sheff Utd
Three goals in 10 minutes and it doesn't look good for the League One side now. They make a mess of a corner and the Blades sweep up the other end, Kyle Naughton tapping in the rebound after Leyton Orient keeper Glenn Morris saved the initial shot.

2115: Cameron Jerome hits the bar as Birmingham look for a way back against Wolves.

2114: I promise never to complain about a lack of goals ever again, but please make it stop now.

2109: GOAL Leyton Orient 1-2 Sheff Utd
In the space of three minutes, things have turned on their head at Brisbane Road. Darius Henderson's inch-perfect pass finds Billy Sharp in space and he fires past the helpless Glenn Morris to put Sheffield United in front.

2107: GOAL Burnley 1-1 QPR
Cross from Graham Alexander, QPR keeper Radek Cerny flaps and pushes ball into path of Robbie Blake - he shoots, but it's cleared off the line and Steven Thompson smashes in from close range.

2106: "Old habits die hard! It looks like Peter Styvar's free on the left but he's pinged for offside after Tony Adams joins his back four in raising his arm for a flag."
BBC Sport's Charlie Henderson at Ashton Gate

2105: GOAL Leyton Orient 1-1 Sheff Utd
David Cotterill's corner is flapped at by Orient goalkeeper Glenn Morris and Greg Halford swivels to fire home from close range.

2103: GOAL Crewe 2-2 Millwall
Blimey. Crewe's turn to score a quick-fire equaliser at Gresty Road. A Billy Jones free-kick causes havoc in the Millwall defence and, although it is unclear who gets the final touch, Alex striker Shaun Miller wheels away in celebration and he has been credited with the goal.

2102: GOAL Burnley 0-1 QPR
Samuel Di Carmine shoots low past the Burnley keeper from Mikele Leigertwood's pass.

2101: Peter Crouch should put Pompey 2-0 up after Younes Kaboul flicks on a long ball but prods the ball wide of Adriano Basso's right-hand post.

2059: GOAL Birmingham 0-2 Wolves
Birmingham are on the attack but a pass bounces off ref Howard Webb, allowing Wolves to counter-attack and the ball eventually comes to Michael Kightly who crosses for Sam Vokes to make it 2-0.

2058: GOAL Crewe 1-2 Millwall
A great night's work for Neil Harris, who taps home from two yards out. Not only has he put Millwall ahead against Crewe but he has now scored 112 goals for the Lions, breaking the club's goalscoring record previously held by Teddy Sheringham.
Paul Fletcher's blog on Harris

2056: Birmingham keeper Maik Taylor makes a decent early save to prevent Andy Keogh putting Wolves 2-0 up.

2054: Bristol City boss Gary Johnson reckons Peter Crouch's handball just before he went up the other end and put Portsmouth ahead was so blatant "it even looked like one on radio".

2047: "Southend is the game of the year." So says Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, whose side travel to Roots Hall tomorrow. After the embarrassing 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford, the Brazilian has also said he's planning to adopt a zonal marking system after watching his side concede five of their last six goals from set-pieces.
Scolari calls for Chelsea unity

2042: You know you missed him. It's Danny the Stat: "Turns out Peter Crouch also stands tall on Player Rater. His solitary strike at Ashton Gate has seen him rocket to a seven-breaking (it'll catch on) 7.17. Five-and-six-point-somethings for everyone else. If you don't like to see such mediocrity, get involved and "vote 'em high" (that'll catch on)."
Bristol City v Portsmouth Player Rater

2041: Half-time everywhere except London Road. Not much magic around for the neutral - except at Brisbane Road where League One Leyton Orient lead high-flying Championship side Sheffield United. The winner of that match will be at home to Norwich or Charlton.

2039: GOAL Peterborough 0-2 West Brom
Peterborough fail to clear a free-kick and Paul Robinson scrambles in a second for the Baggies.

2034: "The home fans were really beginning to find their voice - but Traore has put on the afterburners. No wonder there's a bit of a lull in the decibel levels - City are yet to win this season when they've conceded first."
BBC Sport's Charlie Henderson at Ashton Gate

2033: Michael Kightly goes close to a second for Wolves as his shot is cleared off the line by Liam Ridgewell.

2026: GOAL Birmingham 0-1 Wolverhampton
Andy Keogh beats the offside trap to latch onto a through ball from Michael Kightly and thumps the ball past Maik Taylor for 1-0.

2026: GOAL Histon 0-2 Swansea
Swansea are completely on top against Histon and they now have a second goal too. Andrea Orlandi gets away from Marlon Patterson down the right flank before pulling the ball back for Guillem Bauza to slot home from 10 yards out.

2026: GOAL Bristol City 0-1 Portsmouth
Nadir Belhadj's crossfield pass is collected by Armand Traore, who skins Liam Fontaine and get to the byeline before cutting back for Peter Crouch to slide home. Slight controversy - Crouch seemed to handle in the Pompey box before his side counter-attacked.

2025: GOAL Leyton Orient 1-0 Sheff Utd
At last the cupset is on. Matthew Kilgallon is adjudged to have handled Sean Thornton's shot and John Melligan tucks away the penalty. 41 places between the Blades, fourth in the Championship, and Orient, struggling in 21st in League One.

2024: Pompey striker David Nugent won't get many better chances than that. He makes a good run to the near post to get on the end of Peter Crouch's cross but hits the foot of the post.

2022: Not many chances at Turf Moor although QPR have just gone close with a rasping Emmanuel Ledesma shot that was smothered by Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen. Argentine winger Ledesma is highly thought of by R's fans but has not scored since 26 August.

2019: GOAL Peterborough 0-1 West Brom
Jay Simpson, in only his second game since joining on loan from Arsenal, hammers a low shot into the right-hand corner from outside the area to put the top-flight side ahead after 18 minutes at London Road.

2016: Problems at St Andrews. Smoke from a fire outside the ground is making its way over the main stand and affecting visibility.

2013: "An up-an-at-'em first quarter with the sort of all-round commitment to the cause I last saw at the sale rail at the start of January. That got ugly. This isn't. End-to-end Cup stuff. Glorious."
BBC Sport's Charlie Henderson at Ashton Gate

2012: Pompey keeper David James makes a world-class save low to his left from Marvin Elliott's header.

2010: GOAL Histon 0-1 Swansea
Spaniard Gorka Pintado puts the Championship side ahead with a screamer from 25 yards. Tough on Blue Square Premier Histon, who had made a decent start at the Glass World Stadium.

2008: It's been a good start for Bristol City... until they give the ball away in midfield. Niko Kranjcar sets up Peter Crouch from distance but it's a woeful shot.

2003: Injury news from Turf Moor. Burnley's leading goalscorer Martin Paterson was injured in the warm-up so in fact it is Robbie Blake who starts up front for the Clarets.

2001: Peterborough v West Brom is under way.

1958: First real chance of the game between Bristol City and Pompey - and it's against the run of play - Nadir Belhadj striding forward and bringing a flying save out of home keeper Adriano Basso with a 20-yard stinger.

1956: GOAL Crewe 1-1 Millwall
Crewe's lead lasts all of 69 seconds before Millwall equalise in bizarre fashion. Alex goalkeeper Steve Collis, playing his first game since 22 November, flaps at a deep cross from Scott Baron and the ball bounces off his chest and, according to referee Nigel Miller, over the line.

1955: GOAL Crewe 1-0 Millwall
Luke Murphy fires into the top corner from just outside the penalty area to put Alex ahead at Gresty Road.

1954: GOAL Norwich 0-1 Charlton
Where are you now Phil Parkinson doubters? Darren Ambrose latches on to Nicky Bailey's through ball and slots home.

1951: Come on then goals. Where are ya?

1947: They will kick off at Peterborough at 2000 GMT - too many people trying to get into their London Road ground.

1945: Sorry, sorry, the delay is at London Road, not Ashton Gate. Still waiting for confirmation though.

1943: "When was the last time the holders were eliminated in their first round of the competition?"
RafasRedsForTheTitle09 on 606
Interestingly, given the username, it was Liverpool in 2006/7 to Arsenal

1939: Well, I'm quite pleased I'm not Phil Parkinson (see 1926). He's not winning over many Charlton fans with his line-up tonight. Addicks fans need no reminding that their side are on a club record run of 17 league games without a win.

1926: "Re 1919: Phil Parkinson, why do you persist with Deon Burton up front, on his own? Can't see us scoring tonight."
Yassin_the_assasin on 606
You know I'm not Phil Parkinson right? Good, just checking.

1924: Crewe and Millwall haven't played a match since drawing 2-2 at the New Den. Lions boss Kenny Jackett was a member of Watford's 1984 FA Cup final side. That's all I know really.

1919: TEAMS Norwich v Charlton

1909: "Re 1847: Cupsets tonight to come at Histon, Leyton Orient and Peterborough, though I think Bristol City will push Portsmouth close. The home team will come out on top in the big derby at St Andrews while Kelly Brook will bring some quality assets to Britain's Got Talent. Finally if the FA Cup third round were a rollercoaster ride I would call it 'The Scolari Slayer' and place it in Southend's famous fair ground."

1908: "Re 1847: How about the "Stomach Cupsetter" for a rollercoaster name?"
gosborn180 on 606
Not bad. Got to be honest, didn't really expect anyone to run with that one...

1905: "We really wanted to play the Donny game at the weekend but the frost set in but at least the last game in our mind is the Pompey game."
Bristol City boss Gary Johnson

1902: "Re 1847: Kelly Brook will bring two things to Britain's Got Talent."
Glovergilly on 606
Yeah but what two things...? Oh right. I get it.

1857: Boyce (see last post) has already stolen one of my dazzling FA Cup stats, but here's another: West Brom, who replay Peterborough, have played in 20 FA Cup semi-finals, bettered only by Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton and Liverpool.

1855: "Tell me QPR are going to beat Burnley tonight Cheesy? Surely one win in eight years ain't too much to ask."
Boyce, a nervous R's fan, via text on 81111
They will win tonight Boyce... Or Burnley will. One of those things will definitely happen.

1853: After you've stayed with me for the entirety of this evening's football feast - and only after - you may tune into BBC Radio 5 Live and listen to Danny Baker. I could tell you what's on the show - but he's done it for me via the magic of 606.
Danny on 606

1851: "I have my first exam of my final year in uni tomorrow so not feeling too great. Please Swansea don't let me down and make me feel even worse."
Dave via text on 81111

1847: Where will the cupsets come? Who'll come out on top in the big derby at St Andrews? What will Kelly Brook bring to Britain's Got Talent? And if the FA Cup third round were a rollercoaster ride, what would it be called? Should you wish to get involved in tonight's proceedings, your options are two-fold: send me a text on 81111 or dip a toe in the treacherous waters of 606.
Join the debate on 606

1840: Ready for another ride on the rollercoaster they call 'FA Cup third round'? Actually, they'd probably call it something much more exciting if it actually were a rollercoaster... Anyway, I'm getting bogged down. Nine FA Cup ties tonight, five of which can go all the way to penalties. Oooh, I've gone all gushy like Kate Winslet.
