Are you ready for some magic? It’s the Magic of the Cup! The FA Cup, that is, and the third round kicks off in earnest today! Tottenham don’t play until Sunday morning (frustratingly, at the same time as Spurs Women’s match against Manchester City) but if you love David vs. Goliath matches, potential upsets, and football featuring teams you normally don’t get to see playing in teeny-tiny stadia, this is your tournament!

This is your open thread. If you’re in the UK, most of the matches aren’t televised, sorry. However, American viewers can watch every single match on ESPN+ with a subscription.

As always, links to illegal streams in the comments will get your butt banned. The usual match thread rules apply.
