The third round of the FA Cup draw was made today which will be played in early January and Derby County drew Forest!

That is Forest Green Rovers, a non-league side who play in the Conference and in the relegation zone there.

Interesting place to play, but another chance for Derby to embrass themselves in the cup :sleepy::D

Very happy with this draw, miles better than what seemed to be our annual draw against a championship side we've played a million times recently, would like to go, dont know what the ticket situation will be so will have to see.

what a joke, 2:0 down and still 20 minutes haven't passed yet

this team looks really really bad, Forest Green look like a Premiership side, they know how to pass while Derby send mindless long balls up field

also the yellow kits look horrible

2:2 :D

Albrechtsen from a header with a set piece just outside the penalty area. Derby still playing long ball, nothing great but have still managed to equalize

4:3 Derby now with a few minutes to play. Forest Green took a lead again but Green quickly scored and now Forest are a man down and goal down.

well Derby win and move on to the 4th round, but in typical fashion they still look ugly even when scoring four goals :howler:

Nottingham Forest at home for the 4th round...should be more interesting this time, Forest playing better and Davies returns to Pride Park

You could see that draw coming :howler: as long as they dont appoint that clown Attwell to referee. With what happened in the league game and now Davies going to them, promise to be a very "tasty" affair :howler:

Derby are going to Europe via the Carling Cup, where they will most likely lose to a side from Latvia :D

Yeah its nice and if we were in a better league position, I might get over excited about the FA Cup and our success so far (who am I kidding, i'll be buzzing against Derby!).

Gutted at the moment though mate, looks like the Legend's son is coming to be your messiah and not ours.....nevermind, after he's got a few years experience at Derby, he can follow 'ol big ed' and win the Prem and back to back European Cups with Forest!

You Reds!!!!:heart:
