Oh, it's absolutely brilliant. Oh, this is getting better and better!

:00:16.:00:26.

Ronaldo! History Boys indeed. They've won the Cup, they've won the

:00:27.:00:32.

Cup. He's done it. He has done it! Good

:00:33.:00:39.

afternoon, everybody. Welcome to Sincil Bank Stadium. It was here 11

:00:40.:00:45.

days ago that Adam Marriott picked up the ball there, threaded it

:00:46.:00:52.

through to Nathan Arnold, who round the Ipswich goalkeeper, stuck it

:00:53.:00:56.

into the back of the net and sent Lincoln to the FA Cup. This is our

:00:57.:01:02.

home for the entirety of Football Focus. And we look to the fixtures

:01:03.:01:07.

and Josh McEachran paints the penalty spot, and can Lincoln do it

:01:08.:01:12.

again? Lincoln are in great, great form and I think will fancy their

:01:13.:01:16.

chances. Throbbing with anticipation of what

:01:17.:01:21.

is to come. Ipswich to win it here. Four minutes of stoppage time to

:01:22.:01:26.

play. Now, here are Lincoln on the break. Arnold's quick. Arnold's

:01:27.:01:36.

through... Arnold's the hero. Lincoln City are through in the

:01:37.:01:40.

dying seconds. Well, we wondered if this was going

:01:41.:01:45.

to be an historic night, it's going to be.

:01:46.:01:47.

What a night. What a moment! They've embarrassed

:01:48.:01:56.

Ipswich Town. Utterly unbelievable. I tell you what, if there was a baby

:01:57.:02:04.

born in Lincoln Town in hospital tonight, I hope it's called Lincoln!

:02:05.:02:11.

There we are, then. Non-league national team, Lincoln, taking on

:02:12.:02:16.

Brighton. As you can imagine for a big game like this, they are in

:02:17.:02:24.

early! Look at them all! Yay! Very excited, it is understandable, and

:02:25.:02:31.

the FA Cup is here, and l not to disappoint you, we have Dion Dublin

:02:32.:02:35.

and Graeme Le Saux for the show as well. They love love you, Dionne,

:02:36.:02:39.

they love you. Somebody has to.

:02:40.:02:43.

You can tell it's a big week, Honey G is performing.

:02:44.:02:49.

We missed out then! We are focussing on Lincoln but Lincoln and Sutton.

:02:50.:02:54.

Two non-league sides for the Cup. It is fantastic.

:02:55.:02:59.

It is rare. Very rare. A few years back, a long way back, when I was

:03:00.:03:04.

playing. You know, it is great. Great for the clubs, and for the

:03:05.:03:09.

revenue. Great to see so many kids. Yes, it's a great day out, as we

:03:10.:03:14.

often say but speak to the fans, they think they have a real chance.

:03:15.:03:18.

Lincoln, a real sense of community here, they feel that they can do it

:03:19.:03:23.

again? The team, the club, the town, city, it has a huge identity built

:03:24.:03:28.

around the success of what happened on the pitch. You can see what

:03:29.:03:32.

happened at Ipswich, the character and the quality. They deserve to win

:03:33.:03:36.

it, why not. It is a fantastic opportunity.

:03:37.:03:41.

I believe you must be honest, if you think we go in, win this one, we

:03:42.:03:46.

could win that one, that disappointment could be take tonne

:03:47.:03:51.

the league, so be realistic. Let me introduce you to Owen and

:03:52.:03:56.

Devlin. How old are you, deaf Lynne? Four years old.

:03:57.:04:04.

No, I've five years old! That's all right. Good maths. I will ask a

:04:05.:04:09.

maths question. What do you think that the score will be? 1-0.

:04:10.:04:17.

To Lincoln? Yeah! Well, that is worth a round of applause.

:04:18.:04:21.

Owen, what about you? I'm eight years old! And the score? 1-0.

:04:22.:04:29.

Determined. OK, look down the camera and say this is what is coming up on

:04:30.:04:35.

Football Focus! This is what is coming up on Football Focus.

:04:36.:04:40.

Wayne Rooney on 250, not out. It was a proud moment to get to that

:04:41.:04:46.

stage. We're in Lincoln but we can't leave

:04:47.:04:52.

Sutton out, can they write another chapter in their rich history? Can

:04:53.:04:57.

Tottenham tame the beast? The funny thing is that people think I can eat

:04:58.:05:02.

loads but that has hit the spot. And Josh McEachran on going back to

:05:03.:05:07.

the Bridge with Brentford. I didn't expect to walk into Chelsea

:05:08.:05:11.

first, they are one of the best teams in the world. And genuinely

:05:12.:05:17.

concerned, I think that Owen has a job. A future! Incredible! Right,

:05:18.:05:25.

pipe down, I'm the boss around here! Steady on! Steady on! Right, let's

:05:26.:05:32.

show you the FA Cup ties this weekend. Sorry, Owen. A beautiful

:05:33.:05:38.

shot of lip can cathedral, and Owen told us it is the tallest building

:05:39.:05:40.

in the world, by the way. Arsene Wenger in the stands for

:05:41.:06:07.

Arsenal's trip to Southampton. Four games on Sunday.

:06:08.:06:14.

Gabby Logan has been to see the record breakers to see if dedication

:06:15.:06:27.

is really what you need. Rooney! A magnificent goal from

:06:28.:06:34.

Wayne Rooney. Tell us a little bit about what it

:06:35.:06:40.

feels like to score in the Premier League for Manchester United? It's

:06:41.:06:44.

an amazing feeling. You score a goal. The initial feeling is like

:06:45.:06:50.

you're playing football under water and when you score the goal it's

:06:51.:06:55.

like you come up for air and you can hear the crowd, the atmosphere for

:06:56.:06:59.

that four or five seconds. It's mad feeling.

:07:00.:07:03.

Can you, if you had to record it, the match, would you know how the

:07:04.:07:06.

goal developed or came about? I think so.

:07:07.:07:13.

Go on, then, your favourite goal. The favourite was the Manchester

:07:14.:07:17.

City goal. We were both fighting for the title.

:07:18.:07:21.

So the circumstances of the goal? Yes, the goal at Newcastle was

:07:22.:07:25.

better but for the moment, the best feeling, I would say it was that

:07:26.:07:30.

one. ARCHIVE: Russian country's delivery,

:07:31.:07:34.

oh, a sensational goal. That's number 250. Wayne Rooney stands

:07:35.:07:41.

alone as Manchester United record goal-scorer.

:07:42.:07:44.

That's a really impressive record to achieve.

:07:45.:07:47.

Obviously a great moment for myself. A proud moment to get the record.

:07:48.:07:51.

Sir Bobby Charlton was there, as he always is. He came into the dressing

:07:52.:07:55.

room after the game and congratulated me. That meant a lot.

:07:56.:08:01.

I speak to him after any game but for him to be there to give him his

:08:02.:08:05.

congratulations. It was a special moment.

:08:06.:08:10.

What do your kids say? I have been speaking to them. They understand.

:08:11.:08:16.

They were made up. I have to re-enact it.

:08:17.:08:21.

So let's go back to when you arrived at this club. What were the aims for

:08:22.:08:28.

a young Wayne Rooney? I joined the club at 17. I say I wanted to win

:08:29.:08:33.

trophies. I've done it since being here. When

:08:34.:08:43.

I first joined the club, they had won four Premier Leagues. It is

:08:44.:08:47.

crazy. Now obviously identify won five. I'm

:08:48.:08:55.

sure the likes of Rashford will be looking at me, thinking they've won

:08:56.:08:59.

five Premier League titles but that's the aim. I'm sure if he keeps

:09:00.:09:05.

doing the right things and going the way he is, he will be a great player

:09:06.:09:11.

for this club. And hopefully in ten, whatever many years' time, he will

:09:12.:09:14.

be close to the record. Obviously, there have been many

:09:15.:09:17.

teams coming through, different management regimes in the last few

:09:18.:09:23.

years, has it invigorated you? It is part of football. Obviously

:09:24.:09:26.

Manchester United have had the stability of Sir Alex over the 26

:09:27.:09:30.

years before and over the last three to four years, what they've been

:09:31.:09:34.

doing is trying to find the right one, I believe they've found him.

:09:35.:09:41.

We're working every day. Seeing how he wants to work, setting the team

:09:42.:09:45.

up with the successes around the corner.

:09:46.:09:48.

You have said you would like to coach in the future, is it something

:09:49.:09:51.

you feel is a career path you would like to go down? Of course. When you

:09:52.:09:57.

get older you start to think more about the game, especially if you're

:09:58.:10:00.

not playing. You sit there and think, if I were the manager, what

:10:01.:10:06.

would I do? My whole life is around football. The minute I finish

:10:07.:10:11.

playing I would like to stay in the game and hopefully get the

:10:12.:10:14.

opportunity to manage. Players playing in this generation, they

:10:15.:10:18.

have the money to not go into management, so you really do have to

:10:19.:10:21.

want to do it. If you turned on the telly, you are

:10:22.:10:27.

watching Football Focus from Sincil Bank Stadium. And Lincoln take on

:10:28.:10:33.

Brighton later on. We are in the dug-out, with Dionne and Graham. You

:10:34.:10:39.

were at Manchester United, Dionne, did you ever think that the great

:10:40.:10:43.

work of Sir Bobby Charlton would be beaten by anybody? Never. But wane

:10:44.:10:49.

has done it. And you don't realise the pressure on you to perform all

:10:50.:10:54.

the time but from 16 years old, he has been in a bubble bubble of

:10:55.:10:59.

football. He has had to perform. He's been a superstar since the age

:11:00.:11:05.

of 19. To continue to score goals at the highest level by people trying

:11:06.:11:09.

to stop you scoring goals at every single game it is a huge game.

:11:10.:11:14.

It is every goal he scores seems different. He's not just a one trick

:11:15.:11:19.

pony. But he gets criticism, is he

:11:20.:11:24.

undervalued? I think that the problem is the baggage he picked up

:11:25.:11:29.

along the way. People think has he reached his potential. Some of the

:11:30.:11:35.

things that have come with him have maybe given the impression he is not

:11:36.:11:40.

as focussed as he should have been, he could have done better. But it's

:11:41.:11:46.

a remarkable achievement in terms of goals and the football he played

:11:47.:11:50.

from a young age. But also the spotlight off the pitch is huge as

:11:51.:11:53.

well. What about a future in management?

:11:54.:12:01.

He spoke about that with Gabby but he didn't seem like the right

:12:02.:12:05.

candidate but maybe we've misjudged him? A lot of players talking about

:12:06.:12:11.

being managers over the years, I never thought Paul Ince would be a

:12:12.:12:16.

manager, he is sparky but I think he has done well. But I think that

:12:17.:12:20.

Wayne has so much knowledge to pass on, I think it will be something he

:12:21.:12:25.

could knock into. And Rio Ferdinand says as he has

:12:26.:12:32.

played so much, he feels like he has a who-year-old body. Speak for

:12:33.:12:40.

yourself! I think that footballers are counting in dog years. On a

:12:41.:12:46.

serious note, he has not had, thankfully, a major injury, that

:12:47.:12:50.

keeps you in good shape. But it does get harder. His body has wear and

:12:51.:12:54.

tear. I think what Rio needs is the knocks

:12:55.:12:58.

and the pulls, and he has gotten through them.

:12:59.:13:05.

What about Wigan? They are struggling in the Premiership. What

:13:06.:13:10.

can Wigan do to upset Manchester United? If you sit back you will be

:13:11.:13:17.

beat. So they have to have a go. Warren Joyce will know Manchester

:13:18.:13:22.

United especially with the kids, Jess Lingard. But it is how to stop

:13:23.:13:30.

United. How to stop them? We are speaking with you more later on. And

:13:31.:13:36.

more of the guys sitting in this home team dugout later. A brilliant

:13:37.:13:43.

fact, did you know they have been keeping the grass in tip top shape

:13:44.:13:50.

by browing the cannabis lamps from the police force, all above board

:13:51.:13:53.

and legal. But everything is going their way.

:13:54.:13:59.

At 4.30am they were queuing up all this week to try to get hold of

:14:00.:14:03.

tickets against Brighton. We are making our way down. Good morning

:14:04.:14:07.

everybody. Thank you very much for a warm welcome. This is the away team

:14:08.:14:13.

getting ready, Brighton. Hiya, fellas. And we are later in the home

:14:14.:14:20.

dressing room with the man that scored that great goal, Nathan

:14:21.:14:24.

Arnold. Good morning Mr Cowley. Lovely to see you boys. Who are you

:14:25.:14:30.

watching analysis? Yes, the last bit of Brighton.

:14:31.:14:34.

What has this been like? We are talking about the guys queuing up

:14:35.:14:41.

for the tickets at 4.30am. The sense of anticipation, and excitement, it

:14:42.:14:45.

must be hard for you to keep it together at times, Nicky? It's been

:14:46.:14:50.

crazy. Going out for training, crowds queuing up around the stadium

:14:51.:14:55.

and it's been crazy for us. And from a boss perspective, Daniel?

:14:56.:15:03.

It's been magic. The magic of the FA Cup has certainly landed in Lincoln.

:15:04.:15:06.

The buzz around the place has been great. The journey we have been on

:15:07.:15:11.

has allowed us to connect with the city and the people.

:15:12.:15:14.

That's the thing, the people of Lincoln have bought into the fact

:15:15.:15:20.

you two are working hard, doing 20-hour days, the sense of

:15:21.:15:25.

community. It has been here for a long time, bringing pride in

:15:26.:15:29.

addition to the fact you are playing good football, playing at the top of

:15:30.:15:32.

the league in the FA Cup? We wanted to connect the people back with the

:15:33.:15:37.

Football Club. The club had been relegated five years ago and drifted

:15:38.:15:40.

since the relegation. When we arrived we felt it was still in

:15:41.:15:46.

mourning. We wanted to bring an enthusiasm and the work ethic and we

:15:47.:15:49.

have tried to do that. Our players have been great. We have honest,

:15:50.:15:55.

hard-working players. Since day dot they have bought into it everything

:15:56.:16:02.

we asked of them. For us there is a natural connection and chemistry

:16:03.:16:05.

between us and the supporters as I think we have similar traits.

:16:06.:16:10.

And the whole brothers perspective, is it awkward? Does it get easier

:16:11.:16:15.

with success? Do you fight amongst each other? No, not anymore! When we

:16:16.:16:22.

were kids, maybe. I mean argue? Is it easy to talk to someone who is

:16:23.:16:27.

your brother? You have moments. It is important that I'm a strong

:16:28.:16:31.

personality for Danny and don't always agree for the sake of it. We

:16:32.:16:35.

always give our own opinions. The greatest thing about our

:16:36.:16:39.

relationship is the trust. We have a togetherness and that's how we want

:16:40.:16:42.

the players to be. To be together and up for the challenge. We have a

:16:43.:16:46.

big one today. Can I asked what happened against

:16:47.:16:51.

Barrow? You lost against Barrow? Yeah.

:16:52.:16:55.

Is that as it is hard to maintain the focus? No excuses. We started

:16:56.:17:01.

well against Barrow. Conceded a poor goal. Barrow were excellent. I

:17:02.:17:06.

wouldn't want to do their performance a disservice by making

:17:07.:17:10.

excuses for ours. We try to be a no excuse mentality. We came up short

:17:11.:17:15.

when conceding away from home at difficult places like Barrow. You

:17:16.:17:19.

are giving yourself an uphill task. We didn't get to our levels. All of

:17:20.:17:26.

us have had prays recently. On Tuesday night we got the criticism

:17:27.:17:29.

we deserve. We have to shoulder it and to be big enough to learn from

:17:30.:17:34.

it and move forward. Are you enjoying the build-up of the

:17:35.:17:39.

game? We came here this morning, Danny is offering us a cup of tea, I

:17:40.:17:45.

thought you would have more important thing but you seem relaxed

:17:46.:17:47.

in this experience? When we started out, we would come

:17:48.:18:02.

in in the second qualifying round. You would have to do two qualifying

:18:03.:18:06.

matches to get to the qualifying rounds. You get four qualifying

:18:07.:18:10.

rounds the first round proper. So to be a game away from being in the

:18:11.:18:14.

last 16 of the FA is pretty amazing so we are going to enjoy it. Look at

:18:15.:18:22.

the smiles on their faces! Guys, I really appreciate you talking to us.

:18:23.:18:27.

Thank you very much. The Liverpool versus Wolves game is the early one

:18:28.:18:30.

in the FA Cup fourth round and let's get the team news from Martin

:18:31.:18:34.

Fisher. As expected, wholesale changes made

:18:35.:18:39.

by Jurgen Klopp. Only the goalkeeper and Roberto Firmino survived from

:18:40.:18:43.

Webster's defeat in the TfL cup semifinal against Southampton. --

:18:44.:18:52.

weapon state's. 21-year-old Connor Randall gets another chance to

:18:53.:18:58.

impress. Storage and Coutinho are among the subs if required. Wolves

:18:59.:19:00.

are without their regular keeper through suspension so 20-year-old

:19:01.:19:07.

Harry Burgoyne will make his third senior appearance. Andy Wyman, on

:19:08.:19:10.

loan from Derby, makes his first start it over 8000 Wolves fans are

:19:11.:19:19.

here to see if their team can make it three home defeats in a row for

:19:20.:19:23.

Liverpool. Managed to make it back pitch side!

:19:24.:19:28.

Genuinely sprinted into position! I'm slightly out of breath so you

:19:29.:19:32.

will have to talk. Nine changes for Liverpool. What do you think the

:19:33.:19:36.

slump in form is all about? I don't know if you listen to Radio 5 live

:19:37.:19:40.

this week but Juanfran said it was time for Jurgen Klopp to go. Does he

:19:41.:19:50.

take criticism? -- one fan said. It's difficult because they are a

:19:51.:19:53.

very exciting team and are built to attack and create it there was a lot

:19:54.:19:57.

of fluidity in the midfield so there is not a lot of backbone to the team

:19:58.:20:01.

in the way they're set up a they're not scoring goals at one end and

:20:02.:20:05.

keeping pressure on teams, there is always a bit of vulnerability at the

:20:06.:20:08.

back and that seems to me that they getting punished. They might be

:20:09.:20:12.

playing quite well but are getting punished and conceding goals. You

:20:13.:20:15.

can't read into nine changes too much, in terms of he's picking a

:20:16.:20:19.

team for this particular game and thinking about other matters as

:20:20.:20:23.

well. But ultimately, it is such fine margins and they're getting

:20:24.:20:25.

punished for things that maybe aren't as bad as we think. The new

:20:26.:20:31.

managers that have come in realising it is not a two horse race or three

:20:32.:20:35.

race. Lots of teams can win the league. Starting with the squeeze

:20:36.:20:40.

out his thinking, we can't do that all the time. He is changing the way

:20:41.:20:44.

he plays against certain teams. I still think he's the right man for

:20:45.:20:48.

the job. I like him, I think he's a very good manager. Sometimes I think

:20:49.:20:53.

other fans of other clubs think that because everybody likes him, he

:20:54.:20:57.

doesn't get criticised as much as some other managers would do but

:20:58.:21:02.

he's got to hold onto his best players. Coutinho has signed a

:21:03.:21:05.

contract but contracts don't mean much these days it up Lallana is a

:21:06.:21:10.

fantastic player for them and it is a talisman. You've got to have

:21:11.:21:13.

something to fall back on when those players aren't able to play about

:21:14.:21:16.

level. They can't do it 90 minutes every game. When they come to life,

:21:17.:21:21.

they perform at the highest levels and they do individual brilliance.

:21:22.:21:27.

Players like Coutinho and I still think Daniel Sturridge... Henderson

:21:28.:21:31.

has become a better player and Firmino is standing up to be

:21:32.:21:35.

counted. Players like that will attract other players. You can't

:21:36.:21:37.

bring in the great players if you don't have great players. 9000

:21:38.:21:41.

Wolves fans are going to be at Anfield. Doesn't surprise me. Paul

:21:42.:21:47.

Lambert said they're going to go for it and had nothing to lose. Could be

:21:48.:21:51.

a great afternoon. Given how Liverpool are playing at the moment,

:21:52.:21:54.

if they can absorb the pressure Liverpool will throw at them, and

:21:55.:21:58.

take advantage of chances, whether it is set pieces counterattack, they

:21:59.:22:02.

can go and win that game and they will fancy their chances. Paul

:22:03.:22:07.

Lambert knows how to win a he was the manager of another club and beat

:22:08.:22:14.

Norwich 6-0. He ended up being the Norwich manager later. He knows how

:22:15.:22:18.

to win an individual game. You dug into the memory banks there! I'll

:22:19.:22:25.

give eight-year-old Owen a shout! Let's show you the fact that you can

:22:26.:22:28.

see all those goals from Anfield on the BBC website. There will also be

:22:29.:22:34.

a programme from 2:30pm where Jason will be joined by Garth Brooks and

:22:35.:22:38.

Kevin Kilbane. Highlights of all today's games on Match of the Day at

:22:39.:22:44.

10:30pm. It is Gabby Logan with Trevor Sinclair and Danny Murphy.

:22:45.:22:50.

Mark Clemmitt has been out with the bus.

:22:51.:22:55.

We're on the trail of two of the clubs who are facing opposition from

:22:56.:23:01.

three divisions higher this week. And a little while, we'll meet one

:23:02.:23:05.

of lower league football's larger-than-life characters but

:23:06.:23:07.

first, having seen off neighbours Wimbledon in the last round in a

:23:08.:23:12.

leafy corner of South London, Sutton united are preparing for the visit

:23:13.:23:23.

of leads -- Leeds. Here we go. Morning, guys. Can you define the

:23:24.:23:29.

essence of this group of players? Why they've had the success they've

:23:30.:23:34.

had? We're tight-knit group. We had promotion last year and we kept

:23:35.:23:39.

together. We've gone on and pushed on and on really well. The club has

:23:40.:23:44.

made about half a million quid. To be frank with you, the least they

:23:45.:23:47.

could run two would be five litres of blue paint! Shall we have a look

:23:48.:23:54.

at the facilities? I'm not in any way denigrating these but a little

:23:55.:23:59.

bit tight, I would suggest. Nice use of the colour brown. Not sure quite

:24:00.:24:02.

what's going on here so I'm not going ask! It's funny what the cup

:24:03.:24:11.

shocks up with your Leeds United connections. It certainly does but

:24:12.:24:16.

plus, the history that Sutton have got with Leeds, which was 30 odd

:24:17.:24:23.

years ago... 47 years ago, 1970! All good ingredients. There you are!

:24:24.:24:33.

That's a goal. What a pity for Dave. I think six was not about score. I

:24:34.:24:44.

think we got off quite likely. 64 Leeds. Do you think this generation

:24:45.:24:51.

stand any chance this weekend? They stand a better chance than we did,

:24:52.:24:58.

I'm certain of that. He twists and turns on shoots and scores

:24:59.:25:01.

spectacularly. Has life changed hugely for you over the last eight

:25:02.:25:05.

weeks, since you started scoring these crucial goals? I could say

:25:06.:25:09.

yes. A lot of interviews, a lot of new friends showing up from back in

:25:10.:25:14.

the day. Can you imagine the atmosphere around here at four

:25:15.:25:19.

o'clock on Sunday afternoon, if you were to beat them? It would be

:25:20.:25:24.

amazing. It would surpass the feeling... It would be incredible.

:25:25.:25:29.

People are pinching themselves. We've seen managers in the Leeds

:25:30.:25:35.

United poster from 1970. I never dreamt that looking at that post of

:25:36.:25:38.

the last ten years since I've been here that one day that could happen

:25:39.:25:46.

to me and this club again. Meanwhile, Wycombe Wanderers are

:25:47.:25:49.

heading to Spurs and in the best traditions of the FA Cup, we've

:25:50.:25:53.

brought their biggest name to his favourite jerk chicken shop. There

:25:54.:26:02.

he is! Are you good? I'm good! I can see you are. Have you finished? I

:26:03.:26:06.

can't believe that! The funny thing is, people think agony loads and

:26:07.:26:09.

loads and loads but this hit the spot! Do you in anyway resent the

:26:10.:26:13.

fact that whenever anybody talks about you, it's always your physical

:26:14.:26:18.

Di mentioned before the football? Not any more. Used to be, "Look, I'm

:26:19.:26:23.

a footballer first and foremost," about my size but now it doesn't

:26:24.:26:26.

really bother me to it people said I was too big to play football but 14

:26:27.:26:33.

later, I'm still here. It has so do well, hasn't it? I would argue that

:26:34.:26:37.

you are probably the best-known player in the lower two divisions.

:26:38.:26:42.

Social media has played a massive part and I think it bridges the gap.

:26:43.:26:47.

It makes what is such a big world smaller. It makes anybody

:26:48.:26:53.

accessible. And Liverpool, we played Liverpool, Wimbledon, it took me on

:26:54.:26:58.

to a whole other plateau. What a great goal that is. Unleash the

:26:59.:27:02.

beast! One of my favourite moments of the season was the explosion of

:27:03.:27:06.

joy when you came out of perhaps to go to Tottenham. -- out of the hat.

:27:07.:27:15.

This is what I think the beauty of the FA Cup is. It's what the lower

:27:16.:27:19.

league teams dream of, a chance to pick yourself up against the elite

:27:20.:27:23.

and at the moment, Totten is probably one of the most inform

:27:24.:27:27.

teams around, especially in the Premier league. So, for us, I

:27:28.:27:30.

wouldn't say it is what dreams are made but this is what we play

:27:31.:27:34.

football for. For myself, I'm going to try enjoy every minute.

:27:35.:27:45.

One last thing. Somebody told me there was a little dance, a couple

:27:46.:27:51.

of moves. Can you give us a little demonstration? Trust me on Saturday,

:27:52.:27:59.

if I score or if we win, you will be seeing these moves on Saturday.

:28:00.:28:03.

That's worth watching the highlights programme! Just for that! Thank you.

:28:04.:28:11.

Thank you. We are back Lincoln Lounge. Good

:28:12.:28:14.

afternoon, everyone. Are you all right?

:28:15.:28:16.

CHEERING They are up for the cup! People do

:28:17.:28:24.

talk about the size and the fact he is the strongest player, which he is

:28:25.:28:28.

quite proud of, but have either of you had to mark somebody as

:28:29.:28:31.

formidable as that? I've had to mark a lot of people bigger than me, for

:28:32.:28:35.

obvious reasons! The thing you can't afford to do with somebody like that

:28:36.:28:38.

is you can't allow them to dominate so you've got to give your

:28:39.:28:42.

distances, use everything in your power, on the fringe of breaking the

:28:43.:28:45.

rules occasionally with your arms, just to make sure you protect

:28:46.:28:48.

yourself and don't let them dominate it up I'd pass him on! You can mark

:28:49.:28:56.

on corners! He's incredibly strong so don't try and mark him with

:28:57.:28:58.

strength because he will just take the Mickey out of you. That's what

:28:59.:29:04.

he can do. He's a big strong lad but he can still score goals, hold it

:29:05.:29:10.

up, and he's got talent. He is just a unit and I'd hate to mark him. I

:29:11.:29:14.

always found jumping into Google was the best form of defence. I can

:29:15.:29:19.

vouch for that! Needed that many times against meet drop whatever you

:29:20.:29:25.

do to get an advantage! From a certain perspective, quite a few

:29:26.:29:28.

teams playing away from home this weekend. Will talk about the other

:29:29.:29:32.

non-league sides. Playing on a three Gbits, what advantage does that give

:29:33.:29:36.

you, bearing in mind Sutton play and train on it most weeks? As good as

:29:37.:29:42.

they are, it doesn't play like a real grass pitch and you have to

:29:43.:29:45.

adapt the way you pass the ball, you can't go so long if you need to. The

:29:46.:29:49.

read of the ball and the bouncers different. Your positional play...

:29:50.:29:54.

When you are nowhere near the ball, your positional play has to be

:29:55.:29:57.

better because that ball is going to regional area very quickly so you've

:29:58.:30:01.

got to be aware of how much quicker it is playing on the surface. We

:30:02.:30:04.

heard from Roarie Deacon, who has scored a few goals and been

:30:05.:30:07.

impressing people and other goals are looking at him. Buddhism in the

:30:08.:30:11.

FA Cup do and you have a personal experience. -- that is something the

:30:12.:30:18.

FA Cup do. If you can get in the spotlight, and people can't ignore

:30:19.:30:22.

goals good performances. I was fortunate to score a couple of goals

:30:23.:30:25.

against Sheffield Wednesday for Cambridge United and I ended up

:30:26.:30:29.

getting move to Manchester United. That is a dream move that happens

:30:30.:30:33.

once every 50 years but if you can keep doing it, stay in the eye line,

:30:34.:30:37.

you never know who is watching. How soon after the game did someone give

:30:38.:30:43.

you a tingle on the phone? It was months, not years. They said, "We've

:30:44.:30:47.

seen you do that and would like to take you...? Sir Alex Obama seen me

:30:48.:30:52.

play live. He had a video tape and I think it was Betamax back then, of

:30:53.:30:57.

my goals. He said, I fancy a bit of this man, get him signed up. I knew

:30:58.:31:01.

I was in the wrong position! I nearly got sold down the leagues!

:31:02.:31:06.

Stop being down on yourself. The fourth round of the FA Cup kicked

:31:07.:31:09.

off last night with an East Midlands derby. Graham was commentating on

:31:10.:31:11.

this. Here we go. Akinfenwa All eyes on East Midlands

:31:12.:31:30.

at Pride Park tonight. In the end it's an awful own goal.

:31:31.:31:42.

Darren Bent can't believe it. Craig Bryson to give them the lead! Gray!

:31:43.:31:51.

Over Bent. Simpson can't deal with it. There's the header and there's

:31:52.:31:57.

the equaliser from Morgan. Leicester and Derby must do it all again.

:31:58.:32:04.

So, four goals last night. We have had an early goal at Anfield, Wolves

:32:05.:32:11.

are a goal up. We said it would be a day where Wolves would go for it.

:32:12.:32:16.

Well, this is it. Now they can invite Liverpool. I'm sure that the

:32:17.:32:19.

game plan is to try to stop the space behind them.

:32:20.:32:24.

So, searman getting the goal for Wolves. Something else to talk

:32:25.:32:28.

about, Arsene Wenger will be watching in the stands, a four-game

:32:29.:32:33.

ban. Do you think he got off lightly with this? Not having a stadium ban?

:32:34.:32:39.

I think it's about right. I think they have it right. I have been

:32:40.:32:44.

speaking to Graeme about this. He has been giving insight into what

:32:45.:32:48.

could have happened. Because he admitted he had done something

:32:49.:32:52.

wrong, the FA see it favourably. That may have gone a way to reducing

:32:53.:32:57.

the ban, the same with the fine. I think there could be a question mark

:32:58.:33:01.

about whether or not a couple of games should have been stadium

:33:02.:33:05.

banned. The full ban. Obviously you have to make sure as an organisation

:33:06.:33:11.

that players and managers know you cannot man handle officials.

:33:12.:33:15.

Does it affect the players? Some will be delighted that the manager

:33:16.:33:19.

is not on the touch line. They will! Some players like to get on with it.

:33:20.:33:24.

Some time they feel that the manager is in your ear. It will benefit

:33:25.:33:30.

some, hinder others. The other thing is he does not have history. He has

:33:31.:33:35.

not been in front of FA for several years. So that is taken into

:33:36.:33:38.

context. I think it is right.

:33:39.:33:44.

He Haas had a few. Bits and bobs. Well, we are live from Lincoln. If

:33:45.:33:48.

you switched on, this is Football Focus, we are here until 1.00pm. We

:33:49.:34:00.

still have this on the way for you. Jamie Raven is weaving his Cup

:34:01.:34:08.

magic. And the Millwall manager, Neil Harris as his side eye up

:34:09.:34:11.

another big boy. We also have Hull taking on Fulham

:34:12.:34:17.

this week. Apologies with the break up in the sound, Ryan Mason, we saw

:34:18.:34:23.

last week, a horrible injury, within an hour, into hospital having an

:34:24.:34:27.

operation, the players are visiting him this weekend at St Mary's

:34:28.:34:31.

Hospital. It shows you how much medical care has come on in the last

:34:32.:34:37.

few years? And rightly so. Anything can happen quickly on a football

:34:38.:34:41.

field or in any sport. The way that they dealt with Ryan Mason was

:34:42.:34:46.

outstanding. They were all there. I forget the doctor's name he was at

:34:47.:34:50.

Liverpool for many years but he took charge. He said don't do that. He

:34:51.:34:55.

was instructing everything. To get on there, to get it sorted. To know

:34:56.:35:01.

exactly. Sometimes doctors know from a player's body language how bad the

:35:02.:35:04.

incident is. You famously broke your neck at

:35:05.:35:10.

Aston Villa and then went back on and played again. Would it be

:35:11.:35:13.

different these days in the care that was taken? Probably a one-off

:35:14.:35:19.

incident on my behalf. I crushed C 5. I was off the pitch. The

:35:20.:35:25.

shoulders by the ears, I said I was fine, I went on the pitch for a

:35:26.:35:31.

minute and then the physio knew. The game has taken big strides on

:35:32.:35:34.

getting professional people on the heart of the incidents and dealing

:35:35.:35:37.

with these situations far better. It is the first person on the pitch

:35:38.:35:41.

that is key. So that support that the players have now is fantastic.

:35:42.:35:47.

Proof is obviously with Ryan Mason's situation, how quickly they dealt

:35:48.:35:49.

with it. With the players if they stay down,

:35:50.:35:54.

if a player stays down and doesn't move, there is something wrong.

:35:55.:35:58.

We do wish Ryan Mason all the best and hope he makes a full recovery.

:35:59.:36:05.

And on the pitch for Hull, Robert Snodgrass, liver liver liver has

:36:06.:36:09.

gone as well, they seem to be preparing for going the wrong way

:36:10.:36:16.

down? It is a concern. The players see the other players being sold,

:36:17.:36:25.

the morale is a key issue -- Livermore.

:36:26.:36:27.

The atmosphere in the dressing room will be important.

:36:28.:36:36.

The play the players thinking what can they achieve without Snodgrass

:36:37.:36:41.

and Livermore, they are bottom of the table nothing is going right,

:36:42.:36:45.

they will be worried. Let's hear from Josh McEachran, his

:36:46.:36:50.

side take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. He has been around the

:36:51.:36:55.

block. 18 months ago he turned up at Brentford. Juliette Ferrington went

:36:56.:37:02.

to see him. Josh McEachran is coming on, an indication of how highly

:37:03.:37:06.

rated he is by Carlo Ancelotti. I started at Chelsea. Signed a

:37:07.:37:11.

professional contract and made the diboo at Chelsea at 17. . I got

:37:12.:37:20.

along with AB V well. He said I could stay but he was not sure of

:37:21.:37:25.

the game time. I went to Swansea, since then it has been up an down.

:37:26.:37:32.

You come back off loan, then packing another case and shooting off again.

:37:33.:37:37.

How difficult was it? Of course it is unsettling, but about I didn't

:37:38.:37:41.

expect to walk into the Chelsea first team. You have to earn your

:37:42.:37:47.

place. At that time, for whatever reason, the manager didn't think I

:37:48.:37:51.

had heroined my place. It was unsettling. Up and down the

:37:52.:37:55.

motorway, living out of the back of a car. That is part and parcel of

:37:56.:38:00.

being a professional footballer at such a big club. Chelsea, Manchester

:38:01.:38:04.

United, they are all the same. Is it hard to understand,

:38:05.:38:09.

frustrating that so few young English players come through the

:38:10.:38:13.

ranks at such big clubs? It is frustrating but if you are good

:38:14.:38:17.

enough, if the manager believes in you, you will get a chance. Chelsea

:38:18.:38:24.

are getting better at it with the likes of Loftus-Cheek.

:38:25.:38:31.

When you realised that your time had ended at Chelsea, how difficult was

:38:32.:38:34.

it for you to divorce yourself from the situation? Towards the end, when

:38:35.:38:42.

I was at Vitesse Arnhem, I still had a year to the end of the contract

:38:43.:38:45.

but I couldn't see myself breaking it. So I took it upon myself to

:38:46.:38:52.

start a new chapter at Brentford, to get settled and playing back week

:38:53.:38:56.

in, week out. Bradford City, 2-0 down away at

:38:57.:39:00.

Chelsea. They are back to win it 4-2.

:39:01.:39:05.

Does Bradford give you hope from a couple of seasons ago when they went

:39:06.:39:09.

to the Bridge and came back with success? Yes. You never know what is

:39:10.:39:15.

going to happen. I know it will be tough. I'm looking forward to it.

:39:16.:39:20.

The Chelsea fans are excited to see me back there playing.

:39:21.:39:25.

What connection do you have with the Chelsea fans, even though the game

:39:26.:39:29.

time at the Bridge was limited? I think that they are desperate to see

:39:30.:39:34.

a young English lad coming through. The last one was John Terry. They

:39:35.:39:40.

think, I think that is why they took so kindly to me. I'm still 23. I

:39:41.:39:45.

want to be playing in the Premier League. Back playing at the top

:39:46.:39:49.

levels. I still have to work hard, improve as a player. Hopefully, I

:39:50.:39:56.

still think that I can get there. A lot was expected from him from an

:39:57.:40:01.

early age. At Chelsea from the age of eight. Do you think he could be

:40:02.:40:04.

right. That the club could have helped him more? I think it is the

:40:05.:40:09.

down side of the loan stem. He burst into the team. Everybody pinned

:40:10.:40:13.

hopes on him as he was home-grown. As he said, Chelsea were looking for

:40:14.:40:18.

somebody to compare with JT. There was a lot of criticism to the club

:40:19.:40:22.

about not developing home-grown players. From that point of view,

:40:23.:40:27.

once you are farmed out, going on loan, learning the profession it is

:40:28.:40:33.

not a bad thing, I agree with season but four, five seasons you never

:40:34.:40:36.

establish a style of play that suits you and finding it hard to get the

:40:37.:40:41.

best out yourself as a player. So I think he as a result of that has

:40:42.:40:46.

found himself struggling a bit as he has huge potential. He has played at

:40:47.:40:51.

England level all the way up. U16 captain for England. Up to 221s. He

:40:52.:40:57.

has an opportunity to show his quality, play on a big stage and say

:40:58.:41:03.

to everyone: Look, this is what I'm capable of. Maybe this is a

:41:04.:41:08.

springboard. He is still only 21. It is young.

:41:09.:41:13.

And Chelsea, they are so formidable, especially at home.

:41:14.:41:16.

They are wiping the floor with everybody. So many good players.

:41:17.:41:20.

They seem to have a balance. They know exactly what the manager wants,

:41:21.:41:25.

how to perform to stay where they are, the top of the tree they've

:41:26.:41:28.

been great to watch. They will know what it is all about. To know what

:41:29.:41:34.

to expect. He will see a few old face but it will go out of the

:41:35.:41:39.

window when the game starts. Liverpool on Tuesday, Arsenal the

:41:40.:41:44.

following weekend, it could be a decisive week in the title race?

:41:45.:41:51.

Yes. Chelsea have the system, the 3-4-3. Every player knows his role.

:41:52.:41:55.

Strong defensively, they are creating chances. So the balance,

:41:56.:42:00.

that put them as my favourites. Well, we have put a lot into the

:42:01.:42:04.

programme this week, even a magician, here we go, here is Jamie

:42:05.:42:07.

Raven. The players know what it is like to

:42:08.:42:12.

play a giant at the FA Cup. I'm here today to show them it is like

:42:13.:42:17.

performing a magic trick. All you need is confidence... Composure...

:42:18.:42:24.

And perfect timing. What a night! What I love the most

:42:25.:42:28.

about football, and I'm a huge fan is this: You are never on your own.

:42:29.:42:34.

I do most of what I do on my own. I never have someone looking out for

:42:35.:42:37.

me. Every now and then I can do a trick with a helper. This is my

:42:38.:42:42.

assistant. He is doing the trick. It is important that he does not see or

:42:43.:42:47.

hear anything. Put your hand on top of that. A massive game against

:42:48.:42:53.

Brighton. Think two things: What is the score and who will score the

:42:54.:42:58.

first goal? Amy, help me out. We need a card to write the information

:42:59.:43:01.

down on. Say stop anywhere. Stop.

:43:02.:43:04.

Brilliant, do you have a score in your head. Write down the first

:43:05.:43:09.

score and scorer. Now we lose the cards. I will not do anything. You

:43:10.:43:14.

are happy he cannot see the card. Take out the stick man. I need you

:43:15.:43:18.

to roll him up into a football. Place the cards in the pack. When

:43:19.:43:22.

you are done hold him nice and tight. Check out that bad boy! We

:43:23.:43:28.

are putting our magician, our assistant inside the little canon.

:43:29.:43:34.

Can I brow him for a second? We are stuffing him inside the canon. Then

:43:35.:43:38.

I'm hoping he's going to find our card. We will need encouragement,

:43:39.:43:49.

guys, he is a bit shy. Can I have an "oh... "? Stop. That is rubbish. Do

:43:50.:43:58.

it again. Our little stick man as burnt himself through the card. You

:43:59.:44:03.

can see clearly there is a stick-man shaped hole through all of the

:44:04.:44:07.

cards. Until we get down to one... Dude, what was the score you thought

:44:08.:44:13.

it would be? 1-0. Who did you say that the first

:44:14.:44:18.

scorer would be? Nathan. There is one card with a stake man

:44:19.:44:22.

on it. All of the rest. Absolutely nothing. Show the camera.

:44:23.:44:30.

Can I have a round of applause! I need some explanation of that trick.

:44:31.:44:34.

I have to watch it again. It is baffling me! Here we are in the

:44:35.:44:43.

Lincoln dressing room with Matt Reid taking on the Brighton might. Is it

:44:44.:44:49.

is day when you feel nervy, or the fact you have taken on Ipswich and

:44:50.:44:55.

beaten a championship side. Does it make you feel comfortable? Yeah,

:44:56.:44:59.

definitely but we are playing against a very good team. We have to

:45:00.:45:04.

match and do better than before. I'm sure that the managers say take

:45:05.:45:09.

it as it comes but it is not a normal game, nor a normal build-up.

:45:10.:45:16.

The fans have been outside from 4. .35am, there is a huge expectation

:45:17.:45:22.

on you and the team? Yeah, definitely, the underdog is a title

:45:23.:45:25.

to embrace. Hopefully we'll get a result.

:45:26.:45:30.

Do you or has the manager approached the game the same as the Ipswich

:45:31.:45:34.

game or changed it because it is Brighton? We have done the stuff we

:45:35.:45:39.

have to do about Brighton. Watched the videos on them. That has not

:45:40.:45:45.

been different for us, that is good. It's a tough ask but we'll give it

:45:46.:45:49.

our best shot. The style of football you play, what are you looking for

:45:50.:45:54.

from your team-mates? Who will give you the opportunity? The wingers.

:45:55.:45:58.

The set pieces are a massive opportunity for us. We have scored a

:45:59.:46:03.

few from the set pieces. But from the goals in the teams we are one of

:46:04.:46:08.

the top scorers in the league. Just cross it for him! What has the

:46:09.:46:15.

influence of the Cowley brothers been? I know they are detailed. They

:46:16.:46:21.

have spent a long time preparing you with video analysis. What difference

:46:22.:46:25.

have they made to the club? There was a time you were thinking of

:46:26.:46:28.

leaving? Definitely. I spoke to them from day one. They've been

:46:29.:46:33.

unbelievable. They want to do well. This give every opportunity they can

:46:34.:46:38.

to be successful. That is great. We have a good opportunity this year.

:46:39.:46:43.

They won't leave a stone unturned to bring success to the team.

:46:44.:46:50.

I know quite a few of your playing partners are watching and probably

:46:51.:46:55.

waiting for you to make a slip-up but do you think the players have a

:46:56.:46:59.

belief that today could be one of those days? Is there some

:47:00.:47:02.

confidence, inner feeling, that you can do it? There are signs all over

:47:03.:47:07.

the dressing room on the club. You a player who at those things? Not

:47:08.:47:14.

really. Phase of his big belief in the previous game and as it stands,

:47:15.:47:18.

we got nothing to fear today. We're playing against a championship team

:47:19.:47:25.

and we will have a bit more opportunity. On BBC Radio

:47:26.:47:28.

Lincolnshire at the end of the game, the commentator said, "If there is a

:47:29.:47:31.

baby being born in Lincoln tonight, they need to be called after Nathan

:47:32.:47:37.

Arnold who scored the goal". There was a baby that night but they

:47:38.:47:40.

didn't name in Nathan, they called it Bradley! I didn't know that the

:47:41.:47:48.

wave of his forgot the name wrong. Obviously, Bradley had a good game.

:47:49.:47:52.

Have a good game. Enjoy the experience and we will see what

:47:53.:47:55.

happens come 5pm. After splashing Bournemouth in league

:47:56.:48:10.

three, -- Millwall face more Premier league opposition in the shape of

:48:11.:48:17.

Watford. Ivan Gaskell has been to see Millwall's record goal-scorer

:48:18.:48:20.

turned manager Neil Harris. What does it mean to me? Ambition. What

:48:21.:48:27.

does the FA Cup mean to me? Dreams, Wembley. When I think of Millwall

:48:28.:48:33.

and the FA Cup, my mind drifts back to 2004 and the Millennium Stadium.

:48:34.:48:38.

It was my dream to play in the cup final. It means everything to me

:48:39.:48:43.

having achieved that and I've been able to pass it onto my players and

:48:44.:48:46.

I say to my players before each round, it may be the first round, it

:48:47.:48:51.

may be the third round, Division 1, Division 2, Conference team... To

:48:52.:48:55.

get to the fifth round of the cup is a phenomenal achievement and for a

:48:56.:48:59.

championship club to get to a final is awesome. It was in the FA Cup

:49:00.:49:05.

where you broke the club's all-time scoring record it up it was a

:49:06.:49:10.

special achievement. To surpass someone of his stature was huge.

:49:11.:49:16.

Something I had been chasing for a period of time, the individual

:49:17.:49:21.

achievement, being the record goal-scorer at a club, is huge.

:49:22.:49:27.

Stevie Morrison started talking about chasing my record. There was a

:49:28.:49:35.

simple answer, just don't pick him. I think if he got to 120, I might

:49:36.:49:41.

have to start leaving him out! The quarterfinal draw away... Thank you

:49:42.:49:49.

very much. So you go from player to manager. What are the challenges of

:49:50.:49:54.

making the transition? For instance, you've got several players who are

:49:55.:49:57.

now managing who you used to play alongside. How is that? Fortunately,

:49:58.:50:03.

we are talking about really good pros. Really good senior players.

:50:04.:50:08.

Good friends of mine when I played, top professionals, so it makes the

:50:09.:50:10.

relationship and managing them very easy. It is not a problem to manage

:50:11.:50:19.

because they are good players. I do recall being really shocked one day

:50:20.:50:22.

when I woke up and read that you were suffering from cancer.

:50:23.:50:27.

Fortunately, I was young and naive. I was 23 when I was diagnosed and

:50:28.:50:33.

maybe a lack of knowledge helped me at the time. The downside was that I

:50:34.:50:36.

was young in my career and playing really well and sitting back and

:50:37.:50:41.

looking now, you can be as honest as you like now you've retired,

:50:42.:50:45.

probably not quite hitting the levels I did precancer. But I dealt

:50:46.:50:51.

with it like everything else. You tackle it head on. There were so

:50:52.:50:57.

many good times afterwards. Back in the training pitch, the training

:50:58.:51:02.

ground... Scoring your first goal... Things like that are real

:51:03.:51:07.

highlights. Funnily enough, that first goal when you came back was

:51:08.:51:14.

against Watford. Yeah. Bizarre, probably that it just happened to be

:51:15.:51:18.

Watford. That was a big moment at the time. 2002 was a big moment. It

:51:19.:51:29.

completely separate from Sunday's game. It is a tough game for us.

:51:30.:51:40.

Hopefully we can get a result of the weekend. We have moved outside to

:51:41.:51:46.

the directors' box. Neil Harris is a Manu played with and know very well

:51:47.:51:50.

and the good news this week the Millwall is that the future of the

:51:51.:51:53.

ground is secure. When you played with Neil, did you feel he had that

:51:54.:51:59.

management touch? He was a nuisance! He was a centre forward that was a

:52:00.:52:02.

nuisance, had to win everything, always wanted to be on the winning

:52:03.:52:07.

side. Had to quit plaintively scored. So we have that mentality.

:52:08.:52:13.

-- had to keep playing until he scored. He always had that

:52:14.:52:20.

managerial, what's the word, streak in him. If you are doing it in

:52:21.:52:24.

training, when it comes to games later on in life... It's a skill

:52:25.:52:28.

set, it is what you can take from your football career and apply it to

:52:29.:52:31.

your management career, so the experiences he's had, his natural

:52:32.:52:34.

personality and putting that together. You are right about the

:52:35.:52:38.

ground, that is a massive bit of news. It is not over in the sense

:52:39.:52:42.

that they have withdrawn the application but it gives them a

:52:43.:52:45.

reprieve and it shows the spirit of the supporters and everybody to get

:52:46.:52:52.

behind that. It could be a tricky afternoon for Watford. Another

:52:53.:52:55.

Premier league side who may be in for not the best weekend.

:52:56.:52:58.

Psychologically, when I played FA Cup games, I was playing for a

:52:59.:53:03.

Premier league club at the time, it was hard to motivate yourself

:53:04.:53:06.

sometimes because everything about the game itself is set up for you to

:53:07.:53:11.

fail as the favourite, even down to the referee. Tackle comes in and

:53:12.:53:17.

he's more likely to give the opponent from the lower division the

:53:18.:53:19.

benefit of the doubt of everything up settles -- unsettles you. You

:53:20.:53:26.

have to be spot on as an individual and as a team. Are you able to share

:53:27.:53:30.

any memories of your time at Millwall? On live television, no!

:53:31.:53:38.

Not a single-storey? There are lots of times in the dressing rooms when

:53:39.:53:43.

it has got physical. They wanted to... Sean Dyche was in the dressing

:53:44.:53:48.

room and Tim Cahill and Paul Ifield, we had some really good players and

:53:49.:53:55.

then you had little cop Chopper in your ear because he wanted to win

:53:56.:54:00.

all the time. He knows what the fans demand and he's just trying to give

:54:01.:54:04.

them it. You can see Millwall taking on Watford on BBC One tomorrow at

:54:05.:54:12.

11:50am. That is followed by Manchester United versus Wigan.

:54:13.:54:17.

Highlights of all of Sunday's games on much of the day and the fifth

:54:18.:54:21.

round draw will be live on The One Show from 7p on Monday night. To

:54:22.:54:26.

give you an idea of the geography, this is the wonderful Lincoln

:54:27.:54:29.

Cathedral. You get pretty clear view of it from the directors' box, which

:54:30.:54:34.

is where the man who has joined us will be sitting this afternoon, Paul

:54:35.:54:38.

Barber, the chief executive from Brighton. We've talked a lot about

:54:39.:54:41.

Lincoln understandably but from a bite in perspective, top of the

:54:42.:54:44.

championship. Is this the thought of game you don't want? Not really at

:54:45.:54:48.

this stage but Lincoln have been going really well, having a great

:54:49.:54:51.

season, and we are enjoying a great season and it should be a cup tie.

:54:52.:54:56.

Are their concerns from a player's point of view? Chris Hughton were

:54:57.:55:00.

saying there may be some changes made but at this stage of the

:55:01.:55:03.

season, it is about giving that momentum going? We don't want to

:55:04.:55:08.

lose any games. We also want to give our squad and opportunity to play. A

:55:09.:55:12.

few lads haven't had as much football as they would have liked so

:55:13.:55:16.

they will see some football today. Keeping the momentum going, the

:55:17.:55:19.

confidence up, looking forward to another big game on Thursday at

:55:20.:55:22.

Huddersfield and get through this one and we've got a fifth round to

:55:23.:55:26.

look forward to so we'll see to it getting through is a good way of

:55:27.:55:35.

putting it. We were talking about Knockaert a few weeks ago and you

:55:36.:55:39.

are all set out. You are a Premier league side playing the championship

:55:40.:55:42.

and your fans feel this could be the season. I was just talking about

:55:43.:55:49.

this with some guys and we don't get anything for being first in January.

:55:50.:55:53.

We have tried to instil this in the club and we know we have still got a

:55:54.:55:56.

lot of work to do in the second half of the season. There are a lot of

:55:57.:56:00.

good teams in the second of the championship. We want to get there

:56:01.:56:04.

but there no guarantees. You got that setup, structure and the

:56:05.:56:07.

manager behind the team. Do you feel you need anything else to click on?

:56:08.:56:11.

I think we just want to try and keep everyone fit, try and avoid

:56:12.:56:16.

suspensions, red cards and bookings. And in the championship, you need a

:56:17.:56:20.

bit of luck and I think last year we lacked a bit of luck at key times.

:56:21.:56:25.

But we want to try and you going. We are a humble club but we've got very

:56:26.:56:28.

modest beginnings and we've been through a lot over the years so if

:56:29.:56:32.

we were able to it, it would be good. How have you got to where you

:56:33.:56:37.

are today? I played up the old stadium and I look brighter now and

:56:38.:56:42.

you've come 1 million miles. So professional, the stadium is

:56:43.:56:44.

amazing, the team are doing so well. I think you've got a fantastic

:56:45.:56:48.

manager. How have you achieved in such a short space of time? We are

:56:49.:56:52.

lucky, our chairman has invested a huge amount of money in the club, in

:56:53.:56:58.

infrastructure, the stadium, the training ground. He's also got out

:56:59.:57:01.

of his way to hire the best possible people at all levels and Chris

:57:02.:57:03.

Hughton has done a fabulous job since he came into the football club

:57:04.:57:07.

and we're very lucky to have him. We wish you all the best. Thanks for

:57:08.:57:14.

talking to us. It is currently Liverpool 0-1 Wolves at Anfield. You

:57:15.:57:18.

can follow the game across the BBC. This is how warm welcome we've had

:57:19.:57:22.

from Lincoln. After the game, we've been invited to someone's house for

:57:23.:57:28.

pie and chips. I will see you there! A warning, Dion Dublin has got a big

:57:29.:57:34.

appetite! Predictions on the BBC website from Radio 1's Adele Roberts

:57:35.:57:42.

in 15 minutes. Owen said hello so he is going to say goodbye. So straight

:57:50.:57:53.

down that camera. Over to you, I went from Lincoln. Just a peer. So,

:57:54.:58:01.

over to you! What is coming up later? I mentioned it to you

:58:02.:58:08.

earlier. Oh, the magic of the cup! There you go. We will leave you with

:58:09.:58:13.

something you loosened up for a brilliant weekend. Owen, you are a

:58:14.:58:17.

star. See you all again! Bye-bye for now.

:58:18.:58:26.

That is an absolute present. What a fantastic track from Aaron Ramsey.

:58:27.:58:51.
