As we reach the final qualifying round of the FA Cup, Tim Fuell embraces the stats and facts surrounding the 32 ties with @FACupFactfile Phil Annets and talks to two managers hoping to lead their sides to cupsets. Marske United boss Carl Jarrett has led his side already into 5 wins from 5 in this season's FA Cup, with 5 clean sheets and scoring 20 goals. With the visit of Gateshead from two levels above a sell-out he believes his club from a "small fishing port" are more than capable of going further in this competition and moving further up the pyramid. Moving further is something Chertsey Town boss Kevin Maclaren has done in recent months. His weekly commute from Blackburn down to the outskirts of London to try to balance a young family with work and football certainly suggests he'd be comfortable with another National cup run. As a player under Dave Anderson he covered the country on the way to winning the FA Vase. As his replacement as manager he's continued that success, unbeaten this season in the league and heading to Southend this week in the FA Cup looking for a cupset. Rounding off the show looking at the National League, FA Cup and managerial changes at Southend, Leatherhead, Stourbridge and Billericay and previewing this weekend's paper is Senior Writer of The Non League Paper David Richardson.

Kettering Town boss Paul Cox, took Mansfield all the way to the Third Round against Liverpool and they are memories he will always treasure, and memories he hopes can inspire the next generation of Poppies to take them into the Fourth Qualifying Round. The club are already the second highest scorers in the history of the FA Cup, but can they progress further? Also hoping to progress further is Craig Edwards. He's had success in the competition with other clubs before to but is yet to do so with his current club Cheshunt. In a week that their eight year push for planning for a site development, he hopes the winning ways can be reflected on the field too, but not before he's made his point on the fuel crisis fiasco this week.

The Chelsea FanCast looks back, season by season, to 50 Years of Chelsea history from 1970 to the present day.Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Mark Meehan and Dayne Whittle to look back at the 1997-98 season.The 1997-98 season was described by Chelsea Historian Rick Glanvill as “turbulently successful” and it is hard to disagree and in Part Two we review from January to the end of the season.In January 1998, Chelsea were 3rd in the league having at one stage reached 2nd and still in the Coca-Cola Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup with everything very much still to play for in the second half of the season.Tradition dictates that the first match in the New Year was the FA Cup 3rd round and Chelsea, the FA Cup holders were pitted against Manchester United, our recent Cup nemesis. None of us, however, could have predicted the insanity that ensued that day. 0:3 down at half time; 0:5 on 74 minutes and then a Graeme Le Saux worldy and two goals by Vialli made it 3:5 with only a few minutes to go and gave us hope. Well actually they didn't really!In the next match Chelsea made amends by knocking out Ipswich in the Coca-Cola cup, again after extra time and penalties, resulting in a semi-final tie against Arsenal. Due to the peculiarity of the fixture list this meant Chelsea would play Arsenal at Highbury in the Coca-Cola Cup, followed by another visit to Highbury in the league and then the return Coca-Cola Cup at the Bridge.Chelsea's record against Arsenal at the time was very poor, so many supporters were hoping for the best but expecting the worst. A 2-1 defeat in the 1st leg thanks to a Mark Hughes goal kept us in the tie. But no one expected what would happen after the 2:0 league defeat. Ruud Gullit was sacked after failing to agree a new contract and Gianluca Vialli was announced as his replacement; his first match in charge being the Coca-Cola Cup semi-final at home to Arsenal.Having toasted his appointment with his teammates with a glass of champagne before kick-off, Chelsea put in a superb performance beating Arsenal 3-1 to reach another final at Wembley. They duly dispatched Middlesbrough in the final, again after extra time, to lift their second trophy in two seasons.Before the Coca-Cola Cup final, Chelsea had seen off Real Betis in the European Cup Winners' Cup final, thanks to Flo's two goals in the away leg. All eyes were now focussed on European glory and as a result the league form suffered.Against Vicenza in the first leg Chelsea lost 1:0, not a bad away result in Europe, so hopes were high for the second leg back at the Bridge. Hope made way to despair when Vicenza went 2:0 up on aggregate, but Chelsea stormed back, cheered on by one of the noisiest crowds ever experienced at the Bridge. Poyet and Zola put us on level terms with Vicenza and Mark Hughes sealed it with a stunning header to pass to himself to score on the volley.The season would now end with the chance to win the European Cup Winners' Cup for the second time in the club's history. Stockholm would be the venue, Stuttgart the opponents and with Chelsea supporters in all four sides of the tiny stadium, Gianfranco Zola came on with 19 minutes to go and scored a sublime goal with his second touch to win Chelsea the trophy. 1997-98 was a remarkable season with great players like Vialli, Hughes and Zola scoring some wonderful goals; two trophies in one season for the first time ever and the shock sacking of Ruud Gullit. No wonder it is one of the most memorable Chelsea seasons of all time.To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.

Host Ricky Sacks was joined by guests Rob White, Leon Emirali and James Dickens on this edition of the Last Word On Spurs panel to review Tottenham Hotspur's home game against Watford. Tottenham go into the international break top of the Premier League after Heung-min Son's goal handed them a 1-0 home win over Watford. There were early chances for both sides, but the game was in threat of becoming deadlocked before Son came to the rescue on his 200th Premier League appearance, curling in a wicked free-kick cross that bamboozled the Watford defence and goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann (42), finding the far corner. But Spurs were never completely comfortable as both Juraj Kucka and Ismaila Sarr missed opportunities for Watford, though Dele Alli swept a fine chance wide at the other end in the second half and Harry Kane missed two late openings on his first Premier League appearance of the season. It was a third straight 1-0 win for Nuno Espirito Santo's side as they upheld their 100 per cent Premier League record - though the Spurs boss said after the game "nothing is perfect, we're still trying to improve" - while newly-promoted Watford sit 12th with three points. #TOTTENHAM #HOTSPUR #TOTTENHAMHOTSPUR #SPURS #COYS #EPL #UECL #EuropaConferenceLeague #CarabaoCup #FACup #손흥민 #HeungMinSon #HarryKane #TOTWAT

Host Ricky Sacks was joined by Jason McGovern, Jake Lambert and Matt Hayes on this edition of the Last Word On Spurs. Harry Kane scored twice on his first start of the season as Spurs advanced to the Europa Conference League group stage with a 3-1 aggregate win over Pacos de Ferreira. Kane started and captained Spurs after a long-running transfer saga that put his future at the club in doubt this summer, but that will all be forgotten now after his first-half double ensured European football for Spurs this season. The England captain's opened the scoring after just nine minutes with a well-taken strike, before doubling the home team's lead with another composed finish 11 before half-time - the striker's 39th and 40th European goals for the club, more than any other Spurs player. Vitorino Antunes' 70th-minute own goal wrapped up the victory as Nuno Espirito Santo's side overturned their 1-0 first-leg deficit to take their place in Friday morning's draw for the group stage of the Europa Conference League. #TOTTENHAM #HOTSPUR #TOTTENHAMHOTSPUR #SPURS #COYS #EPL #UECL #EuropaConferenceLeague #CarabaoCup #FACup #손흥민 #HeungMinSon #HarryKane #TOTFCPF

As a small child, Paul Furlong would play make-believe endlessly with his younger brother, Daniel. His parents had moved out of a rough part of the city to somewhere where they felt that they could give him more opportunities, but in doing so had stretched themselves financially to the point where his Mum was working five jobs and his Dad was working two. Because all the wages were spent on barely surviving, he and his brother had no toys to play with and would therefore makeup stories and then act them out for hours on end. As finances eased slightly, Paul's parents introduced him to cinema and that childhood love of storytelling grew, so that now, as a “grown-up”, Paul tells stories in the form of films; television programmes for BBC, ITV & Channel4; and for his company, Opus Media's, corporate clients through TV advertising, online video and photography. These clients include Subway, Formula One, The National Lottery, NHS and The National Grid, to name but a few. Paul is a global authority on corporate storytelling having combined his storytelling knowledge and experience from the film and TV industry with his sales and marketing expertise and know-how from his corporate work. He is the author of Rule the World: Master the power of storytelling to inspire, influence and succeed and gives public and corporate seminars and conducts live and virtual training programs on storytelling around the world and has shared his insights on numerous podcasts and various publications including Entrepreneur. Paul is an RTS award-winning producer, is a member of PACT, the RTS and is a founding member and sits on the board of the Producer's Collective. In Paul's spare time, you'll see him running around the wilds of the beach, chasing after his two daughters; trying to remain philosophical about Everton's season finishing after the third round of the FA Cup every year and watching foreign movies at the cinema with his wife, Amy.

Host Ricky Sacks was joined by Co-Host Lee McQueen and returning guests to the Last Word On Spurs in Talia Coren and Harry Brooks to this edition of the Last Word On Spurs. Harry Kane returned to Tottenham action as Dele Alli's early penalty saw them edge past Wolves 1-0, with the hosts once again suffering from a lack of final product. All eyes were on the teamsheet at 1pm, where Nuno Espirito Santo had named Kane on the bench for the first time since his delayed return to Spurs after Euro 2020. The striker's future remains very much undecided with nine days left of the summer transfer window, but came on as a 72nd-minute substitute. The away fans sang 'Harry Kane, he's one of our own' as he replaced Heung-Min Son. Alli's ninth-minute penalty proved to be the decisive goal, the midfielder firing his spot-kick into the bottom corner after he had been brought down by Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa. But Wolves dominated much of the game, spurred on by a boisterous Molineux crowd, and will feel aggrieved to have not been awarded their own penalty soon after as Olivier Skipp bundled Nelson Semedo to the floor. However, as was the story under Nuno last season, Wolves suffered from a lack of final product with Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore both going close in a string of efforts as they lost a second successive game 1-0. Tottenham maintain their perfect start to the new Premier League season, with Hugo Lloris marking his 300th Premier League appearance for Spurs with a clean sheet. #TOTTENHAM #HOTSPUR #TOTTENHAMHOTSPUR #SPURS #COYS #EPL #UECL #EuropaConferenceLeague #CarabaoCup #FACup #손흥민 #HeungMinSon #HarryKane

The Chelsea FanCast looks back, season by season, to 50 Years of Chelsea history from 1970 to the present day.Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Mark Meehan, Marco Worrall and Martin Wickham to look back at the 1996-97 season.Part Two of our look back at the 1996-97 season, one of the most memorable and emotional seasons in Chelsea's history, picks up the story in January, with Chelsea drawn against Liverpool, Premier League leaders, in the 4th round of the FA Cup.Chelsea are 2-0 down at half-time and it could have been 4 or 5. Gullit brings Mark Hughes on and the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to Hughes, Zola and a Vialli brace, Chelsea forced a remarkable comeback to win 4-2 in what is one of the favourite matches of all time for many supporters.While Chelsea's league form held up well this season with impressive wins against Liverpool, West Ham, Spurs and Sunderland and a draw against Man Utd, resulting in their highest finish (6th) since 1990. But, the second half of the 96-97 season was really all about the FA Cup.A dramatic penalty by Frank LeBeouf in Extra-Time against Leicester, was followed by a routine 4-1 thumping of Portsmouth in the quarter-final. Up against bogey side Wimbledon in the Highbury semi-final, Chelsea put on the style, winning 3-1 with Zola giving the Wimbledon defence “twisted blood”.Reaching their second FA Cup final in 3 seasons, supporters believed this was Chelsea's time as they faced Middlesbrough. None of us could have predicted that Roberto Di Matteo would smash in a goal from 30 yards after just 43 seconds to calm the nerves. Eddie Newton wrapped things up on 83 minutes as Chelsea won 2-0 to secure their first trophy in 26 years and second FA Cup after 27 years. No surprise then that the player's celebrations lasted 45 mins after the trophy was handed to Dennis Wise. The supporter's celebrations lasted much, much longer!To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.

McCreadie had surprisingly left the club during the summer and was replaced by Ken Shellito.It was to be an infuriating return the top division though, with Chelsea typically mercurial. Winning away at Man Utd (now managed by former Chelsea boss Dave Sexton) and beating Forest, the eventual Champions only to lose 6-2 to City, 5-1 to Coventry and 6-0 to Everton. In between there were mad 5-3 and 5-4 victories over Ipswich and Birmingham.But the season is remembered for one game in particular. The FA Cup third round match against Liverpool, European Champions at the time. Clive Walker ran rings round them that day and Chelsea won 4-2. Chelsea beat Burnley 6-2 in the next round and hopes were high for a tilt at the trophy until they came crashing down, like the wall at Leyton Orient in the 0-0 draw, before losing to the second division side 2-1 at the Bridge in the replay. After all that disappointment in the Cup, at least Chelsea managed to avoid relegation back to Division 2!To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.
