    FA Cup first-round draw: What time is it, what TV channel is it on and which number is my club?

    What's happening? It's that time of the year again - the draw for the first round of the FA Cup. The road to Wembley enters the 'proper' phase. What time does it start? The draw should begin at around 19.10 and all over within 20 minutes. Which channel is it on? To watch it on television, you can tune in to BBC Two (coverage begins at 19.00). Alternatively, you can follow it right here as we bring you all fixtures as they are drawn. Seven teams to look out for By Press Association Metropolitan Police - Southern League Premier Division South Nickname: Blues Twitter followers: 3,815 The Metropolitan Police have equalled their best ever FA Cup run by knocking out National League side Havant and Waterlooville. A stunning Jack Mazzone strike grabbed the win. Established in 1919, the team was originally made up of serving members of the Metropolitan Police. That is no longer the case due to the issues with a whole squad of police officers having time off at the same time. The side made up of a whole manner of professions. But manager Gavin Macpherson, appointed in the summer after over 20 years with the club as a player and coach, has Football League pedigree including starting out with Nottingham Forest. FT - BLUES 1-0 @HWFCOfficial!!!! YESSSSSS YOU READ IT! The Blues have knocked out National League side @HWFCOfficial to reach the FIRST ROUND PROPER of the @EmiratesFACup!!! Who do we want in the draw then... A @JackMazzone wonder goal separates the two sides...#Blues��⚽️— Met Police FC (@MetPoliceFC) October 20, 2018 Haringey Borough - Isthmian League Premier Division Nickname: The Borough Twitter followers: 2,431 Two goals in the last 15 minutes saw Haringey to a 2-1 win over fellow seventh tier side Poole Town to reach the first round for the first time in their history. Much of the attention in the area goes to neighbours Tottenham, but Haringey take great pride in pointing out they are the only club on White Hart Lane. "A bus stop in Tottenham, we're just a bus stop in Tottenham" was the chant that accompanied their win over Poole. Taunton Town - Southern League Premier Division South Nickname: Peacocks Twitter followers: 8,057 Taunton are in the draw for the first round after holding big-spending National League South side Billericay Town to a 2-2 draw. Taunton's Matt Wright missed a penalty that would have sent them through. Chairman Kevin Sturmey is clearly very hands-on at the seventh-tier club, also taking on the roles of chief executive and head groundsman. Hampton and Richmond Borough - National League South Nickname: The Beavers Twitter followers: 6,301 Hampton made it through to the first round proper for the first time since 2007 by beating National League side Eastleigh 1-0 away from home. The winner came from striker Chris Dickson. The 33-year-old striker has played for a host of Football League clubs, including Charlton, as well as multiple Cypriot sides. He also has two caps for Ghana, making his Black Stars debut in 2008. Slough Town - National League South Nickname: The Rebels Twitter followers: 11,000 Slough are bidding for another cup run having reached the second round last season, losing on TV to League One Rochdale. The sixth-tier side beat Eastbourne to reach the first round proper, with Ben Harris producing a strike that will be hard to beat as goal of the tournament. Harris joined the club in December last year from Ascot United. He had played his football in New Zealand's top tier for the previous two seasons with Team Wellington and Miramar Rangers. Hitchin Town - Evostik Southern Premier Division Central Nickname: Canaries Twitter followers: 9,042 Hitchin will be in the draw for the first round after drawing 1-1 with fellow seventh-tier club Leatherhead and will now face a replay. Captain Josh Bickerstaff equalised with a penalty. He is a teacher by profession who has been playing his football for Hitchin since 2011. York City - National League North Nickname: Minstermen Twitter followers: 48,926 York knocked out fellow National League North side Blyth Spartans to reach the first round. The Minstermen dropped out of the Football League in 2016, suffering back-to-back relegations to fall to the sixth tier. City made the FA Cup semi-finals in 1955, losing out to Newcastle. Striker Jon Parkin is a well-known name. He spent two years at Bootham Crescent from 2002, before progressing to play for the likes of Hull, Preston, Stoke and Cardiff in the Football League. 'The Beast' scored his 200th career goal last season.

    Twitter gives Myles Turner's haircut mixed reviews

    It looks like Indiana Pacers big man Myles Turner shaved his playful dreads.  That "looks like" is because not everyone is convinced. Turner had his familiar look Saturday night in the Pacers' victory over Brooklyn. Insider: Kyle O'Quinn comes up big in middle as Pacers start 3-game trip Here's Turner's post Sunday night:  Here's some of the response:  Some thought the cut makes him look younger, though he's just 22. Some thought it makes him look older. We'll get a closer look at it Monday night when the Pacers play in Minnesota.

    President Donald Trump Tweetstorm – The Sunday Edition

    President Donald Trump vowed today on Twitter that the “caravan” of Central Americans heading toward the U.S. border will be turned away and must register for asylum in Mexico. The President was a little late with his tweetstorm today, but was in an angry mood when he finally unleashed it. Accordingly, the Democrats were blamed for all the world’s ills, starting with immigration laws and continuing through to their possible influence on individual 401(k)s. Here are the…
