It`s the most magical time of the year, so the song goes.

But it`s not Christmas, it`s the draw for the FA Cup 3rd round that has gripped out attention.

We`re at the stage where the big boys from the Premier League and the Championship join those clubs who have battled through the first two rounds and some who have endured several qualifying ties.

In the draw rehearsal, Chelsea got a home tie against Cardiff City.

But when it came to the actual draw, held at Hereford United`s Edgar Street home, the outcome was slightly different with Chelsea`s ball number 13 coming out of the contraption they use now, being given an away tie against the Championship side Norwich City.
