Note: The Sixth Round tie between Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest kept on hitting the headlines. In the original match at St James' Park Forest were awarded a controversial second half penalty which saw the Magpie's Pat Howard being sent off for protesting the decision. George Lyall scored from the spot to give Forest a 3-1 lead at which point the crowd invaded the pitch forcing ref Gordon Kew to take the players off for an 8 minute break. When play resumed 10-man Newcastle scored three times to win the tie 4-3 and reach the semi-finals. Forest appealed against the result and an FA commission annulled the result and ordered that the match be replayed at a neutral venue. Newcastle weren't too happy, as you might expect, and not just because of the need for a replay.  Joe Harvey, their manager said: 'Diabolical - if the result doesn't stand how can the sending off and booking still stand?' Forest weren't totally overjoyed either as they wanted the re-arranged match to be played at the City Ground but a neutral venue it was with Goodison Park hosting the re-arranged match - and a further replay - before Newcastle again got their place in the semi-final draw. So uniquely Forest played three times away against the same opposition in a pre semi final round! Newcastle were further punished by being banned from playing any home FA Cup ties in the 1974/75 season.
