Noel Gallagher: ‘FA Cup draw was more nerve-wracking than playing in Oasis’

Guitarist drew the balls with Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno

Noel Gallagher has said that he was more nervous drawing the FA Cup third round balls yesterday (November 28) than he was playing live with Oasis.

The guitarist drew the balls with Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno, with both drawing out their own favoured teams, Manchester City and Leicester City respectively, to play against each other.

“What where the odds on that, its unbelievable!” Gallagher told “I am blown away by that, when I turned the ball around I nearly dropped it. I was more nervous after that then when I walked out on stage here at Wembley. The odds were astronomical.”

Pizzorno added: “I was really nervous before the draw. I kept having visions that I was going to drop the bag and have to chase all the balls around the floor!

“Once I made that draw I completely lost it, I don’t remember pulling the next 10 balls out, I didn’t know what was going on. It was psychedelic.”

The Leicester City vs Manchester City FA Cup game will take place on January 8 or 9.
