FA Cup 2013/14

Villa losing to Sheffield United at home without Vlaar, their defence really is awful.

Outragous panenka just from Djmael Abdoun for Forest against West Ham's reserves.

So disappointed our approach to the Stoke game was so half-arsed. Stoke are rubbish, we could have beaten them if we took the game serious. I love a good cup run. Granted, we would have faced Chelsea in the next round, but still.

If Carlsberg did forum signatures......

All eggs on the league?
Nugent benched said it all.

Allardyce really didn't care about the FA Cup. Took off Downing and Diarra, two of the few senior players playing wonder what's happened to Alou Diarra btw. 44 caps for France! but he hardly gets a sniff at West Ham. Downing and Jarvis both cost a lot but have hardly shown anything too for West Ham while Rydel Morrison likes to run with the ball but is just so raw. Taraabt 2 at the moment.

The 4th round draw is not really inspiring, but in all honesty I haven't been a fan of the FA Cup in recent years, half empty stadiums and reserve teams no matter what guys like Martin Tyler try to spew on the commentary

I think Sunderland vs. the Harriers is probably pick of the round. Be great to see a giant killing there.

Mine too

and as the FA still is in the late 80s when it comes to the FA cup, we can't see anything of the game

Well do we need to see it

Obviously Man City are playing rather shite today.

Can't rule them out in making a comeback such is their goalscoring prowess but I don't know how many games Man City have racked up the goals in coming from behind in a match. Most times if not all Man City have not been losing when they smash the goals in.

Not looking good really.

Some of Man City's back-ups are probably not helping themselves.

Luckily the Bundesliga is back 4-0 to the 1FCN , Dortmund was drawing at home and KdB's debut

Not a problem for Man City

But I also had Dortmund in the accm. Thought they might get back on track after the winter break. Now that was a bad pick.

Not too many surprises today, but Man City, Swansea and especially Sunderland made things difficult for themselves against lower league opposition. Wigan eliminate Palace but I don't consider that too big of an upset.

Webb had a terrible performance today, he will overshadow the result

anyway the quarterfinal draw was made earlier

Arsenal vs. Everton
Brighton/Hull vs. Sunderland
Sheffield United vs. Sheffield Wednesday/Charlton Athletic
Manchester City vs. Wigan Athletic

Repeat of the previous season FA Cup final, potential Sheffield derby as well. These matches take place in three weeks

Sheffield derby would be nice, too bad they're both quite poor, especially United.
