Do like the FA Cup, regardless of what Poncho says, and would love to win it as my earliest memories of footy in general are the early eighties and us Spuds didn’t too to badly then!!
Any upsets on the cards? Could be, that is the one good thing about the “big-dogs” playing weakened teams against the underdogs, really hard to guess what is going to happen. Could be a banana skin against Tranmere, you never know, right now the Spuds have a bit of an injury list so I see a possible stronger team than you might expect playing… or it really will be the kids playing…
Liverpool should use this as an opportunity to rest Firmino, Van Dijk and Robertson and maybe 1-2 others. If we don’t take the piss, we can rest a few and still go through. priority has to be the league though, so there is always a risk when you rest anyone. A risk we should take.
Long time but you’re right Adlab VAR came up with the right decision. I don’t think players from both Club’s should be surrounding the Referee whilst it’s being discussed with the Video Ref though that doesn’t happen in Rugby.
Not sure why United v Reading was on tv live – isn’t that 1,239,596 consecutive United FA Cup games shown live now? Surely Chelsea v Notts Forest or Derby v Southampton would have been a more attractive proposition.
