FA Cup Fourth Round Replay Open Thread

Now that Engerland has managed to dig itself out of that blizzard, there's a few FA Cup Fourth Round replays on tap for today...

2:45 EST Nottingham Forest v. Derby County
2:45 EST Aston Villa v. Doncaster
3:00 EST Blackburn Rovers v. Sunderland
3:10 EST Everton v. Liverpool

I think this makes for the ninth Merseyside derby in two weeks. Have your say you know where!

Forest scored after only 62 seconds. Poor, inept Derby.

Spectator said...

And Guzan is starting for Villa. USA! USA! USA!

JT said...

Lucas and Dossena start for LFC. I am crying at this news.

Keith said...

Villa's team also includes the Togolese Zidane, Webby, Carew, and Sidwell, the last two of whom just scored in a 4-minute span. You're on notice, Scouse of all colors!

The NY Kid said...

Fellaini's afro is totally out of control

JT said...

Keith: you're playing Doncaster. Calm down.

JT said...

Although far be it from me to stop you engaging in rampant Villatio

Keith said...

The same Mighty Doncaster that held the Villa first team (minus Ashley) to a nil-nil the first time out, thankyouverymuch.

I'm just geeked to see Salifou starting, plus Bigus's form capsule put me in a much better mood about Villa's form/chances of holding that form.

The NY Kid said...

benayoun on for Stevie G. at 15 minutes. that's not good

The NY Kid said...

surprisingly, this match is getting chippy and Cahill is prominently involved

JT said...

I hate Tim Cahill more than I ever thought possible. He really needs to be erased from the face of this earth and his existence removed from our memories.

The NY Kid said...

He is definitely very high on my cock-punch list.

JT said...

And then just gets a yellow for his premeditated yellow on Carragher. What a fucking animal. C'mon Yossi, snap his fibia like a twig

The NY Kid said...

that was an egregious dive by Baines, but I can't blame the ref for believing that Lucas committed a foul

Magnakai Haaskivi said...

Lucas probably thinks he committed the foul, too.

JT said...

Donny pull one back right before half-time

Magnakai Haaskivi said...

I'm late to the party; what happened to Gerrard?

JT said...

looks like a tweaked hamstring

phil said...

Tim Cahill is a right c*nt.

The NY Kid said...

He is indeed a C U Next Tuesday

Magnakai Haaskivi said...

Like, was it a 2-4 week tweak, or more of a "Fuck this, I just played Sunday!" tweak?

The NY Kid said...

more like a "I'm getting out of Cahill's way" tweak. Let Yossi deal with him

Keith said...

THAT's the Villa I know and love- way to make a walkover into an actual match. Jerks.

JT said...

Finally, some cards! Pienaar stamps Lucas AGAIN, and gets a yellow and then gets hurt.

Good.

phil said...

Pineaar and Cahill are reaching Terry-AFC levels of douchbaggery today. What a pair of twats.

Spectator said...

Nice fightback by Derby.... 2-2.

Groovethefish said...

since I am too unemployeed to purchase the Sentana extra on my cable package, any word on Gerrard's injury.

@JT, I agree. Just put out the lineup that played Chelsea and let it ride for fucks sake

Spectator said...

From yahoo.co.uk.... "Stevie-G injury update: hamstring tweak. Technical. A couple of weeks at most."

Spectator said...

And Derby just took the lead.... Good for them after going down two goals at 14 minutes.

Keith said...

And Delfouneso nods my worries away. 3-1; Scouse of a color to yet be determined to follow.

Mike Georger said...

I come home to a Gerrard injury. Great. Fucking great.

Mike Georger said...

"Gerrard injury rocks Liverpool"

Soccernet is just seeping with joy at that. Fuckers.

ü75 said...

Ha ha. Lucas.

Mike Georger said...

Brilliant.

Spectator said...

Mahahaha Lucas, he lives on the second floor.

Mike Georger said...

Lucas has a great future ahead of him. In Italy. He is way way way too slow for England. Still should be able to turn a profit on him.

Mike Georger said...

Seven Nation Army is so cliche

Mike Georger said...

Who the fuck is announcing this game? Torres is poor in his technical ability, quality, and character? Eat my dick.

Mike Georger said...

Xabi is so sexy with his beard. He looks like he's been up for three days trying to solve a murder.

Mike Georger said...

Attn Everton

Your song sucks.

Sincerely,
This guy

ü75 said...

20 minutes left for Torres to get a season-ending injury. Just feels like that kind of game.

ü75 said...

Never mind. I guess Babel will have to get hurt.

Mike Georger said...

Torres plays about 200 minutes in four days. Yeah Rafa your rotation policy keeps players fresh when they're fresh back from injuries. Cocksucker.

Spectator said...

Benni McCarthy just scored for Blackburn in the 118th minute. Poor, inept Sunderland.

Mike Georger said...

Game
Horrible defending again, and a bad pass from Skrtel caused it all.

Three successive draws then a loss against Everton. GTFO.

Precious Roy said...

Anyone else get a Tic-Tac commercial when the winner was being scored on their stream?

Mike Georger said...

So whatever confidence there was from Torres saving their ass Sunday is gone. Gerrard is out for who knows how long, I would guess at least for City and Madrid. Awesome.

But hey, at least Kuyt got another 120 minutes of playing time.

This season fucking sucks, thank god I can't get reliable streams for league games anymore.

Precious Roy said...

So, who would you least like to be right now? L'pool, Spartak London, or Fifthsenal?

Mike Georger said...

Well I know who I'd MOST like to be, Chelsea. They have the most talent, and to me you're more likely to pull your head out of your ass when you aren't relying on Kuyt and Ebooehhh.

Three straight years with no trophies but a Community Shield. He's learning!

Autoglass said...

Yes, it's true. ITV had gone to a commercial and Everton scored during said commercial break. All of Britain missed the goal. Hilarious. To all my Scouser brethren, I will only say this...I'm glad your out of the FA Cup. You have a very, very good squad this year and you've gotten the better of my Blues. Ta!

Precious Roy said...

Fortunately for the Gooners, only their shitty players are now being hurt. Or at least Eboue went out over the weekend with a tweak. Not sure how serious it turned out to be.

Mike Georger said...

So apparently Rafa was offered Bentley for Keane and turned it down for 12 million pounds that they did not spend.

In fucking excusable. What the fuck is going on with this club?

I look forward to them signing another crop of 'promising' youngsters which can't even make the fucking bench for an FA Cup game. Lucas' suspension will carry over to the league right? Please please please let me be right.

Mike Georger said...

I don't swear nearly enough.
