FA Cup/EPL Open Thread: Tangled Up in Blues

Spot the selfish, whiny one


Only three games today, and none worth that much coverage (sorry, Spartak fans). That game's a bit dire so far, with Spartak holding a 1-0 lead at half-time. Where is this Coventry team we saw play with gusto and style at Carrow Road last weekend? Oh, that's right, their best player, the left-back Dan Fox, isn't playing.

Meanwhile, Essien's on the bench, meaning he's about a week away from being that bulldog in defensive midfield again, much to the chagrin of any team still left to travel to Stamford Bridge.

We might well liveblog some La Liga later on in the form of the Madrid Derby, but for now, this is it. Gripe about Spurs, or offer your prayers for a home win at Craven Cottage.

Whatever you do, come cupset with us after the jump.

FA Cup Fixtures:
Coventry 0, Spartak London 1 (half-time)
Fulham v. Manchester United (12.30pm kick-off)

EPL's Sole Release:
Sunderland v. Tottenham (10am kick-off)

And a massive match for the Canaries, who travel to Blackpool today for a legitimate six-pointer. COME ON, NORWICH!

Must say I'm happy to see Essien back on the pitch.

that was a fantastic pass from Quaresma and finish from Alex.

Hate.

Did FSC just go to paid programming after showing a match?

Spectator said...

Yup, they did.... Let me tell you all about the Turbo Jam (tm).

Oh, look, we've conceded on 2'

Precious Roy said...

Oh, look, you scored on 2' left.

Eh, the only reason I care is because I've got Keane in fantasy. By the way, what happened to Blackburn's 3rd match? Thought I could count on Roque Santa Cruz for some points.

phil said...

Keane's had a huge week in Yahoo (I'm also an owner). 39 points. Amr Zaki continues to disappoint, though.

Stopped in for a quick COME ON ARSENAL!! Beautiful touch and finish by Vela. Eduardo to get one in the second.

JT said...

That's a good prediction, Jape. Edu's goal was lovely.

jape said...

WOW - had no idea it would be that nice. What a pair of goals.

Eladio said...

I guess Song and Eboue aren't 100% useless after all.

watch out you villa cunts the gunners are coming!

Andrew said...

Welp, three against a Colaship side. Decent performance, and Eddie's finish was about as perfect as is possible.

I'm pretty sure Fellani just used his hair to finesse the ball over the keeper and into the net.

Precious Roy said...

Wow, we actually look good... as long as we're only playing a Championship side in an FA Cup match.

Oh wait. There's no more of those left.
