"He's the kind of player that, without being to paranoid, after the half time whistle blows, you mark him into the tunnel."  Great stuff.

His stat line this year (all comps) 23 apps.  18 goals.  That's pretty good.  Nearly Suarezian.

meanwhile, non-league grimsby town are up on huddersfield town, 1-0 at the half.

Can I get back to you at the end of the season?

Meanwhile, the defending champions Wigan were up 2-0 on MK Dons; but they've given up 2 late 1st half goals and it's 2-2 just starting the 2nd half.
 
2014-01-04 11:10:11 AM  
Going to the pub to watch the Spurs/Arse match with other Spurs supporters.  Hopefully we outnumber the evil side! (Mostly I just want to get some food and get over my hangover).

stunning free kick pulls huddersfield town level.

League 2 Southend's 1-0 lead over Millwall (Championship) looks better now after Millwall's striker was given a straight red after appearing to stomp on a defender.

Charlie Adam has scored for Stoke. That is all.

I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I saw that on the BBC feed.

Southampton 2-2 Burnley. Burnley's scored twice in the last 8 minutes.

Newcastle 1-0 Cardiff City. Papiss Cisse breaks the scoreless drought there.
 
2014-01-04 11:26:17 AM  
Wigan regains the lead not long after their keeper denied a penalty shot
 
2014-01-04 11:30:17 AM  
Macclesfield level 1-1. A replay would suit them nicely.
 
2014-01-04 11:34:54 AM  
Southampton's back on top 4-2.

Cardiff has gone level with Newcastle
 
2014-01-04 11:35:23 AM  
Good morning/afternoon all. I think I just slept for about 15 hours. Either I slept or somebody slipped something into my drink last night. Either way, I'm well rested.

He's now scored twice. It's 3-0

Not as nicely as a win, however. GO SILKMEN

Good for him, he's looked lost out there at times over the past year or so.  Maybe this will help him back to form.

Then Crossbar denies him a hat trick on a penalty.

Paul Lambert is a few minutes away from proving himself right that certain PL clubs don't respect the FA cup. Mainly, his club.
 
2014-01-04 11:46:40 AM  
ugh. huddersfield just leveled it in the 86th minute.
 
2014-01-04 11:50:29 AM  
Who saw Southampton-Burnley as the tie of the round?
 
2014-01-04 11:50:32 AM  
oh shiat. grimsby just og'd in the 90th minute.
 
2014-01-04 11:51:20 AM  
Stoke advances. 2-1 winners over Leicester.

or grimsby - huddersfield town. the non-league team was up by a goal til the 86th minute, and they still were looking at a replay until a freak og in the 90th minute. devastating result, but a great showing by them.

The MIGHTY Oxford United's FA Cup 3rd Round game against Charlton Athletic has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at The Valley. It's the 2nd or 3rd postponement in a row for the MIGHTY ones. Helps heal niggling injuries but it feels like forever since OUFC won a match...

It's one of 4 postponements today, all for waterlogged pitches. That includes a long delayed 2nd round replay.

Also, just read that Tim Sherwood will be the 10th different Spurs manager that Wenger has faced while he's been at Arsenal.

I'm surprised it's only 10.

As for Charlton, it wasn't that long ago they were an EPL side. You would think they would/could afford to have decent drainage.

Sometimes it just happens. I remember a Real Madrid-Deportivo match getting postponed because the ball floated like a beachball on the pitch.

I'm really conflicted about this one. My heart says it wants Arsenal to win. My head says that Utd's best chance of Champions' League footie next season is to beat out Spurs for fourth place, so it's better if Spurs have the distraction of a cup run.

This was in Riazor when Deportivo were one of the top teams in the league.
