Sheffield go up... for two minutes until it is called back for an offside so obvious even VAR couldn't miss it.

Wonder how long before Luiz sets up a Blades goal then?

Fun Fact: I only found out this match was going on now because Squires reposted his excellent Where's Ozil comic.

I miss the days when FA Cup semi-finals were played at neutral club grounds around the country. I understand that all the money sunk into Wembley means that's not coming back any time soon, but it seemed like a happy reminder that London is not the center of the football world.

He seems destined for a slide towards anonymous retirement unless a big club takes a chance at him.

Side Show Bob looks like he needs to be replaced.
Good news for Arsenal.

Whoever is doing the crowd noise seems to be watching a completely different game from me.

Something about Sheffield United players coming up from a lower tier

It's not been a great game, but it feels like there could be another goal at either end.

If you don't keep a careful eye on him, Big Sam will eat the pie you paid for right in front of you while you are distracted, because he will eat ALL the pies given the slightest chance to do so.

So what's the consensus on the penalty decision? BT sport seemed to think it was correct, talkSport radio are going with 'Sheffield United robbed by var again'.

I thought there wasn't a lot in it and he made the most of it it, but it was a foul and therefore a penalty.

Seeing it in "real time" there wasn't much doubt in my mind.

McGoldrick with the right place, right time equalizer.
Off the long throw in.
1-1

That was not the greatest defensive clearance attempt ever.

I think Steve Bruce would give Big Sam a run for his money though

Just how much Fergie time did they give the Blades to try to level this match?
 
2020-06-28 10:01:36 AM  
It's only in the Magic of the FA Cup that a scrappy, hardluck team like Arsenal could advance in such heart-stopping fashion.
 
2020-06-28 10:04:49 AM  
And now we have 90 minutes or so until Watford and Southampton either bore us to tears or surprise us with a barn-burner match.
