In the first game it looks like Ings is back for the Saints after his Covid break.

Aubameyang is not in the Arsenal squad, from Twitter:

Mikel Arteta says Aubayemang "had a personal matter in the last few hours and we had to send him back."


Later on I'll of course be watching the Nottingham Forest game, cause we're not on the telly that often. We're playing Swansea, so have a chance to be responsible for putting the entirety of Wales out of the cup...

First time I've noticed it, but the Saints shirt has the Bitcoin logo on it.

Saints lead after a fairly tame shot takes a nasty deflection off Gabriel that just gives it enough to put it past the keeper.

Probably go down as an OG, the original shot wars off target.

Since  the MIGHTY Oxford United have already been knocked out of the FA Cup (Curse you, Peterborough!), they have a League One March against Bristol Rovers, assuming that it hasn't been COVID or weather canceled...
 
2021-01-23 7:48:56 AM  
Oh. And it looks like the previously postponed epl game between Villa and Newcastle has been slotted in this evening as well, cause neither team is in the cup.

Peter Walkers. I rate him.

Morning all. Usual story: up early, forgot to tune in for the early game.

Too early in day to figure out how to save an image from IG.

This has the feeling of a game where Saints need to kill it or they're going to get caught out.

Arsenal are barely in it at the moment, but they have quite the bench available.

So they'll collapse any minute?

I stepped out to make morning coffee for Mrs Mistake, what did I miss?

hard to tell, the camera cut to a replay just as it started.

It's a testament to how badly Arsenal's done in the transfer market of late that this window has had 2 contracts rescinded because they couldn't get anything for them.

Nothing must wind up a manager more than someone committing a foul throw.

I raise you a handled backpass.
 
2021-01-23 8:38:24 AM  
Now there's something you don't see every day, having to retake a goal kick cause the attackers were still in the penalty area.

at least those can happen cause the player is under pressure. But a foul throw, it's literally dead ball. No excuses.

I'm still waiting for the second half to start.  

It's almost as though I had stayed in bed instead.
 
2021-01-23 8:49:46 AM  
This is going to go to extra time unless Saints wake up a bit.
 
2021-01-23 8:55:00 AM  
Stupid challenge by Thomas
 
2021-01-23 8:55:06 AM  
my feet are cold.

Hello all.
I guess Arsenal only use the death metal font for cup matches
 
2021-01-23 9:01:27 AM  
Wait, why is there no VAR here today? I thought all the fa cup games at epl grounds had it?

They couldn't be arsed.

Arteta stepped on a LEGO brick again.
 
2021-01-23 9:08:03 AM  
That's pretty disappointing from Arsenal. They played a weakened side, and they still probably had enough chances to at least force extra time.

Ok, going to go for a nice walk in the sunshine and be back to watch the Forest game on the hour... I wonder where the upsets might come today? Cant see any of the EPL sides playing today losing their games.
 
2021-01-23 9:18:26 AM  
And SHampton holds on to defeat Arse.

The Shut The FA Cup will now have a new holder.
 
2021-01-23 9:24:39 AM  
so the day just got better

my feet are still cold, though

I don't think it's today, but I could see Manchester United being upset by the plucky upstarts they're hosting at Old Trafford

I hope you'll be disappointed.

I still hold onto the hope that promotion means we jettison Kyle Naughton once and for all.
 
2021-01-23 9:51:32 AM  
FFPL's unofficial team of the week is Bristol City.
 
2021-01-23 9:52:47 AM  
which match to watch next?  so many ... err, intriguing matchups.
 
2021-01-23 9:53:16 AM  
I get to decide if I want to watch Swansea v Forest on BT with a single disinterested commentator, or on BBC Wales with what I expect to be a fairly biased commentary... hmmm.
 
2021-01-23 9:54:24 AM  
leaning towards barnsley norwich for no reason (pukki!)

they literally just started the coverage by showing Forest getting beat by Spurs in the final.

Sets the tone.

While it would be entertaining to watch Doncaster dump West Ham out, I'm going to watch Forest in solidarity with Cyrene Valantion. Also I remember Forest's glory days under Clough.

Meanwhile, City have some problems...

Midfielder De Bruyne has been sidelinedfor up to six weeks with a hamstring injury, while striker Sergio Aguero misses out after testing positive for coronavirus.
 
2021-01-23 10:05:20 AM  
Stuck with a Portuguese stream. Amused by them referring to the FA Cup as the "Cup of England". Don't let Carabao hear that.

Their bench will only be worth half a billion pounds for the next few weeks.

West Ham already lead.

This announcer loves nationalities almost as much as Univision Guy loves full names.
 
2021-01-23 10:09:21 AM  
Well this is going to be a long afternoon.
 
2021-01-23 10:09:31 AM  
the espn app is so bad:

turned it on 2 minutes early, and that doesn't work, and you can't stay on the stream because it will never start that way. so i went back 5 minutes after kickoff because adhd got me. still didn't work. had to go to a different screen and reload all the matches to get one to play.
 
2021-01-23 10:10:08 AM  
He just called Forest the "Tricky Trees" in English.

/GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAL
 
2021-01-23 10:10:51 AM  
swansea up i see

maybe i should jump over to that match, eh? 

the boring espn play caller will no doubt be boring
