There is no doubt that the tie of the round will be Arsenal v Tottenham! - Do you have any comments on the draw?

You would have been too young then Steely but I remember
when West Ham played against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup semi final
back in 1991 and our defender Tony Gale was unfairly sent off which let Brian Clough's
side reach the final but the support our traveling fans gave to the team that day was
just incredible and will always live in my mind forever even though we went on to lose the game 4-0

In an ironic way Forest lost the cup final that year to Spurs which
will always be remembered for that horrible tackle that Gazza made where he injured himself and had to be taken off.

The Rams vs Chelsea game on Sunday 5th January is being screened on BT Sport.

:wink:

We have nothing to fear from Jose Mayonnaise's mercenaries, bring 'em on, hopefully their supporters will not be too disappointed to go out in the 3rd Round. :cry:

It sounds like your feeling confident KC about pulling off an upset against Chelsea!

Last season I would have taken home tie as a good draw but now I really don't think it matters. Our chances of retaining the title and pretty much gone so this has to be the competition to go for. We are the most successful team in the competition but haven't won it in 10 years!. Swansea can be a tough team on a good day so fingers crossed the real United will show up.

Nursie told me 'Positive Thinking' can achieve many things so I'm having a dollop of that with my medicinal Cognac each night, I see Chelsea as being beatable, hopefully they will have Cahill and Terry in the centre of defence and if they do then we have got a good chance of bulging the onion bag.

:wink: BELIEVE!!! :wink:

I've no time for the naysayers who say the FA Cup has lost its appeal. You can be damn sure every Spurs and Arsenal fan worthy of the name will be watching this game. Cracking stuff. You want my prediction? Oh something like this....

Liverpool will play Oldham in Round 3.

Can the Reds get revenge on them for last seasons shock defeat?

Update: Keyhole and Johnny Russell both out injured, Michael Keane's loan from Manure extended, Wak Zitbread's from Fester extended and it looks like Dawkins is to sign from Spurs.

We have had several FA Cups shocks today!

Rochdale have beaten Leeds 2-0 and Southend have knocked out Millwall 4-1 at Roots Hall.

I guess Paul Lambert will be happy that Sheff Utd won 2-1 at Aston Villa as he didn't want to take part in this competiton anyway.

Any comments on todays results?

Its going to be a very tough fixture for West Ham away at Nottingham Forest today.

We only have 14 fit first team players left and will have to call up kids from the youth and reserve sides.

Also there might not be that many Hammers fans at the game with the kick off being at 12pm.

How are Hammers fans meant to get to the City Ground with such an early start I don't know!

HT

Forest 1-0 West Ham

Nottingham should already be 2 or 3-0 ahead against this team of Hammers youngsters.

Job done ,Anfield a little quiet but overall we dominated proceedings
from start to finish ,I am a however a touch perplexed how we could
use all our subs in the clear knowledge that Agger had picked up a
knock and was struggling when he was clearly studded in yet another
ruthless tackle that went unpunished.

I was absolutely delighted Aspas netted ,it may just sway those who
fail to see his intelligent movement in and around the box.

Sterling looked back to his best and sent in countless crosses that should
in all honesty have been converted by some wasteful Liverpool play.

Gerrard's return disappointed me ,I lost count of the many overhit long balls
that sailed out of play ,or gifted Oldham the ball back.

Gone was our usual short intricate passing game ,and at times we looked
laboured ,but that's what happens when Gerrard has his way in midfield

Luis Alberto was the best performer for me ,he passed the ball around with
real panache and looks a quality player in the making ....Left bemused why
he was replaced by Lucas.

Anyway we progress and meet either Bournemouth or Burton.
