I've just got confirmation of a ticket for the Leeds match, and I'm anticpating a keenly fought affair, with Tottenham coming out victorious of course. Leeds have had some real patchy form this season but I have respect for a club with such a proud history and tradition. I think they'll relish a crack at a Premiership club and will make it as hard as possible. I forecast a 2-3 cup classic.

These 2 games will be live on ITV

Sat 26th Jan Stoke City v Man City FA Cup 4th Round 12:45 ITV / ITV HD

Sun 27th Jan Oldham Athletic v Liverpool FA Cup 4th Round 16:00 ITV / ITV HD

I guess ITV sport bosses think that there could be a possible upset at Boundary Park!

Any more thoughts on the draw?

Funny how Mancini decides, completely and alone, who will win the Stoke v Man City match.

In this FA Cup 4th round I would consider maybe
Millwall to beat Aston Villa and for a really long shot back BS side Maccelsfield to beat PL outfit Wigan.

Stoke City 0 - 1 Manchester City

Pablo Zabaleta scored a late winner for City to avoid both sides having to require a replay.

Norwich City 0 - 1 Luton Town
Macclesfield Town 0 - 1 Wigan Athletic
Derby County 0 - 3 Blackburn Rovers
Hull City 0 - 1 Barnsley
Middlesbrough 2 - 1 Aldershot Town
Reading 4 - 0 Sheffield United
Huddersfield Town 1 - 1 Leicester City
Queens Park Ra… 2 - 4 Milton Keynes Dons
Bolton Wanderers 1 - 2 Everton
Brighton & Hov… 2 - 3 Arsenal

What a result for BS Premier side Luton Town who won 1-0 away PL outfit Norwich City!

Congrats also to League 1 team the MK Dons for a fantastic 4-2 victory away at Redknapp's QPR.

I understand that there was trouble in the stands during Everton's 2-1 success at Bolton?

Arsenal needed a late winner from Walcott on 85 minutes to beat Brighton 3-2 in a terrific tie at the Amex.

Any comments on todays results?

Terrible performance from Arsenal again today. I think we played to many players that were coming back from long stints out.
Couldn't string any decent passes together and lacked the commitment going forward unless the opposition score.
Anyway a wins a win ,but nothing god cam out of this for me other than we are still in the competition. Would like to have seen blinding performance against this level of opposition from those players mentioned ,that would have made me feel a little comfortable going into the tail end of the season. Chesney had a shocker today of the regular players and Meretesacker was at fault for one of them goals for being on the wrong side of the player on the set play.

Luton Town made history in their victory by becoming the first non league team to beat a Premier League side in the FA Cup.

I can't see there being any more surprises in this afternoon's matches!

Well, that went t1ts up, too many players were below par, too many mishit passes and insufficient bite in midfield meant that The Rams didn't deserve to progress into Round 5.

Kazim-Richards didn't endear himself to the Derby fans with his arrogance and feigned injuries, definitely a candidate for the 'Twat of the Year Trophy'.

Referee Twatwell was his normal self, lacking in consistency and blowing his Acme Thunderer louder than any other referee to let everyone know he was in charge.............deluded nobhead!!

Spurs out ,another shocker! Leeds are a big club ,but Spurs have players that should have walked this in.`

And as i am writing this Oldham have gone 1 up within a minute of their match against Liverpool, doubt if it will end up like that. If it does ,it will have to go down as one of the biggest upset legs of any tournament in the history of football.
crazy!

So much for my previous comment that there shouldn't be any more cup upsets!

At Boundary Park at half time its Oldham 2-1 Liverpool

Are we on for another shock result?

No excuses, we didn't convert our chances today, and gave Leeds a 2 goal lead. It was never going to be easy in Yorkshire, but I'm really disappointed to be out of the FA Cup. It was a realistic piece of silverware for Spurs to win, 4th place in the league doesn't hit the spot the way a cup does. Oh well, the devil vomits in my kettle again.
Just a tip for anyone coming to Elland Road either in the cup or (maybe next season?) in the league - get there early. The car parks were full up when I got there with about 10 minutes to spare, and there was a team of frickin' parking inspectors slapping penalty notices on cars parked up on the side streets. I missed the first 20 minutes looking for a legitamate parking space.
I'm sure some Spurs fans had a sh*t day made even worse by a parking fine after watching their team getting dumped out of the cup. :(

Oh well, on the bright side Liverpool have been dumped out of the Cup by Oldham. :D My eldest brother is a 'Pool fan and I'm sure he was looking forward to rubbing my nose in Cup misery.
