FA Cup round-up (27-28/01/07)

FA Cup round-up (27-28/01/07)

Pompey's Cup dreams ended for another year with a 2-1 defeat in our Fourth Round FA Cup match with Manchester United at Old Trafford, what about the others.

Saturday, 27 January 2007
Barnet 0-2 Plymouth
The lowest ranked side left in the tournament were knocked out after a spirited display against their Championship opponents.

Birmingham 2-3 Reading
Birmingham couldn't repeat their heroics of Round Three when the thrashed Newcastle 5-1, their Premiership opponents this time Reading proved too strong.

Blackpool 1-1 Norwich
Blackpool forced a replay but will have a tough job overcoming Norwich at Carrow Road but with the cup you never know?

Bristol City 2-2 Middlesbrough
After looking dead and buried at 2-0 down Bristol City fought back to draw 2-2 and force a replay. Much like Blackpool maybe City's best chance as gone but again you never know?

Crystal Palace 0-2 Preston
That man Nugent again scored a superb goal to add a few more millions to his value although he has said he wants to stay with Preston until at least the end of the season. After disposing of fellow Championship side Palace he can continue a cup run also.

Derby 1-0 Bristol Rovers
Sammy Igoe's Bristol Rovers saw their cup dreams ended against Championship high flyers Derby.

Fulham 3-0 Stoke
Premiership quality proved too much for Stoke as Fulham kept up their chances of a place at the first cup final in the new Wembley with a comfortable win.

Ipswich 1-0 Swansea
After seeing off Sheff United in round three Ipswich proved to strong for Swansea in round four, a single goal and a penalty at that was all that separate the two sides.

Luton 0-4 Blackburn
A classy Blackburn performance saw them cruise into round five without really having to break sweet against Mike Newell's Luton.

Tottenham 3-1 Southend
This seasons cup giant killers Southend couldn't pull it off again against Spurs who maintain their chances on three cup fronts.

West Ham 0-1 Watford
Watford's revival and West Ham's slumps continued. The chances of Watford staying up are not very good but they still have the welcome distraction of the cup to lift spirits, West Ham don't even have that now!

Sunday, 28 January 2007
Arsenal 1-1 Bolton
Bolton hoodoo over Arsenal almost continued but a late equaliser insured Arsenal retained an unbeaten home record.

Chelsea 3-0 Nottm Forest
No shocks at the Bridge at all as Chelsea cruised into round four at a canter. Still more than in the race for the Premiership crown, knockout stages of the champions league, in the final of the carling cup and now Round Five of the FA cup; it's been a terrible season for Chelsea hasn't it!

Man City 3-1 Southampton
At least the scummers joined us in crashing out of this season's cup in round four. They took the lead but bowed out to an in form city 3-1.

Wolverhampton 0-3 West Brom
Russell Hoult was dropped for this match for his off the field antics but it made no difference as West Brom outclassed and outplayed their rivals.

Match highlights - Pompey 0-1 Orient

Disappointing as it was, you take the rough with the smooth and cannot gloss over things when they aren't so good so here goes with the 1-0 defeat Pompey suffered against Orient.

Simply not good enough!

Call me a moaner, call me a groaner but if you think the performance against Orient was good enough then I think you're wearing blue tinted specs as that was poor from Pompey.
