FA Cup round-up (17-18/02/07)

Pompey had no game at the weekend with it being FA Cup Fifth Round time but how did things go for others.

Saturday, 17/02/07
Arsenal 0-0 Blackburn
The midday LIVE BBC match, the first of the weekend saw Arsenal and Blackburn play out a 0-0 stalemate.

Chelsea 4-0 Norwich
A 4-0 scoreline was flattering on Chelsea as Norwich did have chances but they didn't take them, and it costs them. Chelsea march on towards Wembley, or will it be Cardiff?

Man Utd 1-1 Reading
Our conquerors from Round Four United looked to be heading into the next round but a spirited second half comeback saw Reading earn a replay in the Evening LIVE BBC match.

Middlesbrough 2-2 West Brom
Once again Middlesbrough have to go to a replay to decide their fate. Championship side West Brom never gave up and got the draw they deserved.

Plymouth 2-0 Derby
Plymouth could even afford to miss a penalty as ex Pompey defender Darren Moore's Championship pace setters Derby crashed out, Moore also saw red.

Watford 1-0 Ipswich
A late second half goal was enough to see Watford claim their place in the Quarter Finals. The extended cup run will only help them in their battle to avoid the drop won't it as it keeps spirits high?

Sunday, 18/02/07
Fulham 0-4 Tottenham, 16:00
Much like Chelsea 24 hours earlier Spurs advanced with a slightly flattering scoreline. Victory was more than fair but a 4-0 scoreline maybe not quite so in the afternoon LIVE SKY Sports clash.

Preston 1-3 Man City, 13:10
The third and final LIVE BBC match from the weekend saw Preston take a lead through that man Nugent but City fought back to go through thanks to two late goals, maybe a touch harsh on Preston.

My tips to advance to the next round Arsenal, Chelsea, Reading, Middlesbrough, Plymouth, Watford, Fulham and Man City are all still in the Cup with the exception of Fulham. Arsenal, Reading and Middlesbrough will all require replay victories should they wish to do the same.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Its nearly draw time. I reckon even McClaren and Venables can't muck this one up, which will be a first. i reckon they'll get the quarter finals looking something like this. Chelsea v Spurs, Man U v Man C, Arsenal v Watford, and Plymouth v Middlesbrough.

Got Chelsea v Spurs right? Christ I'm bored.

Good, kept the 3 big fish apart, as we all wanted. Let's hope thay get thru their replays.

yer that was important!

Hopefully Blackburn will be more interested in the Cup Replay than our game with them on Sunday.

Blackburn have little tp play for except the Cup now, so who knows - but I can't see "Sparky" allowing any of his players to ease off the gas, he's too competitive for that. I am certain it will be just as hard to pay them Sunday as it would any other time.
TruePompeyBlue
Agree. Maybe I was reflecting on last season when we met West Ham ahead of their crucial cup clash which ultimately favoured us. We can't make excuses but it would be nice to think they have other things on their mind.

is there nothing to chat about on this site at the moment?
