When Achraf Lazaar played in the FA Cup at Birmingham 11 days ago in the 1-1 draw. he had a ver good game playing as a left wing-back. His future at Newcastle is probably as a winger rather than as a full-back, so maybe Rafa will play him in that position tonight with Massadio Haidara [...]

The FA Cup is an unwanted interlude from the Premier League drama nowadays

On Sunday, the British public were treated to the enthralling encounter of Cardiff City and Fulham on the BBC. Only 5,199 people attended the drab 2-1 win for the away side. Cardiff manager Neil Warnock even admitted that he ‘struggled to get out of bed’ for the tie.

The rest of the Third-Round weekend wasn’t exactly a thrill a minute either.

This is the Magic of The FA Cup©®™.

It's not the fading prestige of a domestic cup competition. It's not match-ups like this that we otherwise wouldn't see. It's not CUPSETS, and it's certainly not a League Two side earning a replay that Liverpool really didn't want.

The magic is this season's first appearances for Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo this season after long struggles with injury.

I haven't posted since the massively frustrating draw with Sunderland so I thought I'd take this opprtunity to do a sort of catch up post while looking forward to Liverpool's next three fixtures in the FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League.

I never saw the Sunderland match so it's not my place to offer an opinion really, what I will say is that I knew we'd slip up against them, it's just bloody typical Liverpool isn't it?

If we draw at S'ton how many would go to the replay at the Emirates? My guess is another full house.

Our average gate through 2016 in the PL was 59,444 which is 99.4% capacity. Slightly lower for Cup games.

From the sublime of the markedly, almost scarily professional dismantling of Chelsea, to the pointedly less sublime of an FA Cup 3rd round win against lower league gubbins. This looked every inch the performance of reserves that was advertised in the trailer.

The first half was marvellously soporific stuff, as players, fans and the viewing public alike settled in for a gentle Sunday afternoon nap.
