      Not a great draw, especially just a few days after we play Citeh away, but looks like Wolves have lost their way lately plus they should suffer more over Xmas than us with the many fixtures.

      Well I’d like to think it can’t go much worse than the horror show vs West Brom last season.

      Think I’d prefer a Premier League team though, theoretically makes it slightly easier if you keep progressing through. Not to mention I think I’m still scarred from the embarrassment vs Oldham.

      Appreciate what Pochettino did in bringing Kane on for fans of both clubs. Fair play to him. But Jesus, one stupid 50/50 ball or center half looking to make a name for himself, and that could have looked a very stupid decision for them.

      Anyone see the United penalty?

      Basic misunderstanding of the rules as Fred is offside before Mata is fouled meaning the first offence is a foul against United.

      A pen to United there is a worrying misunderstanding of basic football rules as far as I understand it.

      Not as if it's a once seen incident. They took their time and had many looks to come to that decision.

      I subscribed for Monday's game, but thought I'd check in on Harry Wilson for Derby vs. Southampton. Alas, he's on the bench today. Then I thought I'd take a stroll down recent  memory lane and see Cameron Brannagan with Oxford United at Brentford, but he's not in the squad. I'm still watching this one thought because I can hear every word spoken by every player on the park, or so it seems.

      EDIT: Just realized Sergi Canos, he of one senior appearance for LFC, is in the Brentford lineup.

      Rafa's Newcastle losing to Blackburn who are on the wrong side of the championship. Confirms to me he isn't getting the best out of those players.

      What's the quality like on espn+,my dodgy one has been a bit stoppy just for like a fraction of a second ,moved over to Fleetwood v wimbledon.

      The streams I've looked at today technically have been good. The football...not so much.

      Not good considering the FA Cup was struggling as it was.

      Apart from Foden, City played near on the strongest line up they could. Obviously ran out with a big 7-0 win but after a busy Xmas schedule, they’ve had the FA Cup, Wolves at the weekend and then they are back in action a few days later again for the league cup. Hopefully all this game time takes its toll on them.

      They could but I don’t think that’s their priority. There’s a chance they could (if the powers that be have the bottle to be consistent), be banned from the Champions League next season so I think they could soon be prioritised in that direction. The FA Cup used to be a good thing to win but it’s becoming more and more like the League Cup at the moment.

      Also the players City have, you’d think they’d be able to rest the likes of Sterling for a game against Rotherham but still get a comfortable win.

      Look at most of the recent fa cup winners. Teams challenging on several fronts mostly who finish top 4. Elite mentality

      It’s not though; Arsenal 3 FA Cup wins in the last 6 years but competing for nothing else, Wigan who were relegated, United a couple of years ago with just the Europa League to fight for and Chelsea last season with nothing to fight for and no hope of getting top 4.
      Also look at the runners up in the last 6 years - Hull, Villa, Palace.
      The last time 2 top 4 teams met in the final before last season was 2007, Chavs and Mancs...although Chelsea weren’t even top 4 last season.
      Would be great to win it obviously, my point though is you get the lower division and bottom end Premier League team now not taking it all that seriously, resting most of their team because they want the strongest team fit for the league. Used to be just the bigger teams doing that, now you get everyone doing it.

      Just having the league cup causes the FA cup to lose its uniqueness. They should scrap the league cup and increase the prize money in the FA cup. The stupid amount of fixtures is weakening both domestic cups, watered down trophies now. I'd gladly take an early exit from both of them this year to win a real respected trophy.

      they have the usual culprits think it should be seeded its only not that relevant to the top teams because quite frankly the prize money is crap. Ask the lower league teams fans who have won this weekend they will still be buzzing.
      The Fa have done nothing to protect the Competition which is what the FA do well f**k things up.
      Should have made the winner the CL qualifier

      I'm fed up of being told how great it is to go out of this cup and that cup. It's helped us win all of one trophy since we last won it.

      This stage of it, is all about the minnows. It's their big day out. For the bigger clubs, it's a chore that you have to get through. Once you reach the quarters/semis, players and fans of those involved, take it seriously and treat it with the respect it deserves.

       :roll: :roll: :roll: What the f**k! If I'd of known Klopp was sending his 3/4 string out would never of said. Clearly he didn't want to win it, I see his point for a weaken team (( priorities elsewhere )) but as a fan with no silverware for a long time I would still be disappointed.

      Ha! Well, I actually thought we were the home team until I’d seen the line ups and saw theirs before ours. Thinking a few days ago we were the home team I thought we’d scrape out a 2-1 win so went for that. But, as we were obviously the away team, turns out I predicted a 2-1 defeat.

      just remember who it was who killed the FA CUP it was UTD when they decided not to even put a team in it since then its been quite common for teams not to treat it as the greatest Cup Comp in the world because it clearly isn't anymore.

      6 teams from the EPL went out at the first hurdle, and we were the only one of the top 6. All the others qualified, and can still go to back to Wembley in the spring. The FA Cup may not be what it was, but it is the top domestic competition in the country and we should give it a decent shot.

      People say we won't remember it come May. I can remember us going out to Luton and Bolton as holders, I can remember us going out to Bristol City after a floodlight failure and 2 replays at home, which was the end of the line for Souness. So I will remember this, whether we win something else or not. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Hillsborough, and I personally believe that we owed it to the families to give it a proper go this year.

      The last 13 years of the club's Competition Prioritisation Scheme, has seen us bring the grand total of one trophy home in all that time. While I understand why competitions are prioritised against others, I'm personally fed up of being told year in year out, that it's a "blessing in disguise" to go out of them. The records at this club show it just doesn't work and therefore I just cannot agree with it.

      What a strange statement to post.
      I don't think you speak for the Families and if you ever hear of any of them speak they simply love Jürgen and the work he is doing here.
      Modern football is about two things The EPL and the CL both of which are watched globally. Tonight City and Burton are playing who is going to pay to watch that .
      Its not my choosing its just the way the game has gone.

      Modern football is about two things The EPL and the CL both of which are watched globally. Tonight City and Burton are playing who is going to pay to watch that .
      Its not my choosing its just the way the game has gone.

      No it hasn't. The competition itself hasn't changed, the image has. The global fan base are as frustrated as the local fan base with our rate of success in recent years. I think most would just take anything by now. Just have something to show for it.

      I don't speak for the families, but with the year that's in it, we should have gone for it imo. Get out there, win the tie by half time, make the subs we need to, see the game out, onto the next one. That's what most of our main rivals did last week, some of them still have 4 trophies to play for.

      But we don't, and some of those who don't play on a regular basis, may never play for the club again, as we have to play  full strength sides from now until the end of the season anyway.

      6 teams from the EPL went out at the first hurdle, and we were the only one of the top 6. All the others qualified, and can still go to back to Wembley in the spring. The FA Cup may not be what it was, but it is the top domestic competition in the country and we should give it a decent shot.

      People say we won't remember it come May. I can remember us going out to Luton and Bolton as holders, I can remember us going out to Bristol City after a floodlight failure and 2 replays at home, which was the end of the line for Souness. So I will remember this, whether we win something else or not. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Hillsborough, and I personally believe that we owed it to the families to give it a proper go this year.

      The last 13 years of the club's Competition Prioritisation Scheme, has seen us bring the grand total of one trophy home in all that time. While I understand why competitions are prioritised against others, I'm personally fed up of being told year in year out, that it's a "blessing in disguise" to go out of them. The records at this club show it just doesn't work and therefore I just cannot agree with it.

      Hmm, even looking back at the replay, Vestergaard's right hand plays the Derby player on?

      I am so confused about the rules. I think I read somewhere at the start of this season that they only look at foot/leg to determine whether the player is on or offside, but I have seen plenty of times this season where goals have been disallowed because an arm was "offside".

      Think the offside rule is if a part of your body is offside that you can score a goal with

      No way that should have been reviewed

      Onside for me.
      His foot is beyond the Southampton defender maybe but the Southampton defender is leaning level with his foot

      I don't think anyone looked at that live and thought offside

      Yet VAR look at it for about 3 minutes and decide it is (wrongly )

      To overturn it should be clear and obvious
      That certainly wasn't that

      VAR can take as long as it likes. It would be much shorter though if the host broadcaster showed the replays sooner. Every goal must be checked, so that justice is done.

      In this incident the foot was clearly off. So the right decision was made, and a team could not benefit from a goal that should not be given.

      Southampton defenders shoulder is level with his foot

      Got it wrong

      Potentially ruined the game

      Should be to correct the clear and obvious if anything at all

      Miles ahead of Woodburn. Only regret with wilson is that it will have taken him to around 21/22 for us to realise how good he could potentially be.
