      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.

      Stop moaning woman! It's your Cup this year, been saying it for months you'll win FA Cup.

      Don't even think it's on our radar or we'd have half a chance.

      they must have not thought it was off side. Did they have VAR?

      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.

      Looks like we're limited to two cameras for this match I'm watching. Brentford apparently just had a good chance, but neither cameraman was quite able to keep up with the action so....hard to say.  ;D :D

      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.

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

      This new overseas TV deal has absolutely killed the third round.

      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.

      Which is why I said it’s becoming like the League Cup now. I expect the day will come where the FA Cup is changed to something stupid like Carabao cup or whatever other rubbish they go for. Probably not for a lot of years yet but it’ll happen IMO.
