FA Cup Third Round Sunday, Open Thread

fa cup1 FA Cup Third Round Sunday, Open ThreadTwo big FA Cup matches are on television today. The first featuring Manchester United against Liverpool, where Kenny Dalglish returns for his first game in charge of the club again. The second features Leicester City, managed by Sven Goran-Eriksson against Manchester City. Both ties promise to be very entertaining.

Before, during and after the games, post your questions, observations and rants in the comments section below.

Some immediate observations from the Manchester United against Liverpool game:

  • Nice to see Kenny Dalglish getting a warm welcome from Manchester United fans at Old Trafford before the game kicked off. That’s something you don’t see too often, especially someone involved with Liverpool,
  • Dalglish has named a strong starting line-up for Liverpool. Konchesky has been replaced by Aurelio (Konchesky was touch-and-go whether he would make this game from injury). Joe Cole has been dropped and isn’t even listed as a substitute, so in comes Maxi Rodriguez. Martin Kelly returns for Liverpool, the impressive right back. Agger comes in instead of Kyrgiakos, good move.
