FA Cup Saturday, Open Thread: 4th Round Replays and 5th Round Action

fa cup1 FA Cup Saturday, Open Thread: 4th Round Replays and 5th Round ActionIt’s a different type of weekend in English football these next two days. There’s one Premier League match being played tomorrow (West Brom vs Wolves), while some of the other Premier League teams are competing in the FA Cup. Those FA Cup matches kick off today with Chelsea playing Everton, Manchester United against non-league Crawley Town, Birmingham City against Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke against Brighton.

The opportunity for a FA Cup upset in today’s matches is slim. But that’s what FA Cup upsets are all about… when you least expect them, sometimes a team from lower down the table can beat a Premier League side. So best of luck to Sheffield Wednesday, Crawly and Brighton today. Even if they lose, let’s hope they keep it interesting and close.

As always, before, after or during matches, feel free to use the comments section below as an open thread. May you enjoy your Saturday full of English soccer!
