FA Cup Sunday, Open Thread: 4th Round Replay and 5th Round Action
Sunday features four different matches involving Premier League clubs. The first is the Black Country derby between West Bromwich Albion, with Roy Hodgson in charge of his first match for the Baggies, against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The next match on deck is the Fourth Round FA Cup replay between Manchester City and Notts County at Eastlands. Then we have the FA Cup match between Fulham and Bolton, followed by Leyton Orient versus Arsenal.
Depending on who you support or what type of football match you prefer, there should be plenty to enjoy out of those four. I have a feeling that City will cruise at home against Notts County, so I’m not expecting much of a contest there. The derby between West Brom and Wolves should be very tense, so that may end up being the most riveting match of the day. Although don’t expect a tirade of goals there. Fulham against Bolton could be a close encounter, while Orient against Arsenal will be interesting to see how the Gunners perform at a lower league team after beating the best team in the world, Barcelona, earlier this week.
As always, post your questions, rants or observations about the matches either before, after or during the games on Sunday, in the comments section below.
