FA Cup Saturday, 6th Round: Open Thread

Today’s FA Cup action kicked off with Birmingham City against Bolton Wanderers. The game has been an exciting encounter thus far between two teams trying to win to take their side to a FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. Bolton has history on its side and more motivation. Their Bolton legend Nat Lofthouse died recently, the man who won the 1958 FA Cup for Bolton after scoring two goals. But as soon as Bolton looks like they’re heading to victory in this game, back come Birmingham.

In the other match of the day, Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in a scintillating match.
