Looking Ahead to the FA Cup Third Round On US Television

Without a doubt, the third round of the FA Cup is one of the highlights of the calendar year for football supporters. It’s a golden opportunity to see the giants of football compete against amateur teams made up of people with ordinary professions such as postmen, labourers, accountants and policemen, […]

FA Cup Tour Visits Millwall FC: Video

A lot has changed in the world since the FA Cup, the oldest football competition in the world, began in 1871. But the magic of the tournament still remains. The prospect of non-league minnows upsetting giants. And the nostalgia of seeing matches played in front of standing-room only crowds in […]

The FA Cup’s Fastest Goal Came Too Soon

Everton’s Pienaar launched the ball into the box from the left side. Chelsea’s Mikel got his head to it but could not clear. Fellaini headed the ball back into the danger area where Louis Saha waited, unmarked, uncontended. He spins into the volley to catch it perfectly with his left […]

FA Cup Final Live Blog: Everton v Chelsea

The last dance of the season, of every season, the FA Cup Final is the jewel in the English Football Crown. Last year’s final between Cardiff and Portsmouth was arguably the exception, but this year’s certainly isn’t: Underdogs Everton come into the final for the first time in 14 years, since Joe […]

The FA Cup: Everton Can Win

I was completely seduced by last year’s FA Cup. Barnsley and Cardiff City charged toward the final in a gripping giant-killing warpath. They toppled Liverpool, Chelsea and Middlesbrough in their wake. (Boro were still a mid-table Premier League side, so their undoing was still a feat.) While only Cardiff made […]

FA Cup Final Preview

The “Power Of Scotland”

Reaching the FA Cup final was a long overdue reward for Everton manager David Moyes.  As the Premierships’ third longest serving manager, Moyes has brought consistent performances for a low budget club.  It is worth considering that at Everton he has been subject to budgetary constraints that perhaps much of […]

Not a Happy Guus While Rafa’s Going No Where,

I’m happy Guus is not as thrilled about Chelsea’s 1-0 win as I am. A bit of a side bar before I get into the news tonight. Chelsea are extremely lucky they are a goal to the good heading into their Champions League second leg. For starters, I don’t believe […]

Samba Saves Blackburn Blushes

Blackburn Rovers have to consider themselves fortunate they are looking at a Ricoh Arena replay instead of losing in front of the most faithful of the faithful at Ewood Park. After Roque Santa Cruz put Blackburn ahead inside of ninety seconds, two second half goals from the Sky Blues should […]
