    United and West Ham have second leg at home which helps. With City strugging away Wet Ham need to get a draw or lose by no more than a couple of goals and they will like their chances. United should see off Sunderland. At least on paper.

    Draw is

    Sunderland Vs. Manchester United

    Manchester City Vs. West Ham

    Hoping for City vs United and West ham vs Sunderland semis. Over two legs the Manchester derby would be fantastic.

    Sorry Gaffer but these two are not up to standards. Phil Schoen thinks boxing day is this Saturday.

      Phil Schoen just has a loud voice and doesn’t add anything to the proceedings. In fact he ruins it. Hudson can be very funny with his “liberal” use of the english language and the fact that he played the game helps him somewhat. Whenever I hear Schoen commentating I hit the mute button.

    Gaffer any idea when the draw is for the semi final?

    • San Fransiscan

      December 18, 2013 at 4:37 pm

      It is right after United’s match.

  6. San Fransiscan

    December 18, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    In the words of Ray Hudson, “that was orgasmic”.

    Stoke caught in defensive confusion. Ah, well.

  8. Christopher Harris

    December 18, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    Uh-oh. West Ham United just grabbed a second, to take a 2-1 lead away against Spurs.

      Bring back AVB!

    Great goal celebrations by United players after scoring the opening goal. Chicharito was over the moon.

    • Mufc77

      December 18, 2013 at 4:22 pm

      It really is a shame he can’t get more playing time as he’s a top pro who doesn’t complain and just gets on with the job.

    LOl Hudson talking about Hernandez tremendous hold up play when Hernandez failed to control the ball.

    Ronaldinho still class with a fantastic free kick goal for Athletico Miniero.

  12. Guy

    December 18, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Stoke’s passing skills still rudimentary at best. Tough to win like that.

    Stoke-Man United game stopped due to hailstorm disrupting the game.

      Stoke vs Manchester United match starts back up again after 7 minute delay due to hail storm.

    This Spurs-WHU match is unusually entertaining – given what one might have expected coming in.

    Lovely weather in Stoke as usual.

  16. Guy

    Lovely weather.

    Ray Hudson gets overly excited sometimes.

    I’m watching on Comcast and its improved some as I can actually hear the fans now.

  19. San Fransiscan

    December 18, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    Theur cutting the live pictures to the fans every now and then. Why?

    This is Bein not the live feed.

  20. San Fransiscan

    December 18, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Gaffer. The fans audio is not from this match.

  21. Marc

    December 18, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Strong lineup for United. Is the semi-final played at Wembley? I thought the league cup semi was two legs, home and away. Unless they changed this.

    • San Fransiscan

      December 18, 2013 at 2:52 pm

      Yup its played over two legs.

  22. Christopher Harris

    December 18, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    Nothing wrong with the production on my end. And Phil Schoen is one of the best, if not the best, American announcer in the business. Ray Hudson, love him or leave him, is one of a kind. I love him.

    • Mufc77

      December 18, 2013 at 2:53 pm

      Maybe you watching something different gaffer because all I can hear is the commentator and nothing else. It sounds like they are 10,000 miles from the stadium.

      • San Fransiscan

        December 18, 2013 at 2:57 pm

        I’m guessing their using the fans audio feed from the spurs game.

      • Christopher Harris

        December 18, 2013 at 2:58 pm

        I’m watching the match on beIN SPORT via DishWorld. The commentary and audio is fine for me (most of the noise is coming from the United supporters).

        • San Fransiscan

          December 18, 2013 at 3:02 pm

          Definitely not. I’m watching it via dishworld as well and that is not United’s fans noise.

          • San Fransiscan

            December 18, 2013 at 3:04 pm

            Now they got it right. Wasnt like this for the first 15 minutes of the game.

    • Cantona

      December 18, 2013 at 4:36 pm

      Sorry Gaffer can’t stand the fat man and the darts announcer… Absolutely Horrible –streaming time

      Have to ask why they don’t just use the UK feed …

      On the other hand Dyer and Joy were actually good yesterday… Joy only said “quality” twice

      Cantona—

  23. San Fransiscan

    December 18, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    What is going on?

    Just use the feed coming from the UK. Clearly this is not the audio from the ground.

  24. Mufc77

    December 18, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    Wow this really is horrendous a production from these clowns.

  25. Mufc77

    BeIn sports make FSC look professional.
