It was arguably the biggest FA Cup shock of all time as Bradford bounced back from being 2-0 down against Stamford Bridge to defeat Chelsea 4-2 in an unbelievable match. On top of that, Cambridge United held a full-strength Manchester United team to a 0-0 draw, Middlesbrough knocked out Premier League champions Manchester City, Blackburn beat Swansea, Southampton were surprised to Crystal Palace, and that’s just the beginning of a weekend where 10 Premier League clubs were knocked out of the tournament.
Plus, there’s a special interview with Phil Whelans from the STOP! Hammer Time podcast about West Ham United, what it’s like being a Hammers supporter, his impersonation of Sam Allardyce and his opinions about the move to the Olympic Stadium.
Plus don’t forget to interact with the pod using hashtag #WSTPod on Twitter.
