  1. Goodbye!

    Manchester City

    Here's a young man who will be desperate to watch as many highlights of his side's FA Cup game as possible.

    Teenage Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho was the star of today's 12 FA Cup fifth-round ties, scoring a hat-trick against Aston Villa.

    No-one managed to cause a seismic shock - maybe Carlisle or MK Dons can tomorrow? Join us then!

  2. Catch up on the cup

    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    Things are opening up a little bit at Anfield, with about 30 minutes left for one of the sides to bag a place in the FA Cup fifth round draw at the first attempt.

    Find out whether it will be Liverpool or West Ham right here. It's better than Saturday night telly anyway.

  6. I watched my side grow - Westley

    West Brom 2-2 Peterborough


    Graham Westley is a happy man tonight. So happy that he'll be treating the family to a bucket meal (super-size obviously) at their local fried chicken establishment tonight.

    And why not? His plucky League One side claimed a memorable draw at Premier League hosts West Brom - after twice trailing.

    "The lads showed some great composure and some great maturity. I visibly watched them grow this afternoon and I am very pleased," he said. 

    "I think over the 90 minutes, the young players will have gained a lot of experience and they showed that important ingredient, desire."


    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    We're rolling again at Anfield where Liverpool's Under 21...sorry...senior side take on West Ham.

    Still just the one shot on target, but the Hammers must surely feel they should just have been given a penalty. 

    If Steven Caulker has not just handled the ball in his own box then I'm a Nepalese mountain guide in my spare time. (Clue: I'm not.)

  8. Should he stay or should he go?

    West Brom 2-2 Peterborough

    Saido Berahino

    Saido Berahino was the central figure in one of the summer's great transfer tales, which ended in him being told by West Brom that he wasn't allowed to go to Spurs.

    The England Under-21 striker threatened to never play for Albion again and, after struggling to find form, he barely has.

    "He's a good player and he can score," says Albion boss Tony Pulis. "The problem we've got is his fitness is not what it should be. But put him in front of goal and he'll score.

    "Will those be his last goals for the club? We'll see. That's the chairman's decision."

  9. 'Albion architects of own demise'

    West Brom 2-2 Peterborough

    West Brom manager Tony Pulis has been moaning about his side's workload recently, so he is less than happy about being taken to a replay by Peterborough.

    The Premier League side led twice through Saido Berahino before being pegged back by the League One visitors.

    "It's going to be four games in the first two rounds of the FA Cup - it's a lot of games for us. But at least we're still in the draw," says the Welshman.

    "It was our demise today, when you're leading twice to concede the goals we did was pretty poor."

  11. 'Bolton were too passive'

    Bolton 1-2 Leeds

    Bolton v Leeds

    You spend all week working on tactical masterplans, prepare your team accordingly and then they don't follow the instructions. If Bolton boss Neil Lennon had more hair then he would be tearing it out.

    “We were way too passive in the first half,” said the ex-Celtic manager, whose side were 2-0 down to Leeds at half-time before pulling a late goal back.

    "That wasn’t the way we sent the team out to play. You can’t give teams a two-goal lead and expect to get back into the game.

    “At times, particularly in the first half, it appeared as if there wasn’t enough leadership. We stood off Leeds far too much."

  13. Post update

    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    Wondering why we haven't mentioned the Liverpool v West Ham tie for a while? Because there is nothing happening. Just the one shot on target so far. Watching a coat of emulsion dry on your living room is arguably better.

    But our live text commentary of this snoozefest is much better than staring at a wall. Promise.

    West Brom 2-2 Peterborough

    And the award for 'Worst Acting Performance' goes to....*cue drum roll*....Graham Westley! The Peterborough manager fancied trying his hand at a bit of comedy on the touchline earlier...just watch the clip below. Please.

  15. 'Watford didn't deserve win'

    Nottingham Forest 0-1 Watford

    Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman believes his side deserved more from their home FA Cup defeat by Premier League side Watford.

    "Second half we got at them and showed we could win this tie," said the Scot.

    "We moved up a gear, had some exciting moments and created enough chances to win the game but half a chance and Watford have got the winner.

    "Did they deserve it? No they didn’t. But as long as I can see commitment in our performances we’ll keep on marching forward.”

  17. Shrews produce Mellon twister

    Shrewsbury 3-2 Sheff Wed


    Shrewsbury manager Micky Mellon: "To have this club involved in games like this and challenging with Sheffield Wednesday to get into the fifth round of the cup is where we should be.

    "We were every bit as good in that second half as we have been poor in other games. We worked very hard on our game plan on the training pitch and all the players stuck to it.

    "People are asking for attacking football I cannot do any more than my right-back getting on the end of a cross in the 97th minute!"

  18. Goal makes Grimmer grin

    Shrewsbury 3-2 Sheff Wed


    Shrewsbury matchwinner Jack Grimmer was understandably happy after he helped the League One strugglers beat their Championship visitors Sheffield Wednesday.

    "I don't think there is a bigger smile in the whole of the UK tonight! Especially because I don't score very often," says the on-loan Fulham defender, who has only ever netted one other career goal.

    "To score a 96th-minute winner to get us through to the fifth round of the FA Cup is something really special."

  19. Barca leading La Liga race

    Barcelona 2-1 Atletico


    Can anyone stop Barcelona this season? Doesn't look like it.

    Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez scored as Barca came from behind to beat nine-man Atletico Madrid and go three points clear at the top of the Spanish top-flight.

    Atletico, who started the day level with the defending champions, had Filipe Luis and Diego Godin sent off for bad challenges.
