Draw starting now
Liverpool v Everton the big one
Not at home.
Not against a non-league side.
Not too bad a tie, good historic club. Chance to see some youngsters hopefully.
Decent draw I suppose
We beat them last season in League Cup, when Xhaka scored his second screamer in few days (after his first vs. Hull).
However since then he scored only 2 more goals
VVD makes his debut for Liverpool, Everton playing a strong team as well
Shouldn't this be in Arsenal talk?
Alan Shearer just then:
'If you look at the big boys, this is probably 4th or 5th on the list of trophies you want to win, you've got PL, CL, top 4, then this.'
Thick as ****.
The FA Cup probably has extra importance for 5 of the top 6 teams considering that City pretty much have the league won.
FA Cup is important trophy. Even Carling Cup is important. Just look at the winners in recent years of this trophies.
Rooney gets away with daft tackles. That could’ve been a red.
Hey, Wenger invented that trophy.
Arsenal have been dominating the competition in recent years so it's now "fourth or fifth" priority for big clubs. Now the top four that Wenger was ways laughed at for calling trophy when were weren't winning actual silverware is suddenly of more importance than the oldest trophy in the country (no doubt this also has to do with the likes of Liverpool and Spurs now being in the top four mix after years of being mid-table, while repeatedly failing in the cup).
Of course, the FA Cup is still almost always won by the big clubs and not the small, and when someone says a team has "won the double" in England, you don't have to specify which two trophies that refers to unless the second trophy isn't the FA Cup.
Very true. Look at the team Man U have put out to play Derby. Not pulling any punches there.
May as well save everyone the time and give us the cup.
He's bitter because he got to the final twice and lost twice. Egg head. Always looks like he's shielding his eyes from the sun.
Lol, who said Chambo was playing his best football at Liverpool...
He's just doing what he normally does. Has 4 or 5 good games then makes everyone believe. Then, he goes back to being a waste of space and gets injured.
Nothing player really. To think I defended him so much. His lack of agility will always hamper him.
