Corner Kicks: The Ghost of Brian Clough lives

In England this is a magical weekend instead of playing in their respective leagues all of the teams get together for the most famous knock out competition in the world the FA Cup. During this weekend some of the EPL teams will fall to teams in lower divisions and that is no different this weekend.
Nottingham Forest, who under the late Brian Clough (pictured) won everything in Europe during the lasts 70's and early 80’s and are now in the Division one, pulled off one of the upsets of the day defeating EPL relegation favorites Charlton.
The other shock of the weekend game when fellow league one side Swansea defeated EPL team Sheffield United.
Spurs, Manchester City, Newcastle, Middleborough and Fulham all face replays against lower division sides in the next ten days.
Meanwhile in the glamour tie of the third round, Arsenal defeated Cup holders Liverpool at Anfield.
