Wow the magic is back

Every year people talk about how the FA Cup has lost its luster and this year that has been farther from the case. First in the third round you had everyones favorite team in Chasetown FC, then in the fourth round you had everyones favorite pub team in Havant and Waterlooville.

The 5th round Saturday was no different as Barnsley went to the Anfield and knocked off Liverpool with an injury time winner and left Rotating Rafa hanging on by his finger nails to his job, while Manchester United showed their true class and knocked off Arsenal, 4-0.

"If I was the Liverpool chairmen I'd do the intelligent thing and sack Rafa after that awful performance. What do Liverpool fans need to realise this? It's staring them in the face."

With all of the upsets so far, this year could be the year that a lower division teams crashes the FA Cup finals party. The last team not in the EPL to be in the final was 2004 when Dennis Wise lead Millwall there. We might again have party crashers this year.
