FA Cup Round 2, League Cup Quarter Finals

On Wednesday night Manchester United beat Arsenal thanks to a goal after 18.5 seconds. I tuned in to see the replays of the goal ending after 1 minute 4 seconds. Will I ever learn to watch the start of matches? Liverpool also went through after Fredi Kanoute lost the match for Spurs giving away a 117th minute penalty and then missing his penalty in the shoot-out. Chelsea vs Man Utd looks a mouthwatering semi-final prospect while Liverpool should overcome Watford.

I went to The Shay to watch Halifax Town play Chester City in the second round of the FA Cup today.Halifax were the better side for most of the game and had more chances than Chester but still lost 3-1. A good effort though against a side from the league above. Yeading are the lowest placed team to reach the third round. Anyone know where this is? It'd be nice if they were drawn against a Premiership side or Reading just to confuse commentators.

I've had another quiet weekend in (apart from football) as i've not been feeling too well recently. Superb night of TV tonight. Record Of The Year was good and the result very close. Katie Melua was a surprise 5th, Will Young 4th, Anastacia in a close 3rd, then Mcfly in 2nd with Busted winning. I bought their new CD this week but preferred Mcfly. I'm not really that bothered though so I didn't vote. Unlike in X Factor where I did vote for G4 as they are different and add a bit of class to the competition so i'm glad that they are throught to next week's final. I saw a bit of that dancing thing on BBC1 too. Julian Clary has only got through for comedy value which is a bit harsh but funny!

Anyway i'm waffling so i'll get settled down for a 2 hour long Match Of The Day now.

this is the first blog i have seen, that has someone who actually knows what they are talking about when it comes to soccer (excuse me, football). I don't talk to much about soccer on my blog, so i don't recommend checking it out, but i'll be visiting yours again with comments i'm sure.
