3rd Round Shocks

Oldham, Coventry and Sheffield United beat Premiership Everton, Blackburn and Bolton in the 3rd round of the FA Cup a the weekend. Havant and Waterlooville, in the 2rd round for the first time drew at Swansea. There were loads of shock draws too so we;ll have to wait for the replays to see if there are any more shocks.

I always like this weekend for the football but this time it was extra special as I watched the recently appalling Huddersfield Town beat Premiership side Birmingham City 2-1. It wasn't an undeserved victory and Birmingham played awful while we played how we should play every week - with fight and resilience. It was a good team effort with Andy Holdsworth and goalscorers Luke Beckett and Chris Brandon playing especially well. I'm in Vegas for the 4th round so am less disappointed than most fans that we have been drawn to play at Oldham (who are one place below us in the league and beat Everton in round 3) in the next round! Hopefully we'll beat them and get a big home tie in the 5th round when i'm back.
