    Looking forward to the Stoke V Man City game...live on ITV as well, so that's all great stuff. Apparently the stadium had a hell of a lot of snow on it as well...

    Watching my first ever Africa Cup of Nations match (Algeria v Togo). It's not edge-of-your-seat stuff, but it is just a group game. As it stands Algeria are going out, so maybe they'll step things up in the second half. I'll try and make a habit of tuning in to the televised matches.

    Man Utd are, from what I've read, destroying a very poor Fulham side in the FA Cup. 4-0 with 20 minutes left to play.

    I'm sat three feet from one.

    Also, no-one yet mentioned the first non-league team beating a Premier Legaue side for the first time since 1989?

    Yeah, what a game for Luton. Remember reading an article in FourFourTwo about all the financial stuff and points deductions they'd been going though and felt really sorry for the fans, so great they can enjoy a moment like this.

    Had hoped that would be enough giant killing for one round, but Brentford have just given us a right scare. Thought the game against Swansea was the poorest I'd seen us play this season, but this topped that by a mile. First half in particular was woeful. Doesn't take a genius to work out a short passing game wasn't going to work on that pitch, but like so many times this season we just didn't seem to have a plan B. Fair play to Brentford though, they looked a lot more up for it than we did and definitely deserve the replay. Getting a bit worried about fixture congestion now though, especially given the size of the squad at the moment. Currently got 15 fit outfield players, and that includes the likes of Marin, Benayon and Ferriera, so not a lot of room for rotation.

    I know someone from Luton and remember him being annoyed by their points deduction, which was more than the other clubs in administration received... Then they've failed in about 3 consecutive playoff finals.

    Maybe finally, they'll stop going on about how we don't see enough giant-killings is the cup/cups now. It was beginning to grate.

    Currently: Leeds 2-1 Tottenham.

    Oh just checked to see Suarez equalise and I'm laughing at Spurs losing to Leeds and Brentford almost beating Chelsea.

    Statisticians Opta on Twitter: "3 - This is the first time Liverpool have conceded 3+ FA Cup goals to a team outside the top two divisions since 1956 (3-3 v S****horpe). Stun."

    And that's game over. Best footballing week I can remember...

Morocco can't qualify, they bloody can't, Cape Verde should qualify, Cape Verde must qualify, Cape Verde deserve it, you do not, you cannot score against Angola, you can't even beat Angola, Cape Verde could if their defenders didn't backstab them come on Cape Verde, come on my little African beauties.

    Arsenal's best chance to end their trophy drought by far in the FA Cup. Saw the late equaliser by South Africa but I felt Morocco deserved to win it. Good to see the hosts progress though.

    Possibly one of the best weekends of football ever. Arsenal, MK Dons and Luton through whilst the Spuds, Aston Villa, QPR AND Liverpool losing, as well as Cape Verde qualifying from the AFCON? Great stuff.

    Galatasaray have announced the signing of Drogba on an 18 month contract after he was supposed to off rejected a move to return to Chelsea. Looks like they are planning big now that they also got Sneijer and are supposed to be looking to get Kolo Toure. Wouldn't like to be Schalke right about now.

    Yeah espeically since Spurs just pushed forward the signing of Lewis Holtby before the deadline ends this Thursday. Not good for Schalke at all.

    Yeah Schalke well really have a game on their hands now. Also Mario Balotelli is supposed to being sold to AC Milan in a Ł19.5 million deal. If true it will be sad seeing him leave the premier league he was such good entertainment.

    Can't be surprised to see him leaving after how unpredictable, unreliable and unruly he's been at City...

    On his day, an amazing player though, but sadly he needs to chnage his attitude.

    Hoping for a win tonight vs. Wigan. Stop the slide... Owen to score? Crouch to leave?

    It seems virtually confirmed...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21251291

    And he's neither named as a starter nor a substitute...
