Welcome to the Gurgler’s UK Football Weekly. We discuss things UK Football, and it doesn’t begin in Manchester and finish in London. We care about all four leagues and below if we have time. All your favourite stars are here too with the exception of Ariaga II. Enjoy the finest.
There’s a handful of potential upsets on offer for the punter with a keen eye for lower division teams, and one big mismatch with Manchester United visiting the only fourth division side in the cup Cambridge United.
Although the exit of the lowest ranked team in the Cup looks likely, there’s still some third division minnows left – 6 in fact, and as two of them face each other there’s a guarantee of one third tier team in the last 16.
For the record – here’s the six: Bradford City, Bristol City, Chesterfield, Rochdale, Preston, and serial cup pests Sheffield United.
There’s still plenty of EPL Teams left with only QPR suffering at the hands of lower division opposition last round, and a few losers from all EPL team matches.
It’s not all FA Cup though, there’s still fixtures to be played in the lower three tiers.
Have some results from last weekend before you forget what heppened.
