Good for the competition that we'll get two massive semis + final.

Been too much Wigan, Hull, Palace etc. last couple of years. Last real big FA Cup final we had was 2007 Chelsea - Man Utd.

Kane injured :(

Hope it's not as bad as his last ankle injury.

6-0, a nice comfortable win over a woeful Millwall side. Glad to see Son score a hat-trick, and Janssen on the scoresheet. I hope Kane isn't as bad as initially feared.

Semi-finals are looking potentially tasty:

City
Arsenal
Spurs
Chelsea or United

Final fours don't get much better than that.

According to some journos Millwall fans were going after Son all game chanting racist stuff like "DVD" and "he's selling three for a fiver".

Really a shame stuff like that happens. Few clubs in UK do as much for their local community as Millwall.

Not that it makes it any better, but by Millwall standards that's actually pretty tame. Their club has a terrible reputation thanks to a sizable number of awful bastards within their fanbase. Unsurprisingly there were a few scuffles outside the ground too.

Smashing Millwall as our final FA Cup game at the Lane is a worthy sendoff.

Against Leicester it was the usual "Town full of Pakis" etc...

There are still a lot of despicable scum attracted to football matches but England is far from the worst these days.

Hopefully Kane will be back but we've played them well twice this season. I'd say it's something like 30/70 in Chelsea's favour without Kane.

I think what you said about City playing on a bigger pitch is very valid so I'm glad we didn't draw them. I'd give us more chance against them in a final for some reason.

Is it just me who is too nostalgic or was it better when the FA Cup semi finals were being played at Villa Park and Old Trafford? I know Wembley is expensive and they have to use it but one of the main reasons why the FA Cup Final isnt as special as it once was is definitely because they also play semis at Wembley now.

I agree. We have plenty of stadiums that could accomodate FA Cup semis, even with all the matches that are being played today.

Pretty sweet weekend of footy coming up. These FA Cup semis, El Clasico, Old Firm derby, PSV vs. Ajax, etc.

Ludicrous tactics by Poch to play Son fullback. He has no defensive qualities whatsoever.

God I hate Chelsea

Offer nothing and get bailed out with two stupid fouls

Again, why the hell is Son playing wingback? It's insane.
