Klopp out ?


They've got some big games coming up, I'm sure they'll bounce back, especially when Mane returns.

Definitely worrying home form given how much of a fortress Anfield traditionally is.

Liverpool: Going out of the cup at home to Wolves is the most embarrassing cup upset

I'm a Canadian Citizen and was born in Toronto so I dont have a connection to Somalia. The ban doesn't apply to me but it is definitely scary that this is just the start. this is unrelated to the Fa cup though. so I'll just leave it at that

Burnley eliminated by non-league Lincoln City. :lol:

Barton should have been off for the stamp if not before then.

Still justice for Lincoln in the end.

Hoping for an LCFC v LCFC final.

That was a great game of football. That's what the FA Cup's all about.

Fair play to the Imps, a very sturdy performance. They look League One level at least.

Things are getting worse for Leicester. Knocked out by the 10 men of Millwall. It wouldn't be terribly shocking (especially compared to Burnley's exit), but considering current form it's another big blow for their morale.

I dunno if anybody's watching this Sutton vs. Arsenal match. Such a weird atmosphere to have Arsenal play in a ground like this.

FA Cup quarterfinals. ManCity first team through to the SF.

Good luck beating Guardiola on Wembley's massive pitch. Ask Sir Alex Ferguson how it feels to play against a Guardiola team on that 105m x 68m pitch.
