A perfectly good winning goal ruled out in the final minute of stoppage time by an inept linesman.
I give up! frown

didnt see your game kev but the chelsea v united game was a referee-ruined fiasco.

Two very harsh Chelsea sending offs by clattenburg was quite cruel given they had fought back from 2-0 down to 2-2 and a very dodgy offside winning goal for united.
Clattenburg couldnt have been more biased if he'd scored one of united's goals.

Such a shame again when one of the biggest games of the season is decided by the refs dodgy decisions. The Torrres second yellow for diving when he had been clipped was particularly unfair.

My mob were rubbish yesterday. Didnt play like Sam's West Ham - played more like old West Ham. When we're bad, we are terrible.

I think the first sending off was justified - but Torres being sent off was just risible. The offside winner is down to the assistant ref but Clattenburg is responsible for his own language, and Chelsea's complaint about that is going to run and run.

As for Liverpool's winning goal being disallowed, it was only Suarez. He was probably penalised for attempted offside.

And finally. turning to my lot, the least said, the better. That's what heppens when you play Dave Norris in midfield!

Arsenal 4 nil down and recover to win 7-5 in last nights thrilling drama.
Leeds and Bradford also march on.
Man U and Chelsea recommence battle tonight without Mr Battenburg wink

My preferred draw for the quarter-finals - Leeds v Bradford, and Arsenal v Man U or Chelsea. History suggests something else...

Yes... so it's Leeds v Chelsea. Takes me back to the battles we had in 1970. Eddie Gray was the most talented player in the UK at the time and the only way Chelsea could beat Leeds in the FA Cup final replay was by kicking him out of the game.

Here's a reminder of Eddie's brilliance - if George Best had scored this, they'd STILL be showing it in the opening titles to Match of the Day.

The perfect day today, football-wise.
My team (Liverpool) won 3-0 while all the teams I don't like lost (Man U, Everton, Chelsea).
It's been awhile since we got beat, although we have been drawing too many and have gone from being a one-man team (Gerrard) to a one-man team (Suarez). He might not be the most popular player to the opposing (or neutral) fan, but to have him IN your team, he's like The Messiah! Sublime skill. Cheeky monkey-like persona.
I'm feeling so happy and charitable, I'm gonna cheer on West Ham for Bill tomorrow, so they go 5th and knock Everton down another place! smile

Clearly didnt work enough, kev!!
Coulda told you what would happen.
It's stoke, the out-and-out thugs.
Hate Stoke and their deliberate fouling.
And referee Chris Foy, who let them kick lumps out of us the last time we played them in the Cup.
This was when two of their players grabbed a West Ham player each in the wall for a free-kick and wrestled them to the ground - creating a gap through which they scored.
No one seemed to think it was strange that two players in a wall bafflingly threw themselves to the floor when they should have been making a wall?

And last Monday at a corner we see them not content with jockeying and muscling like everyone else does but facing a player down - a-la American football - and making no disguise about grabbing them head-on so they cant get past.
Unbelievable.
Im not sure what's worse - Pulis and Stoke for resorting to dirty tactics or the people who come on to phone-ins and say they admire them for the 'way they play!'

Expect all three english teams to win tonight - Liverpool Spurs and Newcastle.
Probably wrong!

Liverpool 2 - 2 Young Boys

Newcastle 1 - 1 Maritimo

Lazio 0 - 0 Tottenham

Im sure you meant to say you expected all three English teams to draw, Bill!!

Ouch! The trouble with the Europa league is you never know what teams they will put out.
If its the usual first team, they should have the edge a lot of the time. If they make 4 changes and play all the squad players, then it can catch you out.

That and the fact my predictions are shit.
Gave up betting, cost me too much!

Tottenham will likely bounce back tomorrow - at home to the Hammers.

A lot of musical chairs this week in the madness that is football.

First Di Matteo sacked, then Benitez appointed at Chelsea (as per picture above), then Hughes sacked at QPR and Redknapp appointed today!

It was always on the cards that old misery guts would get the sack from QPR, someone told me he was on £3 million pounds a year! Lots on money to be made out of failure these days. I love the way, on TV football programs, that I'm invited to feel sorry for these guys. I hate Chelsea, but Di Matteo seemed a good guy. Football as they say, is a funny old game. A manager gets sacked for being useless, & a year or two later gets hired as the saviour of another club (I don't include old Harry there, saving clubs is his party piece, but he has his work cut out there, QPR waited too long before sacking Hughes).

well said cinemascope.
Funnily enough TG and I had a discussion not so long ago on this very thread about ex-man utd players now managers and how the media has its collective tongue stuck up their arse - over-rating them and over-indulging them - when nearly all of them have a shit track record that nobody seems to want to remember.

Hughes, you may remember, was in charge of man City - one of the biggest budgets in the world. Result - failure! my aunt couldve done a better job with that money to spend!
Yet they all say he's great. Didnt rip up trees at Fulham or anywhere else hes been.
Same Bruce, Ince, and especially Keane.
Playing for Ferguson seems to be enough to con Chairmen everywhere into giving them chance after chance and no one wants to know that theyre shit.

Indeed we did. Mark Hughes was an indifferent manager, a scorer of some great goals and an appalling cheat of a player. He should take on a League One or Two team and learn the job from scratch in front of 4,000 fans in some footballing backwater like Brentford, Gillingham or Scunthorpe. Only don't make him a pundit - I prefer those ones who know more about football than I do.

In other news, Fergie Time has been established! Some statistician has taken the last three seasons and worked out the amount of time between the lengths of injury time played when the top teams are winning and when they're losing. Surprise surprise, the longest differential belongs to Man U, with a big gap to the next longest (Liverpool, Kev!)

And the best news of all - the Mighty Whites won today for the first time in weeks.

saw off the league leaders no less.

And I see Fulham are the latest recipients to be on the receiving end of Stoke's thuggery.
manager Jol called them a rugby team.

West Ham Chelsea.
Crap first half, 1-0, looked like it would 3,
Played much better in the second half. At 2-1 thought Chelsea would rally and come strong but heads went down and they faded last 15mins. Looks like the fans are not the only ones upset at Chelsea at the moment. Funny, they boo Rafa but not Abramovitch. Nah, because he might shut his wallet.

And Torres missed a sitting duck header from close range at the end!

And more booing at Arsenal today!!

Yep - a good day's football, with Leeds now having won three games in a row, and further squirming for Wenger. The only fly in the ointment was Man U scraping an away win at Reading with City having drawn.

so big Chelsea win today then!!!
Torres finally scores!

TG - what happened at Derby?

Big day for the Hammers tomorrow. Shocking record against Liverpool however, they have their goal-scorer Suarez banned so could give us a slightly better chance of something from the game.

The down side to this is Andy Caroll is still injured and unable to play anyway (as he is on loan from liverpool) so that means Carlton Blancmange starts up front again. Groan.
He did have a decent game by his standards last week - nothing special mind, just better then his usual level. If we can somehow get him mad and angry, he might manage to not be muscled off the ball all afternoon by Agger and co.
