Some great looking fixtures this year, i'm looking forward to it.

Of the Premier League sides I think Newcastle, Swansea, Watford, Southampton and Stoke are at big risk of going out.

I had a decent acca going....ugh what a **** performance. Can't exactly pretend it's not something to focus on..

Bournemouth & Stoke losing doesn't surprise me had a feeling out of the favourites they were most likely to see an upset, same with Brentford.

Was getting worried for Man City haha should have known it would be fine, maybe they're becoming cruel and letting others think they actually have a chance before the last 30 mins of annihilation.

Eww Stoke I never trust them haha. I don't get why some prem teams don't seem to put the effort in though, winning the FA cup is a decent result especially when you're never ever going to win the league you're in.

Think Stoke are more concerned about staying up

I saw that on Twitter :lol: doubt his manager would approve if he eats it during the season though!

Very relieved we've not got a replay, it was looking that way for a very long time.

Tbf all he had to do all game was catch a cross. He didn't earn it, he was just granted it by how utterly **** we were.

So why play a full strength team and go 4-3-3 at 1-0? We reminded the football world we existed today. Over the moon with the result and performance, rode our luck for sure but that's what you need.
