The Best Day of the Season!

Good early morning, chaps! Ah - the FA Cup Third Round - can you smell it in the air. Despite the antics of the FA, television companies and Premiership managers, it's still the best day of the season. The romance of the Cup is still very much alive here in the Cottage. I'm all set to enjoy a full morning of FA Cup action, starting with Wycombe v. Villa at 7:30am EST. That's followed by the bulk of the fixtures at 10am, including the all-Premiership clash of Arsenal v. Sunderland. And then we end the day with United vs. the Evil Blades at 12:30pm. Join me for all the fun here on the blog, won't you?

Good morning, chaps! We start this very early morning with the fixture with the biggest possibility of a major upset: Premiership strugglers Villa visiting high flying L2 side Wycombe Wanderers. A lot of pundits are predicting an early exit for the Villans. It's certainly the last stand for Villa manager Remi Garde who's lost just about every match he's been in charge for.

I've gotten so used to the brilliant NBC Sports coverage, that it's a shock going back to Fox. A bit like riding a moped after driving a Merc for several years. It's all still here - the canned preview shows, the ad breaks in the middle of everything, Rob Stone. Bloody hell - will they never learn?

Villa make six changes to the starting XI swatted aside at Sunderland last week. Most notably, Mark Bunn takes over from Brad Guzan in goal, Ashley Westwood returns from suspension, and Scott Sinclair injects a bit of pace and dynamism to proceedings. Incidentally, the entire team were serenaded by their own fans as they traipsed off the coach.

"You’re not fit to wear the shiiii-iiiiiii-iiiiirt"

Oh dear.

Despite all the giant-killing hype before this match, these clubs are still separated by 54 spots in the pecking order. This could just as easily be Villa's springboard toward Premiership survival. Who knows? It's the magic of the Cup!

Good morning Bob. I will be around for another twenty minutes. Perhaps Vanilla Soft Serve will get their first win with Remy Garde as manager.

7:37 AM

I think Wycombe is where London Central is located . Is that correct? I believe that I remember the matches being played around that town.

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's a shorter journey than I expected for Villa. Just a century of miles.

7:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The players now lining up in the make-shift tunnel at Adams Park:

Wycombe Wanderers: Lynch, McCarthy, Stewart, Pierre, Jacobson, Harriman, Bloomfield, O’Nien, Wood, Thompson, Amadi-Holloway.
Subs: Jombati, McGinn, Richardson, Kretzschmar, Rowe, Ugwu, Udumaga.

Aston Villa: Bunn, Okore, Clark, Richards, Richardson, Bacuna, Gana, Westwood, Sinclair, Gil, Gestede.
Subs: Guzan, Lescott, Veretout, Ayew, Kozak, Lyden, Cissokho.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland).

Theses teams last met in the League Cup in 2005. Villa were 3-1 down at the half and came back to win 8-3.

7:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - great to have you on board early doors. How long is your trip today? As short as Villa's?

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Remy Garde is putting out a decent lineup, not the reserve team that Klopp put out yesterday.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ta, Bob. My trip is much shorter. About 25 miles and all rural travel.

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Micah Richards has been hitting back at the media criticism of Villa's back four, but they have been tragic this season.

7:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not bad, mate. Not bad.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's a small stadium, but the pitch is in decent condition and more modern looking than Exeter's

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wycombe's manager is a former Villa player?

7:46 AM

Dan O'Hagan and Ray Houghton on the mics this morning.

They're off!

Odd camera angle for the match - it looks as if the camera is perched on a tower flat behind the main stand.

Micah Richards wins an early Villa corner

7:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Early Corner chance for Villa. Bit of panic in the area but it's eventually gathered by Lynch.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Head tennis of the corner from Gil and the keeper eventually catches it.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Villa will need to be more than avant garde to win this match.

7:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The last meeting between these teams sounded like a crazy match

7:49 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Holloway bundles his way through Kieran Clark there. He seems very direct. First corner for Wycombe. What's their nickname, mate?

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Holloway got behind the Villa defense , who scrambled to clear then win a corner off of Kieran Richardson

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A scramble in the box and Thompson stabs wide.

7:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - decent chance there. Mad scramble in the box and Thompson had a chance to toe poke it home. Wide.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry mate. I'm not familiar with Wycombe trivia.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Useless pass from Scott Sinclair.Very avant garde.

7:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No worries, mate - I just Wiki-ed it. They're the "Chairboys," whatever that means.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Better pass from Sinclair as Wycombe clear from their goal mouth

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess they subs were chair warmers instead of bench warmers in the day. Well in, mate

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is pacing around nervously. He will not get any sympathy from the Gooner.

7:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This could easily be 1-1 already. A highly entertaining start, with both teams looking up for the battle.

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wycombe is higher up the table than Exeter, but Villa haven't put out a youth team. A win by the Chair Boys would be a giant killing.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are you ready for Villa to visit ER next season? It could be a tasty fixture.

7:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I was quite impressed by Exeter. They didn't just lump it at the big boys. They got the ball down and played it about well. They should have won but probably a draw and a big pay day at Anfield suited them.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm off to the meet. I will be around for the matches tomorrow. It was great chatting , albeit it briefly. Cheers mate.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sure. I don't think there has ever been any special animosity between the sides. And they don't have any of our old boys any more now that Delph has left.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cheerio, mate - best of luck to you and your kids.

8:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Gueye has a dig from 25 yards down the inside-left channel. The shot’s deflected to Richardson, who is in the box in acres, but hesitates and instead of shooting opts to dink a cross towards Gestede. Lynch flaps a little when intercepting, and the ball’s only half cleared to Westwood, who looks for the top right from 20 yards, but doesn’t keep his shot down. It’s not the highest quality fare, but it is good fun.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Gil sways and sashays down the right, reaches the byline, and threads a rather good pass back to Gueye on the edge of the box. Gueye has time to shoot, but opts to take a touch to the right and is hounded out of it.

8:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Micah Richards opens the scoring at Adams Park with a simple pass into the back of the net after some nice build up.

8:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And now Richards is down needing treatment. He's waving at the bench, looks like he may have to go off.

8:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The away supporters are singing a wry version of "Que Sera" now.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Richards has limped back on. He'll continue for the time being.

8:10 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great ball in from the corner for Wycombe and Bunn does so well to punch it clear. Guzan may be in trouble if Bunn keeps this up.

8:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Half an hour in and Villa are bossing this match.

8:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The impetus has gone out of this one since Richards scored. We need a Wycombe goal to bring this one back to life.

8:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Off for a snuggle with the missus. I'll be back for the second half.

8:21 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm back for the beginning of the second half and Wycombe have a penalty!

8:52 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Joe Jacobson steps up and....scores!

Wycombe are level under somewhat dodgy circumstances. But Westwood can only have himself to blame for that one. He made the ref make a decision.

1-1!

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That is precisely what this tie needed. Now what?

8:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Wycombe really have their tails up now. Nearly a second goal there. Cleared off the line.

Rudy Gestede does not impress me one bit - he's a statue.

9:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A striker swap now for Wycombe. And Villa are doing a double change. Ayew for Sinclair.

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And Veretout for Gil. Strange one there. Gil has probably been Villa's best player today.
