Bring on the 5th Round!

Morning, chaps - I couldn't be more excited about the day's matches. We get started in a few minutes with the holders Arsenal against Hull. Then at 10am, my eyes will be on Watford v. Leeds, but there is also Reading v. WBA. We finish up at 12:15 with Bournemouth v. Everton. Join me for all the Cup banter here on the LOB.

Oh dear - it's definitely the B-Team on Fox this morning, with some Scots git compering alongside Warren Barton and Thomas Hitzelsperger. Why?

7:32 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

As expected, both sides are fielding slightly weakened first elevens this afternoon. Arsenal have Barca on Tuesday; what's Hull's excuse?

Arsenal (4-2-3-1) Ospina; Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Flamini, Elneny, Campbell, Iwobi, Welbeck, Walcott.

Subs: Macey, Bellerin, Monreal, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis, Giroud.

Hull City (3-5-2) Jakupovic; Davies, Maguire, Bruce; Taylor, Elmohamady, Meyler, Maloney, Tymon; Powell, Diomande.

Subs: Kuciak, Huddlestone, Hernandez, Diame, Aluko, Robertson, Odubajo

Good morning , mate. I'm here to join you for the Fifth Round of the Cup. I'm as confused as you regarding Fox's choice of supposed analysts.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

With a few exceptions, those are decent lineups considering the Gunners face Barca on Tuesday

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The majority of Championship teams are in league action where Evil Cardiff vs the Seagulls kicked off a few minutes ago

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

Teams coming out at the Emirates now...

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

Welcome, MUR - thanks for joining me. How's your week been?

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners and Tigers are meeting for the third consecutive season. The Gunners came from tow down to win in the final; two years ago and won 2-0 at the EM in the Third Round last year. I guess all roads to the trophy go through Brucey's lads.

7:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks Bob.I'm glad to have the pleasure of your company. It's been a stressful week other than my day off. How was your week?

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from the EM

7:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Tony Jones and Gary O'Reilly on the mic today - never even heard of 'em. Fox are having a laugh today!

7:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I've heard of Gary O'Reilly . I think he played for the SPuds during our blackout years.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YIKES! Evil Cardiff are two up vs the Seagulls inside twenty minutes.

7:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Flamini wins a corner off a nice slide rules pass from El Neny.

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save from Jakupovic from El Neny off a corner from the training ground

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

Elneny has started as if he's on fire. Could easily have been a penalty there with a handball from Wee Brucie.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Theo wins a corner off of Meyler.

7:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A flat corner from Campbell is cleared away

7:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Did you notice that I had activity on the LOB last night?

7:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Who do you think are favorites for the Cup now? My money is on Chelski this season.

7:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I did see that and I responded. I really appreciate your exhaustive explanation of the rules for me.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great turn and cross from Theo , but Wellie heads straight to Jakupovic despite having a free header in the six yard box. I'm familiar with that

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Glad to help. It is an unusual case. I did a decent jobs on the regional accents, which was difficult because some of them are very similar.

7:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

All Arsenal pressure so far; a rear guard action from Hull.

7:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I caN HEAR bRUCEY SHOUTING IN HIS TECHNINCAL AREA.

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

Oh - great move there from Arsenal, from Elneny to Chambers with a slide rule pass to Theo. Made the keeper work.

8:01 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - it's shooting practice for the Gunners. Iwobi with a bender that just doesn't bend enough into the corner.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by Iwobe after the corner was cleared

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's like a training session

8:02 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'd be shouting too; his side is playing far too deep. Whenever the ball is cleared out, it just comes back again. There's no holding play at all going on for the Tigers.

8:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Evil Cardiff is three up vs the Seagulls just over half hour into the match

8:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Now I see why they were relegated last season.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wellie leads a counter and finds Theo, but it's cleared away

8:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

But they're top of the pops in the Championship. They should be better than this!

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gary O'Reilly has been spying in on Bob's remarks about the Tigers playing too deep. No wonder why he's on Fox. He needs to be more alert.

8:06 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's true. It could be the match tactics. I imagine they are more attack minded in league matches.

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

Ever heard of Gary O'Reilly before? Presumably he was a player at some point.

8:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I read that the FA may do away with replays starting next season. That would be absolutely horrible. Arsene is against it as I'm sure are all LOBers

8:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. He played for the Spuds and I think Watford from the mid 80s to the early naughties.

8:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Half way through the first half; Hull have stymied the Gunners so far.

8:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will the Gunners play like the Tigers when they face Barca?

8:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Another sweeping move is snuffed out.

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great near post save by Jakupovic from Theo off a pass from Chambers

8:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Young Brucey was turned too easily.,

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Probably - I can't see them having any possession at all against Barca.

8:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First real chance for Hull. Maguire went down a bit too easily and Mike Dean booked him for simulation. There was some contact but he went too ground too easily.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Maguire is booked for diving off a challenge from Campbell. He was looking for a penalty on a rare attack off a free kick.

8:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He was signed from a Not Very Big Club , so I'm not surprised with that disgraceful behavior.

8:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And now it's Sean Maloney into the book for a rugged one on Theo.

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Sean Maloney is booked for a foul from behind on Theo.

8:18 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They teach that kind of thing in Sheffield, don't they?

8:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another free kick for the Tigers> Kos heads in the free kick whipped in by Sean Maloney

8:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Maguire heads wide from the Tigers first corner of the match

8:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I hear they do teach those things in the Steel City. Is that fact or fiction?

8:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Now Wellie goes down in the box. Not a card for diving there. How's that for consistency from Jimmy Dean?

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mick Phelan and Stephen Clemence assisting Brucey

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kos is booked for a foul on Diamande on a Tigers break.

8:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Koz gets a yellow for a cynical foul on Diamonde. Close to a red as he was nearly the last man back.

8:26 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

After having frustrated Arsenal for forty minutes, Hull are closely coming into this match. They're best chance is on set pieces.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just saw that the Hornets vs the Whites is on FS Plus , so we would need to watch that on a link. Poor by Fox as Pulis's boring side at the Reading Railroad surely is not a better match.

8:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, mate. Gooners will be feeling frustrated at the half.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into stoppage time at the EM . One minute

8:30 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the half as the Tigers have successfully frustrated the Gunners

8:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's half-time, then. No joy yet for the home side. Hull have set about their task doggedly.

0-0 at HT.

8:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Evil Cardiff are three up vs the Seagulls at the half.

8:32 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Hey Boys
I have been up and about for the first half but not being able to watch much of the match so far.
Hull will be pleased to be nil nil but they need to get forward more

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning UWS. Great to have you on board

8:43 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

As for the penalty discussion from the other post,
It is legal if the man stays outside of the box before the kick. Not even sure if the ball needs to go forward


I HATE IT BY THE WAY

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The next two matches are on FS 2 as are both televised matches tomorrow.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. A penalty kick does need to go forward. I remember that being discussed during a refereeing course.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from the EM.

8:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

The Seagulls get a goal back but still behind 3-1 after an awful opening 30 minutes in Cardiff

Second half underway at the Em in the Em FA Cup

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gooners will not be pleased that Jimmy Dean did not award the Gunners a penalty for hand ball on Young Brucey.

8:47 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Fox have their priority on the Daytona 500

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great reflex save by Jakupovic from Theo off some nice one touch passing from the Gunners

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're back on at the Em and Arsenal are right at it, Theo pulling a great save out of Jakupovic.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pathetic Fox.

8:48 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS - how are you mate?

8:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not sure when these replays will happen. League games will have to e cancelled
This midweek is CL matches and no other match anywhere can be played... or at least televised. A Scottish Cup tie played midweek but had no tv there.
Next week is a full slate of matches
The Arse host the Swans


Next weekend is the League Cup Final...Liverpool host City three days later

8:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Thank you for that comment, UWS. Even if it's legal - and I think Suarez is a mile inside the box - I hate it, too. I'd like to ban the Panenka, the stutter step ones and anything but just step up and hit a penalty like a normal person.

8:50 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'm bummed... I have to go back to work in two days after a week off... HORRIBLE FEELING

Fatty Huddlestone about to be unleashed by Brucie.

8:51 AM

You will be fine, UWS. The rest will give you a chance to recharge your battery.

8:52 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I agree with you 100% except as the ball is kicked Suarez was not in the box... well, it was really close. It is the same as Suarez netting the rebound

8:52 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not enough.. my little darlings have drained everything out of me. They don't care, they are rude, they are disrespectful and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Look again - he's a mile inside but he's anticipating what Messi going to do. That's why he's first to the ball.

8:53 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Arsenal going for three in a row
Has it ever been done?

Research time

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Gunners have a shot deflected for a corner. El Neny has a shot headed out. Was that a penalty as Meyhler appeared to trip Chambers

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

Sounds like the parents need sorting out.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yes. It was last done by Blackburn in the 1880s.

8:55 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great save by Jakupovic from Campbell's free kick.

8:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Wanders won in 1876, 1877 and 1888
Blackburn Rovers won in 1884, 85 and 86

That's it

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Jakupovic turns a swerving free kick on to the post then the rebound is well over.

8:55 AM

Fatty is on for Ryan Taylor and sixteen year old Josh Tymon can be proud of a creditable performance at left back as he's replaced.

8:57 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Cardiff score a fourth

8:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This could easily go to a replay now. Not good for the Gunners. They need to push this one aside pronto.

Chambers is booked for wrestling Meyhler.

As eagle eyed UWS stated, I'm not sure when a replay would occur as both teams have midweek matches one week or another

8:58 AM

How about Wimbledon and Cardiff City?

Leeds? Not sure we've won it more than just 1972.

9:01 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

The question was from 1980

9:01 AM

We've lost a load of finals, though. 1970, 1973, etc.

Another great save from the Hull keeper

9:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ah - Jakupovic bails out Hull again. Welly thought he had scored!

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jakupovic superbly turns around a deflected long range effort from Wellie.

9:04 AM

Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud are being readied.

9:05 AM

My students are like that too. I'm always having to tell them what it means to follow and read basic directions.

If there is any type of reading, my students say... "i don't know what to do"

9:06 AM

Why did FOX pick Reading/ WBA?
Cup upset?
No difference of Watford/ Leeds except the home team being from the Champ

A photo op as elizabeth catches Fred watching the match. Is he thinking of what might have been as his team lost here in the Third Round.,

Talksport commentary for some reason is actually slightly behind in time. I have seen a goal on the TV and then saw it go in around 30 seconds later

Sone Aluko is on for Nick Powell, who never made it with United.

9:20 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I will be going for walkies after this match and be listening to the build up for Leeds on my phone
I usually get back just after kick off
Will we see a goal in the next 11 minutes

9:20 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Remedial math is not offered in Texas, so I don't have that option. I will be hosting a retirement party in three years and a burning of the mortgage party in two years, so all LOBers will need to start saving up. I expect Bob, the Gooner , and UWS present at both events.

9:22 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Did you see Powell's comment this week
Didn't even know United were playing on Thursday.
He was playing FIFA
He shouldn't really say things like that...he's still on loan
I remember his goal at Wembley for Crewe and looked like a real star... what a fall

Cheers UWS. Have fun. Both managers will want a goal because neither team needs a replay as they want to avoid fixture congestion.

Let's have a replay to serve both managers for not putting their BEST team out and try and win the game

Of course LVG hasn't helped

When did he bring him on as a striker this season when we needed a goal?

9:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. It may teach them a lesson, but Arsene will say that his players wouldn't be rested for the match vs Barca.

9:27 AM

Oh - that was the big chance for Hull. Straight at Ospina!

OH!!!! A big miss by the Ox as Giroud headed down a cross from Theo and Ox volleyed well wide.

That's another example of how poor this coverage is. It's clear that these two numpties are nowhere near the Emirates. They're watching on a monitor and reacting well after the incident. The crowd noise is too muted as well.
