FA Cup Quarter Final Sunday!

Morning, chaps - and a happy Spring Forward Day to you all. We've got two Cup matches on tap this morning. First up is the Arse v. Watford at the Emirates. Then at noon is the big 'un between United and West Ham. At the same time there is a rubbishy Premiership match between Spurs and Villa. Join me for all the action here at the LOB.

4-2-3-1 - it's the favorite line-up of all modern managers (sigh)....

9:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning mate. Happy Spring Forward Day.

9:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree and that's what drives UWS bonkers.

Morning, MUR - how are you mate?

9:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kate has a trivia question for you this morning:

How many English managers are there in the Premiership? Name them and their clubs.

9:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And we're off from the Emirates, Arsenal in their traditional kits and Watford in a dark blue number.

9:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Morning boys
You are right David
Modern day football...bloody hell

9:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I'm on my phone instead of desktop
I don't want to be in the kitchen

Fast start from the Arse

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ake has lost his boot - having some difficulty getting it back on.

9:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning ,UWS. Happy Spring Forward Day. I'm doing well . Thanks for asking. How is everyone.

9:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, UWS - yeah, I'm fed up with the 4-2-3-1 formation. Everyone uses it and it means that you lose at least two players in the attack from the 4-4-2 formation.

9:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The 4-4-2 may be supposedly inefficient, but it's more entertaining to watch

9:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Tony Pulis WBA
Eddie Howe Bournemouth
Alan Pardew CP
Fat Sam Sunderland

Only Four!!!

9:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kate says, "Correct!" Well done, mate. It is a sad comment, isn't it.

9:38 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hate the two holding midfielder talk crap

England talk about it when their opponents are Moldova!!!

Ball in the net
Yellow flag in the air

9:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud wheels away thinking he's scored but he's flagged offside. I think he was on but the other bloke was off.

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! Np it's not. Nice through ball, but Giroud is flagged offside. He looked level in the replay. Gooner and Simon will not be pleased.

9:41 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Has Kate studied up on her shades of blue shirts of the Premier League?

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Something needs to be done to improve the quality of English managers. Otherwise, the national team will start to have foreign managers once Woy steps down

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

She should be studying the new trend of various shades of lime green away kits.

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kate is incensed that there are so few English managers in the Premiership. "It's England!" she says.

9:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I think it is fair to add
Mark Hughes and Alex Neil on the list
British managers have always been around
Shanks Busby Fergie
6/20
30%
Still sucks

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree with Kate. The FA needs to do something to have more qualified English managers. They have overlooked that

9:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice shot at Kate, mate. LOL!

By the way, update on the Man Citeh bandwagoner in Kate's class. Kate watched the League Cup Final with me and then was excited to talk about the penalty shootout with him the next day. She brought it up and....he slept through the final! She said, "It was at noon!"

9:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

If the Toon, Villa ,a nd Canaries get relegated then that will be three non English managers . If Burnley and Hull City are promoted then they will have Sean Dyche and Brucey, so that will at least increase the number to six. Baby steps.

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yikes! The modern day college student!

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just a reminder that there are two Championship matches and a Prem match as well.

9:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great slide tackle by Ake to prevent a clear opportunity for the Gunners

9:50 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Campbell might have done better there to attack that cross from Kieran Gibbs - Ake dived in to save his side.

9:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

British managers is good enough for me
As for the national team , should be the same rule as there is for players
Must be your nation

9:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor cross from Alexis to ruin a great possession

9:52 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Kathy has always been disgusted that the manger of England isn't English

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Some countries would be in great trouble due to their dependence on foreign managers

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That cross from Chambers was absolute Pants as he was superbly put through down the right and basically passed to the giant Transylvanian keeper.

9:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Woy is English, but two of his predecessors were not.

9:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Did you get my text about the 1995 semi finalists

9:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Of course Woy is English
She was complaining from the off with Sven and Fabio

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ighalho blew a great opportunity to lay a pass on a plate for Deeney to tuck away after being superbly sent through by former Spud, Capoue.

9:56 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Watford had a chance there
Poor decision making there
They created a lot of chances at OT

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That trend will continue because I don't see any English managers ready to take charge of the national team.

9:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry. I did not, but I have one downloading. It must be that one.

9:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That was naughty from Gabriel - studs up. Should have been a yellow or worse.

9:58 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

That wasn't a nice tackle
Sort of jumped in
Not even a card?

9:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nasty foul by Gabriel on Deeney, who was down for a while. I'm suprised a card was not issued.

9:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Cahmbers wins a corner off of Capoue.

10:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! El Nenny did walk like an Egyptian as he was superbly put through , but blasted high and wide. That should have been the lead for the Gunners

10:01 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Chelsea slayers, PSG, could win the title already today
Playing away... Scored in 13, 17 and 19 th minutes
Just as bad as Spain

10:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A tad naughty by Campbell on Behrami. Agaim, I'm surpised there wasn't even a booking

10:03 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

What are your thoughts about the last quarter final?
I'm not confident at all except for LVG's Houdini type qualities

10:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PSG had their first league loss in a year a fortnight ago. That says it all./

10:03 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I expect United to get Hammered today

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the half between the Wolves and the Brummies

10:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought that was a great tackle by Prodl on Ozil. Never a pen

10:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Everton v. Chelsea? I'm glad that Everton won it. But that match had the only two goals of the weekend for the games I've watched. I'm a bit goal starved.

10:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Crazy stuff going on in the northeast and I'm not talking Rafa
Boro manager not allowed to manage today cuz of a bust up at training
Downing was involved
Is it something in the water up there?

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Does anyone know when the draw for the semis occurs?

10:06 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

A goal must be coming
I have to go to the loo

10:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud with a nasty elbow on Prodl there. I suppose Prodl deserves it for that egregious man bun.

10:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Northeast has been a crazy area for as long as I can remember.

10:07 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Draw is tomorrow

10:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Another nasty one from Gabriel. He's begging to get sent off today.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess a goal is due soon since UWS will be in the loo. There hasn't been a first half goal in the quarters up to this point. All late goals.

10:08 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, UWS.

10:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't get the situation with Karanka - what's going on there? I thought Boro were a cinch for promotion.

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You could have seen up to eight goals in the 10 AM matches yesterday and some good ones at that

10:09 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I might need to go to the loo as well - does that mean two goals are coming?

10:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I'm not sure, but the owner's nephew is the starting left back, so I'm sure he taddled to his uncle and exaggerated a tad.

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

I know - I don't know why I picked that time to do some tree pruning. The match-ups just didn't appeal. Stoke and Southampton? Bleh!

10:10 AM

It could be. Might be a perfect time, mate

Blogger United We Stand said...

Last time a team won the Cup three times in a row was back in the 80s... The 1880s!!!
Blackburn Rovers.... Who btw was the last team to beat the Arsenal in the Cup

10:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This one has been a crashing bore so far. Apologies to Gooner and Dad, but then, they're not here are they?

10:11 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Both were decent matches and the Cherries made it over the finish line. I didn't see that coming in August.

10:11 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Elneney has had two of the best chances and he's shanked both of them well over the bar. That's the problem with loading up your team with defensive players, Arsene.

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think the answer to your question is also Blackburn.

10:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two goals?
Well I'm going #2

10:12 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I know
Tmi

10:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He's definitely not walking like an Egyptian.

10:12 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Campbell with a big chance but he popped it over the bar. Don't these blokes want to score?

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Definitely , UWS. I thought you were , though

10:13 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I guess that sentence didn't come out right
I was stating a fact not asking the question
But well done anyway

10:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pants booked for time wasting. A stupid one to pick up so early on. Agreed that it was a horrible miss by Campbell.

10:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Are you going #2 while you're blogging, mate? That would be a first on the LOB, I think.

10:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why would you waste time in the first half of a Cup tie? That makes no sense at all.

10:14 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, UWS. Also, the only lower division team to defeat the Gunners in the Cup under Wenger's reign.,

10:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Alexis nearly connects with that Ozil free kick - another chance goes begging.

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Nice free kick from Ozil, but Alexis just failed to make contact

10:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This is similar to the match when Blackburn knocked the Gunners out of the Cup

10:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time.

10:16 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It looks like 0-0 at the half for three of the quarterfinals.

10:16 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

They struggled against Burnley at the Em in an earlier round

10:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's half-time, then. 0-0 (sigh)....

Arsenal may rue those missed chances. Watford haven't offered much up front but they may get more adventurous in the second half.

10:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 0-0 at the half thanks to some missed sitters by the Gunners

10:18 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Well LVG will do their part with another nil on their scoreboard
The hammers may not have read the script

10:18 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PSG is half a dozen up in the second half.

10:19 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I have moved to matt's laptop instead of my home a half time
Hope it will be easier than the phone

10:21 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

now PSG have seven!!

10:23 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

The Hornets, by the way, haven't scored for 350 minutes - and that was an own goal scored by a Leeds player in the last round of the cup. They've lost their sting.


sorry for bring that up Bob

10:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal about to get us ready for the second half, now.

10:33 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

we are off for the second half

10:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway

10:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A statement of intent that PSG are thirsty for that French title.

10:34 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsenal definitely don't want a replay at Vicarage on their already busy schedule. They have to push on here.

10:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gibbs wins a corner off of Nyom.

10:35 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Not sure if it is official or not for PSG to win the league but I don't think Troyes will make it back... ITS 0-8!!!
Still fifteen minutes to go

10:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Giroud heads inches over from the corner from Ozil

10:36 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Their goal difference is +61
The next best in the division is 4th place Lyon +14

10:36 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's alright, mate. I know you meant to say "an own goal by a Manchester United youth product."

10:36 AM

Busy shmisy

10:37 AM

Yes. Eight is more than enough!

10:37 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Arsenal will still need a goal when he takes off Joel Hunter... I mean Joel Campbell

10:37 AM

Agreed. I'm not sure what's keeping them so busy

10:38 AM

GOAL... TO THE HORNETS!!!

10:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Ighalo has put the Hornets in front!

10:38 AM

Last time Watford made the semis... 2007... beaten by United...im just saying

10:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!! Ighalo gives the hornets the lead against the run of play

10:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Really poor from Gabriel allowing Watford's top scorer to turn him in the area.

0-1!

10:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's true, UWS. I remember that because Ben Foster was on loan from United and couldn't play in the semis.

10:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Things are falling into place for LVG... is he going to ride his luck or fail miserably

10:40 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Watford are starting to threaten like they did at OT
They should have scored at least four that game


Liverpool could have scored at least 6... and I am saying United could win today???

10:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If you lot win the Cup this season - my PPP prediction, btw, will that be good enough for the season?

10:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Really poor defending from the Gunners. Deeney was allowed to beat Merte to head on a long throw from Nathan Ake and really poor from Gabriel , allowing Ighalo too much time to turn and pick his spot.

10:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

El Neny straight at Pants from long range

10:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Troyes down by 8 goals and down by 1 man.... The ref better not add one extra second at the end

10:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Hornets break their scoring duck and it was the player you would have expected to have done so.

10:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zlatan with a hat-trick and Cavani with two. Eight is enough

10:44 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I don't want to diminish the FA Cup in any way whatsoever
An FA Cup win would be brilliant...we haven't won since 2004
BUT NOTHING will make up for the performances this season

I wouldn't care if we didn't win anything but played like Leicester City or the Liverpool of a few years back
Or the UNITED way of old

10:44 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why are they showing the other FA Cup scores now? Fox are so weird with their coverage. At half time, they started playing their stupid theme song while Stuart Holden was trying to make a point.

10:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The goal from Ighalo was the earliest scored in a cup quarterfinal this year

10:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott warming up - what is Arsene waiting for? He needs two bloody goals!

10:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

What I also hate about FOX is if I watch I match in the evening that was played earlier in the day and they show the final score of that match tow minutes in? That's why I'm watching the bloody match. I don;t want to know the score.

10:46 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

They had the B team out yesterday for FS2... Rob Stone was doing the Big East basketball!!


Why can't NBC get the Cup too
Fox don't care and NBC could easily do both!

Good point, Bob. Cursing in the streets of Alex and Bethesda?

No doubt.

10:47 AM

Oh - Ighalo nearly on the end on another chance. He is dangerous.

10:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Ighalo just fails to connect on a superb pass from Ake on the break. That could have been curtains for the Gunners

10:49 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Almost a second for the Hornets

10:49 AM

What the bloody hell is Chambers doing at the top of the box on the end of that chance?!

Arsenal are Total Football run amok!

10:50 AM

Arsenal are looking down the barrel of the same week that Chelski had last week. Out in the Cup here and out in the CL at Barcelona.

10:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was a laser like effort in the upper 90 from Guediora. It started when Ben Watson when a tackle in Midfield. His long ball was chested down by Ighalo to Deeney , who laid it off for Guediora to score that fantastic goa.l

10:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great defending from Cathcart on Giroud off a cross from Chambers. Giroud heads wide from the corner.

10:55 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Told you Joel Hunter would come off

10:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Arsene finally rouses himself to make three changes. Walcott, Welbeck and some other bloke coming on. Campbell, Giroud and someone else off. I'll bet Coq au Vin and Elneny are still on.

10:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Yeah - it's a straight swap then. Ridiculous - you're chasing the match, Arsene!

10:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wellie and Theo on for Campbell and Giroud as the Gooners go with a new front two,.

10:57 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Okay, Elneny did come off. Still - the others were straight swaps.

10:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Iwobi was the third sub on, but I'm not sure who came off.

10:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks for straightening that out, Bob. Iwobi was on for el Neny.

10:59 AM

The last time the Cherries beat United before this season was in 1984. That was the Hornets only ever cup final. A sign that they will be in the cup final this year? Just saying

If the Arse score, the will score again or go VERY close

You lot have a real chance at winning the Cup now with Reading, Everton and now Watford all in the semis.

Abdi on for Guiediora to plug up any gaps in midfield.

Just like when we last won the Cup
We had to beat Millwall... we did beat the Arse in the semis

11:05 AM

Ta, Dave. How is this for fate? Nathan Ake is on loan from Chelsea, but may be playing in a Cup Final instead of the supposed superstars keeping him out of the side. Just saying.

It finished 0-0 at Molineaux between the Wolves and Brummies. Sounds like a real W. Midlands Classic

That was a great chance to get the Gunners back in this match . Gibbs with a free header straight to Pants.

11:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ighalho limps off injured to the disdain of Gabriel and is replaced by Amarabat, who spent more time complaining in the loss to the Foxes than playing.

Great run and pass by Alexis to Chambers, who passes to absolutely nobody except for perhaps a ghost

11:12 AM

De Gea

Just like the other two quarters, it was 0-0 at the half and 2-0 in the second half. The same at OT?

Very true about the Chelsea old guard

Would Jose do the same at OT

News in paper today that Blanc may leave PSG for OT

Spurs blew it against Dortmund midweek
They should have played their weaker line up today at Villa Park and not in Germany

I actually like that change. Also, Larry White would be a much better choice than Jose.

This is what United used to do
This year, they would be passing around with De Gea

Why do teams just sit back
Arsenal look like scoring every time they go forward

Four minutes of stoppage time as Iwobi had a shot come off the post then Gibbs set up wellie,. who shot over with a wide open goal. It should have been Desmond
