It's FA Cup Quarter-Final Time!

Cockadoodledoo, lads - we're up very early for the FA Cup Quarter Finals this weekend. The action all starts in a moment with Citeh's clash against Boro. Later, we'll get Arsenal fixture against the non-league minnows Lincoln City. In between that we've got a handful of Premiership matches and a full slate of Championship action, including my beloved Leeds taking on QPR at Elland Road. Join me for all the Cup and league action this morning.

Two Premier League sides meet in the first FA Cup quarter-final, yet there is still scope for a giant-killing. The difference between Middlesbrough and Manchester City, in everything from resources to current form, is so pronounced that it would be a big shock if Boro went through today.

As usual, the Fox numpties have decided to run some irrelevant nonsense (in this case, Nascar) instead of pre-match coverage.

The Boro faithful are having a good time with Pigbag's iconic "Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag" as the teams come out. Marvelous atmosphere.

They're off from the Riverside.

And we're away at the Riverside - both sides thankfully wearing their traditional kits.

Good morning, Bob. I'm up to join you as I start Spring Break. How about you?

Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Morning, MUR - great to have you board, albeit only for a bit today, right? I hope that the footer gives you a distraction from the sad duty today.

GOAL! That didn't take long. Citeh were out of the traps quickly and Silva has opened the scoring for them. Boro in disarray.

7:19 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!! SANE GIVES CITEH AN EARLY LEAD AS BORO HAVE YET TO START THE MATCH

7:19 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Zaba found acres of space in the area and volleyed over a cross that one of three Citeh men could have finished. Silva was the one who accepted the invitation.

0-1 Citeh!

7:20 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Given that Boro are typically stronger at the back than they are in the front, that is a very poor start for Boro. Karanka's game plan was likely to play for extra time and penalties. Now they'll actually have to score a goal.

7:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Thanks, Bob. This will be a welcome distraction. I will be here for just this match, but all the action the rest of the week.

7:21 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by a frustrated Ledbitter on Aguero.

7:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Leadbitter takes his frustration out on Aguero’s left leg and is lucky not to be booked.

7:22 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Please pass on my best to Elizabeth's family today.

7:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, Bob. Boro are a traditionally defensive side, but they sure didn't show it. A great team goal , but poor defending . It started down the left then Silva found Yaya, who found Zaba unmarked down then right his cross was flicked on by Sane and tucked away art the far post by Silva

7:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I sure will. Thanks, mate.

7:25 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Aguero is still limping after that kick from Leadbitter. That’s a bit ominous for City, with the trip to Monaco on Wednesday in mind. It was a bad tackle.

7:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just before the goal, I was about to state that this will be the first time the FA Cup quarterfinals will go to a replay and that a fourth sub will be permitted in extra time. That certainly doesn't look like the case in this match

7:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ledbitter should have been at least booked. It seemed intentional.

7:28 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What's happened to the Ginger Winger? Back in the fall, he looked on top of the world. Now, I notice Pep doesn't always start him. And his form has really dropped off.

7:31 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Sane was in behind the Boro defense there but instead of shooting tried to square it to Aguero. Wrong choice.

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is lying on my desk, looking for his Black Cats , but their NE Derby at the Riverside is not being played due to this match.

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

Another wasteful ball from Sane. But Citeh are threatening again and again - in full flow.

7:32 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think he somehow doesn't fit into Pep's style of play. That's my best guess.

7:33 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Barragan booked for an awful foul. A good decision to make Boro players aware in case they had any ideas.

7:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A good number of Citeh fans made the trip to the NE.

7:35 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bor scored a late equalizer when the team met earlier this season . They dominated like they are to day, so a second goal is necessary if Citeh want to clinch a place in the semis.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

De Roon, who scored that late equalizer , volleys well wide.

7:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

First decent chance there - a nice knock down from Gestede and De Roon had a shot from the D. Wildly off target though.

7:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fabio , the ex United player , wins a corner off of Zaba.

7:38 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Fabio wins a corner now - better from Boro.

And the ball is cleared off the line by Zaba from the corner!

7:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nearly an equalizer twice off a great corner from Ledbitter. First Bravo fumbled a close range header from Barragan that was cleared off the line from Zaba , then the return cross from Ledbitter was headed inches over by Gestede.

7:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess both chances off the corner were from Gestede. Sadly for Boro, he seems to have run his course as he's now down injured.

7:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It is as he will be replaced by normal starting striker, Negredo, who played a season for Citeh. He's on a season long loan from Valencia.

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

Yes - Rudy Gestede does seem to be the biggest threat for Boro. I've never really fancied Citeh's backline defensively.

7:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Unfortunately, Negredo has been a relative flop for Boro.

7:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jon Champion giving Clive Allen some stick about the number of London clubs he played for . IS my place as pun master in jeopardy?

7:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That tells you about Boro's scoring problems since he's Boro's top scorer by far.

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

Never, mate. Jon Champion doesn't have anything on you. Doesn't Clive hold the record for the number of London clubs that he played for?

7:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Guzan with a near post kick save from Silva then the danger is cleared.

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

Oh - what a miss from Sane there. Total miscue as he was teed up for a second goal.

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

Citeh to be back in the groove now, after that short period of Boro dominance. If they were to score a second before half time, it would be hard to see Boro coming back.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sane should have put Citeh two up. Silva found Sterling free down the right and his pass found Sane who scuffed a shot that should have been a goal.

7:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Correct, mate . That's why Jon Champion gave him stick. He told Clive that he scored against one of his former London clubs just about every week and even had time to take a brief break from playing ion London to have a spell at Citeh. A tad naughty from Jon Champion?

7:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Stuani with a free header from a great cross that was headed into the ground and straight to Bravo.

7:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Silva with a deflected effort easily saved by Guzan

7:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fabio pulls back Sterling. Neither a Fab nor Sterling challenge.

7:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Yaya heads the free kick from the Ginger Wenger wide.

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

Sane has the ball in the bet but it's been ruled out for offside.

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

Citeh don't seem to be expending any more energy than they absolutely need to today. They've definitely got their eyes on that return leg with Monaco in the CL.

8:00 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ledbitter deservedly booked for an awful foul after getting away with one earlier.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. That seems to be the case.

8:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Two minutes of stoppage time.

8:02 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Morning boys
Sorry for missing the start of this one.... I always figured this one was going to be a ho-hum match

Not sure if you posted this but starting this round there are no replays. Extra time and penalties if needed today AND teams get a fourth substitute only for extra time

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

Into two minutes of stoppage time now.

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

Morning, UWS. This one has been to script so far. But Boro are still technically in it. If they had more firepower, I'd be more hopeful. But it does seem as if Citeh have a gear or two that they could shift into if they were to concede a freak Boro goal.

8:03 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Traore is going to pick up a late yellow card here for a chop on Otamendi.

8:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Adama Traore booked for an unnecessary foul on Otamendi seconds before halftime.

8:04 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's half-time at the Riverside then. Citeh took the lead early and haven't really looked troubled since.

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh is one up at the half thanks to an early goal from David Silva.

8:05 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

HT.... Citeh half way to Wembley
Will there be a full heavyweight line up in the semis or will there be a big surprise

8:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good morning, UWS. I think I mentioned that right after the goal.

8:05 AM

Bob, are you getting a storm this week

We could be getting a FOOT or Two of snow on Tuesday!!

8:11 AM

oooh, just realized that the with the clock change I will only miss the first fifteen minutes of Monday's match instead of the whole half

8:16 AM

Actually, I will get home after only about 5 minutes...lovely jubbley

8:17 AM

The satellite is out , probably due to a storm nearby. I will be watching on foxsoccer2go as the second half is underway

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

Yeah - I'm not really looking forward to it. But fortunately, we're on break, so we can bunker in.

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

I'll look forward to joining you for that one, lads.

8:22 AM

I'm on Spring Break this week, so I will be around for all the action except for today. I will be leaving at the conclusion of the match due to the memorial service for Elizabeth's mom.

8:23 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

We had storms yesterday too, thunderstorms that is. It was drizzling when I took Sparky walkies , then all of a sudden it was a downpour and really windy. Fortunately , I took an umbrella, but unfortunately , Sparky got soaked.

8:25 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A similar move to the goal as the Ginger wenger pulls back a cross and Sane shoots over from a few yards out. Another missed sitter.

8:26 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bernardo is off injured for Boro and replaced by local youngster , Dael Fry.

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

Citeh are turning up the heat now to try to kill this one off. Lots of misses. Doubt whether they'll rue those, in the end.

8:27 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That was actually a very good save from Big Brad from Aguero. Kept Boro in this one.

8:27 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! Aguero with a missed sitter as he hits the post from a few yards out.

8:28 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Will Citeh regret those missed chances. This is very similar to the match at the Etihad earlier this season where De Roon scored a stoppage time equalizer.

8:29 AM

Brad Guzan at full stretch as he turns around a long range effort from Silva with a finger tip save

8:39 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Sorry, I was in the loo for the beginning of the second half
Still ho-hum?

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Brad superbly turns around a long range effort from Sane.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Welcome back. Citeh have had several chances to extend their lead since the break.

8:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An attacking switch as Gaston Ramirez is on for Ledbitter.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Gaston Ramirez comes on then to give some extra oomph up front for Boro.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

No Nocito Curse today?

8:42 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

So, anyone for all away wins this weekend in the Cup
United, City, Millwall and Lincoln?
I do think it will be a big four for the final four
Chelsea, City, Spurs and Arsenal




TWO NIL CITY

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Aguero puts this one to bed.

8:42 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL !!!!! THAT SHOULD OD IT AS AGUUERO PUTS CITEH TWO UP

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Likely to be the case, yes.

8:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Sane and De Bruyne are withdrawn then. Monaco awaits.

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

This goal was coming as Guzan was forced to make several saves. A great team goal down the left that culminated in a pass from Sane tucked in by Aguero.

8:45 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Sterling wraps things up - no he's ruled offside.

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

Ball in the net...but the flag is up...not sure

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bravo with an unconventional save as he made a slide tackle save off a solo run from Ramirez.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Citeh could have gone three up.

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

shame United have to go to the Bridge
They've never retained the Cup

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Aguero is tackled for yet another Citeh corner.

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Citeh players are lining up for a third goal now. Silva's shot is just about blocked out.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Brad Guzan saves a deflected effort from Silva then gathers the rebound.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hoping for an away win Monday. I could see that one going to penalties as both teams are in a good run of form, but I'm guessing an Italian style 1-0 win to Chelsea because they don't have nearly the number of fixtures that United do.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It should be an interesting return to SB for Jose and Juan Mata.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great sweeper keeping from Guzan, who keeps the score down

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Guzan headed to Atlanta United at the end of the season.

8:51 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

ooh, off the line by Stones

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

Claudio Bravo is a rubbish keeper but you wouldn't know it playing in this Citeh side today. He could have gone off for a kebab during much of this second half. About the only things he's had to do, he's relied on his defenders to bail him out. Like there.

8:52 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Stones clears a header from Fabio off the line. The best football of the match as Traore went on a solo run, his cross was headed down by Negredo then Fabio's header was cleared off the line.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Just that one slide tackle on Ramirez. He could have gone to the loo.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I guess you could say that Boro were a Stones throw from getting back into this match.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sterling with a shot easily saved by Guzan . He should have done better,

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I noticed that all the other quarterfinals take place in London as do the remaining ties. I guess this is the last FA Cup tie of the season to be played outside London.

8:56 AM

8:58 AM

Three minutes of stoppage time and the final roll of the dice from Pep as Ihenacho is on for Aguero.

Boro will spend the remainder of the season fighting for their Premier League lives.

9:07 AM

Ihenacho wins a late Citeh corner,.

9:07 AM

NBC showing the Best of the Rest match at Goodison Park between 7th Everton and 8th WBA

Strange happening this weekend....both Merseyside sides play at home. That never happens but is this weekend because of the Anfield construction earlier in the season. Liverpool moved some home games to away at the beginning to finish their stand. Their match where they lost 2-0 at Turf Moor should have been at Anfield so today's match should have been in Burnley

BTW, I don't like the offside rules

David Silva was offside as the ball went out to the wing. It wasn't called because the ball didn't go to him BUT he was closer to the goal as the cross came in. so he had an unfair advantage

Penalty to Bournemouth! Feghouli is defending on the right flank, and Charlie Daniels passes to his right and then heads towards the box. Feghouli follows him, waits until he’s in the area, and then grabs him by the shoulder and hauls him down!

Llorente has been in great form but he failed to get a touch on that free kick chance.

We'll need some help today from Villa against Not a Big Club, Brentford against Hudders, PNE against Reading and a draw, please, between Newcastle and Fulham.

That's alright - early doors. A draw would be fine in that one. I don't see Newcastle blowing a home match against the Cottagers.

Now it's the Canaries with an opening goal at home to Blackburn. Knock it off you lot!

I did hear that Pardew was in the frame for the job

That might be a good fit for him.

Goals all over the place at Fleetwood against Bolton

Sounds like the goal from Tom Cairney for Fulham was a right stonker.

Bolton really should be back up in the Championship.

Angel Rangel has done himself an injury and has been replaced by Amat.

Josh King has equalized! Making up for his earlier miss, he's done a Pele, flipping the ball over his shoulder, turning and hitting it home on the volley. Sounds like a special goal!

1-1!
