This is written before the Man United verses Reading tie.

But with Chelsea, Wigan, and Man City banging in four goals,and Oldham getting a draw with a late goal against Everton, it was another thrilling advert for the Cup.

But for me the highlight of the round has to be Wigan turning Huddersfield over, not because I dislike the Town or like Wigan, but I just loved the fact Robins lost his first game in charge of his new team !

Editor’s note:

Have to agree.
Michael Appleton and Mark Robins have both set a very bad example of managerial loyalty (not) recently.
