    I'm not sure I've ever seen a Keita performance to justify the hype

    Alberto Moreno is absolute garbage too. Can see him ending up at Cardiff or someone similar.

    Moreno proper phoning it in too.

    I've liked that child you've got defending. Fearless stuff.

    Nice of Liverpool to turn up in the second half and try and make a game of it

    That was a shite first half. Only plus was seeing that 16 year old look good apart from the rather predictable lack of muscle to his frame.

    Somewhat annoyed by how week Klopp started the team as. That first half performance was a clear sign they knew not who their team mates where.

    I guess at least it was only won by a worldie and we had another super close call with Shaq's free kick.

    The luck is no longer with us it seems...

    At home to Watford if we can struggle through an away leg at Ewood Park. What an uninspiring way to get knocked out of the FA Cup this year.

    Millwall away for us. Don't think we'll be able to bundle our way through that like we did with Lincoln.

    The save from the free kick was immense.

    Wonder which bollocks kick off time they'll choose for Arsenal vs Utd...

    Arsenal vs Man Utd is boring. Show the Newport game.

    Yeah. Just wondering if the City defeat took the wind out of Liverpool’s sails? They really looked like they couldn’t be arsed tonight.

    You could hear and feel the whole studio deflate when Brentford came out of the hat for Barnet.

    Should've been a top half Premier League side.

    The FA really need to do something about this competition as it's becoming more and more pointless each year. The majority of premier league clubs couldn't really give a toss about it anymore. Shame.

    True and I was more than happy that Gillingham beat us.

    The only thing that might affect things is giving it a Champions League place but since the winner is usually City or Chelsea or Arsenal anyway I doubt it'd change much

    Quite. All PL ties are dull as. The trouble is, Utd in particular are still the biggest draw across the country (and globally) so will virtually always be shown.

    Giving a champions League place to the FA cup winner isn't a great idea in my opinion. They should just dump the League cup and go to one competition.

    Yeah, 6 games for CL? Nah, not for me.

    Not sure what the answer is, but winning it is still as great now as it was 40 years ago.

    Semi shouldn't be at Wembley for one.

    Give the games back to the BBC. Hell give ITV some but get them away from BT and stop moving games to suit TV.

    Doesn't that make the problem worse though? ITV and BBC won't pay as much as Sky/BT etc so there's less money for the clubs and the top teams will put even worse XI's out.

    It'll never be able to compete with the PL and CL ever again sadly. I don't see a way to fix it.

    Edit: I agree they should be scheduled at reasonable times.

    @captbirdseye it was an odd game. Only really came to life in fits and starts. Probably our most cohesive performance of the season, though, and we celebrated it like a World Cup win after the last few dire years. Now to go and get spanked at Swansea. :)

    Well more will be able to watch it being the reason to take it off bt but yeah it's not an easy fix especially when you get games like last night with a manager who clearly doesn't care for the tournament.
