Leeds beating Spurs.....Michael Brown all over Scott Parker..... Sam Byram keeping Bale in his pocket the only disappointment is that old sloppy chops isn't in charge!

Leeds beat Spurs with Scott Parker wearing the armband, who says the Magic of the FA Cup is gone?

Also, did I see Suarez wearing the armband for Liverpool or did the alcohol from last night have some adverse effects?

love the reaction of the liverpool keeper and Skrtel. the ball bounced away from the keeper and the oldham strikers goes for it yet gets booked while the LP players are seen putting there hands on him and get nothing

yes it was a close challenge but he well in his rights to have a crack at it

Looks like two players could leave City soon - Balotelli (Milan, 22-24M euro) and Kolo Toure (Galatasaray, 1.5-2M euro). Both deals would be very good.

I think they still need to sell Dzeko if they'll want to sign Cavani or Falcao.

Also looks like I was right about Txiki and he's the boss now. City should even switch to 4-3-3 next season so we'll see what will happen.

Hard fought win for Oldham although Liverpool had chances, especially Sturridge in the 1st half. I see the lad that scored their 3rd is on his way back to City.

I didn't see Chelsea vs Brentford, how late on was Torres equalizer?

Congrats mate, I thought to myself the icing on the cake would have been if 'arry was still Spurs manager as I know you love you some AVB. The second goal was a cauliflowered stonker of net ripping flatulence!

So is Mancini just a puppet there now?

I wouldn't say he's a muppet and his relationship with Txiki is much better than with Marwood but that academy project is the future of Man. City and it's important to have some continuity and fluidity. Also their results in Europe are not good at all so they have to act and make some changes. 6 or 7 players should leave now or in the summer and they'll try to rebuild/improve their midfield.

Agreed, he seems to give the ball away cheaply as well by having wasteful hit & hope shots at goal quite often.

However it's to be expected, if anyone can improve him it's Ferguson & Manchester United. My main issue is that for 10m + 5m later you should be more or less getting a player that is a little more along than I feel Zaha is.. however I could be mistaken. I've not watched nearly enough of him to rule him as a fail signing just yet, but in the glimpses I have seen of him he looks quite clumsy at times.

Given our current position with Valencia badly out of form, Nani wasting too much time & going down too softly & with Ashley Young being our best current winger he could well find himself thrown straight into the deep end next season.

I hope so, unless we are getting him for 5m or so, I don't think he's worth the risk.

Yeesh. So many top teams going out or almost going out this round. Everyone wants to be the next Bradford, it seems.

Cheers mate, although getting drawn against City away was a nice kick in the balls, Bapi we're coming for you! To be fair to AVB I think his defensive players really let him down, Diouf and McCormack are two of the slowest players I've ever seen yet the amount of times they got in behind was untrue. "Net ripping flatulence" may just be the most inspired description I've heard!

I fear it's only a matter of time before Sam Byram goes, first season as a pro and the boys the business!

Byrams signed a new contract until 2016. He's going nowhere

Becchio's signed up till 2014 and he's still off, Delph was signed up for 5 years when he left. It's Leeds United mate, if the offers half decent he'll be gone.

We could be about to sign David Villa, but it looks as though it is going to go right down to the wire.

While that would be a pretty big signing and surprising because of it, is he what you guys really need right now?

We need a clinical and efficient striker, a '30 goal a season' type striker. We're never going to shell out the moeny required to get a Falcao or a Cavani, so a 32 year old David Villa is better than nothing. His pedigree is there for all to see, and despite his age, most of Villa's goals come as a result of his movement, rather than his physicality or pace, so he should still be a valuable asset, and is a different option to what we currently have.

He desperately wants to join us now from what I've heard, but Barca are playing hard ball. Probably, pee'd off by us fleecing them 15m for Song..
