The Cumbrians are fighting hard, but in the end the two goals scored by Cardiff either side of halftime will cost us.
My hope is we take this kind of competitive spirit into the league as we are currently battling to stay in the Football League.

Cardiff won 4-3. :(
We played well and were more than competitive in both games, but cost ourselves with lapses around the half time break. We conceded two goals straight after halftime in the first game we drew 2-2 and we conceded in the 45th and 48th minutes today.

What a poor game that was. Season isn’t really delivering one the entertainment front this year. I know one set of supporters are going to disagree with that obviously

A lot of people complaining about the BBC coverage, they televised both Man U/Wolves games and they turned out to be a bore, meanwhile 100kms north there was a highly entertaining game played by two team that don't participate the EPL and don't get the national coverage the EPL teams do. A lot of people are saying the FA Cup should be about the smaller clubs, especially in the early rounds.

Indeed, the cockneys knew it, or was there transport issues out of the capital. Old Toilet looked a bit empty....

United always get shown. They had a streak of 58 matches/12 years where every FA Cup game they played was shown not that long ago.

Would much rather see lower league teams.

Pep saying replays should be scrapped. Has some merit although if that were to happen lower league teams in 3rd / 4th round should automatically get home ground advantage if playing against a PL club.

Wishing my old school peer Jackson Irvine all the best in his FA Cup match against us. Hope he plays well on a personal front, but we get the away victory.
