Well done! I’m so happy we made that tw*t Chris Sutton eat his words…what a complete wanker he is and a terrible football puntit and an overrated skinny, inconsistent player.
My partner went to school with him ,said he was a twit.

Oh the irony of Oxford fans singing 'boring boring arsenal' after how they played against us and had it sung to them!

It certainly woke the Gunners up, 0-3 Arsenal with 3 goals in less than 15 mins. 🤣👍

You’re not wrong there Liz, but what a shocking first half from the Gunners who were easily held by a well organised Oxford. I suggest this gives us a window of hope if Vincent Kompany plays us with a second string X1 in the 4th Round.

I think the lower league sides have done well against championship/ PL teams in the 3rd round. I think it’s the subliminal psychology behind it all that’s fascinating to me. The top ( better team/ players), try as they might to suppress it are driven ( or lack of it in their cases) by that little voice deep within that’s keeps saying ….” We’ll be alright…. We’re better than them” Arsenal , Newcastle, Villa , Forest etc, and try as they might are all in a slightly cruise mode . I can tell you from the sport I used to play . It’s really hard to get out of that mode. All these teams caught a cold. Yet that reverse psychology of the so called underdog, Blackpool, Stevenage etc …. Feel they’ve got nothing to lose snd have no respect for reputations or league standing. They’re there to be knocked down aren’t they. So they’re right up for it . Adrenaline is pumping through their veins ( probably a lot higher rate than their
“ better “ opponent.

That’s our problem every game at home, our opponents come here adrenaline pumping, lol !

Anyway, that’s why the FA cup holds the attention every season. There’s always that chance of a giant killing isn’t there.

But I don’t think Burnley will underestimate us somehow .

That's a dive. In normal play (normal speed) he's clearly lost the ball; the tap fwd was too strong, and he's chucked himself on the turf. Needs stamped out of the game. Its a complete joke.
But the covering defender kept the ball in at a jog and KVY was far closer to it when he went down, he'd have got there first and there was a man in the middle, can't see it myself. Even a tickle and one foot being the other, like toe tap in rugby, on your face. Can't say that happened, you could be right, there could be no contact.

Obviously agree on the bottom line though, if blatant dive, 10 game ban, let's see how quickly diving becomes a thing of the past.
Had to fwd the link to the bro-in-law to put it onto his 60 thousand inch telly......., & zoom in. There genuinely is no obvious contact there.

And the part in bold......, completely disagree with that also :lol: :lol: :lol:

You've got to just LOVE the fitbaw eh, Ricco......, we are all arseholes with opinions.
No, that's not how the saying goes.......,
Wait.....,
Popped up on my 'feed' a video finally with multiple angles that weren't 300m away.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M0grG38Aao

Definitely contact, definitely went down too easily. So maybe we're both right and both wrong? I think our opinions are arseholes, that's the saying, right?

Good lord Mike, maybe you should support Man City or something a little steadier, I don't think being a Town supporter is conducive to good health :lol:

Sorry about that Marko! I'd only seen the one distant angle.

To ease disappointment, I did find this photo of the incident too, I do think there's contact:
