Today In The FA Cup...

The Premiership is actually taking the weekend off, deferring to the third round of the FA Cup, a big tournament open to all the teams in England, be they a top Premiership team, or a collection of lumberjacks with a Nerf soccer ball.

Sheffield United 0-3 Swansea. Here's everything I know about Swansea: they're a League One team, a full two leagues below Sheffield United, and "Swansea" sounds like a premium brand of canned tuna fish. They not only upset Sheffield United today, they kind of beat their ass. And it was in Sheffield's own building, no less. Sheffield did have a bunch of starters out, but still... it's Swansea. That's embarrassing.

Liverpool 1-3 Arsenal. Liverpool are the defending champions of this little FA Cup shindig, and they lost 3-1 at the hands of Arsenal today. Tomas Rosicky scored twice for Arsenal, Dirk Kurt pulled Liverpool to within 1, and then Thierry Henry finished it off with this goal. Enjoy the low-quality video.

Nottingham Forest 2-0 Charlton. This will be today's second example of a bad Premiership team getting worked over by a League One side. Relegation-bound Charlton was shut out by a team calling themselves Nottingham Forest.
