Today In The FA Cup...

Bristol City 2-2 Middlesbrough. Balls of titanium on those Bristol City boys. The League One side faced a two goal deficit at halftime against the heavily-favored Premiershippers from Middlesbrough. Injury-riddled 'Boro got first half goals from Aiyebgeni Yakubu and Malcolm Christie, but Bristol City came out in the second half and got goals from two people I've never heard of, and will never hear of again. The tie means that the two clubs play again, with City's second chance coming on February 13th.

West Ham 0-1 Watford. West Ham was the only Premiership team to lose in the FA Cup today, and it came at the hands of another Premiership team. Watford is that for a little while longer, anyway. The good news for West Ham is that this particular loss isn't a league game, so their status as the first team in the relegation zone isn't threatened. They've still got that going for them.

Manchester United 0 1-0 Portsmouth. Another game between two Premiership teams, and it's scoreless through about 70 minutes. Wayne Rooney just entered the game about minutes ago for United ... they've had the better of the play so far, but haven't been able to poke one home. Oh, they just did ... look at that, right on cue. Wayne Rooney with a right-footer from the top of the six-yard box, converting the cross from Ryan Giggs... I feel like I'm liveblogging.
