Later today, with six games left in the Premier League season and a mere four points separating them at the top of the table, the two best teams in England—Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur—will meet at Wembley for the semi-final of the FA Cup. Narratives abound.
Nothing—not losing, not winning, and certainly not cascading jeers from fans of his former club—will stop Jose Mourinho from talking heaps of trash. The man simply cannot help himself. On Monday, the fighting words came after Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinal, during which Chelsea…
José Mourinho thinks he deserves credit for Chelsea’s success this season. You can tell that this is true because he has said the exact opposite.
Non-league Sutton United continued its miraculous run through the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over Championship side Leeds United thanks to a penalty scored by team captain Jamie Collins, who earns a living with his day job as a bricklayer.
Aaron Ramsey helped wake up a pathetic-looking Arsenal early in the second half of the Gunners’ FA Cup match at Preston North End with this rocket golazo from just outside the box that left keeper Chris Maxwell hopeless. Credit, too, to Alex Iwobi’s heroism in holding onto the ball despite defenders surrounding him…
Thanks to some poor camera work, the video above doesn’t totally encapsulate the flat-out non-human feat of athleticism that created Thamesmead Town’s crazy-looking goal in the F.A. Cup.
There was a full two minutes back there—three, practically—when Crystal Palace looked as if it might pull off the greatest victory in its 110-year history. Having been outplayed till then in the FA Cup, Joel Ward put in a sort of cross just as midfielder Jason Puncheon sprinted beyond the pack. Puncheon gathered it…
British pop singer Karen Harding had one job before today’s FA Cup Final at Wembley: to sing “God Save The Queen.” It didn’t work out so well for her—having missed her cue, she stood silently for most of the anthem before finally chiming in for the final few words. At least those are the most important, right?
Anthony Martial scored the winner in the third minute of stoppage time as Manchester United overcame an own goal to beat Everton in today’s FA Cup semifinal, 2-1.
Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has plenty of reasons to feel proud of his team’s 2-1 underdog victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup this weekend. Add in his past stint as a Tottenham player, though, and you can understand why he saw fit to dump on them so forcefully after a game he didn’t even play in.
On one hand, it’s a fitting reflection of the topsy-turvy season in England that, heading into the final four of the FA Cup, the competition’s best remaining player isn’t a world-famous, well-decorated superstar for Chelsea or Manchester City or Arsenal, but rather trophy-barren Everton’s 22-year-old striker. On the…
Arsenal crashed out of their specialty competition (the FA Cup) this morning after a 2-1 loss to Watford. Since they probably aren’t gonna beat Barcelona by the two goals they need to to take their Champions League tie, and the EPL looks like a more distant prospect every week, the FA Cup was their best shot at a…
Everton downed Chelsea 2-0 in FA Cup action today, though the real excitement came in the final minutes as Diego Costa earned a red card for intruding on Gareth Barry’s personal space; Barry himself would be sent off minutes later, but let’s not miss the glory of Costa either kissing Barry, trying to give him a…
The good news: Arsenal beat Hull in their FA Cup replay today, scoring some pretty goals and looking pretty good doing so, earning their way into the quarterfinals of the competition they’ve won two years running now.
This isn’t even a dedicated Dimitri Payet individual highlight video and yet it’s still composed almost entirely of West Ham’s superstud going all best mode all over Blackburn in the FA Cup this weekend. And that’s because any time the Hammers do something cool, you can bet Payet will be at the center.
If you can’t tell from the angle above, that is Liverpool’s Christian Benteke bearing down on West Ham’s goalkeeper in extra time of their FA Cup replay. If you know anything about the striker in question, you can guess what happened next:
Manchester United is even 1-1 with Championship side Derby County at the half of their FA Cup match after George Thorne found the net courtesy a gorgeous over-the-top pass from Chris Martin.
Yesterday’s FA Cup match between Eastleigh and Bolton featured a pitch invader on a mission—one that, despite his obvious interference, didn’t manage to stop play. The referee gave the advantage, and the Idiot On The Field fell on his ass.
Everton played something called Dag & Red FC this morning in the FA Cup, but more importantly, a cat invaded the game and tried to play soccer as if it was a human. Newsflash for you, my pal: no cats allowed.
