The Magic of The FA Cup
The FA Cup is the oldest football tournament in world football and is watched by millions of fans around the planet. The FA Cup final is watched more than any other game except the world cup final. The magic of the FA Cup is not only when small teams beat the big clubs, it is the true essence of the cup that makes it truly magical for all fans.
Highlights so Far
This season has been no different in which certain big teams have been beaten and knocked out of the tournament by teams in a lower league.
One of the highlights so far is how Sutton made the 5th Round and were able to host the mighty Arsenal at their small stadium. This was the biggest game of the club’s history and even though there was an incident called ‘Piegate’ this took nothing away from the achievement of the team and management.
Lincoln City have made the Quarter Finals for the first time in the history of the football club. Whilst they will go into the game against Arsenal as huge underdogs they will be confident of pulling off one of the upsets of recent years.
