FA Cup Saturday: Aston Villa v Sheffield United

Everything that has been said, written understood or not understood is behind us now. Today is the FA Cup and today is special. Anyone that tells you the FA Cup isn't special is either too young or doesn't have a heart.

Me, I'm old and I've got a heart of gold. For me the FA Cup is special, but it's the entire day, it's not just Aston Villa. But that's why I'm here now.


When we got Sheffield United, with a squad of Premier League players, the manager would have been happy. He can rest one or two and even after everything has been said, this is a good opportunity to get into the next round.

In fact, it's a great opportunity even though for Sheffield United, this is the biggest game of their season. We should have enough to get through and fingers crossed, we should also dominate this match.

Updates, team news and on the road

But I'm not going to be able to watch the match until later. I'll get it on the radio, but today is one of those days that I can not commit to watching unless I stop and try and find a legal stream.

I'm going to try that, but I have to try later and there is no guarantee, so there is every chance I'll be here later following from those providing updates.

But we'll have team new as and when we get it and if anyone has an interesting link or two, please feel free to post it.
