5 best reactions to FA Cup action


It was another weekend of FA Cup action to savour, with several shocks and surprise results – with another five Premier League clubs crashing out.

We’ve been looking at how social media reacted to the big stories of the fourth round.


1) Vinnie dishes it out to Hammers

Legendary Wimbledon hardman Vinnie Jones was making a rare TV appearance as a pundit on Saturday, as his old club caused a big upset.

The current day Wimbledon beat West Ham (4/5 Top 10 Premier League Finish) at Kingsmeadow and Jones was loving it….but it is fair to say he wasn’t impressed with the Hammers!

2) Has someone got the remote!

Everton (33/1 Top Six Finish) were left fuming by Millwall’s second goal in the Lions’ 3-2 win at the New Den.

Marco Silva clearly thought it was handball and told the officials to watch the big screen replays, while Neil Harris was asking for the screen to be turned off!

3) Rashford embarrasses Utd team-mate

Manchester United made it eight out of eight under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with a 3-1 win at Arsenal on Friday night.

Although it was another impressive display from the Red Devils, something else really caught the eye before the match. Watch this ‘naughty’ bit of skill from Marcus Rashford to leave Fred running for cover!

4) The Peter Clarke Show

League One Doncaster (23/40 to be promoted) made it through to the fifth round for the first time since 1956, with a 2-1 win over League Two side Oldham.

But it was Latics defender Peter Clarke who stole all the headlines after being involved in everything at the Keepmoat Stadium!

5) Toon fans fuming

Newcastle (15/4 to be relegated) suffered another early FA Cup exit on Saturday, going down 0-2 at home to Premier League rivals Watford.

Once again the fans vented their anger towards owner Mike Ashley. This supporter used damning FA Cup facts to make his point!
