The FA Cup. Love it or hate, it is a time old tradition in English football that gives the David’s a chance to take down the Goliath’s. Every year there is some no name lower tier side coming from east bumble-fuck England that takes down a top premier league team. This year we’ve seen the likes of Oldham Athletic, Huddersfield Town, Luton Town (the real Cinderella this year), MK Dons, Brentford and Millwall all make somewhat surprising pushes to the later rounds of the Cup. Round 5 saw a few Championship side and League One side clubs take on each other and top tier clubs. Let’s review the action.
