No really sparkling individual displays were there, but I think if a MotM had to be selected, then it clearly had to be James Milner. It wasn't an easy games for any of our lads to have to negotiate and keep their reputations intact, but we progressed through to round four, and at the end of the day, thats all that really mattered. Yes, agree with Milners nomination, with a special mention for Zat Knight, who I thought did nothing wrong.

As for how far can we go in the F.A. Cup, well the obvious answer I think, is that we could very easily go all the way, and lift the trophy. It all depends of course on the luck of the draw, and the occasional lucky break and run of the ball during the games. Its impossible to say. The way we've performed in recent seasons against lower league opposition, we could very easily end up getting turned over at Cheltenham or Doncaster in round four.
