Match Of The Week: Manchester United 1-0 Crawley Town

Perhaps we should spare a thought for the ordinary supporters of Crawley Town. The thousand or so die-hards that have been going to Broadfield Stadium for a few years have had a tough time of it over the last few seasons and they may well believe that they, if no-one else, have earned their day…

One of the paradoxes of the FA Cup is that the more likely a club is to win it, the less they care about it. This doesn’t apply at the Fourth Qualifying Round stage, though, where the possibility of a big payday and the comparative glamour of a live match on the television looms on the horizon.

Little Rays Of Sunshine

It’s probably fair to say that we would all like the league tables at the end of the season to have been decided by events that take place on the field of play. This is why the points deductions that were handed out by the Football League during the summer left such a bad taste…
