We thrived on Eriksson magic, says Schmeichel

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The mantra of consumer protectionism has not been far from the lips of the told-you-so faction around Nottingham these past few days. No one in Notts County colours has been spared their pitying smiles. If they see Sven Goran Eriksson, the man once famously fooled by a fake sheikh, before he leaves town for the last time, they might greet him in the same way.

Snow forces Gunners to postpone FA Cup replay

Arsenal's fourth-round FA Cup replay with Cardiff City scheduled to be played tonight at the Emirates fell foul of the heavy snow that is blanketing London when police yesterday decided to postpone the match. Anticipated travel problems meant that the game could not go ahead. The Gunners announced that the match will now be played on Monday 16 February which is the weekend of the fifth-round fixtures and therefore the match between either Arsenal or Cardiff and West Bromwich or Burnley scheduled for that weekend will be put back.
