The surprise was there was no surprise. Or maybe the surprise was that, after such a remarkable weekend, the bigger club wasn't humbled. West Bromwich had looked the most vulnerable of the more renowned quarter-finalists but, instead, are on course to complete a remarkable double-double having been the last club, in 1931, to win promotion and the FA Cup.

The last and only time Barnsley played Chelsea in the FA Cup, in the third round in 1989, the Yorkshire side won 4-0 and it was not such a shock, even though Chelsea were on their way to the title: it was the old Second Division title, and Barnsley had a good season in the same tier that year.

Wednesday 23 January 2008
Fulham's miserable season took another depressing lurch last night when they were dumped out of the FA Cup in traditionally embarrassing circumstances. Bristol Rovers, two divisions below but vastly superior in terms of both adventure and endeavour, deservedly took their place in the fourth round when prevailing on penalties.
