Magic of the FA Cup still well and truly alive

Lincoln became the first non-league team to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals in more than a century by beating Premier League side Burnley 1-0 with an 89th-minute goal overnight. Raggett connected with a corner at the back post to head the ball into the goal in front of the Imps fans.

Lincoln have already beaten Guiseley, Altrincham, Oldham, Ipswich Town and Brighton and Hove Albion in this season competition.

Minor league Lincoln City produced a huge FA Cup shock to beat top-flight Burnley 1-0 and reach the quarter-finals for the first time in their history on Saturday.

Lincoln frustrated Burnley throughout the game, with striker Matt Rhead and Barton often outmuscling one another as tensions grew in the final minutes.

Middlesborough narrowly avoided cup embarrassment, overcoming a resilient Oxford United comeback to down the League One side.

"We've done well in the FA Cup and FA Trophy, so we've played somewhere in the region of 45 games in mid-February".

"It's a day you'll treasure for the rest of your life", he said.

"We can't underestimate them".

Jim Jefferies and Piers Morgan Should have a Celebrity Death Match
Moments later, Jefferies punctuated his point by giving Morgan the middle finger while the crowd cheered him on. Piers started by imploring Maher to "calm down" and went on to say that there is no Muslim ban.

All of which is not to say that Alli, whose 20th goal came in Tottenham's 2-0 defeat of Chelsea last month, will develop into a better player than the illustrious names above, nor that he will go on to surpass their considerable medal hauls at club level.
