Paul, it sounds like your journey to and from the match was much better than the game itself, ten out of ten for your efforts.

We got through, which is the main object in any cup game and hopefully we can continue to the terminus of this cup and win it.

I hope Dominic and Sidibé continue their good performances versus Wednesday with a repeat against City on Saturday.

Thanks for a good report on the cup game.

Great report as usual, Paul, but what a nightmare journey! SatNavs drive me mad, with so many country roads down my way I can be chugging along and the SatNav chimes in with “Turn off road where possible” and there isn't a turning for miles!! What the fuck is that about??

At least we won and you got home safely. Keep smiling!!

Dave, I was going to go back over Woodhead but that was closed so I ended up going up towards Huddersfield and then M62 - bugger me a section of that was then closed with a long, slow detour.

Still, a riveting game at Hillsborough! Well, for 20 mins or so. A dark, dour stadium. Glad to see Davies get a run. And glad to see Walcott didn't get a run (what do you mean, he did?).

A report that brings a smile to my face which is a rare occurrence recently! Well done for

a) making the journey
b) taking the time to write a great summary
c) getting home in one piece!

The journey sounds more fun than the match!

Brent, I don't think the steward in front of me was very impressed when I said to him about 15 minutes in, "when are you going to turn the floodlights on"? It was, as you say, a dark and dour stadium.

Yes, those Sat Navs can be a mixture between a life-saver when you are totally lost, and a nightmare when they take you to a dead-end or a road closed. They are renowned for taking the longest route, but always get you there in the end.

The thing is you never know if it's the limitations of the device or the Authorities not transmitting the updates on road closures.

I have mixed feeling about SatNavs though I like the way the women talks to me, not like my wife who asks if I know where I am going and comments on my driving.

Interesting player analysis, particularly Mina and the centre-of-the-field players. I think Holgate could be better than him, better at distributing the ball. Sidibe is an experienced high-level player, as is Delph. Davies appears to have done well. Faster movement of the ball realised players quicker. Calvert-Lewin is the best forward we have got; Richarlison was disappointing.

An excellent result, as I spent yesterday at Pontefract Races with a Wednesday supporter. Good to see CDL get his goals, I'm not sure he can really be a back-to-goal man, but it was encouraging.
