F.A. Cup Quarter Final game results

last updated Sunday 10th March 2002, 11:43 PM
Fulham win again and go through to the semifinals of the F.A. Cup for the first time in 27 years. The first time in fact since we played in the Cup Final for the only time in our history, so far.

The lads beat West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns although the score was flattering for the Baggies as Louis Saha could have had a hattrick if the Albion keeper had been a little less active. Steve Marlet also had the ball in the net in the first half but the Ref said he saw Fulham players in offside positions so the Steve's effort was canceled out.

Even the so called pundits like Andy Gray are starting to realise that Fulham could be the team despite the Bookies making us 3rd favourites after Arsenal and chelsea. JeanTigana must also be hoping that a suprise is possible because he let his normal controlled image slip to race on and embrace Steve Marlet at the end of the game.

Unfortunately we did not get Middlesbrough in the semi's which would have allowed us to meet the blue menace in the final as they got drawn out immediately after us. We will therefore have to squash them in the semifinals.

iOther games
Arsenal and Newcastle were unable to come to a clear conclusion in the first quarter-final on Saturday and will replay on Saturday March 23rd at 15.00. chelsea walloped Spurs and Middlesbrough did a job on a very poor Everton. Hopefully they are as bad when we play them up in Liverpool on Saturday .

Saturday 09 Mar 2002 - 17.35
AXA-Sponsored FA Challenge Cup 6th Round

Newcastle (0) 1-1 (1) Arsenal

The Magpies dominated possession and territory throughout their FA Cup quarter-final, but they lacked a cutting edge in the final third - much as they had done in Arsenal's 2-0 league win here at St James' Park seven days ago. It had looked like being Groundhog Day for Newcastle after Edu had converted Arsenal's only real chance of the first period on 14 minutes, as he tucked the ball home at the near-post after good work by Sylvain Wiltord. Newcastle continued to press for a winner and Laurent Robert's strike seven minutes into the second-half salvaged a 1-1 draw for Newcastle, giving both sides another chance to reach the last four when they meet again. The replay will take place at Highbury on Saturday the 23rd March.
