Fair play to Oldham

It might not have been the result we as Everton fans were after, but what a weekend for the FA Cup again!

Arsenal out to Championship side Blackburn Rovers and a 95th minute equaliser for League One side Oldham Athletic against Everton.

It's why the FA Cup is a special competition and it's why the magic of the FA Cup lives on.

We of course just wish it wasn't at our expense, but unlike Liverpool at least we are still in the competition and hopefully at Goodison Park we should put the tie to bed.

"Oldham deserved their replay, I couldn`t stand here and say they didn`t. Fair play to them.' Moyes told The Echo after the game.

Everton of course had led twice during the game with goals from Victor Anichebe and Phil Jagielka, but a 95th minute equaliser, with all 22 men in the penalty box jostling for a corner came from Matt Smith`s header.

He continued: "When you have a minute to go, you think you are through. We hadn`t played great and we missed a couple of chances that might have finished the game off. They had a couple of opportunities but you would have expected it.

"We just couldn`t get a head or the goalie`s hands on it. I thought we could see it out but in the last five minutes we looked as if we were panicking a bit and we didn`t do the right things."

you could see that oldham were about to score an equaliser, they threw everything at getting the goal but i can't understand why the ref allowed their keeper to throw his hands in the air like he did, we desparetly need new blood in the side especially in midfield were once again osman went missing, we need a lee carsley or graveson to take charge and put a boot up some of the players backsides
