FA Cup: Birmingham tie delayed

FA Cup: Birmingham tie delayed

Blues are due to meet the winners of the second-round tie but their replay on Wednesday night was abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.

They will now try again for a third time on January 4, with Lee Clark's side duly set to meet the victors at St Andrew's on the rearranged date of Tuesday January 7, kick-off 7.45pm.

Crawley and Rovers were goalless at the Checkatrade.com Stadium when the replay was abandoned after 75 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch, with the initial meeting at the Memorial Stadium earlier this month also finishing in stalemate.

It means Birmingham will now enjoy a fixture-free weekend early in the new year, with all other Championship and Premier League clubs in third-round action.

That is sure to provide a welcome boost to boss Clark, whose side already face four games in 12 days starting with Saturday's home encounter against Nottingham Forest.

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
