    Quote Message: “It’s out of your control when it goes to a penalty shootout. “It’s more about the players and fans that turned out. You never plan to win that way but if you’re going to win and go to the quarter-finals of a competition like this that’s the best way to do it. We were poor today. That’s probably the worst we’ve played. But what a tremendous testament to League One.” from Karl Robinson Oxford United manager

    Quote Message: “We played seriously and the quality of the pass was high. We arrived in the final third, especially wingers, with quality. Generally it was a good game other than the last minutes which can happen. We go through – quarter-finals now, and into the draw. You cannot win four titles in one season when you don’t care about some games or some competitions. We did it again, we played so seriously – I think that is how we played so good – and we are there. And for the players who didn’t play the last game, it is good for the rhythm, for myself to see they are fit and they are good.” from Pep Guardiola Man City manager

    Quote Message: “It was a defeat but a reaction and after a very, very difficult night on Friday to come here and play against one of the strongest sides on this planet, you can think about easier challenges to have.

  12. City win comfortably in the end

    Man City 3-1 Southampton

    Manchester City made hard work of their win over Southampton, who were reeling after their 9-0 drubbing in the Premier League.

    Saints were far more assured against the Premier League champions compared to their abysmal display against Leicester, but they couldn’t keepSergio Aguerodown, and the Argentina striker scored trice afterNicolas Otamendiopened the scoring.

    Jack Stephens headed in a late consolation for the visitors, who return to the Etihad – and surely a much stronger City side- in the League on Saturday.

  13. ‘We needed to set up for the weekend match’ – Flores

    Everton 2-0 Watford

    Watford

    Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores: “It was important to see [Domingos] Quina, to see [Sebastian] Prodl, to see [Dimitri] Foulquier, to see many players who are part of the squad. They are not playing too many minutes.

    “If we were able to win here then perfect, if we were not able to win, we need to set up for the next match at the weekend. We need all of them, in our situation we need all of them. The players got some confidence and they will need this for the future.”

    Not sure Flores is quite getting the point of the Carabao Cup….

    SMS Message: Playing the team that romped our league in a Essex Sunday Combination cup final we found ourselves 4-1 down with 18 minutes to go. Two quick goals and a last kick leveller got it to 4-4. I scored one and saved two in the shoot out as we claimed the most outrageous victory.
    Not sure any of us that day will ever forget it! Recreativo Romford FC, remember the name! from Matt, Chelmsford
