Lower-level clubs oust 5 EPL sides in FA Cup: With apologies for posting one of my articles, the Premier League took a bit of a hit, and almost near-annihilation, by lower-level clubs in the FA Cup's fourth round.

With the fight that Brighton put up against Arsenal (and the sorry excuse for a defender that is Andre Santos), there could have been an additional casualty from the EPL.

It was a hazardous weekend for sure. Reds never really jelled, I think all three of Suarez, Sturridge and Borini were too much pure attackers and Sterling wasn't giving much width opposite either while Coates showed why he's still fourth choice behind Carra and why the transfer rumors have us looking to buy a center back.

Norwich losing to Luton Town though, that's just crazy.

Following a club in the Conference (Ebbsfleet), I loved Luton's win. I think Norwich didn't think much of them with the cheap ticket price.

Probably one of the best things The Fiver has produced: a summary of last weekend's upsets, with selected magic and romance ratings. Don't read if you come from Hull.

I'm originally from a small village near Luton and was in town the night of the Millwall riot mentioned on that Fiver article.

I made something like 58 pence in coins that were thrown through our bus window.
