FA Cup | Macclesfield 0-1 Everton

Macclesfield 0-1 Everton: "Leon Osman's goal on the stroke of half time secured victory for Premier League Everton and sent them into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Osman sent a half-volley into the top corner of the net off the crossbar from 18-yards out after Paul Morgan had headed clear Mikel Arteta's free-kick."

Glad to see Everton get past a potentially awkward tie, you've got to feel for the Macclesfield fans who stayed up all night working to make sure the pitch was playable. 3rd round day is brilliant, love the country-wide drama unfolding for teams and fans at the various levels. It's definitely one of the best days of the year and I hope it's always the case.

Chuffed for Everton and pretty happy for Posh who earned a replay against West Brom...brought back to earth with a bump when checked the rugby scores. Waterloo shipped an absolute shed-load at Launceston. Utter, utter battering...there is just no end in site for the misery. Feel really sorry for everyone associated with the team. It's hardest on them, we are just along for the craic. The lads there are really suffering, just want the season to end really and for us to try and find a sustainable level.
