Brilliant atmosphere at St Andrews. 'Sell out' crowd of 22,000.

12000 Coventry fans and about 10,000 Birmingham. Felt like both sets of supporters were away. All stood up all game.
That is a great crowd all things considered.
My mom is a bluenose and my stepdad a skyblue so both will be talking tonight after honours even.

Lovely. I'll take that and we have a chance but my impression is very rarely do the lower league team succeed with a replay. If nothing else it is more cash for the club and hopefully on TV to boost that.

3,710 Oxford there and by the sounds of it had a great time.

As said above good results for Pompey and Coventry.
I honestly expected you to get turned over so that's a great result and more money in the bank with a sell out replay.

We beat Barnsley 4-2 and the result flatters them if anything. They were dreadful at the back and I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing them again in League One next season.
Positivity Don, positivity - hopefully we'll pass by them on our way up! 2 defeats in 21 is nothing to be sniffed at..

Cracking performance today, intense and at Barnsley's throats from the off. Didn't think this would be one of the only times we put a team away, they look in deep trouble.

Does that keeper ever save anything? Each time I see him play everything goes in.
Can't deal with long shots to save his life. We did ok, but well it was to be expected.

Spare a thought for the United fans who spent five minutes moaning about a lack of investment and how they want their United back. Parallel fucking universe for those deluded sods, turning up at a league one club and moaning that spending a billion quid isn't enough?!

Well done Shrewsbury for their comeback - well earned.

Klopp probably won't be happy with a replay or his team but nice of him to give the opposition credit.

Not sure all Premier league managers would have done !

Klopp has class, there’s no doubting that.

Well done Shrews for pulling it back, well on top for the majority of the second half

Money clearly doesn’t buy class, singing songs about Hillsborough and killing Ed Woodward by chopping him into pieces!

I echo that, fantastic effortand great game. When they started to relax at 2-0, you gave them the kick up the backside. Now go and shock them at Anfield, it can be done

Brilliant performance from Shrewsbury. Chances to win it too. Hopefully there is no further interest in Laurent before the end of the transfer window. The replay may just enable us to keep hold of him (and Norburn) as I'm sure they'd want to play at Anfield and we won't need to cash in.

Ricketts certainly knows how to get us to perform in the cup.

Could be a good result for Gillingham and Rochdale too. League perfirmances have been poor after our FA Cup exploits, and players won't want to miss out on the replay against the Liverpool u23s

It looked like a game too far for Tranmere yesterday but there looked a lack of effort to me as well. Couldn't believe how quickly heads dropped either. After a decent start as well.

Admittedly there were some good goals in there.

We made the same mistakes against Spurs last season. Gave them too much space in midfield and ended up with a back line of six players. I guess with a midfield pairing of Danns and Perkins (combined age of 74), who'd played 120 minutes three days prior it was always going to be a tough ask.

We sat too deep after conceding the first goal, but I would not say there was a lack of effort.

I was surprised how many times we managed to get in behind their defence. Ferrier and Blackett Taylor had really good games and gave Dalot and Jones a pretty torrid time.

Great comeback by Oxford - cracking goals.

Can they finish the job?

Very unlucky Shrewsbury.
