Oh, it's absolutely brilliant!

This

is getting better and better!

Chance

0:00:140:00:21

to Cristiano Ronaldo!

History boys,

indeed! The biggest Chelsea

0:00:210:00:29

celebration of the season!

0:00:290:00:37

No team has won its more than

Arsenal.

0:00:370:00:45

Arsenal.

Welcome to Westbridge

Albion. The Hawthorns has been their

0:00:450:00:49

home since 1900. Have a look at the

statue outside the ground. The great

0:00:490:00:54

Tony Brown. 279 goals and played

more games than anyone else, 720.

0:00:540:01:01

They love to remember their heroes

in this part of the world. Another

0:01:010:01:06

man who scored plenty of Brom is the

great Jeff Astle. Famously in every

0:01:060:01:11

single round of the cup in 1968. The

fifth and last time West Brom

0:01:110:01:16

actually won the FA Cup. His gaits

mark the way into this famous old

0:01:160:01:21

ground. He is one of those great

heroes of 68.

Replacing the

0:01:210:01:28

scheduled programme, Association

football. West Bromwich Albion go on

0:01:280:01:34

the sixth round.

Albion have had to

replay every round except one.

Great

0:01:340:01:44

goal by Astle! Here come the Albion

will stop there's going to be a goal

0:01:440:01:51

here! Astle with four. West Bromwich

Albion are going to Wembley.

This is

0:01:510:02:00

what it was all about, the greatest

prize in English football.

0:02:000:02:08

prize in English football.

Jeff

Astle Bangs one in! He's scored in

0:02:080:02:11

every round of the FA Cup.

FA Cup

winners of 1968.

0:02:110:02:19

We are starting in the very modern

dressing room. Things have changed

0:02:190:02:23

since 1968. This is where the

players of today will be getting

0:02:230:02:26

ready to take on Southampton and if

you like your omens, it was exactly

0:02:260:02:31

50 years ago today, the 17 February

1968, that West Brom took on

0:02:310:02:35

Southampton, as they do today. They

drew the game here at the Hawthorns

0:02:350:02:41

and built Dylan attribute in the

Hawthorns. Also that day, they beat

0:02:410:02:45

Liverpool on that cup run to Wembley

and they've also done that this

0:02:450:02:48

season. I suppose from a West Brom

point of view, it could be a good

0:02:480:02:54

weekend ahead. As we walk out

towards the pitch, things could be a

0:02:540:02:58

little bit rosy. But the rest of the

week for West Brom has been

0:02:580:03:02

thoroughly miserable. As we go down

the blue neon steps, we shall be

0:03:020:03:08

talking about the horrific week for

West Brom. We also have all this on

0:03:080:03:11

the programme.

0:03:110:03:14

Can League 2 Coventry

produce more Cup magic?

0:03:140:03:16

We've sent Clem to find out.

0:03:160:03:20

That's part of the history of the

club. In fairness, we'll never be

0:03:200:03:26

allowed to forget about that. We

talk about it on a daily basis at

0:03:260:03:29

breakfast.

0:03:290:03:30

All the action from last

night's two 5th round ties.

0:03:300:03:35

Chelsea took on Hull.

0:03:350:03:40

Also highlights from

Leicester - who took

0:03:400:03:42

on Championship Sheffield United.

0:03:420:03:44

And Ince Junior on Huddersfield's

hopes of beating

0:03:440:03:46

Manchester United...again!

0:03:460:03:49

You always want to play against the

big boys so to get them three times

0:03:490:03:54

in one season, and also decide! Beat

them in the fifth round of the FA

0:03:540:04:01

Cup!

All that on the way as we live

from West Brom. We have three

0:04:010:04:04

guests.

0:04:040:04:06

Three-time FA Cup

winner Martin Keown.

0:04:060:04:08

Alex Scott, who's won

seven women's FA Cups.

0:04:080:04:12

I thought it was nine!

I'm not sure!

0:04:120:04:15

And Leicester assistant manager

Michael Appleton, who has also

0:04:150:04:17

played and coached here.

0:04:170:04:18

We'll get to the football.

0:04:180:04:23

If you've missed the news...

0:04:230:04:26

Four West Brom players -

Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry,

0:04:260:04:28

Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill -

have apologised after allegedly

0:04:280:04:30

stealing a taxi from outside

a fast-food restaurant

0:04:300:04:32

in Barcelona on Thursday.

0:04:320:04:35

The club have released yet another

statement. That is the fourth this

0:04:350:04:40

week the various things. The players

have apologise to everybody

0:04:400:04:43

involved. The club are investigating

the incident which happened during a

0:04:430:04:47

training trip. When you consider

their league position, what else has

0:04:470:04:52

happened this week, with the sacking

of the chairman and the Chief

0:04:520:04:56

Executive, the football isn't the

normal West Brom standard of late.

0:04:560:04:59

This is the worst possible timing,

isn't it?

It's possibly as low as

0:04:590:05:03

the club has been for many years

will stop you look at the reaction

0:05:030:05:07

since Pardew has been there, only

one victory. They lost at the

0:05:070:05:12

beginning of the week, the wisdom of

going away that week, they've got

0:05:120:05:15

the FA Cup at the end of the week,

I'm not sure why they were away. And

0:05:150:05:20

they are new players, you'd expect

far better from them, than to be

0:05:200:05:23

involved in this situation. Unlike

other weeks when it's the normal

0:05:230:05:26

week and they don't look forward to

the games because the form has been

0:05:260:05:28

bad, they are really looking forward

to the game.

Is desperate to get it

0:05:280:05:31

out of the way. The players are

responsible, but does it show the

0:05:310:05:38

perils of a mid-season trip and what

can go wrong, even though you want

0:05:380:05:40

to take a break? That's what Alan

Pardew wanted to do, get their mind

0:05:400:05:45

off things and come back and focus

on the FA Cup.

It certainly has

0:05:450:05:50

benefits, no doubt. Teams have used

it in the past and be very

0:05:500:05:53

successful. They've gone fantastic

mums when they come on. The most

0:05:530:05:58

important thing is the game today

couldn't come any quicker. The fact

0:05:580:06:03

that they've got an opportunity

today to play football, to get

0:06:030:06:06

people talking about West Brom

Albion in a positive light, that'll

0:06:060:06:10

be the single most important thing

that Alan and the rest of the team

0:06:100:06:14

are talking about.

Shall we hear

from the manager? Alan Pardew didn't

0:06:140:06:17

want to talk about in their day, but

he said this in the press

0:06:170:06:21

Conference.

It wasn't what we

wanted. We've gone there to try and

0:06:210:06:27

get ourselves up and ready for this

run in and this is obviously not

0:06:270:06:31

ideal. They break curfew and that's

unacceptable I feel bit let down by

0:06:310:06:39

that. But we've still got our

training in. Our focus now is on the

0:06:390:06:43

game. We've only been back since

1:30pm, so we trained and came

0:06:430:06:51

straight here.

In terms of the

message to the players, it makes it

0:06:510:06:54

simple by them. Everyone is talking

about us for the wrong reasons,

0:06:540:06:57

let's make sure it's for the right

reasons after this game against

0:06:570:07:01

Southampton.

Yes, the fact is those

four players have a point to prove

0:07:010:07:05

today. This team them. Alan Pardew

will be disappointed by them because

0:07:050:07:10

sometimes you can't win with

players. You give them leeway,

0:07:100:07:13

freedom, and think they'll respected

and show some trust back and then

0:07:130:07:16

they go and do something like that.

You feel let down as the team, fans

0:07:160:07:19

and a manager. They've got a real

big point to breed.

It'll be

0:07:190:07:23

interesting to see the reaction from

the players and supporters at West

0:07:230:07:26

Brom.

If we look at the game on

Monday, it's been an action packed

0:07:260:07:30

week and started on Monday night. I

thought they played very well in the

0:07:300:07:35

game at times. They played with

three at the back, lost Sturridge,

0:07:350:07:40

another nail in the Coffin you could

say for their season. Rodriguez came

0:07:400:07:45

on and they looks quite decent. They

got beat, OK, but he has to build on

0:07:450:07:50

that. Will he play the same system

today? Ironically Southampton is

0:07:500:07:54

their only win in 14. They came here

recently in the Premier League and

0:07:540:07:57

won. They have problems of their

own. Today is a make or break game

0:07:570:08:02

for West Brom.

You talked about the

game on Monday. If you're a West

0:08:020:08:06

Brom fan, you might want to look

away now.

0:08:060:08:10

A crucial game for both of these

sides.

0:08:100:08:18

sides. Chelsea lead with 24 minutes

gone.

0:08:180:08:21

Lovely little backheel by Fabregas.

He taps it in beautifully. West Brom

0:08:320:08:39

and you didn't take your chances and

you were punished. I wonder what

0:08:390:08:42

he's thinking.

0:08:420:08:48

Brilliant goal! 3-0!

0:08:510:08:53

That was what happened on Monday

night, as Martin said. They are

0:08:570:09:01

seven points adrift of safety at the

bottom if you look at the bottom of

0:09:010:09:04

the Premier League table. All the

stuff that's gone on the pitch, off

0:09:040:09:07

the pitch, and yet they can still

save themselves, from that position?

0:09:070:09:15

It'll be difficult, seven points

adrift with 12 games or so to go.

0:09:150:09:20

They've been used to great escapes

here. I remember being a youth team

0:09:200:09:23

coach when Brian Robson was in

charge day of the season. I think we

0:09:230:09:27

were the bottom at Christmas and I

think it was the first time that

0:09:270:09:30

happened in the Premier League. They

are used to it, there used to great

0:09:300:09:33

great escapes and they need another

one. The guys have touched on the

0:09:330:09:36

team and the squad. I think a lot of

time as what comes together when

0:09:360:09:40

there's a bit of adversity. This

might actually, as a difficult and

0:09:400:09:45

wrong as the situation might be, it

might bring them all together and

0:09:450:09:49

that will be what hopefully Alan was

looking for.

I was going to go for

0:09:490:09:53

your point. They can use this game

today. You put out a strong team,

0:09:530:09:58

get a win, then take the momentum

into the league. It could help.

0:09:580:10:02

Martin, I remember you saying about

the FA Cup that it's quite

0:10:020:10:05

inspirational as one say to a

player, you do not get many chances

0:10:050:10:08

to win this condition. You got to

grab it with both hands. They are

0:10:080:10:11

only one game away from the

quarterfinals.

Ten good

0:10:110:10:17

opportunities if you're lucky, Don

Howe used to say. Today they have to

0:10:170:10:20

do that. Chelsea were quite

magnificent. Hazard was good on the

0:10:200:10:27

evening. He has to build from there.

He's got to look at the likes of

0:10:270:10:32

Swansea. They were five points of

the macro adrift and if Swansea

0:10:320:10:37

can't do it, why can't West Brom?

You have to find the belief.

Lets a

0:10:370:10:42

factor what's happening over the

course of the weekend. Two games

0:10:420:10:45

last night that we've already talked

about. We'll show you all those

0:10:450:10:48

calls.

0:10:480:10:51

-- goals.

0:10:510:10:59

Rochdale against Tottenham is live

on BBC One, as is Wigan and

0:11:060:11:11

Manchester City. That's a repeat of

the 2013 final. This is what

0:11:110:11:16

happened at Stamford Bridge last

night. Martin Fisher was therefore

0:11:160:11:19

us.

0:11:190:11:22

Their first victory against Forest

in the championship. What a shot and

0:11:290:11:35

what a start for Chelsea. And the

returning Brazilian, Willian,

0:11:350:11:47

settles Conte's nerves.

0:11:480:11:53

settles Conte's nerves. The ball is

over the bar. Might have thought he

0:11:530:12:00

was offside, but even so, a glorious

opportunity for him to register his

0:12:000:12:04

first goal for Chelsea.

0:12:040:12:12

first goal for Chelsea. This time,

the Spaniard put it away. Fabregas

0:12:120:12:19

knew what was on.

0:12:190:12:24

Willian takes it on early, and why

not when you can finish like that?

0:12:340:12:38

Quite, quite brilliant from Willian.

0:12:380:12:42

It's in! Olivier Giroud has his

first Chelsea goal and you sense

0:12:500:13:01

they'll be plenty more in Chelsea

blue where that came from.

0:13:010:13:04

Wilson brought down by Fabregas full

stop penalty. Silly challenge by

0:13:150:13:21

Fabregas, just let out a leg. And

Wilson Julie fell over it. It

0:13:210:13:29

the penalty saver extraordinaire

kept out the shoot out kick against

0:13:350:13:41

Nelson Olivero against Norwich in

the third round replay here and

0:13:410:13:47

guessed correctly. It's a strong

parry away and there's still nothing

0:13:470:13:50

for Hull City To celebrate.

0:13:500:13:52

Willian for the hat-trick? Took too

long. Good save. Zappa Costa was so

0:14:080:14:20

unselfish there. He could have taken

the initial shot but knew that

0:14:200:14:24

Willian was in for his hat-trick.

0:14:240:14:29

A good save. An awkward bounce, but

he kept it down.

0:14:300:14:42

Oh, against the post! Well, he was

inches away there from registering

0:14:420:14:49

his first ever hat-trick the

Chelsea. At high long since decided.

0:14:490:14:57

Not quite the gloss that Willian was

looking for.

0:14:570:15:00

If you've just turned on your TV,

we'll talk about that game in a

0:15:000:15:03

moment. We live from West Bromwich

Albion today. Some of the players

0:15:030:15:07

arriving behind us at various points

over the next couple of minutes for

0:15:070:15:11

their game against Southampton. One

of the peculiarities about West

0:15:110:15:14

Brom, the Lord is my shepherd, I'll

not want. He makes me down to lie in

0:15:140:15:20

pastures green, it's a quote of

course from some 23. The reason it's

0:15:200:15:23

there is because West Brom were one

of the very first teams to play

0:15:230:15:26

football on Sunday. The fans used to

go to church in the morning, seeing

0:15:260:15:30

that and then would come back and

try to sing it here, as well and

0:15:300:15:35

still sing it here today. I love a

bit of West Brom history. They are

0:15:350:15:39

steeped in their history and love

those sort of stories. From Chelsea

0:15:390:15:43

point of view, there's been a lot

talk this week about Conte's

0:15:430:15:48

position in the club. They've proved

with competitive victory.

They have

0:15:480:15:54

and from a professional point of

view, I think the Chelsea players

0:15:540:15:56

have certainly done the business.

They started the game is well. Last

0:15:560:16:01

night, the game was over within

probably 25, 30 minutes or so.

0:16:010:16:08

Olivier Giroud off the mark. It is

always nice to get an early goal.

0:16:100:16:14

You had to come to me to talk about

him.

He let Arsenal down. Get over

0:16:140:16:20

it, move on.

0:16:200:16:25

He is a fantastic signing for the

club.

And it is the way he links. He

0:16:250:16:32

scored a great goal. He fed it in

with his left foot. It is almost an

0:16:320:16:38

impossible angle. Arsene Wenger did

not want him to leave and if you

0:16:380:16:41

look at the problem he has left

behind, who is going to score the

0:16:410:16:46

goals for Arsenal?

Danny Welbeck. I

liked the way you both turn it round

0:16:460:16:49

to Arsenal. From the point of

Chelsea, they have got Barcelona,

0:16:490:16:56

Manchester United and Manchester

City. In terms of the way they are

0:16:560:16:59

playing this season, obviously they

won the title last time, where do

0:16:590:17:02

you put Chelsea?

Pretty much where

they are at the minute. I do not see

0:17:020:17:08

them really challenging for the

title. But in terms of Manchester

0:17:080:17:14

United they are close enough to

challenge and the fact they have got

0:17:140:17:19

Manchester City and Manchester

United in the league I think it is a

0:17:190:17:22

bonus for them. Very quickly they

will know what their season is going

0:17:220:17:25

to be about.

If you look at the

Champions League and how the English

0:17:250:17:30

teams performed, great results,

city, Liverpool, the Premier League

0:17:300:17:35

is in good shape. Next week it is

Manchester United as well and

0:17:350:17:40

Chelsea. But they are playing

against Barcelona and for me they

0:17:400:17:43

could be favourites to win it, but

who knows?

Do you want to mention

0:17:430:17:50

Arsenal again? No, it is up to you.

I want to talk about Swansea because

0:17:500:17:55

they play here in April and less

than two months after being sacked

0:17:550:17:59

by Sheffield Wednesday, Carlos

Carbonero has taken over.

0:17:590:18:04

Less than two months after being

sacked by Sheffield Wednesday,

0:18:040:18:06

Carlos Carvalhal is returning

to Hillsborough with Swansea.

0:18:060:18:08

Alistair Mann's there

for Match Of The Day.

0:18:080:18:10

He returns to the club who did not

really want to sack him. In the end

0:18:100:18:16

on Christmas eve Sheffield

Wednesday's slide down the table had

0:18:160:18:19

become alarming. His successor has

inherited the same list of

0:18:190:18:25

absentees, but the boost of a new

manager has helped Wednesday with

0:18:250:18:29

clearer of the relegation zone. The

hosts have prioritised league

0:18:290:18:34

survival and have made six changes

to the side which beat Derby on

0:18:340:18:38

Tuesday. The Swans have also made

changes of their own, but whether

0:18:380:18:42

they like it or not, one of these

two sides will have an FA Cup

0:18:420:18:46

quarterfinal to prepare for in a

month's time. He had a good time

0:18:460:18:52

with Sheffield Wednesday. It will be

interesting to see the reception he

0:18:520:19:01

gets from the fans.

He led them to

two play-offs, so there has to be

0:19:010:19:05

some form of respect for him. What

he has done at Swansea has been

0:19:050:19:10

magnificent. He is such a character

and he has changed the belief and

0:19:100:19:15

confidence in that team. He has not

changed much tactically, it is about

0:19:150:19:19

the belief in the Swansea team. Even

though he has changed the line-up,

0:19:190:19:24

he did that in the Notts County game

and those players stepped up and I

0:19:240:19:33

am sure they will do the same.

Is it

more of a mood change at Swansea

0:19:330:19:36

rather than a tactical switch?

I

think that can happen when a new

0:19:360:19:39

manager comes in. We played them a

few weeks ago recently and they

0:19:390:19:43

defended a little bit deeper. They

are very much a five - four - one

0:19:430:19:50

and they are making it very

difficult for teams to play in

0:19:500:19:52

between them and around them.

It is

all about results.

And he has

0:19:520:20:00

already picked up more points in his

games and wins than Paul Clement did

0:20:000:20:06

in his 23.

And his players are

talking glowingly about him. He

0:20:060:20:09

loves his players and they love him

and it shows the mood change. But

0:20:090:20:14

winning games is what it is all

about.

Did you ever seen a line in

0:20:140:20:17

one of the FA Cup Arsenal games? I

may have done. Do you remember this

0:20:170:20:25

from 1987? Chas and Dave. Everybody

knows we are the football

0:20:250:20:31

connoisseurs. The hotshot Tottenham.

Remember that?

You clearly do. But

0:20:310:20:38

it did not work, they did not win it

that year. This time the League 2

0:20:380:20:44

side are in round five for the first

time in five years.

0:20:440:20:51

This time around the League 2 side

are in round 5 for this

0:20:510:20:55

1st time in 5 years...

0:20:550:20:56

They face Premier League Brighton

on the south coast.

0:20:560:20:58

Mark Clemmit's been to Coventry,

in search of an upse.

0:20:580:21:00

Since their third round win at Stoke

their league form has plummeted,

0:21:000:21:04

their promotion campaign is in

danger of stagnating and after a

0:21:040:21:07

third consecutive defeat I think it

is very to say their manager was not

0:21:070:21:11

very happy. Are you all right? You

did have quite a pop at the boys.

I

0:21:110:21:19

did in midweek. No, they are all

right, they are in decent spirits.

0:21:190:21:25

We can put it to bed and concentrate

on this game and leave the league

0:21:250:21:30

stuff until after this one is

finished.

It is in!

The FA Cup has

0:21:300:21:39

been a big thing for us. The

importance of the game against Stoke

0:21:390:21:44

was big. The support we had was

magnificent. We have sold out our

0:21:440:21:48

allocation for the Brighton game and

the supporters are coming in number

0:21:480:21:53

away from home wherever we go.

You

are good for a bit of FA Cup

0:21:530:21:57

archive. This goal of yours,

seriously, some of these guys have

0:21:570:22:01

never seen it.

Some of them were not

born.

Do you ever watch it back?

No.

0:22:010:22:10

On the Internet?

No, never.

You

should be proud of it.

Yes, I am

0:22:100:22:19

proud of it, but I never Google

myself.

You never use it as part of

0:22:190:22:27

the inspiration for the players?

It

is part of the history. We talk

0:22:270:22:33

about it on a daily basis.

It comes

up all the time, I never mention it,

0:22:330:22:39

but people think I do.

That

connection is important, they know

0:22:390:22:44

they are part of this history.

They

could see how potentially this club

0:22:440:22:49

and how big it could be. It has got

a good tradition and good history

0:22:490:22:53

and hopefully we can get some of

that back.

What is it with you? Two

0:22:530:23:03

years in a row in the last 16 of the

cup. It happened last year as well.

0:23:030:23:08

We are very lucky. Last year it was

Arsenal. This year it is Stoke and

0:23:080:23:15

Brighton, so I am happy for that,

but we have to win now.

0:23:150:23:23

but we have to win now.

I am going

to trip him for that.

Where we were

0:23:240:23:31

last year, the strides we have made

both on and off the field in terms

0:23:310:23:34

of the infrastructure and what we

are going to survive makes it an

0:23:340:23:38

already impressive season. They have

secured the club for another 12

0:23:380:23:43

months and we will look forward to

that. We want to pick our wits

0:23:430:23:47

against the better teams and

Brighton are very good team. We want

0:23:470:23:52

to compete and not go down there.

They will go with a full hit or give

0:23:520:23:58

one or two of the squad players and

one of them costs 14 million and

0:23:580:24:02

that is the difference between the

teams. We are just going to knuckle

0:24:020:24:08

down, stick together and see the

season over, but we have got a good

0:24:080:24:12

team, we know we can.

0:24:120:24:22

When you were Oxford boss, you beat

some of the bigger teams. Any advice

0:24:220:24:26

for Coventry and Mr Robbins?

It is

certainly again where there is no

0:24:260:24:33

pressure. Mark broke my heart last

year in the Czech trader trophy. I

0:24:330:24:42

was not going to bring that up. No,

they can relax, they can showcase

0:24:420:24:47

their skills against a top side in

the Premier League and obviously

0:24:470:24:55

they will take that opportunity.

It

is a good day to enjoy it.

Yes, but

0:24:550:25:00

there are pressure situations.

Brighton will be looking forward to

0:25:000:25:05

that one. Chris Hughton has been

talking about this fixture. Coventry

0:25:050:25:09

deserve a bit of luck because of

what they have been through over the

0:25:090:25:13

last few years.

We need another

guest.

0:25:130:25:15

We need another guest.

0:25:150:25:17

Darren Moore is West Brom's 1st team

coach and also made over 100

0:25:170:25:20

appearances for the Baggies

as a player.

0:25:200:25:23

Look at the size of him! It has been

a tough week for the club. The guys

0:25:230:25:29

were saying when we started the

programme that the win is important

0:25:290:25:33

today. It is important to move on

and draw a line under things.

Yes,

0:25:330:25:37

that is what we are looking at

today. It is all about the fifth

0:25:370:25:41

round. You have got two teams

competing to get into the

0:25:410:25:45

quarterfinals. It will be a packed

stadium and we want to put in the

0:25:450:25:50

right performance today and come

away with the right result.

We were

0:25:500:25:53

at the other end of the stadium and

I saw you trying to pounce on the FA

0:25:530:25:58

Cup. I know it means a lot to you.

What does it mean to the modern-day

0:25:580:26:02

Premier club footballer?

It means a

lot for the lads because the

0:26:020:26:07

furthest they have ever got two was

the quarterfinals and we played to

0:26:070:26:11

Fulham and we lost 1-0. That is the

furthest we have ever got. So to

0:26:110:26:17

come in in the coaching side and the

opportunity to possibly get to the

0:26:170:26:21

quarterfinals would be the right

result today. It means everything.

0:26:210:26:26

With the final 11 Premier League

games looming after this one, it can

0:26:260:26:31

be the right momentum for the

supporters and the club if we get

0:26:310:26:34

the right result today.

You used to

share a dressing room together. I

0:26:340:26:40

want a real insight into what you

were like in the dressing room.

0:26:400:26:42

Michael?

To be fed Darren is pretty

much what most people think, a big,

0:26:420:26:51

Gentle giant. But he has got a dark

side to him that I have seen a few

0:26:510:26:56

times. Clinton Morrison knows about

that. But I cannot tell you the

0:26:560:27:01

story.

Clinton will know what I am

talking about. You can't leave it

0:27:010:27:05

like that exploration Mark would you

like to return the favour?

I was

0:27:050:27:10

gutted because we were team-mates,

but we were not roommates. They say

0:27:100:27:20

he makes an unbelievable cup of tea.

So I was not able to sample his cup

0:27:200:27:25

of tea. But he was competitive in

midfield and we were great friends

0:27:250:27:30

on the pitch and we still remain

good friends off the pitch and it is

0:27:300:27:35

a lifetime friendship.

That is nice

to hear. There was a passionate man

0:27:350:27:40

embrace when you saw each other

today. We are talking about the

0:27:400:27:44

position that West Brom find

themselves in, but you were involved

0:27:440:27:48

in the great escape in 2005. Do you

think that a finish like that is

0:27:480:27:58

required again for West Brom to stay

in this division?

Definitely. It

0:27:580:28:02

feels almost exactly the same. We

were bottom at Christmas and down

0:28:020:28:09

and out and we just decided to get

together and just have a really good

0:28:090:28:13

go. That is what is needed today. We

know the situation we find ourselves

0:28:130:28:18

in with this cup match here and

afterwards still seven points

0:28:180:28:23

adrift. It will have to take a run

of games and result like that to get

0:28:230:28:26

out of it, but we are capable of

doing it.

You said it took you guys

0:28:260:28:31

coming together to get out of it. Do

you feel you have got the characters

0:28:310:28:34

here that Campbell together, and say

we can do this?

Absolutely, I feel

0:28:340:28:42

that is what we have got year with

the group of guys. It is what is

0:28:420:28:46

required and needed and we need each

other, the staff, players,

0:28:460:28:51

supporters, everybody is needed

today. Everybody coming here today

0:28:510:28:55

and for the remainder of the season

can play their part and that is how

0:28:550:28:58

we are looking at it today. You are

right. I feel we have got the

0:28:580:29:03

players to do it. They believe. One

thing, the performances have been

0:29:030:29:10

there, but the results have not come

with it. I want a performance today.

0:29:100:29:15

If you can get a performance, you

are in a chance of getting the right

0:29:150:29:20

result. The performances have been

there.

I bet you wish you were

0:29:200:29:23

playing today.

I said earlier, I am

happily retired.

Just to sort things

0:29:230:29:32

out for the club.

Obviously having

the experience and with the guys

0:29:320:29:39

here now, you know what is required

out there today, the type of

0:29:390:29:43

performance and the type of messages

that need to go on the pitch. Just

0:29:430:29:49

having that experience I would love

to be out there today.

If they can

0:29:490:29:53

get out of trouble from this, it

would be the greatest escape. From

0:29:530:29:57

the outside it looks as if they are

doomed. There has been no reaction

0:29:570:30:02

from Alan Pardew. It might be their

only way. Wigan went down a few

0:30:020:30:06

years ago having one the FA Cup.

That might be the dream for West

0:30:060:30:12

Bromwich Albion, but today is more

about pride.

You give the pre-match

0:30:120:30:18

team talk, not Martin. Lovely to

have you on the programme.

0:30:180:30:26

All this still to come before one:

Ince Junior on Huddersfield's hopes

0:30:260:30:28

of upsetting Mourinho's men.

0:30:280:30:31

Rochdale's Joe Thompson

on beating cancer twice.

0:30:310:30:34

And we'll be at Wigan as they eye

a repeat of this Ben Watson goal.

0:30:340:30:42

This week also saw the verdict

in the case of former football

0:30:460:30:49

coach Barry Bennell,

who will be sentenced on Monday

0:30:490:30:55

for 50 child sex offences.

0:30:550:30:59

We know the details are horrible.

0:30:590:31:01

Bennell worked with Manchester City

and Crewe Alexandra's youth teams

0:31:010:31:04

and was convicted of abusing 11 boys

aged 8 to 15 between 1979 and 1990.

0:31:040:31:10

People of all ages watch the

programme, so you might find some of

0:31:100:31:14

what you're about to see and hear

disturbing.

0:31:140:31:18

Barry Bennell, once described as a

brilliant and influential coach, now

0:31:260:31:30

a convicted paedophile.

0:31:300:31:36

a convicted paedophile. In the early

1980s, Bennell coached at various

0:31:360:31:41

youth teams that had links to

Manchester City. It is reported he

0:31:410:31:45

even abused boys on the Main Road

pitch.

0:31:450:31:51

In 1985, Bennell left city to coach

in Crewe Alexandra's Junior system,

0:31:580:32:02

where he

0:32:020:32:10

where he raped and molested

countless boys at the club. However

0:32:100:32:17

it wasn't until a tour of the USA

that Bennell was arrested and

0:32:170:32:22

subsequently convicted of abusing a

13-year-old British boy. He was

0:32:220:32:25

jailed for four years.

0:32:250:32:31

jailed for four years. In a

broadcast of Channel 4's Dispatches

0:32:320:32:35

programme, a former youth player

waived his right to anonymity and

0:32:350:32:41

said he was sexually abused I

Bennell. Bennell pleaded guilty in

0:32:410:32:46

June 19 eight -- 1998 relating to 15

complaints aged between nine and 14.

0:32:460:32:56

He was sentenced to nine years in

prison. In 2015, he once again

0:32:560:33:03

pleaded guilty. This time for

abusing a 12-year-old boy in 1980.

0:33:030:33:08

He was jailed for two years. In

November 2016, and it would waived

0:33:080:33:14

his right to anonymity, speaking

about the abuse he was subjected to.

0:33:140:33:20

This led to many more victims coming

forward. This week at Liverpool

0:33:200:33:26

Crown Court, Barry Bennell was found

guilty of 50 counts of child sexual

0:33:260:33:30

abuse against 11 victims. This isn't

expected to be the end of the story,

0:33:300:33:36

as further incidents of abuse are

reported to the police.

0:33:360:33:43

I think it's important to remember

the job that Daniel Taylor of the

0:33:430:33:48

garden did indeed telling those

accounts and there's been so much

0:33:480:33:51

admiration for those who passed by

their anonymity and have spoken in

0:33:510:33:56

the past.

0:33:560:33:58

Andy Woodward, Steve

Walters, Chris Unsworth.

0:33:580:34:02

Chris said...

0:34:020:34:04

He ruined my childhood,

he ruined my dream,

0:34:040:34:06

but he won't ruin my life.

0:34:060:34:09

BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone

is here with me in the press

0:34:090:34:12

room at the Hawthorns.

0:34:120:34:13

Nice to see you here. There is the

possibility of civil action to be

0:34:130:34:21

taken against Crewe Alexandra and

Manchester City. What has the

0:34:210:34:24

response been?

0:34:240:34:28

Both clubs have offered their

heartfelt sympathies to the victims

0:34:280:34:32

in this truly, truly awful case.

However, tellingly, neither club has

0:34:320:34:37

offered an apology as yet. For

Manchester City's parts, they

0:34:370:34:43

instigated a review in November

2016, led by a leading lawyer, to

0:34:430:34:49

unearth whether Barry Bennell used

them as a cover almost for the awful

0:34:490:34:56

actions that he then undertook.

We

can see the statement on the screen.

0:34:560:35:01

Manchester City say they've

unearthed the name of one other

0:35:010:35:06

person, who is now deceased, whose

behaviour also gives them a huge

0:35:060:35:11

cause for concern, John Broome.

Because this review goes back 50

0:35:110:35:17

years, they've not completed it yet

-- 30 years. For Crewe Alexandra,

0:35:170:35:24

they say at no point before they

appointed Bennell where they made

0:35:240:35:28

aware of any sexual misconduct

allegations against Bennell and they

0:35:280:35:33

weren't made aware of this during

his time at the club, either.

To

0:35:330:35:37

bring this up to the modern day, a

lot of parents will be watching

0:35:370:35:40

today, thinking of taking their

children to football. There are

0:35:400:35:43

genuine concerns but it's worth

saying there have been real changes

0:35:430:35:46

made in the safeguarding of children

today.

That's right. The FA have

0:35:460:35:51

been very keen to stress the

safeguarding issue is one they've

0:35:510:35:53

been dealing with over a decade now.

They've been working with the NSPCC

0:35:530:36:00

for 16 years on safeguarding.

They've got 300,000 people go

0:36:000:36:06

through their safeguarding

procedures every year in terms of

0:36:060:36:08

dealing with children and also any

club who has players who are aged 18

0:36:080:36:12

and under, they all have to have a

safeguarding officer who has to be

0:36:120:36:18

checked for a criminal record and

things like that to make sure they

0:36:180:36:21

are safe to work with children.

Thank you very much for that and

0:36:210:36:25

there'll be plenty more coverage

over the coming days and next week.

0:36:250:36:30

Let's return to the FA

cup 5th round.

0:36:300:36:35

Rochdale, who are bottom

of League One, have a game

0:36:350:36:37

against Tottenham tomorrow

afternoon.

0:36:370:36:38

It's live on BBC One.

0:36:380:36:40

Joe Thompson is back playing

for Rochdale after recovering

0:36:400:36:42

from cancer for a second time.

0:36:420:36:45

I was on 24-hour chemotherapy. Those

weeks felt long and then I was

0:36:490:36:57

basically locked in a room, solitary

confinement. You're in a box. At the

0:36:570:37:03

start of that, you're given what I

would say is probably the most

0:37:030:37:05

potent chemotherapy you can have and

it was torture. And then that's

0:37:050:37:12

where you come across the emotional

side of things and the psychology

0:37:120:37:16

side of things and it was testing

and it did test my sanity. I luckily

0:37:160:37:23

managed to get out after 18 days. I

could barely walk and when I did get

0:37:230:37:31

myself out, a little bit of breeze

on my skin, I literally felt like a

0:37:310:37:34

free man. Not everyone has beaten

cancer so I'm very, very lucky.

0:37:340:37:40

Crossing the white line is something

that I hope to do again even though

0:37:400:37:46

I wasn't guaranteed to do -- hoped

to do. I've would so hard and

0:37:460:37:54

sacrificed so much and gone through

so much pain to get out there and I

0:37:540:37:57

know every day is a blessing. Being

out on a football pitch is where I

0:37:570:38:00

feel free and can forget about

everything and just go and enjoy

0:38:000:38:03

competing.

0:38:030:38:08

More from Job tomorrow and my

favourite stat of the week is that

0:38:080:38:11

sales of tinfoil in Rochdale have

gone up 500% this week in

0:38:110:38:14

preparation for the game against

Tottenham. This man doesn't need the

0:38:140:38:19

tinfoil because he's lifted the real

thing. Graham Williams, the captain

0:38:190:38:23

of that site in 1968. Can you give

us some memory of that day? We've

0:38:230:38:28

already talked about it in the

programme but what was it like for

0:38:280:38:30

you?

The build-up to the FA Cup,

because we should have gone out in

0:38:300:38:36

the first round. We played

Colchester and they scored a goal in

0:38:360:38:38

the last minute and we didn't know

what it was disallowed for. When we

0:38:380:38:45

walked off, what was that for? We

walked off and it was always the

0:38:450:38:51

games coming up, and we always drew

the top teams. Southamptons,

0:38:510:38:58

Portsmouths. Liverpool three times.

We never thought we could get beaten

0:38:580:39:03

because of the first game with

Colchester. We got our name on the

0:39:030:39:07

Kop.

He felt it was that season?

We

did.

Tony Brown at the other end of

0:39:070:39:13

the press room, I know you'll say

nice things, but you played with

0:39:130:39:17

him, you played with Jeff Astle. We

highlighted him in the programme

0:39:170:39:22

already full stop what was it like

to play with players like that who

0:39:220:39:25

provided so much to the team?

Well,

they were good. First of all, they

0:39:250:39:29

were good. But we forget also about

Little Jimmy Clark. A winger, 29

0:39:290:39:36

goals will stop his assists for Jeff

and Tony were unbelievable. We had a

0:39:360:39:42

forward line that everyone was

frightened of. Jeff had favourite

0:39:420:39:46

teams. If he was injured he would

want to play against those teams

0:39:460:39:50

because he would always score. He'd

tell you before the game, don't

0:39:500:39:54

worry, lads, I'd get a goal today.

Bomber, his marker, would follow up.

0:39:540:40:04

I can imagine it was fantastic.

We're sitting where ands Alan Pardew

0:40:040:40:08

will sit after the game today. We've

got the pictures of you lifting the

0:40:080:40:13

trophy in 1968, can you believe it's

been 50 years since West Brom have

0:40:130:40:17

got anywhere near it?

Yes!

LAUGHTER

0:40:170:40:20

I'm selfish.

What you're saying is

you never want West Brom to win it

0:40:200:40:27

again.

Well... We've been in a

couple of situations where we should

0:40:270:40:32

have been there and we lost the

semifinal and things like that. The

0:40:320:40:37

following year, 1969, I would have

thought we had the better side. I

0:40:370:40:42

wasn't in it but we had a better

side. We got beaten by Leicester at

0:40:420:40:46

Sheffield Wednesday and I thought

that was a better side. We were

0:40:460:40:49

always expected to be in the cup

final. In fact, a quote from our

0:40:490:40:53

chairman... You bloody lot, I'm fed

up of coming to Wembley! Any time

0:40:530:41:02

you won the league... And I had to

respond to that after we were in the

0:41:020:41:10

Park Lane Hotel. He said, you bloody

lot!

Is there ever a happy chairman?

0:41:100:41:16

Lovely to speak to you, thank you. I

like your honesty. You said you're

0:41:160:41:21

very proud and happy to be last West

Brom captain... Going to show you

0:41:210:41:26

some more goals from last night's

game. Leicester and Sheffield

0:41:260:41:30

United.

0:41:300:41:39

Lovely ball to Jamie Vardy and

Vardy, just past the post.

0:41:490:41:54

Good save. Sheffield United getting

bodies forward. Headed up by Simpson

0:42:050:42:19

and an excellent challenge by

Maguire prevents Stevens from giving

0:42:190:42:23

the championship side the lead.

0:42:230:42:25

Vardy! And Jamie Vardy puts

Leicester City ahead. Mahrez had the

0:42:420:42:50

vision to pick him out and Vardy had

the resize finish. 1-0.

0:42:500:43:00

Just past the post!

0:43:010:43:11

It's in and... What a save from

Schmeichel! All that effort and

0:43:140:43:22

Schmeichel reacting so well.

0:43:220:43:29

Vardy in but the flag is up. In the

end, the Premier League class is

0:43:290:43:37

told and it sees them through to the

quarterfinals.

0:43:370:43:39

A smiling Jamie Vardy. If you are

just joining us, we live on BBC Two

0:43:430:43:50

today because the Wintel and is on

BBC One. We live from West Brom

0:43:500:43:54

Gabby and we've Mr Michael Appleton

with us. How important is the cup

0:43:540:44:00

run for Leicester? Quite a few

changes in the season.

It's

0:44:000:44:06

important. When you're one of those

sides outside the top six of the

0:44:060:44:09

Premier League, that we find

ourselves in, the cup competition is

0:44:090:44:12

going to be really important. The

fact that now we've got a

0:44:120:44:17

quarterfinal place, it'd be

interesting to see how we pull out

0:44:170:44:20

the act to night. You realise at

that point you're only one game away

0:44:200:44:26

from Wembley.

Riyad Mahrez setup

Jamie Vardy for that goal. How easy

0:44:260:44:30

or difficult has it been

reintegrating into the team?

Very

0:44:300:44:34

easy.

Not a problem at all?

Very

easy. The manager has handled the

0:44:340:44:39

situation very well. The way he's

dealt with it with you guys, etc.

0:44:390:44:43

Riyad has come in, given his apology

to the players, crack on with

0:44:430:44:48

training. There hasn't been a major

issue and I think his performance

0:44:480:44:53

last night pretty much answers those

questions.

Wee dog about your time

0:44:530:44:56

at West Brom and you were manager

here for one game!

0:44:560:45:00

LAUGHTER

I don't want to bring up painful

0:45:000:45:03

memories but was it 3-0 at

half-time?

It was an eventful game

0:45:030:45:09

but probably will be remembered more

for what happened at half-time and

0:45:090:45:12

the end of the game. We got wind

that the manager at the time was

0:45:120:45:18

asked to sit down politely, I'm not

too sure. But Scots was very

0:45:180:45:22

influential as a player and

certainly made the difference at

0:45:220:45:25

half-time for us on that day.

24

that memory! Manchester United stand

0:45:250:45:31

in the way of Huddersfield getting

to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup

0:45:310:45:35

this weekend. Paul Ince won the cup

twice with managers United. His son

0:45:350:45:40

Thomas will be taking to the pitch

for the Terriers this weekend. We've

0:45:400:45:43

been spending a bit of time with

Ince junior.

0:45:430:45:51

Last weekend, there was a demolition

of Bournemouth.

The way we played on

0:45:550:46:03

Sunday was the best we had played

all season and it is a great time to

0:46:030:46:06

be doing it.

This is looking

promising for Huddersfield. And they

0:46:060:46:11

have scored! And it is in! And it is

swept in right on cue.

0:46:110:46:27

swept in right on cue. And

Huddersfield town get their first

0:46:270:46:29

victory of 2018.

When we are at home

it is a fortress and the fans get

0:46:290:46:37

behind us.

Tell us what that game at

the weekend meant because afterwards

0:46:370:46:43

there were so many pictures of the

team together. That shows how great

0:46:430:46:47

the boys are as a unit.

Yes, that is

what I noticed the first time I

0:46:470:46:52

walked in the dressing room, the

unity. You get that from the fans

0:46:520:46:57

and the town itself. When you walk

out there all the fans want to see

0:46:570:47:00

you try and do the best for your

team. But Saturday is an exciting

0:47:000:47:06

time. We played Manchester United

three times this year. You always

0:47:060:47:09

want to play with the big boys.

Tom

Ince, and kept out by David De Gea.

0:47:090:47:18

Huddersfield in front!

0:47:180:47:24

Huddersfield in front! A mistake by

Linda Love. 2-0. And Huddersfield

0:47:270:47:31

are ripping up the script here.

It

is a decider as well. There is no

0:47:310:47:41

better way to do it than to beat

them in the final of an FA Cup.

Can

0:47:410:47:45

you remember what you were doing on

the 13th of February 92?

Look how

0:47:450:47:53

cute you are. I remember the horse.

I have still got the horse. My mum

0:47:530:48:02

is not going to be happy with these.

0:48:020:48:08

We have got some clips of your dad.

He is saying, I am an old man, but

0:48:140:48:26

it is always nice to see your dad

playing at such massive games and

0:48:260:48:30

achieving such great things.

0:48:300:48:36

achieving such great things.

And it

is a goal.

I did not think he could

0:48:360:48:39

do that to be fair. He went from a

tackler to be a goal-scorer. I

0:48:390:48:45

looked at the stats and it was about

eight goals in six years. Then I

0:48:450:48:51

thought you just need to worry about

the tackling and give it to the

0:48:510:48:54

money men which is what we called

them. He has always said I have got

0:48:540:49:00

more skill than him, but he has said

he is stronger than I am mentally, a

0:49:000:49:05

lot more aggressive. I said, yes

that is fine, you can have that one.

0:49:050:49:11

There are always comparisons and

that is what has helped me in my

0:49:110:49:14

career. I am a different player to

him, a different position, different

0:49:140:49:19

mentality. I am sure in years to

come we will look back together.

You

0:49:190:49:23

are forging your own career now

which is what you need to do.

Yes,

0:49:230:49:29

it you have to accept that is where

you are and I am proud of the name

0:49:290:49:33

on the back of my shirt and I have

to make my own pathway in the game.

0:49:330:49:39

Young Tom Ince is hoping for a great

weekend in the FA Cup. We are at the

0:49:390:49:44

Hawthorns. We are with another

father who has a son playing

0:49:440:49:49

football, Ngaio Keown. How where is

he of the burden of your name?

I

0:49:490:49:56

don't know if it is a burden. You

have got to use it to your advantage

0:49:560:50:00

if you can. He has got his own

reputation playing in Scotland,

0:50:000:50:05

enjoying himself up there. It is a

good place to go for young players

0:50:050:50:09

to develop. He is improving all the

time, but he is his own man. He is

0:50:090:50:15

an intelligent boy. Every time he is

out on the pitch I wish I could be

0:50:150:50:19

out there for him, but you have to

step aside. You equip them to

0:50:190:50:25

survive. You cannot be in their ear

every five minutes. It looks like

0:50:250:50:31

Tom Ince is getting his career back

on track. He has gone to quite a few

0:50:310:50:36

clubs and he has got a platform to

build on. He is not fulfilling the

0:50:360:50:41

ability he had at the beginning of

his career. He has to find that

0:50:410:50:44

balance. At the beginning when he

was at Blackpool he was immense.

0:50:440:50:48

What about you?

I had parents who

did not have a clue about football

0:50:480:50:55

and it was worse when you came home

and you lost the game and my mother

0:50:550:50:59

would say, it is only a game. It is

the worst thing you could say.

We

0:50:590:51:04

finished second. What about the game

today taking on Manchester United?

0:51:040:51:10

No Paul Pogba for Manchester United,

he is ill.

Again it is an

0:51:100:51:15

opportunity for them to progress.

They will see it as a good

0:51:150:51:19

opportunity. The fact they can get

encouragement in that they have

0:51:190:51:24

already got a win over Manchester

United, so they know the ingredients

0:51:240:51:27

it will take to get through. It is

an opportunity to get to the

0:51:270:51:32

quarterfinal of an FA Cup. I have

been in the quarterfinal.

Jose

0:51:320:51:40

Mourinho is bristling this week. He

knows it is coming to that time of

0:51:400:51:44

the season where it is about winning

trophies and he is a serial winner

0:51:440:51:48

of trophies and he will want to win.

Maybe he has not won it as often as

0:51:480:51:54

Alex. Look at the medals she has

got.

0:51:540:52:05

Hull midfielder Ryan Mason midfield

who fractured his goal

0:52:050:52:07

last January in a clash of heads

with Chelsea's Gary Cahill, has

0:52:070:52:10

announced his retirement

from football.

0:52:100:52:18

And he finished that really well.

Ryan Mason makes his debut.

0:52:300:52:41

Mason drives it in. It took a

deflection and it is in!

To Mason, a

0:52:460:52:55

flowing move. Onside, Ryan Mason. He

scores for Tottenham Hotspur.

0:52:550:53:03

Sad news for Ryan Mason, only 26.

You retired at the age of 27, it is

0:53:090:53:16

a reassessment of everything you

have done in your career up to that

0:53:160:53:18

point.

It is a difficult moment. The

last time I kicked a ball in anger

0:53:180:53:25

was 25. I did two years of rehab and

coming to the inevitable. I know

0:53:250:53:30

what he is going through now. I have

got an understanding of how

0:53:300:53:36

difficult the next 12 months will

be, but a couple of clubs he has

0:53:360:53:41

already played for have come out and

said they will help him because he

0:53:410:53:44

will need that help.

Mauricio

Pochettino has said, our door is

0:53:440:53:51

open, you are a young man. It is a

lovely gesture. But it is a tragedy

0:53:510:53:56

when your career is cut short like

that. Gary Cahill has said he went

0:53:560:54:02

up for a header and this does not

happen very often, but when it does

0:54:020:54:08

it is tragic.

I want to make the

point about Tottenham, West Brom

0:54:080:54:14

with the same for me. I was a

northern lad from Salford, I could

0:54:140:54:19

have easily packed up and gone up

north, but the manager at the time

0:54:190:54:25

encouraged me to stick around and I

ended up doing some of the youth

0:54:250:54:28

teams.

0:54:280:54:30

Wigan's players are

training this morning.

0:54:300:54:32

They play on Monday.

0:54:320:54:33

They face Manchester City,

a repeat of the 2013 FA Cup Final.

0:54:330:54:36

We've sent Eye-O Akinwolere to check

in on preparations this time around.

0:54:360:54:40

We have got two for the price of one

this morning. Dan, let's start with

0:54:400:54:45

you. A brilliant result at West Ham,

but the league form has dipped

0:54:450:54:50

slightly. What has changed?

I cannot

put my finger on it. We have had a

0:54:500:54:56

lot of games, FA Cup replays, we

have got a few more bodies which

0:54:560:55:01

should help, but we have got the big

Manchester City game and we want to

0:55:010:55:06

crack on and get promoted.

How much

of the 2013 game have you watched?

0:55:060:55:11

What can you take from that game?

Obviously it is a massive game for

0:55:110:55:16

the club. It is the underdog story

again, but more this time than it

0:55:160:55:21

was then, but there is stuff all

around the training ground reminding

0:55:210:55:26

us every day when we walk about.

You

already scored two goals against

0:55:260:55:32

West Ham and six goals already in

the FA Cup.

You are enjoying this

0:55:320:55:37

cup? Yes, it has been good for me

this season. If I can carry that on

0:55:370:55:43

on Monday, it would be brilliant. I

have luckily managed to get the

0:55:430:55:48

goals.

A big game, how many people

have asked you for tickets?

Quite a

0:55:480:55:55

lot! It is nice to get the support.

A little bird tells me you drive to

0:55:550:56:01

the training ground together

singing. Who is the better singer?

0:56:010:56:05

It is a no-brainer, I am definitely

the best.

It depends what we are

0:56:050:56:09

listening to, we have got a wide

spectrum of music.

What combination

0:56:090:56:17

are you working on? You are going to

be playing against Sergio Aguero in

0:56:170:56:23

a couple of days.

I am looking

forward to it. You want to play

0:56:230:56:27

against the best players. I said

that in the last round. Manchester

0:56:270:56:32

City really is the best team. You

want to play against the best

0:56:320:56:37

players and prove yourself. It is on

TV so you want to prove yourself to

0:56:370:56:40

everyone.

A little bird tells me

that you were pushing trolleys in

0:56:400:56:46

Darlington. Is it so real that you

are now going to be playing against

0:56:460:56:49

one of the greatest strikers in the

world?

Yes, if you had told me I

0:56:490:56:54

would be doing this back then I

don't know what I would have done.

0:56:540:56:57

It will be a great experience.

A

little birdie tells me there will be

0:56:570:57:03

over 17,000 fans from Wigan at the

game. That extra support must be

0:57:030:57:08

superb.

It is brilliant. We have

seen the history of the club and the

0:57:080:57:14

FA Cup and it makes a big difference

and it will be nice to get the fans

0:57:140:57:18

down for that day. There will be a

great atmosphere.

I have played

0:57:180:57:23

football badly in the past and if I

have not scored after a couple of

0:57:230:57:27

games, how'd you get yourself

prepared for a game like Manchester

0:57:270:57:30

City?

Personally it is nothing

different. If I get the chance to

0:57:300:57:36

score the goals, although it will be

tough, we have to take the chances

0:57:360:57:41

when they come. It is an exciting

game. We will be preparing properly

0:57:410:57:47

and we fancy our chances. We have to

keep on doing what we are doing.

As

0:57:470:57:52

you dare to dream about scoring

against Manchester City yet?

I have,

0:57:520:57:55

yes. This is probably a little bit

of a different task, but we are

0:57:550:58:02

going there wanting to win the game

and score goals.

Thank you very much

0:58:020:58:06

for joining me. I believe in the

dream of the FA Cup. Let's get a

0:58:060:58:11

good one. Have a good time guys. We

all believe in the dream. You took

0:58:110:58:17

on Manchester City with Leicester.

They are frightening?

Yes, no doubt

0:58:170:58:23

about it. They have got so many

influential players in the team.

0:58:230:58:27

Kevin De Bruyne, he is on a

different planet. He sees things

0:58:270:58:31

seconds before everyone else.

Has he

been the most influential player?

0:58:310:58:40

Yes, he affects the game. He is an

artist, his feet are like

0:58:400:58:44

paintbrushes.

What about Wigan?

They

know they are up against it against

0:58:440:58:51

Manchester City, but they have got a

great striker. He has scored six

0:58:510:58:55

already in the competition, said

they will be looking to him.

0:58:550:59:02

And this weekend is your last chance

to sign up for The FA People's Cup -

0:59:050:59:09

the biggest five-a-side competiton.

0:59:090:59:10

The deadline is midnight on Sunday.

0:59:100:59:15
