Plus the weekends FA Cup results

Once again Fulham have sacked another manager this season, Rene Meulensteen who came in as head coach in November after Martin Jol lost his job has been sacked after only winning 4 of his 17 games in charge. Not only has Meulensteen gone but Alan Curbishley, the first team technical director and Ray Wilkins, assistant head coach who were both only appointed between Christmas and New Year have lost their job also. Felix Magath has been appointed to replace Meulensteen. German Magath has been out of football since leaving Wolfsburg in 2012 but

has twice won the double with Bayern, he also added a third Bundesliga title with Wolfsburg in 2009.

Fulham chairman Shahid Khan had this to say: “With 12 matches remaining, we certainly can no longer post empty results. Action was required.” He added: “Felix is an accomplished manager with multiple honours in the Bundesliga and a hunger to replicate his success with Fulham in the Premier League”.

For me this could cost Fulham this season, with their chances of staying in the Premiership at risk. Has Magath been brought in because the board and Khan have become restless, feeling that immediate action was needed to increase their chances of staying up this season, but with the January transfer window already gone Magath will be unable to strengthen the squad. For me Meulensteen should have been given more time, in his last couple of premier league games he guided Fulham to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford where they played well and in his last game against Liverpool only lost after a last minute penalty. Having already changed his manager this season I’m not sure doing it again was the best idea from Khan, we will just have to see come May.

FA Cup

The FA cup matches on the weekend saw Manchester City and Arsenal beat Chelsea and Liverpool who both beat Manchester City and Arsenal in the premier league a few weeks ago.

Manchester City made sure that they didn’t make the same mistakes again with a 2-0 win over Chelsea at the Etihad on the weekend putting them safely in to the quarter finals of the FA cup. Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri gave them the goals which saw a miserable night for Mourinho and his men. The game was sealed really once Jovetic put City ahead in the 16th minute. Chelsea managed just three efforts at goal in the 90 minutes and with the in-form Eden Hazard hassled by both James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta, the team at the top of the premier league looked like they had run out of ideas and it didn’t take Nasri long after coming on to make sure the result was there’s. City have already booked their place into the Capital one Cup in March at Wembley and they are now just one game away from a return there in an FA Cup semi-final too.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inspired an Arsenal win by scoring and setting up the other as they earned a place in the quarter finals beating Liverpool 2-1. Arsenal led when Oxlade-Chamberlain guided in a loose ball after 16 minutes, the England winger then provided the cross for Lukas Podolski to fire in at the start of the second half.

Liverpool got a goal back when Steven Gerrard fired in a penalty but they couldn’t get a equalising goal, however they thought they should have been awarded another penalty after Oxlade-Chamberlain’s clumsy challenge on Luis Suarez sent the Uruguay international tumbling down. Howard Webb however disagreed and the game carried on much to the dismay of Brendan Rogers and his team.

This win for Arsenal brings them closer to a Wembley final with a chance to win some silverware since their last trophy in the FA cup in 2005.
