THE FA Cup resumes this weekend. And it might be fair to say the old competition has enjoyed something of a renaissance this season.
Crowds have been up and, while it’s no longer a top priority for clubs who regularly flirt with the Champions League, for the majority of the other teams and their supporters FA Cup day remains a big day.
Not least because away teams can take thousands more fans, giving more scope for supporters to see their team on the road.
Everton and Liverpool fans might want to pack the thermals this weekend, though.
Bolton and especially Oldham may well be two of the coldest places on earth at this time of year!
