Sum up Philippe Coutinho's season

7/10. That would be higher still if his season had begun in December -- which in a way it did -- but Coutinho did not stand out particularly during Liverpool's awful start to the season. Since they turned it around, of course he has been the star performer.

Should he win Player...

Could Ian Rush, Steve Nicol or Steve McMahon fit into the modern game?

FATV takes you behind the scenes and right into the action with our Blackburn v Liverpool 'Snapshots,' with exclusive tunnel cam and pitch-side highlights.

Comparing players from different eras is always difficult due to the way the game changes from generation to generation.

For many football fans, it doesn't seem that long ago that Diego Maradona was blowing people's minds (and breaking English hearts) with his dazzling and dastardly play in the 1986 World Cup, but incredibly that's almost 30 years ago now. The changes to the game since then have been huge, and not just in terms of the wealth it generates for those involved.

Mario Balotelli to land POTY award as rival fans hijack Liverpool vote

Mario Balotelli has not exactly shone in a Liverpool shirt this season.

As a great man once (sort of) said, there are but three certainties in this life: death, taxes and every interactive online football poll being hijacked by fans of rival clubs.

We're paraphrasing a little there, but you get the gist.

Despite having done little beyond the square root of nothing in a Liverpool shirt all season, there is a good chance Mario Balotelli is to be voted their Player of the Year after -- you guessed it -- fans of rival clubs hijacked the poll on the Reds' official website.

FA Cup semifinals offer plenty of intrigue among the four managers

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Stewart Robson preview Arsenal's FA Cup semifinal with Reading and wonder if the Gunners will repeat the mistakes of last year.

Frustrating fixture scheduling has ensured that the FA Cup semifinals won't be centre stage this weekend. Both ties clash with a notable Premier League contest, which seems a great shame considering that both games have tremendous potential.

There's a nice mixture between a potential giant-killing on Saturday, and an all-Premier League tie on the Sunday. The most interesting battles, however, are taking place in the dugouts.

Arsenal vs. Reading

Saturday's semifinal provides an obvious contrast...

Liverpool shouldn't let FA Cup final chance slip vs. Aston Villa

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Stewart Robson delve into how Aston Villa can cause Liverpool problems in their FA Cup clash.
The ESPN FC panel debate whether or not Liverpool have a chance to usurp Manchester City's spot in fourth in the Premier League.

Liverpool travel to Wembley for the FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa on Sunday as the favourites to win the match. League position, the history between the clubs in knockout matches and the Reds' recent record against all the sides below them in English football all back up the bookmakers on this one but if there's one thing than can scare a Liverpool fan it's a "sure thing" involving their own side.

It's not even as though they see their team as prone to arrogance or complacency. Far from it....

Sherwood vs. Rodgers, Arsenal out to defend trophy - Five FA Cup themes

Arsene Wenger is out to defend his FA Cup trophy.

Wembley Way this weekend will greet fans of four clubs hoping to be back there on May 30 for the final. On Saturday, Championship side Reading attempt to become the first Football League finalists since Cardiff City lost 2008's final to Portsmouth, while holders Arsenal want a repeat of last season when they beat Hull to claim the prize. Meanwhile, Sunday sees Aston Villa and Liverpool find a welcome distraction from their Premier League problems.

Here are five themes to consider.

1. The forgotten...
