FA Cup: Barnsley boss living the dream
Barnsley manager Simon Davey celebrated the best moment of his football career after his side's shock 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Captain Brian Howard scored an injury-time winner after Stephen Foster's header had cancelled out Dirk Kuyt's opener.
'It is very hard to put this into words,' said Davey. 'This is what dreams are made of.
'To bring my team to Anfield, and for them to score the winning goal with the last kick in injury time is wonderful.
'I never played at a high level as a player and this is the height of my coaching career, so it's fair to say that it is the best moment of my football career.'
The defeat heaped more pressure on Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez, but he insisted he was putting it behind him with a now crucial Champions League tie at home against Inter Milan coming up tomorrow.
'I do not think the pressure on me is any different. When you lose there is always pressure,' he said.
'You cannot allow yourself to become down, we have to concentrate and pull together as a team.'
Last year's beaten finalists Manchester United progressed with a resounding 4-0 victory over their Barclays Premier League title rivals Arsenal, who had Emmanuel Eboue sent off.
And manager Sir Alex Ferguson felt it was the perfect response to their derby defeat by Manchester City the previous weekend.
'It was a really fantastic performance. The players looked great. They showed tenacity and the passing was terrific,' he said.
'They were so disappointed with themselves (after losing 2-1 to City) but they've made amends for that with a marvellous performance.'
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was at a loss to explain his side's display.
'It is difficult to find any positives from the performance, apart from the fact we do not have any more injuries,' he said.
'It was difficult. We did not seem to have the physical resources that were needed.
'We were not up to our level. We need to pick ourselves up quickly because we have a massive game on Wednesday and need to be at our best against Milan (in the Champions League).'
Chelsea manager Avram Grant is confident Frank Lampard will stay at Stamford Bridge after he scored twice in the 3-1 victory at home to Huddersfield.
Town's Michael Collins briefly equalised Lampard's opener - the midfielder's 100th for the club - before the England international added a second and Salomon Kalou rounded off the scoring.
Lampard has yet to sign an extension to his current contract and has postponed further talks until the summer, but Grant said: 'The club wants him and he says he wants to stay at the club.
'Everybody agreed they will negotiate in the summer. I think he will stay at Chelsea. I don't see any other scenario.
'I don't think there are many midfielders who can score so many goals.'
Huddersfield manager Andy Ritchie felt his side had been a little star-struck at Stamford Bridge but had nothing but praise for Lampard.
'Lampard is top notch. He has drive and vision and he moves the ball so quickly,' he said.
'But Chelsea pass the ball at a pace. It moves your players around and that's what produces the holes in your defence. Frank was super, he is always going to score goals.
'We were a little bit in awe of them and I think some of our tackles could have been a bit stronger physically.'
Bristol Rovers first-team coach Paul Trollope has told his players to relish their moment in the limelight after the League One side knocked out Championship visitors Southampton thanks to Rickie Lambert's late deflected free-kick.
'There's not many times in the lower leagues you get as far as this so I have told the players to enjoy it,' said the former Wales midfielder.
'As a player I got to the quarter-finals with Derby (in 1997) and we lost to a late Fabrizio Ravanelli goal for Middlesbrough so hopefully I can go one better this time.
'Every penny helps for a club like this. We want to move into a new stadium and all this money will help.'
Roman Bednar scored twice as West Brom thrashed 10-man Coventry 5-0 in the all-Championship clash at the Ricoh Arena.
Chris Brunt, Ishmael Miller and Zoltan Gera also scored, while Michael Doyle was dismissed for a challenge on Gera.
Cardiff midfielder Peter Whittingham scored one goal and created another for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to help his side to a 2-0 win over Wolves at Ninian Park.
