If Liverpool insist on being quite so useless, I'm glad they can at least provide a foil for overachieving minnows, thus striking a metaphysical blow for football democracy and Freedom Everywhere. Havant & Waterlooville once figured to be the high/low point of the Reds' FA Cup experience, but now Barnsley has lived the dream in full. Congratulations to the, uh, Barnstormers or whatever they are. Now, on to Tuesday, when I hope to drink a glass of Italian prosecco and toast the conclusion of the Rafa Benitez era.
