Wigan Oust Man City From FA Cup, Largely Thanks To Emmerson Boyce’s ‘Block Of The Decade’ (GIF)

By Chris Wright

Soccer - FA Cup - Sixth Round - Manchester City v Wigan Athletic - Etihad Stadium

Wigan have just ousted Manchester City from the FA Cup for the second time in two years, putting on a non-shall-pass defensive display that Gandalf himself would’ve been proud of at the Etihad and escaping with a shock 2-1 victory – though it took an astounding goal-saving block from Emmerson Boyce to deny Edin Dzeko tapping home with just a few minutes left to play.

Gary Lineker has already branded it the “block of the decade” – not “century”, as first (over)stated - over on Twitter and, quite frankly, it’s hard to disagree…


Fun fact: Wigan last lost an FA Cup game in January of 2012 – against Swindon Town, no less.

So, Dave Whelan is going back to Wembley – where, we think we’re right in saying, he once suffered a fairly significant injury of some description back in his playing days.

Yay for him.

    Have to agree with Lineker here – immense block indeed. Kudos on the reference to the repeated Dave Wheelan story,ha

  2. Bestie says:

    DECADE! Lineker called it the block of the decade, not the century.
    Started early today Chris?

      @Bestie: There’s really no difference between a decade and a century if you happen to believe that time is an infinite soup.

    Jesus, does it really matter? Just enjoy the free content

  4. Bestie says:

    LOL….of course not. It’s always fun to catch Christopher though

  5. fudge says:

    I think when Chris knows he’s made a mistake or 5 and can’t be bothered to correct it he puts his name as Alan Duffy. Must’ve forgotten today Bestie.
