FA Cup: Third-round ties that changed course of football history

FA Cup: Third-round ties that changed course of football history

http://www.officialbroncosnflauthentic.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JEFF_HEUERMAN_JERSEY.html For Premier League clubs, the FA Cup third round signals the annual start of their bid for glory. It has, though, been known to mean so much more than that. The third round has witnessed the turning point for at least two legendary managers, as well as the decline of a once great club and the resurgence of another. Here, BBC Sport looks at some third-round ties whose influence stretched far beyond progression to the next stage. With two league titles, an FA Cup and a European Cup Winners' Cup, Howard Kendall oversaw the most successful period in Everton's history. However, had a result in an FA Cup third-round game at Stoke City in 1984 turned out differently, it might never have happened at all. Ty Sambrailo Limited Jersey Kendall, in his third year as Everton boss, appeared to be on borrowed time as another campaign threatened to end without success. Prior to the trip to Stoke, the Toffees were 16th in the old First Division and had drawn 0-0 at home to Coventry. They then scraped past Chesterfield 3-2 on aggregate in the League Cup. The fans were becoming frustrated. Just 8,067 turned up at Goodison Park to watch the Chesterfield tie, where leaflets were handed out by supporters making their feelings known about Kendall. "Kendall and Carter Out - 30,000 stay at home fans can't be wrong. Bring back attractive, winning football to Goodison Park," they read. He needed a win, and it came at Stoke as goals from Andy Gray and Alan Irvine sealed a 2-0 victory. Authentic Shane Ray Jersey "Many Everton fans happened to be standing and singing on the road outside the Toffees' dressing room as Kendall prepared to address his players before the game," says BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty, a journalist at the Liverpool Daily Post at the time. "Kendall later revealed he simply opened the dressing room window to let his players listen to the chants of hordes of fans and said 'there's your team talk - don't let those fans down'." A win against Oxford United in the Milk Cup followed and the pressure eased on Kendall, who went on to lead Everton to FA Cup triumph that year. The Toffees secured a league and European Cup Winners' Cup double the next season, and another domestic title was won in 1986-87 - their last league title. http://www.officialbroncosnflauthentic.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_VANCE_WALKER_JERSEY.html No-one would have predicted that such success would follow what had been a rocky start to Kendall's managerial career at Everton. No-one, it seems, except for Kendall himself. "Howard was convinced early on," remembers Kevin Ratcliffe, Everton's captain under Kendall. "I remember he said to me after one game, 'you do know what year it is, don't you? It is the Chinese year of the Rat. We are going to win the cup'."
