And just like that, we’re down to the last 16 of this season’s FA Cup.

Okay, there are still two fourth round games to play but there were plenty of awards to hand out from the 14 matches over the weekend.

The Practice Makes Perfect Award

Forget Penandes. Just call him Bruno Freenandes.

The Goal of the Weekend Award


The Assist of the Weekend Award

Well we couldn’t have one and not the other could we?

The Do You Feel Old Yet Award

Move over Jose Baxter. There’s a new kid on the block at Goodison.

The Things Can Only Get Better Award

Willian can’t keep performing this badly for Arsenal. Right?

The Worst Photoshop Award

This goes to the BBC’s graphics department ahead of Manchester United-Liverpool.

The Cut Your Losses Award

He is the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.

But it is just never going to happen for Kepa at Chelsea after his latest calamity against Luton Town.

The Kool & The Gang Award

Now that is a celebration.

The Smile Because It Happened Award

Well done Chorley. Even as their epic adventure came to an end, they can be proud of their performance against Premier League opposition.

The Home Sweet Home Award

Everton’s marquee summer signing is really enjoying it on Merseyside.

The Unexpected Opponent Award

What is it they say about referees being failed players?

It seems David Coote still fancies himself as a defender!

The Royal Rumble Award

We had Arsenal last week. And this week it was the turn of West Ham to invoke some wrestling spirit in the footballing world! Bah Gawd.

The Perfect Target Award

We don’t think that Matt Grimes was aiming for the prone player in the back of the net with this strike …

But who is to say for certain that he wasn’t?

The Up For The Cup Award

It doesn’t matter who he’s playing for. Anthony Knockaert is absolutely loving the FA Cup these days.
