Liverpool did what so many Premiershit teams do - took the pi$$ by not playing the first team in the FA Cup and now they have an unwanted replay!

I can remember Jervis' chance but not many other forays into Liverpools half. Refresh me on the other near misses?
Shrewsbury missed two good chances in the first half (Whalley) another couple in the second (Lang? then Laurent...who was superb and Laurent again when the keeper just about turned it for a corner) plus the two goals and generally pressing high up the park.
I just enjoyed watching a real blood and thunder cup tie where the smaller club showed no fear and had a real pop.
Maybe they'll park the bus at Anfield but on that showing they needn't have to.
Cracking stuff. Hopefully next time we get to face a top division side we'll put in a similar, 'no fear' showing

That was how to play a cup tie against Liverpool rather than 180 minutes of defence.
