The traditional English FA Cup, bursting with tradition, once again provided a treat for football romanticists as fourth-division Cheltenham hosted the giant club Manchester City in a fourth-round match on Saturday night.
The large sensation was close, but eventually the smaller one bent.
Cheltenham took the dream close to the 59th minute goal, celebrated by the hearts of a player named Alfie May.
After that, the minutes ticked too slowly for the home team, of course, but still for sure.
Eventually, Cheltenham's dreams crumbled, and quickly: first Phil Philode in the 82nd minute 1-1 and two minutes later in Gabriel Jesus City 2-1.
In the end, Ferran Torres hit another 3-1.
Arsenal’s trip to this season’s Cup, which celebrated the FA Cup victory last summer, came to a head when Southampton defeated London guests 1-0 at home.
The home crowd cheered when, after 24 minutes, Gabriel's Gabriel's charge up the middle resulted in the keeper making one of his best saves of the day.
Arsenal, who won a record 14 titles in the FA Cup, had never lost to Southampton in a traditional cup race before.
A setback was also rare, as the Arsenal net was last scored on December 26 in a league game against Chelsea.
The paint had been clean for a total of 508 minutes.
Southampton will face in the 5th round at Wolverhampton away.
On Friday night, the Wolves briskly cleared the sixth-level Chorley 1-0.
Norwich, who played without his injured star striker Teemu Pukk, dropped out of the sequel when Barnsley, who played at the same league level, the championship series, took a 1-0 home win in the 4th round match.
Barnsley's Finnish defender Aapo Halme was also on the sidelines due to an injury.
The top team in the championship series, Norwich, fell to Barnsley, 11th in the series, with Callum Styles in the 56th minute.
This is how a potentially delicious encounter in Halfeen Barnsley awaits in Round 5: the winner of Sunday’s match between Chelsea and Luton will come.
