Saturday Open Thread: Magic of the Cup and Etc. Edition

Alex Livesey

The third round of the FA Cup takes all the headlines in England, while Suso and Almeria will hope to climb further off the relegation zone in La Liga when they host Granada.

Busy, busy day in England, where the Third Round Proper of the FA Cup gets underway with 24 different fixtures. The days starts off with Manchester City visiting Blackburn Rovers, and sprinkled throughout the 3:00PM GMT kickoff slate are a few Premier League matchups, as well as some potential upset bids for Leicester City, Burnley, Sheffield United, and QPR. The day's action wraps up at the Emirates, with a North London derby set to finish what's sure to be an interesting day in the magicalest of magic magicness.

There's also the Coupe de France if you're so inclined, and over in Spain there's a chance to cast your gaze upon the most perfect of pompadours at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos in Almeria, where Suso could help his side climb further up the table and within a point of their opposition, Granada.
