Good win knocking out the holders. Great tactics by Ralph. No injuries. No complaints whatsoever. 

Thought JWP and Diallo were brilliant in midfield. Would like to see more from the strikers to be honest but I suppose it was Ingsy's first match back. 

Will Wolves be more difficult? I think they actually will because they'll be a very fit team.

Always like an away 5th round tie in the West Midlands.

what a damn shame we can't be at some of these games. We've been so impressive during lockdown too. Love the FA away games. Some very special occasions over the years.

Diallo MoM for me. Controlled that midfield, didn’t put a foot wrong all game.

boy is he a good signing. Give it a year and monstrous price tags might be needed to fend off suitors.

Great result. I thought we were dominant for the first hour and managed the last half hour well.

Bednarek my MoM. Mopped up splendidly.

Not a fan of the ref. Giving a corner when it was either a penalty or a goal kick. Booking Stephens for hurdling pepe. Booking bertrand for a foul, a minute after not booking Partey for a similar foul on Bertrand.

Nice to win but I don't think Wolves will be overly bricking it. 

No especially having just thrashed Chorley 1-0 with only one shot on target whereas their non-league opponents had 5.

So composed for a young lad. Would be great if he could become our Vierra. He’s bit like Kante too.

Was a toss up between Diallo, JWP, Bednarek and KWP for me, but gonna give it to JWP as it was yet another complete masterclass.

Yes there is.

Sorry, yes. I already acknowledged I was wrong and I misheard. It’s early morning here in Canada, had the sound down low so the kids could sleep in.

Deserved win. In hindsight although they were on top for last 30 mins they never really gave Forster much to do. Hard earned but good win. Wolves won’t be easy but beatable. Hopefully we’ll have a few back by then.

Yep, Diallo is a little gem and I don't think his performances will go unnoticed by other Clubs.   Quite amazing how little work FF has had to do in his three appearances.   A few nervous moments in the last 20 minutes and yet we could have been out of sight if Ings had been his usual clinical self.

Wolves are shite. Wembley here we come,

Not used to this strong defending. Stephens done very well replacing Vest. That is not to say he doesn’t scare me

Solid win. Excellent first half, would have been nice to grab another goal while we were really on top.

Second half defended well. Barely gave them a chance. Forster only really had to make one save. 

Diallo so impressive. Centre backs had good games too.

Good result, we did enough in the end.

 

As others have said, Diallo the best player on the pitch. He really is a super midfield talent.

 

I was thinking at the game's end his quality almost makes up for invisible man of mystery Salisu.
