Magic Of The Cup! Oldham Manager Goes Wild And FA Cup Upsets Produce 659/1 Treble!

Pete Wild Loses His Mind As Oldham Stun Fulham!
Pete Wild Loses His Mind As Oldham Stun Fulham!

Lovers of cliché bingo would have been in their element during this FA Cup weekend and we are going to hail the time-honoured 'magic of the cup' following some stunning results in the third round on Sunday. You could have got odds of 659/1 on three of the upsets!

Oldham caused an almighty shock by beating Premier League outfit Fulham 2-1 thanks to a couple of late goals at Craven Cottage and it clearly meant a lot to their interim manager, Pete Wild.

Wild literally went wild at the full-time whistle as his side came from a goal down, his keeper - Daniel Iversen - saved a penalty, moments before Callum Lang head in an 88th minute winner.

It was a fairy-tale finish for Oldham and a remarkable story for Wild, who went to his first Oldham game as a fan with his dad at Boundary Park 28 years ago. Now he is the manager who has overseen a remarkable giant-killing! See Wild's celebrations in the Twitter video at the bottom of this article.

Barnet were another of the big talking points too as they will be the only non-league side to take their place in the fourth round after producing a stunning performance to beat Sheffield United 1-0.

The Bees are through to the fourth round for the first time in eleven years as they overcame the Blades - who are 84 places above them in the football pyramid.

Doncaster also produced a shock to win 3-1 at Preston and remarkably, a £5 treble bet on Doncaster, Oldham and Barnet all winning on Sunday would have returned £3300 - congratulations to anyone who got on that!
