Worcester City beating Liverpool springs to mind.<p>That defeat cost the Liverpool manager his job and he was replaced by Bill Shankley

Bournemouth 2-0 Man Utd would have to be close.<p>But perhaps the closest we have had to a major shock recently was the Charlton vs Dagenham game last year.<p>I can't recall a Premiership team being beaten by a Non-League side, I sure I'll be corrected if this is wrong!

I know this doesn't really challenge Sutton's mighty win over the Sky Blues, but it certainly felt like it as we tore through the might of Margate this afternoon - at their place!<p>5-0 the final score, completing a nice cup double, and showing us just how good we could potentially be in the Conference next season.<p>The response by the Margate fans was a rather bitter and sulky one on our club message board - any others out there? images/icons/mad.gif" border="0

I attended the aforementioned Sutton/Coventry fixture and still regularly watch two of that Sutton team in action (Messrs Golley and Dawson).

More notable I feel was the scoreline from Carrow Road in the very next round - another match I had the good fortune of witnessing.

No doubt Jared, too, was present at both games ?

Can I wade in with Harlow 1-0 Leicester from 1980?

Leicester were top of the old Second Division at the time. Harlow were in the equivilent of the Ryman League Division Two. We went up to Leicester and got a 1-1 draw, before bringing them back and taking the replay.

Official attendance on a Tuesday night at our "athletics track" ground was 10,000. Police reports from the time reckon that at least another 5000 had jumped the fence (which isn't hard to do).
for trouble and started a bit of a riot on one of the banks. I think they regretted that
Some Leicester Hooligans came down looking afterwards :-) (I was only 1 at the time. Gutted I missed out on that Cup Run).

Jared, you can't even spell Whyteleafe you half-witted glory-hunting loser (that supports a team wearing brown and yellow). You know nothing you hopeless buffoon and I've probably watched Sutton more than you have.

Sarah, I once had a Main Stand season ticket at Brisbane Road and don't tell me Ian Juryeff isn't the geatest striker of all time ever.

Come on you O's!!!

Sarah,

Regarding your greatest cup shock ever at The Ooze. Not likely to happen again in the near future while the club is suffering from such a massive Hearnia!
