Swansea City and particularly Bradford City's progress into the final of the Capital One Club was a reminder the FA Cup does not have a monopoly on unlikely stories in English football.
With ten Premier League clubs facing lower league opposition in the FA Cup Fourth Round this weekend there might just be one or two more giant-killings we are talking about before the week is up.
The likes of Liverpool (facing Oldham Athletic) and Norwich City (hosting non-league Luton Town) will be keen to avoid such upsets though. Despite the threat of embarrassment they will be hopeful of making their divisional advantage count and get that one step closer to Wembley.
There are just two all top-flight clashes, with Manchester City away at Stoke City and Manchester United at home to Fulham.
With a lot of football going on, here are ten players that are likely to take part this weekend who could be worth keeping an eye on. Some of these are well known, a few perhaps less so.
