Coventry City were humbled in the FA Cup 18months or so after winning it by (then) non-league Sutton Utd. in 1989.

Who beat Sutton (by 8-0) in the next round?

No. But in that same round Charlton did beat a non-league side, Kettering Town, by the narrow score of 2-1. At home too. (well, at Selhurst Park which they were sharing at the time).

Liverpool won it, but their victims were Carlisle United (3-0), Millwall (2-0) and Hull City (3-2) all away. They then beat Brentford (4-0) at Anfield in the sixth round before the Ill-fated semi-final at Hillsborough against Forest, which they won 3-1 when it was eventually played four weeks later.

They beat Everton (3-2 aet) in the final.

No. The defending cup-holders had a decent run, doing a brum double in the third & fourth rounds 1-0 at Birmingham City , then 1-0 at Aston Villa. They saw off Grimsby Town 3-1 at the old Plough Lane before going down 0-1 at Everton.

Re: Never Ending General Knowledge

They are not. Both Ipswich Town and Queen’s Park Rangers exited at the first hurdle, although in Rangers’ case that stretched to three matches : the first game at Old Trafford was goalless; the replay at Loftus Road finished 2-2, before Man. Utd. prevailed 3-0 in the second replay, back at OT.

Ipswich went down 3-0 at Nottingham Forest.

Not Brentford, though they did beat non-league opposition Halesowen Town (2-0) in the 1st round, and followed it up with a memorable run to the quarter-finals beating Peterborough United (after a replay), Walsall (again, another replay required), Manchester City, then in the second division (3-1) and Blackburn Rovers (2-0). Their run ended at the hands of the first top-flight team they met, Liverpool.

Then beat Sutton Utd. 8-0 at Carrow Rd. In the 4th
Beat Sheffield Utd. 3-2, again at home, In the 5th
