Is the passion of the lower leagues starting to prevail?

In the week that League 2 Stevenage defeated Premiership Newcastle, Conference side Crawley dumped Championship Derby out of the FA cup, and Arsenal went down 1-0 to Ipswich, we could be expected to ask what’s going on in football! The magic of the cup has always led to such upsets but it seems this season it’s happening more than ever. Is it down to over paid players underestimating lower league teams or is it in fact pointing towards the gulf in class between leagues becoming narrower?

Could these players learn a thing or two from the sheer passion that these teams are showing? Do you think the top players in English football are relying too much on their perceived natural talent and therefore not playing the beautiful game with the spirit that was once evident in every game no matter which league you were watching?
