Hurrah I love cup weekend.

Anyway, here are my predictions.

Barnet 0-0 Colchester
Birmingham 1-2 Newcastle
Blackpool 2-0 Aldershot
Bristol City 0-2 Coventry
Chelsea 4-1 Macclesfield
Chester 1-2 Ipswich
Crystal Palace 3-1 Swindon
Derby 2-0 Wrexham
Doncaster 1-3 Bolton
Hull 1-3 Middlesbrough
Leicester 2-1 Fulham
Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal
Nottm Forest 1-0 Charlton
Peterborough 1-0 Plymouth
Portsmouth 1-1 Wigan
Preston 3-1 Sunderland
QPR 1-1 Luton
Reading 2-0 Burnley
Sheff Utd 2-0 Swansea
Southend 0-1 Barnsley
Tamworth 6-1 Norwich
Torquay 0-2 Southampton
Watford 1-0 Stockport
West Brom 3-0 Leeds
West Ham 3-0 Brighton
Wolves 1-0 Oldham
Cardiff 0-1 Tottenham
Everton 2-0 Blackburn
Man Utd 3-1 Aston Villa
Sheff Wed 1-3 Man City

Hmm ok. Not many away wins. All depends on how seriously the managers take the Cup. I don't think it's on Dennis Wise's list of priorities so I expect Leeds to lose and he'll get on trying to save them from relegation. Likewise Pardew at Charlton. They're playing teams in good form (although there's the whole form goes out the window thing) too. United will beat Villa, as they always do. Liverpool-Arsenal will be a draw and have to go to a reply, which means by that time people will be sick of watching the 2 play. Cardiff can't buy a goal so don't expect them to score. As for Ipswich we'll take the lead, Chester will equalise and then we'll hit back and hold on nervily like we usually do. We will then draw a middling Championship team in the 4th round (more than likely QPR or something) and lose that one. Oh yeah, and Tamworth have a bloke called Steve Burton on the books, who used to play for the ITFC youth system. He shall get a hat-trick today, Delia will look absolutely disgusted, and a managerial dream team of Bryan Hamilton and Nigel Worthington will be brought in in place of Peter 'I'm Zep's manager' Grant, where the first thing he will do is release Rob Earnshaw and announce the revival of the Sutton-Fleck partnership, effectively dooming the Budgies to a life in League One.

Apparently Newcastle have won the FA Cup 6 times. This must have been a long long time ago.

Massive upset at the Lamb today.

Moving on to more pertinent matters, at least we're in the hat.

Looks like Jimmmm got his prediction right. jammy bastard.

goalkeeping blunder in the 90th minute

We fought so valiatly as well, especially in the second half, the 2 centre backs (both under the age of 22) played so well and get nothing to show for it.

As Alan Shearer said, villa deserved at least a draw.

That's football for you

To tell the truth, united probably would have won the replay match anyway but it's so frustrating to lose a match in that fashion. If we'd played that match under o'leary then after the larsson goal it would have been game over, probably the finished 3 or 4 nil. But to come back like we did and then lose the game to a goalkeeping howler is such a sickener.

Can't wait for Sorensen to come back

Actually, I can foresee Villa being a pretty strong side in the vein of the old Leicester City side under O'Neill within the next few seasons. Cup runs and Europe and so on.

Once all the deadwood is cleared out (Baros for example, although I know he scored yesterday, and Mark Delaney, although I have every sympathy for him) and the new players are brought in, either bought or from the academy, Villa could be quite the force to be reckoned with.

yeah i hope so. with the staggering incompetence of o'leary and ellis now gone hopefully we can press on and get back to where we belong. It is quite frustrating to see teams like portsmouth and bolton above us especially when there's people i know who watched us win the european cup those years ago, hopefully days that resemble something like that will return (heaven knows what it must be like for a Forest fan!). Although the current hegemony that Chelsea and man United have on the premiership is quite worrying and it does make you wonder if a team like villa or spurs or newcastle will ever be able to break into that level of play again.

Liverpool 3-6 Arsenal

In the space of 3 days we've chucked them out of both competitions. How they must be sick of the sight of us.

If it was Reebok, yes.

Emirates... No.

Although I do hope that Fabre-girl and Van Persie get their little twinkle toes stood on. Tarts.
