I get the feeling there’ll not be many upsets at all this time round. I mean, upsets are supposed to be rare hence them being upsets but you know, I don’t see many.
Probably talking out my arse as well but I always think this FA cup weekend has a lot more draws and stale matches than the others. Teams resting players who need to recharge after the first half of the season, teams not playing players who might be sold and don’t want to risk them getting injured/are refusing to play, the bigger clubs still think they have a shot of getting into the top 4 so are focused on that, etc.
And no one likes a cup match replay. Has there ever been a good one? Just make the first match extra time and penalties and be done with it.
Can see Oxford beating Newcastle just because of Newcastle’s awful history in cup matches, and it would be very Newcastle in general. That and all the geordies will be moaning about how shit they are when they’re on course for automatic promotion.
Was going to say Wolves have a good shot against Liverpool as well. But then Liverpool would be losing at home for the third match in a row and surely, surely that won’t happen?
