FA Cup 6th Round

Last week's predos were nothing short of an embarrassment, especially for a bloke who started punting on the footy when he was barely out of secondary school. No Premier action this weekend as it's the FA Cup 6th round.

The big tie is Man U v Arsenal, with both sides needing a lift. Fergie's men have lost their last two league games - the last time that happened was in March 2009 (1-4 Liverpool; 2-0 Fulham). Last Sunday's game against Liverpool was a hard 90 fucking minutes to endure, and the 3 goals they conceded were sloppy at best. The Gunners, though, have had a complete fucking nightmare in the last fortnight, as talk of the fabled quadruple turned out to be as premature as... the list of ejaculation similies is endless. They were beaten by a hungrier Birmingham side in the cup, and a reffing terrible decision left them with no chance in Spain. Psychologically, it's going to be very difficult for Wenger to lift the side, so I think United will win by the odd goal. However, I'm a little bit surprised that the bookies have Arsenal at 3/1.

Fancy the Hammers to get a draw at Stoke and go on to win the replay. If any manager in English football deserves a bit of luck, it must be poor Avram (I can be a sentimental old cunt at times). Birmingham's Carling Cup honeymoon has been shortlived and Prem survival is now top of the agenda - Bolton, 2-1. The final game is Man City v Reading. City haven't impressed in their last two outings - if Tevez isn't on form, the team doesn't perform. And what the fuck is up that Balotelli? - when his footballing career goes tits up he can always land a leading role in a soap opera. Reading haven't been beaten in their last 7 games so the potential for a shock is on the cards - I'll plump for a draw (more out of wishful thinking, and the bookies have it at 4/1).
