FA Cup Third Round agaion... another upset?

Following on from last Januarys very enjoyable upset, Leeds Utd. this time are pitched away to Arsenal. Leeds are one league higher this year and playing pretty well, not looking out of place in a play off position but apart from some memorable FA cup encounters over the years there has never been quite so much rivalry with them as there has with Leeds Man U.

Personally, Arsenal have always been my favourite London team and when I lived in the smoke I often used to sit with the home fans when Leeds visited, always having great banter with the home fans.

Predictions? I doubt Leeds can do it, 3-1 to the Gunners this time which will allow Leeds to concentrate on the important target this year.

And ManU v Liverpool.

Of course I want the 'pool to win, but another defeat might just precipitate the long overdue departure of Herr Hodgson

Re: FA Cup Third Round agaion... another upset?

Would it be classed as an upset if Norwich City actually beat Leyton Orient and got through to the 4th round???

Re: FA Cup Third Round agaion... another upset?

You know I was looking at the Lawro prediction on Arsenal/Leeds and thought to myself that there might be an upset there. But as Beckford is flying high with the Toffees, it might be hard (actually he ain't playing much is he?).

Arsenal are fantastic until they get into the area. Pass pass pass pass pass....erm....hello?

I predict 2-2.

I also reckon Liverpool will somehow play like a team and beat ManU - thus delaying the inevitable...!!

Just into the 2nd half and Leeds have scored a penalty. 0-1

Could get interesting now!

Depressing. Utterly.

You'd think being a gooner we wouldn't be surprised anymore.

Having said that, penalty? No? what?

He is to Liverpool, what he was to Switzerland. An "ir" away from irreplaceable....

Re: FA Cup Third Round agaion... another upset?

Mr Hodgson has left Liverpool and Kenny Dalglish is now acting manager. It's a tough life for managers in the premiership...

Yeap, Herr Hodgson has left the club with "mutual consent" earlier this afternoon *happy dance* and King Kenny reigns till end of season.

Bets are off for tomorrow's game. Things are looking up. An inspired Liverpool team is a force to be reckoned with.

Re: FA Cup Third Round agaion... another upset?

Well Liverpool are out courtesy of a Berbatov pike and half twist penalty. The pen was taken by Giggs but Berbaflop won it, the judges giving him a 7.5 on the FINA scale.
