    That's pretty awesome. :)

    Malaga broke my team's 11 game winning stream on my Deportivo save. Fucking TWO own goals to lose 4-3.

    Everyone pray for goals in the fa cup. Mate has a multi on for over 2.5 goals in:

    Arsenal v Plymouth
    Cardiff v Reading
    Hull v Newcastle
    Southampton v Man Utd
    Spartans v Blackburn
    WBA v Peterbrough
    West Ham v Barnsley
    Leicester v Crystal
    Coventry v Kidderminster
    Tottenham v Wigan
    Birmingham v Wolves
    Man C v Nottingham

    $10 down for $20k if it works out. I want it to miss out by one game.

    Time to go endure the annual embarrassment that is watching football be played on a cricket oval.

    I'm sure it's not as bad as playing over an american football field, but I get so confused while watching a game that is. There are so many stupid lines!

    Man City is getting tonked by Nottongham 0-3 at home.

    Also, Hartlepool knocks out Stoke. That's all for upsets, really. Peterborough get a 1-1 draw at West Brom.

    I would if the stupid ea servers weren't down.

    Also, Preston North put up a really good fight there at the end.

    Yeah, they played a great game... that was in no way a penalty.

    Oh, Derby v Forest in the 4th Round, that should be a good one too.

    Cheltenham or Doncaster. All right. Pretty much the longer Man U stays off our fixture, the better.

    And oh man, Liverpool/Everton. That? Is going to be fun.

    I have a new soccer blog The Minnow Tank. Reading it psychically kicks Sepp Blatter in the bean bag.

    I'm curious: what is the general sentiment towards how you want to see a draw play out? Because I get the feeling that I might be in the minority somehow with my attitude of 'give me the weakest opponent possible'. I'd like to get as deep in as possible and the pay for the winner is the same whether you draw Chelsea or West Auckland Town.

    Well, sooner or later you are going to come up against some tough opposition, so as far as I'm concerned it doesn't really matter when it comes. You have to be able to beat anybody at any time.

    I'm happy with Arsenal playing Cardiff, but it is going to be a tricky tie.

    Well, looks like Man U aren't going to have any trouble going through. Already 1 up, and Southhampton just got a guy red carded for a nasty little challenge.

    Give the biggest team the smallest teams because those rare upsets are the heart of the cup.

    Looks like Scott Parker is going to Man City.

    Which gets me thinking, how many players are West Ham and Portsmouth going to lose?

    Derby's not faring much better either. They had to go pretty late to beat non-league Forest Green.

    If Derby get a new Manager in they will be hard to beat, as they will likely get the new manager bounce. That's what Forest are going through now, and will just have to maintain the momentum.
