    This is why I felt it was the worst possible draw we could have got :(

    Think Sheff Utd will prove a trickier test this time around than when we rolled them at Bramall Lane back in August.

    That said it depends how much quality they have on the ball as playing on decent pitches is what we're all about and unless the weather is atrocious (like Everton away) then we're guaranteed a quality surface at home.

    Four of the players that started in that game back in August departed in January all on loan, with view to permanent deals. We've added more quality too, however I would expect Sheff Utd to line up stronger than they did back then too.

    Prediction: Close game, BTTS and over 2.5. 3-1 Leicester with us getting a late finishing goal on the break.

    And we need to see how we are going to "disrespect" the FA cup in team selection yet

    Well, Merson's reaction when he our seen our team put forward to play Peterborough was one of disgrace and almost as if we weren't interested in the cup. I understand that may be the case for some teams in certain situations but most teams in the PL these days have quality all through their squad. Notice he said f*ck all when he seen the result was 5-1.

    We'll definitely play a stronger team than we did in the League Cup, but our midfield will be threadbare due to injury/suspension/cup ties. We play decent football and we always try to attack, so we'll open up without a doubt.

    Overall you'll have too much for us and the 3-1 scoreline mentioned above is what I reckon too.

    The team virtually picks itself apart from the strikers unless Wilder decides to mix it up massively:

    Blackman​
    Stearman, Wright, O'Connell​
    Baldock, Basham, Duffy, Lundstram, Stevens
    Donaldson, Sharp
    Eastwood, Lafferty, Heneghan, Carruthers, Brooks, Wilson ,Clarke

    The speed of that front four is terrifying to be fair.

    Huddersfield Town v Manchester Utd : Be nice to think we can repeat our League win over Man Utd but I can't see them letting the FA Cup go by especially as their chances of winning the Premier League are virtually gone now. :cool:

    We'll lose, although a Gary Cahill own goal winner for us would do nicely

    Usually get the whole end on one side of the pitch, excellent for making a racket. Went with FC once.

    Get anywhere decent for the Saturday?
