    Can somewhat understand the Manchester United v Coventry game being deemed a risk given both Manchester and Coventry trains come into London Euston.

    Isn't that the case regardless of k.o. time?

    Easily fixed of course, move the game away from London.

    Only a few days away from another trip to Wembley! Even though I don't think semis should be played there, I'm excited. 4th time in 7 seasons.

    It's very unlikely but if we were to pull off a massive upset, I will be insufferable. :laugh:

    Probably the one time where Poch's main game plan could prove beneficial tomorrow.

    Good luck for Sunday , hope you win , Utd look sh*te this season , a group of overpaid individuals rather than a team , O'Hare will boss that midfield .

    Totally agree re the Wembley comment , you should be playing at Hillsborough on Sunday & City v Chelsea at Villa Park but that'd be traditional & the FA don't like tradition + they have the cost of Wembley to repay .

    All the best, would be brilliant to see you at a cup final again.

    Remember Houchen's wonderful header from 1987. Wow.

    I don't know what the state of the squad is but it doesn't sit right with me that Madueke and Jackson have started given what they pulled on Monday. Especially Madueke, who had prior doing that.

    All the time in the world there. Just pick your spot and put it past the keeper.

    Ehat is it with players trying to play offside in their own half lately. I've never seen it so much in a season. Lucky it wasn't palmer going through on goal

    It's part and parcel of how an aggressively attacking side has to play.

    Sorry I meant the opposition half.
    Yes the high line but not in their half. That's just braindead stuff.

    So you think City should drop off a bit? I don't know, it has served them pretty well for like 7 years now.

    I meant to say the opposition half. The high line they should definitely keep

    We look really leggy and generally off it. Our play in the box has been incredibly frustrating the last couple of games, sometimes we are so intricate with our play the players just get in the way of each other.
