If it wasn't for Nani it could have been Leeds vs United I know you always look out for that away tie, Segunda.

I will have no one criticise FUTURE ENGLAND CAPTAIN SCOTT WOOTTON!

Yes we lost but we did a good game with the weak squad we had in this match.


And, Nani should be out next season.

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is VILAAAAAA, VILLA night
And no one's gonna save you from the Bent about to strike
You know it's VILLAAAAA, Villa night
You're fighting for your life inside a braver villa tonight!

Villa bound.
I think we have a no-Man U rejects policy here now after the Djemba-Djemba debacle, light years ahead of QPR we are.

CONTENT with Norwich away although I really wanted Bradford at home.

Also, Leeds vs Chelsea at Elland Road should be awesome.

Eh, its always a great tie but we've had them home and away in the past 4 seasons. I'd have sooner had Bradford away (not played them in over a decade and Valley Parade is a top old school ground, especially the away end behind the goal). Would have had a good allocation, cheap prices and only the more devoted and hardcore United would have gone to it. Leeds is one of those ties where your casual fan probably isn't arsed for fear of getting a kicking, but at the same time its definitely got the potential to attract some utter weapons who want to 'experience the atmosphere' and proceed to video the match on Youtube. Fuckers.

Villa would have also been an ideal away, if only because it used to be a top away with the old away end behind the goal being a class end and loads of hardcore United always getting tickets. Plus we always seemed to play them in the December timeframe where our support gets really excellent, i.e 12 days of Cantona song. Minute they moved the away end to the side stand and started making the prices dearer and dearer its progressively lost its allure as one of the best aways of the season. At least in the cup we'd of had a better allocation and they'd have made it cheaper. Think the last time we had them away in the cup it was in 07/08 when we had around 7000 in the ground and its one of the best atmosphere United have ever produced post 2000 at an away ground.

Middlesbrough away could also have been good, but they're notoriously shit with us when it comes to tickets. They hate our persistant standing and always seemed to try their best to get United to sit. Indeed I remember a cup game back in 2004 or 2005 where we only got around 1100 tickets due to our persistant standing, with the belief they'd be able to patrol United better and get them to sit. All 1100 United stood and the half empty ground proved how stupid they were to not give United 5000 more tickets and get more revenue.

Definitely think we can take more positives than that than Chelsea can despite the results. Very much a second choice team and they were unfortunate to not beat basically a first choice Chelsea team in the 90. Really shows the lack of depth that Chelsea have right now. Sturridge is lol worthy right now. Needs to get away from Chelsea and join a mid table club to rebuild his carear if he want to make anything of it. Moses looked great. I'd honestly play him up front and have him and Mata/Oscar/Hazard rotate around all match. Defensively they were hilarious again. That's our role dammit.

Anderson was so all match. That flick about 15 minutes are was orgasmic. Love to see him get more starts in the League. Fletcher playing 120 is a big positive too. Thought Keane looked super. Sucks for Wooton that he messed up twice. Didn't have a bad match outside of that. Given Buttner 3 matches and I'm inclined to say I've given up hope on him now. Defensively he's shocking. Worse than Evra. Yeah he offers something going forward but he's shokcing defensively. Between this and the Braga match he's been at fault for 3 very cheap goals in 120 minutes. Love to see Hernandez start on Saturday but it's him or RVP in that position and it aint much of a contest sadly for him. Nani is so done with Utd now. May as well just stop giving him chances. Wouldn't piss me off as much if he wasn't capable of being as good as he was for his goal. Giggs was very good too. 120 minutes vs that Chelsea team, nearly 39 and didn't gas out. Incredible. Welbeck is useless out wide. RVP signing has really donkey punched him bad. Rafael continues his impressive streak too. Hopefully he's got enough left for Arsenal.

I'd be surprised if Chelsea beat Swansea now after playing nearly all of their first team for so long tonight to win a match that doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. I'll take a loss for tiring Chelsea's first team out ahead of a tough away match in 3 days and getting some valuable experience for guys like Keane and Wooton. Annual Macheda League Cup appearance too. Yay.

As am I with Villa at home, couldn't ask for a better tie without all of the stars and planets aligning. Both of us should be excited at the prospect of reaching the semi-finals now. Neither of our clubs are above wanting to win this competition in any way.

It's going to be a hell of a game, a big tv match in the making.

Clearly Swanselona will make the final as they knocked out the defending champions.



Honestly though, Swansea deserved to advance. We were horrible first half. We kept possession for the 10 minutes but there was nothing to show for it and then Swansea controlled the rest of the half playing effective football and going one up. Second half was better because Suarez and Gerrard were subbed on. It's obvious that we still rely on these two. I understand that we didn't play our strongest side but we were still strong enough to beat Swansea. No excuses. We are still a joke at Anfield.

I just thought it was a good chance to advance as we were playing home against Swansea. Would rather play away nowadays.

Hopefully it's a lot more positive come this weekend.

Chelsea/Leeds will be interesting but totally expect Chelsea to go through and win the whole thing.

Judging by how empty there stadium is on any match day I think Middlesbrough just hate fans turning up, it was embarrassing seeing a half-empty stadium on Match of the Day when Borough where in the Premier League

When it comes Loyalty I think Middlesbrough are probably the worst supported team in the country
