The FA Cup is back this weekend for the fifth round. Leeds got knocked out of the cup ages ago, but there are still a few games that look good this weekend…

Firstly Arsenal v Sheffield United. These teams met in the FA Cup semi final only a few years ago (after Sheffield knocked Leeds out!). If Arsenal play like they did against Crystal Palace on Monday they’ll win for sure – still you never know in the FA Cup. This game is on BBC1 from 12.10pm, Saturday

Everton v Man Utd. Pie lad Wayne Rooney returns to his old ground, no doubt he’ll receive a hot reception from the scousers even though his transfer earned Everton £25million and gave the players spirit – instead of fighting relegation like last season, they’re fighting for The Champions League. While Everton are good I can only see Man Utd winning this game, especially with Ruud Van Horseface playing again. This game is on BBC1 from 17.23pm, Saturday


“Who eat all the pies…”

Burnley v Blackburn. For me, the pick of the round. OK, these teams aren’t the best in the country but they are bitter rivals. This could be a heated game in which both teams put out strong, solid performances. Either team could win this one. Looking forward to this one! It’s on BBC1 from 13.30pm, Sunday

Lastly Newcastle v Chelsea. Newcastle aren’t having a great league season, European football next season looks unlikely. Chelsea on the other hand are about to step into a Champions League game against Barcelona next week and are 9 points clear at the top of The Premiership. I can only see the away team winning here, if Newcastle win I would be very surprised. This game is on Sky Sports One from 15.30pm, Sunday

The most important game of the weekend for me is Leeds United’s match against Wigan. Leeds will go into this game expecting to lose, Wigan are one of the best sides in the division and are playing at home. Leeds however are doing well and being the underdogs have nothing to lose. While Wigan are the obvious favourites, I can see Leeds getting something from this game. C’mon Leeds!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
