Liverpool v Arsenal will be a good one.

In a bit of a dilemma with the Cardiff V Tottenham game. Support Tottenham, but im from Cardiff..

lol - you know you want the Bluebirds to win :laugh:

A bit like the Colchester manager - He's a cardiff fan, and from the area, yet yesterday it was Cardiff V Colchester.

Nice to see us get a home tie, and against a prem club. I know this sounds stupid, but I think we have a better chance of beating spurs than we have of say tamworth. Going from what I've seen this season, our players play much better if we're not under pressure. Since we will be the underdogs against Spurs, there is no pressure for us to win. If we were playing a team like tamworth, then people would expect us to win, and I think that would put too much pressure on our players. (thats oen of the reasons why I think we aint good enough for the prem yet)

C'MON REDS! That game will be a cracker.

My prediction: 2-1 to the Reds with RVP scoring first for Arsenal and Liverpool coming back in the second half with goals from Peter Crouch and Luis Garcia.

At least, I hope Garcia plays. He needs to be used more and I hope he can firmly be set in the starting lineup very soon.

I saw that Martyn had quite an impact :)

Lets hope people saw and took notice :)

I must say that it brought a tear to my eye, I mean Hillsborough is a very sensitive issue here in Liverpool still. The whole point of today was to protest about Kelvin Mackenzie and to try and send a message out to people, and also to make people aware of his lies which he originally wrote in The Sun.

Got back from Cardiff about an hour ago. I feel we played really well, and probably should have beaten spurs lol. We outplayed them for a bit. I doubt we'll win in the replay, but you never know, if we get a good draw tomorrow (aka Swansea), then it should give us an incentive to work a little harder in the replay lol.

They did outplay them for a bit yeh, but i think the end result was justified. Neither team had many goal scoring opportunities.

I do hope Barnet beat Colchester. Then Plymouth will be playing them, and we will have our revenge from 3 seasons ago! I don't know what's going to happen to the Peterborough fans, after throwing bottles at our players. I hope that the FA decide to play the match behind closed doors. It might do the Posh fans a favour anyway when they come down to Home Park. I can't imagine what the Green Army are going to be singing to them, but in case there is a Peterborough fan here who is going to Home Park to watch the match, remember one thing: you can never say we only sing when we're winning, cause we sing all the time.

Come on you greens!

Yeah, the FA Cup is quite tough for us to talk about as well. The furthest we ever reached in the competition was the semi-finals in 1984, and we went out to Watford 1-0, who went on to lose 2-0 in the finals against Everton.

We haven't really reached any far points in the cup ever since.
