It’s FA Cup week and every year it’s the first time where I think about the possibilities of a lower division team getting the chance to win something. It’s an unrealistic view despite the fact that some over-aged pundit thinks the FA Cup has lost its luster and I thought I’d rid my life of him when all the competitions got bought by bigger networks.
Anyway, there is always the hope that Watford might go back… until they draw Chelsea away…. but they’re on the back of a bad loss to Spurs so maybe there’s hope? Nope, just like Watford will always lose to Everton no matter how much of his glove holds on to the ball. Though apparently, the hairdos will be different…less curls and Peter Reid has started to dye his hair gray.
But there is always the potential upset. Aston Villa, anyone? They can’t score so who knows? Will MK Dons be able to upset a bigger team in Liverpool? It’s happened.
