    Birmingham v Wolves

    Verdict: 2-1

    I guess this is the archetypal 'if we lose we can just concentrate on the league' game, with both clubs flying high in the Championship.

    It'll be interesting to see if both really go for the win. I don't think Cup runs particularly affect league form, if you don't get replays there aren't that many more games and they both have large enough squads to cope.

    Not really bothered about this game and just hope we don't get any injuries to key players.

    Birmingham 2 - 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
     
  3. Last year we went to ****ing Watford in the FA Cup. Put on good show, won 4-1, to the great joy of several posters, who unfortunately hadn't noticed that Watford weren't trying very hard.

    The following week we went there again. Result? 3-0 to them. They got the three points we really could have used and we went on to defeat by Cardiff in the next round. What a waste of time!

    Let's lose to the Blooze tomorrow and then beat them in the League game.

    He took enough pot shots at us during the premiership season to know we exist. I think he may have even faced us during his laughable spells as a manager.

    Know what you mean Adrian but I was thinking along the lines of the Championship in general to be honest. A total "there's only the Premier League isn't there?" if ever there was one. Total **** IMO.

    league league league.

    hope our 2nd string go out and win, but lets not risk injuries
     
  8. Will hopefully be a game for the likes of Shackell, Friend, Vokes etc to start pushing on hard for a regular place.

    I really have no idea which way it'll go as i don't know what teams Mick and Alex will choose. Cup runs are always nice if you're doing $$$$e in the league. We're not, so i won't be too disappointed with defeat.

    Nether the less, I'll go 1-1 and a bloody replay... which is what no one wants ;)

    Yeah, I'm sure Lawrensen didn't just take his first glance at the Championship league table this season and say "1st v. 3rd, should be close, home win".

    Agree with jbarnett that the most I'm hoping for is some positive reports on a couple of fringe players.

    Too bloody right we don't want a replay. If it came down to it being 1.1 going into stoppage time I'd personally pay Neill Collins to give away another penalty.

    (no offence to the boy Collins intended)
     
  11. You wouldn't need to pay him Dews ;)

    Not what I meant though pal. I meant I'd actually beg, plead and implore him to trip someone in the area. And then pray that whoever was in goal would just let it in.
     
  13. From Wikipedia...
    Possibly explains his apparent dislike of us!

    What is worrying if Wolves go ahead to the next round, is that the 4th round is played on the weekend of 24/25th January and Wolves have an important away fixture at Reading the following Tuesday 27th January, which is a 6 pointer for both teams, and surely Wolves would need to take something from that match as otherwise Reading would come nearer to Wolves, assuming that both teams collect the same number of points in the 2 fixtures between the 3rd and 4th round of the FA Cup.

    Unless Reading beat Cardiff of course.

    Sorry to say that I have to agree with this sentiment. I used to love the FA Cup, but now it just seems a distraction, certainly if you are a club in our current situation where it seems getting to 'The Promised Land' is the be all and end all. The chances of picking up injuries being the main concern.
     
  18. Wolves haven't tried in the League Cup for years, presumably because we want to concentrate on getting promoted, so why worry about the FA Cup at this stage in the Club's history?

    I predict the game will be called off.
