Blackburn/ManU, FA Cup.

Can anything happen? Rovers will be short-handed, particularly at the back. Perhaps tomorrow, we will finally see the genius that is Owen Coyle emerge against the eccentric one, Jose Mourinho. :lol:

My best call: 0-2. Prove me wrong, Rovers. Arte et Labore.

Dingles lose to non-league side, glorious!

This is why we lose matches, no poll.

I would love an upset and win.

I remember when Rovers were doing well and Burnley were struggling in the lower leagues. The Burnley fans i knew took great pleasure when Rovers were beaten in high profile games. They came across as being quite bitter really. They were that deluded that their own club was failing and they were resorting to other teams success over Rovers to find some kind of happiness in football. Quite sad really. Now somewhat the boot is on the other foot and don't feel i should be overly happy for Burnley's demise in the FA Cup. Well done Lincoln but i do not feel anything towards Burnley. I will say this though. Make the most of when you are being successful. Rovers have a premier league trophy and a league cup. We should have had an FA Cup too but i think Sheffield Utd beat us in the quarter finals in 1993 when we were one of the best teams in England. Burnley might rue this day in years to come.

Then, a 10-man Millwall knocks out Leicester, with a goal in 90th minute!?

I am starting to think...Rovers have a chance. :hyper:

We had a chance a few years ago when Wigan won the FA Cup. We got knocked out by Millwall too that year when it was easier to win!

True, but Rovers pulled off the big upset at Emirates before. It could happen. This is a nice FA Cup run for a lot of 'dogs, maybe it continues for us.

Blackbat as optimistic as ever :yeahright: . I'm saying a hopeful 1-3. If we're lucky, they'll score an own goal. COYB. I hope the JW stand is a bit livelier today than it was against Newcastle :doh:

Blackbat as realistic as ever :lol:

Seriously, ManU beat a much better Reading club, 4-0. We're missing way too many key guys; even if we had them, we probably couldn't reach my prediction of 0-2.

I am rather anxious to watch this match. I'm not putting any expectations into this other than a loss.

Thats the way I'm going into it, Thor. I will be happy with every successful pass, and if we get a couple decent shots on goal, I will be ecstatic. Our son is a huge Liverpool fan, so he will obviously be cheering on the Blue & White! :D

I'm about to leave for church services, but I'm dvr'ing, & I will checking in during the game (wife will be beating me in the pew, lol)

I'm fairly anxious to miss it personally. I might defrost the freezer.
