FA Cup fifth round draw:

Burnley v Lincoln City
Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur
Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United
Sutton United v Arsenal
Middlesbrough v Oxford United
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Chelsea
Huddersfield Town v Manchester City
Millwall v Derby County/Leicester City

What do we reckon, Sutton to beat Arsenal? Arsenal believe that they just have to turn up, find the pitch to be too small and struggle. Sutton close them down and nick a 1-0 win on the counter or it's 1-1 and Sutton are awarded a penalty in the 89th minute. They put it away and by the time the celebrations have died down there is not enough time for an Arsenal equaliser. :D

In other news, Payet has gone to Marseille (thank god that one hasn't dragged on) but now Ulloa of Leicester City has come out and said that he will not play for the club again due to being 'betrayed'. Wah wah. Apparently Sunderland have bid for him to go alongside the two Everton players that they have signed.

Nigel Clough has turned down the chance to be Forest manager. Cannot blame him to be honest but I wasn't particularly fussed in all honesty. Decent enough manager but not fantastic.

I live less than a mile from Sutton's ground. My chances of getting a ticket are very, very slim heh... unless I want to queue very, very early...

Ranieri sacked, I reckon Wenger will replace him

My heart says Ranieri should never have been sacked; my head says that it was obvious many players weren't playing for him and that relegation was almost inevitable if he stayed in charge.

Most ridiculous sacking in a big long line of ridiculous sackings. They don't sack the players, do they.

Win the league with an entirely 100% unfanciable team, and return back to their "normal" level the year after. Of course you can see why they've done it, it just means they've already wiped out and forgotten what he actually did for them last season, which is just ridiculous. :roll:

Nice to see the Leicester players turn up last night...

Never seen such a quick turnaround on a club from neutrals.

Luis Enrique to leave as Barcelona manager, not that surprising in all honesty.

He's won the league both years he's been in charge, plus the CL in his first year. This season he's top of the league and in the Copa final. But not winning - or even getting to the final - of the CL makes it almost inevitable that he won't be in charge next season.

I'm sure there'll be a lot of clubs after him when he leaves.

Watched that several times and can't decide if it was deliberate or not. Only person who will ever know for sure is Mings. No doubt about the elbow though, and hearing Ibrahimovic claim "he jumped into it" reminded me of this:


Now pie, I'm just going to start chomping air. And if you get eaten, it's your own fault

Nicklas Bendtner has left Forest already. Has joined Rosenborg for an undisclosed fee. He managed two goals in seventeen appearances for Forest and only joined Forest in September on a two year deal.

Craig Shakespeare is to be offered the Leicester job until the end of the season according to reports. Maybe they should offer it to Paulo Bento who was yesterday sacked as Olympiakos manager despite being seven points clear at the top of the table.

Wow. Just... wow. Even I cheered when Sergi Roberto bundled the sixth in.

That's why I can't stand Barca. It's hardly like they are the only team to cheat, but no one else is so blatant about it. That's before we even get onto the facts that their league is basically set up so it can be a two horse race every year, media fawning and the way that tap up players.
