    Newbalance you are correct. Much of the interest goes as the games are so spread out. One loses interest.

    Hudson Odoi showed yesterday he’s worth every penny of £40m.

    Hopefully Chelsea manage to hang on to him I thought his interview yesterday was very grown up and didn’t sound like a player looking to leave but it’s chicken and egg he wants to play regularly at 18 and if Chelsea don’t play him regularly he won’t sign the new contract and offer which will force Chelsea to sell him which will be a great shame given he’s been nurtured at the Club since aged 8.

    4 Chelsea Youth team players started the game yesterday. I would play Hudson Odoi v Spurs on Tuesday night.

    Adlab, based on Nil’s criteria you’re just about to touch middle age mate.😊

    Thoroughly enjoyed that cup tie on the BBC. Just felt it was going to be Newport’s day and their Giantkilling was fully deserved.

    If you don’t respect the competition not the opposition then you will pay the price.

    Wins in the league recently unexpectedly against Man City Chelsea and Everton doesn’t paper the other question marks and neither the Manager’s own position.

    Really liked Newport’s first. Just a lovely cross in and every Striker’s joy to get on the end of it.

    Hope they get a decent tie away from home that will help them finally and progress into the next round.🙂

    Be interested to hear the Liverpool posters on here views of the FA Cup in relation to them this season.

    Obviously it’s still a prestigious trophy but would falling out of it early and falling out of the CL v Bayern not be in Liverpool’s best interests re their PL title ambitions or should they go for everything and play a strong team v Wolves etc etc.

    Personally I would say go for everything because you can’t pick and choose what you win and see where it takes you even though fighting on three fronts might be difficult.

    There was pressure on Puel previously and he chose a weakened team v City in the League Cup prior to the Chelsea game which may have cost Leicester the chance to progress. Is he under even more pressure now and might we see a change in Manager?
