    and Cardiff beat Blackburn!

    Arsenal seemed to have turned their season around hey, I wonder what Wenger’s feeding his youngsters.

    But I agree with all your predictions, it seems that homeground advantage could be the deciding factor in all these ties.

    Should be a cracking though!

    Also, the Liverpool v Chelsea game depends on the strenght of the team each manager puts out on the night.

  4. Jarred Manasse says:

    You right, I’m putting my money on Liverpool to play full strength seeing that they do not have a European Competition to compete in.

    Chelsea however…. It will be a good test to see what AVB does… If its another failure.. The trust of the players could be shaken. His age could be his downfall if he fails to succeed.
