    We have a better chance of winning the FA cup next year than we do this year.

    Since our most recent promotion to the Premier League we have played Man City eight times and conceded at least two goals in each game.

    Man City in all competitions , this season, have only failed to score in four matches and they missed a penalty in two of those.

    We need to score at least two to get to extra time in my opinion, probably three. The problem is we wont be able to get possession and when we do we will either play it long losing possession straight away allowing them to start another attack or we will play it short for a maximum of three passes, inevitably losing possession as we are closed down.

    Set pieces are not a big threat either as they are excellent at defending them. We need to play in a way that we break quickly and run at their central defence.

    It does not matter if we concede a goal as that is inevitable, but we must not concede quickly after the first one as we have a habit of doing this putting us in a position where we are out of the game.

    Not just glass half full stuff but meniscus is about to burst stuff.

    There is always the small chance that City will get lucky and sneak a win, but on balance, 2-0 to the 'orns!

    I don’t know what’s more depressing the lack of faith in the predictions or the fact that they are probably right

    Interesting many city to win 5:0 is 20:1 us to win 1:0 is 26:1

    If they score we are ****** as they will score a lot , it will either be 1:0 to us or 5:1 to them

    3-2 us, we'll blitz them around the 70-75 minute mark only to get twitchy in stoppage time. Came to me in a dream, the entire City backroom staff was unavailable so they had to draft in darts player Mervyn King to manage them from a day, his recent health issues notwithstanding, and Success, Sema and Janmaat took advantage of the utter confusion at set pieces. Cue bedlam in town, led by my best mate's (a Toffee unfortunately) 80 something year old gran, who set off flares all over Watford which ended up in her getting arrested

    Least realistic bit of this is us keeping them to only 2 goals.

    3-1 to us!
    0-0 half time. Early goal 2nd half followed by a 2nd around 70mins.
    Then they absolutly bombard us and score at 82 ish and we are in complete panic and last ditch defending, then a desperate punt clear sets Gray free and he miss-controls it which confuses their keeper and he bundles in the winner late on!
    It's in the tea leaves! :)

  14. You think its more realistic that we will score 3 ??
    5% we win, 45% we lose by one or two, 50% we lose by 3 or more. Sounds about right to me.

    Brighton only lost 1-0 in the semi

    We are better than Brighton.

    However, on the flip side, they can actually defend.

    Excellent. With any luck, some of their players cannot swim.

    We shouldn't have sold Nordin Armband.

    Disappointing if true. I thought it was the law that it had to be sunny and warm on cup final day?

    Anyone who has Watford to win by any scoreline whatsoever is mental.

    But you know, sometimes, it’s the crazy ones....

    3-1 City.

    Them to take the lead inside the first 20 minutes. Us to equalise just before half time. Them to pull away in the second half with goals at c.60 and 80 minutes.

    Sterling, Deulofeu, an unexpected City scorer, Aguero.

    My mind is totally blown by the perceived concept that there is a direct correlation between the quality of their team vs the quality of ours and their ability to outdrink us.

    They should get the better pubs, because they’re a better team... so they can naturally out drink us as a result? Are they aware we’ll both have 28k fans there? Thick northern idiots.

    I suppose we might think the same of Deeney if he wasn't one of ours?!

    Tbf to the City fans as the last comment points out we aren't exactly expecting much more than a defeat ..

    The most bitter comment came from the Wolves fan ..

    1-1 then pens.

    0-0, goes to ET and pens.

    First 5 penalties are all score by both teams so it goes to sudden death. By some miracle it gets to 10pm and the two teams are still neck and neck. The FA are too tight to spend the extra on floodlights past 10 pm and also some neighbours complained about the noise so the game is abandoned and we share the trophy 50/50.

    We get custody on weekends and midweek, City gets the other days, holidays are split evenly but if either of the teams enters into a relationship with another cup competition then they have to forgo visitation rights.

    So lets hope City win the Charity Shield, as it will mean we get to keep the cup till May 2020.

    I said 4-1 as my serious prediction.

    But you know, with all the buzz this week from various articles raving about our set up and the interviews with the players about just how much it means. And then the pieces about the 1984’s just got the juices flowing and I’m fully into mode now!!!! So I’m revising it....

    6-0 City.
