So where will the shocks be this weekend in the FA Cup

Exeter nearly pulled off a massive shock last night against Liverpool. I think Eastleigh could cause a shock and knock out Bolton. Where do you think the shocks will be?

Exeter wasn't really a massive shock given the circumstances. Exeter's team should be better than a team of academy players. Only one maybe two of the 7 Liverpool u21s will end up in league football in 2/3 years time - the rest will be non-league.

Wycombe, Eastleigh and Wolves away at West Ham. They are not really shocks of we predict them to happen though! Would many be that surprised if Villa and Bolton lost again they are both experts at it!

I think a better question is who cares?

Well I wasn't far off with my Eastleigh prediction, good luck for the replay. Not many major shocks yesterday, which is a bit of a shock in itself.

Angry is the word... Angry at a board that think they can easily steer us from safety on the cheap... That they have hung Curtis out to dry and will pin the relegation on him... (I think we will go down).

Numerous bad decisions have been made since Laudrup got the sack but the board are above reproach because of Tony Petty and all that...

I know this is a cup tie etc but the writing is on the wall and has been for some time. Sunderland Wednesday night is massive

Well Swansea probably would have won, if they had kept 10 players on the pitch.
