In the unlikely event of us getting there, there won't be enough tickets to go round


Yes because it's an occasion. In the modern world the domestic cups are a hindrance to most teams, that's the sad fact. I admire Wolves because they have given it a go. The vast majority of teams don't. If they win it good on them, it looks good on their record but in reality they've won a competition that hardly any club cares about these days.

Wolves were very good first half, had most of the ball but only really crafted 3-4 chances.

Second half Johnson made 2 changes and we were all over them, ball was cleared off the line twice and our goalkeeper had a great chance to score.

Apparently we should have had a penalty for handball too- didn't see anything at the time from where I was sat so can't really judge.

Looks like Man Utd copied our blueprint from the Villa match, 2-0 half time then soak up the 2nd half pressure.
To be fair they haven’t done a bad impersonation of us either.

 If dinglehampton beat United they deserve to win the thing.

Liverpool and man u in the same cup run

Despite scraping past the shrews and even contest v Bristol c I can see them winning.


Only joking.... They're done  ;D

Always ifs and buts, yes we should have beaten that reserve Brighton team and would have if not for our mate Kyle, but Derby destroyed us at the Shrine so that wouldn't have been easy passage anyway. Good luck to those that are through, except the D1ngle5 of course.

I can see the Wolves beating United at their place in the quarters and if they avoid city in the semifinals, they’ll be in the final. Just hope City are as well, otherwise they’ll definitely win it in my opinion

If Swansea can see this out and then Wolves win at home kater tonight, they will be favourites to win the cup. Better get ready for a summer of gloating.

In the bright side, if United win, still a great chance of somebody like Watford or Brighton nabbing that last European place via the cup and taking it away from 7th place in the league.

City spawn victory over Swansea with a penalty that was never a penalty in a million years and a clearly offside winner. The standard of officials this year is worse than it has ever been. Roll on VAR.

I hate teams that play Hi Ho Silver Lining prior to kick off, it's so cringeworthy. They should be deducted twelve points and banned from all cup competitions.  8)

20m min gone and it so boring Wolves v Man Utd that is I was expecting a good game but this like watching paint dry.
OK if you support these teams but not a game for the rest of us.
