FA Cup 4th Round Predictions

In today’s post I thought I would take a crack at predicting the results for the 4th round pairings of the FA Cup. Here we go….

Saturday’s Matches
Stoke City 1-3 Manchester City
Bolton Wanderers 0-2 Everton
Brighton & Hove Albion 2-4 Arsenal
Derby County 1-0 Blackburn Rovers
Huddersfield Town 0-2 Leicester City
Hull City 4-1 Barnsley
Macclesfield Town 0-2 Wigan Athletic
Middlesbrough 3-0 Aldershot Town
Norwich City 1-1 Luton Town
Queens Park Rangers 1-2 Milton Keynes Dons
Reading 3-1 Sheffield United
Manchester United 2-0 Fulham
Sunday’s Matches
Brentford 1-1 Chelsea
Leeds United 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Oldham Athletic 0-1 Liverpool

Yes, I’m predicting that the MK Dons will defeat QPR at Loftus Road. I also predict that Chelsea will draw against Brentford. This was a difficult choice as I never know what Chelsea team will show up.

Chelsea got what they deserved

While I like to watch soccer, I generally do not blog about soccer, but this Chelsea disaster is something to talk about.

The previous three managers for Chelsea F.C. have won the Premier League or the Champions League or international competition but yet have fired them all. That is insane to fire three coaches that have brought so much success to one club. That would be like hiring and firing three super bowl winning coaches to put this in American terms.

Saturday, I watched West Ham play Chelsea and getting what they deserved, a 3-1 defeat to West Ham. Now the fans do not like Rafael Benítez, well maybe you should have stuck with a good thing.

Someone has to win the games and someone has to lose them. Sometimes you have to ride out the rocky moments and success will come.
