    I bet you're bloody delighted! As a Cardiff fan that is seasoned in the trips to Wembley for cup games I can only say you'll have a belter of a day. Enjoy it!

    Thanks mate. Yes, hoping I can get a ticket and have a good weekend away.

    Have to say that the lad deserved to miss the last pen, after blocking Murray off for their first goal.

    Milwalls dirty tactics didn't pay. In the end Karma got them, Hans

    Are these the most underwhelming set of FA Cup Quarter-Final fixtures since the 2007/08 season when my beloved Cardiff lost in the Final to Portsmouth? Quite possibly! Still, there's some value to be had if we dig a little deeper. Here are the odds for these games. Give us your tips for these games. Let's try and take some profit from these games. :ok

    Well I would have agreed that these quarter finals were not the most attractive, but all turned out to be decent games. The SWA V MC & MIL V BRI in particular were proper, thrilling, old fashioned cup ties. Wolves put on a great show from their fans & players. They've knocked out both Reds too.

    The magic of the cup is well and truly alive this season!

    Yes fair play mate, Brighton defended very well throughout and not much could be done about the 2 incredible finishes.

    Murray is still a class act, great goal and doesn't celebrate.

    Both M23 derbies have been a horror show for Palace this season, I just hope we don't meet in the cup now, I have had enough seaweed incursions for the time being.

    Cheers pal, love the banter from you:notworthy Always funny,

    Yes, it would be bizzare if they met in the cup at Wembley! Got a tough away game at the New Den first though. It would be great to see a club outside the Top 6 win it tho:ok

    I hope so to but I think it may be difficult, there's a rumour going round that 11 clowns from the south coast are gonna invade the pitch at 12:30.

    Well you are on fine form this weekend! Haha

    11 clowns? Well they didn't do too bad did they:loon

    Knockaert the magician silenced 25,000 with a wave of his magic wand, 

    To be honest, I didn't see that coming, but then again, that's football. Expect the un expected!

    To be honest @StevieDay1983 I feel this is a pretty terrible game from a betting perspective, if I had to pick something from 1X2 here it would be X @ 3.6 as home win seems to be priced correctly.

    I must stick to the discipline of not getting heavily involved with betting on derby games as teams can behave differently to what they might do normally. It tends to add another element of uncertainty.

    As for Palace in general; I like the signing of Batshuayi, he's hit the ground running and has the ability to score out of nowhere. Perhaps one of those strikers that isn't so good when he gets chances delivered on a plate but he's an upgrade on anything we had before and makes us more threatening in the final 3rd. Once again we see Palace performing a lot better in the 2nd half of the season rather than the 1st.

    I wouldn't bother asking @Tiffy what he thinks about Palace V Brighton. He's become a nomadic glory hunter who scours the south of England for teams to prey on after he's drained the vital essence of his previous muse. My latest projections suggest he will have a massive existential crisis in 2022 when Brighton play Torquay in league two where at which point he will go and support the Ilfracombe Indefatigable's (a newly-formed step 7 outfit who have links to the Cuban government).


    Haha, that's very funny:loon Yoi could well be right! I'm liking any team with links to the Cuban government. It'll be free cigars after a win!

    I can't see Brighton getting much tmrw, you've called it right, and I can see Palace getting a 1X here. They have picked up massively recently.

    Anyway, I'm off to Home Park for some more glory hunting tmrw. LUTON are in town, and I can only get a ticket for the home end as the away end is sold out!

    Whateve happens at Selhirst, I just hope that the game passes without any trouble.

    I like your optimism. I'll have some of what you're drinking!

    @Tiffy, Cardiff's awful results reminded me... what the hell is going on down your way? 5 losses and 2 draws in your last 7 games. Welcome to the relegation dog fight!

    Thanks mate!

    Yes it's a bit worrying, but we have played 1st,3rd & 8th (In the 8 match form table) at home, so some teams going very well there. I still think there will be 3 teams worse than us, but it will be a tight run in. 

    I have taken my eye off the ball now I have moved to Devon, and am loving watching the Gulls at Plainmoor. It's a real battle between them and Woking for top spot this season.

    I am off to Plymouth next Saturday when LUTON visit to catch up with a few mates who are coming down too.

    But for Brighton, I can see them finishing 17th, but only just!

    Leicester is expected to face a heavy defeat from Crystal Palace with 4-1, defeating Brighton. Opportunity to get the points of victory

    I'd leave this game alone. Brighton are desperate for a win, and it could well come tonight. Leicester are going through a managerial change at the moment, so there is no way of knowing what mood is around the camp. Rodgers hotly tipped to leave Celtic & take over.

    So I thought I would give an ante-post update given we are pretty much at the halfway stage of the season looking at how the bets are going and what I think will happen in the leagues come Aprll.


    National League

    Barnet 1pt e/w @ 14/1 with Bet365/Ladbrokes/Coral/Paddy Power/Betway/BetVictor

    AFC Fylde 1pt e/w @ 16/1 with Paddy Power

    Ebbsfleet 0.5pts e/w @ 25/1 with William Hill

    Braintree to be relegated 2pts @ 7/4 with 188bet/BetVictor

    Braintree to finish bottom 1pt @ 13/2 with Skybet

    I was close to putting Leyton Orient up, but went with Ebbsfleet instead and obviously that was a big mistake, but then I had no idea of the off the field issues at the Kent side which only came to light in recent weeks. To be fair to Gary Hill he has improved them since he came in and they are on the edge of the play-offs, but they won't be finishing in the first 3. Neither will Barnet who have had a bad time of things injury wise. I think they will improve in the 2nd half of the season, but I'm not sure it will be enough to make the play-offs. Fylde are still in contention to finish in the top 3, but losing to Dover on Saturday wasn't great when they could have made 3 points on the top 2. As for those top 2 although both lost on Saturday I still think the title will go to either Leyton Orient or Salford. For me both look to have that little bit more class than anyone else in the division. Salford are slight favourites and that is probably right although I wouldn't want to back either. Harrogate are in 3rd and although I thought they would do OK, I certainly didn't have them in the title hunt. They don't seem to be showing signs of a drop off in form and they should reach the play-offs. Wrexham should as well although they need to get the right manager in. If they do they are the team most likely to push the other two although I can only see them finishing 3rd at best. Solihull have been a big surprise. I knew they wouldn't go down, but to be in 5th at this stage is amazing. They look a good side and unless they get an injury crisis I can't see them not finishing in the play-off positions. 

    At the other end of the table Braintree have been every bit as bad as I thought they would be. They already look like they will be going down and they are bottom by 5 points so there is a decent chance of the 13/2 on them to finish bottom coming in as well. Some of the other teams around them look capable of improving although I think Maidenhead will go down. Bromley, Aldershot and Halifax look possible relegation contenders. Aldershot will be relaying on their home form to stay up because their away form is awful. Bromley have added players last week, but they really need to improve fast. Halifax are really struggling to win games especially away from home and their fans will be looking over their shoulders.

    National League South

    Billericay 1.5pts e/w at 10/1 with BetVictor (already advised)

    Concord Rangers 0.5pts e/w @ 25/1 with William Hill & BetVictor (already advised)

    Welling 0.5pts e/w @ 20/1 with Bet365

    Well it was all going so well with Billericay looking hard to beat and then players have started to leave. Quite how fare it will go I am not sure, but Bet365 have pushed them out to 6/1 with seems a massive over reaction to me. The only player so far I am unhappy about leaving is Jake Robinson and even with a £10k budget that will still put them in a strong position. I do find it hard to see them winning the league now though, but they should certainly remain competitive. I also think they will be better off without Tamplin involved. I don't think the players respected it him at all and the win over Eastbourne on Saturday showed they are still more than capable of holding their own. I think Torquay will win the league though and they have been really impressive since Gary Johnson took over as manager. It is their's to lose now for me. I didn't fancy Woking at all for the title, but with the Cup run they may have money to spend so I am not so against them as I was. My other two tips in Welling and Concord are 4th and 5th so are giving us a great run for our money and I will be disappointed if at least one of my 3 bets don't hit the frame.

    National League North

    Southport 1pt e/w @ 10/1 with Bet365/Betfred

    Boston United 0.5pts e/w @ 20/1 with William Hill

    Alfreton 0.5pts @ 25/1 with Betway

    A bit of a disaster for the 2nd year running in this league although at least Boston have some sort of chance of getting involved. Southport are now showing why I put them up, but its about 3 months too late sadly and Alfreton after a good start have been hopeless for weeks. I was close to putting Chorley up as a bet and they started the season very strongly. They have had a bit of a wobble in recent weeks though, but in an open division they still have a chance. Bradford are currently top which is a big surprise for me. My gut is they won't stay there, but have a good chance of being in the play-offs again. I backed Spennymoor at a huge price last year and didn't touch them this time around, but they are certainly bang in contention. Chester, Altrincham and Kidderminster would be the other possible winners for me. After Saturday's win Kiddie may have gotten over their downturn in form and they would seem to be the ones that are over priced to me.

    Bostik Premier

    Kingstonian 1pt e/w @ 20/1 with Bet365

    Margate 1pt e/w @ 10/1 with Betway

    Enfield 0.5pts e/w @ 40/1 with Bet365

    Dorking 0.5pts e/w @ 33/1 with Bet365

    I said in the preview the bookies had made a complete mess with pricing this league up and so it has turned out.AFC Hornchurch were the favourites and they sit in 16th place with just 19 points and 2nd in Whitehawk are currently bottom having won just twice all season! My main bet Kingstonian started badly and it is a shame because they have got themselves in contention in recent weeks and I still wouldn't be ruling them out of getting into the 3. Dorking are currently top and it would be great to nail a 33/1 chance. They have cash to spend so I am hopeful they can do it. Enfield are in contention as well and giving us a good run for our money. Funnily enough Margate are the only ones who probably won't be involved as they have looked a mid-table side so far. Worthing were 40/1 and are now favourites and given they have at least 3 games in had over the teams around them it is easy to see why. It will be interesting to see if they can carry on in the same form over the rest of the season. There are a handful of other teams in contention, but Haringey could be the most dangerous. They have been in good form since their FA Cup run came to an end and if that continues they could play a part.

    Evo-Stik League Central Premier

    Kettering 1pt @ 6/1 with Betway

    Kings Lynn 1pt @ 13/2 with Betway

    Leiston 0.5pts e/w @ 12/1 with Betway

    Rushall Olympic 0.5pts e/w @ 20/1 with Bet365

    This league already looks a two horse race with Kettering and Stourbridge. I would be disappointed if Kettering didn't win it from here to be honest. Kings Lynn's slow start has cost them but they should get in the play-offs. Tamworth were the favourites for this division but they have struggled a bit and at best are outside shots at a play-off place.

    Evo-Stik League Southern Premier

    Weymouth 2pts @ 13/2 with Bet365

    Salisbury 0.5pts @ 7/1 with Bet365/Betway

    Taunton 0.5pts e/w @ 18/1 with Bet365

    I would be amazed if I don't have the winner of this league as Taunton are top with Weymouth in 2nd and Salisbury in 3rd. The Met Police have games in hand and have only lost 2 games, but it is hard to seem them staying with the other 3 over a whole season. Gosport were in single figures and they have done badly as I though they would.

    Evo-Stik League Northern Premier

    South Shields 2pts @ 3/1 with Bet365/Betway

    Basford 1pt e/w @ 10/1 with Bet365

    Gainsborough Trinity 0.5pts @ 7/1 with Bet365

    South Shields' away form has been pretty shocking at it might stop them from winning the league, but if they can improve it over the 2nd half of the season then they have a chance. Farsely are best positioned and they are the right favourites for me at the moment. Warrington are going well again and should go close. Nantwich and Scarborough are 1st and 2nd, but they have played more games then everyone else which isn't going to help their cause. Gainsborough and Basford are in with a chance as well so all is not lost on either of those two.

    This are my ideas of the winners of the leagues now.

    National League - Just siding with Salford, but it should be a great battle between them and Orient.

    National League North - Hard to call but I will side with Chorley

    National League South - Torquay

    Bostik Premier - Dorking

    Southern League Premier Central - Kettering

    Southern League Premier South - Weymouth although Taunton will push them close.

    Northern Premier - Farsley

    Jumping on my "Torquay to win the league" bandwagon are you now!:cheers

    I went to the AFC Wimbledon V Fleetwood match last night. It's probably the worst game I have ever seen, and AFC were simply awful. No ideas, no pace, nervy at the back. The first pass was backwards, there was nothing going forward. Fleetwood weren't much better but did have a bit more about them. 

    I think they got their footballing style from Centre Court down the road. You felt like you were watching tennis not football. It's amazing how poor the  standard is, and it makes you realise how technically bad we are at this level.

    On the plus side, the fans were nice to chat to, and the liver, bacon & mash at the Fay Boy's cafe was worth making the trip for.

    On rhis showing, I think Wet Spam could put the tea ladies out on Saturday and still run out comfortable winners. I'll be backing

    WHU HT/FT & O2.5 goals

    I just really don't believe that happened!

    I won't be betting on ANY cup completion again, unless it for the underdogs
