Hull vs Arsenal: Can Bruce's Tigers add more misery for Wenger's Gunners?

The FA Cup 5th Round Replays take place this week and on Tuesday night it is Hull playing Arsenal at the KC Stadium in a 7pm kick off. Neither team managed a win in their last game and a defeat for Arsenal could leave Arsene Wenger clinging on to his job knowing unless he wins the Premier League title or Champions League then he could lose his job. The pressure is on!

Everton vs Chelsea: Blues looking to bounce back after Champions League elimination

The FA Cup Quarter Finals throw up an all-Premier League tie for the 5:30pm kick off this Saturday evening when Everton host Chelsea. Both sides have suffered disappointing seasons after they had promised so much. A win for the Toffees would ease the growing pressure on manager Roberto Martinez where as a victory for the Blues would offer consolation on their gut-wrenching exit from the Champions League in midweek to PSG.

Arsenal vs Watford: Wenger's quest for third consecutive FA Cup trophy win continues

The FA Cup will see holders Arsenal play their second game in the competition in the space of just a few days when they play Premier League rivals Watford in their Quarter Final clash at the Emirates Stadium in a 1:30pm kick off on Sunday afternoon. A win for the Gunners will put them within touching distance of an historic third FA Cup win in a row and a win for Watford would add more memories to what has already been a season that exceeded expectations.

Manchester United vs West Ham: Can Van Gaal take one step closer to an unlikely trophy win?

The final FA Cup Quarter Final of the weekend will see two teams in the top six go head-to-head when Manchester United welcome West Ham to Old Trafford for a 4pm kick off on Sunday afternoon. The prospect of an appearance in an FA Cup Final would deliver a memorable achievement for both teams but it goes without saying that the pressure is more on United to progress than the Hammers.

Asian Handicap: West Ham +0.5 @ 19/20 with BetVictor

Regarding the Man United v West Ham game the early team news is out.

van Gaal is throwing caution to the wind. He has indicated a new formation that he

would like to play against West Ham today.

It's a 4-4-2  ( YES, I hear United fans say), with this possible line up. 

He's gone for David DeGea and Sergio Romero upfront, in a new dynamic partnership.

After all, de Gea has been United's best player all season. Lets see if he can score some goals !

He has a midfield of Rojo, Darmian, Blind and 'Mike' Smalling.

The attitude behind these selections was fourfold. 

1) Lets see if we can unearth some new talent, and maybe sneak a first half goal from an unlikely source.

2) The midfield was so bad against Liverpool, that he'll give some other players a chance to impress.

3) Blind has played every position (except Goalkeeper) this season. Let's see how he does in the hole behind de Gea !

4) De Gea has a terrific left foot, probably better than that of the man van Gaal sold-off to Fenerbache (van Persie).

The back four is a blend of, well, er youth and youth. 

He has gone for  Borthwick-Jackson , Marcus Rashford,  Fosu-Mensa and Paddy McNair 

In making Rashford the defensive linchpin, van Gaal indicated that he looks like a natural !

I goal, he's trying a new experiment and using Maroune Fellaini. His ungainly unusual  style, and crazy afro is bound to intimidate,

When asked what the F___ was going on, one of his close assistants whispered the term 'CHAOS THEORY' !

A comment questioning the line-up was met with a 'death-stare' and a demand for an apology !

Well, that's my far side rant for the week !!!

 

OK SERIOUSLY

Man United are probably  going to end their season in the next 10 days or so. The league is gone, top 4 is gone.

Champions League long gone, and Europa league probably gone next Thursday. So all they have to play for is the FA. Cup.

For a club of this stature, it's pathetic.  In Fergie's days, United barely gave the Europa league a glance, and winning third prize (FA cup) or

fourth prize (League Cup, Milk Cup and now Capital Cup) was a semi failure (first and 2nd prize was League Title and Champions League).

There is no way that this United team can beat West Ham, if they play anything like they did against Liverpool.

They could'nt pass the ball, or retain it. They had no idea what to do against the 'ball carrier pressure'

 

 

This is an easy thing to overcome, and if you do it properly, the pressing team gets beat.

You move the ball, quickly, and as the pressing team overloads an area of the pitch you switch play quickly.

The ball moves faster than the man. It's not rocket science. Eventually they run themselves into the ground chasing the ball...

 

 

In the beginning of the season, the defense papered over the cracks. Now they are conceding goals, and not scoring.

United have had 1 shot at goal in their last 2 games played. 

West Ham look okish at 4.5 for the win, but the 1.91 West Ham double chance looks excellent.
