FA Cup 4th Round: United vs. Wigan

 Starshit

Hopefully we can shake off the last two cup defeats suffered by Liverpool, which ended all their hopes of silverware this season, and stick it right up Wigan. I just get the strange feeling that Liverpool’s current plight may raise the spirits at Old Trafford, even amongst the fans.

Prediction: Martial to do that thing he does sometimes and also Pogba to do that thing that he does sometimes. I like the vague ambiguity of this as both of those players have had good moments and bad moments this season so my prediction can’t really be wr

Having suffered back to back cup defeats if we were Liverpool, today’s game has taken on extra significance; if we win this, we win the cup. Of course that’s nonsense but perhaps that isn’t even the real issue here –  with Liverpool’s valiant exit, it begs the question ‘is the FA Cup even worth winning at all after it was devalued by evil Manchester United literally years ago but lets mention it all the same?’ Twitter’s Piers Morgan certainly feels it isn’t but then he is Spam (the meat product not the email) given sentience and a neck-tie so maybe we should just disregard everything he ever says, ever.

Wigan is a town with a pier in the north I think. To read more about the road to Wigan Pier, may I suggest The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell.

There will be no review section this week in a show of solidarity with Liverpool’s brave defiance in the face of cup competition. May God have Mersey (mercy) on their Scouse souls.

Prediction:  Anti-goals is the new goals, expect a deluge of not quite goals – Ibra to miss 4 or 5, Wayne missing spectacularly with an 86th minute chip, anti-goal of the month imho.

It’s great to see that us great United fans can concentrate on ourselves and not Liverpool losing so hard and rise above the petty nonsense of mentioning Liverpool losing so hard. Unlike the Liverpool fans, off the back of losing so hard, always banging on about us, even when they’re losing so hard. I missed the Liverpool cup games … what were the scores?

Originally formed in 1903, Wigan Pie-eating and Proud Northern Cunts changed their name towards the end of the last century, to represent exercise, after the local council, on an away day to The South, discovered healthy people.

Rooney should play for Wigon, lol cos Wig on. That wasn’t a typo. It was on purpose. For jokes. It’s like air to me. I can’t stop myself. Make me.

Prediction: I’m only joking Wigan. I have lots of family friends from Wigan. All unhealthy and love pies. I forgot my point. 0-0 United.
