    You actually think Leeds fans are gonna have a pitch invasion???

    I know they have special bodyguards for Rio but I doubt much of anything will happen. I bet the minute's silence will be respected perfectly.

    They couldnt if they wanted to. There is gonna be an enormous police presence at that match. Same could not be said about Watford. Where the hell were the cops and stewards when the Luton nuts ran towards the home end. Looked like a complete free for all. You'd think that match would be effectively policed - seeing as those teams supporters despise each other.

    Exactly, that's why I didn't understand his comment.

    I was wondering about the lack of police presence as well. Very few police and the stewards couldn't do anything but watch. It took the riot police to get out there to get everything under control.

    It all started when Luton fans accused Watford's Chairman of being straight.

    Well, another round of the Worthington Cup is starting in 15 minutes, so I thought I'd throw in a bit of prediction.

    Best Bet For an Upset:

    I'll pick Spurs v. Cardiff.
    Also decent chances:
    Coventry City v. Rushden and Diamonds
    Chesterfield against West Ham.

    Teams to be taking a whupping:
    Brentford v. Boro
    Aston Villa v. Luton
    Man City v. Crewe
    Macclesfield v. PNE

    I doubt Leicester will make it past Wednesday, both the team and the date, in the Wortho Cup. Matt Elliott, Gerry Taggart, Brian Deane, Nicky Summerbee and Billy McKinlay will likely be out of the lineup with injuries, and Paul Dickov and Frank Sinclair are suspended. I doubt we'll even see the likes of Muzzy Izzet and Ian Walker, as Micky Adams has said Leicester will be focusing on the league this season. They played a strong lineup against Hull to avoid an embarassing upset, but tomorrow, it's a safe bet that Leicester's bigger names will be on the bench getting some rest for the long haul.

    Yeah, and Leicester managed to pull off one hell of a comeback...

    I would not have been surprised if both of them had been rested for the trip to Norwich in three days and based on Micky's comments about the Cup and League. But now that Leicester are through, I wonder what's next.

    Aresenal loses to Sunderland! 2-3. Arsenal whipped the living hell out of them just a month ago!! Now I understand they used a lot of subs but still, this is not good for them at all.
