Cue Card On Cue Maybe One Last Time
No team from outside the top division has won the FA Cup during the Premier League era. In fact just two of the finalists since the 1992-93 season played outside the Premier League so the cream rises to the top. The Cup is almost always won by one of the big guns despite some shocks and giant killing in the early rounds.
After Chelsea and Leicester knocked out teams from the Championship last night 10 of the 14 teams left in the competition are Premier League outfits. Seven of the eight quarter-finalists could come from the highest tier of the game. There are few potential upsets in the four ties today. Our tips, LEICESTER CITY, are now 10/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Cup.
Swansea look vulnerable away to Sheffield Wednesday but should progress, possibly after a replay. Brighton are too strong for Coventry. The tie between West Brom and Southampton could go either way. Things could go from bad to worse for Manchester United as the head is telling the heart that HUDDERSFIELD are a massive price at 8/1 with bet365 to win at home today. It’s true that Huddersfield have conceded 23 goals against the top six sides over eight matches but that price is way too big to beat a team in a bit of a mess.
The match is live on television so the players may refer to a cue card as kick-off approaches. Not only is that a prompt in broadcasting it’s also the name of one of the most popular horses in training. After winning the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival in 2010 and a string of Grade 1 races the horse is now heading towards the end of a great career. Today there could be one last hurrah and in this case it is the heart saying CUE CARD should be backed at 10/1 with William Hill to win the Grade 1 Ascot Chase at 3.35pm.
