FA Cup Fourth-Round Predicitions: Liverpool vs Man Utd

By Chris Wright

Patrice and Luis, in happier times

This weekend is FA Cup fourth-round weekend, and the headline affair is the first meeting between Liverpool and Manchester United since that whole sordid Suarez/Evra ordeal swelled up, became painfully inflamed, burst through the abdominal wall of public consciousness and then scabbed over like a big racist hernia.

I can’t say I’m particularly looking forward to it myself, there’s an uneasy feeling in my waters – not because of the prospect of the game itself, but because of the atmosphere I can’t help but anticipate at Anfield after a month or two of heightened antagonism, baiting and hostility between two sets of fans that don’t need much of an excuse to go for each other’s jugulars.

Players from both sides have appealed for an air of ‘rivalry’ rather than ‘hatred’ from their respective supporters, and Sir Alex has kindly requested that all ribbing be saucy but above the belt at all times. Here’s hoping their pleas for decorum don’t fall on deaf ears. Which they almost undoubtedly will. Some chump will have spent the intervening weeks crafting and circulating a pithy chant or two, you can bet your bottom €uro.

Anyway, let’s not get bogged down in negativity. In the interests of hindsight and bragging rights, can we have your scores on the doors for the game itself please?

Pies says: I’m plumping for a tit-for-tat game that will see United go in 1-0 up at half-time and eventually run out as 3-2 winners by full-time – with at least one red card chucked in for good measure…

Liverpool 2-3 Man Utd

    United will win, Liverpool will have a player or two sent off unfairly, as usual.

  8. Tinez says:

    Why does anyone care about the atmosphere inside the ground. I couldn’t give a flying monkeys massive bollocks. It would amuse me no end for these two clubs to disgrace themselves again.

    Liverpool 2 – 0 Man United

  9. Archbishop Betty Snagcock says:

    yeah chris you better watch the highlights forest put in a blinding performance, really unlucky to go out

  10. Lady B says:

    Liverpool to scrape a win. Man U’s Employee of the Month is’t reffing, so it should be ok. 2-0 to Liverpool

  11. Where_JP_At says:

    It’s Liverpool. They will either lose 2-0 or draw nil-nil. Either way, they won’t score…

  12. zaan says:

    3-0 Man United. Red card for both teams late in the 2nd half.

  13. MaxMad says:

    Liverpool 2 – 1 Man Utd.

  14. KingEric7 says:

    @Tinez, how is getting called a “Negrito” being a disgrace?

  15. JF96 says:

    Liverpool win. Havn’t been beaten at Anfield for a very long time, the occasion always get to UTD in big games aswell. Centre backs usually have a shite game aswell. FORZA LIVERPOOL

  16. Aldo pikiki says:

    3-1 for united and rooney to shine most

  17. Redskywalker7 says:

    Im not looking forward to the atmosphere… I think it could go beyond chants and ribbing this time. Wouldn’t be surprised if a player and/or fans get hurt.

    Anyways.. 2-1 United. What do I win if I get it right?

  18. Questionable says:

    Liverpool 3 Utd 2. Gerrard to convert a pen (which he always does) kuyt and Bellamy to score in the second half, charlie adam gets a sending off for a brash challenge in the 70th odd minute. Hernandez somehow puts one away for Utd first half and maybe giggsy with the second utd goal around the 55 minute mark.

    That is my prediction

  19. pepe says:

    Man United win. 36-0. Rooney to score a tripple hat-trick, diouf to score a double hat trick, evra to score a double hat trick, obertan to get the ball deflected off his head from teh stands (twice!), and valencia, park and giggs to fill in the gaps.
    In any case, total annihilation of Liverpoo.

  20. Aaron noonan says:

    Liverpool to win charlie Adam to score a hat-rick and Craig Bellamy to score a triple hat-rick united
