tottenham boss harry redknapp has claimed he will send the weakest team possible to old trafford, but really, i think he's just bluffing. he will probably give a chance to some reserves, but he will want them to show some fight. just like arsenal's carling cup boys, they know this is their chance to impress and they will want to at least force a replay. as for manchester united, they are also missing a fair number of first-teamers. eckersley, fabio, and james chester have been added to the squad, which really shows how strong united are gonna be tonight. in a tough match to call, i reckon tottenham will just have that bit more quality, and should be able to overcome the handicap.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on tottenham +1/1.5 @ 2.11 = $10.55


every season, middlesbrough appear to be struggling in the league, but yet for many seasons, they also appear to stumble their way through round after round of the FA Cup. They barely beat Barrow in the 3rd round, and now they face much tougher opposition in the form of wolves at the molineux. no easy task for boro, and the task is complicated by their injury crisis, which leaves them down to the bare bones. pogatetz, arca, digard and walker are all out. mido is a wigan player now, so they're a little short up front as well. it all points to it being VERY VERY bad for middlesbrough, and that's exactly why i think boro are worth backing on level ball. yup, u read right. boro do well when least expected, and from what i'm seeing, the money everywhere is on wolves. i think boro could actually do well in this one, considering richard stearman is out for wolves as well.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on boro level @ 2.07 = $10.35
