FA Cup weekend

Yes footie lovers it's 4th round weekend, when there's still a few chances of some upsets and those that have made it is far are counting the games they'd need to win to make it to Wembley on the fingers of one hand.

Last year of course, Cardiff made it all the way, only to fall at the final hurdle against a lacklustre Portsmouth side (I might have mentioned that games a few times on here).

So far this trip we've beaten Reading, but face a huge test on Sunday when we welcome Arsene Wenger and his young Guns to Ninian Park. It'll be a sellout for sure. Arsenal are bringing about 4,500 down, and the rest of the stadium will be packed by baying City fans.

Aaron Ramsey, who went to Arsenal from City last summer will be back and probably in the starting XI, and Joe Ledley, our current "nugget" will be hoping to impress. The South Wales Echo was reporting tonight that the Bluebirds had slapped an £8m price tag on him, and that West Ham were very interested. We wouldn't want to see him go, but you can't sniff at £8m big ones can you? Anyway, maybe if he has a rubbish match no-one will want him.

Me and Mini-Stats have had our tickets almost since the first day they went on sale, and we can't wait. If you can't make it to the ground, then you'll be able to watch it on TV. Oh. No you won't, it's on Setanta, and no-one subscribes to that.

Up the City!
