Player Ratings v The Team That Ate All The Pies
Arsenal got through a mainly uneventful 5th round tie v Sutton, there were no great performances by Arsenal players, and MotM went to a Sutton player. Sutton played well, but sadly failed to score, which might have made the match more exciting than the routine affair it became. The only memorable moment was the sight of Wayne Shaw (reserve Sutton keeper) eating a pie. Apparently the FA are now investigating the incident. Enough of this idle chatter, here are the ratings:

Prediction League Week 24 Airdrie 0 Vs.4 Livingston
One more loss to Livingston this season and they get to keep us on thier mantle piece. In the first half only a spectacular strike from Sean Crighton, after Adam Brown failed once again to track his man, separated the teams. The second half however was all Livingston and Airdrie crumbled under the onslaught.Livingston second goal came five minutes after the restart when Joe Gorman scored an uncontested own goal. Next up Was Danny Mullen who fired low fromeange to beat Ferguson and then in the dying minutes Nicky Cadden scored with a header. To add insult to injury Ryan Conry was red carded for a late challenge and push.
Blues Go Marching On
The Premiership leaders showed Liverfools how to successfully cope with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup, but they had to weather a Midlands storm for an hour before prevailing eventually against tired legs. The story might have been drastically different if the hosts had not hit the post with an early effort. In fact, Chelsea were all at sea for large portions of the contest, and it would have been no injustice if Wolves had led at half time. However, when the underdogs don't translate their dominance into goals, then their endeavours are always liable to end in tears - and so it proved.

Prediction League Week 24 Airdrie Vs. Livingston
Airdrie host Livingston tomorrow in what will be the fourth time the teams have met and Airdrie have taken nothing from them, now I don't say that to be negative as i'm one of those guys who measure a season over a season and try to measure a single game by it's merits. In life we wish our days away hoping for the weekend of the next holiday but when it comes to football we always look to the past to as Bruce Springstien sang "The Glory Days" well just like the song i've been told that those stories have all been told before and are getting boring!!!
