On paper we should be beaten by about 12 – 0, especially after Monday nights results. But both clubs have points to prove after our last two Cup meetings. I would like to think that City do not appreciate the passion, determination and tenacity of Wigan and our supporters.
I hope for a bit of luck ie a Wigan penalty and a City player sent off that turns the game our way (it happens)!
And on that basis I predict a 2 – 2 draw.

Did we not beat them in the final and the following year in the semi-final?[/quote]
If you are on about City, yes we beat them in the final ( Every man and his dog knows that! ) but it was Arsenal who beat us in the semi final the following season! I think you might be losing touch with your mind!
Well I am 64 and quite possibly in the early stages of Alzheimers, so please be gentle with me. I still have vivid memories of Springfield Park.
