Lawro v Mystic Mug: FA Cup v Arsenal

Lawro has told BBC Sport that he thinks Arsenal will beat Villa 2-0 in the FA Cup this weekend.

"Arsene Wenger took a lot of stick from Arsenal fans for that substitution he made against Manchester United when he took off Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with a mystery thigh injury to be replaced by Andrey Arshavin, who of course could not stop United scoring their winner."

He goes on, that Arsenal have lost three on the trot now in the PL, however he says the pressure in the FA Cup will be less and he doesn`t see Villa being an obstacle 'no matter what sort of side Wenger picks.`

And on Villa? Nope, not a word! lol

Mystic Mug is in a flux. You see, I keep telling him we are going to win the FA Cup and he keeps telling me I live on Mars...! However, I`m the one who buys his balls the polish so he`s going with a narrow 1-0 win to the Mighty Claret and Blue knowing full well he`s just blown a weeks predictions on my ridiculous optimism!

What say you folks?

Hard one to call, if we give away chances like we did last week then we have no chance. The Gunners are the clasical up and down side this season. I think I am siding with Lawro on this one the Gunners to get into next round. COTVABU

So no matter what team Arsenal pick they will beat us? They're not that good anymore. Van Persie is the only real threat and he probably won't play. If the "real" Villa show up, I think we have a great chance. If the Swansea/Utd/Spurs Villa show up, then god help us all...

I predict a hard-fought loss, maybe 2-1 to Arsenal :( Partly because McLoser doesn't know how to set a team up to ATTACK!

got to depend on what side arsenal play if Van Persie plays with any 10 muppets we will lose if not then a repeat from Benty would be nice remembering his 2 from last season on this ground.

Villa win. First McLeish beat them last year, second their defense is weak, third its a good ground for us, fourth I agree with the RVP comment above fifth, three good results on the road 6. Lawro? Say no more. Thought we would win when the draw was made. Still think the same.

Draw and replay at Villa where we are shi*,so we had better win.Think they will beat us though.***** defence against VP.3-1 gooners,just being realistic.

Villa win and we'll score 3. Away form awesome, bent scored in last 2, keano buzzing, Ireland on song and gabby tearing the stand in full backs apart. I'm having fifty on it at paddy power. Oh yeah, and 5300 villans roaring us on.

2-1 to the gooners. No doubt Idiot will get the tactics wrong again as usual.
