High Hopes for the Cup

High Hopes for the Cup

Opinion is divided about City's FA Cup prospects just before we go head to head with West Ham in the quarter finals on Monday night.We asked you:

How far will City go in the FA Cup?

Quarter Final: 16%

Semi Final: 34%

All the way - 50%
we're going
to win the Cup:

Well after yesterday's dire performance against Wigan I'm surprised there wasn't a late rush of voting for City to get knocked out tomorrow.

Tomorrow's match against the Hammers is massive for both clubs, but especially for City if we are to have any hope of European football next season; an issue that seems to be a high priority for a number of players currently in prolonged contract negiotiations.

It should be a cracking match with an proper cup-tie atmosphere judging by the level of activity at City's ticket office.

With a lot of first choice players set to return to the starting line up after being rested at the weekend, let's hope we see a much better performance and progress to the semis. West Ham will have other ideas though, so City need to beware!

Should be a close encounter. It seems as though all sides in the cup underperformed on the week-end, something the FA needs to look at. Players being rested does not give the spectators value for money. Let's hope this game is going to make up for it. City 2-1.
