Who do you think could surprise everyone and win the cup this year?

Only teams paying good odds should be included. i.e Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool not.

My pick- Spurs! - They are long overdue for a bit of silverware and if the draw works out ok for us we have the talent and class to do well.

Whats your pic?

To be honest, I think it will be one of the 4 above mentioned that will do it, but if I had to pick outside of that in a chance to get some money back from my bet, then I suppose I would put money on Middlesbrough or Spurs.

Newcastle have no chance under Souness in my opinion. Not this season anyway. They are in a rebuilding process themselves.

Spurs? Please...winning trophies isn't really your thing.

well Caz if Arsenal do not regain the Fa Cup then i hope Newcastle win as it would be a nice way for Alan Shearer to bow out , he deserves to win something after all he has done for Newcastle over the years.

Alan Shearer is a true professional, and someone that all young English strikers should try and follow.

I think Spurs have been impressive pre season, and still think they could be outsiders for the cup.

Everyone seems to forget Bolton ....
They was in the coca cola cup final 2 years ago and this year Borgetti will win the cup for them.
I think you get a good pay-back as well (if Im right)

For a wild card, i would throw in West Ham, they normally have a good run and end up in the last 16 , if they hit the last 8, they either get to the final or the team that beats them does, yes i know..... every rule has its exceptions [/b]

There are a lot of teams, who can win the FA Cup this year. These teams are Newcastle, Tottenham, West Ham, Middlesbrough and a team, which isnŽt expected yet..

Alright, we all know that you have a problem with West Ham United. I donŽt know why, just because your former manager knew, that the HammersŽ seat would be the best for him? YouŽll see next year, how life in Premiership is going, and youŽll see it for one single season, and then you can say Good bye again, and in the same moment West Ham is celebrating the spot for Europe... ,8)

I think West Ham will stay up this season, and have a longshot chance at the cup, thats what this threads about after all.

please not West Ham, I would never hear the end of it.

I would go for Spurs or even Wigan who have suprised allot of people so far.

The outsider that I feel could do it this year is Spurs. The outsider that I would want to win it if Arsenal don't is Newcastle.

it would have been nice to see newcastle win the fa cup but not a chance now with all those injuries if any outsider could win it i would say wigan who have shocked alot of people this year

I seriously doubt it knowing our luck a few more players will probably pick up injuries and then we will be screwed

I think Xabi Alonso will win the long shot bet this year....all the way from his own half! :shock: :lol:

The outsider that I feel could do it this year is Spurs. The outsider that I would want to win it if Arsenal don't is Newcastle. So I suppose I will have to amend my outsider as Spurs have been knocked out of the FA Cup. I'm now going for Blackburn.

You cannot look past Chelsea for me!

The Double - maybe the treble!

Yup. I think it can be Chelsea too, although I hate to admit it. They have the squad depth to last in all the competitions they are still in. Last year they were on their way to it until Kluivert had different ideas.

But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Rafa has some tricks under his sleeve. COME ON REDS!
