In the current accepted wisdom that the post lockdown Premier League is little more than friendly games that prove advantageous to the more technically able sides, this will be interesting to watch.

We'll either turn up and win, or lose 3-1. Can't see it going to penalties.

So at last we have a home game. Not that, on the whole, it makes any major difference right now. So we welcome Arsenal in the quarter finals of the FA Cup, and have every reason to believe in our ability to progress. 2 teams that seem to be struggling to get much in the the restart... yeah I know they won midweek...

Anyway...

Any team news?

JOC to return?

Obviously Egan and Henderson are back...

Forwards?

We've had a bad return, and our main rivals seem to have done ok. I'm not ruling out anything league position wise yet, but how great would it be to reach the semi finals of the FA Cup? I'm not dismissing Arsenal's threat, but thankfully they travel badly. Do I dare make a positive prediction... 2-1 blades victory.

Watch safe. ;)

1-0 Blades win in a staggeringly defensive performance.

McShitty with the winner.

I just knew... think everybody did... that we was going to loose at Man U. I don’t have that feeling today at all. I’m quite excited and upbeat about our chances. Maybe it’s cos we’re back at the Lane!!
2/3-1 Blades!

I'm ashamed to say for the first time in my Utd life I want us to lose.

If they are not letting us in what's the point of getting to a Semi?
This is like one of those fake war time Fa Cup games.

Fake Football.

Each to their own but I’d rather they did’t let us in than not let Arse fans in

That’s a very “I won’t be able to see us win so I’d rather us not win” mentality.

Are you actually a Blade?

Really disappointed with the lineup again.

McGoldrick & McBurnie have been our worst combination at the top of the pitch this season.

Other than that, I guess with it being an FA Cup Quarter with so much riding on it, he probably is trying to be risk-averse by not shaking things up.
But some of the lads are extremely fortunate to hang onto their places; Stevens & Norwood in particular.
