Actually - I didn't get many emails this weekend compared to previous rounds ( See earlier post ) and perhaps that was because one of the writers stepped up and had a shot.
But I think that this weekend proved the case as to why betting on FA Cup matches is not really a profitable venture. Of course the underdogs road their luck, but the somewhat haphazard team selection process certainly helped their chances too.
There seems to be a lot of excitement about the FA Cup now, with many people saying that this is the best FA Cup ever - but despite that I will NOT be having a financial interst in ANY of the remaining games.
So good luck to Portsmouth, Barnsley, West Brom and Cardiff City and I'm sure that their fans will be eagerly awaiting the semi-final draw.
