Well we got Burton Albion theres some discussions going on about weather it should be moved to another ground. I can see us getting through easily even though hes going to play the youngsters again unless he feels the need to put in some experienced players.

You've probably already heard about this but if you havn't then here you go:

Reds fan scoops a fortune
A Liverpool fan is today £25,000 richer thanks to the incredible last-gasp goal scored by Xabi Alonso against Luton at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.
Alonso's 65-yard super strike, which sealed an unforgettable 5-3 triumph over the Hatters, sent Liverpudlians everywhere into raptures but none more so than 42-year old Adrian Hayward.

Having notices that Alonso had tried a similar feat several times last season, Adrian had placed a £200 bet at odds of 125-1, with Liverpoolfc.tv official betting partner Paddy Power, that the Reds Spanish midfielder would score a goal from his own half this season.

"I've been a Liverpool supporter for 26 years and I noticed last season that Alonso attempted shooting from his own half quite a few times. I couldn't get it out of my head that he would eventually score like it," says a delighted Adrian.

"Since placing the bet, I've always had a vision in my mind that it would come when the opposing keeper came out for a corner in a cup game.

"I couldn't believe it when Luton got a corner and the keeper started to run upfield... I thought I was going to pass out. When it went in, I went crazy."

Paddy Power said: "What an inspired bet! I'm just wondering does Adrian have a time machine or something? How on earth could he have dreamt that would happen? But it's a lovely touch and we're delighted to cough up the cash. The Luton keeper is off the Christmas card list though!"

I'm not too bothered that we drew, the performance was a bit dissapointing though and Burton didn't really put up any sort of fight (attack-wise) in the second half.

We will do better at Old Trafford, I don't think anyone is expecting Burton to even get a sniff now that the Utd players are back on their own turf (and high quality turf at that :D). Should be a good game to watch, I hope it's on TV.

Yeah you're right, burton are pretty much toast now, buit a draw with Man U and a rematch at old trafford = big money game, they must feel like they've won the FA cup already, apparently they made 300k from the home game, and no doubt they will make closer to 500k from the old trafford game. ;)
