The Law of Averages doesn’t get enforced round our way


At the moment, the last Fifth Round tie in this season’s FA Cup is going Manchester United’s way. In the Sixth Round, they would face bottom-placed Norwich City, away. United ought to win. As for the Bitters, they’re away at Newcastle United: a bit of a harder tie, but they too ought to win.

At which point we can dispense with a semi-final draw and just put us against them. Every single time the two Manchester clubs have both reached a semi-final, they have been drawn together and this will continue until eternity.

Equally, should the Magpies actually knock ut the Bitters, they are the one team in the semi-final draw that United will not be paired with.

Accept the word of one who knows.
