Following yesterdays draw for the FA Cup 5th round the bookies have installed us as massive favourites to retain the trophy.
Ladbrokes now have us at 7/4 to lift the trophy for third time in four seasons and with us facing Cardiff in the next round at the Bridge those odds look justified.
Man City are the nearest to us in the betting at 4/1 and Villa and Spurs are available at 7/1 and 8/1 respectively.
Another factor to consider is that apart from Portsmouth who the Cup two seasons ago no team outside the so called top 4 has won the FA Cup in 14 years, it has always gone to one of the top 4.
And as we all know, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man Utd have already been dumped out of the competition.
The omens are certainly looking good

I’d still look out for City though,to me they’re the only ones capable of chalenging us.
