The Monster is back. And to make up for the long wait I have a bumper two pager for you. With the FA fixing the FA Cup draw AGAIN I shall be looking forward to the Semi Final between Arsenal and Tottenham, and how the FA have got it wrong with the venue and time. Also in the second page I shall be giving you my Monster view on the up and coming England World cup games. Just click on Sven's face at the bottom of the page.

APRIL 8TH 1:30PM OLD TRAFFORD.
THAT IS THE TIME AND DATE WHEN ARSENAL ARE DUE TO MEET TOTTENHAM IN THE SEMI FINAL OF THIS SEASONS FA CUP. THIS GAME WILL BE BIGGER TO THESE TWO CLUBS AND SET OF FANS  THAN THE FINAL ITSELF. THIS WILL BE THE THIRD TIME IN 10 YEARS THAT THESE TWO HAVE MET IN THE SEMI. AND AS WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE FIRST TWO SEMI'S THE FORM BOOK WILL BE GOING OUT THE WINDOW AND THE GAME COULD GO EITHER WAY. AND JUST TO SPICE UP THIS FIXTURE SOME MORE, THE YEAR ENDS IN A ONE AS ALL TOTTENHAM FANS HAVE NOT LET US FORGET, AND THE TWO CLUBS WILL BE MEETING EACH OTHER THE WEEK BEFORE IN THE LEAGUE.

BUT BEING AN FA RUN CUP THERE HAS TO BE A DOWN SIDE TO THE GAME. AND SURE ENOUGH THE FA HAVE NOT LET US DOWN. HAVE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE TIME AND VENUE ABOVE. THE IDOITS AT THE FA HAVE COME UP WITH THE BRAIN WAVE THAT AS THESE ARE TWO LONDON CLUBS THAT THE GAME SHOULD BE PLAYED IN MANCHESTER. AND NOT ONLY THAT IT SHALL BE ON A SUNDAY AND THE KICK OFF SHOULD BE AT 1:30PM. IN THE NAME OF GOD, JUST HOW MUCH MORE STUPID CAN THESE PRATS AT THE FA GET. WHAT THIS ALL MEANS IS THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE BOTH SETS OF FANS TRAVELING ON THE SAME ROUTE TO THE GAME AT THE SAME TIME. GRIDLOCK, AH YES I SHOULD THINK SO. THERE IS ONLY ONE TRAIN THAT IS GOING TO MANCHESTER THAT DAY, AND THAT HAS BEEN BOOKED UP LONG BEFORE THE DRAW WAS MADE. AND WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT NO EXTRA TRAINS WILL BE ADDED. THE FA WILL ARGUE THAT THE DEMAND FOR TICKETS WILL BE SO GREAT THAT SHORT OF PLAYING THE GAME AT CARDIFF, OLD TRAFFORD IS THE ONLY GROUND THAT COULD HOLD SUCH A GAME. MAYBE. BUT BOTH CLUBS WENT TO THE FA AND ASKED THAT IF THEY BOTH PAID FOR A NEW PITCH TO BE LAID AT WEMBLEY AT A COST OF 200,000, COULD THE GAME BE PLAYED THERE. WEMBLEY HAS BEEN TOTALLY UNTOUCHED OTHER THAN THE PITCH BEING DUG UP. SO GREAT WE HAVE A SOLUTION. WRONG. THE FA JUST TURN ROUND AND SAY NO.  TWICKENHAM IS ALSO A SOLUTION THAT THE FA REFUSE TO LOOK INTO.

SO YET AGAIN THE FANS HAVE TO SUFFER. THERE WILL BE CONGESTION GETTING TO THE GROUND AND NOT EVERYONE WILL BE IN AT KICK OFF TIME. WILL THE GAME BE HELD UP FOR 15 MINS TO HELP. NO CHANCE. REMEMBER THE SEMI ARSENAL PLAYED IN AGAINST WOLVES IN 98 AT VILLA PARK. THAT WAS JUST ONE SET OF FANS TRYING TO GET TO BIRMINGHAM. 5,000 DID NOT MAKE KICK OFF. IMAGINE TWO SETS GOING TO OLD TRAFFORD FOR A 1:30PM KICK OFF. AH WELL AS LONG AS THE FA ARE HAPPY.
WELL AT LEAST IT WILL BE A GREAT GAME. AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FINAL.
