'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No loser in Man Utd/Arsenal tie?

Rumours are emerging that the team whose revenue streams are affected adversely (*) in Saturday's FA Cup tie between Manchester United and Arsenal will be allowed to re-enter the competition at the quarter-final stage thanks to a seeded draw with all of the winners of the 5th Round ties who are not members of the 'big four'.

The draw will be re-made as many times as possible until the desired quarter-final line-up is obtained.

A spokesman said: 'This is not about greed, there are many more ridiculous things we could have done.

'We are merely implementing the new rule to ensure that no other club outside the 'big four' (soon to be known as the 'big three + Liverpool') can ever win a trophy again.'
