Player Ratings v The Team That Ate All The Pies
Arsenal got through a mainly uneventful 5th round tie v Sutton, there were no great performances by Arsenal players, and MotM went to a Sutton player. Sutton played well, but sadly failed to score, which might have made the match more exciting than the routine affair it became.
The only memorable moment was the sight of Wayne Shaw (reserve Sutton keeper) eating a pie. Apparently the FA are now investigating the incident. Enough of this idle chatter, here are the ratings:

Martin Johnson Interview talks Farrell & the Cardiff Win
WORLD Cup winner Martin Johnson has singled out fly-half Owen Farrell as England’s trump card as Eddie Jones’ men chase back-to-back Six Nations Grand Slam titles. If selected this weekend by Jones to play against Italy at Twickenham, Farrell will win his 50th England cap; he has also already amassed over 500 international points, appeared at a World Cup in 2015 and toured with the British & Irish Lions in 2013 in Australia. Farrell was selected on a six-man shortlist for World Player of the Year in the summer and despite missing out on the top gong, he has become England’s Mr Reliable; both off the kicking tee and with his creativity behind the scrum. He has been promoted to England’s vice-captaincy role and skippered the side during the last-gasp win against Wales in Cardiff following the withdrawal of skipper Dylan Hartley after just 46 minutes. Farrell, who helped Saracens win the domestic and European double in 2016, has formed a formidable midfield pairing with Leicester-bound George Ford and is now the first name on England boss Jones’ team-sheet.

Prediction League Week 24 Airdrie 0 Vs.4 Livingston
One more loss to Livingston this season and they get to keep us on thier mantle piece. In the first half only a spectacular strike from Sean Crighton, after Adam Brown failed once again to track his man, separated the teams. The second half however was all Livingston and Airdrie crumbled under the onslaught.Livingston second goal came five minutes after the restart when Joe Gorman scored an uncontested own goal. Next up Was Danny Mullen who fired low fromeange to beat Ferguson and then in the dying minutes Nicky Cadden scored with a header. To add insult to injury Ryan Conry was red carded for a late challenge and push.

Bangladesh Finally Make Their Indian Debut
Contrary to some suggestions that India has snubbed Bangladesh by not hosting them for a Test series for over 16 years since their Test debut back in 2000, which incidentally occured versus India, the BCCI which was instrumental in getting Bangladesh Test status has been a benefactor for the Bangladesh cricket board all these years since.

Pujara leads a strong Rest of India team against Gujarat starting tomorrow January 20th at Cricket Club of India's venerable Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Recently the Rest of India has done really well against the Ranji Champions with the Rest winning 9 out of the previous 11 ocassions. This time too the pattern is likely to be the same.

Williams team silly season
With Technical Chief Pat Symonds confirmed as leaving the Williams team and with continued reports that Paddy Lowe will be leaving Mercedes to join Williams, as well as the uncertainty as to whether or not Valtteri Bottas will leave the team to be replaced by Felipe Massa, it is certainly turning out to be Williams' own silly season. This is not the best of situations as the team prepares for the 2017 F1 season, a season that will see some of the biggest changes in Formula One in recent times.
Williams 2017 driver line-up uncertain
Recent reports have the Williams team considering to allow Valtteri Bottas to leave the team to join Mercedes in 2017.

Is any decision regarding Valtteri becoming more of a financial decision with the Williams team gettting a reduction in the cost of their Mercedes engines. If the Williams team allows Valtteri to move to Mercedes is it going to be a decision that they live to regret?
