Fa-cup-final-2009

FA Cup semi-finals this weekend. Can Liverpool win a Merseyside Derby with their third keeper in net? Also, Van der Vaart, Bale, and Ade take on Torres, Lampard, and Mata in the other semi. Who will advance to the final? There's also some EPL this weekend, with United taking on Villa, and the Coupe de la Ligue final in France, with Marseille looking to win (they won't) against my club, Lyon. And Sunday is the 23rd anniversary of Hillsborough. JFT96.
