Take on the Professor: Two men, one trophy and an FA Cup final

| 20.05.2016

And so it all comes down to this. One match, one moment, one chance at claiming eternal glory and the Take on the Professor trophy.

So, quite a lot at stake then in this campaign finale.

After a season’s toil we’re left with two of the finest internet tipsters the world has ever seen (too far?).

In the red corner we have Stoke City fan @JohnShaw85 with his opponent Swansea’s very own @SteveDavies88

The not so small matter of FA Cup final between Crystal Palace and Manchester United is the subject in question.

Let’s take a look at our tipsters’ predictions…


To be fair to John he’s made it this far so who are we to scoff at his tipping?

We’ll leave that to this guy…

The Professor says: “Everything points to Manchester United ending their 12-year FA Cup drought this weekend. The Red Devils have won six of their last eight games, including a comfortable victory over Palace last month. And just to expand further, the Eagles haven’t beaten Man United since 1989, a run stretchering back 25 matches.”
