Lawro's predictions

BBC Sport’s football expert Mark Lawrenson made predictions for all 32 ties in the FA Cup third round.

BAFTA nominated comedian and Ladhood star Liam Williams has made his predictions too.

Ladhood is based on Liam Williams’ experiences growing up in Garforth. As a Man Utd fan he idolised Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona – “I wasn’t hard in the way Cantona probably is but I could relate to his hot-headedness. Sometimes anger would get the better of me,” he explained. “But there was a certain poetry to what Eric did and I used to love the way he confused everyone. He is still doing it now actually.”

Ladhood is a coming-of-age comedy featuring Liam, who has flashbacks to his adolescence as he deals with situations as an adult in the present day.

The show is based in Leeds, which is where Liam grew up, but he supports Manchester United – despite the best efforts of his parents.

“I think I was a Leeds fan for maybe even a few weeks when I first got into football, when I was about five or something,” he told BBC Sport.

“My dad is from London and supports Tottenham, while my mum was not a huge football fan – but they got me a Leeds kit, so I was kind of into Leeds for a bit.

“But I was never able to get to a game so there was no way of watching them live because they were not on terrestrial TV either while Manchester United were, because they were in the Champions League.

“There was a boy who lived on my street, whose family were from Manchester and he was a United fan and he sort of inspired me to be one too.

“So it was not complete glory-hunting when I chose United, but there was probably a degree of that to it – this was the mid-1990s so I got into them at the right time with the double and treble seasons around the corner.”
