      Which is why I said it’s becoming like the League Cup now. I expect the day will come where the FA Cup is changed to something stupid like Carabao cup or whatever other rubbish they go for. Probably not for a lot of years yet but it’ll happen IMO.
      Just having the league cup causes the FA cup to lose its uniqueness. They should scrap the league cup and increase the prize money in the FA cup. The stupid amount of fixtures is weakening both domestic cups, watered down trophies now. I'd gladly take an early exit from both of them this year to win a real respected trophy.

      ask Newport if they think the FA Cup should be changed . its about the little teams the David and Goliath match up's. Football exists outside the top 5 or 6 clubs and in this Country there are 92 league Clubs why shouldn't fans of clubs like Newport enjoy their special day

      Nobody has said it should be changed, just that it isn’t viewed as prestigious as it once was.

      they have the usual culprits think it should be seeded its only not that relevant to the top teams because quite frankly the prize money is crap. Ask the lower league teams fans who have won this weekend they will still be buzzing.
      The Fa have done nothing to protect the Competition which is what the FA do well f**k things up.
      Should have made the winner the CL qualifier

      I'm fed up of being told how great it is to go out of this cup and that cup. It's helped us win all of one trophy since we last won it.

      This stage of it, is all about the minnows. It's their big day out. For the bigger clubs, it's a chore that you have to get through. Once you reach the quarters/semis, players and fans of those involved, take it seriously and treat it with the respect it deserves.

      Stop moaning woman! It's your Cup this year, been saying it for months you'll win FA Cup.

      F**k, hope you are right for once in your life.  ;D


       :roll: :roll: :roll: What the f**k! If I'd of known Klopp was sending his 3/4 string out would never of said. Clearly he didn't want to win it, I see his point for a weaken team (( priorities elsewhere )) but as a fan with no silverware for a long time I would still be disappointed.

      Bit sick with the prediction league too.  :f_wah: Once I saw the team sheet tried to change my score to 2-1 Wolves.  :f_doh:

      Ha! Well, I actually thought we were the home team until I’d seen the line ups and saw theirs before ours. Thinking a few days ago we were the home team I thought we’d scrape out a 2-1 win so went for that. But, as we were obviously the away team, turns out I predicted a 2-1 defeat. My first perfect in ages and it was a complete accident :D

      just remember who it was who killed the FA CUP it was UTD when they decided not to even put a team in it since then its been quite common for teams not to treat it as the greatest Cup Comp in the world because it clearly isn't anymore.

      6 teams from the EPL went out at the first hurdle, and we were the only one of the top 6. All the others qualified, and can still go to back to Wembley in the spring. The FA Cup may not be what it was, but it is the top domestic competition in the country and we should give it a decent shot.

      People say we won't remember it come May. I can remember us going out to Luton and Bolton as holders, I can remember us going out to Bristol City after a floodlight failure and 2 replays at home, which was the end of the line for Souness. So I will remember this, whether we win something else or not. This year is the 30th Anniversary of Hillsborough, and I personally believe that we owed it to the families to give it a proper go this year.

      The last 13 years of the club's Competition Prioritisation Scheme, has seen us bring the grand total of one trophy home in all that time. While I understand why competitions are prioritised against others, I'm personally fed up of being told year in year out, that it's a "blessing in disguise" to go out of them. The records at this club show it just doesn't work and therefore I just cannot agree with it.

      What a strange statement to post.
      I don't think you speak for the Families and if you ever hear of any of them speak they simply love Jürgen and the work he is doing here.
      Modern football is about two things The EPL and the CL both of which are watched globally. Tonight City and Burton are playing who is going to pay to watch that .
      Its not my choosing its just the way the game has gone.

      No it hasn't. The competition itself hasn't changed, the image has. The global fan base are as frustrated as the local fan base with our rate of success in recent years. I think most would just take anything by now. Just have something to show for it.

      I don't speak for the families, but with the year that's in it, we should have gone for it imo. Get out there, win the tie by half time, make the subs we need to, see the game out, onto the next one. That's what most of our main rivals did last week, some of them still have 4 trophies to play for.

      But we don't, and some of those who don't play on a regular basis, may never play for the club again, as we have to play  full strength sides from now until the end of the season anyway.
