      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.

      I am so confused about the rules. I think I read somewhere at the start of this season that they only look at foot/leg to determine whether the player is on or offside, but I have seen plenty of times this season where goals have been disallowed because an arm was "offside".

      Think the offside rule is if a part of your body is offside that you can score a goal with

      No way that should have been reviewed

      It will ruin the game VAR

      Onside for me.
      His foot is beyond the Southampton defender maybe but the Southampton defender is leaning level with his foot

      I don't think anyone looked at that live and thought offside

      Yet VAR look at it for about 3 minutes and decide it is (wrongly )

      To overturn it should be clear and obvious
      That certainly wasn't that

      VAR can take as long as it likes. It would be much shorter though if the host broadcaster showed the replays sooner. Every goal must be checked, so that justice is done.

      In this incident the foot was clearly off. So the right decision was made, and a team could not benefit from a goal that should not be given.

      Southampton defenders shoulder is level with his foot

      Got it wrong

      Potentially ruined the game

      Should be to correct the clear and obvious if anything at all

      Miles ahead of Woodburn. Only regret with wilson is that it will have taken him to around 21/22 for us to realise how good he could potentially be.
