Is that how fans of other clubs feel also? Why do you suppose this has changed?
I can’t speak for other fans Robby but for me it really was a big deal ,& I imagine footie fans around my age 53 & up do feel the same way,
Why has it changed? I think the kick off time moving from 3 o’clock to 5.10 didn’t help,the focus moving away from the English cups to the money driven European trophies certainly didn’t help.look at how heavily promoted the European trophies are and even the uefa cup started losing its appeal a while ago ( not to me by the way)
I still love the F.A cup and league cup & have yet to miss a final & even at 53 I often watch the match muted & have the local radio on listening .
