    Decent performance considering the paper thin squad we had. Rashford injured possibly is bad news. Love how he gives everything and plays when he is clearly nursing knocks, but he's been overdoing it and needs a rest. Pogba can probably give him some travel advice.

    City v United in the Womenís FA Cup was a good game but tough for a neutral with City being evil oil ballers and United Johnny-come-latelys who bought their way into the league at the expense of poorer but historically established clubs.

    I am just pleased we made an effort. Now we can focus on not getting promoted for the rest of the year.

    Just took a look at the half time scores. What happened to the magic of the fa cup? 5 no score draws out of 8...

    Clearly everyone is playing their first 11 and really going for it.

    The fa really need to change the number of games in a season to combat this. Fa cup games should have their own weekend not shift the prem to a couple of days before.

    I was really hoping Northampton v Derby would be the only replay so we get guaranteed TV money again, but looks like there might be a few at this rate!

    Can't fine teams, you'll never be able to make it stick. We have this conversation every year. The FA Cup us just finding its level, 3rd priority for most PL teams and 2nd for those outside. The lure of £££ in the PL is too great

    Iíd have taken a draw before the game. Not ideal to have another game but hopefully we can do the business at home

    I suppose it could be a problem. Newcastle could field their first team and still get fined :lol:

    Clubs have to register to compete in the FA Cup towards the end of the preceding season iirc, so if it was truly such a drag, why do the Special PL Clubs still bother

    Are Man Utd the only top flight team to opt out that year they went to the Club World Cup ?

    Since the introduction of the 25 man squad nobody really has a Ďshit teamí anymore. The closest you can get is fielding a load of youth but even then most teams would struggle to make up a match squad without recognised 1st team players. Some of the teams that used to get sent out in the old days were an absolute joke.

    But the riches of the PL trickle down to League One, apparently, so in a few years no doubt we will be rolling in all that filthy Sky money

    Iíve been saying this on here for 15+ years, but the thing they should actually do to make the FA Cup meaningful again is reduce the CL places and bring back the Cup Winners Cup.
