      Ever since the FA threw its lot with the 'new' Premier League or 'Super League' back in the early 1990s, the writing was on the wall for the status of English football. The FA Cup has been one of those institutions which has suffered as everything is geared towards the supposed elite of the top division and European glory.

      The FA Cup, the League Cup, the Associate Members Trophy (Checkatrade these days, with its farcical sop to top clubs entering their U23s), non-League clubs, community clubs and grassroots football have all had their promises broken by the FA in trying to held them survive and thrive. It's not a sport anymore, it's one-armed bandit hypercasino.

      The principle reason the likes of us still love is (1) because we do and (2) because we have to. I go back to Stephen Grant's rant at Komedia back in April that football fans are the only ones daft enough to not look reality in the face, and instead stick their fingers in their ears and go 'la-la-la - it's not happening', and do everything they can to put right that which serves their club best. That's what happened with us. The administrators running football have no more care and consideration for the sport than an overgrown pig zapped out on horse tranks.

      People 'showing disrespect' for the FA Cup is not only disingenuous, it's also a deliberate ploy by the administrators to have everything governed around the top six. Or rather, if it wasn't deliberate, it just goes to show they have never had a clue what they were doing in the first place.

      14,000+ on a Monday night to see our reserves up against Palace's at £25 a ticket? Excellent turnout if you ask me....

      The FA Cup has sort of been in decline since the days, when the so called big clubs started to field under strength teams, when they've been concentrating in other more lucrative competitions.
      You cannot blame the fans at all, it's just another excuse of the failure of the FA not standing up to the PL powerhouse.
      The coverage of Albions FA Cup day, is as good as it gets, that's what it's all about.
      Nowadays, the FA Cup comes up short IMO
      Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball.
      From Soho down to Brighton, I must have played them all.

      Expand the CL and give the FAC Winner a place, that'll sort it out in a nano second

      Better still keep the CL as is and reduce PL places to 3
