    This. The saddest part is that the FA is so perverse, deranged and backward in every way that it can't even see that
    its own cup is disappearing up its ar*e.
    I’d like the Albion to win it before it does.

      My take on this is it is not the fans but the clubs, all of the top 2 divisions do disrespect the fa cup now. Started when Man United were allowed to play in some meaningless south america competition about 10 years ago. That started the rot. A shame as it used to be such an epic and the fa cup run in 82/83 was the greatest time ever following this club for me

      The people showing disrespect to the FA Cup are those who schedule its games on a Monday night; those who pay telephone number money to show the Premier League, making it a must to stay in or get in; those who moved the final from being the only game at the end of the season, kicking off at 3 on a Saturday; those who made Cup Final Grandstand redundant; those who allowed semi finals at Wembley; those who allowed Spurs to have a season at Wembley; those who insisted on having penalties in the early rounds so as not to upset the season's tight schedule.

      In other words the very pricks talking us down.

      Exactly!

      You can add, making the draw for the next round before all the previous rounds games have been played, into that as well.

      I was there last night because I wanted to be there and had the opportunity to be there. I don’t have an opinion on others who didn’t come, it’s their choice....however....

      These radio shows and phone ins that are slating us, the fans, might want to realise that we had 2 away games over the Christmas period, one of which was the furthest away trip we have to make in the league this season. We also had to travel more than double the average distance that all the other Prem teams did over the same period. Money does not grow on trees and we can certainly never be accused of not backing our team after everything this club has been through.

      They can say our attendance was low, obviously, but we didn’t disrespect the cup at all. It was a unique set of circumstances coming together all at the same time that meant many people couldn’t go, that’s it.

      Funny how we are ‘under the Prem’ radar and written off or hardly spoken about but now they all want to talk about us!

      Yep - Bristol City have sold their full allocation of 7,680 - the highest away attendance the Etihad has ever seen.

      When at Withdean we had a hardcore following of 3k. So 12-13k is not so bad. I am enjoying life being in the Premier League but a big part of it is having the plastic fan following us and it is not so good but better to be positive but deep down it is annoying. I see people at games who slated and hated the Albion in the darker days and would spend the money on watching the London teams. It has to be good for the clubs long term future as hopefully these JCL's kids will become future fans. It does still leave a bitter pill but it has to be a positive having the sell out gates for PL matches. It was a grear atmosphere last night. The North Stand was awesome in getting behind the team.

      The fact that Palace didn't sell out their allocation either (despite the bullshit posts suggesting that they'd have sold four times that number if we'd given them the tickets) tells you everything about what this stage of the competition means to people.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      There is a similarity between the way United are blamed for starting the prostitution of football to Maggie Thatcher still being blamed for the state of the country in 2018

      The lack of social housing and the resulting clusterfvck that is Housing today IS the fault of Thatcher. Today's young generation, and the millions on Housing Benefit, are suffering as a direct result of the greed of Thatcher and her supporters all those years ago.
